Change of CD20 expression was examined in cases of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). CD20 expression after treatment with anti-CD20 antibody (rituximab, Rx) for DLBCL was examined in 23 cases who received serial biopsy by immunohistochemistry (IHC) and flow cytometry (FCM). CD20– by IHC and/or FCM was defined as CD20–. Four cases were CD20– at initial(More)
Fournier's gangrene is a life-threatening disorder caused by aerobic and anaerobic bacterial infection. We report a case of genital infection as the initial warning sign of acute myeloid leukemia. We were able to prevent progression to Fournier's gangrene in our patient by immediate intensive therapy with incision, blood transfusions and intravenous(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the tumor accumulation and heterogeneity of (111)In-ibritumomab tiuxetan (Zevalin®) and tumor accumulation of (18)F-fluoro-deoxyglucose (FDG) and compare them to the tumor response in B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma patients receiving (90)Y-ibritumomab tiuxetan (Zevalin®) therapy. METHODS(More)
A 68-year-old man was referred to our hospital due to a high fever and pancytopenia. Neither tumors nor infectious lesions were detected. Hemophagocytosis was observed on the bone marrow (BM) smear, although without abnormal cells. Prednisolone therapy was ineffective for the patient's high fever. Later on, we obtained the results of a BM biopsy indicating(More)
Patients with hematologic malignancies are immunosuppressive and may develop cutaneous or invasive infections as a primary sign of immune suppression. Acute promyelocytic leukemia (acute myeloid leukemia M3) is caused by translocation of reciprocal chromosomal rearrangement t(15;17), which produces an oncogenic protein. We herein describe a 71-year-old man(More)
Summsry The present study examined the mechanism(s) of tolerance induction for intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (ilELs) using an alloantigen (Ag)-specific "y//t T cell receptor (TCR 3'//~) transgenic (Tg) model. In Tg Ag-bearing H-2 bid mice (Tgb/a), Tg ilELs were Thy-l-, CD44 +, CD45R (B220) +, and CD5 +, whereas in syngeneic Tg a/d mice, ilELs were(More)
