The product-limit incidence of Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex (MAC) bacteremia in 1006 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-positive patients followed at one institution over a 3-year period from the day of AIDS diagnosis with monthly lysis-centrifugation blood cultures was 21% +/- 2% SE at 1 year and 43% +/- 3% at 2 years. The product-limit(More)
Tactile sensor systems are an essential prerequisite for the implementation of complex manipulation and exploration tasks using robots. Tac-tile exploration has not yet found its way into many laboratories, because most tactile sensors are technically demanding and expensive. The desire to perform real-time control and pattern recognition with tactile(More)
A major goal for the realization of a new generation of intelligent robots is the capability of instructing work tasks by interactive demonstration. To make such a process efficient and convenient for the human user requires that both the robot and the user can establish and maintain a common focus of attention. We describe a hybrid architecture that(More)
The relationship between a history of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) and serum titers to cytomegalovirus (CMV) among homosexual patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) was studied. Individuals with a history of AIDS and biopsy-proven or clinically confirmed KS were identified and compared with AIDS patients who did not have a history of KS. By(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the efficacy of fluconazole prophylaxis against systemic fungal infections in HIV-positive patients. DESIGN Open label treatment compared with historical controls. SETTING Patients were seen at the Parkland Memorial Hospital HIV Clinic, Dallas, Texas, USA between 1 March 1990 and 28 February 1991. PATIENTS, PARTICIPANTS Three(More)
BACKGROUND Survival, and the incidence of events that define the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), are known to be inversely related to the CD4 count in patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection. We wished to quantify this relationship more precisely, particularly for patients with CD4 counts of less than 50/mm3. METHODS Prospective(More)
