T-cell immunoglobulin and mucin domain-containing molecule-3 (Tim-3) and programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) are T-cell exhaustion molecules. We investigated the expression of Tim-3 and PD-1 in HTLV-I infection. Tim-3 expression, but not PD-1 expression, was reduced on CD4+ and CD8+ T cells of HAM/TSP patients and HTLV-I carriers as compared to healthy controls.(More)
Objectives Epidemiological studies show that human T-lympho-tropic virus type 1 (HTLV-1) is closely associated with polymyositis (PM). However, the pathogenic roles of HTLV-1 in PM remain unknown. This study aims to assess skeletal muscle morphology in the presence of HTLV-1 infection to compare the histopathological findings of HTLV-1-positive and(More)
INTRODUCTION The role of adjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer is well established, as are its indications. Likewise, the role of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in locally advanced breast cancer is well established. The use of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in operable breast cancer has only recently become of interest to researchers. PATIENTS AND METHODS This study(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Relapsed, histologically aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) has a poor prognosis; relapsed patients who do not respond to second line therapy or are unfit for BMT have a worse prognosis. Angiogenesis is increased in aggressive NHL and could be targeted by selective cyclooxygenase-2 inhibition and metronomic chemotherapy. We(More)
