Seroprotective groups of Lyme borreliosis spirochetes from North America and Europe.
Five distinct seroprotective groups among North American and European isolates of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu stricto, Borrelia garinii, and Borrelia afzelii have been identified using the in vitroExpand

Memory B Cells and Pneumococcal Antibody After Splenectomy1
Splenectomized patients are susceptible to bloodstream infections with encapsulated bacteria, potentially due to loss of blood filtering but also defective production of anticarbohydrate Ab. RecentExpand

Attainment of at least a very good partial response after induction treatment is an important surrogate of longer survival for multiple myeloma
The importance of achieving a very good partial response or better (⩾VGPR) after induction treatment of myeloma has traditionally only been discussed in the context of high-dose therapy with auto-SCTExpand

Rapid detection of bacteria in cerebrospinal fluid by immunofluorescence staining on membrane filters.
A filter-fluorescent-antibody (FFA) staining procedure was developed for detection of bacteria in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). The sensitivity of this procedure was determined and compared with that ofExpand

Development of destructive arthritis in vaccinated hamsters challenged with Borrelia burgdorferi.
We present the first direct evidence that adverse effects, particularly severe destructive arthritis, can develop in vaccinated hamsters after challenge with Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato isolates.Expand

Involvement of CD4+ T lymphocytes in induction of severe destructive Lyme arthritis in inbred LSH hamsters.
We determined that Borrelia burgdorferi-specific CD4+ T lymphocytes are responsible for the development of severe destructive Lyme arthritis and affect the production of borreliacidal antibody.Expand

Borrelia burgdorferi-specific T lymphocytes induce severe destructive Lyme arthritis.
This is the first documentation that Borrelia burgdorferi-specific T lymphocytes are involved in the pathogenesis of Lyme arthritis. We present direct evidence that T lymphocytes obtained from inbredExpand

Abilities of OspA proteins from different seroprotective groups of Borrelia burgdorferi to protect hamsters from infection.
The ability of vaccination with recombinant OspA from six seroprotective groups of Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato to induce protection against infection with homologous and other Lyme spirochetesExpand

Rapid susceptibility testing of Candida albicans by flow cytometry.
The emerging magnitude of human fungal infections has renewed interest in developing rapid and standardized methods for susceptibility testing. We demonstrated that susceptibility testing of CandidaExpand
