Methods are provided for treating blood monocytes to produce functional antigen presenting dendritic cells. An extracorporeal quantity of a subject's blood is treated to separate the blood and produce a leukocyte concentrate comprising monocytes and plasma containing proteins.
Bispecific cd33 and cd3 binding proteins
Described herein are binding proteins that specifically bind to human cd33, and in particular to bispecific binding proteins that specifically bind to human cd33 and human cd3. Also described herein are bispecific tandem diabodies that bind to cd33 and cd33, and their uses for immunotherapy of cd33+ cancers, diseases and conditions such as acute myeloid leukemia (aml)..

Fusion proteins and their related methods
The present invention concerns a family of nucleic acids, polypeptides and cloning vectors which direct expression of fusion proteins that can mimic aggregated igg (aig) and immune complex function with respect to their interactions with fcγr and which allow for the inclusion and targeting of a second protein domain to cells expressing fcγr. This was accomplished by expressing multiple linear copies of the hinge and ch2 domains (hch2) of human igg1 fused to the framework region of human igg1.
