    A syndrome of microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, renal dysfunction and neurological abnormalities was first noted in bone marrow transplant recipients 22 years ago. Now known as transplantation-associated thrombotic microangiopathy (TA-TMA) to distinguish it from other thrombotic...

    BACKGROUND: Endometriosis, uncontrolled proliferation of ectopic and eutopic endometriotic tissues, is common in women at reproductive age, and may affect fertility. The role of macrophages in the pathogenesis is well proved, but engagement of T cells in the pathogenesis of endometriosis is a...

    In vitro tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), interferon-γ (IFN-γ) and interleukin-2 (IL-2) production, serum neopterin levels, and T-lymphocyte subpopulations were determined on a monthly basis in 22 MS patients. We found increased in vitro TNF-α production from 4 weeks on prior to...

    SummaryIn chronic inflammatory conditions, mononuclear cells infiltrate the connective tissue attracted by fibroblast-secreted chemokines. The role of fibroblasts in sustaining the lymphocyte immune response upon cellular infiltration is so far unresolved. We here report that, upon prolonged...

    Lymphotoxin-alpha (LT), also called TNF-beta, which belongs to the 'TNF family' was originally isolated from a lymphoblas-toid cell line. LT enhances the proliferation of activated B cells and augments B cell proliferation induced by IL-2. It functions as an autocrine growth factor for...
