OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prevalence and distribution of C-kit, NPM1 and FLT3 gene mutations in patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML), and to analyze the relationship between the gene mutations and their prognosis. METHODS Mutations in exon 8 and 17 of C-kit gene, exon 12 of NPM1 gene, exon 20 of FLT3-TKD gene, and exon 14/15 of FLT3-ITD gene were(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the allele frequencies and polymorphism of human leukocyte antigens (HLA) -A, B, Cw, DRB1 and DQB1 between donors-recipients on high-resolution typing; and to analyze the matching and mismatching proportion between donors and recipients. METHODS HLA high-resolution types were determined by sequence based typing (SBT), sequence(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the biological characteristics of osteoblasts from patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and their supportive capacity for hematopoiesis in vitro. A two-dimensional culture system was constructed by using osteoblasts derived from human marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSC); MSCs were isolated from bone marrow of MDS(More)
OBJECTIVE To predict T-cell immune reconstitution by investigating T cell receptor excision circles (TREC) and T-cell receptor beta-chain variable region (TCRBV) clonal repertoire in leukemia patients after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). METHODS Real-time quantitative PCR was used to detect the TREC in 43 leukemia patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the distribution and differentiation of ABL kinase domain mutation in the Chinese Han nationality imatinib resistant chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and Philadelphia chromosome-positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia (Ph(+)ALL). METHODS Bone marrow or peripheral blood samples of 112 imatinib resistant CML patients and 21 Ph(+)ALL(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship among CD4+ CD25+ regulatory T cell, the expression of FOXP(3) mRNA levels of donor bone marrow (BM) and graft versus host disease (GVHD) in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT). METHODS (1) Thirty patients undergoing allo-HSCT were enrolled in this study. The levels of donor CD4+CD25+(More)
This study was aimed to investigate the biological characteristics of osteoblasts and their hematopoietic supportive function by using human fetal osteoblastic cell line 1.19 (hFOBs) as a model. The pluripotency markers (Oct-4, Rex-1, hTERT) of hFOBs were analyzed by RT-PCR, the multilineage differentiation experiments were conducted in vitro. Flow(More)
BACKGROUND Interactions of tumor cells with the microenvironment were deemed to promote the tumor invasion and metastasis. CXC chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4) and extracellular matrix metalloproteinase inducer (EMMPRIN) had reported to participate in this process. However the roles of bone marrow microenvironment in leukemic infiltration were not well(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between CMV reactivation and KIR haplotype or HLA-Cw genotype in patients after unrelated-donor hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). METHODS From January 2003 to December 2008 the HLA-Cw/KIR genotype of 48 patient-donor pairs were determined by polymerase chain reaction with sequence specific primers(More)
OBJECTIVE To study the biological function of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR) and the role of donor inhibitory KIR and recipient genetic background in HLA matched unrelated hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). METHODS HLA genotype of 51 patients (ALL 18 cases, CML 15 cases, AML 10 cases and others 8 cases) and their respective(More)
