Genetically engineered expression of tumor-specific single chain antibody chimeric receptors (ch-Rec) on human T lymphocytes endow these cells with the parental monoclonal antibody (mAb) dictated tumor specificity and may be useful for clinical immuno-genetherapy. Therefore it was of importance to assess how the densities of tumor-specific receptors and(More)
The clinical benefit of adoptive transfer of MHC-restricted cytotoxic T lymphocytes(CTL) for the treatment of cancer is hampered by the low success rate to generate antitumor CTLs. To bypass the need for tumor-specific CTL, we developed a strategy that allows for grafting of human T lymphocytes with MHC-restricted antigen specificity using in vitro selected(More)
Genetic engineering of T lymphocytes for adoptive clinical immunotherapy calls for efficient gene transduction methods. Therefore, a transient retroviral gene transduction system 'STITCH' was developed comprising pSTITCH retroviral vector encoding the transgene, plasmids encoding Moloney murine leukemia virus gag/pol and gibbon ape leukemia virus envelope,(More)
We offer a new solution to the unsolved problem of how infants break into word learning based on the visual statistics of everyday infant-perspective scenes. Images from head camera video captured by 8 1/2 to 10 1/2 month-old infants at 147 at-home mealtime events were analysed for the objects in view. The images were found to be highly cluttered with many(More)
The mechanisms involved in anthelmintic resistance (AR) are complex but a greater understanding of AR management is essential for effective and sustainable control of parasitic helminth worms in livestock. Current tests to measure AR are time consuming and can be technically problematic, gold standard diagnostics are therefore urgently required to assist in(More)
Anthelmintics in the absence of vaccines have underpinned a parasite control strategy for over 50 years. However, the continued development of anthelmintic resistance (AR) threatens this control. Measuring early AR is difficult as there many routes that resistance can arise from within multi-nematode populations operating complex metabolism capabilities(More)
