Body Habitus Changes and Metabolic Alterations in Protease Inhibitor‐Naive HIV‐1‐Infected Patients Treated With Two Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors
&NA; Background: Cross‐sectional and retrospective surveys suggest that nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTIs) contribute to the metabolic and morphologic alterations observed inExpand

Hypoxia inducible factor (HIF-1a and HIF-2a) expression in early esophageal cancer and response to photodynamic therapy and radiotherapy.
Hypoxia inducible factor 1a and 2a (HIF-1a and HIF-2a) are key proteins regulating cellular response to hypoxia. Because the efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) is dependent on the presence ofExpand

Low Frequency of Severe Hepatotoxicity and Association With HCV Coinfection in HIV‐Positive Patients Treated With HAART
Background: Highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) is strongly effective in reducing morbidity and mortality in HIV‐1‐positive individuals. Its main drawback is the potential toxicity. Data onExpand

A randomized, double-blind trial on the use of a triple combination including nevirapine, a nonnucleoside reverse transcriptase HIV inhibitor, in antiretroviral-naive patients with advanced disease.
The immunologic and virologic activity of nevirapine in combination with two nucleosides (zidovudine [ZDV] and didanosine [ddI]) was evaluated in antiretroviral-naive patients with a CD4 countExpand

Multivariate discriminant function based on six biochemical markers in blood can predict the cirrhotic evolution of chronic hepatitis.
BACKGROUND Serologic markers have been proposed for monitoring hepatic fibrosis in chronic active liver disease. Because none of these markers, when used singly, is totally satisfactory, we developedExpand

Prospective observational study of fever in hospitalized returning travelers and migrants from tropical areas, 1997-2001.
BACKGROUND An estimated 50 million people each year from industrialized countries visit tropical areas: 3% to 11% of these travelers report a febrile illness on their return. We conducted a 5-yearExpand
