The evidence for the promising potential for derivatives of Vitamin D (deltanoids) in the treatment of myeloid leukemias is increasing, but currently is not matched by the understanding of the precise mechanisms by which these anti-neoplastic effects are achieved. Unlike solid tumors in which growth retardation by deltanoids appears to result from(More)
Infection with the human T-cell leukemia virus-1 (HTLV-1) is associated with a range of outcomes ranging from asymptomatic infection, to the development of HAM/TSP and adult T cell leukemia/lymphoma. Pathogenesis of these disorders involves complex interactions with the host immune system. Our previous studies showed that phorbol ester (PMA) and T cell(More)
Unlike T cells restricted by major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class Ia or class II molecules, T cells restricted by MHC class I-like molecules demonstrate properties of both innate and adaptive immunity and are therefore considered innate-like lymphocytes (ILLs). ILLs are believed to have immunoregulatory functions, but their roles in autoimmunity and(More)
