The expression of coxsackievirus and adenovirus receptor (CAR) was dominant in the brains and hearts of mice until the newborn phase. There is no detailed information concerning the relation between the expression of CAR and development of hearts. It is also uncertain whether CAR is able to be induced in adult hearts after cardiac injury. We demonstrated(More)
In an attempt to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying neuro-network formation in the developing brain, we analyzed 130 proteolytic cleavage peptides of membrane proteins purified from newborn mouse brains. We describe here the characterization of a membrane protein with an apparent molecular mass of 46 kDa, a member of the immunoglobulin(More)
We report here the case of a 32-year-old woman who suffered from a unique angiopathy in the central nervous system (CNS). She died of multiple infarcts in the brain stem and cerebellum during treatment with cyclosporine A after bone marrow transplantation for refractory anemia with excess of blasts. The autopsy findings showed segmental narrowing of the(More)
BACKGROUND Many diseases associated with bone marrow transplantation (BMT) are caused by transplanted hematopoietic cells, and the onset of these diseases occurs after homing of donor cells in the initial phase after BMT. Noninvasive observation of donor cell homing shortly after transplantation is potentially valuable for improving therapeutic outcomes of(More)
Although tyrosine kinase inhibitors is effective for dramatically reducing CML cells, it might be difficult to eradicate completely the CML stem cells. We aimed to clarify the safety and effects of WT1 peptide vaccination in combination with imatinib therapy for a CML patient. A 51 year-old male with CML in CP, who showed a resistance against imatinib(More)
A 46-year-old woman with Graves' disease was admitted for anemia and thrombocytopenia. She had previously been treated with methimazole but she self-discontinued the treatment 6 months prior to admission. She was diagnosed with Evans syndrome associated with Graves' disease and treated with propylthiouracil without corticosteroids, which normalized her(More)
UNLABELLED Prognosis for adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) has been reported to be approximately 35% to 50%, even after allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT). We previously reported retrospective analyses of a conditioning regimen of medium-dose etoposide, cyclophosphamide (CY), and total body irradiation (TBI) before allo-SCT(More)
We describe a 60-year-old Japanese patient with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) who developed myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) with Ph negative monosomy 7 chromosome following transient bone marrow dysplasia during imatinib treatment. Most cases that developed chromosomal abnormality in Ph negative cells during imatinib therapy were reported to have less(More)
We herein report the case of a 22-year-old woman with severe aplastic anemia who underwent allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). After HSCT, the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-DNA load in the peripheral blood gradually increased, and the patient presented with a fever and lymphadenopathy on day 56 post-HSCT. Although we administered(More)
