Comparative study of superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase levels in erythrocytes of different animals.
Summary Levels of erythrocyte superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase have been determined in a variety of animal species. In the case of catalase and glutathione peroxidaseExpand

Involvement of Bcl-2 and IL-2R in HIV-positive patients whose CD4 cell counts fail to increase rapidly with highly active antiretroviral therapy
Objective Combination antiretroviral therapy in a subset of HIV-infected patients, here called CD4-low responders (CD4-LR), fails to produce a rapid rise in CD4 cell counts despite effective controlExpand

Effects of interleukin-2 therapy combined with highly active antiretroviral therapy on immune restoration in HIV-1 infection: a randomized controlled trial
Background: Intermittent interleukin-2 (IL-2) therapy leads to a sustained increase of CD4 T cells in HIV-1-infected patients. Methods: Symptom-free HIV-1-infected patients who were naive to allExpand

Rapid effect of interleukin-2 therapy in human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients whose CD4 cell counts increase only slightly in response to combined antiretroviral treatment.
Combined antiretroviral treatment in some human immunodeficiency virus-infected persons does not lead to a rapid increase in CD4 cell counts, and these patients may remain susceptible toExpand

Novel Alpha Interferon (IFN-α) Variant with Improved Inhibitory Activity against Hepatitis C Virus Genotype 1 Replication Compared to IFN-α2b Therapy in a Subgenomic Replicon System
ABSTRACT Hepatitis C virus (HCV) treatment is based on the association of pegylated alpha interferon (IFN-α) and ribavirin. To improve the level of sustained virological response to treatment,Expand

Distribution of superoxide dismutase and glutathione peroxidase in the carp: erythrocyte manganese SOD.
Abstract A non copper containing superoxide dismutase (Cu-SOD), presumably manganese superoxide dismutase (Mn-SOD), has been identified in carp erythrocytes. Erythrocyte catalase is low, glutathioneExpand

Comparative analysis of the immunopharmacological properties of three new nitrosourea analogues: RPCNU, RFCNU and Chlorozotocin.
Three sugar derivatives of chloroethyl nitrosoureas: RPCNU, RFCNU and Chlorozotocin (CLZ) were examined for their effect on the immune system in mice when administered at the minimal antineoplasticExpand

Modulation of immune responses in mice by oral administration of niflumic acid.
The in vivo effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) on the host immune system are still poorly understood. However, through inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis, NSAIDs may exhibitExpand
