The testing for human immune deficiency virus type 2 (HIV-2) antibodies of 794 sera collected in July-August 1985 in the four regions of Korhogo, Bondoukou, Man, and Bouaké in Ivory Coast and the collection and testing for HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies of 1,126 sera collected in July-August 1987 in the same regions and age groups showed a remarkable stability(More)
A study of antibodies to HIV1 and HIV2 has been performed among selected groups in Ivory Coast from January to December 1987. In total, 2,578 serum samples were examined. A seropositivity to HIV1 and/or HIV2 was observed in 32 (2.4%) of 1.334 healthy subjects of the general population from 5 different areas, 9 (3.6%) of 246 pregnant women, 58 (12.3%) of 471(More)
The authors in this study intended to demonstrate that S-beta thalassemia can lead to severe ocular hemorrhagic risks, as is true of the sickle cell form. Both forms are also comparable in terms of the risk of aseptic necrosis of the femoral head. Out of the 18 patients studied, 13 (72.2%) had sickle cell retinopathy. Three of 13 patients had already(More)
1,143 serums samples collected from pregnant females at first term were tested for the presence of rubella haemagglutination inhibition antibodies. Rubella antibodies were present in 679 (59.4%) of the pregnant females and 464 (40.6%) were seronegative. No statistically significant difference was found in the prevalence of rubella specific antibodies in(More)
T-lymphocyte subsets were studied in two patient groups: (1) 50 patients with homozygous sickle cell anaemia (SCA) (mean age 12 (range 3-32) years old) in good health at the time of the study who showed no infectious complication. (2) 50 patients (mean age 13 (range 4-29) years old) with normal haemoglobin rate. The global response revealed a significant(More)
A total of 103 volunteers, from 18 to 55 years of age have received subcutaneous injection of the hevac B Pasteur 5 micrograms vaccine: one injection a month during three months and one booster injection after one year. The study of the anti-HBs reaction of the subjects, with regard to the serologicale status to the hepatitis B virus before inoculation, has(More)
Sera from 500 blood donors, 67 multiply-transfused children with sickle-cell anaemia and 320 healthy children who had not been transfused were tested for HIV1 and HIV2 antibodies. Amongst blood donors, 49 (9.8%) exhibited antibodies to retroviruses: 12 (2.4%) to HIV1, 17 (3.4%) to HIV2 and 20 (4%) to both HIV1 and HIV2. Fifteen (22.4%) of the 67(More)
African Burkitt lymphomas (BL) are highly aggressive lymphomas mainly affecting children and young adults in Africa. This lymphoma was marked by its high sensitivity to chemotherapy in comparison to Sporadic Burkitt lymphoma. In this study, we evaluated the treatment response and survival of patients with CMA protocol. Eighty-five of the 105 children(More)
The authors report 525 cases of alpha-thalassemia tracked from samples of cord blood proceeded from 12,709 new-borns. With a frequency of 4.13% alpha-thalassemia was frequently in studied population. The lack of symptomatical shapes (Hemoglobin H disease and hydrops foetalis) agree the present theory about the genetic of Black African alpha-thalassemia.
The authors report 44 cases of hemoglobin O Arab share out in 3 phenotypes (A O Arab, C O Arab and S O Arab). The study of this abnormal hemoglobin has allowed the following conclusions: The Hb O Arab is a rare mutant of hemoglobin. The heterozygote form A O Arab and the association Hb C--Hb O Arab do not present any clinical and hematological(More)
