Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-redirected cellular therapy is an attractive modality for cancer treatment. We hypothesized that allogeneic CAR-engineered CD45RA-negative T cells can control cancer and infection without the risk of graft-versus-host disease (GVHD). We used CD19(+) MLL-rearranged leukemia as prototype because it is an aggressive and(More)
T-cell depletion of an HLA-haploidentical graft is often used to prevent GVHD, but the procedure may lead to increased graft failure, relapse and infections due to delayed immune recovery. We hypothesized that selective depletion of the CD45RA+ subset can effectively reduce GVHD through removal of naive T cells, while providing improved donor immune(More)
OBJECTIVE The advent and utility of new endoscopic imaging modalities for predicting the histology of Barrett's esophagus (BE) in real time with high accuracy appear promising and could potentially obviate the need to perform random biopsies where guidelines are poorly adhered to. We embarked on evaluating the performance characteristics of white-light(More)
