Two monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), designated MLuC5 and MLuC6, were produced against a human small cell lung carcinoma cell line. They were found to exhibit a superimposable reactivity on different cell lines and on platelets. Moreover, they both immunoprecipitated a 67 kDa molecule from the membrane of the reference target cells. Immunodepletion and(More)
Invasive mucormycosis is a well-documented disease in the immunocompromised patient, but in recent years it has been reported increasingly in immunocompetent patients. We report a case of maxillary paranasal sinus mucormycosis in an immunologically competent host that was successfully treated with surgery and combined liposomal amphotericin B and rHuGM-CSF.(More)

In recent years, several reports have emphasized the increasing importance of visceral leishmaniasis as an opportunistic infection among HIV-positive patients in areas where both infections are endemic. Major challenges in the treatment of leishmaniasis include widespread resistance to pentavalent antimonial compounds, absence of safe chemotherapeutic(More)
Eight out of 30 consecutive patients with AIDS and cryptococcal meningoencephalitis (26,7%) presented cutaneous involvement, in the form of papulo-nodular lesions in 3 patients, molluscum contagiosum-like lesions in 3 patients, and pustular-ulcerative lesions in 2 patients. Skin localization represented an untoward prognostic sign, and in 3 out of 8(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the role of Flavobacterium spp. infection in patients with HIV disease. METHODS Clinical charts of 2412 consecutive HIV-infected patients hospitalized in a 8-year period were retrospectively reviewed, to identify all cases of Flavobacterium spp. infections, and to evaluate their occurrence and outcome according to several(More)
Osteonecrosis has shown an increased incidence in HIV-infected patients during the last few years, and has been looked as a side effect of highly active antiretroviral therapy, possibly related to hyperlipidemia. Five cases of osteonecrosis were observed among over 1300 patients with HIV disease. According to our experience, novel antiretroviral regimens do(More)
We report two rare cases of acute toxoplasmic hepatitis in patients that were serum positive for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection. Although Toxoplasma gondii is the main causative agent in infections of the central nervous system (CNS) in patients with AIDS and is known to cause widely disseminated infection in this clinical setting, few reports(More)
Both the incidence and prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus infection are increasing in the world. Diseases of ENT districts are more frequent in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients and involve all the otolaryngological sites. The otorhinolaryngological manifestations in association with HIV infection are mainly atypical, so common in the(More)
