    ABSTRACT: Objectives The effects of NOD2 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) on Grade III-IV acute graft-versus-host disease (aGVHD) risk are somewhat contradictory in different studies. The aim of the meta-analysis was to clarify the effects of NOD2 SNPs on the incidence of Grade III-IV aGVHD. Methods We searched PubMed, EMBASE, Web of SCIENCE, WanFang and Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) databases to collect eligible publications. Odds ratios (ORs)with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to assess the association between NOD2 polymorphisms and Grade III-IV aGVHD risk. Results A total of nine studies from eight publications met the inclusion criteria and were included in this meta-analysis. Patient NOD2 SNPs were not associated with aGVHD risk. A tendency of higher risk to develop Grade III-IV aGVHD was found in patients with pairs NOD2 SNPs. Subgroup analyses showed that pairs NOD2 SNPs were associated with Grade III-IV aGVHD in the Caucasian population and in identical sibling donors (IS), but not in matched unrelated donors. In patients who received hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) with T-cell depletion and gut decontamination, there was still an association between pairs NOD2 SNPs and Grade III-IV aGVHD risk. Conclusions Our meta-analysis suggests that pairs NOD2 SNPs, not patient NOD2 SNPs, may be associated with Grade III-IV aGVHD risk, especially in the Caucasian population. It is also indicated that in pairs NOD2 polymorphisms group, patients who receive HSCT from IS may experience higher risk of Grade III-IV aGVHD.

    ABSTRACT: CD45RA has been found highly expressed on leukemia cells and may be a potential target of the disease. In this study, an anti-CD45RA single-chain antibody fragment (scFv3A4) was genetically linked to the N terminus of the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) to generate a scFv3A4-EGFP fusion protein. The scFvE3A4-EGFP with a molecular weight of 57 kDa was stably expressed and secreted from the transfected CHO cells through the ER/Golgi-dependent pathway. The fusion protein was soluble in the culture supernatant and the yield was 1350μg/L. Flow cytometry analysis showed that the scFv3A4-EGFP had the same binding site and a very similar reactivity pattern with its parental murine monoclonal antibody (mAb) 3A4. Furthermore, comparing to conventional labeled 3A4-FITC antibody, the scFv3A4-EGFP was more resistant to illumination and more suitable for immunofluorescence histology (IFH) detection. Therefore, the scFv3A4-EGFP fusion protein can be a powerful tool to investigate the targeting of CD45RA on leukemia cells, biological activity of the target and possibly for the genetic manipulation of the antibody.

    ABSTRACT: Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) in different ethnicities has been described in the literature, but few cases in patients of Chinese descent have been reported. Here, we describe the case of a Chinese neonate presenting with HLH carrying novel, compound heterozygous mutations of the UNC13D gene, including [c.2295_2298delGCAG, p.Glu765Aspfs*27] in exon 23, c.-250C>T, c.1+30G>A, c.279C>T, c.888G>C, c.18+36A>G, c.20-48T>C, c.1977C>T, c.2296C>T, c.24-46C>T, c.26-9_26-8insC, c.2599A>G, c.28+48C>T and c.3198A>G, some of which have not been reported in the literature. Cytokine profile analyses were performed in this patient, and the results were consistent with our previous findings in HLH patients. Cytokine profile monitoring may be helpful in differentiating among various clinical phases of HLH.

    ABSTRACT: The prognostic value of absolute lymphocytic count (ALC) has been a recent matter of debate in the study of non-Hodgkin-lymphoma. To evaluate the prognostic value of ALC at diagnosis in patients with diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL), we performed a meta-analysis of published studies that provided survival information with reference to ALC at diagnosis. Six studies covering a total of 1,206 subjects were included in this analysis. The summary hazard ratios of low ALC for overall survival were 2.72 (95% confidence interval (CI) 2.15-3.45, P < 0.001) in the entire population, 2.96 (95% CI 2.04-4.29, P < 0.001) in the population that received CHOP, and 2.78 (95% CI 1.87-4.13, P < 0.001) in the population that received R-CHOP. The corresponding ratios for progression-free survival were 2.79 (95% CI 1.90-4.11, P < 0.001) in the entire population, and 2.56 (95% CI 1.66-3.96, P < 0.001) in the population that received R-CHOP. In conclusion, our systematic analysis suggests that low ALC has an adverse effect on outcome in DLBCL. Although it should be borne in mind that this meta-analysis was mainly based on data abstracted from observational studies, these results may justify risk-adapted therapeutic strategies for DLBCL to account for ALC at diagnosis.
