These facts also support the hypothesis that CVID-associated B-lymphocyte defects and hypogammaglobulinemia give rise to decrease of sex hormone-binding globulin and sex hormone receptor; consequently, sex hormone cannot effectively promote the periodical change of endometrium [Figure 1].
BENLYSTA is a human monoclonal antibody that selectively targets B-lymphocyte stimulator (BLyS), an important factor in the survival of B cells.
For evaluation of antigen recognition in cockatiels, resident lymphoid aggregates in an adjacent, histologically normal section of proventriculus were used as internal control tissue for Tlymphocyte and B-lymphocyte staining.
Characterization of incidentally identified minute clonal B-lymphocyte populations in peripheral blood and bone marrow.
One part is to determine a safe dose of ZQE by gastric perfusion in mice with an acute toxicity and a maximum tolerance test, and the second part of the presented study indicates the immunorestorative effects of ZQE dependent of the doses applied in mice treated with cyclophosphamide, including the carbon clearance index, the weight ratio of immune organ, serum hemolysin, T-, B-lymphocyte transformation rate and IL-2, IFN-, and IL-4 secretion.
The capacity to elicit an effective T- and B-lymphocyte immunity can be shown by the stimulation of lymphocyte proliferation response [17].
PCR assays detect B-lymphocyte clonality in formalinfixed, paraffin-embedded specimens of classical hodgkin lymphoma without microdissection.
The resulting cells had the profile of their new identity as iNSCs, yet retained their B-lymphocyte genetic marker, showing that Cassady's method could indeed convert non-neural cells to iNSCs.
The working group found associations between schizophrenia and enhancers active in the brain; they also found associations between schizophrenia and enhancers active in tissues with important immune functions, especially B-lymphocyte lineages involved in acquired immunity, such as CD 19 and CD20.
Benefit from B-lymphocyte depletion using the anti-CD20 antibody rituximab in chronic fatigue syndrome.
Because invasive EV infections have been described in adults with hereditary or congenital defects in B-lymphocyte function, humoral immunity is likely to play a key role in EV infection control (9).
However, many dogs display localized upregulated T and B-lymphocyte responses within the skin lesions, and this may contribute to the pathogenesis of the skin lesions observed in many affected dogs and secondary bacterial infection is a frequent complication in skin lesions of affected dogs.
