BACKGROUND/AIM Proinflammatory cytokines are key factors in the pathogenesis of Crohn's disease (CD). Activation of nuclear factor kappa B (NFkappaB), which is involved in their gene transcription, is increased in the intestinal mucosa of CD patients. As butyrate enemas may be beneficial in treating colonic inflammation, we investigated if butyrate promotes(More)
Peripheral blood leukocytes (PBL), nonadherent lymphocytes, and adherent monocytes separated from freshly isolated blood of 15 dogs were analyzed for their ability to mediate antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) in combination with murine anti-tumor monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). Canine monocytes isolated from most donors by adherence to(More)
1. Antigen, gene and haplotype frequencies are important data for population analysis, paternity exclusion testing, genetic studies, and for organ transplantation selection. 2. We have studied the Class I histocompatibility antigens of 617 unrelated individuals from the city of São Paulo, Brazil, to determine antigen and gene frequencies of 16 HLA-A and 28(More)
The effect of murine anti-canine lymphoma monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) on tumor cell lysis by thioglycolate activated murine macrophages in vitro and tumor growth inhibition in athymic mice was studied. All IgG1 and IgG2a MAbs tested were able to promote specific destruction of canine lymphoma 17-71 cell line by activated macrophages. A correlation between(More)
