The roles of IgG and secretory IgA in the protection of the respiratory tract (RT) against influenza infection remain unclear. Passive immunization with Ab doses resulting in serum IgG anti-influenza… Expand
Loss of upper respiratory tract immunity with parenteral feeding.
OBJECTIVE The authors examine the effect of route and type of nutrition on an established upper respiratory tract immunity and investigate potential mechanisms for increased pneumonia rates in… Expand
Route and type of nutrition influence mucosal immunity to bacterial pneumonia.
OBJECTIVE To develop a model of established respiratory immunity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa pneumonia and to investigate the effects of route and type of nutrition on this immunity. SUMMARY… Expand
Passive transfer of local immunity to influenza virus infection by IgA antibody.
Secretory IgA is presumed to be the mediator of mucosal immunity based on many studies that show a correlation between protection and secretory IgA titers; however, a causal relationship has not yet… Expand
Immunoglobulin A mediation of murine nasal anti-influenza virus immunity.
Most mice which have recovered from influenza virus infection are immune to reinfection with the same influenza virus. This immunity could be abrogated by the intranasal instillation of… Expand
Recovery of gut-associated lymphoid tissue and upper respiratory tract immunity after parenteral nutrition.
OBJECTIVE The authors characterize the recovery of parenteral nutrition-induced changes in gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) and upper respiratory tract immunity with enteral nutrition and… Expand
Cytokines in sleep regulation.
The central thesis of this essay is that the cytokine network in brain is a key element in the humoral regulation of sleep responses to infection and in the physiological regulation of sleep. We… Expand
Induction of a secretory IgA response in the murine female urogenital tract by immunization of the lungs with liposome-supplemented viral subunit antigen.
This study demonstrates that liposomes administered to the lower respiratory tract of mice have the capacity to stimulate secretory IgA (s-IgA) antibody production in the female urogenital system.… Expand
Glycyl-L-glutamine-enriched total parenteral nutrition maintains small intestine gut-associated lymphoid tissue and upper respiratory tract immunity.

BACKGROUND i.v. administration of a total parenteral nutrition (TPN) solution results in small intestinal gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) atrophy, lowers small intestinal immunoglobulin A (IgA)… Expand

Abstract Sleepiness is a common perception during viral infection. Nevertheless, very little is known about the effects of viral infection on sleep. The aim of the present study was to test whether… Expand
