We optimized the novel technique of multielectrode neurochip recordings for the rapid and efficient screening of neuroactivity. Changes in the spontaneous activity of cultured networks of primary cortical neurons were quantified to evaluate the action of drugs on the firing dynamics of complex network activity. The multiparametric assessment of electrical(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Pharmacokinetics, safety and tolerability of escalating infusion rates of BT090, a 10% intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg), were studied in patients with primary immunodeficiency disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS In Part A, patients (n = 30) received 3 infusions of BT090 at their pretrial dose and dosing interval; the infusion rate of(More)
To the Editor, In the majority of primary antibody deficiency (PAD) patients receiving IgG replacement therapy (IgGRT), the risk of serious infections is reduced; however, a significant proportion continue to have upper and lower respiratory tract infections [1]. It is thought that IgA and IgM are physiologically important for protecting the mucosal(More)
INTRODUCTION Severe community-acquired pneumonia is defined as community-acquired pneumonia that requires intensive medical care. Mortality in these patients is still high depending on time and admission. Since bad outcomes may occur despite antibiotic therapy to treat severe community-acquired pneumonia, the focus has shifted to targeting the host(More)
BACKGROUND Subcutaneous administration of hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIg) is effective in preventing hepatitis B virus (HBV) recurrence after liver transplantation, but early conversion to subcutaneous administration is undocumented. METHODS In a prospective study, patients transplanted for terminal liver disease due to HBV infection who were HBV(More)
BACKGROUND Subcutaneous self-administration of hepatitis B immunoglobulin (HBIg) prophylaxis is preferred by patients, but compliance with the assigned regimen in routine practice is undocumented. MATERIAL AND METHODS A prospective, observational, 18-week, open-label, single-arm, multicenter study assessed compliance and tolerability in maintenance liver(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to assess the efficacy and safety of subcutaneously (SC) and intramuscularly (IM) administered BT088 (Fovepta) human hepatitis B immunoglobulin in neonates of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBs/HBsAg)-positive mothers in the prevention of hepatitis B infection. METHODS This was an open, prospective, multicenter(More)
