These findings were consistent with an important role of [T.sub.reg] cells in inducing strong GVT effects and mild GVH effects in HSCT + TT [27].
Endoscopic modalities including endoscopic injection of N-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate (GVO) and band ligation (GVL) have been successful for treating GVH in many clinical centers owing to the availability and relative effectiveness of these methods [8, 9].
Indeed, his reputation traversed several villages to reach the compound in which I was living in the area of a different GVH. Catherine's latest difficulties with Mayeso surprised nobody there.

The G band was attributed to an in-plane [E.sub.2g] zone-center mode, and the D and D' bands were ascribed to disorder-induced modes in the PVA-MWCNTs [26, 27], Generally, the degree of MWCNTs' alignment could be evaluated by the ratio of the intensities of G bands in the two polarization directions, GVv/ GvH, which was known as depolarization factor R [28-31].
