ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00453375.. Clinical Trial Results to DateIn the BHT-3021 Phase I / II study, 44 patients were randomly assigned to four different dose was previously group of BHT-3021 . BHT-3021 is the safety and tolerability, proved without an increase in adverse events compared to placebo. Preliminary data from the 1 mg dose cohort indicate that treatment with BHT-3021 may cause beta cell preservation as well as the induction of immune tolerance to pancreatic autoantigens.
BHT-3021 is developed an antigen-specific immunotherapeutic DNA vaccine to reverse the underlying process in autoimmune diabetes, and to slow or halt further loss of pancreatic beta cell function. ‘We are very pleased to have the support of JDRF as we clinical development of clinical development of BHT-3021,’said Mark W. Schwartz, Bayhill President and CEO of. ‘This agreement demonstrates JDRF’s commitment to fund groundbreaking clinical research and development of new therapeutics that potentially a significant impact on the lives of people with diabetes are.

About the Study 003This Phase I trial evaluates IMGN901 in patients with CD56+ multiple myeloma that has progressed on prior treatment and not to respond to these agents . Study IMGN901 two consecutive weeks two consecutive weeks every three weeks . During the dose-escalation part of the study, no limit on the number of prior therapies was received places places. In the expansion phase now underway, patients must have received three cycles of treatment no more than three cycles of treatment for enrollment. For enrollment. At this stage of the study was progression-free survival and overall survival data as well as objective response information will be recorded.
IMGN901 is an investigational agent designed to kill cancer cells that express CD56, a protein. It consists of a CD56-binding antibody with a potent cancer cell killing agent, attached thereto using an engineered linker. IMGN901 is in Phase I trials for the treatment of CD56-expressing solid tumors and multiple myeloma. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of ImmunoGen. Continue reading
Schwertz and his colleagues found that the newly formed platelets structurally and functionally from normal platelets and are similar in size, shape, and metabolic activity. It is important that the group also demonstrated that platelets produce progeny in human whole blood cultures. This suggests that new therapies have been developed to increase circulating platelet counts in patients whose platelets are abnormally low due to a medical condition.
During the final phase of the platelets thrombopoiesis shed from the cytoplasm of its precursors, and then Because they bloodstream. Because they lack nuclei circulating platelets cytoplasts. ..

– Platelets potentially prevail on many aspects of transplantation biology, says Craig Morrell, assistant professor of molecular and comparative pathobiology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Our data, as well as others ‘, show a surprising interplay of platelets and the immune system, so it’s time for the transplant world at large to have plates on the radar. – A self – described platelet guy the unexplored the unexplored biology of these circulating bodies, Morrell collaborated with clinicians in the field of transplantation, a comprehensive review of platelets and transplant biology, in the January issue of the American Journal of Transplantation write.

According to Stuart, the beneficiaries, medications medications rely chronic diseases such as Alzheimer’s and arthritis probably most clearly through the so-called donut hole in coverage for beneficiaries will be responsible for 100 percent of drug costs between affected $ 2,250 and $ 5,100 to the total cost the program the first year. The analysis revealed that the average Medicare beneficiary spend $ 722 out of pocket each year on prescription medications, or 55 percent less than what it will be issued without drug coverage. In contrast, Medicare beneficiaries with diabetes spend $ 1,500 out of your pocket – 32 percent less than without the benefits – and beneficiaries with mental illness are more than $ 1,800 out of pocket, a 16 percent savings pass.
