The clinical phenotype of interleukin 12 receptor ␤ 1 chain (IL-12R ␤ 1) deficiency and the function of human IL-12 in host defense remain largely unknown, due to the small number of patients reported. We now report 41 patients with complete IL-12R ␤ 1 deficiency from 17 countries. The only opportunistic infections observed, in 34 patients, were of(More)

Five children with severe sickle cell anaemia underwent an HLA compatible allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. In four children the engraftment was rapid and sustained. The fifth child rejected the bone marrow graft and required a second bone marrow transplantation 62 days after the first one. The outcome was then uneventful. In all cases there was(More)
In a double-blind study, hepatitis-B immunoglobulin significantly protected patients in a haemodialysis unit against the development of HBs antigenaemia, compared to control patients receiving normal human immunoglobulin (p less than 0-01). Injections were given at the beginning and after 6 months, and observations extended over 16 months. Analysis of(More)
One hundred five patients with MS were divided into three groups matched for age, sex, and disability, and treated with either placebo, transfer factor prepared from leukocytes of random donors, or transfer factor from leukocytes of family members living with the patients. There were no differences in the three treatment groups for changes in disability,(More)
Peripheral blood leukocyte (PBL) cultures from only 37% of MS patients produced detectable HuIFN-gamma in response to ConA as opposed to 85% of the cultures derived from normal blood donors. However, the yields in patient-derived cultures that were responsive, were not lower than those in cultures from controls. Production of HuIFN-alpha after stimulation(More)
