Peripheral blood mononuclear cells from DLA typed dogs were treated with rabbit-anti-dog-beta 2-microglobulin and subsequently with goat-anti-rabbit-immunoglobulin in order to aggregate the DLA class I molecules on the cell membrane (lysostrip). Utilizing a panel of 70 defined DLA-A and DLA-B antisera, lymphocytes treated in this way showed resistance to(More)
In mice the majority of the immunoglobulins (Ig) in milk belongs to the IgA class. Prior to its transepithelial transportation into the milk, dimeric IgA (dIgA) is bound to the transmembrane form of the secretory component or polymeric Ig receptor (SC/pIgR). The latter is synthesized in the epithelial cells lining the ducts and alveoli of the mammary gland.(More)
At present non-invasive tests for diagnosing Schistosoma myelopathy are sub-optimal. We present a novel serological method, using paired liquor and serum samples, resulting in the diagnosis of Schistosoma myelopathy in a male patient with proximal muscle weakness. The patient recovered after praziquantel treatment.
Atevirdine mesylate (U-87201E) is a new nonnucleoside (bisheteroarylpiperazine) inhibitor of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 reverse transcriptase. In a double-blind, escalating single-dose study the safety, tolerance, and pharmacokinetics of atevirdine mesylate were investigated in 24 asymptomatic human immunodeficiency virus-seropositive male(More)
Four patients are described with a Strongyloides stercoralis infection. Several techniques to diagnose this infection are discussed. The so-called Baermann method is emphasised. Especially in chronic infections the combination of serology and the Baermann method seems the best diagnostic approach. Treatment with albendazole or ivermectin are suggested(More)
The objective of the study was to evaluate a rapid screening technique for the presence of mutations in the viral reverse transcriptase gene of HIV following prolonged therapy with zidovudine in patients with AIDS. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of 14 HIV-infected patients were analyzed by micro-titer point mutation assay (PMA) before therapy(More)
The Working Party on Antibiotic Policy (Dutch acronym is SWAB) is a Dutch organisation that develops guidelines for in-hospital antimicrobial therapy of bacterial infectious diseases. This present guideline describes the antimicrobial treatment for adult patients with infective endocarditis. The choice and duration of antimicrobial therapy is determined by(More)
Detergent-solubilized DLA class I antigens have been isolated by immunoprecipitation from peripheral blood lymphocytes with an anti-beta 2-microglobulin serum and an alloantiserum. Amino acid composition and NH2-terminal amino acid sequence analysis confirmed that the DLA light chain is identical to dog urinary beta 2-microglobulin, and that the DLA heavy(More)
The Working Party on Antibiotic Policy (Dutch acronym: SWAB) has developed guidelines for in-hospital antimicrobial therapy of adult patients with infective endocarditis. The choice and the duration of antimicrobial therapy are determined by the infecting micro-organism, the sensitivity of this micro-organism to antimicrobial therapy, the location of the(More)
