The immunoreactivity of a CD1a monoclonal antibody (MAb), denoted 010, was investigated by means of the streptavidin-biotin-peroxidase method in formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissues from 47 cases. The samples comprised reactive lymphoid proliferations of skin, tonsil, and lymph node including dermatopathic lymphadenopathy and Langerhans' cell(More)
We identified eight cases of T-cell lymphoma with evidence of a gamma delta phenotype over a 13-year period. Seven of these cases conformed to a distinct clinicopathologic entity of hepatosplenic gamma delta T-cell lymphoma. Nearly all of these patients were young adult males (five of seven), with a median age at presentation of 20 years. They presented(More)
Nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma is a unique form of lymphoma highly associated with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). These lymphomas are rare in Western populations and much more prevalent in some Asian and Latin American countries. Although there are several sizable studies from Asian countries, the same is not true from South America. The aim of this study was to(More)
The paired box containing gene PAX-5 encodes the transcription factor BSAP (B-cell-specific activator protein), which plays a key role in B-lymphocyte development. Despite its known involvement in a rare subtype of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), a detailed examination of BSAP expression in NHL has not been previously reported. In this study, we analyzed(More)
Structural alterations in the meshwork of follicular dendritic cells (FDCs) are frequently found in malignant lymphomas. Formaldehyde fixation and paraffin embedding, however, have long prevented consistent detection of FDCs. Wet heat-induced epitope retrieval in Dako Target Retrieval Solution (TRS) (pH 6.0) enabled the reliable detection of FDCs through(More)
Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is an aggressive neoplastic disease of the lymphatic system, the activated B-cell type of this disease is likely to have a substantially worse prognosis. In this study, we report the favorable outcome of the activated B-cell type of DLBCL, though untreated, 7 years after diagnosis. In 2003, DLBCL localized to the root(More)
Anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) is composed of large, frequently bizarre, cells of T- or null-cell phenotype that show a preferential sinusoidal growth pattern and consistent CD30 positivity. Whether these tumors represent a single entity or several, and what the exact cell origin, is controversial. Recently, granzyme B, a cytotoxic granule component,(More)
Activation of vitamin D receptor (VDR) by 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) (1,25-vitD) reprograms dendritic cells (DC) to become tolerogenic. Previous studies suggested that 1,25-vitD could inhibit the changes brought about by differentiation and maturation of DCs. Underpinning the described phenotypic and functional alterations, there must be(More)
Galectin-1 (Gal-1) has been implicated in tumor progression partly via the induction of T-cell apoptosis. However the mechanism of Gal-1 induced T-cell death was mostly studied using recombinant, soluble Gal-1 producing controversial results. To explore the true mechanism of Gal-1 and hence tumor cell-induced T-cell death, we applied co-cultures of tumor(More)
