All the diabetic sera inhibited the mRNA expression of the osteogenic differentiation-associated genes relative to their expression in MSCs treated with normal human serum. Sera with higher concentrations HbA1c more effectively reduced the expression of these genes after the MSCs had been cultured for about 21 days (Figure 4(b)).

Quantification of the ADCC Activity of Rituximab in the Presence of Normal Human Serum. Vials of RTU iLite effector cells and vials of RTU [CD20.sup.+] target cells were thawed, and the effector cells and target cells were mixed at an E:T ratio of 3: 1 and incubated for 4 hours in the presence of increasing concentrations of rituximab in either culture medium +10% FBS alone or together with a 1/20 final dilution of a pool of normal human serum (NHS) or sera from individual normal donors prior to the sequential determination of FL and NL activity.
