Sixteen research groups participated in the ISOBM TD-4 Workshop in which the reactivity and specificity of 56 monoclonal antibodies against the MUC1 mucin was investigated using a diverse panel of target antigens and MUC1 mucin-related synthetic peptides and glycopeptides. The majority of antibodies (34/56) defined epitopes located within the 20-amino acid(More)
The protein core of high mol. wt polymorphic epithelial mucin (PEM--approximately 400 kDa glycoprotein) which is associated with breast carcinomas, consists of a repeating 20 amino acid peptide motif [Gendler et al. (1988) J. biol. Chem. 263, 12,820-12,823]. Monoclonal antibodies C595 (anti-urinary mucin) and NCRC-11 (anti-breast carcinoma cells), and other(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the localization of the anti-MUC1 mucin monoclonal antibody (mAb) NCRC48 to bladder cancer following intravesical administration. PATIENTS AND METHODS mAb NCRC48 (330-500 micrograms) radiolabelled with 111indium (11-17 MBq) was administered intravesically to 12 unselected patients with radiological evidence of bladder cancer. Tumour(More)
As an approach to developing more specific anti-tumour therapeutic agents, daunomycin has been covalently linked to the human tumour localizing, murine monoclonal antibody 791T/36. Four procedures for coupling drug to antibody were investigated. The sugar amino group of daunomycin was modified by reaction with succinic anhydride or cis aconitic anhydride(More)
There is convincing epidemiological evidence that multiparity provides protection against the development of breast cancer. In the present study we evaluated the levels of MUC1 and MUC1 circulating immune complexes (MUC1-CIC) in 135 serum samples obtained from healthy women. The study population included 13 women who had never been pregnant, 31 primiparous(More)
Trichosanthin, a ribosomal inhibitor protein, blocks HIV replication in lymphocytes and macrophages. This agent was used to treat 51 patients with advanced HIV disease in a dose-escalation study in which three injections were administered over a 9-21-day period in a dose range of 10-30 micrograms/kg per injection. The maximum tolerated dose was estimated to(More)
