In humans CD34 is a valid and reliable marker for hematopoletic stem and progenitor cells. In general, solid tumors, with the exception of endothelial cancers, do not express CD34. Accordingly, immunological selection of CD34+ hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells can be used to remove CD34- malignant cells in the setting of autotransplantation. To rule out(More)
Ly-49A is a member of the Ly-49 family of mouse natural killer cell receptors that inhibit cytotoxicity upon recognition of their ligands, the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I molecules, on the target cell surface. Although Ly-49A has an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition motif (ITIM) in its cytoplasmic tail, relatively little is known(More)
We describe interstitial pneumonitis induced by bicalutamide prescribed to treat prostate cancer. A 78-year-old man with severe lower paralysis and a bladder/rectal disorder was referred to our hospital. Prostate-specific antigen was elevated to 1418 ng/mL at that time and magnetic resonance imaging revealed multiple bone metastases. A rectal examination(More)
We report a 62-year-old male with extensive disease small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) who was successfully treated with double high-dose chemotherapy supported by autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (auto-PBSCT). This patient achieved a partial response with 3 cycles of induction chemotherapy. After the peripheral blood stem cell mobilization,(More)
