To evaluate the influence of the apolipoprotein E (ApoE) epsilon4 allele on the age at which Alzheimer-like lesions appear in the brain, we analyzed the degree of cerebral beta-amyloidosis and neurofibrillary tangle formation in the hippocampal formation and adjacent cortical areas 28, 27, and 36 of persons who had died between the ages of 50 and 93 years(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate if early treatment of primary HIV-1 infection (PHI) reduces viral set point and/or increases CD4 lymphocytes. METHODS Analysis of two prospective multi-centre PHI cohorts. HIV-1 RNA and CD4 lymphocytes in patients with transient treatment were compared to those in untreated patients. Time to CD4 lymphocyte decrease below 350/(More)
Retinal functions were studied in 7 patients with snowflake degeneration and correlated with fundus appearance. Despite the presence of vitreous turbidity, scotomatic glare sensitivity was slightly elevated in only one case. Retinal functions were affected more extensively in the late stages of the disease; however, abnormal retinal functions were also(More)
OBJECTIVES There is only little data on immune reconstitution in antiretroviral naive AIDS-patients with toxoplasmosis. The observation of several cases with reduced increase of CD4-cells upon start of antiretroviral treatment (ART) prompted us to investigate the topic using the ClinSurv cohort. METHODS 17 German HIV treatment centers contribute to(More)
Study Design Case report and review of the literature.

OBJECTIVE We have previously reported data from the German cohort of the multinational observational prospective RAINBOW survey which assessed the tolerability and efficacy of ritonavir-boosted saquinavir (SQV/r)-containing regimens over 48 weeks in routine clinical practice. This analysis presents data from antiretroviral (ART)-naive and pretreated but(More)
OBJECTIVE Avoiding abacavir in HIV-infected patients tested positive for HLA-B*5701 reduces the risk of abacavir hypersensitivity reaction (ABC-HSR). Our aim was to assess the costs of clinically suspected HSR and to estimate potential cost savings of implementing prospective HLA-B*5701-screening for HIV-infected patients initiating abacavir/lamivudine(More)
