The present application provides a chemical process that neutralizes, removes or substantially reduces antigens from and sterilizes and/or strengthens xenograft implants.
The invention relates to heart valve xenografts from transgenic pigs having a disruption of an α1-3 galactosyl transferase nucleic acid sequence and use of the xenografts for treating a patient.
The present invention provides human transplantable inflammatory breast carcinoma xenografts.
Toxin complexes and methods for preventing immune rejection of xenografts are provided.
Kits and xenografts are also contemplated.
The present invention relates to methods and compositions for the reduction of xenotransplantation rejection.
However, if transplanted tissue is mixed with recipient endothelial cells or co-administered, vascularization and acceptance of auto-, allo-, and heterotransplants is enhanced.
Expression of VEGF in xenografts increased neoangiogenesis, enhanced tumor growth, stimulated a tamoxifen resistant phenotype, increased metastatic potential and induced a desmoplastic response.
The use of ex ovo embryonic eggs may be particularly advantageous in providing vasculature to xenografts in the relative absence of immunological concerns, as the embryo is immune-incompetent.
Each of the xenografts of the invention are substantially non-immunogenic, and have substantially the same mechanical properties as a corresponding native soft or bone tissue.
Each of the xenografts of the invention are substantially non-immunogenic and have substantially the same mechanical properties as a corresponding native soft tissue.
The invention provides articles of manufacture and methods for preparing substantially non-immunogenic soft, and bone tissue xenografts for implantation into humans.
These proteins are useful in the treatment of complement-mediated conditions, such as hyperacute rejection of xenografts.
Implant assemblies (10) and methodologies provide immuno-protection for implanted allografts, xenografts, and isografts.
The application identifies a problem in the expression of transgenes in transgenic animals which renders the use of transgenic material unsuitable for successful xenograft transplantation.
The method is useful for validation of cancer therapeutic targets in vivo, using shRNAs and tumor xenografts.
Accordingly, this technology can be adapted for serial monitoring of CTCs in mouse xenograft tumor models of human breast cancer.
Liposomes comprising SP5-52 and doxorubicin enhanced the efficacy of the drug against multiple human cancer xenografts in SCED mice.
In vivo, PC94 homed specifically to tumor tissues but not to normal visceral organs in SCID mice bearing human HCC xenografts.
