The chemokine receptor CXCR4 favors the interaction of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cells with their niche but the extent to which it participates in pathogenesis is unclear. Here, we show that CXCR4 expression at the surface of leukemic cells allowed distinguishing CXCR4 (high) from CXCR4(neg/low) AML patients. When high levels of CXCR4 are expressed at(More)
Previously, we reported the identification of a novel immunoglobulin-like cell adhesion molecule hepaCAM that is frequently downregulated and inhibits cell growth in hepatocellular carcinoma. In this study, we show that the expression of hepaCAM is suppressed in diverse human cancers. Aiming to evaluate the biological role of hepaCAM in breast cancer, we(More)
For acute, chronic, or hereditary diseases of the liver, cell transplantation therapies can stimulate liver regeneration or serve as a bridge until liver transplantation can be performed. Recently, fetal hepatocytes, stem cells, liver progenitor cells, or other primitive and proliferative cell types have been employed for cell transplantation therapies, in(More)
