Although FLT3 mutations are essentially found in myeloid-lineage leukemia cells, a high level of FLT3 expression was recently observed in MLL gene-rearranged acute lymphoblastic leukemia without FLT3 mutations. Here, we analyzed the biologic and clinical significance of the FLT3 transcript level in comparison with several gene alterations in 181 de novo(More)
Rituximab is a chimeric monoclonal antibody to the surface antigen CD20 and has provided better outcomes against CD20+ B-cell lymphomas than chemotherapy with conventional antitumor drugs alone. Treatment with rituximab poses a considerable problem, however, because of CD20- tumor transformation and subsequent disease progression. We have established a(More)
Arsenic trioxide (ATO) has been used to treat acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), but the oxidative DNA damage occurring in patients has not been fully elucidated. We measured 8-hydroxy-2'-deoxyguanosine (8-OHdG), one of the most abundant oxidative products of DNA, by enzyme-linked immunoassay, and reactive oxidative species (ROS), by luminol- and(More)
A novel cell line, SACHI, was established from a pericardial effusion developed during the course of primary plasma cell leukemia (PCL). The cell line SACHI cells were the same as the infiltrating plasma cells with regard to surface markers (CD38(+)CD19(-)PCA-1(+)VLA-5(-)CD56(-)TdT(+)) and immunoglobulin gene rearrangements. Analysis of SACHI cells showed a(More)
We established a leukemia cell line derived from therapy-related acute myeloid leukemia with the t(11;19) by xenotransplantation into the NOD/SCID mouse with IL-2Rgamma(c)-/- (NOG mouse). The cell line, TRL-01, could be serially transplanted from mouse to mouse and also grown in an adherence-dependent manner on a murine bone marrow stroma cell line, HESS-5.(More)
We have established a stroma-dependent myelomonocytic cell line, NAMO-2, with FLT3 internal tandem duplication (FLT3/ITD). Leukemia cells from a patient with acute myelomonocytic leukemia were administered to form subcutaneous tumors in nude mice, which were maintained successively, although we failed to establish continuously growing cells from the(More)
