ABSTRACTTRAIL, tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand, is a member of the TNF family of proteins. Tumour cells were initially found to have increased sensitivity to TRAIL compared with normal cells, raising hopes that TRAIL would prove useful as an anti-tumor agent. The production of reliable monoclonal antibodies against TRAIL and its(More)
Carbohydrate antigens such as glycolipids and glycoproteins are over-expressed in a variety of cancers and have therefore been identified as ideal candidates for tumour vaccines. Detection of anti-carbohydrate antibodies is associated with a good prognosis in cancer patients. However, generation of an efficient adaptive immune response has been hampered by(More)
Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) family ligands and their corresponding receptors play important roles in the immune system and are involved in immune regulation such as lymphoid development, cell proliferation, differentiation, activation and death. Antibodies against these ligands and receptors together with Fc-fusion proteins, have been particularly useful(More)
