Enhancing the specificity of T-cell cultures for adoptive immunotherapy of cancer.

Connie Pm Duong, Jennifer A Westwood, Linda J Berry, Phillip K Darcy, Michael H Kershaw,

Adoptive immunotherapy is a promising approach for the treatment of cancer; however, autoimmunity against normal tissue can be a serious complication of this therapy. We hypothesized that T-cell cultures responding maximally only when engaging two antigens would be more specific for tumor cells, and less active against normal cells, as ... Read more >>

Enhancing adoptive immunotherapy of cancer.

Jennifer A Westwood, Linda J Berry, Leanne Xj Wang, Connie Pm Duong, Hollie J Pegram, Phillip K Darcy, Michael H Kershaw,

<h4>Importance of the field</h4>Conventional therapies, including surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy have contributed much to cancer treatment. However, these treatment modalities fail in a large proportion of patients, and there is a great need for effective alternate therapies. Adoptive immunotherapy can be effective against some cancers that have failed all other ... Read more >>

Ambulatory continuous femoral nerve blocks decrease time to discharge readiness after tricompartment total knee arthroplasty: a randomized, triple-masked, placebo-controlled study.

Brian M Ilfeld, Linda T Le, R Scott Meyer, Edward R Mariano, Krista Vandenborne, Pamela W Duncan, Daniel I Sessler, F Kayser Enneking, Jonathan J Shuster, Douglas W Theriaque, Linda F Berry, Eugene H Spadoni, Peter F Gearen,

<h4>Background</h4>The authors tested the hypotheses that, compared with an overnight continuous femoral nerve block (cFNB), a 4-day ambulatory cFNB increases ambulation distance and decreases the time until three specific readiness-for-discharge criteria are met after tricompartment total knee arthroplasty.<h4>Methods</h4>Preoperatively, all patients received a cFNB (n = 50) and perineural ropivacaine 0.2% ...

Potent oncolytic activity of human enteroviruses against human prostate cancer.

Linda J Berry, Gough G Au, Richard D Barry, Darren R Shafren,

<h4>Background</h4>Oncolytic virotherapy offers a unique treatment modality for prostate cancer, especially stages that are resistant to current therapies, with the additional benefit of preferentially targeting tumor cells amongst an environment of healthy tissue. Herein, the low pathogenic enteroviruses; Coxsackievirus A21 (CVA21), as well as a bio-selected variant of Coxsackievirus A21 ... Read more >>

Total hip arthroplasty as an overnight-stay procedure using an ambulatory continuous psoas compartment nerve block: a prospective feasibility study.

Brian M Ilfeld, Peter F Gearen, F Kayser Enneking, Linda F Berry, Eugene H Spadoni, Steven Z George, Krista Vandenborne,

<h4>Objective</h4>Total hip arthroplasty (THA) results in severe postoperative pain requiring hospitalization to provide potent analgesia. Consequently, the average duration of hospitalization after THA in the United States is 4 to 5 days. This prospective study investigated the feasibility of converting THA into an overnight-stay procedure using a continuous psoas compartment ... Read more >>

Total knee arthroplasty as an overnight-stay procedure using continuous femoral nerve blocks at home: a prospective feasibility study.

Brian M Ilfeld, Peter F Gearen, F Kayser Enneking, Linda F Berry, Eugene H Spadoni, Steven Z George, Krista Vandenborne,

The average duration of hospitalization after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in the United States is 4-5 days. In this two-phase study we investigated the feasibility of converting TKA into an overnight-stay procedure using a continuous femoral nerve block provided at home through postoperative day 4. Nine of 10 patients met ... Read more >>

Intranasal immunization with C. muridarum major outer membrane protein (MOMP) and cholera toxin elicits local production of neutralising IgA in the prostate.

Danica K Hickey, Russell C Jones, Shisan Bao, Anita E Blake, Kathryn A Skelding, Linda J Berry, Kenneth W Beagley,

Successful control of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) through vaccination will require the development of vaccine strategies that target protective immunity to both the female and male reproductive tracts (MRT). In the male, the immune privileged nature of the male reproductive tract provides a barrier to entry of serum immunoglobulins into ... Read more >>

Transcutaneous immunization with combined cholera toxin and CpG adjuvant protects against Chlamydia muridarum genital tract infection.

Linda J Berry, Danica K Hickey, Kathryn A Skelding, Shisan Bao, Amanda M Rendina, Philip M Hansbro, Christine M Gockel, Kenneth W Beagley,

Chlamydia trachomatis is a pathogen of the genital tract and ocular epithelium. Infection is established by the binding of the metabolically inert elementary body (EB) to epithelial cells. These are taken up by endocytosis into a membrane-bound vesicle termed an inclusion. The inclusion avoids fusion with host lysosomes, and the ... Read more >>
