The comorbidity of psychiatric diagnoses was examined with the Diagnostic Interview Schedule in 62 women who participated in a 10-year follow-up study of anorexia nervosa. Sixty-two age- and sex-matched controls, their parents, and parents of the anorectic probands were also interviewed with the Diagnostic Interview Schedule. There was a statistically(More)
There are substantial data demonstrating that human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are the sexually transmitted etiologic agents of cervical cancer (1). HPV type 16 (HPV16) is the most common HPV type detected in tumors, accounting for 50% of cancers and their precursors, called high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (HSILs) (2). Preliminary studies (3–16)(More)
T lymphocytes recognize discrete regions on an antigen. The specificity of the T cell responses in three mouse strains of differing major histocompatibility complex (MHC) haplotype to a protein antigen, lysozyme, was analyzed using a series of peptides that walk the antigen in single amino acid steps. These peptide series were synthesized using the pin(More)
Detection of human immunodeficiency virus-type 1 (HIV-1) on only one or a few occasions in infants born to infected mothers has been interpreted to indicate that infection may be transient rather than persistent. Forty-two cases of suspected transient HIV-1 viremia among 1562 perinatally exposed seroreverting infants and one mother were reanalyzed. HIV-1(More)
How peptide-major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II complexes are naturally generated is still unknown, but accumulating evidence suggests that unfolding proteins or long peptides can become bound to class II molecules at the dominant determinant before proteolytic cleavage. We have compared the immunogenicity of hen egg-white lysozyme (HEL) in(More)
BACKGROUND The rate of progression to cirrhosis varies among individuals chronically infected with the hepatitis C virus (HCV). Coagulation pathway activation in models of hepatic fibrosis suggests variation in coagulation pathway components may influence the rate of fibrosis. We hypothesised that polymorphisms of the coagulation factors II and V affect the(More)
