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...
pDCs from healthy donors (n=4) were treated with gardiquimod (TLR7 agonist) or ODN 2216 (TLR9 agonist) with or without BTK inhibitor for 3 hours.
Screening of ~5500 FDA-approved drugs and clinical candidates for anti-SARS-CoV-2 activity
Peripheral blood was collected from adults with eosinophilic asthma (EA; n=21), paucigranulocytic asthma (PGA; n=22), neutrophilic asthma (NA; n=9), and healthy controls (n =10). Blood monocytes were isolated using ficoll density gradient and immuno-magnetic cell separation. Bisulfite converted genomic DNA was hybridised to Illumina Infinium Methylation27 arrays, and analysed for differential methylation using R/Bioconductor packages

In total 153 arrays were analyzed with 6 technical replicates (147 biological samples). CD34+ stem cells, CD4+ T-cells, resting CD14+ monocytes, stimulated monocytes and macrophages were analyzed, all from patient with severe coronary atherosclerosis or controls that had no coronary atherosclerosis as determined angiographically, and which were carefully matched for age and gender.
