This work reports the tumoricidal effects of a novel investigational humanized anti-CD19 monoclonal antibody (Medi-551). An a-fucosylated antibody with increased affinity for human FcγRIIIA, Medi-551 is shown to mediate both antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) and antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis (ADCP). Medi-551/CD19 complexes(More)
Sigma B (sigma(B)) is an alternative sigma factor that controls the transcriptional response to stress in Listeria monocytogenes and is also known to play a role in the virulence of this human pathogen. In the present study we investigated the impact of a sigB deletion on the proteome of L. monocytogenes grown in a chemically defined medium both in the(More)
Gamma secretase inhibitors (GSIs) comprise a growing class of compounds that interfere with the membrane-bound Notch signaling protein and its downstream intra-nuclear transcriptional targets. As GSI-I (Z-LLNle-CHO) is also a derivative of a widely used proteosome inhibitor MG-132, we hypothesized that this compound might be active in precursor-B acute(More)
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a food-borne pathogen causing inflammation of the gastrointestinal epithelium. Pathogenic strains of this bacterium possess two Type III Secretion Systems (TTSS) that deliver effector proteins into host cells. In order to better understand human host cell responses to V. parahaemolyticus, the modulation of Mitogen Activated(More)
Irinotecan is one of the camptothecin analog which has been shown to have a broad spectrum of antitumor activities against various malignancies. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of vitamin A, C, E and melatonin on proapoptotic activity of irinotecan in human cancer cells in vitro. We observed that irinotecan induced apoptosis in all types of(More)
Surface-specific antigens expressed by hematopoietic cells are attractive targets for antibody-mediated immunotherapy. Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) involve various mechanisms to eliminate target cells, including antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC)- and phagocytosis (ADCP)-mediated killing through natural killer (NK) and macrophage effector cells(More)
The dynamic development of metal-containing anticancer drugs has started since the discovery of cis-diamminedichloroplatinum(II). For many years it was believed that trans platinum(II) compounds were non-active as antitumour agents because trans-diamminedichloroplatinum is biologically inactive although it binds to DNA and also forms monoadducts and(More)

Combination chemotherapy has become increasingly important as synergistic drugs enable to achieve therapeutic effects at substantially lower doses and limited spectrum of side effects. Irinotecan as a one of the camptothecin analogues has shown a broad spectrum of antitumor activity against various malignancies. It is commonly used in treatment of(More)
Moxetumomab pasudotox is a second-generation recombinant immunotoxin against CD22 on B-cell lineages. Antileukemic activity has been demonstrated in children with chemotherapy-refractory B-cell precursor acute lymphoblastic leukemia (BCP-ALL), with variable responses. Here, we report in vitro and in vivo evaluation of moxetumomab pasudotox treatment of(More)
