BACKGROUND: Host genetic factors may a play role in susceptibility to infection. Vitamin-D is an immunomodulator that may play a role in HIV infection. Vitamin-D action is mediated by the vitamin-D receptor. We establish prevalence of ApaI, BsmI, FokI and TaqI polymorphisms (VDRPs) amongst a black southern African HIV+ve population and investigate polymorphic differences between HIV+ve and -ve people. METHODS: Seventy-nine sex and age-group matched HIV+ve patients of African origin initiating antiretroviral therapy (ART) and 79 HIV-ve participants, also of African origin, were recruited from a public sector HIV testing and treatment clinic and investigated for the 4 polymorphisms...

BACKGROUND: Cerebrovascular ischemic events associated with giant cell arteritis (GCA) are uncommon and have been reported in 3%-4% of patients. We describe a case report of GCA associated with intracranial stenosis and review various angiographic findings. CASE PRESENTATION: A 66-year-old man presented with worsening headache and vision loss. A recent magnetic resonance angiogram of the head and neck showed multiple intracranial stenosis. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis demonstrated increased protein of 135...

Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX) is a widely prescribed antimicrobial for the management of several uncomplicated infections. It is commonly used for the treatment and prophylaxis of Pneumocystis jirovecii pneumonia (PCP) in the HIV-infected population. The adverse reaction to TMP/SMX is more frequent and severe in HIV-infected patients as compared to the general population. Here, we report a case of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS) secondary to TMP/SMX. The patient had a generalized cutaneous reaction with involvement of the eyes, oral cavity, and genitals...

INTRODUCTION: Vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms in the 5' regulatory region (Cdx2 and A-1012G), coding region (FokI), and 3' untranslated region (UTR; BsmI, ApaI, and TaqI) were studied to find out whether these polymorphisms are associated with susceptibility to or protection against HIV-1 and development of tuberculosis (TB) in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1-infected patients. STUDY SUBJECTS AND METHODS: The study was carried out in 131 HIV patients without TB (HIV+ TB-) and 113 HIV patients with TB (HIV+ TB+; includes 82 patients with pulmonary TB (HIV+ PTB+) and 31 with extra pulmonary TB), 108 HIV-negative pulmonary TB patients (HIV- PTB+), and 146 healthy controls...

Ten human herpes virus 6 (HHV-6) strains from different origins were studied using reactivity to monoclonal antibodies and polymerase chain reaction analysis. Using immunofluorescence and neutralization assays, two monoclonal antibodies gave a positive reaction with the ten strains while three others only reacted with a fraction of these strains. This differential reactivity permitted segregation of the ten strains into two non-overlapping antigenic groups, designated as I and II. DNA was amplified from two regions of HHV-6 genome corresponding to the putative large tegument protein (LTP) gene and major capsid protein (MCP) gene, respectively...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
