A humanized antihuman IgE antibody, rhuMAb-E25, was designed to form complexes with free IgE, blocking its interaction with mast cells and basophils and thereby preventing the initiation of the allergic cascade. To characterize the rhuMAb-E25: IgE complexes formed in vivo and to examine the disposition of the antibody in a relevant animal model,(More)
Subcutaneous (SC) delivery is a common route of administration for therapeutic monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) with pharmacokinetic (PK)/pharmacodynamic (PD) properties requiring long-term or frequent drug administration. An ideal in vivo preclinical model for predicting human PK following SC administration may be one in which the skin and overall(More)
Intravenous administration of a humanized monoclonal antibody of IgE (E25) attenuates the early and late phase response to inhaled allergen in allergic asthmatic subjects. To test whether direct delivery of E25 to the airway might have the same effect, we conducted a randomized, double-blind, three group study in 33 subjects with mild allergic asthma (20 to(More)
BACKGROUND The standard safety evaluation of biotherapeutics includes assessment of immunogenicity. Anti-therapeutic antibodies (ATA) can be detected in serum using immunoassays with a bridging format. However, these assays can be subject to interference. RESULTS In the bridging ATA assay for 3A5 TDC, an antibody-drug conjugate that binds to the(More)
PURPOSE Interaction of human IgE with its high affinity receptor (Fc epsilon RI) on mast cells and basophils is an important step for initiating IgE mediated immune responses. To characterize the IgE and Fc epsilon RI interaction, we investigated this interaction in terms of stoichiometry and binding affinity in solution. The binding of IgE and IgE Fc(More)
PURPOSE Although agents targeting Delta-like ligand 4 (DLL4) have shown great promise for angiogenesis-based cancer therapy, findings in recent studies have raised serious safety concerns. To further evaluate the potential for therapeutic targeting of the DLL4 pathway, we pursued a novel strategy to reduce toxicities related to DLL4 inhibition by modulating(More)
Anti-therapeutic antibodies (ATAs) may impact drug exposure and activity and induce immune complex mediated toxicity; therefore the accurate measurement of ATA is important for the analysis of drug safety and efficacy. Preexisting ATAs to the hinge region of anti-Delta like ligand 4 (anti-DLL4) F(ab')2, a potential antitumor therapeutic, were detected in(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare length of follow-up and cleft site dental management on bone graft ratings from two centers. DESIGN Blind retrospective analysis of cleft site radiographs and chart reviews for determination of cleft-site lateral incisor management. PATIENTS A total of 78 consecutively grafted patients with complete clefts from two major(More)
We characterized 549 new human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I and class II alleles found in newly registered stem cell donors as a result of high-throughput HLA typing. New alleles include 101 HLA-A, 132 HLA-B, 105 HLA-C, 2 HLA-DRB1, 89 HLA-DQB1 and 120 HLA-DPB1 alleles. Mainly, new alleles comprised single nucleotide variations when compared with(More)
PD-L1 expressed in the tumor microenvironment regulates Th1 immune responses and mediates cancer immune evasion through interactions with PD-1 or B7.1 receptors on activated T cells. MPDL3280A, an engineered human monoclonal antibody, targets PD-L1 and inhibits its function. To identify immunologic predictive and pharmacodynamic biomarkers of MPDL3280A(More)
