CD38 expression predicts poor prognosis and might be a potential therapy target in extranodal NK/T cell lymphoma, nasal type.
Guangzhou, China. In Ann Hematol, 14 May 2015
In multivariate survival analysis including CD38 expression status, International Prognostic Index (IPI) score, local tumor invasion, and chemotherapy regimens, it was found that strong expression of CD38 and non-asparaginase-based chemoregimens were independent adverse prognostic factors for PFS (p = 0.009 and 0.027, respectively), while local tumor invasion and higher IPI score were independent adverse prognostic factors for OS (p = 0.002 and 0.035, respectively).
Treatment Approach to Newly Diagnosed Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma.
Lyon, France. In Semin Hematol, 30 Apr 2015
High prognostic heterogeneity is observed among patients with DLBCL with long-term survival ranging from 30% to more than 90% according to clinic-biological prognostics such as the International Prognostic Index (IPI) and its subsequent revised variants.
Mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial disease: genetic, immunological, and clinical features of inborn errors of IFN-γ immunity.
New York City, United States. In Semin Immunol, Dec 2014
Since 1996, nine MSMD-causing genes, including seven autosomal (IFNGR1, IFNGR2, STAT1, IL12B, IL12RB1, ISG15, and IRF8) and two X-linked (NEMO, and CYBB) genes have been discovered.
Novel Agents in the Treatment of Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: A Review About the Future.
New York City, United States. In Clin Lymphoma Myeloma Leuk, Oct 2014
In this review article we discuss in detail several of the novel agents that are being studied or approved for the treatment of CLL including: phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase inhibitors (idelalisib and IPI-145), Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitors (ibrutinib), B cell lymphoma 2 inhibitors (ABT-263 and ABT-199), new anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies (obinutuzumab), cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors (flavopiridol and dinaciclib), immunomodulators (lenalidomide) and chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy.
Ectodermal dysplasia: a genetic review.
Mysore, India. In Int J Clin Pediatr Dent, 2012
The history and lessons learned from hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia (HED) may serve as an example for unraveling of the cause and pathogenesis of other ectodermal dysplasia syndromes by demonstrating that phenotypically identical syndromes can be caused by mutations in different genes (EDA, EDAR, EDARADD), that mutations in the same gene can lead to different phenotypes and that mutations in the genes further downstream in the same signaling pathway (NEMO) may modify the phenotype quite profoundly.
