PURPOSE Regulatory T cells (T-reg) that control harmful autoimmune T cells in the periphery may also suppress the immune response against cancer. In this study we investigated the possible involvement of CD4(+)CD25(high) T-reg in the immune impairment of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN The frequencies and phenotypes of(More)
Bone marrow derived-mesenchymal stromal cells (BM-MSCs) are multipotent, nonhematopoietic progenitors in a hematopoietic microenvironment and indispensable for regulating hematopoiesis. Several studies have reported that toll-like receptors (TLRs) are expressed in mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) to modulate their biological functions. In this study, we(More)
New WHO classification has been widely applied in the diagnosis of leukemia. To elucidate the immunophenotype of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and characterize the correlation among morphological, immunological, cytogenetic, and clinical features, we studied the bone marrow immunophenotypes of 180 AML patients in China by flow cytometry. The results showed(More)
Interacting with T cells, cytokine-producing B cells play a critical protective role in autoimmune diseases. However, the interaction between malignant B and T cells remains to be fully elucidated. In a previous study, we have reported that ligation of CCL19-CCR7 and CXCL13-CXCR5 activates paternally expressed gene 10 (PEG10), resulting in an enhancement of(More)
This study was aimed to explore the immunophenotyping characteristics of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and their correlation with the curative efficacy. The bone marrow or blood samples were collected from 516 patients with newly diagnosed AML, and their immunophenotypes were analyzed by flow cytometry. The results showed that (1) In 516 cases, the ratios of(More)
The aim of study was to explore the potential application of targeting at Toll-like receptors (TLRs) in the immunotherapy of acute myelocytic leukemia, and to investigate the expression of TLR and the effects of TLR 8 agonist ssRNA40/LyoVec on proliferation, apoptosis and cell cycle of U937 cells. The expression of TLR 1 - 9 in U937 cells was detected by(More)
Pre-engraftment syndrome (PES) after umbilical cord blood transplantation (CBT) remains poorly characterized, and the prognosis and appropriate management are unclear. Therefore, we retrospectively analyzed the incidence, risk factors, manifestations, and clinical outcomes of PES in CBT recipients, who had been treated for hematologic malignancies at our(More)
GF is a common and life-threatening complication of UCBT. Here, we report that successful second transplantation of five patients using G-CSF-mobilized maternal stem cells with non-myeloablative conditioning after GF following double UCBT. The median interval between the two transplants were 38 days. The first transplantation was administered after(More)
Few clinical studies have investigated the role of unrelated cord blood transplantation (CBT) for central nervous system (CNS) relapse of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients with high-risk factors. The aim of this report is to identify the potential benefits of unrelated CBT in high-risk childhood ALL with CNS relapse who has been treated(More)
OBJECTIVE This study sought to examine implantation and implantation kinetics in double umbilical cord blood transplantation (DUCBT). METHODS Twenty-nine patients who underwent a two-unit unrelated donor cord blood transplantation were included in this study. After transplantation, hematopoietic chimerism of the peripheral blood was evaluated based on the(More)
