HIV-1 isolates were recovered from biopsy tissues from the small bowel, colon, and rectum of 10 infected individuals with severe diarrhea. In general, the bowel strains grew well in primary macrophage and lymphocyte cultures, not in T or B cell lines. They induced cytopathic effects such as syncytia formation and cell killing in peripheral blood mononuclear(More)
Two distinct human immunodeficiency viruses, HIV-1SF480 and HIV-2UC2 were isolated simultaneously from the blood of an Ivory Coast patient with AIDS. The HIV subtypes were segregated by their differential ability to infect established human cell lines and by the cell surface expression of type-specific viral antigens. The viruses could be distinguished by(More)
A new isolate of the human immunodeficiency virus type 2, designated HIV-2UC1, was recovered from an Ivory Coast patient with normal lymphocyte numbers who died with neurologic symptoms. Like some HIV-1 isolates, HIV-2UC1 grows rapidly to high titers in human peripheral blood lymphocytes and macrophages and has a differential ability to productively infect(More)
The human immunodefiency virus (HIV) uses the human CD4 glycoprotein as a receptor for infection of susceptible cells. Cells expressing a series of mutated forms of the CD4 gene have shown a variability in their ability to support replication of three HIV type 1 (HIV-1) and three HIV-2 strains. Moreover, when different stages of virus production were(More)
Canine inflammatory mammary carcinoma (IMC) is a rare, locally aggressive, highly metastatic tumor that is poorly responsive to treatment. The purposes of this study were to retrospectively evaluate the history, signalment, and clinical signs of dogs with IMC; compare the outcome of affected dogs treated with traditional chemotherapy with those treated with(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether human adrenal cells can be infected by HIV. METHODS Cultured human fetal adrenal cells and the SW13 human adrenocortical carcinoma cell line were inoculated with several HIV-1 and HIV-2 strains. Virus replication was detected by viral core antigen enzyme-linked immunosorbent and reverse transcriptase assays. CD4 expression(More)
