Application of the multiplex cytokine analysis to monitor xenogeneic immune responses to the porcine islet graft in non-human primate.

Non-human primate studies must be conducted prior to the clinical trial of xenotransplantation. In order to develop clinically applicable immune-modul...

Very young infants' responses to human and nonhuman primate vocalizations.
Recent evidence from very young human infants' responses to human and nonhuman primate vocalizations offers new insights - and brings new questions - to the forefront for those who seek to integrate primate-general and human-specific mechanisms of ac

Chemical Tools To Monitor and Manipulate Adaptive Immune Responses.
Methods to monitor and manipulate the immune system are of enormous clinical interest. For example, the development of vaccines represents one of the earliest and greatest accomplishments of the biomedical research enterprise. More recently, drugs ca

IOP telemetry in the nonhuman primate.
This review is focused on continuous IOP monitoring using telemetry systems in the nonhuman primate (NHP), presented in the context that IOP fluctuations at various timescales may be involved in glaucoma pathogenesis and progression. We use glaucoma

Nonhuman primate models of type 1 diabetes mellitus for islet transplantation.
Islet transplantation is an attractive treatment of type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). Animal models of diabetes mellitus (DM) contribute a lot to the experimental studies of islet transplantation and to evaluations of isolated islet grafts for future

Nonhuman Primate Ocular Biometry.
To examine ocular growth in nonhuman primates (NHPs) from measurements on ex vivo eyes.

Fenfluramine Reduces [11C]Cimbi-36 Binding to the 5-HT2A Receptor in the Nonhuman Primate Brain.
[11C]Cimbi-36 is a serotonin 2A receptor agonist positron emission tomography radioligand that has recently been examined in humans. The binding of agonist radioligand is expected to be more sensitive to endogenous neurotransmitter concentrations tha

A nonhuman primate scrub typhus model: protective immune responses induced by pKarp47 DNA vaccination in cynomolgus macaques.
We developed an intradermal (ID) challenge cynomolgus macaque (Macaca fascicularis) model of scrub typhus, the leading cause of treatable undifferentiated febrile illness in tropical Asia, caused by the obligate intracellular bacterium, Orientia tsut

Humoral and lung immune responses to Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in a primate model of protection.
Recently we reported (Mehra et al., 2013), that lung granulomas from Mycobacterium bovis Bacille Calmette-Guérin (BCG)-vaccinated cynomolgus macaques exhibit upon challenge with M. tuberculosis a more balanced expression of α- and β-chemokines, relat

Xenogeneic therapeutic cancer vaccines as breakers of immune tolerance for clinical application: to use or not to use?
Accumulation of firm evidence that clinically apparent cancer develops only when malignant cells manage to escape immunosurveillance led to the introduction of tumor immunotherapy strategies aiming to reprogramm the cancer-dysbalanced antitumor immun

Multiplex cytokine analysis of Werner syndrome.
We reported a minor inflammation-driven ageing (inflammageing) assessed by highly sensitive CRP (hsCRP) in normal individuals and patients with Werner syndrome (WS), followed by an ageing associated Th2-biased cytokine change in normal ageing in the
