  • reactions
  • In contrast, serum sickness-like reactions are specific drug reactions that are not associated with circulating immune complexes. (wikipedia.org)
  • In vivo hepatic drug biotransformation studies have shown greater lymphocyte killing in subjects with a known history of serum sickness-like reactions than in control subjects. (wikipedia.org)
  • Case reports have noted the absence of fever in serum sickness-like reactions to amoxicillin. (wikipedia.org)
  • While optimal treatment strategies for serum sickness-like reactions are not clearly defined in the literature, discontinuation of the suspected agent combined with use of antihistamines and corticosteroids for symptom control is an appropriate therapeutic route. (wikipedia.org)
  • They can also cause more reactions resulting in typical symptoms of serum sickness. (wikipedia.org)
  • freeze
  • We routinely freeze cells in 10%DMSO - 90%FCS, and have NOT been successful in freezing hybridoma cells that have been adapted to serum free conditions. (bio.net)
