is prevalent intracellular parasite and a cause of worldwide infection in the human population. An inhibitory effect of this parasite on cancer growth has been demonstrated in cell culture and animal ...
Described in several epithelial cancer cells, Tn- (GalNAcα1-O-Ser/Thr) and T- (Galβ3GalNAcα1-O-Ser/Thr) antigens are examples of tumor-associated antigens. Increased expression of Tn- and T-antigen...
Detection of circulatory estradiol has widespread use in various clinical applications. Particularly, the use of estradiol-specific antibodies in immunoassays is routinely used, mainly due to the cost...
Anti-HBs antibodies develop after natural infection with hepatitis B virus (HBV) or vaccination against this virus, as a result of activation of the human immune system by the HBV surface antigen (HBs...
Transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI) is a rare but serious adverse transfusion reaction and is known to be related to anti-human leukocyte antigen (HLA) or anti-human neutrophil antigen (HNA)...
The investigators have obtained compelling evidence that the development of anti-human leukocyte antigen (anti-HLA) antibodies against mismatched donor antigens significantly correlates wi...
Background: Platelets are blood cells that help blood clot. Some people have what is called thrombocytopenia. This means they have a low blood platelet count. They need platelet tra...
The overall goal of this study is to find out about the safety of injecting the genes (DNA) for human and mouse tyrosinase in patients with melanoma. There is no evidence yet that injectio...
Previous reports have suggested that ALT-immunoglobulin complex was increased according to the severity of the liver disease, and high concentration of mAST and this might indicate a sever...
The purpose of this study is to find a safe dose of actinium-225 when it is labeled to HuM195. This will be done with a "phase I trial," in which a preset schedule of doses gets more power...
Anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody that exerts immunosuppressive effects by inducing peripheral T-cell depletion and modulation of the T-cell receptor complex (CD3/Ti). This biochemically purified IMMUNOGLOBULIN G is obtained through the fusion of mouse myeloma cells to lymphocytes from immunized animals to produce hybridomas that secrete specific antibodies to the T3 (CD3) antigens of human T-lymphocytes. It is often used as an IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVE AGENTS in TRANSPLANTATION.
Antiphospholipid antibodies found in association with systemic lupus erythematosus (LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS, SYSTEMIC;), ANTIPHOSPHOLIPID SYNDROME; and in a variety of other diseases as well as in healthy individuals. The antibodies are detected by solid-phase IMMUNOASSAY employing the purified phospholipid antigen CARDIOLIPIN.
Antibodies which react with the individual structural determinants (idiotopes) on the variable region of other antibodies.
Antibodies from non-human species whose protein sequences have been modified to make them nearly identical with human antibodies. If the constant region and part of the variable region are replaced, they are called humanized. If only the constant region is modified they are called chimeric. INN names for humanized antibodies end in -zumab.
The aggregation of soluble ANTIGENS with ANTIBODIES, alone or with antibody binding factors such as ANTI-ANTIBODIES or STAPHYLOCOCCAL PROTEIN A, into complexes large enough to fall out of solution.
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. For example: to diagnose diseases to measure the progress or recovery from disease to confirm that a person is free from disease Clin...
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...
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
