The effects of HIV on brain metabolites and cognitive function are not well understood. Sixteen HIV+youths (15 vertical, 1 transfusion transmissions) receiving combination antiretroviral therapy and 14 age-matched HIV- youths (13–25 years of age) were evaluated with brain two-dimensional (2D) magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) at 3 Tesla (T) and a(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) O157:H7 has been recognized as a major food borne pathogen responsible for frequent hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremic syndrome in humans. Cattle are important reservoirs of E. coli O157:H7, in which the organism colonizes the intestinal tract and is shed in the feces. OBJECTIVE(More)
AIM To study immunogenicity of Pseudomonas N terminal flagellin as an adjuvant for Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii) biofilm associated protein (Bap). METHODS The N terminal flagellin gene was amplified. The pET28a (+) and polymerase chain reaction products were digested with HindIII and EcoR I. The ligation of N terminal flagellin into pET28a (‏+)(More)
BACKGROUND Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) strains are the major causes of diarrheal disease in humans and animals. Colonization factors and enterotoxins are the major virulence factors in ETEC pathogenesis. For the broad-spectrum protection against ETEC, one could focus on colonization factors and non-toxic heat labile as a vaccine candidate. (More)
