The t(16;21)(q24;q22) translocation is a rare but recurrent chromosomal abnormality associated with therapy-related myeloid malignancies and a variant of the t(8;21) translocation in which the AML1 gene on chromosome 21 is rearranged. Here we report the molecular definition of this chromosomal aberration in four patients. We cloned cDNAs from the leukemic(More)
The t(11;17) has been described in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and the AF17 gene was previously cloned as a fusion partner of the MLL gene in t(11;17)(q23;q21)-AML. We analyzed one patient with de novo AML and one with therapy-related AML with t(11;17)(q23;q25) and identified the AF17q25 gene on chromosome 17q25, a putative septin family(More)
Peritoneal carcinomatosis is a frequent cause of death in patients with advanced gastric carcinoma. Because chemokines are now considered to play an important role in the metastasis of various malignancies, we hypothesized that they may be involved in the development of peritoneal carcinomatosis by gastric carcinoma. Human gastric carcinoma cell lines,(More)
CXCL16 is a new member of the chemokine superfamily, which exists in a transmembrane as well as a soluble form. Its receptor CXCR6 is detected on CD4(+) T cells, CD8(+) T cells, and natural killer T cells. Here, we report a significant correlation of CXCL16 expression by tumor cells with the infiltration of T cells and prognosis in colorectal cancer (CRC).(More)
Japanese traditional herbal medicine (Kampo) have been used to improve the general physical condition after surgery and to mitigate the side effects of radiation and chemotherapy in tumor patients. Juzentaihoto (JTT) consists of ten medical herbs, and is also called Shi-Quan-Da-Bu-Tang in Chinese herbal medicine. Among Kampo medicines, JTT has especially(More)
