This disclosure describes, in one aspect, a composition that includes a -glucan component and an antibody component that specifically binds to the -glucan. In another aspect, this disclosure describes a method of increasing a subjects response to -glucan immunotherapy. Generally, the method includes identifying the subject as a low binder of -glucan and administering to the subject a composition that comprises a -glucan moiety conjugated to the therapeutic antibody. In some cases, the therapeutic antibody can be an anti-tumor antibody.

This disclosure describes, in one aspect, a method for identifying -glucan binding to immune cells of a subject. Generally, the method includes obtaining a blood sample from the subject, the blood sample comprising immune cells, adding soluble -glucan to at least a portion of the blood sample and incubating the mixture under conditions allowing the soluble -glucan to bind to the immune cells, and detecting soluble -glucan bound to the immune cells. In another aspect, this disclosure describes a method that generally includes identifying the subject as a low binder of -glucan, and co-administering to the subject a soluble -glucan and an antibody preparation capable of converting the subject from a low binder to a high binder.

Described herein are beta-glucan compounds, compositions, and methods. Generally, the methods exploit the observation that beta-glucan compounds can bind to B cells. Thus, the methods generally include administering a beta-glucan compound to a subject in an amount effective for the beta-glucan compound to bind to a B cell and modulate at least one biological function of the B cell.

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Fungal infections, particularly in immunocompromised patients, are a serious and growing problem. Although antifungal therapeutics have improved greatly, failures and relapse are common. Aspergillus fumigatus is a primary cause of these infections in several patient populations: transplants, leukemics, genetic deficiencies such as chronic granulomatous disease and others, with mortality remaining high. Preventative antifungal vaccines are an attractive, but as yet unrealized, option. The goal of this proposal is to develop a prototype glucan-protein vaccine by conjugating a protein to a particulate -glucan immunomodulator (i.e., WGP), a cell wall component of many pathogenic fungi. Preliminary work using WGP alone or conjugated to a non-specific protein, bovine serum albumin (BSA), indicated that a glucan-protein vaccine was active against Aspergillus and Coccidioides. The work described in this proposal will examine the potential of conjugating a specific, immunodom

This disclosure provides, in one aspect, a method for analyzing a sample from a subject for a biomarker that is indicative of the subjects immune response to -glucan. Generally, the method includes obtaining a biological sample from a subject, analyzing the sample for a biomarker anti--glucan antibody compared to a reference standard, computing a Relative Antibody Unit (RAU) value for anti--glucan antibody in the sample, and identifying the subject as biomarker positive if the RAU value is greater than a predetermined RAU value for the biomarker anti--glucan antibody.

Studies involving placebo-controlled, double-blinded designs to evaluate the effect of beta-glucan compositions on upper-respiratory tract infections and psychological wellness were carried out. During the course of the reporting periods of these studies, subjects in the treatment groups reported fewer URTI symptoms, better overall health and a more positive psychological assessment based on a POMS survey.
