  • tissue
  • It is commonly associated with stem cell or bone marrow transplant but the term also applies to other forms of tissue graft. (ebi.ac.uk)
  • Immune cells (white blood cells) in the donated tissue (the graft) recognize the recipient (the host) as foreign (nonself). (wikipedia.org)
  • Congenital disorders of the salivary glands are rare, but may include: Aplasia Atresia Ectopic salivary gland tissue Stafne defect - an uncommon condition which some consider to be an anatomic variant rather than a true disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • When memory helper T cells' CD4 receptors bind to the MHC class II molecules which are expressed on the surfaces of the target cells of the graft tissue, the memory helper T cells' T cell receptors (TCRs) can recognize their target antigen that is presented by the MHC class II molecules. (wikipedia.org)
  • transplantation
  • Now, a new study led by infectious disease researcher Dr. Sachiko Seo, formerly of Fred Hutch and now a physician at the National Cancer Research Center East in Chiba, Japan, and Boeckh and published last month in the journal Haematologica has found that like more "serious" viruses, rhinovirus can cause pneumonia -- and when it does, it can be deadly to those recovering from transplantation.

  • Musculoskeletal
  • Dr. Suarez-Almazor holds a K24 Midcareer Investigator Award from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (K24 AR053593). (bmj.com)
  • transplants
  • The acute or fulminant form of the disease (aGvHD) is normally observed within the first 100 days post-transplant, and is a major challenge to transplants owing to associated morbidity and mortality. (wikipedia.org)
  • lichen
  • Lichen planus (LP) is a disease characterized by itchy reddish-purple polygon-shaped skin lesions on the lower back, wrists, and ankles. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lichen planopilaris is considered an orphan disease with no definitive prevalence data and no proven effective treatments. (wikipedia.org)
  • potential hosts
  • It was introduced to the UK in 2006 (as FL509) by Hampshire & Isle of Wight Branch, Butterfly Conservation, as part of an assessment of DED-resistant cultivars as potential hosts of the endangered White-letter Hairstreak. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • Significant progress has been made in recent years in understanding the pathogen- esis of the disease, and some of these advances have been translated into clinical trials. (slideshare.net)
  • The method most commonly used in clinical practice is the "closed technique", which is similar to standard blood collection techniques. (wikipedia.org)
  • While some nasopharyngeal cancers are biologically similar to the common HNSCC, "poorly differentiated" nasopharyngeal carcinoma is lymphoepithelioma, which is distinct in its epidemiology, biology, clinical behavior, and treatment, and is treated as a separate disease by many experts. (wikipedia.org)
  • organs
  • Transplanted organs are often acquired from a cadaver (usually a host who had succumbed to trauma), whose tissues had already sustained ischemia or inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • recipient
  • Furthermore, should the recipient (for example, type B-positive with a type AB-positive graft) require eventual retransplantation, the recipient may receive a new organ of either blood type. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adult
  • The lymphocytic leukemias are closely related to lymphomas of the lymphocytes, to the point that some of them are unitary disease entities that can be called by either name (for example, adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma). (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • Because of the vectors preference for cherry trees, choke cherry which is a wild growing cherry species is the most common host of the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • body
  • Uveitis is a term used to describe a heterogeneous group of intraocular inflammatory diseases of the anterior, intermediate, and posterior uveal tract (iris, ciliary body, choroid). (essentialevidenceplus.com)
  • common
  • But rhinovirus, the most common respiratory virus, has traditionally been overlooked in this population, said Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center infectious disease specialist Dr. Michael Boeckh. (eurekalert.org)
  • However, the most common host, the apple tree, tends to produce pale yellow irregular spots or bands along the major veins on the leaves as they expand in the spring. (wikipedia.org)
  • the disease is thus becoming relatively more common in adults than children. (wikipedia.org)
  • Choke cherry is the most common reservoir host and a favorite food for the cherry leafhoppers. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dieback of shoot tips is common as the disease progresses. (wikipedia.org)
  • Peaches are the next most common economic fruit host of the X-disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • behavior
  • So far, the researchers have concluded that lineage of the T-cell receptor gene does not predict the behavior of the disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • target
  • Research in bacterial glycomics could lead to the development of: novel drugs bioactive glycans glycoconjugate vaccines The following are examples of the commonly used techniques in glycan analysis The most commonly applied methods are MS and HPLC, in which the glycan part is cleaved either enzymatically or chemically from the target and subjected to analysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • For instance, OHL with HIV/AIDS is a predictor of bad prognosis, (i.e. severe immunosuppression and advanced disease). (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Some of the natural hosts that are commonly targeted by ApMV include apples (Malus domestica), pears (Pyrus communis), apricots (Prunus armeniaca), peach (Prunus persica), plum (Prunus domestica), strawberry (Fragaria sp. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other reservoir hosts include clovers and dandelions. (wikipedia.org)
