The long terminal repeat (LTR) region of HIV-1 promotes and modulates proviral transcription. LTR genetic variability might influence viral replication and disease progression. Proviral LTR sequences from 32 HIV-1-infected individuals showing different rates of disease progression were examined. Non-progressors (NP, n = 11) were individuals with high and(More)
The effect of siliconized latex urinary catheters on the in vitro activity of amikacin, ceftazidime, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin and meropenem againstPseudomonas aeruginosa was determined by a microdilution assay. MICs of amikacin and meropenem increased at least 4-fold and 16-fold respectively in the presence of catheter material. The effect of catheter(More)
The in vitro activity of vancomycin and teicoplanin (fourfold the MBC), alone and in combination with amikacin (16 mg/l) or rifampin (1 mg/l), againstStaphylococcus epidermidis (slime-producing and non slime-producing strains) biofilms on different plastic catheters was evaluated. The addition of amikacin or rifampin significantly increased the activity of(More)
