Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) and its associated receptors (TRAIL-R/TR) are attractive targets for cancer therapy because TRAIL induces apoptosis in tumor cells through TR while having little cytotoxicity on normal cells. Therefore, many agonistic monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) specific for TR have been produced, and(More)
Granulomatous mastitis (GM) is a rare breast disease with unknown etiology. Clinical management strategies for GM include surgery, antibiotics, and steroid treatments. As patients with GM often respond to steroids, GM is thought to be an autoimmune disease. Here we describe a case of trauma-induced GM that presented as autoimmune disease but was(More)
Tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) and its receptors (TRAIL-R1 and TRAIL-R2) are promising targets for tumor therapy. However, their clinical use is limited because some tumors show resistance to TRAIL-treatment. Here, we analyzed epitopes of nine TRAIL-R1-specific human monoclonal antibodies and demonstrated at least five(More)
