The concentrations of C3d in the plasma and of C-reactive protein (CRP), immune complexes and rheumatoid factor in the serum were measured in 99 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Most patients had raised levels, the values of which correlated with disease activity assessed according to a newly described index based on multivariate analysis of subjective,(More)
Immunohistochemical staining was performed on biopsies and cytological samples from normal, dysplastic and neoplastic squamous epithelia using the monoclonal Ca 1 antibody. The results of staining 92 biopsies and 20 cytological samples are described and it is reported that positive staining with Ca 1 antibody was detected in normal, dysplastic and(More)
In distinguishing between infection and rejection after human lung transplantation clinical and radiological features were unhelpful, and even confusing. However, incipient rejection could be predicted and distinguished from infection by monitoring alterations in lymphocyte activity by the rosette inhibition test. Earlier prediction seems possible by(More)
Expression of HLA DR antigens on T lymphocytes indicates that these cells are actively involved in an immune response. Raised levels of activated T lymphocytes were found in 14 of 15 recently diagnosed but in only 7 of 28 long-standing insulin-dependent diabetics. 9 of the recently diagnosed patients retested 6 months later still had high levels of(More)
Determination of histocompatibility antigens in 63 patients with alcoholic liver disease showed that HLA-B8 was more prevalent in patients with cirrhosis than in controls, but among those with fatty liver and minimal fibrosis the prevalence of this antigen was normal. Another noticeable difference was the absence of HLAA28 in the cirrhotic group. In the(More)
Using monoclonal antibodies OKT3, OKT4 and OKT8, T lymphocyte subpopulations were determined in eight normal male volunteers. One month later, the T cell populations were again measured before and during an insulin stress test. Compared to the month before, there was a statistically significant reduction in the numbers of OKT4 cells (P less than 0.01) in(More)
In vitro studies implicate classical and alternative complement pathway activation in the pathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. To ascertain their importance in vivo, activation fragments of the classical (C4d), alternative (Ba), and common (C3d) pathways were measured and fragment to parent molecule ratios derived in 74 HIV-infected(More)
