Several of the clinical and biochemical manifestations of biotin deficiency also occur in severe protein-energy malnutrition (PEM). Average plasma biotin concentrations were lower in 16 malnourished children (10 with marasmus, 3 with kwashiorkor and 3 with marasmic kwashiorkor) than in 31 controls. Lymphocyte mitochondrial carboxylase activities were(More)
OBJECTIVES This cross-sectional study examined the distribution and correlates of salivary secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor (SLPI) concentrations within a multinational cohort of men. METHODS Extracellular SLPI was measured in oral gargle cell supernatants of 378 men from three countries using an ELISA-based assay. Risk factor data were collected by(More)
A comparative study between tube agglutination using Spicer-Edwards antisera and a coagglutination method using Staphylococcus aureus Cowan 1 (NCTC 8530) protein A to detect Salmonella flagellar antigens was carried out. A total of 39 Salmonella strains belonging to eight serogroups of the Kauffmann-White scheme were typed by both methods. Each serogroup(More)
Mono-, di-, and trinucleoside conjugates of glutamate or peptide scaffolds containing nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors were synthesized. Among dinucleoside glutamate ester derivatives, N-myristoylated derivatives showed significantly higher anti-HIV activity than the corresponding N-acetylated conjugates against cell-free virus.(More)
