Christopher Tipper et al.
Journal of virology, 87(7), 3628-3639 (2013-01-25)
After entering a host cell, retroviruses such as simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) uncoat, disassembling the viral capsid. Rates of uncoating that are too high and too low can be detrimental to the efficiency of infection. Rapid uncoating typically leads to...

Initially, children were thought to be spared from disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). However, a month into the epidemic, a novel multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) emerged. Herein, we report on the immune profiles...

The development of alternative therapeutic strategies to tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-blocking antibodies for the treatment of inflammatory diseases has generated increasing interest. In particular, selective inhibition of TNF receptor 1 (TNFR1) promises a more precise intervention, tackling only the pro-inflammatory...

Colloids and surfaces. B, Biointerfaces, 179, 114-120 (2019-04-06)
Biomaterial implants often lead to specific tissue reactions that could compromise their bio-integration and/or optimal cellular interactions. Polyurethanes (PU) are of particular interest as coatings to mask CoCr's bioactivity, since they are generally more biocompatible than metal substrates, present a...

mSphere, 3(1) (2018-02-13)
Recent reports in the scientific literature have suggested that anti-dengue virus (DENV) and anti-West Nile virus (WNV) immunity exacerbates Zika virus (ZIKV) pathogenesis in vitro and in vivo in mouse models. Large populations of immune individuals exist for a related...

Scientific reports, 6, 36905-36905 (2016-11-23)
Infliximab is an antibody that neutralizes TNF-α and is used principally by systemic administration to treat many inflammatory disorders. We prepared the antibody mimetic Fab-PEG-Fab (FpFinfliximab) for direct intravitreal injection to assess whether such formulations have biological activity and potential...

In late 2019, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was first detected in China and has since caused a pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The first case of COVID-19 in New York City was officially confirmed on 1 March...

To transform the human anti-rabies virus glycoprotein (anti-RABVG) single-chain variable fragment (scFv) into a Fab fragment and to analyze its immunological activity. The Fab gene was amplified using overlap PCR and inserted into the vector pComb3XSS. The recombinant vector was...
Fatima Amanat et al.
Cell, 184(15), 3936-3948 (2021-07-01)
In this study we profiled vaccine-induced polyclonal antibodies as well as plasmablast-derived mAbs from individuals who received SARS-CoV-2 spike mRNA vaccine. Polyclonal antibody responses in vaccinees were robust and comparable to or exceeded those seen after natural infection. However, the...

Clinical cancer research : an official journal of the American Association for Cancer Research, 26(15), 3999-4009 (2020-01-19)
Probody therapeutic CX-072 is a protease-activatable antibody that is cross-reactive with murine and human programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1). CX-072 can be activated in vivo by proteases present in the tumor microenvironment, thereby potentially reducing peripheral, anti-PD-L1-mediated toxicities. To study its...

Colloids and surfaces. B, Biointerfaces, 128, 132-139 (2015-03-04)
Selective targeting of tumor cells by nanoparticle-based drug delivery systems is highly desirable because it maximizes the drug concentration at the desired target while simultaneously protecting the surrounding healthy tissues. Here, we show a design for smart nanocarriers based on...
Guangcan Cao et al.
mAbs, 12(1), 1689027-1689027 (2019-12-05)
The immunoglobulin (Ig) CH2 domain is a promising scaffold for the development of candidate therapeutics. We have previously shown that the stability of isolated CH2 could be increased by the introduction of an additional disulfide bond and removal of seven...

mAbs, 7(5), 871-880 (2015-06-06)
Novel oral anticoagulants are effective and safe alternatives to vitamin-K antagonists for anticoagulation therapy. However, anticoagulation therapy in general is associated with an elevated risk of bleeding. Idarucizumab is a reversal agent for the direct thrombin inhibitor, dabigatran etexilate (Pradaxa®)...
