In this report, we extend our previous findings that IgG or F(ab')2 fragments of HD37 anti-CD19 antibody (Ab) in combination with the immunotoxin (IT), RFB4-anti-CD22-deglycosylated ricin A chain (dgA) (but neither reagent alone), prolonged the survival of SCID mice with disseminated human Daudi lymphoma (SCID/Daudi mice) to 1 year at which time they still(More)
Her-2 (p185 erbB-2) is a transmembrane tyrosine kinase receptor, which is encoded by the Her-2/neu proto-oncogene. Her-2 is overexpressed on 30% of highly malignant breast cancers. Monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) against Her-2 inhibit the growth of Her-2-overexpressing tumor cells and this occurs by a variety of mechanisms. One such MAb, Herceptin(More)
We have previously demonstrated that an anti-CD19 monoclonal antibody (MAb; HD37) inhibits the function of the P-glycoprotein (P-gp) pump in a multidrug-resistant (MDR) B-lymphoma cell line, Namalwa/MDR1, and that this effect is not due to the recognition of a cross-reactive epitope on P-gp. In this study, we have used the same cell line to define the(More)
Immunoconjugates (ICs) consist of a targeting moiety and a toxic moiety and have the specificity that traditional cancer therapy lacks. At appropriate doses, ICs are safe and effective in treating various cancers in experimental animals and in humans. However, because cures are rarely achieved using single agents, regimens involving combinations of agents(More)
Automatic control systems with sophisticated control algorithm can be very large and complex. In order to improve the automatic process control, it is important to develop fault diagnosis strategy. A hierarchical scheme of fault detection and isolation based on Decision Support System (DSS) is presented. For fault diagnosis, a knowledge based procedure is(More)
