Summary of "Higher frequency of circulating, but not tissue regulatory T cells in patients with endometriosis."

Endometriosis is one of the most common chronic gynecological disorders affecting women at reproductive age. Dysregulation of immune cells, including regulatory T (Treg) cells has contributed to the growth of ectopic lesion in patients with endometriosis.

Circulating follicular regulatory T cells could inhibit Ig production in a CTLA-4-dependent manner but are dysregulated in ulcerative colitis.

Ulcerative colitis (UC) is a chronic relapsing inflammatory disease that occurs in the gastrointestinal tract, characterized by an upregulation in autoantibody production and antimicrobial antibody pr...

Analysis of colorectal cancer-related mutations by liquid biopsy: utility of circulating cell-free DNA and circulating tumor cells.

We recruited 56 colorectal cancer patients and compared the mutational spectrum of tumor tissue DNA, circulating cell-free DNA, and circulating tumor cell DNA to evaluate the potential of liquid biops...

Characterization of intratumoral and circulating IL-10-producing B cells in gastric cancer.

The tumor microenvironment harbors multiple immunosuppressive mechanisms, many of which involve suppressive immune cells. B regulatory (Breg) cells, as critical regulators of immune responses, were in...

Tumor-suppressive activity of sTRAIL on circulating CD44+ cells in patients with non-small cell lung cancer.

Circulating CD44+ cells have been identified as a prognostic marker for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Serum tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (sTRAIL) is invo...

The role of vitamin D in increasing circulating T regulatory cell numbers and modulating T regulatory cell phenotypes in patients with inflammatory disease or in healthy volunteers: A systematic review.

The evidence for vitamin D and other agents that experimentally modulate T regulatory cells (Tregs) for the treatment of patients with autoimmune or allergic diseases has not been established.

Circulating Tumor DNA in Soft Tissue Sarcoma

This research study will collect blood and tumor tissue samples from patients with soft tissue sarcoma to look at circulating tumor deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). When tumor cells are damage...

Culture of Circulating Tumor Cells Isolated From Cancer Patients With Metastatic Disease

The purpose of this study is to investigate the feasibility of using novel decellularized tissue matrices to isolate and culture circulating tumor cells (CTCs) collected from patients with...

Evaluation of Clinical Significance of Circulating Markers in Breast Cancer Patients Undergoing Herceptin Therapy

About 30% of breast cancers have higher than normal levels of a cellular marker called HER2. The amount of HER2 is often measured in breast tissue. A higher level of this marker usually ...

The Effect of Treatment on Circulating Tumor Cells in Bladder Cancer Patients With Muscle-invasive or Advanced Disease

The measurement of circulating tumor cells is pursued in several cancers including breast and prostate cancer. The number of cells measured in these cancers has been shown to be prognosti...

Trastuzumab to Patients With Advanced Gastric Cancer With HER2 Positive Expression in CTC

BACKGROUND: Gastric cancer is one of the most common cancers and is one of the most deadly cancers. Most patients have advanced disease and should receive first-line trastuzumab-associated...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

CD4-positive T cells that inhibit immunopathology or autoimmune disease in vivo. They inhibit the immune response by influencing the activity of other cell types. Regulatory T-cells include naturally occurring CD4+CD25+ cells, IL-10 secreting Tr1 cells, and Th3 cells.

Exfoliate neoplastic cells circulating in the blood and associated with metastasizing tumors.

An ACUTE PHASE REACTION protein present in low concentrations in normal sera, but found at higher concentrations in sera of older persons and in patients with AMYLOIDOSIS. It is the circulating precusor of amyloid A protein, which is found deposited in AA type AMYLOID FIBRILS.

Obtaining material for pathological examination and analysis, from bodily fluids. Material retrieved includes CELL-FREE NUCLEIC ACIDS; CELL-DERIVED MICROPARTICLES; EXOSOMES; CIRCULATING NEOPLASM CELLS; and other circulating cells and CELLULAR STRUCTURES.

DNA released from tumor cells that is found circulating in PLASMA; SERUM; or other BODY FLUIDS.
