In order to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in the gene-for-gene type of pathogen resistance, high-resolution genetic and physical mapping of resistance loci is required to facilitate map-based cloning of resistance genes. Here, we report the molecular mapping and cloning of a dominant gene (Pi-k ( h )) present in the rice line Tetep, which is(More)
BACKGROUND Combination antiretroviral therapy with protease inhibitors has transformed HIV infection from a terminal condition into one that is manageable. However, the complexity of regimens makes adherence to therapy difficult. OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of different levels of adherence to therapy on virologic, immunologic, and clinical outcome; to(More)
Cryptococcosis is a global invasive mycosis associated with significant morbidity and mortality. These guidelines for its management have been built on the previous Infectious Diseases Society of America guidelines from 2000 and include new sections. There is a discussion of the management of cryptococcal meningoencephalitis in 3 risk groups: (1) human(More)
Tuberculosis is a serious opportunistic infection in transplant recipients. On the basis of the compilation of published reports in the literature, the incidence of Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in organ transplant recipients worldwide ranged from 0.35% to 15%. Nonrenal transplantation (P = .004), rejection within 6 months before the onset of(More)
Mutation scanning and direct DNA sequencing of all 50 exons of ABCR were completed for 150 families segregating recessive Stargardt disease (STGD1). ABCR variations were identified in 173 (57%) disease chromosomes, the majority of which represent missense amino acid substitutions. These ABCR variants were not found in 220 unaffected control individuals (440(More)
Host immunity is essential in facilitating the eradication of infection. However, immunological recovery and an imbalance characterised by either suboptimum or excessive expression of immune responses can also be harmful to the host. Inflammatory responses triggered by rapid resolution of immunosuppression can lead to a series of localised and systemic(More)
We aimed to determine whether the quality of life (QOL) in the patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection was influenced by satisfaction with social support, coping style and hopelessness. One hundred and thirty-eight HIV-infected patients were prospectively studied in this multicentre, longitudinal study. The QOL was assessed by(More)
Rice is a staple cereal of India cultivated in about 43.5Mha area but with relatively low average productivity. Abiotic factors like drought, flood and salinity affect rice production adversely in more than 50% of this area. Breeding rice varieties with inbuilt tolerance to these stresses offers an economically viable and sustainable option to improve rice(More)
Stargardt disease (STGD, also known as fundus flavimaculatus; FFM) is an autosomal recessive retinal disorder characterized by a juvenile-onset macular dystrophy, alterations of the peripheral retina, and subretinal deposition of lipofuscin-like material. A gene encoding an ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter was mapped to the 2-cM (centiMorgan) interval(More)

Apart from clinical stage and lymph node status, acknowledged to be among the most powerful predictors of outcome in cervical cancer, the determination of prognosis and thereby the need for adjuvant therapy in surgically treated patients currently relies on a variety of histopathologic factors. The role of many of these is controversial. This may be because(More)
