T cells from PBMCs isolated from patients and healthy controls were in vitro activated with anti-CD3 and anti-CD28 for 72 hours. After T cell activation, cells were harvested and RNA extracted for microarray analysis.
10 replicate T cell samples from SLE (Lupus) patients9 replicate T cell samples from healthy control (BC) subjects4 replicate Nitric Oxide (NOC-18) stimulated T cell samples from 4 of the control subjects4 replicate CD3/CD28 stimulated T cell samples from 4 of the control subjects
Whole blood from 33 female SLE patients and 16 matched controls from EA and AA ancestral backgrounds was analyzed through Affymetrix Gene 1.0 ST gene expression arrays and the data were further studied through Ingenuity Pathways Analysis for canonical pathway comparison. An independent replication cohort of more than 100 SLE patient samples and 30 controls was used to test the hypotheses generated by the microarray data, using qPCR to quantify gene expression.
Gene expression comparisons were made between: 1. asthmatics and healthy controls, and 2. Th2 high asthma and Th2 Low asthma/Healthy controls. The gene expression alterations most associated with asthma were then used in gene set enrichment analyses and gene signature development to compare this asthma dataset to COPD gene expression datasets.
Twenty-eight patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) were included. The blood was collected on the 1st day of myocardial infarction, after 4-6 days, and after 6 months. Control group comprised 14 patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD), without history of myocardial infarction. Gene expression analysis was performed with Affymetrix GeneChip® Human Gene 1.0 ST microarrays and GCS3000 TG system.
Upon the onset of ‘common cold’, volunteers were instructed to attend the first of three required visits to the study clinic. The first and second visits were designed to obtain samples and clinical data during the early and late stages of symptomatic illness respectively, whereas the third visit would occur when volunteers were asymptomatic and serve as a prospective baseline (BL) for the study.
17 patients with quiescent lupus (patient1-17) versus 9 controls (Control1-6,Control8-10).
Blood from healthy volunteers (n=4) was collected into sodium heparin tubes, and then untreated or treated with 294 pM recombinant human IFN-γ for 0, 24, or 48 hours with incubation at 37oC, 5 % CO2. The blood was then added to PAXgene tubes and processed for RNA purification. Twenty six subjects with stable, mild to moderate SLE were administered placebo or a single dose of AMG 811 ranging from 2 mg to 180 mg SC or 60 mg IV. Whole blood PAXgene tube samples were collected from all cohorts at...
