Rituximab, chimeric anti-human CD20 monoclonal antibody approved for B-cell lymphoma, depletes circulating B cells. Little data exist on its use for nonmalignant diseases or B-cell subset recovery after treatment. We hypothesized that rituximab may reduce panel reactive alloantibodies (PRA) in...
The VH4-34 represents an unusual Ig heavy chain variable region gene given that it is conserved and overexpressed despite its autoreactivity. Besides RBC 'I/i' recognition, a subset of VH4-34 encoded Igs bind and kill human B-lymphocytes via interaction with a cytoskeletally-associated ligand...
Purification of human IgM monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) has proved to be difficult. Since IgM Mabs tend to bind strongly to a variety of resin support surfaces, the number of chromatographic steps used in the purification of these biomolecules should be minimized. Here we describe procedures...
Recombinant protein production in plants such as corn is a promising means to generate high product yields at low comparable production cost. The anti-EGFR monoclonal antibody C225, cetuximab, is a well-characterized receptor antagonist antibody recently approved for the treatment of refractory...
Malaria is one of the world's most devastating diseases, and Plasmodium falciparum (Pf) causes significant mortalities particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. The rise and spread of multi-drug resistant strains of the parasite has coincided with an era of increased travel to malaria endemic regions....
Early detection and differential analysis of premalignant lesions are very important for both prognosis and therapy of cancer patients. A good source of diagnostic tools is the natural antibody pool of humans. Tumor-specific antibodies can be established by using hybridoma technology. The fully...
