Human gastric cancer-associated antigens were solubilized from fresh ascites and surgical specimens by 3M KCl extraction. The antigenicity of these extracts was measured by leucocyte migration inhibition assay with an improved modification devised in this laboratory. Antigens extracted mutually reacted with autologous and allogeneic leucocytes taken from cancer patients. The out of 11 (27%) patients and 7 out of 28 (25%) patients with various cancers showed positive migration index values against 13 ascites tumor cell antigens in the autologous and allogeneic reaction systems, respectively. Reactions were positive in 4 out of 10 patients with gastric cancer against autologous antigens, and in 10 out of 26 (38%) of the patients against allogeneic tumor antigens. On the other hand, one patient with gastric cancer reacted well with various sources of antigens extracted from allogeneic cells of gastric cancer, while the other patient with gastric cancer did not react with any of five gastric cancer antigens tested so far. These findings suggested that the cell-mediated immune response of patients with gastric cancer against autologous and allogeneic tumor antigens extracted was detectable in the test system. It is considered at pre...Continue Reading

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Allogenic & Autologous Therapies

Allogenic therapies are generated in large batches from unrelated donor tissues such as bone marrow. In contrast, autologous therapies are manufactures as a single lot from the patient being treated. Here is the latest research on allogenic and autologous therapies.

Cell Migration

Cell migration is involved in a variety of physiological and pathological processes such as embryonic development, cancer metastasis, blood vessel formation and remoulding, tissue regeneration, immune surveillance and inflammation. Here is the latest research.
