Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA 98109, USA
J Immunol 181:6435-46. 2008..This example is the first on viral immune escape via exploitation of a "hole" in the T cell repertoire, and may represent an important general mechanism of viral persistence...

Department of Hematology and Van Creveld Clinic, UMC Utrecht, The Netherlands
Biol Blood Marrow Transplant 15:671-8. 2009..8% to 20.1%. We hypothesize that most likely host B cells initiate cGVHD, and thus, host B cell depletion prior to RICT by Rtx might be a valuable strategy to reduce extensive cGVHD after RICT...
