Emerging monoclonal antibodies as targeted innovative therapeutic approaches to asthma.

Asthma is characterized by discordant responses among cells of the adaptive and innate immune systems. This interplay involves a complex pattern of cytokine driven processes resulting in cell migratio...

The Cloning and Expression of Human Monoclonal Antibodies: Implications for Allergen Immunotherapy.

Allergic responses are dependent on the highly specific effector functions of IgE antibodies. Conversely, antibodies that block the activity of IgE can mediate tolerance to allergen. Technologies that...

Sub-Nanogram Detection of RDX Explosive by Monoclonal Antibodies.

Polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies were raised to protein carrier molecules haptenized with RDX, a major component of many plastic explosives including Semtex. Sera from immunized mice detected RDX ...

Efficacy and Safety of Benralizumab, a Monoclonal Antibody against IL-5Rα, in Uncontrolled Eosinophilic Asthma.

Nonresponders to maximal guideline-based therapies of asthma account for most of the morbidity, mortality, and economic burden of the disease. Because eosinophils are key effector cells in asthmatic a...

Treatment with anti-cytokine monoclonal antibodies can potentiate the target cytokine rather than neutralize its activity.

Type 2 cytokines are critical mediators of allergic airway disease. Therefore, it has been theorized that developing monoclonal antibodies that neutralize these cytokines should ameliorate allergic rh...

Monoclonal Antibody Therapy Plus Sargramostin in Treating Patients With Advanced Neuroblastoma

RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Combining colony-stimulating factors,...

Monoclonal Antibodies in Detecting Residual Disease in Patients Who Have Been Treated for Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Diagnostic imaging procedures, such as radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies, may improve the ability to detect the residual disease in patients who have been treated for non-Hodgk...

Safety, Tolerability and Efficacy Study of the Monoclonal Antibody, CT-011, in Patients With Metastatic Melanoma

The purpose of this research study is to see if the study drug, CT-011, is safe to give and if it helps people with melanoma that has spread to other areas of their body. CT-011 is a monoc...

A Humanized Anti-Interferon-γ Monoclonal Antibody (HuZAF) for Moderate to Severe Crohn's Disease

The purpose of the HARMONY study is to assess the safety and efficacy of an investigational drug called HuZAF, in patients with moderate to severe Crohn's disease (CD). HuZAF is a humanize...

Radiolabeled Monoclonal Antibody in Treating Patients With Previously Treated Large Cell Lymphoma

RATIONALE: Radiolabeled monoclonal antibodies can locate tumor cells and deliver tumor-killing substances such as radioactive iodine to them without harming normal cells. PURPOSE: Phase I...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Loss of detectable antigen from the surface of a cell after incubation with antibodies. This is one method in which some tumors escape detection by the immune system. Antigenic modulation of target antigens also reduces the therapeutic effectiveness of treatment by monoclonal antibodies.

Antibodies obtained from a single clone of cells grown in mice or rats.

Antibodies produced by clones of cells such as those isolated after hybridization of activated B LYMPHOCYTES with neoplastic cells. These hybrids are often referred to as HYBRIDOMAS.

Antibodies, often monoclonal, in which the two antigen-binding sites are specific for separate ANTIGENIC DETERMINANTS. They are artificial antibodies produced by chemical crosslinking, fusion of HYBRIDOMA cells, or by molecular genetic techniques. They function as the main mediators of targeted cellular cytotoxicity and have been shown to be efficient in the targeting of drugs, toxins, radiolabeled haptens, and effector cells to diseased tissue, primarily tumors.

A vasodilator that also has bronchodilatory action. It has been employed in the treatment of angina pectoris, in the treatment of asthma, and in conjunction with ultraviolet light A, has been tried in the treatment of vitiligo. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1024)
