The human CD30 receptor is highly overexpressed on the surface of Hodgkin Reed-Sternberg cells and has been shown to be an excellent target for selective immunotherapy using monoclonal antibody-based agents such as immunotoxins. To construct a new recombinant immunotoxin for possible clinical use in patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma, we have chosen the(More)
Paralytic tremor (pt) in rabbits and shaking pup (shp) in dogs are allelic dysmyelinated mutants of the proteolipid protein (Plp) gene. Both mutations affect the same amino acid, histidine36, which is replaced by glutamine in pt and by proline in shp. Phenotypic expression of these two mutations is very different. Paralytic tremor presents a much milder(More)
In various clinical studies, Hodgkin's patients have been treated with anti-CD30 immunotherapeutic agents and have shown promising responses. One of the problems that appeared from these studies is the development of an immune response against the nonhuman therapeutics, which limits repeated administration and reduces efficacy. We have set out to make a(More)
