Recent reports have shown that protein A of Staphylococcus aureus (SpA) is a specific toxin for B cells by virtue of specific binding interactions with conserved sites on the V H region of the B-cell antigen receptor. The structural basis for these Fab-binding interactions has recently been...
To evaluate the effects of the timing of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) on immune reconstitution, we compared lymphocyte subpopulations and lymphocyte proliferation (LP) in response to Candida albicans, cytomegalovirus, HIV p24, Mycobacterium avium complex, pokeweed mitogen,...
The prognostic significance of IL-10 and IL-6 serum levels in colon cancer patients undergoing surgery was investigated. To this end, 50 candidate patients with colon cancer for surgery were admitted to the study. Of these, 30 could be subjected to a potentially curative surgery. Cytokine serum...
Previously, we described the inhibition of proinflammatory mediators such as nitric oxide, tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), and prostaglandin E 2 by taurine chloramine (Tau-Cl) in activated rodent macrophages. We also demonstrated that Tau-Cl suppressed superoxide anion, IL-6, and IL-8...
We reported recently that immune complexes (ICs) induced matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) expression in U937 histiocytes. The present study was undertaken to determine the effect of pretreatment of U937 cells with interferon-γ (IFN-γ) on IC-induced MMP-1 expression. Our flow cytometry studies...
Although the etiology of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) remains unclear, there is substantial circumstantial evidence that the development of SLE is dependent on environmental, genetic, and retroviral factors. SLE patients produce high titer antibodies to various retroviral proteins,...
Patients with allergic asthma present clinically with chronic or intermittent disease caused by either persistent or periodic allergen exposure. We sought to generate clinically relevant disease in mice, which would reflect the relapsing, remitting, and constant nature of this syndrome. We...
We studied the effect of exogenously administered recombinant human interleukin (IL)-6 on the development of experimental autoimmune orchitis (EAO) in C3H/Hej mice. IL-6 significantly reduced histological signs of EAO and appearance of delayed type hypersensitivity against the immunizing...
The gene encoding neutrophil alloantigen NB1, CD177, is highly homologous to a gene overexpressed in polycythemia vera neutrophils, polycythemia rubra vera-1 (PRV-1). The cDNAs of both genes have been cloned, but their genomic structure is unknown. The purpose of this study was to determine the...
