BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis (MS) as an auto-immune disease is an inflammatory, demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Certain genes have shown to be involved in the initiation of MS but the specific role of some of them, e.g. IFNAR1 has not been identified in certain populations yet. OBJECTIVE: The IFNAR1 as a type I membrane protein shapes one of the two chains of a receptor for interferons alpha and beta. METHODS: To find out how IFNAR1 functions in the Iranian population, the researchers compared the expression level of this gene in relapsing-remitting MS (RR-MS) samples with normal individuals...

AIM: CD44s antigens have been suggested as an efficient biomarker for cancer stem cells. Current study aimed to develop a hybridoma that producing a high affinity murine anti-human CD44 monoclonal antibody for early diagnostic laboratory tests of some cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To make hybridoma against CD44, mice were immunized with MDA-MB-468 cells. Resulted hybridomas using three culture media were screened by indirect ELISA, then cloned by limiting dilution, and isotype was determined after obtaining ascitic fluid and antibody purification...

BACKGROUND: CD20-based targeting of B-cells in hematologic malignancies and autoimmune disorders is associated with outstanding clinical outcomes. Isolation and characterization of VH and VL cDNAs encoding the variable regions of the heavy and light chains of monoclonal antibodies (MAb) is necessary to produce next generation MAbs and their derivatives such as and bispecific antibodies (bsAb) and single-chain variable fragments (scFv). OBJECTIVE: This study was aimed at cloning and characterization of the VH and VL cDNAs from a hybridoma cell against the CD20 antigen...

A single peripheral dose of CNS-binding IgMs promote remyelination and preserve axons in a number of animal models of neurologic disease. A myelin-binding recombinant human IgM (rHIgM22) is presently in a safety trial in MS patients following an acute MS exacerbation. rHIgM22 (directed against oligodendrocytes) or rHIgM12 (directed against neurons) were administered to mice with MOG-induced experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) with study endpoints: clinical deficits and brain and spinal cord pathology...

Over the past several years remarkable therapeutic responses have been obtained with immunomodulatory monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), both in mice [10,18,20,48,54,61] and human cancer patients [1,3,14,28,30,39,80]. However, complete regressions and cures are infrequent and not predictable and some tumor types respond much worse than others. As an attempt to increase curability, we have investigated in mouse models the therapeutic efficacy of several mAb combinations, focusing on anti-PD-1/CTLA-4/CD137 and anti-PD-1/CTLA-4/CD137/CD19, and we have also combined mAbs with the chemotherapeutic drug cisplatin...

Co-stimulatory tumor necrosis factor receptors (TNFRs) can sculpt the responsiveness of T cells recognizing tumor-associated antigens. For this reason, agonist antibodies targeting CD137, CD357, CD134 and CD27 have received considerable attention for their therapeutic utility in enhancing anti-tumor immune responses, particularly in combination with other immuno-modulatory antibodies targeting co-inhibitory pathways in T cells. The design of therapeutic antibodies that optimally engage and activate co-stimulatory TNFRs presents an important challenge of how to promote effective anti-tumor immunity while avoiding serious immune-related adverse events...

BACKGROUND: Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the one of the most common heart diseases, being the main factor of mortality and morbidity worldwide. CAD has been known as a multifactorial disease and its progression depends on genetic and environmental factors. Numerous studies have shown evidence for association between 12q24.3 locus and CAD. OBJECTIVES: In the present study, the association of two HNF1A polymorphisms, rs2259816 and rs7310409, located on 12q24.3 locus with CAD was investigated in Iranian patients...

Receptor tyrosine kinase-like orphan receptor (ROR1) belongs to one of the families of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs). RTKs are involved in the various physiologic cellular functions including proliferation, migration, survival, signaling and differentiation. Several RTKs are deregulated in various cancers implying the targeting potential of these molecules in cancer therapy. ROR1 has recently been shown to be expressed in various types of cancer cells but not in normal adult cells. Hence a molecular inhibitor of extracellular domain of ROR1 that inhibits ROR1-cell surface interaction is of great therapeutic importance...

BACKGROUND: Blood transfusion is one of the most important therapeutic options of life-saving intervention for recipients who are in diseased or non-diseased conditions with severe blood loss. However, it is associated with certain risks which can lead to adverse consequences that may cause acute or delayed complications and bring the risk of transfusion-transmissible infections including HIV, Hepatitis B & C and Syphilis. So, there might be a fatal risk instead of life saving. This paper aims to provide a comprehensive and reliable tabulation of available data on seroprevalence and diagnosis of HIV, HBV, HCV and Syphilis infections among blood donors...

It's known that diphtheria and tetanus are a contagious lethal diseases over the years, they caused by pathogenic microbes corynebacterium diphtheria and Clostridium tetani, respectively. The diseases result from the production of bacterial toxin. Vaccination with bacterial toxoid vaccines adsorbed on particulates adjuvants still are the best way to prevent this epidemic diseases from spread. The particulate vaccines have been shown to be more efficient than soluble one for the induction of the immune responses...

Japanese cedar pollen allergen Cry j2 is a causal allergen of seasonal pollinosis in Japan. To analyze B cell epitopes of Cry j2, we established two human-mouse hybridomas secreting IgM class human monoclonal antibodies to Cry j2. A pin-peptide enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay with synthesized icosa peptides showed that 404-117 monoclonal antibody bound to peptides #11-13 with cry j2 amino acid sequence of 101F-L140. Detailed analysis with octa peptides and alanine substituted peptides indicated that an amino acid sequence of 118FKVD121 was an essential for antibody binding...

One of the most exciting fields in modern medicine is immunotherapy, treatment which looks to harness the power of the immune system to fight disease. A particularly effective strategy uses antibodies designed to influence the activity levels of the immune system. Here we look at two receptors - TIGIT and DNAM-1 - which bind the same ligands but have opposite effects on immune cells, earning them the label `paired receptors'. Importantly, natural killer cells and cytotoxic T cells express both of these receptors, and in certain cases their effector functions are dictated by TIGIT or DNAM-1 signaling...

This review focuses on the concept of antibodies acting as receptor agonists and antagonists, and on the potential relevance of this notion in applied medicine. Antibodies are composed of three functional units: two antigen-binding fragments (Fabs) that confer antigen specificity and one constant fragment (Fc) linking antibodies to immune effector functions. The proof-of-concept that large amounts of highly specific and homogeneous antibodies could be produced was provided in 1975 by César Milstein and Georges Köhler...
