Tetanus toxin (TT)-specific T cell clones of donor origin were obtained from a patient with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) successfully reconstituted by transplantation of allogeneic fetal liver and thymus cells from two different donors performed 10 yr ago. A series of these clones recognized TT in the context of "allo" class II HLA determinants(More)
A retroviral element (multiple sclerosis-associated retrovirus, MSRV) defining a family of genetically inherited endogenous retroviruses (human endogenous retrovirus type W, HERV-W) has been characterized in cell cultures from patients with multiple sclerosis. Recently, MSRV retroviral particles or the envelope recombinant protein were shown to display(More)
HLA phenotypes were characterized for 79 patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma treated with interleukin 2 (IL-2). HLA-A32 was associated with a clinical response (P = 0.025). The frequency of HLA-A3 and/or A32 was higher among responders than non-responders (P = 0.008). Thus, these results suggest that, in vivo, IL-2 may enhance cellular-mediated(More)
Association between narcolepsy and HLA-DR2 antigen is the strongest so far described between an HLA antigen and a disease. Among 28 narcoleptic patients, we found two HLA-DR2 negative cases: a caucasoid woman also suffering from dystrophia myotonica and a negroid. All of our patients were HLA-DQW1 positive. An hypothetical narcolepsy susceptibility gene(More)
