HLA-G genotypes and pregnancy outcome in couples with unexplained recurrent miscarriage.
HLA-G is a non-classical human leukocyte antigen expressed primarily in fetal tissues at the maternal-fetal interface. This expression pattern is unique among HLA genes and suggests that HLA-G may beExpand

Clearance of Citrobacter rodentium Requires B Cells but Not Secretory Immunoglobulin A (IgA) or IgM Antibodies
ABSTRACT Citrobacter rodentium, a murine model pathogen for human enteropathogenic Escherichia coli, predominantly colonizes the lumen and mucosal surface of the colon and cecum and causes cryptExpand

Decreased expression of tumor necrosis factor family receptors involved in humoral immune responses in preterm neonates.
Neonates have an increased rate of infection with encapsulated bacteria compared with older children and adults because of diminished antibody responses to T-independent (TI) antigens such asExpand

A polyclonal outbreak of predominantly VanB vancomycin-resistant enterococci in northeast Ohio. Northeast Ohio Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococcus Surveillance Program.
We studied the molecular epidemiology of vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) isolated in northeast Ohio during 1996 and examined the association between isolation of VRE from samples other thanExpand

Significant variation in serotype-specific immunogenicity of the seven-valent Streptococcus pneumoniae capsular polysaccharide-CRM197 conjugate vaccine occurs despite vigorous T cell help induced by
Streptococcus pneumoniae capsular polysaccharides (PnPSs) induce protective antibodies but are T cell-independent type 2 antigens and are poorly immunogenic in infants. Conjugate vaccines of PnPSsExpand

B- and T-Cell Immune Responses to Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccines: Divergence between Carrier- and Polysaccharide-Specific Immunogenicity
ABSTRACT Conjugation of various serotypes of pneumococcal polysaccharide (PnPS) to carrier protein enhances the magnitude of the polysaccharide-specific antibody response, presumably by elicitingExpand
