The human immune system produces a protein called hCAP18 (also known as LL-37 or cathelicidin). This protein is believed to help the body to fight infections. Studies suggest that vitamin D may important in the production of hCAP18. This study is designed to test the ability of two different forms of vitamin D to affect levels of hCAP18. Vitamin D and hCAP18 levels will be measured during an initial visit. Individuals who are vitamin D deficient will be randomly assigned to rec...

This study will look at immunoglobulin (Ig) treatment in hospitalized chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) patients with frequent exacerbations. This is a Phase II, pilot randomized double blind control study, meaning this study will help assess if this research can be expanded to evaluate Ig treatment in patients with COPD. Ig treatment is a sterile solution of human immunoglobulin proteins given intravenously (in the vein). Immunoglobulins are part of the immune system an...
Interleukin 29 (IL-29) is a substance that is produced in the body to help fight viral infections. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and antiviral effects of several different doses of PEG-rIL-29 (a man-made form of IL-29) when it is given in combination with daily oral doses of ribavirin (an antiviral drug) to subjects with hepatitis C infection who have received no prior treatment for this disease.
Interleukin 29 (IL-29) is a substance that is produced in the body to help fight viral infections. The purpose of this study is to test the safety and antiviral effects of PEG-rIL-29 (a man-made form of IL-29) when it is given either by itself at different doses or in combination with the approved dose of ribavirin (an antiviral drug) to subjects with hepatitis C infection who have received no prior treatment for this disease or who have relapsed following previous treatment wi...
