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)
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)
Polysorbate 80 is one of the key components of protein formulations. It primarily inhibits interfacial damage of the protein molecule due to mechanical stress during shipping and handling. However, polysorbate 80 also affects the formulation photostability. Exposure to light of polysorbate 80 aqueous solution results in peroxide generation, which in turn(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)
PURPOSE The oncofetal antigen, human chorionic gonadotropin beta subunit (hCGbeta), is expressed by a number of carcinomas and is a prognostic indicator in renal, colorectal, bladder, and pancreatic cancers. We describe the development of a novel antibody-based dendritic cell (DC)-targeted cancer vaccine capable of eliciting cellular immune responses(More)
Targeting recycling endocytic receptors with specific Abs provides a means for introducing a variety of tumor-associated Ags into human dendritic cells (DCs), culminating in their efficient presentation to T cells. We have generated a human mAb (B11) against the mannose receptor that is rapidly internalized by DCs through receptor-mediated endocytosis. By(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)
This study demonstrates that arginine is a highly effective solvent additive which significantly reduces the light induced aggregation of four IgG1 type monoclonal antibodies (named as IMC-1A, IMC-1B, IMC-1C and IMC-1D) as measured by size exclusion chromatography. All experiments were performed in a phosphate buffer system containing either sodium chloride(More)
Research has focused on changes in the psychiatric treatment of youth in outpatient settings, but less is known about trends in inpatient care. This study documents changes in the lengths of stay (LOS), clinical profiles of youth, and medication use within an inpatient setting in Massachusetts between 1991 and 2008. A chart review of 233 medical records of(More)
