Cynomolgus macaques are relevant models for human diseases and transplantation. In each case, a complete understanding of these models requires knowledge of the macaque major histocompatibility complex (MHC). Because of high polymorphism and multiple genes per haplotype, it has been difficult to develop a rapid typing method for cynomolgus monkey MHC class(More)
We developed a recombinant defective adenovirus with an insert of gene encoding extracellular domain of mouse Flt3L (Ad-mFlt3L) under control of cytomegalovirus promoter to investigate the biological efficacy of Flt3L in combination with chemotherapeutical drug, 5-FU, in eliciting an effective anti-cancer immunity in mouse hepatoma and colon cancer model(More)
Fms-like tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (Flt3L) plays an important role in development and activation of dendritic cells (DCs) and natural killer cells (NK). It has been shown that administration of either tumor cells transfected in vitro with Flt3L vectors or soluble Flt3L fusion protein in a high dose can enhance host antitumor immunity in animal model systems.(More)
Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive disease with dismal prognosis. It is of paramount importance to understand the underlying etiological mechanisms and identify novel, consistent, and easy-to-apply prognostic factors for precision therapy. TUSC3 (tumor suppressor candidate 3) was identified as a potential tumor suppressor gene and previous study showed(More)
PURPOSE Constitutive NF-κB activation is identified in about 70% of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) cases and is required for oncogenic KRAS-induced PDAC development in mouse models. We sought to determine whether targeting IL-1α pathway would inhibit NF-κB activity and thus suppress PDAC cell growth. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN We determined whether(More)
