The importance of the common vampire bat Desmodus rotundus for the transmission of the rabies virus does not lie solely in its ability to transmit this disease to other mammals, but also in its capaci...
Social bonds, maintained by mutual investments of time and energy, have greatly influenced the evolution of social cognition and cooperation in many species [e.g., 1-8]. However, there are two pitfall...
This proposal uses HER2Bi armed activated T-cells (HER2 BATs) to target breast cancer in combination with pembrolizumab (PBZ) in women with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Phase I will det...
This is a phase I trial using EGFR Bi-armed Activated T-cells (BATs) in combination with standard of care temozolomide (TMZ) and radiation (RT) in patients with glioblastoma (GBM). The pur...
This study uses bi-specific antibody (HER2Bi) armed activated T-cells (HER2 BATs) to target breast cancer cells that have metastasized to the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cor...
This protocol will confirm toxicities and estimate the clinical efficacy of combining anti-CD3 x anti-EGFR bispecific antibody (EGFRBi) armed activated T cells (EGFR BATs) given to patient...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate desmoteplase (which is a manufactured protein derived from the saliva of the vampire bat) in dissolving clots that are blocking the flow of blood t...
Order of mammals whose members are adapted for flight. It includes bats, flying foxes, and fruit bats.
An acute infectious disease of the central nervous system affecting almost all mammals, including humans. It is caused by a rhabdovirus and usually spread by contamination with virus-laden saliva of bites inflicted by rabid animals. Important animal vectors include the dog, cat, vampire bat, mongoose, skunk, wolf, raccoon, and fox. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
