Secretory IgA (sIgA) purified from colostrum and breast milk obtained from 14 women inhibited the localized adherence of an enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) to HEp-2 cells. Inhibition decreased as lactation continued even when the concentration of sIgA was maintained constant at 1 mg/ml. sIgA responded to a 94-kDa plasmid-encoded outer membrane(More)
373 (59%) out of 636 faecal specimens obtained during the first 2 years of life of 72 Mexican children yielded adherent Escherichia coli (HEp-2 cells). Strains with localised adherence were significantly associated with acute non-bloody diarrhoea, whereas strains with aggregative adherence were significantly associated with persistent diarrhoea. Half the(More)
Colonization of the intestine with Campylobacter jejuni was followed longitudinally from birth in a cohort of 75 rural children with fecal cultures taken every fortnight and every time they had diarrhea. Only 25% of children initially colonized with C. jejuni during the first year of life, and 12% of children initially colonized during the second had(More)
The olfactory bulb (OB) is rich in the number and variety of neurotransmitter and neuropeptide containing cells, in particular in the glomerular layer. Several reports suggest that numbers of some periglomerular phenotypes could change depending on age. However, it is unclear whether the different classes of periglomerular interneurons are modified or are(More)
