METHODS The medical records of 51 patients (23 patients with liver biopsy) with primary hypogammaglobulinemia(More)
PURPOSE To describe the clinical features in HIV-1-infected patients treated with protease inhibitors (PIs) or not, and to determine factors related to occurrence of lipodystrophy (LD). METHOD We performed a cross-sectional analysis of 685 treated HIV-1-infected patients that were routinely followed in 6 Paris hospital centers between January and May(More)
We report the concentrations of maraviroc in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and plasma of six HIV-1-infected patients with both neurological impairment and detectable HIV-1 replication in CSF. One month after starting maraviroc, the viral load in the CSF decreased significantly (P = 0.005). The median (range) maraviroc concentration in plasma was 347 ng/ml(More)

A retrospective analysis of 73 HIV-1-infected patients with proven ARL diagnosed between 1992 and 2000 was conducted. Patients received uniformly the same chemotherapy regimen according to CD4 cell counts at NHL diagnosis:, patients with CD4 cells below or(More)
BACKGROUND In vitro exposure to benzyl benzoate (25 p. 100) kills Sarcoptes scabiei within three hours.
