Vaccine. 2010;28:1300-9 pubmed publisher..Collectively, our data suggest that for a HIV-1 vaccine where both antigen-specific cellular and humoral immunity are desirable, 4-1BBL expressed by a DNA vaccine is a superior adjuvant than anti-4-1BB agonistic Ab. ..
- Richter P, Li A, Polzin G, Roy S. Cytotoxicity of eight cigarette smoke condensates in three test systems: comparisons between assays and condensates. Regul Toxicol Pharmacol. 2010;58:428-36 pubmed publisher..Overall, cigarettes made with flue-cured tobacco were the most cytotoxic across the assays. When results were expressed on a per-mg of nicotine basis, lower tar cigarettes were the most cytotoxic in primary human respiratory cells. ..
