Genetic crosses produced NOD/LtSz mice doubly homozygous for the severe combined immunodeficiency (scid) mutation and the beta2m (B2m) null allele. Both NOD/LtSz-scid/scid and NOD/LtSz-scid/scid B2m(null) mice lacked mature lymphocytes and serum Ig. However, homozygosity for the B2m(null) allele also resulted in the absence of MHC class I expression, loss(More)
Development of a small animal model for the in vivo study of human immunity and infectious disease remains an important goal, particularly for investigations of HIV vaccine development. NOD/Lt mice homozygous for the severe combined immunodeficiency (Prkdcscid) mutation readily support engraftment with high levels of human hematolymphoid cells. However,(More)

Human PBMC engraft in mice homozygous for the severe combined immunodeficiency (Prkdcscid) mutation (Hu-PBL-scid mice). Hu-PBL-NOD-scid mice generate 5- to 10-fold higher levels of human cells than do Hu-PBL-C.B-17-scid mice, and Hu-PBL-NOD-scid beta2-microglobulin-null (NOD-scid-B2mnull) mice support even higher levels of engraftment, particularly CD4+ T(More)
Antibodies to the ligand for CD40 (CD154) have been shown to exert profound effects on the development of cell-mediated immune responses in mice. The present study shows that an antibody to human CD154 (hCD40L) inhibits in vivo Tetanus toxoid (TT) specific secondary antibody responses in hu-PBL-scid mice, as well as the expansion of xenoreactive human T(More)
