PURPOSE Recent studies of Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) have suggested that the presence of regulatory T cells in the reactive background may explain the inhibition of the antitumoral host immune response observed in these patients. This study aimed to assess the relevance of regulatory T cells and CTLs present in the background of HL samples in the prognosis of(More)
PURPOSE Recent molecular data have suggested that non-neoplastic cells are powerful modulators that may confer a selective advantage or disadvantage on the outcome of follicular lymphoma (FL) patients. PATIENTS AND METHODS The prevalence of the principal inflammatory and immune-infiltrated cells was measured immunohistochemically in the tissue of 211 FL(More)
The present study aimed to describe the general tissular composition of the immune infiltrate observed in Hodgkin's lymphoma (HL) and its possible relationship with clinical and survival prognostic factors. In this retrospective study of 267 HL patients, the relative proportions of infiltrating T lymphocytes (CD4+, CD8+), natural killer cells (CD 56+, CD(More)
Plasma stromal cell-derived factor (SDF)-1 levels, SDF1-3'A polymorphism, and CXCR4(+) T lymphocytes in relation to resistance to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 infection and its progression were investigated in a study of HIV-positive patients, exposed but uninfected (EU) subjects, and healthy control subjects, all lacking CCR5 Delta 32 homozygosity.(More)
Certain Human Papillomaviruses (HPVs) are the infectious agents involved in cervical cancer development. Detection of HPVs DNA is part of the cervical cancer screening protocols and HPVs genotyping has been proposed for its inclusion in these preventive programs. The aim of this study was to evaluate three novel genotyping tests, namely Qiagen LQ, RH and(More)
In lymphoproliferative syndromes, tumoural-immune cell interactions depend on a number of factors related to tumoural and immune cells. Recent gene expression data tend to confirm the decisive role of the reactive microenvironment in the development and clinical behaviour of lymphoproliferative syndromes, and encourage particular interest in the role of T(More)
INTRODUCTION Lymph nodes are one of the main sites where an effective immune response develops. Normally, axillary nodes are the first place where breast cancer produces metastases. Several studies have demonstrated the importance of immune cells, especially dendritic cells, in the evolution of breast cancer. The goal of the project is to identify(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The presence of tumor-associated macrophages (TAM) is a prognostic factor for survival in follicular lymphoma (FL). Overexpression and/or activation of the signal transducer and activator of transcription 1 (STAT1) in these TAM have also been observed. The aim of this study was to determine the extent to which macrophages are(More)
Tissue microarray technology and immunohistochemical techniques have become a routine and indispensable tool for current anatomical pathology diagnosis. However, manual quantification by eye is relatively slow and subjective, and the use of digital image analysis software to extract information of immunostained specimens is an area of ongoing research,(More)
This study aimed to assess the differences in the cellular composition of the inflammatory reactive background around tumoral cells of classical Hodgkin’s lymphomas (cHL) inside and outside the HIV settings. This retrospective study evaluates the infiltrating T lymphocytes (CD4 and CD8), natural killer cells (CD57+ cells), and more especially cytotoxic(More)
