AIM To describe the clinical effects of single and multiple doses of a potent, selective, orally administered, small-molecule antagonist of the human glucagon receptor, LY2409021, in healthy subjects and in patients with type 2 diabetes. METHODS LY2409021 was administered in dose-escalation studies to healthy subjects (n = 23) and patients with type 2(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine if total nucleated cell counts alone are sufficient for predicting the efficacy of cord blood units for transplant from neonatal umbilical cord blood samples. METHODS Umbilical cord blood samples were collected from 200 mothers at delivery and the cord blood units processed. The total nucleated cells and CD34+ cells were enumerated(More)
Staphylococcal enterotoxins (SE) bind to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II molecules and the V beta region of T cell receptors (TCR) and subsequently induces T cell proliferation. This mitogenicity is the basis of pathological effects seen in food poisoning and toxic shock syndrome. Toxin-specific monoclonal antibodies have previously been(More)
WHAT IS ALREADY KNOWN ABOUT THIS SUBJECT * Only one other study (Becker et al.) has reported on the influence of smoking cessation and smoking resumption on inhaled insulin pharmacokinetics and glucodynamics, concluding that the rapid changes associated with smoking resumption carry the risk for hypoglycaemia and thus should not be used by active smokers.(More)
A novel allele, C*0406, has been identified and is characterised by a single nucleotide substitution at position 196 of exon 3 when compared with its closest related allele, C*0403. The latter is found in 4/69 Chinese and 7/80 Malays while Cw*0406 was found in only one Malay individual within the study populations. The data suggest that Cw*0406 may have(More)
A monoclonal antibody 137BL7 raised against purified DR1 protein was shown to bind specifically to 5/5 DR1, 18/18 DR2 cells and 0/23 non-DR1,2 cells by cell-EIA. Further analysis by FACS using HLA-transfectants revealed that 137BL7 also bound specifically to the DRB5 transfectants in addition to the expected DR1 transfectants. However, it did not bind to(More)
