BACKGROUND: Although thrombocytopenia, anasarca, fever, reticulin fibrosis, and organomegaly (TAFRO) syndrome was first described as a variant of idiopathic multicentric Castleman disease, patients with TAFRO syndrome have more aggressive clinical features. Because these patients may present with fever of unknown origin, general physicians need to recognize its characteristic laboratory data and clinical features during hospitalization. AIMS: Herein, we described the features, symptoms, and char...

: Augmentation of natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity is one of the greatest challenges for cancer immunotherapy. Although histidine-rich glycoprotein (HRG), a 75-kDa glycoprotein with various immunomodulatory activities, reportedly elicits antitumor immunity, its effect on NK cell cytotoxicity is unclear. We assessed NK cell cytotoxicity against K562 cells. We also measured concentrations of cytokines and granzyme B in the cell supernatant. The proportion of CD56bright NK cells and NK cell su...
