We investigated the oncogenic role of SETDB1, focusing on non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), which has high expression of this protein. A total of 387 lung cancer cases were examined by immunohistochemistry; 72% of NSCLC samples were positive for SETDB1 staining, compared to 46% samples of normal bronchial epithelium (106 cases) (p <0.0001). The percentage(More)
LNK (SH2B3) is an adaptor protein studied extensively in normal and malignant hematopoietic cells. In these cells, it downregulates activated tyrosine kinases at the cell surface resulting in an antiproliferative effect. To date, no studies have examined activities of LNK in solid tumors. In this study, we found by in silico analysis and staining tissue(More)
A 56-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with leukocytosis, anemia, and thrombocytopenia. Acute monoblastic leukemia was diagnosed. Two subsequent courses of consolidation chemotherapy consisted of conventional doses of cytarabine and intermediate-dose cytarabine. Intermediate-dose cytarabine was infused intravenously every 12 hr for 6 days. On day 15(More)
A 66-year-old woman presented with anemia in January 2006. She was admitted to our Department in February, after laboratory data showed pancytopenia and bone marrow biopsy reticulin fibrosis. The results of the diagnostic work-up, which included the anti-SS-A antibody, anti-SS-B antibody positivity and salivary gland scintigraphy, Schirmer test and Rose(More)
A 44-year-old male patient was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (CD10+, CD19+, CD20 weak) and underwent unrelated bone marrow transplantation (uBMT) with a conditioning regimen of cyclophosphamide plus total body irradiation during first complete remission (CR). Twenty months post-uBMT, the serum creatinine level (Cre) increased gradually, up to(More)
Patients with Ph chromosome negative myeloproliferative disease (Ph-MPD) have an increased risk of vascular complications. It remains controversial whether patients with the JAK2 V617F mutation (V617F) exhibit increased risk, while recent growing evidence has shown a critical role for V617F in clonal erythropoiesis in Ph-MPD. We studied 53 patients with(More)
To study hematopoietic reconstitution in umbilical cord blood transplantation (CBT), bone marrow (BM) histology was investigated in 35 biopsies after bone marrow transplantation (BMT) and in 40 biopsies after CBT. BM biopsies were obtained at different times after transplantation and were evaluated for cellularity, number of megakaryocytes and CD34-positive(More)
In the present retrospective single-center study, we examined the efficacy and safety of eltrombopag, a thrombopoietin (TPO) -receptor agonist (TPO-RA), and found clinical factors associated with its efficacy in Japanese patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). According to the definition of a response, which is to attain a platelet count of(More)
