A first-in-class, first-in-human, phase I trial of p28, a non-HDM2-mediated peptide inhibitor of p53 ubiquitination in patients with advanced solid tumours.
Chicago, United States. In Br J Cancer, 28 Mar 2013
Background:This first-in-human, phase I clinical trial of p28 (NSC745104), a 28-amino-acid fragment of the cupredoxin azurin, investigated the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and preliminary activity of p28 in patients with p53+ metastatic solid tumours.Methods:A total of 15 patients were administered p28 i.v. as a short infusion three times per week for 4 weeks followed by a 2-week rest under an accelerated titration 3+3 dose escalation design until either a grade 3-related adverse event occurred or the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) was reached.
CD57 Expression and Cytokine Production by T Cells in Lesional and Unaffected Skin from Patients with Psoriasis.
São Paulo, Brazil. In Plos One, Dec 2012
We also assessed functionality of the T cells by evaluating the secretion of several inflammatory cytokines (IL-17A, IFN-gamma, IL-2, IL-33, TNF-alpha, IL-21, IL-22, and IL-27), from cell-sorted purified CD4+ and CD8+ T cells isolated from lesional and unaffected skin biopsies of psoriasis patients.
Atopic dermatitis and cytokines: recent patents in immunoregulatory and therapeutic implications of cytokines in atopic dermatitis--part I: cytokines in atopic dermatitis.
Taejŏn, South Korea. In Recent Pat Inflamm Allergy Drug Discov, Sep 2012
Recently, the roles of new cytokines including IL-16, IL-17, IL-21, IL-22, IL-23, IL-27, IL-31, IL-33, IL-35 and thymus stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), and Th2 polarization in the immunopathogenesis of skin inflammation and physically injured skin have been described, in addition to roles for IL-4, IL- 5, IL-9, IL-13, IFN-γ and TGF-β.
