Combined analysis of ZAP-70 and CD38 expression as a predictor of disease progression in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia
Prognostic predictions in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) at early clinical stage are based on biological disease parameters, such as ZAP-70 and CD38 protein levels, genomic aberrationsExpand

miR-34a as part of the resistance network in chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
17p (TP53) deletion identifies patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) who are resistant to chemotherapy. The members of the miR-34 family have been discovered to be direct p53 targets andExpand

Cellular origin and pathophysiology of chronic lymphocytic leukemia
Unmutated CLL derives from unmutated mature CD5+ B cells and mutated CLL derives from CD5+CD27+ post–germinal center B cells.

Association of a novel regulatory polymorphism (-938C>A) in the BCL2 gene promoter with disease progression and survival in chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Bcl-2 plays a key role in the regulation of apoptosis. We investigated the role of a novel regulatory single-nucleotide polymorphism (-938C>A) in the inhibitory P2 BCL2 promoter in B-cell chronicExpand

ZAP-70 expression is a prognostic factor in chronic lymphocytic leukemia
B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) is a heterogenous disease with a highly variable clinical course. Recent studies have shown that expression of the protein tyrosine kinase ZAP-70 may serveExpand

CD38 is a signaling molecule in B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia cells.
The prognosis for patients with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) is generally less favorable for those expressing CD38. Our working hypothesis is that CD38 is not merely a marker in B-CLL,Expand

Differential expression of chemokine receptors in B cell malignancies
Chemokines are a family of 8–10 kDa proteins with a wide range of biological activities including the regulation of leukocyte trafficking, modulation of haemopoietic cell proliferation and adhesionExpand

Evaluation of ZAP‐70 expression by flow cytometry in chronic lymphocytic leukemia: A multicentric international harmonization process
The clinical course of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is heterogeneous with some patients requiring early therapy whereas others will not be treated for years. The evaluation of anExpand

HLA-G expression is associated with an unfavorable outcome and immunodeficiency in chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
The human leukocyte antigen G (HLA-G) molecule exhibits limited tissue distribution and exerts multiple immunoregulatory functions. Recent studies indicate an ectopic up-regulation in tumor cellsExpand

Protein Kinase C-β-Dependent Activation of NF-κB in Stromal Cells Is Indispensable for the Survival of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia B Cells In Vivo
Summary Tumor cell survival critically depends on heterotypic communication with benign cells in the microenvironment. Here, we describe a survival signaling pathway activated in stromal cells byExpand
