Autoimmune hemolytic anemia and thrombocytopenia (AIHA/AITP) frequently complicate the course of non-Hodgkin lymphomas, especially low-grade, but they are very rarely observed in Hodgkin lymphoma (HL). Consequently the frequency and the profile of patients with HL-associated AIHA/AITP have not been well defined. Among 1029 patients with HL diagnosed between(More)
We report the characterization of a new gene (E4.5) that maps at chromosome band 13q14.3, a chromosomal area frequently deleted in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and in other lymphoid malignancies. E4.5 gene encodes for a 4 kb mRNA expressed in various tissues and has an open reading frame of 531 amino acids. The predicted E4.5 protein shows strong(More)
Anti-B-cell therapy may be beneficial for patients with SLE and active proliferative glomerulonephritis. Using genomic DNA, we examined how rituximab-induced transient B-cell depletion affected the composition of immunoglobulin heavy-chain (Ig-VH/DH/JH) repertoire at the time-point of 33-35% B-cell reconstitution in these patients. Clusters of(More)
