Parkinson's disease (PD), a neurological disease suited to gene therapy, is biochemically characterized by a severe decrease in the dopamine content of the striatum. One current strategy for gene therapy of PD involves local production of dopamine in the striatum achieved by inducing the expression of enzymes involved in the biosynthetic pathway for(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by the progressive loss of the dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra and a severe decrease in dopamine in the striatum. A promising approach to the gene therapy of PD is intrastriatal expression of dopamine-synthesizing enzymes [tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase (AADC)]. The(More)
Antibody-based immunotherapy has been effectively used for tumor treatment. However, to date, only a few tumor-associated antigens (TAAs) or therapeutic targets have been identified. Identification of more immunogenic antigens is essential for improvements in multiple myeloma (MM) diagnosis and therapy. In this study, we synthesized a polyclonal antibody(More)
