In 1984 a large prospective study of gay and bisexual men was begun to elucidate the natural history of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. At two successive semiannual examinations, clinical or hematologic abnormalities were found up to 13 times more often among HIV-seropositive men (n = 1611) than HIV-seronegative men (n = 2646). More than(More)
The relationship between the presence of antibody to hepatitis B core antigen (anti-HBc) in donor blood and the development of hepatitis in recipients of that blood was studied in 6293 blood donors and 481 recipients who were followed for 6 to 9 months after transfusion. Of 193 recipients of at least 1 unit of blood positive for anti-HBc, 23 (11.9%)(More)
Parenchymatous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a serious, infrequent complication of thrombolytic therapy for acute myocardial infarction. We studied the clinical and radiologic features, manner of presentation, associated factors, and temporal course in 23 patients with ICH associated with 150 mg or 100 mg recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator(More)
The TIMI phase II pilot study enrolled 288 patients with acute myocardial infarction who were treated with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) within 4 hours of symptom onset and who were assigned to coronary angioplasty of the infarct-related vessel 18 to 48 hours after rt-PA treatment. The patients were followed to ascertain (1) vital status;(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to provide insight into the mechanism of acute myocardial infarction by determining the modifiers of timing and possible triggers of onset of infarction. BACKGROUND A higher frequency of onset of acute myocardial infarction has been reported in the morning with a peak in the 1st 3 h after awakening. This observation(More)
Mechanisms of death among patients who died within 18 h of enrollment in the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction Phase II (TIMI II) study were analyzed. Of 3,339 patients enrolled, 32 died within the 1st 4 h and 31 died within the subsequent 14 h. Thirteen of the 63 patients had shock at enrollment; 22 had advanced hemodynamic compromise without shock and(More)
To ascertain whether the outcome of patients with suspected myocardial infarction differs when chest pain is still present at initiation of thrombolytic therapy, participants in the Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction Phase II study, all of whom presented within 4 hours of symptoms onset, were retrospectively divided into 2 groups: (1) those with chest(More)
We examined the associations between seropositivity for hepatitis B virus (HBV) with the presence or development of antibodies to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1) and with HIV-1 induced T-helper lymphocyte deficiency or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Serologic data on HBV and HIV-1, cytometric enumeration of CD4+ lymphocytes, clinical events(More)
A randomized, double-blind clinical trial of plasma-derived and DNA recombinant hepatitis B virus vaccines was conducted in 186 homosexual men. Nine months after the immunization series (three doses) began, the seroconversion rate in the plasma vaccine group was 88% (68/77); this was significantly higher than the 74% (60/81) response rate of the recombinant(More)
