Better understanding of the pathogenesis of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) would be greatly facilitated by a relevant animal model that uses molecularly cloned virus of defined sequence to induce the disease. Such a system would also be of great value for AIDS vaccine research. An infectious molecular clone of simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV)(More)
We have identified a novel lentivirus prevalent in talapoin monkeys (Myopithecus talapoin), extending previous observations of human immunodeficiency virus-1 cross-reactive antibodies in the serum of these monkeys. We obtained a virus isolate from one of three seropositive monkeys initially available to us. The virus was tentatively named simian(More)
Bronchial reactivity was studied twice in eight monozygotic twin pairs discordant for allergic rhinitis with pollen hypersensitivity, during the winter season (all eight pairs) and during the pollen season (seven pairs). On both occasions, the allergic twins showed significantly higher reactivity than their nonallergic siblings. The results indicate that(More)
The objective of the present study was to compare the ability of experimental and commercial xylanases to degrade, in vitro, the arabinoxylan (AX) fraction in digesta from 28-d-old piglets fed a wheat (Triticum aestivum)-based diet (49% wheat). Pigs were euthanized at 1, 2, 3, or 4 h after feeding; stomach and ileum contents were isolated and frozen and(More)
A case of fatal bilateral lower extremity myonecrosis in a nonimmunocompromized man with septicaemia caused by Aeromonas hydrophila is described. Immediate surgical revision combined with treatment with new cephalosporins should be considered in the treatment of severe soft tissue infections, especially when the patient is known to have a trauma with(More)
