A new procedure for enrichment of marrow precursors and removal of T lymphocytes from large volumes of human bone marrow, involving initial differential agglutination of T lymphocytes and mature marrow elements with soybean agglutinin, followed by rosetting with sheep red blood cells, was used to fractionate marrow cells from an HLA-A, B, DR non-identical,(More)
We examined the in vivo effects of recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rhG-CSF) in primates (cynomolgus monkeys) treated with subcutaneous doses of rhG-CSF for 14-28 d. A dose-dependent increase in the peripheral white blood cells (WBC) was seen, reaching a plateau after 1 wk of rhG-CSF treatment. The elevation of WBC was due to an(More)
C.B-17 scid/scid (severe combined immunodeficiency [SCID]) mice inoculated with peripheral blood lymphocytes from Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-seropositive donors, or with EBV-transformed lymphoblastoid B cell lines (EBV-LCL), develop lethal human EBV+ B cell lymphoproliferative disorders (EBV-LPD) with characteristics similar to those arising in(More)
We have characterized a child with a severe combined immunodeficiency disease syndrome with increased numbers, but a normal distribution, of CD3+ T cells. This patient's immunological defect appears to be attributable to a selective deficiency in T cell production of IL-2, which may reflect a subtle abnormality in the IL-2 gene locus or a defect in a(More)
Natural killer activity against herpes simplex virus type 1 infected fibroblasts NK(HSV-1) was studied prospectively in patients undergoing allogenic bone-marrow or fetal-tissue stem-cell transplantation. Thirteen patients showed evidence of engraftment and survived long enough to develop graft-versus-host disease (GvHD). Of this group, all of the seven(More)
A procedure was developed for the isolation from human bone marrow of a cell fraction enriched for haematopoietic precursors and depleted of T lymphocytes. T cells are eliminated from bone marrow by rosetting with sheep red blood cells, followed by differential agglutination of residual T lymphocytes in the non-rosetting population by the lectin, soybean(More)
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is curative for hematological manifestations of Fanconi anemia (FA). We performed a retrospective analysis of 22 patients with FA and aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome or acute myelogenous leukemia who underwent a HSCT at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and survived at least 1 year post HSCT.(More)
We have described a severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) mouse model that permits the subcutaneous growth of primary human acute leukemia blast cells into a measurable subcutaneous nodule which may be followed by the development of disseminated disease. Utilizing the SCID mouse model, we examined the growth potential of leukemic blasts from 133 patients(More)
