Rituximab, a chimeric anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody (mAb), has been used in polyneuropathy associated with anti-MAG antibody polyneuropathy with controversial results. Herein, we report on two patients with anti-MAG antibody neuropathy and concurrent chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL), who dramatically responded to obinutuzumab, a novel glycoengineered humanized anti-CD20 mAb.

Since the inception of rituximab in the 1990s, anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies have revolutionised the treatmant of B cell hematological malignancies and have become a cornerstone of modern gold-stand...
Rituximab is a chimeric anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody that is very effective in treating patients with pemphigus vulgaris. Though infrequent, the development of human anti-chimeric antibodies in patie...
Chimeric and murine anti-GD2 antibodies are active against neuroblastoma, but the development of neutralizing antibodies can compromise efficacy. To decrease immunogenicity, hu3F8, a humanized anti-GD...

The aim of this study was to investigate the association of anti-early apoptotic cell autoantibodies, anti-SSA, and anti-SSB with clinical features of lupus nephritis (LN). Multiparameter flow cytomet...
This study is a multicenter phase II trial which primary objective is to assess the anti-lymphoma activity of atezolizumab associated with a BCL-2 inhibitor (GDC-199, venetoclax) and an an...
This open-label, multicenter, randomized Phase III study is designed to compare the efficacy and safety of a combined regimen of obinutuzumab and GDC-0199 versus obinutuzumab + chlorambuci...
This study is evaluating the efficacy of obinutuzumab in combination with chlorambucil compared with ACP-196 in combination with obinutuzumab (Arm B) for the treatment of previously untrea...
This study will evaluate the effects of idelalisib with obinutuzumab versus the combination of chlorambucil and obinutuzumab on progression-free survival (PFS) in participants with previou...
This study evaluates the combination of ublituximab, a novel monoclonal antibody, and TGR-1202, a novel PI3K delta inhibitor compared to obinutuzumab and chlorambucil, and compared to ubli...
An anti-gas warfare agent that is effective against Lewisite (dichloro(2-chlorovinyl)arsine) and formerly known as British Anti-Lewisite or BAL. It acts as a chelating agent and is used in the treatment of arsenic, gold, and other heavy metal poisoning.
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)
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.
An anti-VEGF recombinant monoclonal antibody consisting of humanized murine antibody. It inhibits VEGF receptors and prevents the proliferation of blood vessels.
A non-steroidal anti-fertility agent with anti-hormonal properties.
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
