No standard therapeutic approaches have so far been established for the treatment of relapsed angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL), a subtype of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. This case report describes an AITL patient who relapsed with hemophagocytic syndrome (HPS) two months after receiving high-dose chemotherapy (HDCT) supported by autologous peripheral(More)
PP2A activator FTY720 has been shown to possess the anti-leukemic activity for chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), however, the cell killing mechanism underlying its anti-leukemic activity has remained to be verified. We investigated the precise mechanisms underlying the apoptosis induction by FTY720, especially focusing on the roles of BH3-only proteins,(More)
The pathogenetic roles of 8q24 amplified segments in leukemic cells with double minute chromosomes remain to be verified. Through comprehensive molecular analyses of 8q24 amplicons in leukemic cells from an acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) patient and AML-derived cell line HL60 cells, we identified two novel fusion genes between NSMCE2 and long noncoding(More)
Multiple myeloma is a cytogenetically/molecularly heterogeneous hematologic malignancy that remains mostly incurable, and the identification of a universal and relevant therapeutic target molecule is essential for the further development of therapeutic strategy. Herein, we identified that 3-phosphoinositide-dependent protein kinase 1 (PDPK1), a serine(More)
Multiple myeloma is an entity of cytogenetically and genetically heterogenous plasma cell neoplasms. Despite recent improvement in the treatment outcome of multiple myeloma by novel molecular-targeted chemotherapeutics, multiple myeloma remains incurable. The identification of a therapeutic target molecule in which various signaling for cell-survival(More)
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) is a life-threatening complication, and its control is essential for therapeutic success. Recombinant human soluble thrombomodulin alfa (rTM) is a novel therapeutic agent for DIC. The efficacy of rTM in the treatment of DIC is reportedly superior to that of conventional anti-DIC treatments, such as unfractionated(More)
The deleted in colorectal carcinoma (DCC) gene at 18q21 encodes a netrin-1 receptor, a tumor suppressor that prevents cell growth. While allele loss or decreased expression of DCC has been associated with the progression of solid tumors and hematologic malignancies, including leukemias and malignant lymphomas, its involvement has not been evaluated in(More)
We herein report a rare case of Burkitt lymphoma (BL) preceded by autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA) caused by autoantibodies against D antigen. After a partial response to AIHA with prednisolone (PSL) treatment for 7 months, the patient developed BL with a t(8;22)(q24;q11.2) chromosomal translocation. Intensive immunochemotherapy, including rituximab, led(More)
Primary cutaneous gamma-delta T-cell lymphoma (PCGD-TCL), which originates from activated mature gamma-delta T cells with a cytotoxic phenotype is a rare T-cell lymphoproliferative disease. The prognosis of PCGD-TCL has been rather unfavorable due to poor response to conventional chemotherapy, and its molecular features and pathophysiology underlying(More)
Multiple myeloma is an entity of cytogenetically and genetically heterogenous plasma cell neoplasms. Despite recent improvement in the treatment outcome of multiple myeloma by novel molecular-targeted chemotherapeutics,multiplemyeloma remains incurable. The identification of a therapeutic targetmolecule in which various signaling for cell-survival converge(More)
