Stem Cell Related Patent Number US6919432

Title:Substances and their uses
Inventors:Wells, Timothy N. C.; Geneva, Switzerland Power, Christine A.; Geneva, Switzerland
Summary:This invention describes a chemokine receptor which binds to MIP-1-alpha, RANTES and/or MCP-1. Further disclosed is an isolated antibody binding to a chemokine receptor polypeptide CC-CKR-4 comprised of a specific amino acid sequence, in which the antibody binds to an epitope identified with that sequence. Applications are provided in the screening of agents which act as antagonists to MCP-1, MIP-1-alpha and/or RANTES, as such agents may be useful in the treatment of various disorders, including allergies, atheromas, asthma, eczema, atopic dermatitis, rhinitis, conjunctivitis, and diseases mediated by viruses. Also included are applications in the prevention of graft rejection and in the protection of stem cells from the potentially damaging effects of chemotherapy.
