Our previous experiments have shown that adult male Wistar rats can differ systematically in elevated plus-maze (EPM) behaviour, which was related to the neurotransmitter serotonin in the ventral striatum. The EPM serves as a model of anxiety-like behaviour, and there is evidence that interleukin (IL)-2 in the brain may be related to anxiety-like behaviour,… (More)
There is evidence that interleukin (IL)-2 may be related to anxiety as measured in the elevated plus-maze. Recently, we showed that normal adult male Wistar rats can differ systematically in this test of avoidance behavior, that is, time spent on the open arms of the elevated plus-maze. Rats with low open arm time had higher striatal levels of IL-2 mRNA… (More)
This prospective, multicenter, single-arm, open-label Phase III study aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Privigen(®) (10% liquid human intravenous immunoglobulin [IVIG], stabilized with L-proline) in patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP). Patients received one induction dose of Privigen (2 g/kg body weight [bw])… (More)
BACKGROUND In addition to their antimicrobial activity, antibiotics modulate cellular host defence. Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) is also a well known immunomodulator; however little is known about the interactions of G-CSF with antibiotics. We investigated in septic rats the effects of two antibiotic combinations with G-CSF. METHODS In… (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 . It is thought that IgA and IgM are physiologically important for protecting the mucosal… (More)
