The cholesterol-suppressive actions of Palmvitee and γ-tocotrienol were assessed in hypercholesterolemic subjects after acclimation to the American Heart Association Step 1 dietary regimen for four and eight weeks, respectively. The four-week dietary regimen alone elicited a 5% decrease (P<0.05) in the cholesterol level of the 36 subjects. Subjects(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine baseline predictors of T-cell receptor rearrangement excision circle (TREC) levels and their changes during treatment with combined antiretroviral therapy. METHODS Peripheral blood and lymph node lymphocytes were examined for the presence of TREC by real-time polymerase chain reaction and circulating lymphocyte phenotypes were(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVES Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma is a primary lung neoplasm of variable histopathologic, radiologic, and clinical expression. There are three cell types described in bronchioloalveolar carcinoma: Clara cells, mucin-producing cells, and alveolar type II epithelial cells. It is unclear whether these three tumor cell types are associated with a(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy of fluconazole prophylaxis against systemic fungal infections in HIV-positive patients. DESIGN Open label treatment compared with historical controls. SETTING Patients were seen at the Parkland Memorial Hospital HIV Clinic, Dallas, Texas, USA between 1 March 1990 and 28 February 1991. PATIENTS, PARTICIPANTS Three(More)
BACKGROUND It is important that serological assays detect antibodies to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in all infected individuals, including those infected with less prevalent, more diverse subtypes. METHODS Performance of the ADVIA Centaur HIV 1/O/2 Enhanced (EHIV) Assay was tested on 1344 samples from HIV-positive subjects, 6061 samples from groups(More)
OBJECTIVE Comparison of stavudine (d4T), didanosine (ddI) and indinavir (IDV) with zidovudine (ZDV), lamivudine (3TC) and IDV in HIV-1 infected patients. DESIGN Randomized, open-label. SETTING Fourteen HIV Clinical Research Centers. PATIENTS Two-hundred and five patients with less than 4 weeks antiretroviral treatment, naive to 3TC and protease(More)
The goal of this study was to optimize the hydroxyurea dosage in HIV-infected patients, and to minimize the toxicity and maximize the antiviral efficacy of the hydroxyurea-didanosine combination. In a randomized, open-label study (RIGHT 702, a multicenter trial performed in private and institutional practices), three daily doses (600 microg, 800-900 microg,(More)
The case of a 5-year-old girl who survived a near-fatal ingestion of yew plant leaves after treatment with CPR, transcutaneous pacing, and digoxin-specific FAB antibody fragments is presented. Multiple rhythm disturbances, including profound bradycardia, occurred. She required endotracheal intubation, external chest compressions, and application of a(More)
In a multicenter, randomized, open-label, dose-ranging study to determine the relative effects of three dose levels of stavudine on CD4 lymphocyte count, weight gain, and hematologic variables in patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), 152 patients with CD4 lymphocyte counts < or = 600/mm3 received stavudine at 0.1 mg/kg/day (n = 51), 0.5(More)
There have been no reports of severe haemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN) due to Gerbich (Ge) antibodies. Two babies with HDN due to anti-Ge3, both born to the same mother, are described. The anti-Ge appeared in the first pregnancy and was not detectable in the first trimester, the babies' reticulocyte and bilirubin values were not greatly elevated(More)
