Modifications of the hydrophilicity of heterocyclic methacrylate copolymers for protein release
A series of copolymers comprising ethyl methacrylate (EM) and tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate (THFMA) gelled with either THFMA monomer or hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) monomer have been developed. In this paper, we ...
The water uptake of poly(tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate)
Poly(tetrahydrofurfuryl methacrylate) possesses some unique characteristics with respect to its biocompatibility and behaviour in water. The water uptake is high (>70%) and very slow (over 3 yr), but the material remains ...
CD5+ B lymphocytes are the main source of antibodies reactive with non-parasite antigens in Trypanosoma congolense-infected cattle
(Blackwell Science Ltd, 1997)
Mice infected with African trypanosomes produce exceptionally large amounts of serum IgM, a major part of which binds to non-trypanosome antigens such as trinitrophenol and single-strand DNA. In this paper, we describe ...
Rise in erythropoietin concentrations in experimental Trypanosoma congolense infection of calves
(Elsevier Ltd, 1995-11)
A bioassay was used to measure erythropoietin (EPO) concentrations in calves with haemorrhagic anaemia due to blood loss and in calves with anaemia due to Trypanosoma congolense infection. The bioactivity of EPO was measured ...
Trypanosome non-specific IgM antibodies detected in serum of Trypanosoma congolense-infected cattle are polyreactive
(Elsevier Science, 1999-07-01)
Serum Ig from Trypanosoma congolense-infected cattle were affinity-purified using immobilised trypanosome or non-trypanosome antigens (ß-galactosidase, cytochrome C and ferritin). The bound and unbound IgG and IgM fractions ...
