(From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)Thyrotropin-Releasing Hormone: A tripeptide that stimulates the release of THYROTROPIN and PROLACTIN. It is synthesized by the neurons in the PARAVENTRICULAR NUCLEUS of the HYPOTHALAMUS. After being released into the pituitary portal circulation, TRH (was called TRF) stimulates the release of TSH and PRL from the ANTERIOR PITUITARY GLAND.Thyrotropin: A glycoprotein hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). Thyrotropin stimulates THYROID GLAND by increasing the iodide transport, synthesis and release of thyroid hormones (THYROXINE and TRIIODOTHYRONINE). Thyrotropin consists of two noncovalently linked subunits, alpha and beta. Within a species, the alpha subunit is common in the pituitary glycoprotein hormones (TSH; LUTEINIZING HORMONE and FSH), but the beta subunit is unique and confers its biological specificity.Thyroid Gland: A highly vascularized endocrine gland consisting of two lobes joined by a thin band of tissue with one lobe on each side of the TRACHEA. It secretes THYROID HORMONES from the follicular cells and CALCITONIN from the parafollicular cells thereby regulating METABOLISM and CALCIUM level in blood, respectively.Thyroxine: The major hormone derived from the thyroid gland. Thyroxine is synthesized via the iodination of tyrosines (MONOIODOTYROSINE) and the coupling of iodotyrosines (DIIODOTYROSINE) in the THYROGLOBULIN. Thyroxine is released from thyroglobulin by proteolysis and secreted into the blood. Thyroxine is peripherally deiodinated to form TRIIODOTHYRONINE which exerts a broad spectrum of stimulatory effects on cell metabolism.Thyroid Hormones: Natural hormones secreted by the THYROID GLAND, such as THYROXINE, and their synthetic analogs.Receptors, Thyrotropin-Releasing Hormone: Cell surface receptors that bind thyrotropin releasing hormone (TRH) with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Activated TRH receptors in the anterior pituitary stimulate the release of thyrotropin (thyroid stimulating hormone, TSH); TRH receptors on neurons mediate neurotransmission by TRH.Triiodothyronine: A T3 thyroid hormone normally synthesized and secreted by the thyroid gland in much smaller quantities than thyroxine (T4). Most T3 is derived from peripheral monodeiodination of T4 at the 5' position of the outer ring of the iodothyronine nucleus. The hormone finally delivered and used by the tissues is mainly T3.Pituitary Gland: A small, unpaired gland situated in the SELLA TURCICA. It is connected to the HYPOTHALAMUS by a short stalk which is called the INFUNDIBULUM.Iodide Peroxidase: A hemeprotein that catalyzes the oxidation of the iodide radical to iodine with the subsequent iodination of many organic compounds, particularly proteins. EC 1.11.1.8.Plasticizers: Materials incorporated mechanically in plastics (usually PVC) to increase flexibility, workability or distensibility; due to the non-chemical inclusion, plasticizers leach out from the plastic and are found in body fluids and the general environment.Diethylhexyl Phthalate: An ester of phthalic acid. It appears as a light-colored, odorless liquid and is used as a plasticizer for many resins and elastomers.Uterine Cervicitis: Inflammation of the UTERINE CERVIX.Sensitivity and Specificity: Binary classification measures to assess test results. Sensitivity or recall rate is the proportion of true positives. Specificity is the probability of correctly determining the absence of a condition. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)Epstein-Barr Virus Infections: Infection with human herpesvirus 4 (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN); which may facilitate the development of various lymphoproliferative disorders. These include BURKITT LYMPHOMA (African type), INFECTIOUS MONONUCLEOSIS, and oral hairy leukoplakia (LEUKOPLAKIA, HAIRY).Epstein-Barr Virus Nuclear Antigens: Nuclear antigens encoded by VIRAL GENES found in HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 4. At least six nuclear antigens have been identified.BaltimorePancreaticoduodenectomy: The excision of the head of the pancreas and the encircling loop of the duodenum to which it is connected.Burkitt Lymphoma: A form of undifferentiated malignant LYMPHOMA usually found in central Africa, but also reported in other parts of the world. It is commonly manifested as a large osteolytic lesion in the jaw or as an abdominal mass. B-cell antigens are expressed on the immature cells that make up the tumor in virtually all cases of Burkitt lymphoma. The Epstein-Barr virus (HERPESVIRUS 4, HUMAN) has been isolated from Burkitt lymphoma cases in Africa and it is implicated as the causative agent in these cases; however, most non-African cases are EBV-negative.Antigens, Viral: Substances elaborated by viruses that have antigenic activity.Viral Matrix Proteins: Proteins associated with the inner surface of the lipid bilayer of the viral envelope. These proteins have been implicated in control of viral transcription and may possibly serve as the "glue" that binds the nucleocapsid to the appropriate membrane site during viral budding from the host cell.Peyer's Patches: Lymphoid tissue on the mucosa of the small intestine.Immunophenotyping: Process of classifying cells of the immune system based on structural and functional differences. The process is commonly used to analyze and sort T-lymphocytes into subsets based on CD antigens by the technique of flow cytometry.Antigens, CD8: Differentiation antigens found on thymocytes and on cytotoxic and suppressor T-lymphocytes. CD8 antigens are members of the immunoglobulin supergene family and are associative recognition elements in MHC (Major Histocompatibility Complex) Class I-restricted interactions.Antigens, CD3: Complex of at least five membrane-bound polypeptides in mature T-lymphocytes that are non-covalently associated with one another and with the T-cell receptor (RECEPTORS, ANTIGEN, T-CELL). The CD3 complex includes the gamma, delta, epsilon, zeta, and eta chains (subunits). When antigen binds to the T-cell receptor, the CD3 complex transduces the activating signals to the cytoplasm of the T-cell. The CD3 gamma and delta chains (subunits) are separate from and not related to the gamma/delta chains of the T-cell receptor (RECEPTORS, ANTIGEN, T-CELL, GAMMA-DELTA).CD40 Ligand: A membrane glycoprotein and differentiation antigen expressed on the surface of T-cells that binds to CD40 ANTIGENS on B-LYMPHOCYTES and induces their proliferation. Mutation of the gene for CD40 ligand is a cause of HYPER-IGM IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME, TYPE 1.CD4-CD8 Ratio: Ratio of T-LYMPHOCYTES that express the CD4 ANTIGEN to those that express the CD8 ANTIGEN. This value is commonly assessed in the diagnosis and staging of diseases affecting the IMMUNE SYSTEM including HIV INFECTIONS.Antigens, CD40: A member of the tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily with specificity for CD40 LIGAND. It is found on mature B-LYMPHOCYTES and some EPITHELIAL CELLS, lymphoid DENDRITIC CELLS. Evidence suggests that CD40-dependent activation of B-cells is important for generation of memory B-cells within the germinal centers. Mutations of the gene for CD40 antigen result in HYPER-IGM IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME, TYPE 3. Signaling of the receptor occurs through its association with TNF RECEPTOR-ASSOCIATED FACTORS.CD4-Positive T-Lymphocytes: A critical subpopulation of T-lymphocytes involved in the induction of most immunological functions. The HIV virus has selective tropism for the T4 cell which expresses the CD4 phenotypic marker, a receptor for HIV. In fact, the key element in the profound immunosuppression seen in HIV infection is the depletion of this subset of T-lymphocytes.Lymphocytes: White blood cells formed in the body's lymphoid tissue. The nucleus is round or ovoid with coarse, irregularly clumped chromatin while the cytoplasm is typically pale blue with azurophilic (if any) granules. Most lymphocytes can be classified as either T or B (with subpopulations of each), or NATURAL KILLER CELLS.Antigens, CD34: Glycoproteins found on immature hematopoietic cells and endothelial cells. They are the only molecules to date whose expression within the blood system is restricted to a small number of progenitor cells in the bone marrow.

When is a heterophile antibody not a heterophile antibody? When it is an antibody against a specific immunogen. (1/250)

Heterophile antibodies are antibodies produced against poorly defined antigens. These are generally weak antibodies with multispecific activities. Human anti-animal antibodies that develop as a result of treatments with animal immunoglobulins are antibodies with strong avidities, produced against well-defined antigens. Although heterophile antibodies and human anti-animal antibodies interfere with immunological assays by similar mechanisms, modes for identifying the sources of the antibodies and for circumventing or retarding the interference may differ. Unfortunately, there has not been a well-organized attempt to encourage correct definition of these antibodies. This problem of inexact definition is highlighted by recent articles in this Journal. In the present discussion, we examine the history leading to this problem and discuss the origins and the reasons that the nature of the antibody is important for rectifying the problem. We propose a simple nomenclature for general usage that should appropriately characterize these antibodies in most cases.  (+info)

Heterotypic protection and induction of a broad heterotypic neutralization response by rotavirus-like particles. (2/250)

The recognition that rotaviruses are the major cause of life-threatening diarrheal disease and significant morbidity in young children has focused efforts on disease prevention and control of these viruses. Although the correlates of protection in children remain unclear, some studies indicate that serotype-specific antibody is important. Based on this premise, current live attenuated reassortant rotavirus vaccines include the four predominant serotypes of virus. We are evaluating subunit rotavirus vaccines, 2/6/7-VLPs and 2/4/6/7-VLPs, that contain only a single VP7 of serotype G1 or G3. In mice immunized parenterally twice, G3 virus-like particles (VLPs) induced a homotypic, whereas G1 VLPs induced a homotypic and heterotypic (G3) serum neutralizing immune response. Administration of three doses of G1 or G3 VLPs induced serum antibodies that neutralized five of seven different serotype test viruses. The inclusion of VP4 in the VLPs was not essential for the induction of heterotypic neutralizing antibody in mice. To confirm these results in another species, rabbits were immunized parenterally with two doses of 2/4/6/7-VLPs containing a G3 or G1 VP7, sequentially with G3 VLPs followed by G1 (G3/G1) VLPs, or with live or psoralen-inactivated SA11. High-titer homotypic serum neutralizing antibody was induced in all rabbits, and low-level heterotypic neutralizing antibody was induced in a subset of rabbits. The rabbits immunized with the G1 or G3/G1 VLPs in QS-21 were challenged orally with live G3 ALA rotavirus. Protection levels were similar in rabbits immunized with homotypic G3 2/4/6/7-VLPs, heterotypic G1 2/4/6/7-VLPs, or G3/G1 2/4/6/7-VLPs. Therefore, G1 2/4/6/7-VLPs can induce protective immunity against a live heterotypic rotavirus challenge in an adjuvant with potential use in humans. Following challenge, broad serum heterotypic neutralizing antibody responses were detected in rabbits parenterally immunized with G1, G3/G1, or G3 VLPs but not with SA11. Immunization with VLPs may provide sufficient priming of the immune system to induce protective anamnestic heterotypic neutralizing antibody responses upon subsequent rotavirus infection. Therefore, a limited number of serotypes of VLPs may be sufficient to provide a broadly protective subunit vaccine.  (+info)

Enhancement of haemolysis by Newcastle disease virus (NDV) after pre-treatment with heterophile antibody and complement. (3/250)

Pre-treatment of Newcastle disease virus (NDV) with fresh human plasma enhances its haemolytic (HL) capacity by several factors. The effect is due to complement activation by the heterophile anti-chick antibody present in human plasma. All the adult human plasmas tested were effective, also 91/100 human cord blood sera. The antibody was mainly of the IgM class. The enhanced HL was due to integration and transference of the complement 'holed' virus envelope membrane and subsequent leakage of haemoglobin. High concentration of activated complement destroys the integrity of the virus enevelope. Treatment of chick erythrocytes and fibroblasts with human plasma also produced lysis of the cells.  (+info)

Heterophile antibodies to bovine and caprine proteins causing false-positive human immunodeficiency virus type 1 and other enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay results. (4/250)

Heterophile antibodies are a well-recognized cause of erroneous results in immunoassays. We describe here a 22-month-old child with heterophile antibodies reactive with bovine serum albumin and caprine proteins causing false-positive results to human immunodeficiency virus type 1 and other infectious serology testing.  (+info)

Heterophile antibodies segregate in families and are associated with protection from type 1 diabetes. (5/250)

Markedly elevated levels of serum IL-4 were reported previously in 50% of a small group of type 1 diabetes nonprogessors. To determine the patterns of expression for this phenotype, a larger cohort of 58 families containing type 1 diabetic patients was examined. Analysis of the two-site ELISA assay used to measure serum IL-4 revealed evidence for heterophile antibodies, i.e., nonanalyte substances in serum capable of binding antibodies mutivalently and providing erroneous analyte (e.g., IL-4) quantification. Interestingly, relatives without type 1 diabetes were significantly more likely to have this phenotype than were patients with the disease (P = 0.003). In addition, the trait appears to have clustered within certain families and was associated with the protective MHC allele DQB1*0602 (P = 0.008). These results suggest that heterophile antibodies represent an in vivo trait associated with self-tolerance and nonprogression to diabetes.  (+info)

An immunoadhesin incorporating the molecule OX-2 is a potent immunosuppressant that prolongs allo- and xenograft survival. (6/250)

We have established that, in mice receiving donor-specific immunization by the portal vein, the increased graft survival seen is associated with the increased expression of a molecule (OX-2) on a subpopulation of dendritic cells (DC), and polarization of cytokine production to type 2 cytokines on Ag-specific restimulation of cells from these mice. Furthermore, infusion of a mAb to OX-2 blocks both the increased graft survival and the altered cytokine production seen. We have constructed an immunoadhesin in which the extracellular domain of OX-2 is linked to the murine IgG2a Fc region, and we have expressed this molecule (OX-2:Fc) in a eukaryotic (baculovirus) expression system. Incubation of lymphocytes with 50 ng/ml OX-2:Fc inhibits a primary mixed lymphocyte reaction in vitro, as assayed by proliferation and induction of cytotoxic T cells, and also alters cytokine production with decreased IL-2 (IFN-gamma) production and increased IL-4 (IL-10) production. Similarly, in vivo infusion of OX-2:Fc promotes increased allo- and xenograft (both skin and renal grafts) survival and decreases the Ab response to sheep erythrocytes. Our data suggest this molecule might have clinical importance in allo- and xenotransplantation.  (+info)

Accelerated development and aging of the immune system in p53-deficient mice. (7/250)

Development and aging of the immune system lead to an accumulation of memory T cells over the long term. The predominance of T cells of the memory phenotype in the T cell population induces an age-related decline in protective immune responses. We found that development and aging of the immune system were accelerated in p53-deficient (p53-/-) mice; the accumulation of memory T cells was spontaneously accelerated, and a strong T cell-dependent Ab response and Th2 cytokine expression (IL-4, IL-6, and IL-10) were induced by Ag stimulation in young p53-/- mice in the developmental stage. The high T cell proliferative response in the young mice rapidly progressed to a depressed proliferative response in adult mice. It was suggested that the loss of regulation of the cell cycle, DNA repair, and apoptosis by p53 deficiency potentially leads to immunosenescence with the accumulation of memory T cells.  (+info)

Accommodated xenografts survive in the presence of anti-donor antibodies and complement that precipitate rejection of naive xenografts. (8/250)

Hamster hearts transplanted into transiently complement-depleted and continuously cyclosporin A (CyA)-immunosuppressed rats survive long-term despite deposition of anti-donor IgM Abs and complement on the graft vascular endothelium. This phenomenon is referred to as "accommodation." The hypothesis tested here is that accommodated xenografts are resistant to IgM Abs and complement that could result in rejection of naive xenografts. After first hamster hearts had been surviving in cobra venom factor (CVF) + CyA-treated rats for 10 days, a time when the anti-donor IgM Ab level was maximal and complement activity had returned to approximately 50% of pretreatment levels, naive hamster hearts or hamster hearts that had been accommodating in another rat for 14 days were transplanted into those rats carrying the surviving first graft. The naive hearts were all hyperacutely rejected. In contrast, a majority of regrafted accommodating hearts survived long-term. There was widespread Ab and activated complement deposition on the vascular endothelium of accommodating first hearts, second accommodating hearts, and rejected second naive hearts. However, only the rejected naive hearts showed extensive endothelial cell damage, myocardial necrosis, fibrin deposition, and other signs of inflammation. Accommodating first and second hearts but not rejected second naive hearts expressed high levels of the protective genes A20, heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), bcl-2, and bcl-xL. These data demonstrate that accommodated xenografts become resistant to effects of anti-donor IgM Abs and complement that normally mediate rejection of xenografts. We hypothesize that this resistance involves expression by accommodated xenografts of protective genes.  (+info)

The sheep cell agglutination test or heterophile antibody reaction, as it is also called, is a laboratory procedure of considerable value in clinical medicine. In this country one frequently speaks alternately of the Paul-Bunnell test; and in Europe it is often referred to as the Hanganutziu-Deicher reaction. In 1911 Forssman1 recognized the nonspecificity of certain antigen-antibody reactions. The terms "heterogenetic," "heterophilic," or "heterophile" are applied to those antibodies that react with an antigen (sheep erythrocytes) which seemingly had nothing to do with their development. One type of heterophile antibody is known as the Forssman antibody, but there are other varieties ...

Heterophile definition is - of, relating to, or being an antibody circulating in blood serum that is reactive with antigen originating in a different species. How to use heterophile in a sentence.
Interference from heterophilic antibodies. Heterophilic antibodies are found in human patient serum and plasma. They are poly-reactive antibodies recognising IgG from different animal species. These antibodies are non-specific, have no defined antigen and can bind to the Fc region of the assay antibody causing a false positive test signal. Heterophilic antibodies found in patient serum react with mouse (HAMA) and rat IgG. Since conventional specific and high affinity monoclonal antibodies can only be obtained from the mouse and rat, heterophilic antibodies can be a limitation in diagnostic tests. Chimeric monoclonal antibodies (in particular human chimeric antibodies) are a solution to this problem.. ...
In most cases of infectious mononucleosis, the clinical diagnosis can be made from the characteristic triad of fever, pharyngitis, and lymphadenopathy lasting for 1 to 4 weeks. Serologic test results include a normal to moderately elevated white blood cell count, an increased total number of lymphocytes, greater than 10% atypical lymphocytes, and a positive reaction to a "mono spot" test. In patients with symptoms compatible with infectious mononucleosis, a positive Paul-Bunnell heterophile antibody test result is diagnostic, and no further testing is necessary. Moderate-to-high levels of heterophile antibodies are seen during the first month of illness and decrease rapidly after week 4. False-positive results may be found in a small number of patients, and false-negative results may be obtained in 10% to 15% of patients, primarily in children younger than 10 years of age. True outbreaks of infectious mononucleosis are extremely rare. A substantial number of pseudo-outbreaks have been linked to ...

Human anti-mouse antibody (HAMA) is an antibody found in humans which reacts to immunoglobins found in mice. Antibody treatment is a type of therapy that is used to treat certain types of cancer and immune disorders. Antibodies are proteins which are naturally formed by the body in response to a foreign substance, known as an antigen. Antibodies can also be grown outside of the patients body and injected into them to help aid the immune system to fight disease. These types of antibodies are typically called monoclonal antibodies because they are created to target one specific antigen. Herceptin and Avastin, two widely used cancer fighting drugs, are examples of monoclonal antibodies. For several decades, and until recently, mice were used extensively in the production of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs). But the treatments were not as effective as doctors had hoped. One problem was that patients reacted to the mouse antibodies as if they were a foreign substance, and created a new set of antibodies ...

Interpretation of hormone levels in older patients: points for consideration. (Sztefko and Szybowska 2012) Download. Blood hormone and tumor marker concentrations are usually determined by immunochemical methods which are based on an unique reaction between antigen and assay capture antibody. Despite the speed and simplicity of assays performance on automatic immunochemistry platforms, the interpretation of final results requires a deep knowledge of method fallibility. General lack of immunoassays standardization, presence of cross-reacting substances in patients sample, limitation of free hormones measurement due to abnormal analyte binding protein concentrations, assay interferences due to patients autoantibodies, and heterophilic antibodies, as well as proper interpretation of very low- and very high-sample analyte levels, are the main points discussed in respect to hormones and tumor markers measurement in geriatric population.. Laboratory values in fit aging individuals--sexagenarians ...
ABSTRACT: Clinically significant false-positive human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) test results are rare. However, some individuals have circulating factors in their serum (eg, heterophilic antibodies or nonactive forms of hCG) that interact with the hCG antibody and cause unusual or unexpected test results. False-positive and false-negative test results can occur with any specimen, and caution should be exercised when clinical findings and laboratory results are discordant. Methods to rule out the presence of interfering substances include using a urine test, rerunning the assay with serial ... ...
Limitations: Heterophilic antibodies in human serum can react with the immunoglobulins included in the assay components causing interference with in vitro immunoassays. Samples from patients routinely exposed to animals or animal serum products can demonstrate this type of interference potentially causing an anomalous result. For diagnostic purposes, the results obtained from this assay should always be used in combination with the clinical examination, patient medical history, and other findings ...

The symptoms and signs of infectious mononucleosis are variable and imitative of many common diseases. The diagnosis is made by the laboratory findings of a lymphocytosis with atypical cells and of an increased titer of the heterophile antibody (Paul-Bunnell test). Often these tests should be repeated, for a single negative result does not rule out the presence of the disease. Infectious mononucleosis should be suspected in every case of sore throat and in every acute illness with lymph node enlargement and/or splenomegaly, but unfortunately no single physical sign is so characteristic that its finding invites the repetition of the diagnostic ...
Preparations useful in the diagnosis of infectious mononucleosis are disclosed. Horse and sheep erythrocytes are purified and essentially homogenous glycoproteins are extracted.

IgM antibodies specific for Epstein-Barr (E.B.) virus were demonstrable in all but one out of 46 patients diagnosed as having infectious mononucleosis wihout heterophil antibodies; cytomegalovirus aetiology was excluded. In all but two cases the highest titre was found in the first sample. In 21 patients a significant decrease was seen within a few weeks. IgG antibodies to E.B. virus, mostly remaining at a constant level, were demonstrable in all cases. IgM antibodies to E.B. virus were found in only five out of 300 controls.. The results suggest that in a disease similar to infectious mononucleosis without heterophil antibodies testing of transient E.B. virus-specific IgM antibodies makes a rapid aetiological diagnosis possible and that in clinically well-defined cases viruses other than E.B. virus and cytomegalovirus are unlikely to be causal agents.. ...

Citation: N/A Interpretive Summary: Studies from our laboratory have shown that products (lymphokines) released by a type of white blood cell (the T lymphocyte) can stimulate a second type of white blood cell called the heterophil. Heterophils function by eating and destroying foreign objects, including bacteria like Salmonella, that invade the body of a baby chicken. The objective of this experiment was to test the ability of a specific type of lymphokine known as interferon-gamma to stimulate the eating and killing functions of heterophils from baby chickens. The results showed that the heterophils treated with interferon-gamma were able to eat and kill more bacteria than the heterophils that were not treated with interferon-gamma. These results are important because we now of know of a specific lymphokine that can stimulate one part of the baby chickens immune system. This kind of treatment should make the baby chicken able to fight bacterial infections early in life. Technical Abstract: ...
Infectious Mononucleosis in Adolescents What is infectious mononucleosis? Infectious mononucleosis, also known as mononucleosis, mono, or glandular fever, is characterized by swollen lymph glands and chronic fatigue. What causes infectious mononucleosis?

Consider the following statistics: In the US, almost 95 percent of adults between 35 and 40...
Severity of disease is markedly increased when infection with dengue virus type 2 (DENV-2) follows infection with DENV-1. Studies have shown that heterologous neutralizing antibody titers are inversely correlated with severity of a second infection. If this mechanism controlled disease severity in Cuba, heterotypic antibody titers should have declined over time. To determine whether phenotypic changes in dengue antibodies occur over time, we analyzed serum samples collected 4-8 and 20-22 years after DENV-1 infection. We found a significant increase in mean titer of homologous DENV-1 neutralizing antibodies and a significant decrease in heterologous antibodies to 1 of 2 genotypes of DENV-2 virus (the American genotype). Asian DENV-2 viruses were not neutralized during either interval; however, the American genotype underwent phenotypic changes in heterotypic viral neutralizing antibodies in the predicted direction. This finding may be related to the time-dependent changes in severity of disease found

Two-site immunometric assays for multideterminant antigens are described in which the antigen is reacted with an immobilized monoclonal antibody directed against one antigen determinant and a second monoclonal antibody that is directed against a distinct antigenic determinant and is of a different class or subclass than the immobilized monoclonal antibody. The second monoclonal antibody is labeled in direct versions of the assay and is reacted with a labeled antibody against it in indirect versions of the assay. The immobilizing medium and classes (subclasses) of the antibodies may be selected so as to reduce the likelihood of nonspecific binding enhance sensitivity and/or permit signal amplification.

Infectious Mononucleosis. Also known as mononucleosis or mono Pfeiffers disease or glandular fever, infectious mononucleosis can be identified by inflamed lymph glands and constant fatigue. The disease is named so as the amount of mononuclear leukocytes which belong to white cells increase in number. The cause of the disease is EBV (Epstein - Barr virus) or in some cases cytomegalovirus. Both these viruses belong to the family of herpes simplex. According to statistic majority of the adults in the United States are exposed to the virus Epstein - Barr, a very widespread virus. Although the virus does not show any visible affects in children but it does in adolescents which can lead to infectious mononucleosis in nearly fifty percent of cases of exposure to the virus.. The other virus called cytomegalovirus which also belongs to the family of herpes simplex causes the cells to become enlarged. According to statistics, about eighty percent of adolescents infected with this virus generally dont ...
A: On the basis of clinical experience, supportive care is recommended for patients with infectious mononucleosis. Acetaminophen or nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents are recommended to manage fever, throat discomfort, and malaise. Adequate fluid intake and nutrition should also be encouraged. Although getting adequate rest is prudent, bed rest is unnecessary. Patients may excrete high levels of EBV in their saliva in the year after onset of infectious mononucleosis, but special precautions against transmission of EBV are not necessary, since most people are EBV seropositive. To minimize the risk of splenic rupture, patients may consider a return to contact sports after a minimum of 3 weeks after onset of symptoms or after they are afebrile, lack clinical symptoms or findings, and feel well enough to play - whichever comes first ...
Most people who have infectious mononucleosis, or mono, get it only once. Rarely, however, mononucleosis symptoms may recur months or even years later.. Most cases of mononucleosis are caused by infection with the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Once youre infected with EBV, you carry the virus - usually in a dormant state - for the rest of your life. Periodically, however, the virus may reactivate. When this happens, the virus can be detected in your saliva - but youre not likely to become ill. Rarely, reactivated EBV may cause illness in people who have weak immune systems, such as those who have AIDS.. Mononucleosis rarely leads to a serious condition called chronic active EBV infection, which is characterized by persistent illness more than six months after the initial mononucleosis diagnosis.. If youre experiencing signs or symptoms of mononucleosis - such as fatigue, weakness, fever, sore throat and swollen lymph nodes - and youve had mono before, consult your doctor to determine the cause ...

In recent years, there have been many advances in the field of biotechnology. With these advances, have come the arguments of how this information should be used, and how ethical these new processes might be. One of these processes includes xenotransplantation. Xenotransplantation is a process in which animal organs are used for vital organ transplants to humans. This process is controversial for obvious reasons, but requires further examination. Besides just vital organs, there are many other types of transplants that can also be performed. These transplants include skin grafts, corneal transplants, and bone transplants. This is done to try to solve the worldwide problem of the shortage in human organs. The amount of organs available cannot compare to the amount of organs needed, therefore xenotransplantation is performed, and a human can receive a vital organ or other life saving material from an animal. Xenotransplantation could also be used to cure other diseases where there is a shortage of ...

Infectious mononucleosis was first described by Sprunt and Evans in the Bulletin of the Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1920. They described the clinical characteristics of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) infectious mononucleosis.
Infectious mononucleosis is a very widespread viral disease caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. The disease is also known as EBV Infectious Mononucleosis or Pfeiffers Disease or Filatovs Disease and colloquially as kissing disease, mono (North America) and as glandular fever in other English-speaking countries. The disease is characterized by fever, sore throat and fatigue.

Monos real name is infectious mononucleosis (Epstein-Barr virus). You can only get it once in your life & can take several weeks to recover.
First, an explanation of why mono is also called the kissing disease. Merely being in the presence of someone with mono wont put you at risk, even if youre both in the same room - you need to be actively swapping spit with them to be exposed to the virus. Kissing is probably the most famous way for two people to exchange saliva, but sharing cups, eating utensils, or toothbrushes can do it, too. After exposure to the virus, symptoms could show up in 4 to 6 weeks.. Second, an explanation of why mono can be so terrible. While not all teenagers and young adults who are infected with EBV will develop symptoms, those who do probably wont enjoy the experience. Symptoms include extreme fatigue, head and body aches, sore throat, and fever. Its bad enough to have those symptoms for a few days, but mono might seem to go on and on with no end in sight. Most people are better in 2 to 4 weeks, but even then it could take another few weeks to get back to 100 percent. And some unlucky people can experience ...

ISIS Sustainable Science Audit #2. August 2000. Xenotransplantation How Bad Science and Big Business Put the World at Risk from Viral Pandemics. Dr. Mae-Wan Ho. Director. Institute of Science in Society. PO Box 32097. London NW1 0XR. UK. Summary. Xenotransplantation - the transplant of animal organs into human beings - is a multi-billion dollar business venture built on the anticipated sale of patented techniques and organs, as well as drugs to overcome organ-rejection (1). It has received strong criticism and opposition from scientists warning of risks of new viruses crossing from animal organs to human subjects and from there to infect the population at large. Our regulators, however, are adopting a permissive attitude for clinical trials to go ahead. Scientific reports of virus crossing from pig to human cells (2), and of viral infections in humans subjects transplanted with baboon livers (3), are being ignored or dismissed, while inconclusive, widely faulted papers are taken as evidence that ...

Now, most adults whether they ever developed full-blown Mononucleosis or never had any known symptoms typically have protective antibodies to the Epstein-Barr virus. This is a good thing because if you have antibodies to the Epstein-Barr virus you should be immune to being infected and becoming sick.
Mononucleosis often referred to as mono, the kissing disease, or glandular fever, is a viral infection commonly caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. Although, it

[more ▼]. Introduction: Beyond pregnancy, persistent low levels of hCG may be associated with various benign and malignant conditions, i.e. quiescent gestational trophoblastic disease (QTD), raised pituitary hCG or false positive elevation caused by circulating heterophilic antibodies. This situation requires a clinico-biological approach in order to avoid misunderstandings that could lead to inappropriate diagnostic or therapeutic attitudes. Observation: A 23 years old woman (GOPO status) consulted his gynaecologist because of persistent abdominal pain. She was diagnosed of having trophoblastic disease on the basis of persistently positive human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) test (Roche Modular) results, in the absence of pregnancy. Persistent ...
In small children, the course of the disease is frequently asymptomatic. Some adult patients suffer fever, tiredness, lassitude (abnormal fatigue), depression, lethargy, and chronic lymph node swelling, for months or years. This variant of mononucleosis has been referred to as chronic EBV syndrome or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), although CFS is a distinct condition from IM. Still, current studies suggest there is an association between infectious mononucleosis and CFS.[3] In case of a weakening of the immune system, a reactivation of the Epstein-Barr virus is possible; in CFS there is evidence of immune activation also. "Chronic fatigue states" as defined by the CDC criteria for CFS, appear to occur in 10% of those who contract mononucleosis.[3] Chronic fatigue may then be a rather common side effect of infectious mononucleosis. On the other hand, studies conducted by the CDC and others[who?] have discounted a link between EBV and CFS.. Perhaps a majority of chronic post infectious "fatigue ...

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:. I. To define the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of Combotox (deglycosylated ricin A chain-conjugated anti-CD19/anti-CD22 immunotoxins) when added to high-dose cytarabine during salvage therapy for adult patients with relapsed or refractory B-lineage acute lymphoblastic leukemia.. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:. I. To evaluate the efficacy of this regimen. II. To assess for the presence of a postulated CD34+/CD38-/low/CD19+ leukemic stem cell phenotype in the bone marrow at time of relapse and to assess its association with treatment outcome.. III. To determine the development of human mouse or ricin antibodies (human anti-mouse antibodies [HAMA]/human anti-ricin antibodies [HARA]).. IV. To determine the pharmacokinetic characteristics of Combotox. V. To evaluate the value of fractional excretion of sodium (FeNa) as early marker of toxicity.. OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study of deglycosylated ricin A chain-conjugated anti-CD19/anti-CD22 immunotoxins.. Patients receive high-dose ...
