In Vivo Uptake of Chitosan Microparticles by Murine Peyer's Patches: Visualization Studies using Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy and Immunohistochemistry
Although oral vaccination has numerous advantages over parenteral injection, degradation of the vaccine and low uptake by the gut associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) still complicate the development ofExpand

APOE Genotype: No Influence on Galantamine Treatment Efficacy Nor on Rate of Decline in Alzheimer’s Disease
Apolipoprotein E (APOE) has been extensively demonstrated to be a genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Associations of APOE genotype have been reported with age at AD onset, rate ofExpand

Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV‐1) circulating recombinant form 02_AG (CRF02_AG) has a higher in vitro replicative capacity than its parental subtypes A and G
Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV‐1) circulating recombinant form (CRF) 02_AG is the predominant subtype in Cameroon, even more prevalent than the parental subtypes A and G. An importantExpand

Circulating recombinant form (CRF) 37_cpx: an old strain in Cameroon composed of diverse, genetically distant lineages of subtypes A and G.
HIV-1 in Cameroon is genetically diverse, but is predominated by the circulating recombinant form (CRF) 02_AG, which cocirculates among an array of other CRFs, unique recombinant forms (URFs), andExpand

Cross-Clade Neutralizing Activity of Human Anti-V3 Monoclonal Antibodies Derived from the Cells of Individuals Infected with Non-B Clades of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1
ABSTRACT The majority of global human immunodeficiency virus infections are caused by viruses characterized by a GPGQ motif at the tip of the V3 loop. Characterization of anti-V3 monoclonalExpand

Genetic Analysis of HIV-1 Strains in Rural Eastern Cameroon Indicates the Evolution of Second-Generation Recombinants to Circulating Recombinant Forms
Summary: The HIV-1 genetic diversity in most parts of Cameroon is well described and shown to be very broad. However, little is known about the composition of the HIV-1 epidemic in the rural parts ofExpand

HIV-1 CRF09_cpx circulates in the North West Province of Cameroon where CRF02_AG infections predominate and recombinant strains are common.
This study describes the HIV-1 genetic diversity that currently circulates in Bamenda, the provincial capital of the North West province of Cameroon. Phylogenetic analysis of the protease (pro) geneExpand

Identification of a novel circulating recombinant form (CRF) 36_cpx in Cameroon that combines two CRFs (01_AE and 02_AG) with ancestral lineages of subtypes A and G.
An array of CRFs have been identified in Cameroon, the most notable being CRF02_AG. HIV-1 in the East Province of Cameroon is particularly diverse: in a recent study, we found a high proportion ofExpand

Protease mutations in HIV-1 non-B strains infecting drug-naive villagers in Cameroon.
To describe the presence of protease inhibitor (PI) resistance-associated mutations and subtype distribution in drug-naive villagers of six provinces of Cameroon, we sequenced the protease (PR) geneExpand
