Therapeutic roles of antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) in relapsed/refractory lymphomas.

Hematol Oncol Stem Cell Ther 2021 Jul 28. Epub 2021 Jul 28.

Department of Blood & Marrow Transplant and Cellular Immunotherapy (BMT CI), Moffitt Cancer Center, United States. Electronic address:

Relapsed or refractory lymphoma is commonly treated with combination chemoimmunotherapy and cellular immunotherapy. Modest response rates and associated toxicities are obstacles to achieving durable remission using traditional cytotoxic chemotherapy, especially in frail patients with advanced disease. Antibody drug conjugates represent a new class of novel targeted agents with significant improvement in therapeutic efficacy in the treatment of lymphomas. Read More

Impact of cholesterol on proinflammatory monocyte production by the bone marrow.

Eur Heart J 2021 Aug 3. Epub 2021 Aug 3.

Department of Experimental Vascular Medicine, Amsterdam UMC, University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam Cardiovascular Sciences, Meibergdreef 9, Amsterdam 1105 AZ, The Netherlands.

Aim: Preclinical work indicates that low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) not only drives atherosclerosis by directing the innate immune response at plaque level but also augments proinflammatory monocyte production in the bone marrow (BM) compartment. In this study, we aim to unravel the impact of LDL-C on monocyte production in the BM compartment in human subjects.

Methods And Results: A multivariable linear regression analysis in 12 304 individuals of the EPIC-Norfolk prospective population study showed that LDL-C is associated with monocyte percentage (β = 0. Read More

HLA 2021 Aug 2. Epub 2021 Aug 2.

Division of Laboratory and Genomic Medicine, Department of Pathology and Immunology, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO, USA.

The experience of individuals with Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) ranges from asymptomatic to life threatening multi-organ dysfunction. Specific HLA alleles may affect the predisposition to severe COVID-19 due to their role in presenting viral peptides to launch the adaptive immune response to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). In this population-based case-control study in the midwestern United States, we performed high-resolution HLA typing of 234 cases hospitalized for COVID-19 in the St. Read More

Biomed Res Int 2021 13;2021:4822383. Epub 2021 Jul 13.

Department of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery, Tianjin Hospital, Tianjin University, Tianjin 300211, China.

Objective: Discectomy remains the classic procedure for treating lumbar intervertebral disc (IVD) herniation, but the occurrence of defects after discectomy is thought to be an important cause generating recurrent and accelerated IVD degeneration. Previous studies attempted suture of the annulus fissure, but the validity of this technique on restraining the degenerative process is controversial. On the other hand, cell therapies have been shown in multiple clinical and basic studies. Read More

Programa de Pós-Graduação em Imunologia Básica e Aplicada, Universidade Federal do Amazonas (UFAM), Manaus, Brazil.

In the hematopoietic microenvironment, leukemic cells secrete factors that imbalanced chemokine and cytokine production. However, the network of soluble immunological molecules in the bone marrow microenvironment of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) remains underexplored. Herein, we evaluated the levels of the immunological molecules (CXCL8, CCL2, CXCL9, CCL5, CXCL10, IL-6, TNF, IFN-, IL-17A, IL-4, IL-10, and IL-2) in the bone marrow plasma of 47 recently diagnosed B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) patients during induction therapy using cytometric beads arrays.

Development of Advanced Cell-Based Therapy by Regulating Cell-Cell Interactions.

Kosuke Kusamori

Biol Pharm Bull 2021 ;44(8):1029-1036

Laboratory of Biopharmaceutics, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Tokyo University of Science.

Cell-based therapy for disease treatment involves the transplantation of cells obtained either from self or others into relevant patients. While cells constituting the body tissues maintain homeostasis by performing remarkable functions through complicated cell-cell interactions, transplanted cells, which are generally cultured as a monolayer, are unable to recapitulate similar interactions in vivo. The regulation of cell-cell interactions can immensely increase the function and therapeutic effect of transplanted cells. Read More

A panel of epigenetically dysregulated Wnt signaling pathway genes for non-invasive diagnosis of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Cancer Biomark 2021 Jul 16. Epub 2021 Jul 16.

Biopharmaceuticals and Biomarkers Discovery Lab., Institute of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, University of the Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan.

Background: Genetic and epigenetic dysregulation of Wnt signaling pathway is widely linked up with abnormal proliferation and/or epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition, in different cancer cell types.

Objective: In the present research, we have tested whether promoter DNA methylation of a set of Wnt/non-Wnt genes such as [cadherin-2 (CDH2)], "present in circulation", could serve as "bone-marrow biopsy surrogate" and help in diagnosing the status, sub-type or treatment outcome in pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients.

Methods: Promoter DNA methylation was quantified in the bisulfite modified blood from the pediatric ALL patients (n= 86) in comparison with age-matched cancer-free subjects (n= 28), using real-time methylation specific PCR followed by rigorous statistical validations. Read More
