Neonatal exposure to Gross murine leukemia virus results in a profound inhibition of the virus-specific T and B cell responses of adult animals. Animals exposed to virus as neonates exhibit a marked depression in virus-specific T cell function as measured by the virtual absence of in vivo delayed type hypersensitivity responses and in vitro proliferative(More)
Exposure of newborn mice to Gross murine leukemia virus (GMuLV) results in persistent viral infection of the central nervous system (CNS) white matter. Animals exposed to virus as neonates showed a marked depression in GMuLV-specific B lymphocyte function as evidenced by significant decreases in adult and neonatal anti-GMuLV antibody levels.(More)
Introduction: Cytolethal distending toxin (Cdt) is potentially one of several virulence factors of Aggregatibacter actinomycetemcomitans, the prime etiological agent of localized aggressive periodontitis (LAP). Little is known regarding the Cdt-specific antibody response in humans. The current study is a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the(More)
