Macrophage HIV-1 infection in duodenal tissue of patients on long term HAART.
Mucosal surfaces play a major role in human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) transmission and pathogenesis. Since the role of intestinal macrophages as viral reservoirs during chronic HIV-1Expand

Reservoirs of HIV replication after successful combined antiretroviral treatment.
Sustained reduction of viral replication can be achieved in HIV infected patients after treatment with combinations of drugs (HAART) that inhibit the viral reverse transcriptase, and proteaseExpand

The intestinal mucosa as a reservoir of HIV-1 infection after successful HAART
The presence of HIV-1 RNA in distal duodenal mucosa was evaluated in 44 HIV-1-positive patients. HIV-1 RNA was detected in gut tissue in antiretroviral-naive patients with high plasma viral loads, asExpand

Prescribing rates for psychotropic medication amongst east London general practices: low rates where Asian populations are greatest.
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to examine the contribution of Asian ethnicity to the variation in rates of practice prescribing for antidepressant and anxiolytic medication, taking into accountExpand

HTLV‐Is in Argentina are phylogenetically similar to those of other South American countries, but different from HTLV‐Is in Africa
To understand the origin and past dissemination of human T‐cell leukemia/lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV‐I) in Latin America, we conducted a phylogenetic study of five new HTLV‐I isolates fromExpand

A different gut microbiome linked to inflammation found in cirrhotic patients with and without hepatocellular carcinoma.
INTRODUCTION AND AIM A pro-oncogenic intestinal microbiome was observed in murine models; however, no specific microbiome in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been reported. We aimedExpand

Loss of circulating CD27+ memory B cells and CCR4+ T cells occurring in association with elevated EBV loads in XLP patients surviving primary EBV infection.
Detailed longitudinal studies of patients with X-linked lymphoproliferative disease (XLP) may increase our understanding of the immunologic defects that contribute to the development of lymphoma andExpand

Investigation of residual hepatitis C virus in presumed recovered subjects
Recent studies have found hepatitis C virus (HCV) RNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) of the majority of presumed recovered subjects. We investigated this unexpected finding usingExpand

New evidence of replication of hepatitis C virus in short-term peripheral blood mononuclear cell cultures.
BACKGROUND Even though hepatocytes are the main site for hepatitis C virus (HCV) replication, peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) have also been proposed as a suitable site for HCV replication.Expand
