We have examined the biological properties of CEA6, a human carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)-specific single-chain Fv (scFv) isolated by phage display, and five related clones derived by affinity maturation and selected for improved off-rate (Koff). All clones bind strongly and specifically to CEA-positive human tumours by immunocytochemistry and show(More)
Humans and higher primates are unique in that they lack uricase, the enzyme capable of oxidizing uric acid. As a consequence of this enzyme deficiency, humans have high serum uric acid levels. In some people, uric acid levels rise above the solubility limit resulting in crystallization in joints, acute inflammation in response to those crystals causes(More)
