Researchers in the Antibody and Vaccine Group have developed two monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) called anti-4-1BB and anti-CD40 and investigated a third called anti-CTLA-4. Each of these antibodies binds to a different target molecule in the immune system, potentially heightening the body's own immune response to cancer. Published in the July edition of Clinical Cancer Research, the study has shown that the antibodies boost the immune system to fight neuroblastoma -- a form of childhood...

Researchers identify risk factor for autism in a subset of children: Maternal antibody-related autism UC Davis MIND Institute researchers have identified the specific antibodies that target fetal brain proteins in the blood of a subset of women whose children are diagnosed with autism. The finding is the first to pinpoint a specific risk factor for a significant subset of autism cases, as well as a biomarker for drug development and early diagnosis. The researchers have named autism...

Researchers Link Gluten Antibodies And Autism In Children
2013-06-20 19:11:35

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A group of American researchers has found evidence of gluten antibodies in children with autism, suggesting a potential link between the body immune system and the developmental disorder. The research team also found a connection between elevated antibody levels and gastrointestinal symptoms among affected children. They did not make a connection between elevated antibody levels and celiac disease, according to their report in the...

2013-06-18 18:30:30

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Earlier this month, actor Michael Douglas raised the prospect of oral sex leading to throat cancer through the transmission of the human papillomavirus (HPV), a virus known to cause the disease in some individuals. According to a new study from a team of international researchers in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, blood tests can be used to detect the presence of the virus via the body´s production of telltale antibodies...

Researchers have found that antibodies against the human papillomavirus (HPV) may help identify individuals who are at greatly increased risk of HPV-related cancer of the oropharynx, which is a portion of the throat that contains the tonsils. In their study, at least 1 in 3 individuals with oropharyngeal cancer had antibodies to HPV, compared to fewer than 1 in 100 individuals without cancer.  When present, these antibodies were detectable many years before the onset of disease. These...
