Evi-1 has been recognized as one of the dominant oncogenes associated with murine and human myeloid leukemia. Here, we show that hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) in Evi-1-deficient embryos are severely reduced in number with defective proliferative and repopulating capacity. Selective ablation of Evi-1 in Tie2(+) cells mimics Evi-1 deficiency, suggesting(More)
The Notch1-RBP-Jkappa and the transcription factor Runx1 pathways have been independently shown to be indispensable for the establishment of definitive hematopoiesis. Importantly, expression of Runx1 is down-regulated in the para-aortic splanchnopleural (P-Sp) region of Notch1- and Rbpsuh-null mice. Here we demonstrate that Notch1 up-regulates Runx1(More)
OBJECTIVE To elucidate the time course of tumor metabolism during the first 3 months after (90)Y-ibritumomab tiuxetan radioimmunotherapy (RIT) in patients with refractory malignant lymphoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seven patients with recurrent follicular lymphoma underwent FDG-PET imaging before and after 1-, 4-, and 12-week RIT with (90)Y-ibritumomab(More)
Rituximab, a monoclonal antibody directed against CD20, became widely used for the treatment of immunoglobulin M (IgM)-related neuropathy. However, response rate by rituximab monotherapy is no more than 30%. Previous studies revealed that fludarabine acts synergistically with rituximab in vitro and that fludarabine also ameliorates IgM-related neuropathy in(More)
