How I treat ALL in Down's syndrome: pathobiology and management.
Tel Aviv-Yafo, Israel. In Blood, Feb 2014
Biologically, these heterogeneous leukemias are characterized by under-representation of the common cytogenetic subgroups of childhood ALL and overrepresentation of CRLF2-IL7R-JAK-STAT activating genetic aberrations.
IL-7R-mediated signaling in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Lisbon, Portugal. In Adv Biol Regul, May 2013
However, the two main pathways activated by IL-7, JAK/STAT5 and PI3K/Akt/mTOR, have both been implicated in cancer and there is considerable evidence that IL-7 and its receptor (IL-7R), formed by IL-7Rα (encoded by IL7R) and γc, may partake in T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (T-ALL) development.

Nagasaki, Japan. In Nihon Rinsho Meneki Gakkai Kaishi, 2011
Among 21 non-HLA susceptibility loci for PBC identified in GWASs of European descent, 10 loci (CD80, IKZF3, IL7R, NFKB1, STAT4, TNFAIP2, CXCR5, MAP3K7IP1, rs6974491, DENND1B) showed significant associations in the Japanese population.
