Identification and Cloning of a Cryptococcal Deacetylase That Produces Protective Immune Responses
ABSTRACT Cell-mediated immunity plays a crucial role in host defenses against Cryptococcus (Filobasidiella) neoformans. Therefore, the identification of cryptococcal antigens capable of producing… Expand
Role of IL-10 in a neonatal mouse listeriosis model.
This study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that altered IL-10 production plays a role in the increased susceptibility of neonates to listeriosis. Plasma IL-10 levels were measured in neonatal… Expand
Production of TNF alpha and interleukin 6 by differentiated U937 cells infected with Leishmania major.
Several cytokines play a crucial role in the defense of the host against protozoa belonging to the genus Leishmania. However, the role of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) and interleukin 6… Expand
Interleukin-6 production by human monocytes stimulated with Cryptococcus neoformans components.
In order to ascertain if Cryptococcus neoformans components can induce interleukin-6 (IL-6) production, we stimulated human whole blood with purified capsular products. Their potencies in stimulating… Expand
Role of gamma interferon in a neonatal mouse model of group B streptococcal disease.
The aim of this study was to assess the role of gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) in a neonatal mouse model of group B streptococcal (GBS) sepsis. IFN-gamma was produced by spleen cells at 24, 48, and 72… Expand

Fungal nosocomial infections continue to be a serious problem among hospitalized patients, decreasing quality of life and adding millions of euros to healthcare costs. The aim of this study was to… Expand
Survival of a neglected case of brain abscess caused by Cladophialophora bantiana.
Cladophialophora bantiana is an uncommon fungus related to the black yeasts which causes, if untreated, mostly fatal cerebral infections in immunosuppressed and competent patients. We report a case… Expand
Microsatellite-based genotyping of Candida parapsilosis sensu stricto isolates reveals dominance and persistence of a particular epidemiological clone among neonatal intensive care unit patients.

GITR is a gene belonging to the nerve growth factor-tumor necrosis factor receptor (NGF/TNFR) family that is preferentially expressed in lymphoid tissues, is overexpressed following dexamethasone… Expand
Gene structure and chromosomal assignment of mouse GITR, a member of the tumor necrosis factor/nerve growth factor receptor family.
GITR is a type I transmembrane protein that belongs to the tumor necrosis factor/nerve growth factor receptor (TNF/NGFR) family. This receptor is preferentially expressed in activated T lymphocytes… Expand
