Increased frequency of TCR gamma delta + T cells in disease-free survivors following T cell-depleted, partially mismatched, related donor bone marrow transplantation for leukemia.

Recent interest has focused on the function of gamma delta + T cells in immune responses. However, their role in allogeneic bone marrow transplantation (BMT) remains undefined. We report on a group of 43 leukemia patients who survived for at least 100 days following transplantation using partially HLA-mismatched grafts from related donors that were T cell… CONTINUE READING
