This work explored the clinical implication of plasma XO activity in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome and found that locally‐ and systemically‐activated xanthine oxidase (XO) is linked to metabolic derangement in humans and rodents.
Adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells ameliorate bone marrow aplasia related with graft-versus-host disease in experimental murine models.
Characterization of patients with aggressive adult T-cell leukemia–lymphoma in Okinawa, Japan: a retrospective analysis of a large cohort
Compared with other areas in Japan, in Okinawa, the proportion of patients aged ≥90 years with clinical features of aggressive ATL is higher, outcomes are poorer, and the disease is associated with a higher prevalence of strongyloidiasis.
Initial low-dose valganciclovir as a preemptive therapy is effective for cytomegalovirus infection in allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant recipients
Observations suggest that the initial dose of VGC in preemptive therapy for CMV can be safely decreased to 900 mg QD for patients with low-level CMV antigenemia following allogeneic HSCT.
Phosphorylated STAT3 expression predicts better prognosis in smoldering type of adult T‐cell leukemia/lymphoma
Both univariate and multivariate analysis revealed that pSTAT3 expression was significantly associated with better overall survival and progression‐free survival in the smoldering type of ATLL, whereas STAT3 mutation was not related to a line of clinical outcome.
Evaluation of two prognostic indices for adult T‐cell leukemia/lymphoma in the subtropical endemic area, Okinawa, Japan
The low‐risk ATL‐PI group had a better prognosis than the JCOG‐PI moderate‐risk group, suggesting that ATL‐ PI would be more useful than JCOG'SPI for establishing and examining novel treatment strategies for ATL patients with a best prognosis.
Fatal pneumonia and viremia due to human parainfluenza virus type 1 in a patient with adult T-cell leukemia–lymphoma treated with mogamulizumab
Clinical usefulness of FDG–PET/CT for the evaluation of various types of adult T-cell leukemia
Low accumulation of FDG in indolent ATL patients with lymphadenopathy might predict that it is not a sign of disease transformation, but rather a reactive manifestation, and FDG–PET/CT findings could be useful for clinically grading ATL.
