Mature NK cells, which are present in peripheral blood
, make up almost all NK cells, and, in the decidua, there is a large amount of immature NK cells that are known as uterine NK cells [17-19].
Flow cytometry analysis showed that the number of B10 cells significantly decreased in peripheral blood
of ulcerative colitis patients in remission (P < 0.05, versus nonremission group) (Figure 5(a)); the proportion of Th17 cells significantly increased (P < 0.05, versus nonremission group) (Figure 5(b)).
Compared with the healthy control, the ratio of CD3+, CD3+CD4+, and NK cells was decreased in the T lymphocytes in the peripheral blood
of patients with late-stage NScLc (P < 0.05, Table 2).
We then determined the function profile of NK cells from the peripheral blood
of GC patients.
The mean survival time is 3 to 30 months once neoplastic cells appear in the peripheral blood
or bone marrow.
In pregnant women with mycoplasma infection a significant increase in the mediator of cellular immune responses of IFN-[gamma] was detected, both in serum (136.7 [+ or -] 3.4 and 12.75 [+ or -] 0.05, P<0.001) and isolated peripheral blood
lymphocytes (205.55 [+ or -] 1.97 and 28.4 [+ or -] 1.45, P<0.05) compared to those in the group of healthy pregnant women.
* The sensitivity of the "OTHERS" parameter in detecting activated B-lymphocytes in the peripheral blood
may however be as low as 0.2%, but further studies are needed to confirm this.
"Instead, our approach has involved profiling of gene expression in peripheral blood
mononuclear cells that are involved in tumor immunity," he said.
He and his colleagues profiled "gene expression in peripheral blood
mononuclear cells that are involved in tumor immunity" by isolating lymphocytes from peripheral blood
and performing global gene expression profiling.
Genes expressed in lymphocytes isolated from peripheral blood
mononuclear cells can accurately distinguish patients with early-stage lung cancer from controls, according to research presented last week at the annual meeting of the American Thoracic Society in Toronto.
The Marrow Cellution[TM] aspiration system had significantly more CD 34+ and CFU-f per mL as compared to the EMCYTE[R] BMC system with less contaminating peripheral blood
as indicated by the higher ratio of CFU-f to nucleated cells.
