We have investigated the molecular mechanisms underlying the ability of peripheral blood monocytes to block apoptosis induction in endothelial cells. Monocytes stimulated the expression of the bcl-2 homologue A1 in serum-starved endothelial cells after 6 h of coincubation, with elevated A1 levels persisting for up to 21 h. IL-1 and TNF also stimulated A1(More)
The use of interferon-a (INF) in chronic myeloid leukemia, when it started in the 80s, was considered as a breakthrough in the therapy of this disease; INF administered alone or in combination with aracytin was the standard choice for treatment for Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) patients unfit for bone marrow transplantation. With the appearance of the(More)
Extramedullary sudden blast crisis in chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia during first-line treatment with nilotinib The natural course of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) has changed dramatically since the introduction of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) with 490% of the patients achieving long-term disease control. Development of resistance with(More)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) synovial fibroblasts hyperexpress the mesenchymal cadherin-11, which is involved also in tumor invasion/metastasis, whereas anti-cadherin-11 therapeutics prevent and reduce experimental arthritis. To test the hypothesis that cadherin-11 is aberrantly expressed in RA peripheral blood, 100 patients (15 studied serially) and 70(More)
