This study determined the prevalence, cellular localization, and content of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated antigens in intestinal mucosa from HIV-infected subjects. Studies were performed in 168 subjects with gastrointestinal, nutritional, or proctologic complaints, and HIV-seronegative controls. The polymerase chain-reaction technique, which(More)
The incidence of lymphomas in individuals infected with the human immunodeficiency virus has increased progressively since the beginning of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic. The present series includes 111 patients, all diagnosed and studied at one hospital in New York City. There were 108 men and three women; the average age was 39(More)
Clinicopathologic correlations were explored in 79 patients at high risk for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection who had lymph node biopsy for persistent lymphadenopathies and were followed for intervals of up to 7.2 years. Three histologic patterns, follicular hyperplasia with cytolysis (A), follicular involution with hypervascularity (C), and a(More)
A Monte Carlo simulation is incorporated into a risk assessment for trichloroethylene (TCE) using physiologically-based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling coupled with the linearized multistage model to derive human carcinogenic risk extrapolations. The Monte Carlo technique incorporates physiological parameter variability to produce a statistically derived(More)
Immune complexes isolated from pleural effusions of lung carcinomas were dissociated by ion exchange chromatography in the presence of 8 M urea. The antibodies thus obtained from 2 lung adenocarcinomas and 2 squamous cell carcinomas were assayed by indirect immunofluorescence against a variety of target cells in fresh suspensions, tissue cultures, and(More)
Endostreptosin (ESS) is an immunologically well defined cytoplasmic antigen of group A and some group C streptococci. ESS is probably the pathogenetic antigen of poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis (ASGN). Antibodies to ESS (ESS-Ab) were determined by microcomplement fixation in 1,102 patients and by ELISA in 105 patients. In 168 patients with ASGN (90(More)
Human lymphotropic retroviruses lymphadenopathy-associated virus/human T lymphoma virus III have been recently implicated in the pathogenesis of the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS). The mechanisms leading to the complex immune deregulations of this disease, however, are still largely unknown. To investigate the possible presence of(More)
The presence of antilymphocyte antibody (ALA) in patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), identified in a previous study, was confirmed by testing a population of 200 patients with AIDS. Of these, 88% had significant levels of ALA vs only 8% of a control group of patients with non-AIDS-related diseases. In a prospective study, the levels(More)
The testes and prostates of 14 patients with acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) for whom autopsies were performed were examined for the presence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the pathologic alterations seen in AIDS. Histologically, the testes contained peritubular fibrosis and variable spermatogenic arrest, which were inconsistent with(More)
