Antibody-based drugs such as infliximab (IFX) are effective for the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and other immune-mediated disorders. The development of antibodies against these drugs may result in unfavorable consequences, including the loss of drug efficacy, hypersensitivity reactions, and other adverse events. Therefore, accurate(More)
This report describes the analytical validation and application of the homogeneous mobility shift assay (HMSA) method for the measurement of adalimumab and human antibodies-to-adalimumab (ATA) in serum samples from patients who have lost response to adalimumab treatment. Validation of the ATA- and the adalimumab-HMSA revealed a lower limit of detection to(More)
Activating mutations in the gene encoding β-catenin have been identified in the paediatric form of human craniopharyngioma (adamantinomatous craniopharyngioma, ACP), a histologically benign but aggressive pituitary tumour accounting for up to 10% of paediatric intracranial tumours. Recently, we generated an ACP mouse model and revealed that, as in human(More)
bcl-2, the well known anti-apoptotic gene, cloned more than a decade ago, promotes cell viability without promoting cell proliferation. With few exceptions, high bcl-2 protein expression is associated with a favourable outcome in epithelial tumours. bcl-2 immunoreactivity in basal cell carcinomas (BCCs) is contradictory, with 67-100% immunopositivity being(More)
Seventy three cases of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) from the 3 histological subtypes (patch, plaque and nodular) were assessed for bcl-2 and p53 protein expression. The aim was to determine the level of expression of these proteins in KS and in the different subtypes. Commercially available antibodies to bcl-2 and p53 were applied after both microwave and pressure(More)
BACKGROUND Transepithelial elimination (TEE), a distinct and well-known entity, is a process during which the skin eradicates undesirable or irritative dermal substances through intact epidermis or follicular epithelium by passive or active means. Although TEE is being described in an increasing number and range of pathological processes, to date, TEE of(More)
