Sensitive and robust one-tube real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction to quantify SIV RNA load: comparison of one- versus two-enzyme systems.
Plasma viral RNA load is a key parameter in disease progression of lentiviral infections. To measure simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) RNA loads, we have established a quantitative one-tube assayExpand

Quantitation of simian cytokine and beta-chemokine mRNAs, using real-time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction: variations in expression during chronic primate lentivirus infection.
Cytokines and beta-chemokines are important mediators of the immune system and are expressed in many infectious diseases. To study cytokine and beta-chemokine profiles during pathogenesis ofExpand

Passive immunization against oral AIDS virus transmission: An approach to prevent mother‐to‐infant HIV‐1 transmission?
To develop immunoprophylaxis regimens against mother‐to‐child human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV‐1) transmission, we established a simian–human immunodeficiency virus (SHIV) model in neonatalExpand
