BACKGROUND Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) comprises primarily the two disorders - ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease - that involve deregulated T cell responses. The ever-increasing incidence rate of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis during recent decades, combined with the limited efficacy and potential adverse effects of current treatments,(More)
Both NK cells and CTLs kill virus-infected and tumor cells. However, the ways by which these killer cells recognize the infected or the tumorigenic cells are different, in fact almost opposite. CTLs are activated through the interaction of the TCR with MHC class I proteins. In contrast, NK cells are inhibited by MHC class I molecules. The inhibitory NK(More)
Designing a chimeric protein and developing a procedure for its stable production as a biologically active protein, are key steps in its potential application to clinical trails. IL2-Caspase3 chimeric protein designed to target activated T lymphocytes was found to be a promising molecule for targeted treatment, however was found to be difficult to produce(More)
Since early diagnosis of many types of cancer greatly improves the chances for successful treatment, high-quality methods for cancer detection are necessary. Our laboratory develops chimeric proteins for targeted therapy, such as gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH)-based chimeric proteins for the targeted therapy of adenocarcinomas in humans. For chimeric(More)
One of the main problems of conventional anticancer therapy is multidrug resistance (MDR), whereby cells acquire resistance to structurally and functionally unrelated drugs following chemotherapeutic treatment. One of the main causes of MDR is overexpression of the P-glycoprotein transporter. In addition to extruding the chemotherapeutic drugs, it also(More)
