Occupational exposure to human immunodeficiency virus in pediatricians: A previously undescribed high risk group
The risk of occupational HIV exposure in doctors caring for children with HIV infection is unknown. We conducted a retrospective survey among doctors at the Tygerberg Children's Hospital during September 2001, documenting ...
Incidence of tardive dyskinesia in first-episode psychosis patients treated with low-dose haloperidol
Background: Previous studies suggest that the risk of tardive dyskinesia is increased with higher doses of conventional antipsychotics. This study evaluates the 12-month incidence of tardive dyskinesia in subjects with ...
Kaposi sarcoma with upper airway obstruction and bilateral chylothoraces
A3-year-old boy infected with HIV presented with progressive dyspnea and upper airway obstruction necessitating airway stenting. Chest radiography revealed bilateral alveolar opacification and chylothoraces. Postmortem ...
Studies on the influence of DNA repair on radiosensitivity in prostate cell lines
The relationship between radiosensitivity and DNA repair was investigated in six human prostate cell lines, 1542-NPTX, BPH-1, 1542-CP3TX, 1532-CP2TX, 1535-CP1TX and LNCaP. Except for LNCaP, these cell lines are new and ...

Diagnostic aspects of cervical lymphadenopathy in children in the developing world: A study of 1,877 surgical specimens
Chronic cervical lymphadenopathy is a common clinical problem frequently requiring surgical biopsy. To evaluate the characteristics of surgically excised cervical lymph nodes (LN) in children in a developing country, we ...
Rhinovirus induction of the CXC chemokine epithelial-neutrophil activating peptide-78 in bronchial epithelium
Epithelial-neutrophil activating peptide-78 (ENA-78) induces neutrophil migration, an early response to viral infection. Rhinovirus serotype 16 (RV16) was used to infect primary bronchial epithelial cells and a cell line ...
Are Polymorphic Markers within the α-1-Antitrypsin Gene Associated with Risk of Human Immunodeficiency Virus Disease?
We sought to determine whether variants of the human α-1-antitrypsin (AAT) gene, also known as "PI," or "SERPINA1," are associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in 2 African-based populations from ...
Reboxetine and citalopram in panic disorder: A single-blind, cross-over, flexible-dose pilot study
Both noradrenergic and serotonergic systems have been implicated in the pathophysiology of panic disorder. The advent of selective serotonin (5-HT) reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) (e.g. citalopram) and, more recently, selective ...
The factor structure for the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) in recent-onset psychosis
The Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) is a widely used instrument for measuring severe psychopathology in adult patients with schizophrenia. Data, primarily on chronic patients, have been used to define factors ...
