Antigens encoded by MAGE-A3 and recognized by T cells are interesting targets for tumor immunotherapy because they are strictly tumor specific and shared by many tumors of various histological types. A number of MAGE-A3 antigenic peptides presented by HLA class I molecules have been used in clinical trials, and regressions of melanoma metastasis have been(More)
S-100 protein was determined by Particle Counting ImmunoAssay in the CSF of patients with various neurological disorders. With a limit of sensitivity of 2.5 micrograms/l this brain-specific protein was detected only in samples from patients with acute damage of the central nervous system, particularly in compression of the spinal cord by tumour, ischaemic(More)
By means of a new technique (Particle Counting Immunoassay), we have determined the level of ferritin in 470 samples of cerebrospinal fluid of patients with various neurological disorders. The median value obtained in a control group was 2.3 ng/ml with an upper limit at 5.5 ng/ml. the concentrations in the serum and cerebrospinal fluid were independent, but(More)
Antigens encoded by MAGE genes and recognized by T cells are of interest for cancer immunotherapy because of their strict tumoral specificity and because they are shared by many tumors. Several MAGE-1 peptide that are recognized by CD8(+) cytolytic T lymphocytes have been used in therapeutic vaccination trials. To obtain anti-tumor immune response, vaccines(More)
The level of IgM was determined by Particle Counting Immunoassay in the cerebrospinal fluid. In non-neurological patients (N = 20) the mean was 97.5 micrograms/l with the upper reference limit at 380 micrograms/l. The mean IgM index was 0.021 with the upper reference limit at 0.071. Of 21 patients with stroke, 5 had an IgM index exceeding the reference(More)
IgG was extracted from sections of a multiple sclerosis brain by repeated washing with phosphate-buffered saline. After this extraction, no IgG was recovered by further washing at pH 2.2. This indicates that the IgG of the plaques has no strong affinity for insoluble constituents of the brain. Section of a subacute sclerosing panencephalitis brain were used(More)
We assayed immune complexes (IC) by Particle Counting ImmunoAssay in the serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with various neurological disorders. In pyogenic meningitis, the levels of IC sharply increased 4-8 days after onset with a fall before the 10th day of the disease. In herpetic encephalitis the IC and antibody levels started to increase(More)
