Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth
Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.
Unique Mechanism for a High-Risk Leukemia
Researchers uncovered the aberrant mechanism underlying a notoriously treatment-resistant acute lymphoblastic leukemia subtype; findings offer lessons for understanding all cancers.
Food Triggers Creation of Regulatory T Cells
IBS researchers document how normal diet establishes immune tolerance conditions in the small intestine.
Therapeutic Approach Gives Hope for Multiple Myeloma
A new therapeutic approach tested by a team from Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital (CIUSSS-EST, Montreal) and the University of Montreal gives promising results for the treatment of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the bone marrow currently considered incurable with conventional chemotherapy and for which the average life expectancy is about 6 or 7 years.
Cellular 'Relief Valve'
A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.
Switch Lets Salmonella Fight, Evade Immune System
Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have discovered a molecular regulator that allows salmonella bacteria to switch from actively causing disease to lurking in a chronic but asymptomatic state called a biofilm.
Tricked-Out Immune Cells Could Attack Cancer
New cell-engineering technique may lead to precision immunotherapies.
Neural Networks Adapt to the Presence of a Toxic HIV Protein
HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) afflict approximately half of HIV infected patients.
HIV Protein Manipulates Hundreds of Human Genes
Findings search for new or improved treatments for patients with AIDS.
Breaking the Brain’s Garbage Disposal
The children’s ataxia gene problem turned out to be not such a big deal genetically — it was such a slight mutation that it barely changed the way the cells made the protein.

Automation of a Homogeneous Proximity Assay for Immunogenicity Testing of Biological Drug Products

BioTek Instruments

This application note presents a homogeneous assay based on using a bridging assay format where all reagents and sample are in solution. This facilitates automation of reagent addition and simplifies the work flow without sacrificing sensitivity. Additionally, we compare the automation of the AlphaLISA® ADA assay with a solution ELISA ADA assay using liquid handling and dispensing instrumentation and a high performance multi-mode microplate reader which can be used to detect the presence of ADA activity in a model system3. The study will describe the assays, reagent preparation and automated methods used and will demonstrate several validation experiments comparing the performance of the two methods described above. Adaptation of the AlphaLISA ADA assay to be performed in a high-density 384-well format will also be described including serum screening data as well as additional analysis required for a full validation study using the AlphaLISA ADA assay technology with automated methods.

The AlphaLISA ADA assay utilizes bivalent binding of anti-drug antibodies to biotinylated drug which is then captured on streptavidin (SA)-coated Donor beads and drug antibody immobilized on Acceptor beads (Figure 1). The resulting complex is formed in the presence of ADAs resulting in the two beads coming into close proximity. Laser excitation of Donor beads at 680 nm results in singlet oxygen generation and as the beads are in close proximity, energy transfer to Acceptor beads is facile resulting in light emission at 615 nm. The formation of the complex in solution eliminates washing steps and secondary detection antibodies typically required with standard sandwich ELISA methods.
