Neutrophil Granulocyte–committed Cells Can Be Driven to Acquire Dendritic Cell Characteristics
Polymorphonuclear granulocytes (PMNs) are thought to fulfill their role in host defense primarily via phagocytosis and release of cytotoxic compounds and to be inefficient in antigen presentation andExpand

1,25-Dihydroxyvitamin D(3) inhibits dendritic cell differentiation and maturation in vitro.
OBJECTIVE Because of its potent immunosuppressive properties in vitro as well as in vivo, we studied the effect of 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D(3) (calcitriol) on differentiation, maturation, and functionExpand

Human leukaemic stem cells: a novel target of therapy
Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) is a life‐threatening haematopoietic disease that is characterized by clonal growth and the accumulation of myelopoietic progenitor cells. Although AML cells only have aExpand

Imatinib mesylate inhibits autonomous erythropoiesis in patients with polycythemia vera in vitro.
The overproduction of red blood cells in patients with polycythemia vera (PV) is reflected in vitro by the formation of erythroid burst-forming units (BFU-Es) in the absence of exogenousExpand

Comorbidity predicts survival in myelodysplastic syndromes or secondary acute myeloid leukaemia after allogeneic stem cell transplantation
Background  Recent data suggest that, among other factors, comorbidity may be an important prognostic variable in patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) who are eligible for haematopoieticExpand

Calcium ionophore: a single reagent for the differentiation of primary human acute myelogenous leukaemia cells towards dendritic cells
Blood monocytes and CD34+ haemopoietic progenitor cells, as well as certain leukaemic cell lines, acquire characteristics of mature dendritic cells (DC) after stimulation with calcium ionophore (CI).Expand

Interleukin-10 inhibits burst-forming unit-erythroid growth by suppression of endogenous granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor production from T cells.
Numerous cytokines released from accessory cells have been shown to exert either stimulatory or inhibitory growth signals on burst-forming unit-erythroid (BFU-E) growth. Because of its cytokineExpand

Rapid achievement of PML-RAR alpha polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-negativity by combined treatment with all-trans-retinoic acid and chemotherapy in acute promyelocytic leukemia: a pilot study.
The reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) for the fusion transcript of PML-RAR alpha can be used to detect minimal residual disease (MRD) in acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL). WeExpand

Interleukin-10 inhibits spontaneous colony-forming unit-granulocyte-macrophage growth from human peripheral blood mononuclear cells by suppression of endogenous granulocyte-macrophage
Spontaneous growth of myeloid colonies (colony-forming unit-granulocyte-macrophage [CFU-GM]) can be observed in methylcellulose cultures containing peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PB-MNCs) and isExpand
