Inciting an Immune Attack on Cancer Cells
A new minimally invasive vaccine that combines cancer cells and immune-enhancing factors could be used clinically to launch a destructive attack on tumors.
Inflammation Linked to Colon Cancer Metastasis
A new Arizona State University research study led by Biodesign Institute executive director Raymond DuBois has identified for the first time the details of how inflammation triggers colon cancer cells to spread to other organs, or metastasize.
New Strategy for Combating Adenoviruses
Using an animal model they developed, Saint Louis University and Utah State university researchers have identified a strategy that could keep a common group of viruses called adenoviruses from replicating and causing sickness in humans.
Major Advance Toward More Effective, Long-Lasting Flu Vaccine
Collaboration shows vaccine candidate can produce powerful ‘broadly neutralizing antibodies’ in animal models.
Immune System: Help for Killer Cells
A study from the University of Bonn may show the way to more effective vaccines.
Protein Found to Control Inflammatory Response
A new Northwestern Medicine study shows that a protein called POP1 prevents severe inflammation and, potentially, diseases caused by excessive inflammatory responses.
A Leap Forward in Vaccinating Against HIV
A team of scientists has developed an experimental vaccine candidate that successfully stimulates the immune system activity in animal models necessary to stop HIV infection.
MRI Scanners Can Steer Therapeutics to Specific Target Sites
Scientists from the University of Sheffield have discovered MRI scanners, normally used to produce images, can steer cell-based, tumour busting therapies to specific target sites in the body.
Agricultural Intervention Improves HIV Outcomes
A multifaceted farming intervention can reduce food insecurity while improving HIV outcomes in patients in Kenya, according to a randomized, controlled trial led by researchers at UC San Francisco.
Team Finds Early Inflammatory Response Paralyzes T Cells
Findings could have enormous implications for immunotherapy, autoimmune disorders, transplants and other aspects of immunity.

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.
