Abstract
SPECIFIC AIMS: WE HAVE RAISED A POTENT MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY (RBC-A) AGAINST BLOOD GROUP A ANTIGEN. OUR AIMS ARE TO: 1. RAISE ADDITIONAL MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES TO RED BLOOD CELL ALLOANTIGENS; 2. INSTITUTE THE TECHNOLOGY FOR THE PRODUCTION OF HUMAN 3. COMPLETE THE STUDY ON THE COMMERCIAL VALUE OF OUR MONOCLONAL RBC-A AS AN EFFECTIVE IN VITRO DIAGNOSTIC REAGENT. LONG-TERM OBJECTIVES TO HEALTH RELATEDNESS: TO DEVELOP NEW DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS FOR BLOOD BANKING, GENETIC TYPING, PATERNITY TESTING, AND FORENSIC MEDICINE; DEVELOP NEW PATHOGEN-FREE THERAPEUTIC TOOLS SUCH AS METHODOLOGY: TO USE MICROAGGULUTINATION ON FULLY PHENOTYPED RED CELL PANELS FOR THE QUICK SCREENINGS OF HYBRIDOMAS; UTILIZE B-CELL-ENRICHED LYMPHOCYTES FROM INDIVIDUALS WITH HIGH POSTNATAL RH TITERS FOR SECONDARY IN VITRO STIMULATION WITH RH POSITIVE RED CELLS IN PRODUCING HUMAN MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES; REGARDING RBC-A, PROVE SPECIFICITY, STABILITY, POTENCY, AND PRODUCT UNIFORMITY BIOCHEMICALLY BY SDS-PAGE, IEF, IG SUBCLASSING, AND SEROLOGICALLY BY AGGLUTINATION, LYSIS, BINDING, AND INHIBITION ASSAYS. PHASE I IMPLICATIONS FOR PHASE II: WE EXPECT THAT BY THE END OF PHASE I WE WILL HAVE ADDITIONAL MONOCLONALS IN VARIOUS PHASES OF DEVELOPMENT AND FUNCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY TO PRODUCE HUMAN MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES; FURTHERMORE, WE WILL HAVE THE DATA TO PROVE THAT OUR RBC-A IS A BIOLOGIC PRODUCT THAT MEETS AND EXCEEDS FDA STANDARDS. COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS: THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES TO RED CELL ANTIGENS WILL RESULT IN THE CREATION OF NEW BIOLOGICAL PRODUCTS AND DIAGNOSTIC TESTS. THE SALE OF ABO AND RH TYPING REAGENTS IN THE U.S.A. ALONE IS A YEARLY MULTIMILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY. THE UNTAPPED HUMAN MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY INDUSTRY IS BELIEVED TO HOLD PROMISE FOR A BILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY WORLDWIDE.
