The intranasal inoculation of volunteers with living partially attenuated strains of influenza A and B viruses offers a new opportunity to determine the protective effect of serum haemagglutin-inhibiting antibody against a strictly homologous virus, under conditions where the time and dosage of the infective challenge can be controlled, the scoring of(More)
In a selected group of 103 babies referred with neonatal conjunctivitis Neisseria gonorrhoeae was isolated from 11 and Chlamydia trachomatis from 33. Concurrent infection was present in three. On toddler sibling developed chlamydial conjunctivitis. After treatment C. trachomatis was re-isolated from six babies during the follow-up period. The discharge(More)
The number of intracytoplasmic inclusions of Chlamydia trachomatis produced in McCoy cell monolayer cultures infected with a constant inoculum of a recently isolated genital strain was compared in cultures of untreated replicating cells and in monolayers which had been incubated in the presence of cortisol at initial extracellular concentrations between(More)
In two retrospective Liverpool surveys the domestic, family, dietary, and medical environments of the mothers of children affected by anencephaly or spina bifida, or both (ASB) were examined. None seemed to be of more than minor importance and the findings of others were therefore examined to see if they suggested a major factor. The most promising lead(More)
In 580 women with Chlamydia trachonmatis infection of the cervix, the degree of the infection was assessed by counting the number of chlamydial inclusions which developed in McCoy cell monolayers inoculated with cervical swab material under standardised conditions. In 34% of these women inclusion counts were <100 per monolayer whereas in 36% the counts were(More)
Exudate from Bartholin's ducts from 30 selected patients was investigated for Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. N. gonorrhoeae was isolated from the duct exudate in 24 patients and C. trachomatis in nine. Concurrent infection of the ducts was present in seven (29.2%); the remaining two patients were sexual contacts of men with non-specific(More)
Cervical and endourethral swabs from 360 untreated women attending a sexually transmitted disease (STD) clinic were cultured for Chlamydia trachomatis and other genitourinary pathogens. The patients included contacts of men with non-gonococcal urethritis, women with gonorrhoea, and those in whom symptoms suggestive of urinary tract infection were the main(More)
