BACKGROUND Lung delivery of plasmid DNA encoding the CFTR gene complexed with a cationic liposome is a potential treatment option for patients with cystic fibrosis. We aimed to assess the efficacy of non-viral CFTR gene therapy in patients with cystic fibrosis. METHODS We did this randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 2b trial in two cystic(More)
BACKGROUND Determination of the volume of fetal D-positive cells in the circulation of D-negative women after delivery is carried out to determine whether additional prophylactic anti-D should be given to the mother. Although the Kleihauer-Betke test is still widely used to calculate the fetomaternal hemorrhage, increasing use is being made of flow(More)
Alloimmune feto-maternal destruction of blood cells is thought to be mediated by binding of alloantibodies to Fc receptors on effector cells. Blocking the antigen using inert antibodies might prolong cell survival. We have performed a "proof of principle" study in volunteers to measure the intravascular survival of autologous red cells coated with human(More)
Fetomaternal alloimmune thrombocytopenia, caused by the maternal generation of antibodies against fetal human platelet antigen-1a (HPA-1a), can result in intracranial hemorrhage and intrauterine death. We have developed a therapeutic human recombinant high-affinity HPA-1a antibody (B2G1Δnab) that competes for binding to the HPA-1a epitope but carries a(More)
The use of flow cytometry for quantifying fetomaternal haemorrhage is increasing, and has been shown to be more accurate than the Kleihauer-Betke test for evaluating larger bleeds of over 4 mL in volume. Red cells are stained with fluorescently labelled monoclonal anti-D. Cells for analysis are normally gated manually on the basis of forward and side(More)
Information on the number of D sites on weak D (Du) and D variant cells is limited and incomplete. The aim of this study was to use a simple non-isotopic technique utilising a combination of flow cytometry and ELISA to quantitate the number of D sites on an extensive range of these cells. Five human monoclonal IgG anti-D (BRAD-7 (JAC10), BRAD-5, 2B6,(More)
We report on the safety and immunogenicity of idiotypic DNA vaccination in a phase I, non-randomised, open-label study in patients with multiple myeloma. The study used DNA fusion gene vaccines encoding patient-specific single chain variable fragment, or idiotype (Id), linked to fragment C (FrC) of tetanus toxin. Patients in complete or partial response(More)
PURPOSE We have clinically evaluated a DNA fusion vaccine to target the HLA-A*0201-binding peptide CAP-1 from carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA605-613) linked to an immunostimulatory domain (DOM) from fragment C of tetanus toxin. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Twenty-seven patients with CEA-expressing carcinomas were recruited: 15 patients with measurable disease(More)
Chickenpox is a highly infectious disease that can be life-threatening to certain groups such as the newborn of nonimmune mothers and immunocompromised patients. At present, prophylactic treatment of individuals at risk involves the use of a polyclonal antibody preparation derived from the pooled sera of hyperimmune donors. While this product is effective,(More)
