Elongation of the linker region with parts of the mucin-like stalk of C[X.sub.3]CL1 and also deletion of domain II of PE reduced the efficacy of the FTPs in killing US28-expressing cells compared to F49A-FTP This is consistent with previous studies where eliminating the furin cleavage site by deletion or preventing cleavage with a point mutation in the sites reduced the cytotoxicity of a series of immunotoxins [40].

Finally, we purified the immunotoxin by nickel affinity chromatography and then verified the protein through SDS-PAGE (Figure 1(a)).
In addition, studies using immunosuppressant regimens along with the immunotoxins also showed some benefit.[sup][3],[24],[25] Other regimens, including a lymphocyte-depleting regimen, which consists of pentostatin and cyclophosphamide, were also found promising in delaying the stimulation of neutralizing anti-immunotoxin antibodies, thus allowing repetitive immunotoxin treatments for patients with solid tumors.[sup][25] Pentostatin and cyclophosphamide selectively suppress the effect of T- and B-cells while largely sparing myeloid cells.[sup][26]
