In this review we aim to provide a historical overview of the immunotherapeutic approaches which have been developed for the treatment of hematological malignancies. After briefly summarizing the development of the theory of cancer immune surveillance, we describe how initial studies discovering the efficacy of the immune-mediated graft-versus-tumor effects after allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation led to new transplantation approaches (termed non-myeloablative transplantation) relying almost exclusively on graft-versus-tumor effects for tumor eradication. We then summarize important steps in the development of tumor vaccines and autologous adoptive immunotherapy in patients with hematological malignancies. Finally, we describe historical discoveries leading to the recent success with monoclonal antibodies as treatment for lymphomas, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and acute myeloid leukemia. [less ▲]

Immunisation by the infection and treatment method using the Katete strain is currently the most efficient prophylactic technique to control East Coast fever (ECF) in the endemic areas of the Eastern Province of Zambia. The maintenance of the cold chain in liquid nitrogen up to the time of inoculation and the cost of the reference long-acting oxytetracycline (Terramycin LA, Pfizer) are the main drawbacks of the method. The work presented in this paper aims at reducing the cost of immunisation against ECF by using an ice bath for the field delivery and a cheaper long-acting oxytetracycline formulation as chemotherapeutic agent. In experimental conditions, the results from 40 calves immunised after various periods of storage on ice ranging from 4 to 32 h indicate that deferred immunisation performed with a stabilate kept on ice for up to 6h after thawing has an efficiency of 90%. Moreover, sporozoites kept on ice were still surviving 32 h after thawing. In a field trial, 91 calves were inoculated with a stabilate kept for 3.5-5.5 h after thawing and dilution whereas 86 calves were immunised using the standard method. Clinical and parasitological reactions to immunisation were monitored as well as the seroconversion. In the field trial, the deferred immunisation was more efficient than the standard method. The acid formulation of oxytetracycline that was tested was found as suitable as the reference alkaline formulation for the chemotherapeutic control of the Katete strain in ECF immunisation. One indoor trial was carried out on 10 animals and a field trial involved 93 calves. [less ▲]

Le contexte dans lequel s’inscrit la décision commentée est tragique. Elle a pour toile de fond les massacres perpétrés au Rwanda au cours de la guerre civile qui secoua ce pays dans le courant de l’année 1994. Plus précisément, des victimes directes et indirectes de l’attaque du cantonnement basé à l’ETO entendaient engager, entre autre, la responsabilité civile de l’Etat belge en lui reprochant la décision d’évacuation de l’enceinte de l’ETO qui s’est soldée in concreto par l’abandon de deux mille réfugiés rwandais aux mains des miliciens Interahamwe et des gendarmes rwandais. Les faits se déroulèrent le 11 avril 1994. Les actions civiles furent introduites devant le tribunal de première instance de Bruxelles respectivement le 7 avril 2004 et le 4 décembre 2007. Le moyen tiré de la prescription de l’action civile fut, dès lors, l’un des premiers à être soulevé par l’Etat belge. C'est le moyen tiré de la prescription qui est analysé tant sous l'angle pénal que sous l'angle civil. Le commentaire s'attache encore à mettre en lumière les conséquences à tirer lorsque le fait fautif est constitutif d’une infraction imprescriptible et qu’il implique une personne morale de droit public bénéficiant d’une immunité pénale.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Despite the availability of effective vaccines for certain animal species, vaccination against dermatophytosis requires improvement and further development in both animals and humans. This review provides an update on the current situation and focuses on recent advances in host-dermatophyte relationships that could have implications for future vaccination against the most prevalent of the fungal diseases. RECENT FINDINGS: Numerous dermatophytic virulence factors have recently been isolated and characterized at the molecular level, notably secreted proteases involved in the invasion of the keratin network. Their precise roles in the different steps of the infectious process and in immunopathogenesis are being studied, while all aspects of the host immune response against dermatophytes, including the innate response, are becoming increasingly documented. In addition, new molecular tools are now available for studying dermatophytes, which will accelerate research on this topic. SUMMARY: The growth of knowledge concerning all aspects of the host-dermatophyte relationship should contribute towards sound strategies for the development of effective and safe vaccines against dermatophytosis.
