Mohsen Arabpour; Atri Ghods; Mahmoud Shariat; Abodl-Rasoul Talei; Fereshteh Mehdipour; Abbas Ghaderi

Volume 16, Issue 2 , June 2019, Pages 108-116


  Background: B cells can increase the expression of granzyme B in CD8+ T cells through 4-1BBL/4-1BB interaction and promote anti-tumor immunity. Objective: To investigate the expression of 4-1BBL on B cells in the breast tumor draining lymph nodes (TDLNs) and its association with disease parameters. Methods: ...  Read More

Hadi Hossein-Nataj; Mohsen Masjedi; Mohammad Hassan Emami; Mojgan Mokhtari; Fereshteh Alsahebfosoul

Volume 16, Issue 2 , June 2019, Pages 117-126


  Background: Increased number of intestinal intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs) is a key histological finding in the diagnosis of celiac disease (CD); however, the number of IELs in celiac patients and healthy subjects may vary from one region to another. Additionally, there are some seronegative celiac ...  Read More

4. GPI-Anchored Fibromodulin as a Novel Target in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: Diagnostic and Therapeutic Implications

Lia Farahi; Fatemeh Ghaemimanesh; Saeideh Milani; Seyed Mohsen Razavi; Reza Hadavi; Ali Ahmad Bayat; Ali Salimi; Mohammad Mehdi Akhondi; Hodjattallah Rabbani

Volume 16, Issue 2 , June 2019, Pages 127-141


  Background: We have previously reported the aberrant expression of Fibromodulin (FMOD) in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Although FMOD has been considered as a cytoplasmic or secretory protein, we discovered the cell surface expression of FMOD in leukemic B cells via anchoring with ...  Read More

5. CD93 is Selectively Expressed on Human Myeloma Cells but Not on B Lymphocytes

Shohreh Fakhari; Hamed Bashiri; Bayazid Ghaderi; Kaveh Tari; Ali Jalili

Volume 16, Issue 2 , June 2019, Pages 142-150


  Background: CD93 has originally been known as a C1q receptor, and many studies have demonstrated that CD93 is expressed on hematopoietic stem cells, B cell progenitors, myeloid and monocytic cells. Moreover, CD93 is shown to be expressed on long-lived plasma cells, and CD93 deficient-mice display an ...  Read More

7. Evaluation of Exhausted Regulatory T Cells in Preeclampsia

Nahid Daraei; Mehri Ghafourian; Ata Ghadiri; Afshin Amari; Mahin Najafian; Saber Rokhafrooz

Volume 16, Issue 2 , June 2019, Pages 163-169


  Background: The development of a maternal immune response to fetal antigens and deficiency in regulatory T-cells (Tregs) may lead to preeclampsia. A plausible explanation for the reduced Treg cell function in women with preeclampsia is the presence of exhausted Treg cells which express CD279 or programmed ...  Read More
