2. Heterologous Immunization, a Way out of the Problem of Monoclonal Antibody Production against Carcinoma Antigen 125

Sorour Shojaeian; Amir Hassan Zamani; Mahmood Jeddi-Tehrani; Forouzandeh Fereidooni; Ebrahim Torkabadi; Mohammad Mehdi Akhondi; Akram Sadat Tabatabaei-Panah; Abdolamir Allameh

Volume 6, Issue 4 , Autumn 2009, Pages 174-185

  Background: Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are essential tools for many molecular im-munology investigations, epitope mapping and molecular modelling, clinical laboratory di-agnostic tests and immunotherapy. Humoral immune response of immunized animals largely depends on the nature of antigen and the immunization ...  Read More

3. Mesenchymal Stem Cells Do Not Suppress Lymphoblastic Leukemic Cell Line Proliferation

Neda Mousavi Niri; Mansooreh Jaberipour; Mahboobeh Razmkhah; Abbas Ghaderi; Mojtaba Habibagahi

Volume 6, Issue 4 , Autumn 2009, Pages 186-194

  Background: Several studies have demonstrated the immunosuppresive effects of mes-enchymal stem cells (MSCs) in allogeneic or mitogenic interactions. Cell-cell contact inhibition and secretion of suppressive soluble factors have been suggested in this re-gard. Objective: To investigate if adipose derived ...  Read More

Volume 6, Issue 4 , Autumn 2009, Pages 195-201

  Background: Pregnancy is a successful transplantation. The factors evading rejection of the fetus are poorly understood. Recently an interest has grown, in HLA-G molecules as one of these factors. Since these antigens are mainly expressed on the surface of cytotro-phoblasts that are in direct contact ...  Read More

5. Performance of Latex Agglutination Test (KAtex) In Diagnosis of Visceral Leishmaniasis in Iran

Mohammad Amin Ghatei; Gholamreza Hatam; Seyed Mohammad Hossein Hosseini; Bahador Sarkari

Volume 6, Issue 4 , Autumn 2009, Pages 202-207

  Background: Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is an endemic disease in some parts of Iran. Many techniques have been used for diagnosis of VL, among which the urine based la-tex agglutination test (KAtex) is a promising one. Objective: To compare three diag-nostic tests of VL including KAtex, ELISA and Direct ...  Read More

6. Qualitative and Semi-Quantitative Comparison of an Rk39 Strip Test and Direct Agglutination Test for Detection of Anti-Leishmania Donovani Antibodies in the Sudan

Durria Mansour; Elfadil M. Abass; Abdelhafeiz Mahamoud; Abdallah el Harith

Volume 6, Issue 4 , Autumn 2009, Pages 208-215

  Background: Until now, the comparison of the rK39 strip test (RKT) and direct ag-glutination test (DAT) for detection of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is exclusively based on either positive or negative qualification of the reaction outcome. Objective: In this study, we compared the diagnostic performance ...  Read More

7. Tehranolide Could Shift the Immune Response towards Th1 and Modulate the Intra-Tumor Infiltrated T Regulatory Cells

Shokoofe Noori; Mohammad Taghikhani; Zuhair M. Hassan; Abdolamir Allameh; Ali Mostafaei

Volume 6, Issue 4 , Autumn 2009, Pages 216-224

  Background: Artemisia diffusa contains a new type of sesquiterpene lactone with an endoperoxide group (Tehranolide). Objective: Due to the existing similarity between the structures of Tehranolide and Artemisinin, it was hypothesized that Tehranolide would have similar effects as Artemisinin. In this ...  Read More
