IL-17 is argued to play an important role in the multiple sclerosis-like disease experimental autoimmune encephalitis (EAE). We investigated the therapeutic effects of anti-IL-17A in a chronic relapsing EAE ABH mouse model using conventional scoring, quantitative behavioral outcomes, and a novel vascular cell adhesion molecule 1 (VCAM-1)-targeted magnetic(More)
The virulence of Campylobacter jejuni and C. coli isolated from various water sources was compared with that of clinical strains by in vitro assays of adhesion, invasion and cytotoxicity to HeLa cells. Variation in degree of attachment was observed, but this did not appear to be related to strain source, However, water strains were less invasive and less(More)
Extensive animal research has shown that endogenous estrogens and progestins play a vital role in controlling the course of normal pregnancy and fetal development. The balance of the 2 types of hormones must be maintained, a relative excess of deficiency of either being detrimental to the offspring. Information on this topic is presented from a review of(More)
The isolation of stably transfected cell lines suitable for the manufacture of biotherapeutic protein products can be an arduous process relying on the identification of a high expressing clone; this frequently involves transgene amplification and maintenance of the clones' expression over at least 60 generations. Maintenance of expression, or cell line(More)
In the course of a study of the fermentation of certain substituted sugars by bacteria, it was found that alpha-methyl-dglucoside was fermented with the production of acid and gas by several strains of Bacterium aerogenes but not by fecal Bacterium coli. Since the separation of these members of the coli-aerogenes group has assumed some interest, it was(More)
