Animal model studies and human epidemiological studies have shown that some infectious diseases develop primarily in individuals with an inherited predisposition. A heritable contribution to the development of severe influenza virus infection (i.e., that which results in death) has not previously been hypothesized or tested. Evidence for a heritable(More)
Adaptive resistance to the bactericidal effect of an aminoglycoside antibiotic was induced in Pseudomonas aeruginosa and other aerobic gram-negative bacilli by initial exposure to the drug. Both subinhibitory and inhibitory concentrations produced resistance in bacterial cells surviving the effects of the initial ionic binding. Development of drug(More)
The first exposure of gram-negative bacilli to an aminoglycoside antibiotic in vitro induces a biphasic bactericidal response and adaptive drug resistance (G. L. Daikos, G. G. Jackson, V. T. Lolans, and D. M. Livermore, J. Infect. Dis. 162:414-420, 1990; G. G. Jackson, G. L. Daikos, and V. T. Lolans, J. Infect. Dis. 162:408-413, 1990). The therapeutic(More)
One hundred fourteen articles published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases in 1982 were evaluated for the occurrence of eight commonly made statistical errors. Seventy-one percent of Original Articles and 50% of presentations in the Data Forum used statistical methods to analyze results. Almost all of the articles that used statistics contained at least(More)
Pyelitis with acute and chronic pyelonephritis and also primary chronic pyelitis were easily initiated in female rats by a single non-traumatic retrograde infusion of bacteria into the urinary tract. The virulence of the bacterial species and the time of observation were related to the type and extent of lesions, but pyelitis regardless of the virulence(More)
A high-pressure liquid chromatographic method for the quantitative determination of netilmicin in plasma was developed. The procedures involve acetonitrile protein precipitation, methylene chloride extraction, and dansylation to form the fluorescent dansyl derivative of netilmicin, which is extracted into ethyl acetate and chromatographed on a reverse-phase(More)
Cinoxacin, a new synthetic antibacterial agent with in vitro activity against all species of Enterobacteriaceae, was used in the treatment of urinary tract infections in 20 patients. The dose of cinoxacin was 250 mg orally every 6 h for 10 days. The etiological agents were Escherichia coli in fifteen, Klebsiella-Enterobacter in five, Proteus mirabilis in(More)
Multiple mutations in the reverse transcriptase (RT) gene were observed in a drug-resistant isolate of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV1) from an individual having prolonged (greater than 2 years) zidovudine (AZT) therapy. The virus replicated in PBMC's in the presence of very high concentrations of AZT (125 microM). Drug-sensitive strains were(More)
The efficacy and toxicity of ganciclovir given by intravenous or intravenous plus intravitreal injection were studied in nine patients with cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis; seven with AIDS and two with drug induced immunodeficiency. Five patients had retinitis with macular involvement in six sighted eyes; six patients had only peripheral retinitis in seven(More)
