Pegylated interferon alfa-2b vs standard interferon alfa-2b, plus ribavirin, for chronic hepatitis C in HIV-infected patients: a randomized controlled trial.
In combination with ribavirin, treatment with peginterferon alfa-2b is more effective than standard interferonAlfa- 2b for HCV infection in HIV-infected patients.
A Trial of Early Antiretrovirals and Isoniazid Preventive Therapy in Africa.
In this African country, immediate ART and 6 months of IPT independently led to lower rates of severe illness than did deferred ART and no IPT, both overall and among patients with CD4+ counts of at least 500 cells per cubic millimeter.
Factors related to lipodystrophy and metabolic alterations in patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection receiving highly active antiretroviral therapy.
Age was significantly associated with different phenotypes of lipodystrophy and metabolic alterations, but body-mass index, CD4(+) cell count, and type of nucleoside reverse-transcriptase inhibitor or PI received were not constantly associated with these changes.
A four-month gatifloxacin-containing regimen for treating tuberculosis.
Noninferiority of the 4-month regimen to the standard regimen with respect to the primary efficacy end point was not shown, and there was no evidence of increased risks of prolongation of the QT interval or dysglycemia with the 4 month regimen.
Safety and immunogenicity of an inactivated split-virion influenza A/Vietnam/1194/2004 (H5N1) vaccine: phase I randomised trial
Hypervirulence of a Rough Variant of the Mycobacterium abscessus Type Strain
It is shown that this rough variant of Mycobacterium abscessus CIP 104536T has lost the ability to produce glycopeptidolipids, is hyperlethal for C57BL/6 mice infected intravenously, and induces a strong tumor necrosis factor-alpha response by murine monocyte-derived macrophages.

Bacterial spondylodiskitis--i.e., adjacent vertebral osteomyelitis and diskitis--was studied in 80 adult patients and cases due to staphylococci and those due to M. tuberculosis were associated with a high frequency of previous active infection with those respective organisms at any site.

Data suggest that two main mechanisms may protect infected mice from an early fatal pneumonia: the efficient opsonization of the yeast by complement and the recruitment of phagocytes in infected tissues.
