By immunoprecipitation analysis, enhanced p53 expression was detected in 3 of 4 adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) cell lines, 1 of 3 HTLV-I-infected cell lines and 1 of 5 fresh ATL samples, compared with phytohemagglutinin-stimulated peripheral blood lymphocytes. Among these 5 high expressers, p53 missense mutations were indicated in 2 ATL cell lines and 1 fresh(More)
A 70-year-old woman with Waldenstroem's macroglobulinemia developed bilateral pleural effusions due to Cryptococcus neoformans. She was found to be a carrier of HTLV-I. It is speculated that the opportunistic infection occurred as the result of an impaired cellular immunity secondary to HTLV-I infection.
A megakaryoblastic cell line (MKPL-1) was newly established from the bone marrow of an adult patient with acute megakaryoblastic leukemia. This cell line grew in single cell suspension with a doubling time of 30 h and consisted of large primitive blasts with persistent development of giant cells carrying multilobed nuclei. MKPL-1 cells were positive for(More)
A 54-year old man with a primary lung lymphoma of mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) origin whose tumor cells had a t(11;12;18)(q13;q13;q12) chromosome abnormality is described. The morphologic, immunologic, and molecular biologic investigations showed that the patient's lung tumor consisted of small lymphoid cells that expressed monoclonal IgM,(More)
Experiments were undertaken to investigate a genetic event involved in leukemogenesis in adult T-cell leukemia (ATL). For this purpose, the p53 gene was chosen for study, since alteration of the gene has been found in a wide variety of human cancers. Structures and expression of the p53 gene in ATL cells were investigated by Southern and Northern blot(More)
Intensive induction chemotherapy was applied to 25 patients with acute myelogenous leukemia by continuing drugs (daunorubicin, behenoyl-cytosine arabinoside, 6-mercaptopurine and prednisolone) until the achievement of severe bone marrow aplasia (leukemic cells less than 1,000/microliters). Complete remission (CR) was achieved in 18 (72%). Numbers of partial(More)
