Recombinant T-cell receptor ligands (RTLs) can prevent and reverse clinical and histological signs of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in an antigen-specific manner and are currently in clinical trials for treatment of subjects with multiple sclerosis (MS). To evaluate regulatory mechanisms, we designed and tested RTL551, containing the(More)
Tumors are composed of multiple cell types besides the tumor cells themselves, including innate immune cells such as macrophages. Tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) are a heterogeneous population of myeloid cells present in the tumor microenvironment (TME). Here, they contribute to immunosuppression, enabling the establishment and persistence of solid(More)
Susceptibility to multiple sclerosis (MS) is associated genetically with human leucocyte antigen (HLA) class II alleles, including DRB1*1501, DRB5*0101, and DQB1*0602, and it is possible that these alleles contribute to MS through an enhanced ability to present encephalitogenic myelin peptides to pathogenic T cells. HLA-DRB1*1502, which contains glycine(More)
The activity of RU 41740, a glycoprotein extract from Klebsiella pneumoniae has been investigated on some polymorphonuclear (PMN) functions. Chemotaxis, random migration and oxidative metabolism (assessed by chemiluminescence, O2 consumption and O2- generation) were studied in parallel. PMN were collected from adult and aged human volunteers. Experiments(More)
The results of clinical trials are only valid if the right statistical test for the type of study performed is applied. The authors suggest a method, accessible to all physicians, that should facilitate the choice between various tests and enable the readers of clinical trial papers to detect errors in the presentation of the results. Starting from an(More)
