- Natural killer-type receptors for HLA class I antigens are clonally expressed in lymphoproliferative disorders of natural killer and T-cell typeT Hoffmann
Haematological Laboratory, Department of Research, Kantonsspital, Basel Institute for Immunology, Basel, and Division of Haematology, Kantonsspital, Switzerland
Br J Haematol 110:525-36. 2000..We conclude that NKRs are clonally expressed in lymphoproliferative disorders of NK or T-cell origin. NKR repertoires may represent a novel tool in diagnosing clonal disorders of NK and T-cell type...

Departement Zentrallabor, Kantonsspital, Basel
Schweiz Med Wochenschr 128:1611-3. 1998..0015). Median plasma cell counts in secondary aspirates were 57% lower compared to primary aspirates. We conclude that the use of secondary aspirates leads to systematic underestimation of the bone marrow plasma cell content...
