Intravascular T-cell lymphomas are rare, poorly characterized lesions. We discuss the clinical, radiologic and especially the laboratory characteristics of a lesion which presented in a 62-year-old woman with a history of progressive CNS abnormalities. Throughout the course of the disease, radiologic findings consisted mainly of multifocal mixed areas of ischemia and vasogenic edema involving cortical and subcortical regions. A brain biopsy identified an abnormal T-cell population confined to lumens of vessels...

The pathological hallmark of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) is marrow dysplasia, which represents the basis of the WHO classification of these disorders. This classification provides clinicians with a useful tool for defining the different subtypes of MDS and individual prognosis. The WHO proposal has raised some concern regarding minimal diagnostic criteria particularly in patients with normal karyotype without robust morphological markers of dysplasia (such as ring sideroblasts or excess of blasts). Therefore, there is clearly need to refine the accuracy to detect marrow dysplasia...

BACKGROUND: Survival of adults with B-Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia requires accurate risk stratification of patients in order to provide the appropriate therapy. Contemporary techniques, using clinical and cytogenetic variables are incomplete for prognosis prediction. METHODS: To improve the classification of adult patients diagnosed with B-ALL into prognosis groups, two strategies were examined and combined: the expression of the ID1/ID3/IGJ gene signature by RT-PCR and the immunophenotypic profile of 19 markers proposed in the EuroFlow protocol by Flow Cytometry in bone marrow samples...

INTRODUCTION: Mixed-phenotype acute leukemias (MPALs) are a heterogeneous group of rare leukemias constituting approximately 2%-5% of all leukemias, in which assigning a single lineage of origin is not possible. They are diagnosed by either the presence of antigens of more than one lineage or by the presence of dual population of blasts belonging to two or more lineages. We highlight the clinicopathological, immunophenotype, and genetic data of a cohort (n = 14) of patients diagnosed and treated at our center...

Immunophenotyping by flow cytometry (FCM) is a worldwide mainstay in leukemia diagnostics. For concordant multicentric application, however, a gap exists between available classification systems, technologic standardization, and clinical needs. The AIEOP-BFM consortium induced an extensive standardization and validation effort between its nine national reference laboratories collaborating in immunophenotyping of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). We elaborated common guidelines which take advantage of the possibilities of multi-color FCM: marker panel requirements, immunological blast gating, in-sample controls, tri-partite antigen expression rating (negative vs...

Parkinson's disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disease. The cause of neurodegeneration in PD is not completely understood, and evidence has shown that inflammatory/immune changes may be involved in PD pathophysiology. Herein, we aimed to determine the profile of the peripheral immune system in patients with PD in comparison with controls. Forty patients with PD and 25 age- and gender-matched controls were enrolled in this study. From these, 23 PD patients and 21 controls were included in the immunophenotyping analyses...

In these last few decades the great explosion of the molecular approaches has casted a little shadow on the DNA quantitative analysis. Nevertheless DNA cytochemistry represented a long piece of history in cell biology since the advent of the Feulgen reaction. This discovery was really the milestone of the emerging quantitative cytochemistry, and scientists from all over the world produced a very large literature on this subject. This first era of quantitation (histochemistry followed by cytochemistry) started by means of absorption measurements (histophotometry and cytophotometry)...

Selinexor, a Selective Inhibitor of Nuclear Export (SINE) compound targeting exportin-1, has previously been shown to inhibit melanoma cell growth in vivo. We hypothesized that combining selinexor with antibodies that block or disrupt T cell checkpoint molecule signaling would exert superior anti-melanoma activity. In vitro, selinexor increased PD-1 and CTLA4 gene expression in leukocytes and induced PD L1 gene expression in human melanoma cell lines. Mice bearing syngeneic B16F10 melanoma tumors demonstrated a significant reduction in tumor growth rate in response to the combination of selinexor and anti-PD-1 or anti-PD-L1 antibodies (p<0...

BACKGROUND: Comprehensive understanding of cellular immune subsets involved in regulation of tumor progression is central to the development of cancer immunotherapies. Single cell immunophenotyping has historically been accomplished by flow cytometry (FC) analysis, enabling the analysis of up to 18 markers. Recent advancements in mass cytometry (MC) have facilitated detection of over 50 markers, utilizing high resolving power of mass spectrometry (MS). This study examined an analytical and operational feasibility of MC for an in-depth immunophenotyping analysis of the tumor microenvironment, using the commercial CyTOF™ instrument, and further interrogated challenges in managing the integrity of tumor specimens...

Absolute Lymphocyte Count (ALC) has been recently established as a prognostic factor of survival in pediatric Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). A retrospective analysis of 132 patients treated according the BFM - ALLIC 2002 protocol was performed in a single institution. A possible association between ALC values and Overall Survival (OS) or Event-Free Survival (EFS) was evaluated at multiple time points during induction chemotherapy. ALC higher than 350 cells/μL measured on the 33th day of induction was associated with better Overall- and Event-Free Survival in both Kaplan-Meier (OS 88...

INTRODUCTION: The workup of lymphoproliferative disorders (LPDs) involves the combined use of flow cytometry (FC) and immunohistochemistry (IHC). This often results in duplicate immunophenotypic testing and adds costs that may not be eligible for reimbursement based on the Medicare National Correct Coding Initiative. We aimed to establish a cost-effective diagnostic algorithm based on initial FC categorization to reduce repetitive immunophenotyping. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 242 cases of suspected LPDs with concurrent FC and IHC testing over a 12-month period...
