Coronary heart disease (CHD) and cancers of the breast, prostate, and colon are more common in industrialized countries than in the developing world, and to some degree, these conditions appear to share risk factors. To investigate whether there is an association between these cancers and a prior history of CHD, a hospital-based case-control study was(More)
Monoclonal antibody anti-4B4 was produced by fusing NS1 myeloma with spleen cells of a mouse immunized with Saguinus oedipus lymphocyte. This anti-4B4 antibody defines a 135-KD cell surface protein that is widely distributed throughout the hematopoietic system. More importantly, anti-4B4 is reactive with functionally unique human T cell subsets. Anti-4B4(More)
The cell surface phenotype of peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients was characterized with the anti-2H4 monoclonal antibody that defines the human suppressor inducer subset. The T4+2H4+ population of cells has been shown to be critical for the activation of T8+ suppressor cells. Patients with SLE has a markedly(More)
A mAb anti-2H1, was produced against PHA-activated T cells from a lower primate, Aotus trivirgatus. Anti-2H1 reacted with 90% of peripheral T cells but was found to react with only 10% of thymocytes and some, but not all, leukemic T cell lines. 2H1 expression was dramatically increased when thymic cells were activated by Con A plus PMA. In contrast,(More)
The T4+ lymphocyte population includes a subset that induces suppressor T lymphocytes (T8+ cells) and can be distinguished by dual-color fluorescence analysis with anti-2H4 and anti-T4 monoclonal antibodies. To investigate the possible role of these cells in multiple sclerosis, we used anti-2H4 antibody to characterize peripheral-blood lymphocyte subsets in(More)
The glucose concentration in growth medium has been shown to regulate the number of sodium-coupled glucose transporters in LLC-PK1 epithelial cells. Epithelia grown in high concentrations of glucose express fewer transporters than epithelia grown in low concentrations of glucose. In the present work, the effect of a dose of ionizing radiation sufficient to(More)
BACKGROUND This study was performed to determine whether antibodies against the amino-terminus of the beta-chain of fibrin (anti-beta) could noninvasively distinguish actively enlarging thrombi from thrombi stabilized with anticoagulants. METHODS AND RESULTS Dogs with unilateral femoral vein thrombi were allocated into three groups: (1) no(More)
UNLABELLED Accurate non-invasive diagnosis of deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism remains an elusive goal. Radiolabeled antibodies specific for the epitope exposed on the beta-chain of fibrin after fibrino-peptide B release (anti-beta) enabled in situ imaging of thrombi in experimental subjects with nuclear medicine techniques. When used in(More)
We have investigated the role of complement, leukocytes, and histamine in the delayed phase of hematoporphyrin-induced phototoxicity in guinea pigs. The phototoxic response was quantified by the accumulation of intravenously injected [125I]bovine serum albumin in the skin. There was a greater than 6-fold increase in the vascular response at the completion(More)
