Specific transport systems for penicillins have been recognized, but their in vivo role in the context of other transporters remains unclear. We produced a serum against amoxicillin (anti-AMPC) conjugated to albumin with glutaraldehyde. The antiserum was specific for AMPC and ampicillin (ABPC) but cross-reacted weakly with cephalexin. This enabled us to(More)
Antibodies with modest neutralizing activity and narrow breadth are commonly elicited in HIV-1. Here, we evaluated the complementary and synergistic activities of a set of monoclonal antibodies (MAb) isolated from a single patient, directed to V3, CD4 binding site (CD4bs), and CD4 induced (CD4i) epitopes. Despite low somatic hypermutation percentages in the(More)
HIV-1 typically develops resistance to any single antiretroviral agent. Combined anti-retroviral therapy to reduce drug-resistance development is necessary to control HIV-1 infection. Here, to assess the utility of a combination of antibody and fusion inhibitor treatments, we investigated the potency of monoclonal antibodies at neutralizing HIV-1 variants(More)
We analyze Coordinated Multi-Point (CoMP) transmission and reception over heterogeneous wireless networks (HetNets). Our focus is on the design of a practical algorithm for joint resource allocation (joint scheduling) in each HetNet cluster. We present one such algorithm together with its detailed analysis and evaluation under two different approaches for(More)
The V3 loop in the envelope (Env) of HIV-1 is one of the major targets of neutralizing antibodies. However, this antigen is hidden inside the Env trimer in most isolates and is fully exposed only during CD4-gp120 interaction. Thus, primary HIV-1 isolates are relatively resistant to anti-V3 antibodies because IgG is too large to access the V3 loop. To(More)
