An unusually prolonged outbreak of typhoid fever, from 1988 to 1994, in Terrassa (Barcelona, Spain), was caused by a casual food handler who was a carrier. The pattern of this outbreak suggested intermittent low-level exposure to Salmonella typhi. We found 70 patients with S. typhi infections, 52 of whom were available for study. Medical records were(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is used in a range of immunodeficiency states that require a broad spectrum of protective antibodies to a range of common pathogens. A comparison of the antigen-specific antibody profile of preparations of an IVIG (Vigam) derived from US and UK sourced plasma was performed, and these preparations(More)
The human pentraxin proteins, serum amyloid P component (SAP) and C-reactive protein (CRP) are important in routine clinical diagnosis, SAP for systemic amyloidosis and CRP for monitoring the non-specific acute phase response. They are also targets for novel therapies currently in development but their roles in health and disease are controversial. Thus,(More)
A dermal mucinosis, visualized as dermal alcianophilic material, is occasionally present in canine hypothyroidism (myxedema). Various histochemical reactions (alcian blue/periodic acid-Schiff [PAS], alcian blue at pH 2.6, alcian blue at pH 1.0, critical electrolytical concentrations with and without dimethylsulfoxide, differential hydrolysis by(More)
The monosaccharide transporter from the plasma membranes of rat adipocytes and insulin-stimulated adipocytes has been reconstituted in sonicated liposomes. The stereospecific D-glucose uptake by liposomes made from a range of phospholipids and incorporating fatty acids has been investigated. D-Glucose uptake is correlated with an increase in lipid fluidity(More)
The development and properties of a liquid intravenous immunoglobulin (Gammaplex(®)), of high purity, stability and functional activity, is described. Virus and TSE reduction by specific steps in the process were evaluated by spiking studies using small-scale models. The removal of procoagulant activity was determined using immunochemical and functional(More)
