    CD4+CD25+FoxP3+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) and Th17 cells are known to be involved in the alloreactive responses in organ transplantation, but little is known about the relationship between Tregs and Th17 cells in the context of liver alloresponse. Here, we investigated whether the circulating...

    We have investigated the value of both conventional and quantitative flow cytometry to detect minimal residual disease in 21 CLL patients in remission including bone marrow histology: eight in complete remission (CR), 11 in nodular partial remission (nPR) and two in PR. The techniques used were...

    ABSTRACT. The authors examined the effects of organic solvents on lymphocyte subpopulations in blood. Natural killer and T-lymphocyte subpopulations and B (CD19+) -lymphocytes were measured with flow cytometry in 16 male rotogravure printers on a Friday and on the following Monday. Numbers of...

    We studied chemokine receptor expression in malignant mesothelioma (MM), reactive mesothelium (RM), and leukocytes in effusions. The expression of leukocyte markers (CD3, CD4, CD8, CD14, CD16, and CD19) and chemokine receptors (CXCR1, CXCR4, CCR2, CCR5, and CCR7) was studied in 11 MM and 16 RM...

    We have developed a non-radioactive flow-cytometry assay to monitor and quantify the target-cell killing activities mediated by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs). This flow-cytometry CTL (FCC) assay is predicated on measurement of CTL-induced caspase activation in target cells through detection of...

    Background. Activated infiltrating T cells play a crucial role in nephritic inflammation via the direct interaction with proximal tubular epithelial cells (TEC). Under inflammatory conditions, major histocompatibility complex class I and II molecules are upregulated on the surface of renal TEC,...

    The aim of the present work was to describe the distribution of lymphocyte P-glycoprotein activity on a population of healthy individuals, taking also into account sex and age. P-glycoprotein activity in lymphocytes was measured by the Rhodamine 123 efflux assay using flow cytometry, in the...
