1. B lymphocyte-directed immunotherapy promotes long-term islet allograft survival in nonhuman primates.

    Nature Medicine 13(11):1295 (2007) PMID 17965721

    We found that an induction immunotherapy regimen consisting of rabbit anti-thymocyte globulin (Thymoglobulin) and the monoclonal antibody to CD20 rituximab (Rituxan) promoted long-term islet allograft survival in cynomolgus macaques maintained on rapamycin monotherapy. B lymphocyte reconstitutio...

  3. Adenoviral Mediated Uteroglobin Gene Transfer to the Adventitia Reduces Arterial Intimal Hyperplasia

    Journal of Surgical Research 99(2):377 (2001)

    Purpose. The aim of this study was to investigate the feasibility of gene transfer of uteroglobin, a potent anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory agent, via adenoviral mediated gene transfer to the adventitia in the mouse carotid ligation injury model and also to investigate the eff...
  4. Adenoviral-mediated uteroglobin gene transfer inhibits neointimal hyperplasia after balloon injury in the rat carotid artery

    Journal of Vascular Surgery 32(6):1111 (2000)

    Objective: Uteroglobin is a protein with potent anti-inflammatory and immunomodulatory effects. We hypothesize that induction of uteroglobin expression in the artery wall by local adenoviral gene transfer will decrease neointimal hyperplasia in the rat carotid artery after balloon inju...
