OBJECTIVE Despite advances in antiretroviral treatment, a large number of HIV-infected patients still require hospitalization. This study describes the characteristics of HIV patients requiring hospitalization before and after the advent of potent antiretroviral therapies. METHODS Information was collected on all HIV-positive patients admitted to the New(More)
Effective antiretroviral therapy initially resulted in large decreases in hospitalization rates of HIV-infected patients. The goal of this study was to determine whether these gains were being maintained in 2001. A cross-sectional study of hospital admission characteristics during four time periods was performed.

Immunoglobulins which have been focused to their isoelectric points in thin-layer polyacrylamide gels can be transferred by diffusion to the surface of cellulose nitrate sheets with retention of the original focusing patterns. IgG can be detected with peroxidase-linked antiserum. Unlike polyacrylamide gel, cellulose nitrate offers no permeability barrier,(More)
Immunoglobulin G (IgG) in soluble and particulate fractions of discrete tissue samples from multiple sclerosis (MS) brain was analysed. Supernatant IgG/albumin rations and particulate-bound IgG levels were highest in samples dissected from MS plaques and adjacent white matter. Acid extracts of particulate fractions from the equivalent of 1 g of MS plaque(More)
Wuchereria bancrofti is a mosquito-borne filarial nematode that commonly invades lymphatic vessels. Common clinical manifestations include elephantiasis, orchitis, epididymitis, and chyluria.
