Application

3,3′,5,5′-Tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) is a noncarcinogenic substitute (Ames test negative) for benzidine suitable as peroxidase substrate for use in ELISA procedures. The substrate produces a soluble end product that is pale blue in color and can be read spectrophotometrically at 370 or 620-650 nm. The TMB reaction may be stopped with 2 M H2SO4 (resulting in a yellow color), and read at 450 nm. A sensitive and specific reagent for the detection of blood, assay of hemoglobin, assay of peroxidases.

Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) blasts express high levels of interlekin-3 (IL-3) receptor-α (CD123). CSL360 is a recombinant, chimeric immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1), anti-CD123 monoclonal antibody (MoAb) that neutralizes IL-3 and demonstrates anti-leukemic activity in vitro. This phase 1 study assessed safety...

Nonhuman proteins have valuable therapeutic properties, but their efficacy is limited by neutralizing antibodies. Recombinant immunotoxins (RITs) are potent anticancer agents that have produced many complete remissions in leukemia, but immunogenicity limits the number of doses that can be given...

Eosinophils are multifunctional leukocytes that reside in the gastrointestinal (GI) lamina propria, where their basal function remains largely unexplored. In this study, by examining mice with a selective deficiency of systemic eosinophils (by lineage ablation) or GI eosinophils (eotaxin-1/2 double...
