In addition, two T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia cell lines and samples from 9 patients with severe myeloid leukemia and from 6 patients with acute lymphocytic leukemia were screened, and no STAT3 mutations were found. Likewise, CD8+ cells from 6 patients with reactive large granular lymphocytosis during tyrosine kinase inhibitor therapy,8 along with from 2 sufferers with cytomegalovirus illness and from 1 individual with graft-versus-host disease, had been studied and found to be negative for STAT3 mutations. STAT3 mutations were found only in the T-cell fraction, whereas NK-cell and B-cell fractions showed wild-type STAT3 .The authors of the study say the biological co-factor induced by malaria has contributed considerably to the spread of HIV and fueled a growth in adult malaria disease rates.
