In its spread west across North America in 2002, West Nile virus (WNV) reached a population of marked American Crows (Corvus brachyrhynchos) in Stillwater, Oklahoma, in late summer. Within two months, 46 of 120 individuals were missing or known to be dead, 39 of which (33% of the population) are estimated to have died for WNV-related reasons. In 2003, 56 of(More)
We have investigated the distribution of genotypes of a restriction fragment length polymorphism of the T-cell receptor beta-subunit gene in Caucasoid controls and patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, celiac disease, dermatitis herpetiformis, and idiopathic membranous nephropathy and also in South Indian controls and diabetics. We found no(More)
We investigated polymorphism of HLA-DP genes in three DR3 related diseases, confirming an association of coeliac disease with a Bgl II DP alpha polymorphism (a restriction fragment sized 3.5 kb present in 75% of patients compared to 34% of control subjects, p less than 0.001), and finding a weaker association with dermatitis herpetiformis (57% v 34%, p =(More)
