World Health Organization grade II gliomas (GIIG) are diffuse, slow-growing, primary neuroectodermal tumors that occur in the central nervous system. They are generally seen in young individuals and are slightly more common in Whites and males. Most patients present with seizures but neurologic deficits are rare. Magnetic resonance imaging best detects GIIG(More)
It has been shown that mice with a targeted mutation in the Ets-1 gene exhibit increased B cell terminal differentiation to IgM-secreting plasma cells. Here, we show that mice, formerly described to lack Ets-1 protein, actually express low levels of an internally deleted Ets-1 protein. Mice harboring this Ets-1 hypomorphic allele possess very few marginal(More)
CD1 molecules are MHC class I-like glycoproteins specialized in presenting lipid/glycolipid Ags to T cells. The distinct cell-type specific expression of CD1D1 plays an important role in the development and function of NKT cells, a unique subset of immunoregulatory T cells. However, the mechanisms regulating CD1D1 expression are largely unknown. In this(More)
Haemolytic uraemic syndrome (HUS) and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) are closely related disorders characterised by non-immune microangiopathic haemolytic anaemia and thrombocytopenia. Thrombotic microangiopathy is the underlying pathologic lesion in both syndromes. Under physiological conditions, platelets bind to endothelium via von Willebrand(More)
The exon 14 JAK2 V617F mutation has been well established as a driver mutation in polycythemia vera (PV) and other myeloproliferative neoplasms. JAK2 exon 12 mutations have also been implicated in PV, although patients with these mutations may show isolated erythrocytosis. Recently additional JAK2point mutations have been described-all in regions encoding(More)
In the S0313 trial, we evaluated the impact of adding ibritumomab tiuxetan consolidation to 3 cycles of standard cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, vincristine, and prednisone (CHOP) chemotherapy plus involved field radiotherapy (IFRT) in patients with limited-stage aggressive B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (LD-NHL). Patients with at least 1 stage-modified adverse(More)
