Transforming growth factor β1 (TGFβ1) is an important immunosuppressive cytokine. Defects in its production by lymphocytes and the failure of TGFβ1 to regulate immunological functions have been described in SLE. Expression of TGFβ1 and the related signaling pathway was studied in the peripheral lymphocytes of SLE patients. The total plasma TGFβ1 level in(More)
OBJECTIVES Accumulating evidence suggests that non-T, non-B cell CD4+CD56+ neoplasms with lymphoblastic morphology include clinically and immunophenotypically diverse entities. Although their cells of origin or classification are still controversial several entities clearly represent a distinct type of neoplasms that are clinically aggressive. METHODS In(More)
INTRODUCTION Biosimilar versions of filgrastim [recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF)] are now widely available. To date, biosimilar rhG-CSF has demonstrated a comparable quality, safety and efficacy profile to the originator product (filgrastim [Neupogen(®)], Amgen Inc., CA, USA) in the prevention and management of neutropenia.(More)
The phenotypic analysis of human umbilical cord blood (CB) mononuclear cells is important to study their maturity and differentiation regarding their transplantable capacity. In this work we have studied differential expression of B cell antigens on CD5-/HLA-DR+ B cells (B1b, B2) and CD5+/HLA-DR+ cells (Bla) from the CB (n=6) and adult peripheral blood (PB)(More)
BACKGROUND Prognostic risk stratification according to acquired or inherited genetic alterations has received increasing attention in acute myeloid leukemia in recent years. A germline Janus kinase 2 haplotype designated as the 46/1 haplotype has been reported to be associated with an inherited predisposition to myeloproliferative neoplasms, and also to(More)
Multidrug resistance is one of the mechanisms how to explain failure of chemotherapy in patients with different hematological malignancies. In this study we aimed to evaluate and compare the drug resistance in B-cell acute lymphoid leukemia (B-ALL) and multiple myeloma (MM) in association with their immunophenotypes and genotypes. Eleven patients with B-ALL(More)
We report the case of a male patient with Ph-positive CML who developed AML 5 years after allogeneic BMT. Clinically, the AML seemed to develop on the basis of a myelodysplasia. The myeloid origin of blasts has been proven by immunophenotyping. The variable number of tandem repeats (VNTRs) and short tandem repeat (STR) showed donor-type haemopoiesis. The(More)
Hepatosplenic T-cell lymphoma is a rare, clinically aggressive lymphoma. Most cases represent a neoplasm of mature non-activated gammadelta T cells. Isochromosome 7q i(7)(q10) is thought to be the primary cytogenetic abnormality of this disease. In this paper, we describe a hepatosplenic gammadelta T-cell lymphoma case, with clonal ring chromosome 7(More)
Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) are professional type I interferon (IFN)-producing cells that play an essential role in antiviral immunity. In many cell types, detection of intracellular pathogens is mostly dependent on endosomal Toll-like receptors (TLRs) and cytosolic sensors, such as retinoic acid-inducible gene I (RIG-I). However, the possible(More)
Immunophenotyping improves both accuracy and reproducibility of the acute leukaemia classification and is considered particularly useful for identifying poorly differentiated subtypes of acute myeloid leukaemia and lineage association of acute lymphoid leukaemia. Immunological studies of leukaemic blasts has become critical also identifying biphenotypic(More)
