Assessments were made of 945 consecutive hospital patients with regard to a relation between borderline low thyroid function (recognised by a slightly raised thyroid stimulating hormone), thyroid… Expand
Polyvalent immunoglobulins for prophylaxis of bacterial infections in patients following multiple trauma
One hundred and fifty severely injured patients requiring long-term artificial ventilation were evaluated in a prospective, randomized, double blind study comparing the prophylactic effect of an… Expand
Immunological abnormalities and HLA antigen frequencies in IgA deficient patients with epilepsy.
- A. Fontana, H. Joller, F. Skvaril, P. Grob
- Journal of neurology, neurosurgery, and…
- 1 July 1978
Twenty-three epileptics with constitutional factors for seizures and low IgA serum concentrations were studied. Imbalance of the IgG subclasses was often observed, the IgG4 being undetectable in 13… Expand
Simple monitoring of antiretroviral therapy with a signal‐amplification‐boosted HIV‐1 p24 antigen assay with heat‐denatured plasma
Objective:Virus load determination has become indispensable for the management of HIV patients, but depends on expensive assays of a low throughput. We evaluated whether a highly improved HIV-1 p24… Expand
Highly active antiretroviral therapy during early HIV infection reverses T‐cell activation and maturation abnormalities
Objectives:To evaluate the impact of early initiation of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) on disease-induced T-cell activation and maturation abnormalities during asymptomatic HIV… Expand

Altered intracellular expression of the chemokines MIP‐1α, MIP‐1β and IL‐8 by peripheral blood CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in mild allergic asthma
Background: The ability of chemokines to regulate Th1 and Th2 responses suggests a role in the pathogenesis of atopic disorders such as allergic asthma where Th2 response dominance has been observed.… Expand
