Central nervous system (CNS) involvement remains an important cause of morbidity and mortality in acute leukemia, the mechanisms of leukemic cell infiltration into the CNS have not yet been elucidated. The blood-brain barrier (BBB) makes CNS become a refugee to leukemic cells and serves as a resource of cells that seed extraneural sites. How can the(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the demethylation effect of arsenic trioxide (As2O3) on the secreted frizzled-related protein 1 (SFRP1) gene and its ability to inhibit the Wingless-type MMTV integration site family (WNT) pathway in Jurkat cells. Methylation-specific polymerase chain reaction was used to examine the CpG island methylation(More)
We designed to determine whether pretreatment of allografts with methoxypolyethylene glycol-succinimidyl-propionic acid ester (mPEG-SPA) and an anti-OX40L monoclonal antibody (McAb) can relieve acute graft-versus-host disease in allogeneic bone marrow transplantation recipients. Responder splenocytes from C57BL/6 donor mice were incubated with stimulator(More)
The effect of infusion of lentiviral vector‑mediated, genetically engineered dendritic cells (DCs) following allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (allo‑BMT) on graft‑versus‑host disease (GVHD) and graft‑versus‑leukemia (GVL) was investigated in a mouse model. Lentivirus‑mediated expression of soluble tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (sTNFR1) converted(More)
