Immunologic failure despite suppressive antiretroviral therapy is related to activation and turnover of memory CD4 cells.
TLDR
Immune activation that appears related to exposure to microbial elements distinguishes immune failure from immune success in treated HIV infection. Expand
Aspergillus Valve Endocarditis in Patients without Prior Cardiac Surgery
TLDR
It is concluded that native valve aspergillus infective endocarditis is uniformly fatal without surgical intervention and antifungal therapy. Expand
Analysis and characterization of antiviral drug-resistant cytomegalovirus isolates from solid organ transplant recipients.
TLDR
The development of cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease and subsequent emergence of drug-resistant strains was examined in a large group of solid organ transplant recipients, which strongly supports the premise that drug resistance is most prevalent in that transplant population. Expand
Use of leflunomide in an allogeneic bone marrow transplant recipient with refractory cytomegalovirus infection
TLDR
It is concluded that leflunomide is a new immunosuppressive agent with anti-CMV activity, which may be useful in the treatment of multiresistant CMV, however, the toxicity profile of leflinomide in patients with underlying GVHD remains to be defined. Expand

TLDR
Although Lyme disease is the most common and well-known of the many tick-borne diseases, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, and babesiosis are also threats throughout the United States. Expand
Antimicrobial Stewardship Program to Reduce Antiretroviral Medication Errors in Hospitalized Patients with Human Immunodeficiency Virus Infection
TLDR
Multifaceted, multidisciplinary stewardship efforts reduced the rate and increased the overall resolution of HAART-related medication errors and decreased the number of admissions with a medication error. Expand
Encephalitis Owing to Human Herpesvirus‐6 after Cardiac Transplant
TLDR
A 32‐year‐old cardiac transplant recipient who initially presented 8 weeks after his transplant with high fever and headache is presented andPolymerase chain reaction (PCR) of blood and cerebrospinal fluid detected HHV‐6 DNA, consistent with HHV-6‐related encephalitis, pneumonitis and bone marrow suppression. Expand
Dried-Plasma Transport Using a Novel Matrix and Collection System for Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Hepatitis C Virus Virologic Testing
TLDR
Dried plasma collected with SampleTanker yielded comparable results to frozen samples for multiple-analyte clinical testing, and could be a useful alternative for virologic tests and clinical trials worldwide by significantly diminishing transportation cost and the sample volume restrictions associated with dried-blood-spot technology. Expand
Listeriosis: recognizing it, treating it, preventing it.
  • A. Taege
  • Medicine
  • Cleveland Clinic journal of medicine
  • 1 June 1999
TLDR
The epidemiology, microbiology, populations at risk, clinical manifestations, treatment, and prevention of listeria monocytogenes are reviewed. Expand
Novel Fastidious, Partially Acid-Fast, Anaerobic Gram-Positive Bacillus Associated with Abscess Formation and Recovered from Multiple Medical Centers
TLDR
The findings support the description of a new genus and species of the suborder Corynebacterineae, and a novel anaerobe causing abscess in four patients at three hospitals, which was not identified by 16S rRNA sequencing. Expand
