Rickettsia monacensis and Human Disease, Spain
We identified Rickettsia monacensis as a cause of acute tickborne rickettsiosis in 2 humans. Its pathogenic role was assessed by culture and detection of the organism in patients’ blood samples. ThisExpand
Short communication: Biological and genetic characterization of HIV type 1 subtype B and nonsubtype B transmitted viruses: usefulness for vaccine candidate assessment.
Due to the extraordinary degree of genetic diversity of HIV-1 and the structural complexity of its envelope glycoproteins, designing an effective vaccine is difficult, requiring the development ofExpand
Light and electron microscopic study of the hindgut of the ant (Formica nigricans, Hymenoptera): I. structure of the ileum
The study of the ileum of the ant Formica nigricans by light and electron microscopy revealed the existence of three differentiated regions: proximal, middle, and distal ileum. The middle regionExpand
Light and electron microscopic study of the hindgut of the ant (Formica nigricans, Hymenoptera): II. structure of the rectum
The rectum of the ant Formica nigricans is composed of six ovoid rectal papillae inserted into a rectal pouch. The wall of the rectal pouch is made up of a flat epithelium of simple rectal cellsExpand
HIV-1 Transmission Cluster With T215D Revertant Mutation Among Newly Diagnosed Patients From the Basque Country, Spain
Objective:To determine the introduction of HIV-1 genetic forms and to examine transmission clusters and resistance to antiretroviral inhibitors among newly diagnosed patients from the Basque Country,Expand
Development of a panel of well-characterized human immunodeficiency virus type 1 isolates from newly diagnosed patients including acute and recent infections.
The aim of this study was the development of a panel constituted by well-defined HIV-1 strains of different genetic forms, with a particular focus on isolates from acute and recent infections.Expand
Remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema associated with subcutaneous Streptobacillus moniliformis abscess.
We describe an 84-year-old woman who developed remitting seronegative symmetrical synovitis with pitting edema (RS3PE) associated with a subcutaneous abscess of the hand due to StreptobacillusExpand
Analysis of discrepancies in the interpretation of antiretroviral drug resistance results in HIV-1 infected patients of Basque Country, Spain.
BACKGROUND Genotypic and phenotypic analysis of HIV-1 resistance mutations constitute one important point for providing guidelines in the choice of antiretroviral regimens and to design lines ofExpand
Construction and phenotypic characterization of HIV type 1 functional envelope clones of subtypes G and F.
Subtype G has been estimated to represent the fourth most prevalent clade in the HIV-1 pandemic and subtype F is widely circulating in parts of South America (frequently within BF recombinant forms)Expand
Predominance of CXCR4 tropism in HIV-1 CRF14_BG strains from newly diagnosed infections.
OBJECTIVES R5-tropic viruses are associated with HIV-1 transmission and predominate during the early stages of infection. X4-tropic populations have been detected in ~50% of patients with late-stageExpand
