Peregrine's PS-targeting antibodies highlighted in AACR Annual Meeting studies

... human anti-PS antibody, PGN635, to confirm previous observations that in vitro, anti-PS antibodies stimulate the tumor microenvironment to recruit monocytes and other immune cells to the tumor with resulting anti-tumor effects, most likely via cell-mediated mechanisms such as antibody-dependent ...

New origin found for a critical immune response

... other chemokines or chemokine receptors. They found that mice without the Ccr2 chemokine receptor that controls the migration of inflammatory monocytes had much lower accumulation of monocyte-derived dendritic cells and TH1 responses. The scientists concluded that there is a blood-derived lymph ...

New discovery may lead to new class of allergy drugs

... during an allergic reaction. Through a series of laboratory procedures, they tracked changes in immune cell type and found that eotaxin inhibits monocytes becoming dendritic cells (that find foreign invaders so other immune cells can neutralize them), resulting in more "fighter" cells being present ...

UC Davis researchers discover new drug target for inflammatory disease

... which are important first-line defenders for the immune system responsible for attacking foreign substances in the body. At elevated levels, monocytes indicate an overresponsive immune system. The involvement of integrins to the inflammatory process is of particular interest to study co-author ...

Biomarkers allow doctors to match therapy to patient

... with sunitinib, the ccEPC increases paralleled the rise in plasma VEGF levels; they decreased during the two-week off period, Vroling reports. monocytes and hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) demonstrated the opposite pattern, according to Vroling. In a preliminary analysis, we found a ...

"IL-6 contributes to an activation of monocytes in the blood, and enables antigen presenting cells to activate T cells as ...

T cells activated to fight HIV basis for dendritic cell therapeutic vaccine

... a substance that binds to certain immune cells, and interferon gamma were added to dendritic cells. In the study, white blood cells called monocytes were obtained from both HIV patients and individuals not infected with the virus. In the laboratory, the researchers coaxed them to differentiate ...
