Dysregulated CD4(+) T cell responses and alterations in T regulatory cells (T(reg) cells) play a critical role in autoimmune diseases, including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The current study demonstrates that removal of Bcl11b at the double-positive stage of T cell development or only in T(reg) cells causes IBD because of proinflammatory(More)
To evaluate the prevalence of lymphocytic infiltrate in a large series of pituitary adenomas, we retrospectively studied tumor tissues from 1400 patients. Based on immunocytochemical data, tumors were classified as PRL (n=411), multihormonal (n=310), immunonegative (n=275), ACTH (n=166), GH (n=137), alpha subunit (n=44), FSH and/or LH, (n=42), and TSH(More)
The authors report a case of myeloid metaplasia of the breast presenting as a tumor mass with homolateral axillary lymphadenopathy. The lesion was clinically misinterpreted as a breast cancer and developed in an elderly woman 8 years after the diagnosis of primary myelofibrosis was made. Immunohistochemical and ultrastructural studies confirmed the(More)
CONTEXT Maternally inherited diabetes and deafness (MIDD) is a rare form of diabetes with a matrilineal transmission, sensorineural hearing loss, and macular pattern dystrophy due to an A to G transition at position 3243 of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) (m.3243A>G). The phenotypic heterogeneity of MIDD may be the consequence of different levels of mutated mtDNA(More)
OBJECTIVE In patients with maternally inherited diabetes and deafness (MIDD), due to 3 243 A > G mutation of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), diabetes may present with variable phenotypes. OBJECTIVE To ascertain the existence of two distinct phenotypes, MIDD1 and MIDD2, in a series of patients with MIDD. DESIGN Multicenter prospective study. PATIENTS 77(More)
OBJECTIVE We report clinical, biochemical, morphological and histological data of phaeochromocytoma in 40 French families and in apparently sporadic cases of multiple endocrine neoplasia (MEN) type 2 A (medullary thyroid carcinoma, phaeochromocytoma, with or without hyperparathyroidism). DESIGN This retrospective study was obtained from cases registered(More)
We have previously shown that immunoassayable concentration of somatostatin (SRIH) was elevated in 70% of 34 consecutive medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) tissue samples. In the present study gastrin releasing peptide (GRP)-like immunoreactivity was measured in tissue extracts from these 34 MTC (25 inherited, 7 sporadic, 2 unclassified) and in 7 normal(More)
Unidimensional Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumor (RECIST) has been recently proposed in the attempt to simplify the standardized bidimensional World Health Organization (WHO) criteria. The complete accord between these two measurement systems was established in a large comparative study [J. Natl. Cancer Inst. 92(3) (2000) 205] that demonstrated(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of human lymphoblastoid interferon-α treatment in chronic sporadic-type non-A, non-B hepatitis. We also aimed to determine if histological or liver function data could predict either response or relapse. Sixty patients with chronic sporadic-type non-A, non-B hepatitis were randomized in two groups of 30.(More)
