PURPOSE Benchmark analysis of patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) alive for more than 10 years after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) including data on disease status, bone marrow reserve, long-term complications, and quality of life (QOL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Eighty-nine patients (46 in first chronic phase, 43 in advanced phase)(More)
Progress in understanding the abnormal regulation of hematopoiesis in chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) would be facilitated if neoplastic cells, at all stages of the disease, could be studied in an animal model. In this report, we show that irradiated severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice can be transplanted with both normal (Philadelphia chromosome(More)
The origin of the human basophil/mast cell lineage from a pluripotent hematopoietic stem cell has been surmised but never demonstrated. By examining individual hemopoietic colonies in methylcellulose under inverted microscopy and using histochemical stains in conjunction with single-colony histamine assays, we have previously identified basophil/mast cell(More)
We have recently shown that a proportion of previously designated human eosinophil "(Eo)-type" colonies in methylcellulose contain basophils and histamine (Denburg et al Blood 61:775, 1983). In the present studies, individual Eo-type colonies have been analyzed by cell morphology as well as by biochemical assays for histamine, Charcot-Leyden crystal protein(More)
Some multilineage hemopoietic colonies contain, in addition to myeloid cells, T lymphocytes. These proliferate extensively in liquid suspension culture under the influence of a T cell growth factor provided by phytohemagglutinin-T cell-conditioned medium (PHA-TCM). The clonal origin of these myeloid and lymphoid components was investigated by determining(More)
Summary:Pre transplant screening work-up of donors for allogeneic blood and marrow transplantation is essential in an effort to minimize risks to the recipient and protect the donor. At Princess Margaret Hospital, every potential donor is screened with a bone marrow aspirate. The case histories of three asymptomatic potential donors who presented within 1(More)
The addition of a T-cell growth-promoting medium (PHA-TCM) to culture conditions that support growth of multi-lineage hemopoietic colonies enhances the proliferation of cells with lymphoid morphology within these colonies. These cells were identified as T lymphocytes by their ability to form rosettes with SRBC and their reaction with monoclonal antibodies(More)
A culture system has been developed that promotes growth of clonogenic lymphoma cells of some patients with intermediate and high-grade malignant lymphoma. The formation of colonies in bone marrow, lymph nodes, and peripheral blood samples is best supported by human plasma. Colony formation of some patients was dependent upon growth factors, which in this(More)
Fourteen Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-negative cell lines were raised from bone marrow (BM), peripheral blood (PB), or lymph node samples of patients with intermediate- or high-grade malignant lymphoma. The cell lines were propagated in liquid suspension culture. They contain clonogenic progenitors capable of forming lymphoma colonies in semi-solid culture(More)
A reproducible method for growing normal human bone marrow B-lineage colonies in agar is described. The clonogenic cells require a rich medium, Opti-MEM (GIBCO/BRL, Burlington, Ontario, Canada), and a source of T-cell-derived factors for growth. The conditions described appear to be limiting for the colony progenitor, suggesting assay clonality. Three novel(More)
