In the present study, we show that recombinant human interleukin-1 beta (rhIL-1 beta), which has no effect on the proliferation of human progenitor cells, has synergistic effects on the expansion of human progenitor cells induced by rhIL-3 in liquid cultures. The synergistic effects of rhIL-1 beta with rhIL-3 were observed in liquid cultures using not only(More)
The anti-leukemic antibiotics, anthracyclines, are most effective agents in the treatment of acute leukemia. However, they have severe cardiac toxicities, which ordinarily shows dose-dependency, but sometimes produce acute cardiomyopathy. We experienced Torsade-de-pointes arrhythmia during the treatment of acute myelocytic leukemia (AML); The patient was a(More)
A human plasma cell leukaemia cell line (HSM-2) and a subclone (HSM-2.3) have been established from the bone marrow of a patient with bi-phenotypic leukaemia. Proliferation assays using a variety of cytokines demonstrated that HSM-2 proliferated in response to recombinant interleukin-6 (rIL-6), but did not respond to rIL-1, rIL-2, rIL-3, rIL-4, rIL-5,(More)
A 46-year-old woman was referred to our hospital because of liver dysfunction. She had been suffering from right hypochondralgia for two months. On admission, Laboratory data indicated extrahepatic cholestasis. Both X-ray and endoscopic examinations confirm a submucosal tumor of the papilla of Vater, and surgical diagnosis was performed. Histologically, the(More)
