A panel of novel mouse monoclonal antibodies was used, in an indirect immunofluorescence procedure, to identify subsets of guinea pig lymphoid cells which were quantified by flow cytometric analysis. The staining characteristics of the antibodies were also examined by alkaline phosphatase-anti-alkaline phosphatase staining of cryostat sections of spleen and(More)
Inflammation is an essential protective biological response involving a coordinated cascade of signals between cytokines and immune signaling molecules that facilitate return to tissue homeostasis after acute injury or infection. However, inflammation is not effectively resolved in chronic inflammatory diseases such as atherosclerosis and can lead to tissue(More)
Rats were immunized systemically with sheep red blood cells (SRBC) and given either FK-506 (1 mg/kg) or drug vehicle by i.m. injection for 7 days. In animals receiving FK-506, there was suppression (87%) of the splenic plaque-forming cell response on day 4 and marked reductions in the serum antibody titre throughout the 3-week period following immunization.(More)
The effect of feed restriction on gene expression of regulatory enzymes of intermediary metabolism was studied in two sheep breeds (Australian Merino and Dorper) subjected to two nutritional treatments: feed restriction (85% of daily maintenance requirements) and control (ad libitum feeding), during 42 days. The experimental animals (ram lambs) were divided(More)
The immunosuppressive activity and comparative efficacy of rapamycin (RAPA), FK 506 and cyclosporine A (CsA) were investigated in rats following immunization with either xenogeneic sheep red blood cells (SRBC) or allogeneic blood transfusion. RAPA formulated in a polyethylene glycol vehicle, and at a dose of 1.5 mg.kg-1 i.p., was relatively ineffective when(More)
Factors important in the resolution of cell sub-populations with differing DNA contents were investigated using an EPICS C flow cytometer. Software is available for the EPICS C which permits data from any two histograms to be superimposed or added together before display. Samples of fresh and archival thyroid tissue, stained with propidium iodide, were(More)
Administration of cyclophosphamide to Sprague-Dawley rats 2 days before immunization with ovalbumin in complete Freund's adjuvant resulted in a striking blood, bone marrow, and tissue eosinophilia. The number of circulating eosinophils reached a maximum (50-fold increase above normal) 2 weeks after immunization, and eosinophils were also prominent in bone(More)
