Infection with cagA-positive Helicobacter pylori is associated with gastric adenocarcinoma and gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma of B cell origin. The cagA-encoded CagA protein is delivered into gastric epithelial cells via the bacterial type IV secretion system and, upon tyrosine phosphorylation by Src family kinases, specifically(More)

To elucidate the mechanisms by which hematopoietic progenitor cells transmigrate via the bone marrow (BM) endothelial cells, we first established endothelial cell lines from BM and lung, and BM fibroblast cell lines; then we established an in vitro model of transendothelial migration of hematopoietic progenitor cells in the presence of chemoattractants(More)
Protein kinase C (PKC) was first described as a calcium-activated, phospholipid-dependent serine/threonine protein kinase 22 years ago, and it has since been studied extensively as a second messenger transducing diverse signals regarding cell proliferation, activation of cellular function, differentiation, and even apoptosis. Because PKC consists of at(More)
Treatment guidelines for patients with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) have been changed recently due to the clinical application of Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) eradication but there has been no detailed multi-center analysis of the hematological effects of H. pylori eradication. The Clinical Hematology Forum consists of 11 large hematological(More)
BACKGROUND Carcinosarcomas are comprised of carcinomatous and sarcomatous elements, and their histogenesis remains unclear. The authors examined the serum concentrations of hematopoietic growth factors and performed immunohistochemical studies on an esophageal carcinosarcoma from a patient with marked granulocytosis to determine its histopathogenesis and(More)
RBM5 (RNA-binding motif protein 5) is a nuclear RNA binding protein containing 2 RNA recognition motifs. The RBM5 gene is located at the tumor suppressor locus 3p21.3. Deletion of this locus is the most frequent genetic alteration in lung cancer, but is also found in other human cancers. RBM5 is known to induce apoptosis and cell cycle arrest but the(More)
A cytogenetically normal man with severe aplastic anemia was treated with granulocyte colonystimulating factor (G-CSF), erythropoietin (EPO), cyclosporin A, anti-thymocyte globulin, and interleukin-6 (IL-6), which resulted in a gradual improvement in his neutrophil count and hemoglobin level. After 2 years of the therapy, monosomy 7 was detected during(More)
We report a rare case of chronic eosinophilic leukemia (CEL) with a chromosomal abnormality of t(6;11)(q27;q23). The patient was diagnosed as having thyroid cancer with metastases to the lung and cervical lymph nodes in 1993. Percutaneous ethanol injection therapy (PEIT), total thyroidectomy, and radiotherapy were performed . The patient was also diagnosed(More)
We have examined the effects of a stromal cell-derived cytokine designated interleukin 11 (IL-11) on the proliferation of murine hemopoietic progenitors in methylcellulose culture. COS cell-conditioned medium containing IL-11 supported formation of granulocyte/macrophage colonies and a small number of multilineage colonies including blast cell colonies in(More)
