In order to investigate the mechanism of interferon-alpha (IFNalpha) action in the treatment of chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML), we examined surface expressions of both type I interferon receptor 1 (IFNAR1) and 2 (IFNAR2) subunits on CD34-positive cells in bone marrow (BM) in a total of 57 CML patients. Initial cell-surface IFNAR2 expression at diagnosis(More)
CD34++ cells from 45 patients with myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and MDS-acute myeloid leukaemia (MDS-AML) were observed by flow cytometry for the expression of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor receptor (G-CSFR). Ten patients had a significantly reduced expression of G-CSFR. Late stages of disease showed a higher proportion of either high or low(More)
We studied surface expression of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor receptor (G-CSFR) on CD34++ progenitor cells of myelodysplastic patients. Late stages of disease showed a higher proportion of high or low G-CSFR expression than early stages. Most of the patients with the low expression had neutropenia. Neutropenia was relatively less present in the(More)
Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) is an interferon (IFN)-induced molecule with apoptotic activity. We examined gene mutations in the death domains of TRAIL receptor 1 (TRAIL-R1) and TRAIL receptor 2 (TRAIL-R2), and in the TRAIL gene promoter in 46 chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) patients. In 23 of the 46 patients, all the(More)
