Can phase I trial of proleukin (aldesleukin) and Rapamune lead to type 1 diabetes?

NIH study: The combination of these drugs is being studied in adult patients already diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The thought is that the combination might help slow down the progress of diabetes. The study isn't complete yet. If there is another phase 1 trial using these drugs in a different study, the investigator should be approached with your question. ...Read more

Any good results from the phase I trial of proleukin (aldesleukin) and Rapamune in recent onset type 1 diabetes?

Any good results from the phase I trial of proleukin (aldesleukin) and Rapamune in recent onset type 1 diabetes?

Probably not: It appears that a phase 1 trial of these medications was attempted in 2007, but results were never published. This probably means that the trial was abandoned. Years ago, another immunosuppressive med was used (cyclosporin) to treat early Type 1 diabetes and was successful in preserving pancreatic function. However further studies were abandoned because of excessive toxicity of this class of med ...Read more

What makes Trovax different from other kidney cancer meds (like nexavar, proleukin, torisel, (temsirolimus) sutent)?

Here are some...: All cancer drugs are designed by disrupting the biological pathways of the cancer cells. However, there has been no drug only affecting a spot of the body. As time goes by, more and more pathways of metabolism will be discovered and more drugs will be designed hoping to curbing tumor growth with less side effects. So, ask your oncologists timely; a 400-letter online space is not enough to detail.. ...Read more

What is interleukin 12?

What is interleukin 12?

Signaling molecule: Interleukin-12 (il-12) is known as a cytokine, which are small cell-signaling protein molecules that are secreted by numerous cells and are used extensively in intercellular communication. Il-12 is secreted by certain types of immune cells (such as dendritic cells) to regulate other members of the immune cells (for example, natural killer (nk) cells). ...Read more

Why is interleukin important?

Why is interleukin important?

Interleukins: One of a large group of proteins produced mainly by t cells and in some cases by mononuclear phagocytes or other cells. Interleukins participate in communication among leukocytes and are important in the inflammatory response. Most interleukins direct other cells to divide and differentiate. Each acts on a particular group of cells that have receptors specific to that interleukin. ...Read more

What are EPO and interleukin-11?

Important proteins: Epo (erythropoietin) is a key hormone (made by kidneys in adults, liver in babies) in stimulating/signalling the production of red blood cells--it is used to treat anemia in folks wth kidney failure. Interleukin-11 is a cellular protein encoded by the gene il-11 and is important is regulation of a megakaryocyte--the cell which makes platelets. Very complex processes. Have fun learning.

Is interleukin-1 increased in fever?

Is interleukin-1 increased in fever?

IL 1: Interleukins are cytokines. These are chemical substances released by one cell (often inflammatory), which influence the behavior of other cells. Several interleukins, particularly il 1, are known as pyrogens, in that they may induce fever. Since the interactions among these are quite complex it is possible that the fever was induced by one pyrogen which also caused release of il 1. ...Read more
