CD4 molecule, a surface marker of helper T lymphocytes, interacts with gp 120 of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) with a high affinity and, hence, serves as a virus receptor. Soluble chimeric CD4-immunoglobulin (Ig) possesses anti-HIV activity due to its binding activity to gp 120. Furthermore, this recombinant molecule has unique Ig-like properties(More)
During human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1 infection, T lymphocytes and macrophages play dual roles. They are the primary targets for virus replication, but they are also primary effector cells in acquired and innate immunity, respectively. The authors are now investigating how these roles come together in the response of human monocyte-derived macrophages(More)
Human T-cell leukaemia virus type 1 (HTLV-I), the aetiological agent of adult T-cell leukaemia (ATL) and tropical spastic paraparesis (TSP/HAM), transforms human T-cells in vivo and in vitro. The Tax protein of HTLV-I is essential for cellular transformation as well as viral and cellular gene transactivation. The interaction of Tax with cellular proteins is(More)
Patients undergoing CABG surgery have abnormal cardiovascular physiology and are commonly associated with multivessels disease, have compromised ventricular function and are often associated with other co morbid conditions. Aim of the study was to compare the peroperative hemodynamic effect in CABG surgery before aortic cannulation of two anesthetic(More)
Regional block has its own unique place in modem anesthetic practice increasing popularity over 30-40 years has followed better understanding of the technique and acceptance than the incidence of side effects is tow. These depend not only on the correctly performed procedures but the correct design of the needle is also important. The purpose of this(More)
