Loss of CD30 Expression in Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma Following Brentuximab Therapy.

Monoclonal antibody therapy is a new innovation in cancer therapy. Binding of monoclonal antibodies to tumor cells facilitates their destruction by the immune system. Tumor cells with mutated target a...

lenalidomide for the treatment of B-cell lymphoma.

Although the combination of an anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody and chemotherapy has widely improved survival of patients with B-cell lymphoma, the disease still relapses. A better understanding of the b...

Obinutuzumab in chronic lymphocytic leukemia: design, development and place in therapy.

For decades, treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has been based on chemotherapy. This changed when the first CD20 antibody rituximab was introduced. Since 2008, the combination of chemothe...

Cutaneous B-cell lymphomas - pathogenesis, diagnostic workup, and therapy.

Cutaneous B-cell lymphomas (CBCLs) comprise a group of mature lymphoproliferative B-cell disorders that primarily affect the skin. Characterized by great biological and clinical variability among its ...

Inflammation causes resistance to anti-CD20 mediated B cell depletion.

B cells play a central role in antibody-mediated rejection and certain auto-immune diseases. However, B-cell-targeted therapy such as anti-CD20 B cell-depleting antibody(aCD20) has yielded mixed resul...

Rituximab Post Autografting for Relapsed B-Cell Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

High dose therapy with auto stem cell transplant increases the event-free survival in diffuse aggressive lymphomas and low grade lymphomas compared with conventional therapy. However, rela...

Anti-CD20 Antibody Therapy for Sjogren's Syndrome

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety of the anti-CD20 antibody rituximab in treating patients with Sjogren's syndrome (SS). Rituximab is a laboratory-made antibody currentl...

Pilot Study of Anti-CD20-CAR-engineered T Cells in Patients With Chemotherapy Resistant or Refractory CD20+ Lymphoma

Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells targeting CD20 will be evaluated for safety and efficacy in patients with CD20+ B cell lymphoma. The CAR consists of a CD20 targeting antibody scFv ...

A Study to Assess the Pharmacokinetics and Safety of Recombinant Human Murine Chimeric Anti CD20 Monoclonal Antibody Injection (IBI301) Compared to Rituximab Injection in CD20 Positive B Cell Lymphoma Patients

Randomised, double-blind, parallel group study to compare PK and PD profiles between IBI301 and rituximab in patients with CD20+ B-cell Lymphoma

BI-1206 and an Anti-CD20 Antibody in Patients With CD32b Positive B-cell Lymphoma or Leukaemia

The purpose of this study is to identify the tolerable dose of BI-1206 for patients with B-cell lymphoma and leukaemia and further evaluate BI-1206 alone and in combination with an anti-CD...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Test for tissue antigen using either a direct method, by conjugation of antibody with fluorescent dye (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, DIRECT) or an indirect method, by formation of antigen-antibody complex which is then labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody (FLUORESCENT ANTIBODY TECHNIQUE, INDIRECT). The tissue is then examined by fluorescence microscopy.

A form of fluorescent antibody technique commonly used to detect serum antibodies and immune complexes in tissues and microorganisms in specimens from patients with infectious diseases. The technique involves formation of an antigen-antibody complex which is labeled with fluorescein-conjugated anti-immunoglobulin antibody. (From Bennington, Saunders Dictionary & Encyclopedia of Laboratory Medicine and Technology, 1984)

The in vitro formation of clusters consisting of a cell (usually a lymphocyte) surrounded by antigenic cells or antigen-bearing particles (usually erythrocytes, which may or may not be coated with antibody or antibody and complement). The rosette-forming cell may be an antibody-forming cell, a memory cell, a T-cell, a cell bearing surface cytophilic antibodies, or a monocyte possessing Fc receptors. Rosette formation can be used to identify specific populations of these cells.

A form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma having a usually diffuse pattern with both small and medium lymphocytes and small cleaved cells. It accounts for about 5% of adult non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the United States and Europe. The majority of mantle-cell lymphomas are associated with a t(11;14) translocation resulting in overexpression of the CYCLIN D1 gene (GENES, BCL-1).

The phenomenon of antibody-mediated target cell destruction by non-sensitized effector cells. The identity of the target cell varies, but it must possess surface IMMUNOGLOBULIN G whose Fc portion is intact. The effector cell is a "killer" cell possessing Fc receptors. It may be a lymphocyte lacking conventional B- or T-cell markers, or a monocyte, macrophage, or polynuclear leukocyte, depending on the identity of the target cell. The reaction is complement-independent.
