Inactivation of the retinoblastoma tumor-suppressor gene (RB-1) has been associated with tumorigenicity in various human malignancies. In chronic lymphoid leukemias of B-cell origin (B-CLL) an involvement of RB-1 has been suggested based on cytogenetic data. We examined RB-1 and its chromosomal locus 13q14 in 35 cases of B-CLL by dual-color in situ(More)
Telomerase activity was detected in normal endometrium in association with proliferation and regulated during the menstrual cycle in a hormone-dependent manner. The activity was maximal at the late-proliferative phase to mid-secreting phase, and was absent or extremely low at early-proliferative phase and late-secreting phase. Activity was also detected in(More)
Trisomy 12 has been shown to be one of the most common chromosome abnormalities in chronic lymphoid leukemias of B-cell origin, and some studies suggested that it predicts poor overall survival. We have prospectively studied 42 patients with B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (B-CLL) and three patients with B-prolymphocytic leukemia (B-PLL) for the(More)
INTRODUCTION With an incidence of 1:2,000-1:3,000 in Europe, mole pregnancy is rare. Partial mole is a benign form of gestational trophoblastic disease in which triploidy is thought to be caused by the insemination of an ovum by 2 sperms. A vital embryo is often dystrophic and growth retarded. The disease can present with vaginal bleeding, secondary(More)
PROBLEM During pregnancy, it is crucially important that the mother's immune system tolerates the developing embryo. Although a number of mechanisms of immunological tolerance have been described, little is known about intracellular signaling events, causing a decrease in the mother's leukocyte activity. METHOD OF STUDY We investigated the expression and(More)
