We analyzed the kinetics of donor engraftment among various peripheral blood cell subpopulations and their relationship to outcomes among 120 patients with hematologic malignancies given hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) after nonmyeloablative conditioning consisting of 2 Gy total body irradiation (TBI) with or without added fludarabine. While patients rapidly developed high degrees of donor engraftment, most remained mixed donor/host chimeras for up to 180 days after HCT. Patients given preceding chemotherapies and those given granulocyte colony-stimulating factor-mobilized peripheral blood mononuclear cell (G-PBMC) grafts had the highest degrees of donor chimerism. Low donor T-cell (P = .003) and natural killer (NK) cell (P = .004) chimerism levels on day 14 were associated with increased probabilities of graft rejection. High T-cell chimerism on day 28 was associated with an increased probability of acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) (P = .02). Of 93 patients with measurable malignant disease at transplantation, 41 achieved complete remissions a median of 199 days after HCT; 19 of the 41 were mixed T-cell chimeras when complete remissions were achieved. Earlier establishment of donor NK-cell chimerism was associated with improved progression-free survival (P = .02). Measuring the levels of peripheral blood cell subset donor chimerisms provided useful information on HCT outcomes and might allow early therapeutic interventions to prevent graft rejection or disease progression.

Background: Autoantibodies against exocrine pancreas (PABs) have been reported to be specific for Crohn's disease (CD), albeit at a low prevalence (30%). We studied PABs in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), unaffected family members, and control subjects. Methods: A Belgian study cohort of 575 subjects, including 289 IBD patients (CD, 169 patients; ulcerative colitis [UC], 120 patients), 108 unaffected first-degree relatives, 78 subjects with non-IBD gastrointestinal disorders (gastrointestinal control subjects [GIcos]), and 100 healthy control subjects (Hcos), were tested for PAB by a standardized indirect immunofluorescence method. Results: The prevalence of PABs in this study cohort was 32% for CD, 23.3% for UC, and 22.2% for their unaffected family members (all P < 0.001), compared with 1.3% for GIcos and 0% for Hcos. Two staining patterns could be observed: an intracellular pattern (IC); and an extracellular pattern (EC). The EC was significantly more prevalent in CD patients compared with UC patients (P = 0.014), and higher titers of this pattern were found in CD patients (P = 0.01). Both PAB patterns were negatively associated with stricturing disease behavior of CD (P = 0.021). The IC was associated with familial CD (P = 0.0009) and familial UC (P = 0.0003). Conclusions: The prevalence of PAB found in CD patients in this study was similar to that cited in previous reports. In contrast to these reports, we also found an increased prevalence of PABs in patients with UC and in unaffected first-degree relatives of IBD patients. We observed two main staining patterns, both of which were present in IBD and were associated with specific phenotypes of the disease. [less ▲]

A homologous series of surfactins containing β-hydroxy fatty acids having 13, 14, or 15 carbon atoms were isolated from the supernatant of Bacillus subtilis strain S499 cultures. Their surface-active properties at the air-water interface were then evaluated. Dynamic surface tension data were analyzed by the relaxation function γt=γm+(γo−γm)/[1+(t/t*)n]. Based on various parameters t*, n, vmax, γm calculated from this equation, the dynamic surface properties of surfactin were found to depend on both bulk concentration and hydrophobic character of the alkyl chain. At low concentrations of surfactin, the dynamic surface tension (γd) decreased with increasing carbon atom number of the surfactin alkyl chain (n=13 to 15). However, at high concentrations, the maximum decrease of 41-4 was achieved by surfactin-C14. In contrast, more strongly hydrophobic alkyl chains in surfactins always enhanced their ability in reducing the equilibrium surface tensions and their aptitude in forming micelles. [less ▲]

Introduction : Le dossier de santé informatisé (DSI), utilisé quotidiennement en soins primaires, peut constituer un instrument de récolte de données utilisables localement pour l’amélioration de la qualité des soins et, à une plus grande échelle, une base de données épidémiologiques. Malgré une politique de promotion du DSI de la Fédération des Maisons médicales belges francophones, son utilisation reste très marginale. Méthodes : Huit maisons médicales motivées par l’informatisation de leur dossier ont été rencontrées. Des indicateurs quantitatifs d’utilisation du DSI ont été mesurés. Une évaluation qualitative des résistances à l’informatisation et des solutions pouvant y être apportées a été réalisée par la technique du groupe nominal. Résultats : L’utilisation du DSI reste faible, sauf exception. Les solutions proposées ont pu être regroupées en 5 catégories : éthique (confidentialité, relation avec le patient, relation du thérapeute avec la machine), formation (à l’informatique, à la logique classificatoire, formation accessible), recherche de sens (envie d’utiliser les outputs locaux dans des projets d’amélioration de la qualité des soins, comparaison avec d’autres praticiens, encadrement local), pratique (amélioration du logiciel, amélioration de l’organisation interne des équipes, gestion du temps passé à l’encodage des données) et pluridisciplinarité (coordination entre secteurs, effort soutenu par l’ensemble de l’équipe, projets communs). Discussion : Les praticiens sont prêts à s’informatiser s’ils en retirent des bénéfices immédiats (connaissance de leur patientèle et de leur fonctionnement d’équipe). Ils ont exprimé le besoin de disposer d’un outil simple à utiliser, qui ne leur fasse pas perdre de temps et qui respecte leurs spécificités de travail et d’organisation (équipe pluridisciplinaires et autogérées). Ils ont exprimé le besoin d’un soutien extérieur, sous forme de formations adaptées et d’encadrement pour la gestion des données. Les préoccupations de type éthique (sécurité, transfert de données, place de l’ordinateur dans la relation avec le patient) sont étonnamment peu présentes. [less ▲]

The Src homology 2-containing inositol phosphatase SHIP1 functions in hemopoietic cells to limit activation events mediated by PI3K products, including Akt activation and cell survival. In contrast to the limited cellular expression of SHIP1, the related isoform SHIP2, is widely expressed in both parenchymal and hemopoietic cells. The goal of this study was to determine how SHIP2 functions to regulate M-CSF signaling. We report that 1) SHIP2 was tyrosine-phosphorylated in M-CSF-stimulated human alveolar macrophages, human THP-1 cells, murine macrophages, and the murine macrophage cell line RAW264; 2) SHIP2 associated with the M-CSF receptor after M-CSF stimulation; and 3) SHIP2 associated with the actin-binding protein filamin and localization to the cell membrane, requiring the proline-rich domain, but not on the Src homology 2 domain of SHIP2. Analyzing the function of SHIP2 in M-CSF-stimulated cells by expressing either wild-type SHIP2 or an Src homology 2 domain mutant of SHIP2 reduced Akt activation in response to M-CSF stimulation. In contrast, the expression of a catalytically deficient mutant of SHIP2 or the proline-rich domain of SHIP2 enhanced Akt activation. Similarly, the expression of wild-type SHIP2 inhibited NF-B-mediated gene transcription. Finally, fetal liver-derived macrophages from SHIP2 gene knockout mice enhanced activation of Akt in response to M-CSF treatment. These data suggest a novel regulatory role for SHIP2 in M-CSF-stimulated myeloid cells [less ▲]
