A human anti-RhD immunoglobulin G1 monoclonal antibody (mAb), R297, was tested in a phase I study to assess its ability to induce the clearance of antibody-coated autologous RhD+ red blood cells (RBCs) in healthy male volunteers. The clearance potency of R297 was compared with that of a marketed human polyclonal anti-D product (Rhophylac). This mAb has been(More)
Thrombus formation was electrically induced in the left common carotid artery of rats with preoccluded both vertebral and right carotid arteries. Following thrombus induction, animals became unresponsive and lost their righting reflex. The loss of righting reflex was observed when cortical tissular pO2 reached 55 +/- 9% of its initial value. A similar(More)
The activity of nafazatrom and molsidomine, two antithrombotic drugs claimed to increase prostacycline level, was investigated in an electrically-induced carotid thrombosis model in the conscious rat. Both nafazatrom (5 mg/kg, i.v.) and molsidomine significantly delayed thrombus formation, an activity that was shared by prostacyclin (100 ng/kg/min, i.v.).(More)
