Chemokines are secreted by monocytes following OK-432 (lyophilized Streptococcus pyogenes) stimulation Olsnes, Carla; Stavang, Helen Åse Margrethe; Brokstad, Karl Albert; Olofsson, Jan; Aarstad, Hans Jørgen (BioMed Central, 2009-01-28)Background: OK-432, penicillin-killed Streptococcus pyogenes, is used in treating lymphangiomas and carcinomas. We have studied in vitro the role of mononuclear phagocytes (MNPs), including purified monocytes (MOs), in the ...Journal article
Maturation of monocyte derived dendritic cells with OK432 boosts IL-12p70 secretion and conveys strong T-cell responses Hovden, Arnt-Ove; Karlsen, Marie; Jonsson, Roland; Aarstad, Hans Jørgen; Appel, Silke (BioMed Central, 2011-01-05)Background: Design of tumour specific immunotherapies using the patients’ own dendritic cells (DC) is a fast advancing scientific field. The functional qualities of the DC generated in vitro are critical, and today’s ...Peer reviewedJournal article
