Bispecific antibodies have been extensively studied in vitro and in vivo for their use in redirected tumor cell lysis. A particular challenge of bispecific antibody constructs that recognize the invariant CD3 signaling complex is a controlled polyclonal activation of T cells that, ideally, is exquisitely dependent on the presence of target cells. Otherwise,(More)
BACKGROUND In 1999, the UK government initiated a programme for the assessment and treatment of individuals deemed to have 'dangerous and severe personality disorder' (DSPD). After over 10 years of specialist service development, it is not clear whether DSPD patients represent a distinct group. AIMS The aim of this study was to establish whether people(More)
Contingent negative variation and evoked potentials to visual erotic stimuli were recorded from 8 brain sites in a sample of 62 right-handed men aged 20-50, half of whom declared paraphilic interests and half claimed "normal" heterosexual interests. To quantify erotic preferences, a "variance quotient" (VQ) was calculated from scores on the Wilson Sex(More)
Epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) is frequently and highly expressed on human carcinomas. The emerging role of EpCAM as a signalling receptor and activator of the wnt pathway, and its expression on tumor-initiating cells, further add to its attractiveness as target for immunotherapy of cancer. Thus far, five conventional monoclonal IgG antibodies(More)
Impulsiveness in personality disordered forensic patients is associated with poor treatment completion and high risk of re-offending. A biofeedback training protocol, previously found to reduce impulsiveness and improve attention in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, was used in an initial attempt to reduce impulsiveness in a severely(More)
Early-onset alcohol abuse (EOAA) was previously found to both mediate and moderate the effect of childhood conduct disorder (CD) on adult antisocial behavior (ASB) in an American community sample of young adults (Howard, R., Finn, P. R., Gallagher, J., & Jose, P. (2011). Adolescent-onset alcohol abuse exacerbates the influence of childhood conduct disorder(More)
NKG2D is a surface receptor expressed on NK cells but also on CD8(+) T cells, gammadelta T cells, and auto-reactive CD4(+)/CD28(-) T cells of patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Various studies suggested that NKG2D plays a critical role in autoimmune diseases, e.g., in diabetes, celiac disease and rheumatoid arthritis (RA), rendering the activating receptor(More)
Inhibition of the interleukin-2 (IL-2) pathway has potent immunosuppressive activity in humans as is evident from the broad therapeutic utility of cyclosporine, rapamycin, tacrolimus, and monoclonal antibodies blocking the high-affinity subunit of the IL-2 receptor (CD25). Here we describe a humanized antibody, MT204, interfering with IL-2 signaling by a(More)
