Antibodies confer humoral immunity but can also be harmful when they target an autoantigen, alloantigen, allergen, or biotherapeutic. New strategies are needed for antigen-specific suppression of undesired antibody responses, particularly to T cell-dependent protein antigens, because they elicit T cell help. Here we show that liposomal nanoparticles,(More)
The purpose of the study was to identify predictors of long-term survival in metastatic breast cancer (MBC). A cohort of 96 patients, who received high-dose chemotherapy with autologous stem cell support (HD-ASCT) as part of their treatment, was analyzed. Percent long-term survival at 10 years was 24.5% (CI 17.2-34.9%) when metastasis was diagnosed and(More)
Activated superFactor V (superFVa) is a novel engineered FV with excellent prohemostatic efficacy. SuperFVa has three APC cleavage site mutations and an interdomain disulfide bond. Stability, pharmacokinetics, and immunogenic and thrombogenic potential are reported here. Stability and circulating half-life were determined after incubation in buffer and(More)
Background. The etiology of the high prevalence of hypertension among patients with hemophilia (PWH) remains unknown. Methods. We compared 469 PWH in the United States with males from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to determine whether differences in cardiovascular risk factors can account for the hypertension in hemophilia.(More)
OBJECTIVE An increased risk of bleeding is observed in patients receiving activated protein C (APC), which may be a limiting factor for the application of novel APC therapies. Since APC's therapeutic effects often require its cytoprotective activities on cells but not APC's anticoagulant activities, an agent that specifically antagonizes APC's anticoagulant(More)
