The sensitivities of the DM96 and light microscopy differentials for detecting activated B-lymphocytes
were 32% and 69% respectively.
contributions to human autoimmune disease.
We used phytohemagglutinin P (PHA) and concanavalin A (ConA) as T-lymphocyte mitogens, and lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and phorbol 12,13-dibutyrate (PDB) as B-lymphocyte
But when a single B-lymphocyte
undergoes a genetic mutation, it may no longer need HIV to trigger its division, he speculates.
Anthera's Phase 2 product candidate, A-623, targets elevated levels of B-lymphocyte
stimulator (BAFF) which has been associated with a variety of B-Cell mediated autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus).
activating factor in systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis in relation to autoantibody levels, disease measures and time.
Rituximab is a monoclonal antibody directed against CD20, a surface antigen expressed in cells of B-lymphocyte
and an increase in the B-lymphocyte
Sidman uses a strain of transgenic mice that always develop B-lymphocyte
Blisibimod targets elevated levels of B-lymphocyte
stimulator (BAFF) which have been associated with a variety of B-cell mediated autoimmune diseases, including systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus) and rheumatoid arthritis.
To characterize the immune response in inoculation eschars during ATBF and Mediterranean spotted fever, paraffin sections were stained with the polymorphonuclear leukocyte marker CD 15 (Immunotech, Marseille, France), the macrophage marker CD68 (Dako, Trappes, France), the T-lymphocyte marker CD3 (Dako), the B-lymphocyte
marker CD20 (L26, Dako), and the endothelial cell marker Factor VIII-related antigen (Dako) by using the peroxidase-based method described above.
Detection of a monoclonal component (the immunoglobulin product of a clone of plasma cells) in the serum and/or urine is an important part of the laboratory evaluation of a patient with a plasma cell or B-lymphocyte
