This report describes the detection of mutations in the pol gene of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 associated with resistance to zidovudine, didanosine, and lamivudine by genotyping by an oligonucleotide ligation assay specific codons in the pol gene amplified by PCR. Our studies demonstrate the sensitivity, simplicity, and specificity of this(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effects of combination antiretroviral therapy including a protease inhibitor (PI combination therapy) in children with advanced HIV-1 disease. STUDY DESIGN An observational study of HIV-1 plasma RNA, lymphocyte subsets, delayed type hypersensitivity and physical growth after initiation of PI combination therapy. RESULTS In(More)
Septicemia due to Staphylococcus aureus often begins as a focal infection (e.g., colonized wounds or catheters) from which the organism gains access to the bloodstream. On the basis of recent data from this laboratory, it is likely that S. aureus colonizes catheters and endothelium by using a fibrinogen-binding protein to mediate adhesion to(More)
To determine if the 32-bp deletion of the chemokine receptor CCR5 (delta32ccr5) protects against mother-to-infant transmission of HIV-1, specimens from all uninfected and infected children who were perinatally exposed to HIV-1 and observed since 1988 and whose mothers did not take zidovudine were assessed for delta32ccr5. The CCR5 genotype was determined(More)
