Antibovine thyroid ganglioside antibodies developed in rabbits inhibit thyrotrophin binding to human thyroid plasma membranes. These antibodies are specific for gangliosides as was shown by the liposome agglutination technique. Antiganglioside antibodies did not stimulate basal adenyl cyclase activity in bovine thyroid plasma membranes, but most(More)
Antibodies that reacted with plasma membranes of human eye muscle but showed no binding to plasma membranes of human skeletal muscle were identified in serum of patients with Graves' ophthalmopathy. Rabbit antithyroglobulin serum at a dilution of 1 X 10(-3) to 20 X 10(-3) had no effect on the binding of these antibodies to eye muscle membrane antigens.(More)
Background Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) is a devastating disease with a median survival of only about two years even in the 20% of patients that present early enough to be eligible for surgical resection and adjuvant chemotherapy. With this urgent medical need in mind, we are exploring the use of adoptive T cell transfer in patients with PDAC, as(More)
PURPOSE The devastating prognosis of patients with resectable pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA) presents an urgent need for the development of therapeutic strategies targeting disseminated tumor cells. Until now, T-cell therapy has been scarcely pursued in PDA, due to the prevailing view that it represents a poorly immunogenic tumor. EXPERIMENTAL(More)
The ability of protein A from Staphylococcus aureus to interact with Fc fragments of IgG was used to estimate the antithyroid plasma membrane antibodies in sera of patients with Graves' disease. The results were expressed as an antithyroid plasma membrane antibodies (ATMA) index. The ATMA index estimated in 60 healthy blood donors varied from 0.57 to 1.28,(More)
BACKGROUND The authors present the results of investigation of liver regeneration after partial parenchyma resection. MATERIAL AND METHODS 20 patients (16 females, 4 male) aged 31-67 years were operated on because of metastatic colon cancer (7 cases), cavernous hemangioma (6 cases), hepatocellular carcinoma (1), alveococcosis (2), metastases of malignant(More)
