  • The lab's third project deals with the elucidation of the molecular basis of antigen mimicry by anti-idiotypic antibodies.

  • In addition, the "efficacy" of antitumor therapy (a fact seemingly more related to operability and enablement than written description) is expected to be related to "idiotypic change in the original tumor" according to a scientific journal article by Dr. Alonso himself.

    Patent Docs

  • What Dr. Alonzo found was that for this particular type of cancer, neurofibrosarcoma, cells could be taken and used to make human idiotypic antibodies from the patient's own tumor, which could then be used to treat the patient with (admittedly) striking results.

    Patent Docs

  • Now, a claim to a pharmaceutical composition comprising an idiotypic monoclonal antibody immmunologically reactive with a neurofibrosarcoma is the kind of "reach through" claim you seem to find objectionable, and there you are probably right on these facts.

    Patent Docs

  • A method of treating neurofibrosarcoma in a human by administering an effective amount of a monoclonal antibody idiotypic to the neurofibrosarcoma of said human, wherein said monoclonal antibody is secreted from a human-human hybridoma derived from the neurofibrosarcoma cells.

  • Furthermore, anti-idiotypic antibodies and immune complexes may develop with repeated infections and affect GIA levels.
