A phase I clinical trial was conducted in patients with stage III/IV breast cancer who were treated with the anti-idiotype mAb 1E10 specific to an Ab1 mAb able to react specifically with N-glycolyl-containing gangliosides and with antigens expressed on human melanoma and breast carcinoma cells. Patients were treated with 1 or 2 mg of aluminum(More)
We generated the 1E10 gamma-type anti-idiotype mAb (Ab2) specific to an Ab1 mAb able to react specifically with N-glycolyl-containing gangliosides and with Ags expressed on human melanoma and breast carcinoma cells. This Ab2 mAb induced an Ab response in animal models sharing immunochemically defined idiotopes with the Ab1. The treatment of tumor-bearing(More)
This paper describes an enzyme immunoassay for the quantitative determination of IgG, IgA, and IgM immunoglobulins on RBCs. Ether eluates made from RBCs were followed by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay of immunoglobulin concentration. Calibration curves were derived from immunoglobulin standards and the number of molecules of each isotype per RBC was(More)
Normal platelets display a log normal size distribution pattern when analysed by an automated cell counter. Considerable changes in the platelet size distribution occurs during collection, processing and storage. This is easily monitored by the variation seen in the cellular indices or size distribution patterns. Platelet activation leads to a shift to the(More)
