Antiretroviral regimens in pregnancy and breast-feeding in Botswana.
BACKGROUND The most effective highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) to prevent mother-to-child transmission of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) in pregnancy and its efficacy duringExpand

Pneumonia remains a common and potentially serious infection in children. This review summarizes the problems involved in making the diagnosis and establishing a cause and offers a practical guide toExpand
A Behavioral and Cognitive Profile of Clinically Stable HIV-Infected Children
OBJECTIVE. The purpose of this research was to characterize behavioral and cognitive profiles of clinically and immunologically stable antiretroviral-experienced HIV-infected children. METHODS. TwoExpand
Antigenic characterization of respiratory syncytial virus strains with monoclonal antibodies.
To study the antigenic characteristics of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), we developed and evaluated monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to three strains of RSV: 11 to Long, 4 to 18537, and 9 to A2. SixExpand
Evolution and transmission of stable CTL escape mutations in HIV infection
Increasing evidence indicates that potent anti-HIV-1 activity is mediated by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs); however, the effects of this immune pressure on viral transmission and evolution have notExpand
Breastfeeding plus infant zidovudine prophylaxis for 6 months vs formula feeding plus infant zidovudine for 1 month to reduce mother-to-child HIV transmission in Botswana: a randomized trial: the
CONTEXT Postnatal transmission of human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV) via breastfeeding reverses gains achieved by perinatal antiretroviral interventions. OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy andExpand
Growth in suckling-mouse brain of "IBV-like" viruses from patients with upper respiratory tract disease.
Recovery in tracheal organ cultures of novel viruses from patients with respiratory disease.
Despite recent advances in tissue culture methodology, only 20 to 35 per cent of adults with acute upper respiratory tract illness yield viruses which can be cultivated by the standard virus recoveryExpand
History and Recent Advances in Coronavirus Discovery
Human coronaviruses, first characterized in the 1960s, are responsible for a substantial proportion of upper respiratory tract infections in children. Since 2003, at least 5 new human coronavirusesExpand
A Polymorphism in the Regulatory Region of the CC-Chemokine Receptor 5 Gene Influences Perinatal Transmission of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 to African-American Infants
ABSTRACT There are natural mutations in the coding and noncoding regions of the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) CC-chemokine coreceptor 5 (CCR5) and in the related CCR2 protein (theExpand
