Leptin in human pregnancy: the relationship with gestational hormones.
OBJECTIVES The aims of the study were (1) to examine the relationship between leptin and placental hormones by measuring serial changes in serum levels of leptin during and after pregnancy and (2) toExpand

Identification of 9-O acetyl sialoglycoconjugates (9-OAcSGs) as biomarkers in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia using a lectin, AchatininH, as a probe
Neoplastic transformation causes changes in cell surface architecture, most notably, aberrant sialylation. Exploiting the restricted specificity of a 9-O acetyl sialic acid (9-OAcSA) binding lectin,Expand

Investigation of 9‐o‐acetylated sialoglycoconjugates in childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia
Modern treatment protocols of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) utilize the biological and clinical features of the disease to tailor the intensity of therapy to the risk of relapse byExpand

Development of a simple, blood based lymphoproliferation assay to assess the clinical status of patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Although childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is highly responsive to chemotherapy, reliable techniques are needed to determine treatment outcome and predict relapse. Employing a 9-O-acetylExpand

A novel method for prognostic evaluation of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia
Although childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) is highly responsive to chemotherapy, patients in remission may harbor residual leukemic blasts, the cause of disease persistence andExpand

A colorimetric assay to evaluate the chemotherapeutic response of children with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) employing achatininH: a 9-O-acetyl sialic acid binding lectin.
Employing a 9-O-acetyl sialic acid binding lectin, Achatinin(H) (ATNH), we have reported a non-invasive, blood based lymphoproliferation assay which measures the maximal lymphoproliferative doseExpand

O-acetyl sialic acid binding lectin as a probe for detection of subtle change on cell surface induced during acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and its clinical application.
A novel probe, a 9-O-acetylated sialic acid binding lectin, namely achatininH (ATNH) has been used for the detection of changes on the cell surface during acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). ATNHExpand

Investigation on interaction of Achatinin, a 9-O-acetyl sialic acid-binding lectin, with lipopolysaccharide in the innate immunity of Achatina fulica snails.
Achatinin, a 9-O-acetyl sialic acid (9-O-AcSA) binding lectin, has been demonstrated to be synthesized in amoebocytes of Achatina fulica snails. This lectin was affinity-purified from AchatinaExpand

Adenovirus-mediated gene therapy using human p21WAF-1/Cip-1 to prevent wound healing in a rabbit model of glaucoma filtration surgery.
OBJECTIVE To determine if adenovirus-mediated p21(WAF-1/Cip-1) (p21) gene therapy can prevent fibroproliferation and wound healing in a rabbit model of glaucoma filtration surgery. METHODS In vitroExpand
