Application note: Evaluate anti-inflammatory compounds using a multiparametric THP-1 cell-based assay

18 October 2019 | By

Macrophages originate from blood monocytes that leave the circulation and penetrate various tissues where they differentiate into macrophages. They are involved in the removal of pathogens and phagocytosis of dead cells. In addition, they initiate inflammation by releasing cytokines that activate vascular cells and facilitate macrophage adhesion to blood vessels…

Expert view: Assays to measure the potency of therapeutic antibodies used in combination with other drugs for Immuno‑Oncology treatments

6 September 2018 | By

Growing evidence reveals that using single immunotherapies to treat oncological disorders may lead to cancer-killing T-cell overdrive,initiating life-threatening autoimmune reactions including cytokinestorm; also known as hypercytokinemia or Cytokine Release Syndrome(CRS). Recently, checkpoint blockade using anti-programmed cell death1 (anti-PD-1) inhibitors became a prevalent approach for stimulatinganti-tumour immune system.
