Primary mediastinal (thymic) B-cell lymphoma is a high-grade non-Hodgkin's lymphoma with unique features. By using comparative genomic hybridization and interphase cytogenetics, 26 tumors were analyzed to identify genomic imbalances. Gains of chromosomal material were much more frequent than losses (110 v 10) and involved chromosomes 9p, 12q, and Xq (31% to(More)
Rac proteins of the Rho-like GTPase family, including the ubiquitous Rac1, the hematopoiesis-specific Rac2, and the least-characterized Rac3 play a major role in oncogenic transformation, tumor invasion and metastasis. However, the prognostic relevance of Rac expression in human tumors has not been investigated yet. In the present study, Rac protein(More)
We generated mice expressing a full-length Mpl transgene under the control of a 2-kb Mpl promoter in an Mpl(-/-) background, effectively obtaining mice that express full-length Mpl in the absence of other Mpl isoforms. These mice developed thrombocytosis with platelet levels approximately 5-fold higher than wild-type controls and markedly increased(More)
We investigated whether the pattern of T-cell receptors expressed by T cells in inflamed psoriatic skin differed substantially from the pattern seen in T cells from the peripheral blood. A bias or restriction in the repertoire of T-cell receptors found in the lesional skin of different patients might imply that specific subsets of T cells were causally(More)
Thrombopoietin receptor c-mpl is expressed on hematopoietic progenitors and cells of the megakaryocytic lineage. The c-mpl promoter may, therefore, be useful for directing the expression of transgenes. We tested whether a 2-kb genomic DNA fragment comprising the putative c-mpl regulatory elements and most of the 5'-untranslated region of mouse c-mpl is able(More)
□ Zur Evaluation der Wirksamkeit eines neuen Arzneimittels oder einer therapeutischen Maßnahme werden heute meist nicht nur eine, sondern mehrere klinische Studien durchgeführt, deren Ergebnisse dann integriert betrachtet werden sollen. Eine zusammenfassende Bewertung der Studien ist auch hilfreich, wenn man den aktuellen Wissensstand ermitteln möchte. Dies(More)
