HLA antigens (A, B, C and DR loci), serum islet cell antibodies, thyrogastric antibodies, and insulin antibodies were studied in 77 families (25 simplex, 42 multiplex, and 10 multigenerational). In order to test for intrafamilial constancy and intergroup variation, we compared simplex with multiplex families, HLA identical and non identical siblings within(More)
To estimate the prevalence of congenital toxoplasmosis, Chagas disease, cytomegalovirus, and rubella, blood samples on dried blood spot (DBS) from neonates (day 3-20 of life) were screened for immunoglobulin (Ig) M against Toxoplasma gondii, cytomegalovirus, rubella virus, and IgG against Trypanosoma cruzi by methods used for serum and adapted for use with(More)
The genetics of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) is currently an area of controversy, with some investigators proposing heterogeneity within the HLA region and even the existence of non-HLA-linked susceptibility genes, and others maintaining that a simple autosomal recessive gene linked to HLA with reduced penetrance is an adequate explanation.

Amiodarone has been reported to cause asymptomatic increases in liver function tests in 15-55% of patients. Clinically apparent, symptomatic hepatic disease occurs less frequently, but patients have been reported to have hepatomegaly, jaundice, cirrhosis, or chronic active hepatitis. Less well recognized is the fact that amiodarone has been attributed to(More)
Infections due to BK papovavirus frequently occur in renal transplant recipients [2] and may be involved in a variety of syndromes, including ureteral obstruction, deterioration of graft function, and pancreatic disease. The source of the BK papovavirus in these cases is not clear. Because the renal allograft has been implicated as a source of primary(More)
