During the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS), activated B-cells cross the inflamed endothelium of the central nervous system (CNS) to exert their effector functions, probably associated with the action of several adhesion molecules. B-cell mobilization towards the CNS already occurs after the first demyelinating events suggestive of MS, known as… (More)
In the present study we showed that transitional B cells of patients with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) and relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RR-MS) are reduced in the peripheral blood (PB) (5.5- and 3.7-fold, respectively). In addition, these cells appeared to up-regulate different integrins (α4 and β1). These observations were associated with a… (More)
We have conducted a retrospective study on 251 patients from three centers in France and Switzerland between 2004 and 2010 with the goal to evaluate the impact of HLA-DRB3/B4/B5 allele mismatching after HLA-10/10-matched unrelated allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Fourteen (5.5%) patients receiving HSCT from an HLA-10/10-matched… (More)
A novel HLA-B allele, B*39:93, was identified in a French family.
In the attempt to harmonize clinical practices between different French transplantation centers, the French Society of Bone Marrow Transplantation and Cell Therapy (SFGM-TC) set up the third annual series of workshops which brought together practitioners from all member centers and took place in October 2012 in Lille. Here we report our results and… (More)
