Despite the important effects of diet and parasite infection on male reproductive behavior, few studies have simultaneously addressed their influence on intrasexual selection (male–male competition). We examined the synergistic effects of 2 naturally varying environmental factors, lifetime food intake and infection, with the monogenean parasite Gyrodactylus(More)
Dietary carotenoids have been shown to confer immunological benefits to some species of animals in which males also use these pigments to attract mates. Thus, the potential exists for an allocation trade-off between the sexual and immunological functions of carotenoids. Food availability may also influence immune system function. The present study examined(More)
The relationship between anti-parasite IgA antibody levels in plasma and the periparturient egg rise in sheep was investigated. Ostertagia circumcincta larvae (5000 third stage larvae three times weekly) were administered to three groups of seven adult immune ewes from 12 weeks before until three weeks after lambing (group 1) or from six (group 2) or 14(More)
The isolation of Chlamydia in cell culture (Gordon, Harper, Quan, Treharne, Dwyer, and Garland, 1969) from urethral material from three of seven men who had presented because of acute nonspecific urethritis (NSU) was reported by Dunlop, Hare, Darougar, Jones, and Rice (1969). Isolates were also obtained from cervical material from one of three sexual(More)
The HLA-B*27 allele is overrepresented in patients who control HIV-1 replication without antiretroviral therapy. CD8(+) T cell responses that target the immunodominant KK10 epitope in Gag are thought to play a major role in this control, and escape at R264 of KK10 is often associated with dramatic virologic breakthrough. We present a case in which an(More)
Colposcopy and biopsy were carried out at diagnosis and at follow up of 222 women. Of 322 cervical biopsy specimens taken, 174 were from women with chlamydial cervicitis (patients) and 48 from control women (both at diagnosis) and 100 from 76 patients and seven controls at follow up. Of the 174 patients with chlamydial cervicitis, 158 (91%) had erythema(More)
