 A major challenge for using native and modified T cell epitopes to induce or suppress immunity relates to achieving efficient uptake and processing by antigen-presenting cells (APC) in vivo. IgG Fc receptors, which are expressed constitutively by professional APC including monocytes and dendritic cells, have long been known to mediate antigen uptake in a(More)
Rabbit polyclonal antibodies were raised against synthetic peptides corresponding to hydrophilic regions of the human Rhesus (Rh) IX cDNA-encoded polypeptide predicted to be extracellularly or intracellularly exposed in the topologic model of the Rh blood group protein. Four antibodies encompassing residues 33-45 (MPC1), 224-233 (MPC4), 390-404 (MPC6), and(More)
Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGF-R) overexpression is common in a large number of solid tumors and represents a negative prognostic indicator. Overexpression of EGF-R is strongly tumor associated, and this tyrosine kinase type receptor is considered an attractive target for Ab therapy. In this study, we describe the evaluation of mAb 2F8, a high(More)
BACKGROUND This is a review of the clinical use, cariostatic mechanism, efficacy, safety and toxicity of fluoride varnishes. TYPES OF STUDIES REVIEWED The authors reviewed and summarized in vitro, in vivo and in situ studies; clinical trials; demonstration programs; position papers; and editorials published in English in the biomedical literature since(More)
The neutralizing antibody response to the protective antigen (PA) component of anthrax toxin elicited by approved anthrax vaccines is an accepted correlate for vaccine-mediated protection against anthrax. We reasoned that a human anti-PA monoclonal antibody (MAb) selected on the basis of superior toxin neutralization activity might provide potent protection(More)
Polysorbate 80 is widely used in protein formulations to protect protein against agitation-induced aggregation. In this study, we address concerns about residual peroxide present in Polysorbate 80 on protein stability. Residual peroxide may oxidize active pharmaceutical ingredients leading to reduced stability and may ultimately lead to lower potency and(More)
The strategy for a comparability assessment is developed on a hierarchical risk-based approach. Critical analysis of physicochemical and biological characterization assays is essential for the development of a good comparability protocol. Therefore, selection and sensitivity of these assays is very important. This article discusses a case study to evaluate(More)
Human erythroleukemic K562 cells are known to have several erythroid properties. K562 cells possess Rh mRNAs, but expression of Rh proteins has not previously been reported. We immunoprecipitated Rh protein from K562 cell lysate using rabbit anti-Rh and detected Rh(D) antigens on K562 cells using fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS). These results(More)
