IRX is a text retrieval system designed to be a testbed for conducting information retrieval research on statistically-based retrieval strategies in either batch or interactive modes. The modular structure of IRX has permitted major changes in components of the system (e.g., ranking algorithms, parsers, interfaces; without redesign. As an interactive system(More)
We have examined the role of interleukin (IL) 2 in the expression of cytotoxic cell proteinases (CCP) 1 and 2, as well as in the induction of major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-unrestricted cytotoxic activity in murine T cell cultures following stimulation with anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody. A dramatic reduction in CCP-1 and CCP-2 gene expression and(More)
We have investigated the effect of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and interleukin (IL)-10 on granzyme B expression and the induction of major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-unrestricted cytotoxic activity in mouse T cell cultures following activation with anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody (mAb). First, metabolic inhibitors of granule-dependent and(More)
We have investigated the role of interleukin-6 (IL-6) in the induction of major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-unrestricted cytotoxicity, as well as granzyme B, perforin, and Fas ligand gene expression, following mouse T lymphocyte activation with anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody (mAb). The generation of anti-CD3-activated killer-T (AK-T) cells was inhibited(More)
It is generally believed that cyclosporin A (CsA) inhibits T-cell activation largely by blocking interleukin (IL)-2 production, although CsA also inhibits the secretion of other growth-promoting lymphokines. To investigate the importance of downregulated synthesis of IL-4 and interferon (IFN)-gamma, in addition to IL-2, in CsA-mediated inhibition of(More)
Polyclonal T lymphocyte populations can be stimulated with anti-CD3 antibody to proliferate, secrete cytokines, and mediate MHC-unrestricted cytotoxic activity against a wide range of tumor target cells. Because anti-CD3-activated killer-T (AK-T) cells may be useful in the immunotherapy of human cancers, it is important to understand the signaling pathways(More)
