A dideoxynucleoside compound in which the 3'-hydroxy group on the sugar moiety has been replaced by an azido group. This modification prevents the formation of phosphodiester linkages which are needed for the completion of nucleic acid chains. The compound is a potent inhibitor of HIV replication, acting as a chain-terminator of viral DNA during reverse transcription. It improves immunologic function, partially reverses the HIV-induced neurological dysfunction, and improves certain other clinical abnormalities associated with AIDS. Its principal toxic effect is dose-dependent suppression of bone marrow, resulting in anemia and leukopenia.

Cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy in HIV infected patients. (1/190)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the presence and extent of autonomic dysfunction in HIV infected individuals of one ethnic group. DESIGN: Prospective, age-sex matched study. METHODS: 25 patients (seven asymptomatic (HIV), eight AIDS related complex (ARC), 10 AIDS) and 25 controls were recruited from patients and staff at the Aga Khan Hospital, Nairobi. Autonomic function was assessed by measurement of pulse rate variability on standing, rest, deep breathing, Valsalva manoeuvre, isometric exercise, cold face test, and mental stress. Blood pressure was measured during standing, supine resting, and on Valsalva manoeuvre. CD4 count was correlated with number of abnormal test results. RESULTS: 21 patients had at least one abnormal test of autonomic function compared with one control (p < 0.0001). There were significant differences between AIDS patients and controls for supine heart rate (p < 0.001), Valsalva ratio (p = 0.05), and cold face test (p = 0.05), and almost significant results for mental stress (p = 0.051). Evidence of autonomic hypersensitivity was found in response to exercise and/or mental stress in some patients with HIV or ARC. No difference was found in blood pressure measurements. Abnormalities in autonomic function occurred at all CD4 counts and all patients with four abnormal tests of heart rate variation had a CD4 count less than 300 x 10(6)/l. CONCLUSIONS: There is evidence of substantial autonomic dysfunction in AIDS patients compared with controls and mild abnormalities in the majority of HIV infected patients studied irrespective of CD4 count. Autonomic hypersensitivity may precede loss of function in some cases.  (+info)

Localisation of HHV-8 in AIDS related lymphadenopathy. (2/190)

BACKGROUND: Many lymph node abnormalities have been described in AIDS. These include opportunistic infections that sometimes result in spindle cell pseudotumours, Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), malignant lymphoma (Hodgkin's and non-Hodgkin's), and florid reactive hyperplasia. Among these, reactive hyperplasia is the most common manifestation of AIDS related lymphadenopathy. AIM: To examine whether human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8), the aetiological agent of KS, can be localised in AIDS related lymphadenopathy and whether its appearance in such nodes is predictive of Kaposi's sarcoma development. METHODS: A series of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive men (n = 21) with AIDS related lymphadenopathy who at the time of presentation had KS or subsequently developed KS (n = 5) were examined. The prevalence of HHV-8 was assessed in these patients using solution phase polymerase chain reaction (PCR), real time TaqMan quantitative PCR, and in cell amplification techniques (PCR in situ hybridisation (PCR-ISH) and labelled primer driven in cell amplification). RESULTS: Using standard solution phase PCR in a nested format, only two of the 21 patients with AIDS related lymphadenopathy were positive for HHV-8. The lymph node of one of these patients contained KS lesions. Three HHV-8 positive patients were identified using TaqMan PCR (the original two positive patients and one additional patient). All of the positive patients either subsequently developed KS (n = 2) or had KS at the time of diagnosis (n = 1). Two additional patients subsequently developed KS, but were negative for HHV-8 by solution phase PCR and TaqMan PCR. Using PCR-ISH, HHV-8 amplicons were identified in some lymphoid cells (in one patient) and in spindle cells of the KS lesion in another. The positive lymphoid cells were predominantly concentrated in B cell areas of the affected lymph nodes, confirming the B cell tropism exhibited by HHV-8. CONCLUSIONS: The presence of HHV-8 in AIDS related lymphadenopathy is predictive of KS development and probably represents seeding of HHV-8 infected B cells from the peripheral blood. These findings support a role for HHV-8 in the pathobiology of KS.  (+info)

Risk factors for tuberculosis among human immunodeficiency virus-infected persons. A case-control study in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil (1985-1996). (3/190)

The objective of this study was to identify tuberculosis risk factors and possible surrogate markers among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected persons. A retrospective case-control study was carried out at the HIV outpatient clinic of the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais in Belo Horizonte. We reviewed the demographic, social-economical and medical data of 477 HIV-infected individuals evaluated from 1985 to 1996. The variables were submitted to an univariate and stratified analysis. Aids related complex (ARC), past history of pneumonia, past history of hospitalization, CD4 count and no antiretroviral use were identified as possible effect modifiers and confounding variables, and were submitted to logistic regression analysis by the stepwise method. ARC had an odds ratio (OR) of 3.5 (CI 95% - 1.2-10.8) for tuberculosis development. Past history of pneumonia (OR 1.7 - CI 95% 0.6-5.2) and the CD4 count (OR 0.4 - CI 0. 2-1.2) had no statistical significance. These results show that ARC is an important clinical surrogate for tuberculosis in HIV-infected patients. Despite the need of confirmation in future studies, these results suggest that the ideal moment for tuberculosis chemoprophylaxis could be previous to the introduction of antiretroviral treatment or even just after the diagnosis of HIV infection.  (+info)

Central pontine myelinolysis complicating treatment of multicentric Castleman's disease and Kaposi's sarcoma in a patient with AIDS. (4/190)

An HIV positive black African woman presented with widespread lymphadenopathy and pancytopenia that had been ascribed to tuberculosis. Lymph node biopsy showed both Kaposi's sarcoma and multicentric Castleman's disease. Despite antiretroviral therapy and chemotherapy the patient deteriorated, developing confusion and dysphasia. A cranial magnetic resonance scan showed central pontine myelinolysis. Despite supportive therapy the patient died.  (+info)

Epstein-Barr virus and HIV play no direct role in persistent generalized lymphadenopathy syndrome. (5/190)

Persistent generalized lymphadenopathy (PGL) and polyclonal B cell activation are features of infection with HIV. Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and HIV are known to activate B cells in vitro, but whether they are important B cell activators in patients infected with HIV is less clear. In this study, lymph node tissue was obtained from 10 patients with PGL and assessed for evidence of EBV and HIV gene sequences. DNA was extracted and specific viral gene sequences identified using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). EBV sequences were difficult to detect in the PGL tissue, with a signal intensity similar to that of other benign and malignant lymphoid conditions not associated with EBV. HIV sequences were also rare in the PGL tissue, consistent with HIV infection of the small number of peripheral blood cells and nodal T cells likely to be present in such a sample. These findings suggest that the polyclonal B cell activation typical of HIV is not driven by direct EBV or HIV infection of B cells.  (+info)

Mononuclear cells from HIV-infected patients produce factors which enhance functional activity of polymorphonuclear neutrophils from healthy subjects. (6/190)

The influence of mononuclear cell supernatants (MNCS) from nine healthy donors and 35 HIV-infected patients (17 with lymphoadenopathy syndrome (LAS), 15 with ARC and three with AIDS) on functional activity of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) from healthy donors was investigated. MNC after short-term cultivation (24 h) produced factors which enhanced chemiluminescence (CL) and chemotaxis of PMN. This augmentation did not depend on stimulation of MNC by mitogens (lipopolysaccharide Escherichia coli (LPS) and concanavalin A (Con A)) or on activation of PMN by FMLP. After 48 h of cultivation only MNC stimulated by LPS produced these factors. MNCS from HIV-infected patients provoked a more pronounced augmentation of PMN CL compared with MNCS from healthy subjects. This enhancement was observed in patients at all stages of infection, but was more pronounced in patients with LAS. MNCS impact on PMN CL was not connected with proliferative activity of MNC but was correlated with the level of CD4 cells. It was shown that removal of adherent cells from MNC fraction resulted in decreased MNCS impact. Treatment of MNCS by antibody to IL-1 beta, IL-8, interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha) and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) did not decrease MNCS impact on PMN CL.  (+info)

In situ demonstration of Epstein-Barr virus in intravenous drug abusers with generalized lymphadenopathy. (7/190)

We have studied by the in situ hybridization method the presence of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) DNA genome in lymph node tissues from 11 patients with persistent generalized lymphadenopathy. Using a biotinylated EBV DNA probe, we demonstrated EBV nucleic acid in scattered germinal centre cells in eight of the 11 cases. Our results suggest that EBV is not a determinant factor in the pathogenesis of this lymphadenopathy, but support its possible implication in B cell malignant transformation in cases of AIDS-associated lymphoma.  (+info)

A controlled trial comparing continued zidovudine with didanosine in human immunodeficiency virus infection. The NIAID AIDS Clinical Trials Group. (8/190)

BACKGROUND: Although zidovudine is effective in patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, its efficacy may decline with prolonged use. Didanosine is another inhibitor of HIV reverse transcriptase. We evaluated the effectiveness of changing anti-HIV treatment from zidovudine to didanosine. METHODS: This multicenter, double-blind study involved 913 patients who had tolerated zidovudine for at least 16 weeks. The patients had the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), AIDS-related complex with less than or equal to 300 CD4 cells per cubic milliliter, or asymptomatic HIV infection with less than or equal to 200 CD4 cells per cubic milliliter. They were randomly assigned to receive 600 mg per day of zidovudine, 750 mg per day of didanosine, or 500 mg per day of didanosine. RESULTS: There were significantly fewer new AIDS-defining events and deaths among the 298 subjects assigned to 500 mg per day of didanosine than among the subjects who continued to receive zidovudine (relative risk, 1.39; 95 percent confidence interval, 1.06 to 1.82; P = 0.015). With 750 mg of didanosine, there was no clear benefit over zidovudine (relative risk, 1.10; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.86 to 1.42). The efficacy of didanosine was unrelated to the duration of previous zidovudine treatment. In the two didanosine groups, there were improvements in the number of CD4 cells (P less than 0.001 for both groups) and in p24 antigen levels (P = 0.03 in the 500-mg group; P = 0.005 in the 750-mg group), as compared with the zidovudine group. CONCLUSIONS: Changing treatment from zidovudine to 500 mg per day of didanosine appears to slow the progression of HIV disease.  (+info)

One hundred and ninety eight men seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antibody and 58 HIV antibody seroconverters were studied for an average of 19.3 (SEM 0.5) months to assess the relation between HIV antigenaemia and the risk of developing the acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) and AIDS related complex. Forty (20.2%) of the 198 HIV antibody seropositive men were antigen positive at entry and remained so during follow up. Eight (13.8%) of the 58 HIV antibody seroconverters and 20 (12.7%) of the remaining 158 HIV antibody seropositive men became antigen positive during follow up, resulting in an end point attack rate for HIV antigenaemia of 14.3%. AIDS related complex was diagnosed in 25 (15.8%) of the HIV antigen negative men and in 14 (20.7%) of the HIV antigen positive men. AIDS was diagnosed in 15 men, resulting in an end point attack rate for AIDS of 23.9% in the HIV antigen positive group and 1.3% in the antigen negative group. HIV antibody seropositive men without ...

Description of disease Early symptomatic HIV infection. Treatment Early symptomatic HIV infection. Symptoms and causes Early symptomatic HIV infection Prophylaxis Early symptomatic HIV infection
Due to the rapid spread of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) worldwide, it is necessary to ascertain essential immune inflammatory parameters that describe the severity of the disease and provide guidance for treatment. We performed network meta-analyses to determine differences in blood cells, lymphocyte subsets, and cytokines in COVID-19 patients with different clinical stages. Databases were systematically searched to May 2, 2020, and updated on June 1, 2020. Network meta-analyses were conducted via Stata 15.0, and the mean difference (MD) and its 95% CI were used as the effect values of the pooled analysis. Seventy-one studies were included involving 8647 COVID-19 patients, White blood cell (WBC), neutrophil (NEUT), IL-6, and IL-10 counts increased significantly with worsening of the COVID-19, while lymphocyte (LYM) counts decreased. The levels of platelet (PLT), CD3+, CD4+, CD8+, and CD19+ cells in severe and critical patients were significantly lower than those in mild patients. IL-1β count was
Zidovudine, a nucleoside analog, was the first agent proved to be effective in the management of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection. After demonstration of zidovudines in-vitro activity against HIV-1 in 1985, the drug was rapidly evaluated in phase I and phase II clinical trials and was found to be effective in decreasing both mortality and the incidence of opportunistic infections in patients with the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and advanced AIDS-related complex; the drug was also found to have a substantial but tolerable toxicity profile.. Since the licensure of zidovudine in 1987, an intensive clinical research effort has established the drugs efficacy in the prevention of disease progression in asymptomatic and mildly symptomatic HIV-infected persons and has established the success of lower-dose therapy in patients at all stages of disease. The current recommendation is to use zidovudine at a dose of 500 to 600 mg/d in both symptomatic and asymptomatic ...
Test‐it™ HIV nano range of HIV tests are ultra-modern 3rd and 4th generation qualitative immunoassays utilising the latest cutting edge technology to detect Human Immunodeficiency Virus types 1 and 2 (HIV‐1 and HIV‐2).. Human immunodeficiency virus type 1 and 2 (HIV 1+2) are enveloped single strand RNA virus that cause acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). HIV‐1 has been isolated from patients with AIDS and AIDS‐related complex, and from healthy individuals with high risk for developing AIDS. HIV‐2 has been isolated from West African AIDS patients and from seropositive asymptomatic individuals. Both HIV‐1 and HIV‐2 virus elicit strong immune responses, including the production of anti‐virus antibodies. Presence of specific anti HIV‐1 and/or anti HIV‐2 virus antibodies in blood, serum, or plasma indicates exposure of an individual to the HIV‐1 and/or HIV‐2 virus, and is of great value in clinical diagnosis.

Condensins are pentameric complexes that were initially described as being involved in the dynamics of chromosomes during mitosis. It has been recently established that two related complexes (Condensin I and Condensin II) contribute to this process. An increasing sum of studies, using different approaches in various organisms, leads to the paradigm that Condensins are required for the correct segregation of replicated chromosomes by cooperating somehow with Topoisomerase II in sister chromatid resolution. Depending on species and/or experimental studies, these complexes also contribute to some aspects of the assembly and compaction of mitotic chromosomes. Recent studies provided evidences that Condensins and related complexes also function in non-mitotic processes such as replication and transcription. Biochemical studies have highlighted mechanistic aspects of Condensin function and initiated a fine functional dissection of core and regulatory subunits. However, the exact contribution of each subunit

10.114 An article in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) of 27 February 1988 set out results obtained from testing serum from the Cohort.[152] The narrative recorded that there were 18 patients affected and that infection was acquired from a single batch of Factor VIII during a short period starting in March 1984. It was also suggested that: [T]he low prevalence of HIV 1 infection in Scotland in 1983, when blood for the batch was collected, makes it probable that the batch was contaminated by a single donation.[153] 10.115 It was reported that 32 patients had been transfused. Eighteen of those patients had undergone seroconversion.[154] Eight patients had developed symptoms before March 1987 (the unwell group) and the other 10 remained asymptomatic in mid-1987.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Patterns of interferon-γ production by peripheral blood mononuclear cells from patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection. AU - Nokta, M. A.. AU - Pollard, Richard B. PY - 1990. Y1 - 1990. N2 - A number of immune parameters have been described as impaired in AIDS patients. The patterns of interferon-γ (IFN-γ) production by peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) from AIDS-related complex (ARC) and AIDS patients in response to specific and nonspecific mitogens and their relationship to proliferative responses, interaction with exogenous interleukin 2 (IL-2), and absolute CD4 cell counts were studied. The PBMC were exposed to phytohemagglutinin (PHA) or cytomegalovirus (CMV) antigen (Ag) and/or 10 units of IL-2. At selected times, culture supernatants were tested for IFN-γ production by radioimmunoassay and at identical times proliferative responses were determined by [3H]thymidine uptake. IFN-γ production in response to PHA or CMV Ag was inhibited significantly ...
To the editor: The recent recommendations in the March issue (1) are useful guidelines for health care workers and patients who must face the epidemic of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). As with other guidelines, they help persons make more rational and humane medical decisions. Regrettably, some persons will interpret these guidelines as the answer to all questions raised by the epidemic. At least two issues need to be clarified.. 1. Are health workers who have AIDS or the AIDS-related complex at risk if they work in units with patients infected with organisms to which they might be susceptible?. 2. ...

MODEL RELEASED. AIDS baby with an extensive shingles (herpes zoster) rash around his neck and shoulder. His mother had AIDS-related complex (ARC), a disease caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), which is a precursor to AIDS. ARC and AIDS cause weakening of the immune system, making the patient susceptible to opportunistic infections, and making normally harmless infections life threatening. HIV can be passed from an infected mother to her unborn baby through the placenta, despite the fact that there is no direct contact between their blood systems. Photographed in Africa, where lack of access to drugs and information makes AIDS is a major issue. - Stock Image M112/0334

In this Blogcast, health advocate Scott Forsgren interviews Kent Holtorf, MD on peptide therapy for Lyme diseas and related complex, chronic illnesses.
If a therapy delays progression from A to B and from B to C, does it not follow that it delays progression from A to C? The answer is not necessarily yes. For convenience, let us define middle-stage HIV infection as asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic disease with a CD4 count between 0.2 and 0.5 × 109/L. Recent trials have shown that zidovudine delays progression from middle-stage HIV infection to AIDS or AIDS-related complex. Furthermore, other trials have demonstrated that zidovudine prolongs survival in persons with AIDS or AIDS-related complex. Unfortunately, it does not necessarily follow that early institution of zidovudine therapy in patients with middle-stage HIV infection will prolong their overall survival. One reason is that the trials of zidovudine in patients with AIDS or AIDS-related complex involved subjects who had not received zidovudine before. It is conceivable that the early benefit of zidovudine could be counterbalanced by longer-term effects, including viral resistance and ...

Results: From 2009 to 2014 there were 109,566 patients identified with EPA. The mean age of diagnosis was 67 years. The female to male ratio was 1.46:1 with most of the patients being white (68.5%). Regardless of the specific anatomic site, EPA is significantly lower in patients with asymptomatic HIV infection and HIV defining illness (p, 0.001). Using logistic regression, this negative association is independent of age, sex, race, diabetes, smoking status, obesity, and insurance type (Table 1). When subtypes of EPA based on location were considered, EPA of the head is negatively associated with both asymptomatic HIV infections and HIV defining illnesses, while EPA of the body and tail are not associated with HIV (Table 1 ...

Many MeSH terms regarding AIDS or HIV are used in the Medline database. The following is a select list of key MeSH terms.. Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome An acquired defect of cellular immunity associated with infection by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), a CD4-positive T-lymphocyte count under 200 cells/microliter or less than 14% of total lymphocytes, and increased susceptibility to opportunistic infections and malignant neoplasms. Clinical manifestations also include emaciation (wasting) and dementia. These elements reflect criteria for AIDS as defined by the CDC in 1993.. HIV Infections -- a broader topic than AIDS. Includes the spectrum of human immunodeficiency virus infections that range from asymptomatic seropositivity, thru AIDS-related complex (ARC), to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).. Infectious Disease Transmission, Vertical -- a related term that can be combined with either the HIV or AIDS mesh terms. The transmission of infectious disease or pathogens from one ...
Brazilian AIDS and HIV-1-seropositive patients have had free access to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) since November 1996. Although secondary data based on official mortality statistics indicate a sharp decrease in AIDS mortality, few if any studies tried to estimate the prognosis for patients with HIV who have been followed from the beginning of the HAART era. An observational study, with retrospective and prospective components, was done in 233 adult HIV-1-infected subjects who were recruited in the last 10 years at the outpatient sector of the Secondary Immunodeficiencies Clinic of the Department of Dermatology, Hospital das Clinicas da FMUSP, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The definition of AIDS followed the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 1987. One hundred sixty patients were asymptomatic, 46 had AIDS, 24 had AIDS-related complex, and 3 presented with acute infection at study entry. Twenty-nine (18%) of the asymptomatic subjects developed AIDS during follow-up, with
Previously reported structure−activity relationships have shown two features for effective antitumor activity of titanium β-diketone complexes: (a) ligand asymmetry and (b) the presence of planar substitutents on the ligand. Mono- and dinuclear derivatives, studied with diffraction and DFT methods show that (a) is consistent with different Ti−O(β-diketonato) bond lengths, which are longer than Ti−O(oxo) and Ti−O(alkoxy) ones. π−π features observed in dinuclear derivatives correlate with strong reactivity of related complexes with DNA and support DNA intercalation by such planar groups, in agreement with (b). Large variation for Ti−O bond lengths and Ti−O−C bond angles in the ethoxy moiety is associated with the titanium withdrawing effect and oxygen bonding s character; it is confirmed through exploration of the Cambridge crystallographic database. This ethoxy geometrical flexibility also suggests versatile accommodation in protein pockets and/or other biological targets. ...
The ,-stabilized carbanion complexes [PhSO2CHCNNa·THF], 3, [t-BuSO2CHCNNa], 4, [PhSO2CHCNK], 5, [t-BuSO2CHCNK], 6, and [MeSO2CHCNLi·TMEDA], 7, have been synthesized via the metalation of the parent (organo)sulfonylacetonitriles by BuLi, BuNa, or BnK in THF solution (or THF/TMEDA in the case of 7). In addition, complexes 3 and 7 have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray analyses and have been found to adopt related structures in the solid state. Complex 7 is a molecular dimer containing a central 12-membered (OSCCNLi)2 ring core, with each metal rendered tetracoordinate by binding to a chelating TMEDA molecule. As found in related complexes, no direct carbanion to lithium contacts are present in the structure of 7. Complex 3 forms a polymeric cage structure composed of associated dimeric (OSCCNNa)2 rings, similar to those found in 7. The larger sodium cations, and the presence of only one THF molecule/metal, allow additional contacts with the anions, leading to hexacoordination at the ...

Purpose : The sight threatening sulfur mustard (SM) induced ocular injury presents specific symptoms for each clinical stage. The acute injury develops in all of the exposed eyes and is characterized by erosions and severe inflammation. The irreversible chronic pathology develops only in part of the eyes, and is clinically expressed by chronic inflammation and neovascularization (NV). The mechanisms underlying this injury are still in research and treatment is insufficient. Aiming to shed light on pathological mechanisms and improve the therapeutic strategies, we studied the expression pattern of various cytokines and chemokines at different clinical stages of the ocular injury. Methods : Rabbit eyes were exposed to SM vapor and a clinical follow-up was carried out up to 4 weeks. Corneal and limbal tissues were collected at 48h, 1w and 4w post exposure and IL-1α, IL-1β, IL-6, TNFα, macrophage chemotactic protein (MCP)-1 and IL-8 levels were measured by commercial ELISA kits. Results : Typical ...
