Delirious mania is often difficult to distinguish from excited catatonia. While some authors consider delirious mania a subtype of catatonia, the distinction between the two entities is important as treatment differs and effects outcome. It appears that as catatonia is described as having non-malignant and malignant states, the same division of severity may(More)
 The human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I gene, HLA-B27, is a strong risk factor for susceptibility to a group of disorders termed spondyloarthropathies. Rodents that express HLA-B27 develop spondyloarthropathies, implicating HLA-B27 in the etiology of these disorders. To determine whether an HLA-B27-like molecule was associated with(More)
BACKGROUND An anti-CD3 antibody that reduces cytokine release syndrome (CRS) while maintaining immunosuppression would be a major advance in the treatment of acute allograft rejection. A humanized (Hu) anti-CD3 IgG2 Ab, HuM291 gamma2 M3 (HuM291; Protein Design Labs, Inc., Mountain View, CA), was engineered with mutations in the upper CH2 region of the Fc(More)

A major challenge in combating the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic is the development of vaccines capable of inducing potent, persistent cellular immunity and broadly reactive neutralizing antibody responses to HIV type 1 (HIV-1). We report here the results of a preclinical trial using the chimpanzee model to investigate a combination vaccine(More)
C-reactive protein (CRP) is used widely as an indicator of infections and recovery from infections in human medicine. It is an acute-phase serum protein, and its concentration increases in response to infection, trauma, and inflammation. In efficacy and safety studies involving chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) as an animal model to evaluate therapeutic drugs(More)
T-strain mycoplasmas were isolated from the genital tracts of 3 genera of female monkeys: the talapoins, Miopithecas talapoin, the patas, Erythrocebus patas, and the macaques, Macaca fascicularis. The talapoins have not reproduced successfully for the past 2 yr. Fertility in the patas has also been reduced, with a high incidence of stillbirths and(More)
Fenbendazole given at the rate of 2.5 g/kg of feed for 3 days had 100% efficacy against 4th-stage Ascaris suum larvae in 8 pigs. Eight control pigs had a total of 108 A suum. In 6 pigs infected 3 times with 3rd-stage A suum larvae and treated with fenbendazole after the larvae molted to the 4th stage, the challenge exposure-derived population was decreased(More)
