The aim of our study was to determine the effect of a rectocolonic preimmunization with ovalbumin on the systemic immune response induced by a subsequent subcutaneous injection of this antigen in Balb/c mice. One rectocolonic, but not intragastric, administration of 25 mg of ovalbumin induced a detectable increase in serum anti-ovalbumin antibody level. The level reached was however much lower than after subcutaneous injection. Both intragastric and rectocolonic immunization with ovalbumin induced specific systemic cellular tolerance. However, after rectocolonic, but not intragastric, preimmunization there was no systemic humoral tolerance to this antigen. These differences in systemic immune responses after rectocolonic or intragastric administration of ovalbumin could be due to different stimulation of the systemic immune system or to differences between the colonic and small bowel mucosal immune system, which remain to be elucidated.

This article describes the optimization of the hybridization signal obtained with biotinylated oligonucleotides. Optimal number and positions of biotin moieties on a 33-base oligonucleotide probe were determined. The quality of avidin-peroxidase conjugate and the choice of chromogenic substrate influenced detection sensitivity. A signal amplification method was also developed for avidin enzymatic conjugates. These improvements allowed the detection of less than 0.02 fmol of target DNA. [less ▲]

A simple stochastic model of Darwinistic evolution generating phylogenetic-like trees is developed. The model is based on a branching process taking competition-correlation effects into account. In presence of finite and short range correlations, the process self-organizes into a critical steady-state in which intermittent bursts of activity of all sizes are generated. On a geological-like time scale, this behaviour agrees with punctuated equilibrium features of biological evolution. The simulated phylogenetic-like trees are found to be self-similar. The dynamics of the transient regimes show a power law decrease of the order parameter towards the 0(+) value which characterizes an unstable critical state. The genetic range k of competition-correlations between living species is found to be a relevant parameter which determines the universality class of the evolution process. An infinite competition-correlation range destroys however the self-organized critical behaviour. The fractal dimension D-f of the phylogenetic-like trees increases from 2.0 to infinity as k goes from 1 to infinity. The critical exponent tau of avalanche size-distribution decreases from about 3/2 (for k = 1) and reaches about 1.2 for k = 10. A hyperscaling relation seems to relate the various universality classes. Through a mean-field theory, we mention that the evolution process is much more complex than a simple uncorrelated branching process. [less ▲]

Progelatinases A and B were purified from HT1080-conditioned culture medium using a continuous-elution electrophoresis. Initially cell culture medium was ammonium sulfate precipitated. The concentrated proteins were affinity chromatographed on gelatin-Sepharose column. The bound gelatinases were eluted with electrophoresis sample buffer and subjected to continuous-elution electrophoresis. In a single run, under the standardized working conditions, the obtained fractions contained four purified enzymes--progelatinase A (M(r) 72,000), its activated forms (M(r) 62,000 and M(r) 59,000), and progelatinase B (M(r) 92,000). Moreover, the continuous-elution electrophoresis allowed the enzymes separation from their respective inhibitors--TIMP-1 (M(r) 28,500) and TIMP-2 (M(r) 21,000). The purified progelatinases A and B demonstrated high specific activities (150-200 U/micrograms). [less ▲]

In Crohn's disease, the activity of the disease is difficult to evaluate and the evolution of the disease is difficult to predict. The soluble interleukin-2 receptor serum level has been reported to correlate with clinical activity of the disease and with mucosal immune activation. We compared serum soluble interleukin-2 receptor to classical inflammatory markers and other immune parameters in the assessment of clinical disease activity and prediction of relapse in patients with Crohn's disease. Soluble interleukin-2 receptor serum levels correlated well with the Crohn's disease activity index, and multivariate analysis showed that this correlation was independent of the other inflammatory and immune markers. The correlation was not greater, However, than that between some inflammatory markers, such as ESR, and Crohn's disease activity index. Longitudinal follow-up showed that a high soluble interleukin-2 receptor serum level was highly predictive of relapse. Multivariate analysis showed that the soluble interleukin-2 recepteur serum level was complementary to other inflammatory and clinical markers in the prediction of relapse of disease. We conclude that soluble interleukin-2 receptor is of use in monitoring Crohn's disease, particularly in prediction of relapse. [less ▲]

Attention has been paid to phase separation of poly (lactide-co-glycolide) solutions in CH2Cl2 induced by the addition of a silicone oil in order to promote protein microencapsulation. Since the process is very fast, the system is anytime out of equilibrium. The effect of the main processing parameters on the microencapsulation process has been analyzed and has highlighted that kinetics of the main encapsulation steps has a great effect on the characteristics of the final microspheres. These results have been discussed on the basis of a physico-chemical study of coacervation reported in previous papers of this series. [less ▲]
