Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a frequent and life threatening complication of allogeneic haematogenesis stem cell transplantation (aHSCT). The correlation of CD4(+)CD25(+) regulatory T cells (Tregs) in the patients after aHSCT to the occurrence and severity of acute and chronic GVHD (aGVHD and cGVHD) is not fully investigated. Here, we examined the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the abnormalities of T regulatory cells (Treg) in salivary glands and peripheral blood in patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome (pSS). METHODS Levels of CD4+CD25+ high T cells of the peripheral blood of 52 patients with pSS were measured by flow-cytometric assay. Lower lip salivary gland biopsies were examined by(More)
Graft-versus-host disease continues to be a major life-threatening complication after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cells transplantation (aHSCT). The relationship of acute GVHD (aGVHD) with the levels of peripheral CD4(+)CD25(high) T cells in patients after aHSCT and in their corresponding donors is not fully investigated. We examined the levels of(More)
Although the pathogenetic mechanisms of diabetic nephropathy (DN) have not been elucidated thoroughly, an inflammatory mechanism has been suggested to contribute to its development and progression. Moncyte chemoattractant protein (MCP)-1 is a chemokine that can attract macrophages and T cells from the circulation to the local kidney, then activate them, and(More)
Platelet P-selectin plays important roles in inflammation and contributes to thrombosis and hemostasis. Although it has been reported that von Willebrand factor (VWF) affects P-selectin expression on endothelial cells, little information is available regarding regulation of platelet P-selectin expression. Here, we first observed that P-selectin expression(More)
To determine whether peripheral blood absolute lymphocyte/absolute monocyte counts ratio (ALC/AMC ratio) at diagnosis predicts survival of diffuse large B cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients treated with standard first-line regimens, we retrospectively analyzed 244 patients with DLBCL who were treated with standard cyclophosphamide, hydroxydaunorubicin,(More)
Recently, Th17 cell-associated responses have received growing attention; however, the role of IL-22 (a cytokines also produced by Th17 cells) in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) has not been widely explored. In this study, we analyze the frequencies of IL-22-positive CD4+/CD8+ T cells in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from(More)
Tumor immune escape mechanism mediated by CD4+CD25+regulatory T cells (Tregs) is a key factor in the pathogenesis of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). IL-35, as a novel inhibitory cytokine, is produced by Tregs specially and regulates functions of Tregs in murine. However, IL-35 expression of Tregs in human is still disputed, and its role in AML is yet to be(More)
Despite the use of modern immunochemotherapy regimens, a significant proportion of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients will relapse. We proposed absolute lymphocyte count/absolute monocyte count ratio (ALC/AMC ratio) as a new prognostic factor in relapsed or primary refractory DLBCL. We retrospectively analyzed 163 patients who have been(More)
