Changing patterns of mortality across Europe in patients infected with HIV-1
BACKGROUND The introduction of combination antiretroviral therapy and protease inhibitors has led to reports of falling mortality rates among people infected with HIV-1. We examined the change inExpand
Organ-specific autoantibodies are possible markers for reproductive failure: a prospective study in an in-vitro fertilization-embryo transfer programme.
This study was conducted to investigate the usefulness of organ-specific autoantibodies as possible markers for reproductive failure. Antithyroid and antiovarian autoantibody concentrations wereExpand
Predominance of the autoimmune response to myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) in multiple sclerosis: Reactivity to the extracellular domain of MOG is directed against three main regions
Our previous analysis of the T cell reactivity to myelin antigens in a group of 24 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and 16 control individuals revealed that the autoimmune response to myelinExpand
Temporary inhibition of antibody-dependent, cell-mediated cytotoxicity by pretreatment of human attacking cells with ammonium chloride.
Treatment of lymphoid cell preparations with ammonium chloride buffers to remove contaminating erythroid cells markedly reduced the ability of these cells to function as attacking cells in antibodyExpand
Low-frequency drug-resistant HIV-1 and risk of virological failure to first-line NNRTI-based ART: a multicohort European case–control study using centralized ultrasensitive 454 pyrosequencing
Objectives It is still debated if pre-existing minority drug-resistant HIV-1 variants (MVs) affect the virological outcomes of first-line NNRTI-containing ART. Methods This Europe-wide case–controlExpand
Platelet Antibody Binding and Spontaneous Aggregation in 21 Lupus Anticoagulant Patients
In order to ascertain the role of the antiphospolipid antibody in the pathogenesis of thrombotic disorders, a study of 21 lupus anticoagulant‐positive patients was done by a number of serologic andExpand
Lichen myxedematosus (scleromyxedema) serum stimulates hyaluronic acid and prostaglandin E production by human fibroblasts.
Serum from a 45-year-old patient with scleromyxedema (withdrawn prior to therapy) was added to synovial and foreskin human fibroblast cultures and its effect compared to that of normal human serum.Expand
Carbamazepine induced systemic lupus erythematosus.
Dissection of the humoral immune response toward an immunodominant epitope of HIV: a model for the analysis of antibody diversity in HIV+ individuals
Understanding the dynamics of the humoral immune response to HIV epitopes in the presence of genetic drift and antigenic variation of the virus may reveal critical elements of protective immunityExpand
Fatal necrotizing esophagitis due toPenicillium chrysogenum in a patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome
Although blue-green molds of the genusPenicillium are ubiquitous in the human environment, invasive penicilliosis is uncommon and primarily encountered among immunosuppressed patients. A patient withExpand
