Inhibition by amiloride of sodium-dependent fluid reabsorption in the rat isolated caudal epididymis. (1/2095)

The rate of fluid reabsorption was studied in the rat isolated caudal epididymal sac in vitro. 2 Part of the fluid reabsorption was found to be dependent on intraluminal Na+. Amiloride (0.1 mM) completely inhibited this component of fluid reabsorption. 3 The log dose-inhibition curve to amiloride was sigmoid and the IC50 value was found to be 1.6 muM.  (+info)

Glutathione-independent prostaglandin D2 synthase in ram and stallion epididymal fluids: origin and regulation. (2/2095)

Microsequencing after two-dimensional electrophoresis revealed a major protein, glutathione-independent prostaglandin D2 synthase (PGDS) in the anterior epididymal region fluid of the ram and stallion. In this epididymal region, PGDS was a polymorphic compound with a molecular mass around 30 kDa and a range of pI from 4 to 7. PGDS represented 15% and 8% of the total luminal proteins present in this region in the ram and stallion, respectively. The secretion of the protein as judged by in vitro biosynthesis, and the presence of its mRNA as studied by Northern blot analysis, were limited to the proximal caput epididymidis. Using a specific polyclonal antibody raised against a synthetic peptide, PGDS was found throughout the epididymis, decreasing in concentration toward the cauda region. PGDS was also detected in the testicular fluid and seminal plasma by Western blotting. Castration and efferent duct ligation in the ram led to a decrease in PGDS mRNA and secretion. PGDS mRNA was not detected in the stallion 1 mo after castration, and it was restored by testosterone supplementation. This study showed that PGDS is present in the environment of spermatozoa throughout the male genital tract. Its function in the maturation and/or protection of spermatozoa is unknown.  (+info)

Cortisol in fetal fluids and the fetal adrenal at parturition in the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii). (3/2095)

Glucocorticoid hormones may play a critical role in initiating parturition in tammar wallabies. In this study, we investigated the concentration of cortisol in fetal fluids and cortisol production by fetal adrenals over the last 3 days of the 26-day pregnancy and within 24 h postpartum. The fetal adrenals almost doubled in size between Days 24 and 26 of pregnancy, and their cortisol content increased over 10-fold during this period, from 10 pg to over 100 pg per adrenal pair. After birth, neonatal adrenals continued to grow, but cortisol content fell dramatically to 20 pg. The prepartum increase in adrenal cortisol was reflected by a substantial rise in cortisol concentrations in yolk sac fluid, allantoic fluid, and fetal blood, which were below 10 ng/ml on Day 24 and rose to over 40 ng/ml by Day 26. Cortisol concentrations in neonatal blood decreased postpartum, mirroring decreased cortisol content in neonatal adrenals. Cortisol production by the fetal adrenal was stimulated in vitro by ACTH and prostaglandin E2, suggesting that the in vivo increase may be stimulated by release of ACTH from the fetal hypothalamic-pituitary axis and prostaglandin E2 from the placenta. These results indicate that increasing cortisol production by the fetal adrenal is a characteristic of late pregnancy in the tammar wallaby and support the suggestion that fetal cortisol may trigger the initiation of parturition in this marsupial species.  (+info)

Detection of viruses and body fluids which may contain viruses in the domestic environment. (4/2095)

The domestic environment was investigated for the presence of viruses and body fluids that may contain viruses. A range of surfaces in 39 homes (17 visited on 2 occasions) were sampled by swabbing and analysed using cell culture, reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction for enteroviral RNA, haemoglobin as a marker for blood, amylase as an indicator of urine, saliva and sweat, and protein as an indicator of general hygiene. Haemoglobin was found on 1.9% of surfaces sampled and of the positive samples 30% were from articles frequently handled. Amylase (> 5 U/l) was found in 29.3% of samples tested. Protein was found in 97.8% of samples tested. Enteroviral RNA, indicating the presence of virus, was detected in 3 out of 448 samples tested; they were from a tap handle, telephone handpiece and a toilet bowl. No viruses were isolated in cell culture, however significant problems were encountered with bacterial and fungal contamination. This work demonstrates that only testing environmental samples for bacteria and ATP may not give a total view of the microbiological problem in the home. A range of test methods is useful to gain a broad view of the problems of hygiene in the home and to allow comparative studies of specific areas such as the kitchen and bathroom.  (+info)

Long-term effects of growth hormone (GH) on body fluid distribution in GH deficient adults: a four months double blind placebo controlled trial. (5/2095)

OBJECTIVE: Short-term growth hormone (GH) treatment normalises body fluid distribution in adult GH deficient patients, but the impact of long-term treatment on body fluid homeostasis has hitherto not been thoroughly examined in placebo controlled trials. To investigate if the water retaining effect of GH persists for a longer time we examined the impact of 4 months GH treatment on extracellular volume (ECV) and plasma volume (PV) in GH deficient adults. DESIGN: Twenty-four (18 male, 6 female) adult GH deficient patients aged 25-64 years were included and received either GH (n=11) or placebo (n=13) in a double blind parallel design. METHODS: Before and at the end of each 4 month period ECV and PV were assessed directly using 82Br- and 125I-albumin respectively, and blood samples were obtained. RESULTS: During GH treatment ECV increased significantly (before: 20.48+/-0.99 l, 4 months: 23.77+/-1.38 l (P<0.01)), but remained unchanged during placebo administration (before: 16.92+/-1.01 l, 4 months: 17.60+/-1.24 l (P=0.37)). The difference between the groups was significant (P<0.05). GH treatment also increased PV (before: 3.39+/-0.27 l. 4 months: 3.71+/-0.261 (P=0.01)), although an insignificant increase in the placebo treated patients (before: 2.81+/-0.18 l, 4 months: 2.89+/-0.20 l (P=0.37)) resulted in an insignificant treatment effect (P=0.07). Serum insulin-like growth factor-I increased significantly during GH treatment and was not affected by placebo treatment. Plasma renin (mIU/l) increased during GH administration (before: 14.73+/-2.16, 4 months: 26.00+/-6.22 (P=0.03)) and remained unchanged following placebo (before: 20.77+/-5.13, 4 months: 20.69+/-6.67 (P=0.99)) leaving no significant treatment effect (P=0.08). CONCLUSION: The long-term impact of GH treatment on body fluid distribution in adult GH deficient patients involves expansion of ECV and probably also PV. These data substantiate the role of GH as a regulator of fluid homeostasis in adult GH deficiency.  (+info)

Advanced analysis of biotin metabolites in body fluids allows a more accurate measurement of biotin bioavailability and metabolism in humans. (6/2095)

In previous studies, the bioavailability of biotin in humans was estimated from the recovery of biotin in urine; urinary biotin was measured by microbial growth assays or assays of avidin-binding activity. These assays underestimate concentrations of biotin metabolites, which originate from beta-oxidation, sulfur oxidation or a combination. We have developed an HPLC/avidin-binding assay that is specific for biotin and its metabolites. With the use of the HPLC/avidin-binding assay, TLC and derivatization with p-dimethylaminocinnamaldehyde, we have identified and quantitated biotin and metabolites in urine from six healthy adults. Of that total, biotin accounted for 32+/-12%, bisnorbiotin for 52+/-15%, bisnorbiotin methyl ketone for 7.9+/-5.8%, biotin-d,l-sulfoxide for 4.0+/-3.2% and biotin sulfone for 3.6+/-1.9%. After intravenous administration of 18.4 micromol of biotin, the urinary excretion of biotin metabolites increased 21-130 times above baseline values. Because the biliary excretion of biotin is quantitatively minor (1.9+/-0.2% of an intravenous [14C]biotin dose in rats), intravenously administered biotin is not exposed to intestinal microorganisms. Thus we conclude that biotin metabolites in human urine originate from biotin catabolism in human tissues rather than biotin catabolism by intestinal microorganisms. With the use of the HPLC/avidin-binding assay, we estimated the bioavailability of biotin in adults from the urinary excretion of biotin and metabolites after ingestion of 2.1, 8.2 and 81.9 micromol of biotin. These data provide evidence that biotin is nearly completely absorbed.  (+info)

Physiological variability of fluid-regulation hormones in young women. (7/2095)

We tested the physiological reliability of plasma renin activity (PRA) and plasma concentrations of arginine vasopressin (P[AVP]), aldosterone (P[ALD]), and atrial natriuretic peptide (P[ANP]) in the early follicular phase and midluteal phases over the course of two menstrual cycles (n = 9 women, ages 25 +/- 1 yr). The reliability (Cronbach's alpha >/=0.80) of these hormones within a given phase of the cycle was tested 1) at rest, 2) after 2.5 h of dehydrating exercise, and 3) during a rehydration period. The mean hormone concentrations were similar within both the early follicular and midluteal phase tests; and the mean concentrations of P[ALD] and PRA for the three test conditions were significantly greater during the midluteal compared with the early follicular phase. Although Cronbach's alpha for resting and recovery P[ANP] were high (0.80 and 0.87, respectively), the resting and rehydration values for P[AVP], P[ALD], and PRA were variable between trials for the follicular (alpha from 0.49 to 0.55) and the luteal phase (alpha from 0.25 to 0. 66). Physiological reliability was better after dehydration for P[AVP] and PRA but remained low for P[ALD]. Although resting and recovery P[AVP], P[ALD], and PRA were not consistent within a given menstrual phase, the differences in the concentrations of these hormones between the different menstrual phases far exceeded the variability within the phases, indicating that the low within-phase reliability does not prevent the detection of menstrual phase-related differences in these hormonal variables.  (+info)

Transport of fluid by lens epithelium. (8/2095)

We report for the first time that cultured lens epithelial cell layers and rabbit lenses in vitro transport fluid. Layers of the alphaTN4 mouse cell line and bovine cell cultures were grown to confluence on permeable membrane inserts. Fluid movement across cultured layers and excised rabbit lenses was determined by volume clamp (37 degrees C). Cultured layers transported fluid from their basal to their apical sides against a pressure head of 3 cmH2O. Rates were (in microliter. h-1. cm-2) 3.3 +/- 0.3 for alphaTN4 cells (n = 27) and 4.7 +/- 1.0 for bovine layers (n = 6). Quinidine, a blocker of K+ channels, and p-chloromercuribenzenesulfonate and HgCl2, inhibitors of aquaporins, inhibited fluid transport. Rabbit lenses transported fluid from their anterior to their posterior sides against a 2.5-cmH2O pressure head at 10.3 +/- 0.62 microliter. h-1. lens-1 (n = 5) and along the same pressure head at 12.5 +/- 1.1 microliter. h-1. lens-1 (n = 6). We calculate that this flow could wash the lens extracellular space by convection about once every 2 h and therefore might contribute to lens homeostasis and transparency.  (+info)

In forensic investigations, human biological traces have great potential to serve as strong evidence in placing a suspect at the scene of a crime. In cases where activities leading to the deposition of an individuals biological materials are disputed, the identification of body fluids and tissues may be crucial. Current catalytic, enzymatic and immunological techniques used to identify body fluids present numerous limitations such as lack of sensitivity and specificity. Hence, forensic scientists are constantly seeking exciting, novel methods to identify and analyse body fluids and aid in the reconstruction of crime scenes. Recently, DNA methylation-based markers have emerged as a reliable tool for identification of body fluids. Genome-wide methylation analysis using high throughput DNA technologies has discovered numerous differentially methylated regions (tDMRs) that differ in levels of methylation in various cell types and tissues. tDMRs may be unmethylated in particular body fluids/tissues ...

The present study investigated the effect of ingested fluid composition on the experience of exercise-related transient abdominal pain (ETAP). Forty subjects, susceptible to ETAP, completed 4 treadmill exercise trials: a no-fluid trial and flavored water (FW, no carbohydrate, osmolality = 48 mosmol/L, pH = 3.3), sports drink (SD, freshly mixed Gatorade®, 6% total carbohydrate, 295 mosmol/L, pH = 3.3), and reconstituted fruit juice (FJ, BERRI® orange, 10.4% total carbohydrate, 489 mosmol/L, pH = 3.2) trials. Measures of the experience of ETAP and gastrointestinal disturbances, particularly bloating, were quantified. The FJ was significantly (p , .01) more provocative of both ETAP and bloating than all other trials. There was no difference among the no-fluid, FW, and SD in the severity of ETAP experienced, although the difference between the no-fluid and SD approached significance at the .05 level (p = .056). There was a significant relationship between both the mean (r = 0.40, p , .01) and peak ...
Diagnosis of tuberculosis from different body fluids remains challenging due to various limitations of the conventional and molecular methods. We studied the role of adenosine deaminase (ADA) assay to diagnose tubercular infection in cerebrospinal fluid, peritoneal fluid and pleural fluid. Fifty three patients with tubercular meningitis, peritonitis and pleuritis were enrolled in this study on the basis of clinical, radiological, cytological, biochemical and somewhere bacteriological evidences. Cases positive by AFB smear, culture or PCR were considered as confirmed TB and other as probable TB cases. Another 28 non-TB cases were included as control. In 53 suspected TB cases ADA was found positive in highest 42 (79.2%) cases, whereas smear and/ culture in 10 (18.7%) and PCR in 18 (33.9%) cases. ADA assay revealed 100% positivity in confirmed TB cases and 14.3% in non TB cases. The sensitivity and specificity of ADA was found 79% and 86% respectively when the cut off value was used ≥ 10 IU/L for CSF and

Healthcare workers work on the presumption that all blood and body fluids are in fact infectious, and follow the rules whenever in contact with them.. The precautions involve hand washing immediately there is contact, the routine wearing of protective clothing and gloves, following such infection control measures that are designed to place a barrier between potentially infectious blood or body fluids and employees, adherence to work practices, and procedures for the transport and handling of infectious materials.. Whether or not a patient/client is known to be infectious, anyone coming into contact with blood and bodily fluids should cover exposed cuts and abrasions, particularly on the hands and fingers, with waterproof dressings, and take care to prevent puncture wounds, cuts and abrasions from sharps. Such accidents should be treated immediately by ...

Fluid balance is an aspect of the homeostasis of organisms in which the amount of water in the organism needs to be controlled, via osmoregulation and behavior, such that the concentrations of electrolytes (salts in solution) in the various body fluids are kept within healthy ranges. The core principle of fluid balance is that the amount of water lost from the body must equal the amount of water taken in; for example, in humans, the output (via respiration, perspiration, urination, defecation, and expectoration) must equal the input (via eating and drinking, or by parenteral intake). Euvolemia is the state of normal body fluid volume, including blood volume, interstitial fluid volume, and intracellular fluid volume; hypovolemia and hypervolemia are imbalances. Water is necessary for all life on Earth. Humans can survive for 4 to 6 weeks without food but only for a few days without water. Profuse sweating can increase the need for electrolyte replacement. Water-electrolyte imbalance produces ...
About AIDS. AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome) caused by the HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) which attack the immune system of the human body. The disease was first recognized in the year 1981. It was first identified by the name of AIDS on 27th of July in the year 1982.. HIV infection can be easily transmitted from one person to the other if they have contacted ever directly through the mucous membrane, bodily fluid or blood. In the earlier period, there was a lot of social stigma for the people with HIV/AIDS. According to the estimate, it has been noted that around 33 million people have been infected with the HIV and 2 million people died because of it each year.. HIV is a virus which attacks the T-cells of the immune system and causes the disease known as AIDS. It is found in the human body fluids like blood, semen, vaginal fluids, breast milk of the infected person which can be passed to others by a direct contact like blood transfusion, oral ...
3β,7α-Dihydroxyandrost-5-en-17-one (1) (7α-OH-DHEA) and its 7β-hydroxy epimer 2 (7β-OH-DHEA) - 7α- and 7β-hydroxydehydroepiandrosterone - were detected and quantified in three human body fluids: in blood serum, saliva and ejaculate. Specific radioimmunoassay and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry have been used. For the first time the data on changes of these dehydroepiandrosterone metabolites are reported for a representative group of healthy subjects of both sexes (172 females and 217 males) during the life span. The serum levels of both 7-hydroxydehydroepiandrosterone epimers in serum and also in semen were in the low nanomolar range, while concentrations by one order of magnitude lower were found in saliva, but still within the detection limit. The results will serve as a basis for comparative studies of 7-hydroxydehydroepiandrosterone levels under various pathophysiological conditions, with a particular respect to autoimmune disorders. Keywords: Steroids; Hormones; Metabolites; ...
This thesis provides results from affinity based studies where human body fluids were profiled to find markers for neurological diseases. Both proteins and autoantibodies were analysed using microarray technologies that can profile hundreds of analytes and hundreds of samples in parallel using small sample volumes. A central element in this work was to develop and apply new methods to study cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which is the fluid in direct contact with the brain. CSF contains proteins reflecting the physiological state of the central nervous system and therefore offers a unique insight into proteins associated to neurological disorders. As a complement to CSF, bloodderived samples such as serum and plasma, were also investigated as these represent potential sources of disease related proteins. The work presented here summarises the development of assay protocols to study protein and autoantibodies in CSF and blood using planar and bead-based microarrays.. In Paper I, an antibody-based ...
These secrete perspiration, the evaporation of which assists control human body temperature. Perspiration also incorporates little amounts of sodium chloride, cholesterol, aluminum, and urea; it Hence plays a task in regulating the composition of human body fluids.

This chapter reviews the evidence on virus load in various body fluids and the findings are considered in relation to virus transmission. The value of anti-HIV antibodies in assessing HIV infection is discussed in this chapter. The transmission of HIV by genital fluids is more likely through virus-infected cells than free virus since cells can be present in higher numbers than free infectious virus in these body fluids. The risk of HIV transmission is increased with high levels of virus in the body fluids and the number of contacts an individual has with a body fluid. The receptive partner in sexual transmission is most at risk. In women, cells in the cervix or within the endometrium can be infected. In men and women, the infection site can involve bowel mucosal cells or lymphocytes and macrophages present in the rectum. The insertive partner may be infected by cells along the urethral canal or associated with the prepuce. Risk of HIV infection by blood depends on the level of infectious virus in this

The inflammation, as the general reaction, of gastric mucosa seems to be the same. The role of inflammation in the development of different diseases was suggested by Hyppocrates (B.C. 460-377), who stated that the changes in the blood flow and other body fluids are caused by local irritations of organs („ubi stimulus, idi fluxus). The appearence of classical inflammation were given by Aulus Cornelius Celsus ( B.C. 25- A.C. 50 ) as „tumor,calor, dolor, rubor and Claudius Galenos (A.C. 129-200/201) gave the last basic parameter of the inflammation as „functio laesa to the previously mentinoned characteristic medical phenomena.These terminological questions were accepted by Wirchow in the 19th centrury, and many other famous researchers in our days ...

It is believed that between people, Ebola disease spreads only by direct contact with the blood or other body fluids of a person who has developed symptoms of the disease. Body fluids that may contain Ebola viruses include saliva, mucus, vomit, feces, sweat, tears, breast milk, urine and semen. The WHO states that only people who are very sick are able to spread Ebola disease in saliva, and whole virus has not been reported to be transmitted through sweat. Most people spread the virus through blood, feces and vomit. Entry points for the virus include the nose, mouth, eyes, open wounds, cuts and abrasions. Ebola may be spread through large droplets; however, this is believed to occur only when a person is very sick. This contamination can happen if a person is splashed with droplets. Contact with surfaces or objects contaminated by the virus, particularly needles and syringes, may also transmit the infection. The virus is able to survive on objects for a few hours in a dried state, and can ...

To the Editors: Why students have misconceptions about the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in health care settings is easy to understand (1). The short, tragic history of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic is replete with underappreciation by the experts of the potential risks of transmission associated with various body fluids. The number of persons who developed AIDS after receiving a blood transfusion at the start of the epidemic is a case in point.. Granich and Mermin (1) criticize the misconception among medical students that HIV could be transmitted through aerosolization of body fluids. Just this past week ...

DEAR DR. ROACH: My husband was hospitalized with congestive heart failure. He returned home, grew weaker, and after three days was diagnosed with severe dehydration and passed away the following day. How can that happen so quickly? Can medication be a factor? Please explain how the body organs are affected by severe dehydration.
The human body includes both organic minerals, e.g., hemoglobin (red blood cells) contain iron, many amino acids and proteins contain sulfur, as well as inorganic minerals, e.g., salt-sodium chloride-in the blood, lymphatic fluids, and many other body fluids, which includes metallic and non-metallic minerals.. Obviously, you would die without hemoglobin (organic iron) and salt (inorganic sodium, a metal/mineral). Additionally, the body can certainly use inorganic iron; see Fomon et al. [1995], Abrams et al. [1996], and Cook and Reddy [1995] for experimental verification.. However, table salt is 98% sodium chloride [an unnatural chemical form of salt that your body recognizes as something completely foreign] - no trace minerals, no natural balance. Ordinary table salt is a chemical as clean as Heroin or White Sugar. It almost always contain additives, like 0.01% of potassium-iodide, a chemical form of iodine (added to the salt to avoid iodine deficiency disease of the thyroid gland), sugar (added ...

You can get really complex tests here, but I would start simple and look for levels of SIgA and IgA first. These are really important antibodies, which the body produces to fight bacteria, viruses, allergens etc. You can do a GAM Test IgG, IgA, IgM (RG), which will show you the totals of the main antibodies.. Roughly:. Immunoglobulin M (IgM) is found mainly in blood and lymph fluid. This is the first antibody the body makes when it fights a new infection so if this is high, you likely have an acute or developing issue.. Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is found in the linings of the respiratory tract and digestive system as well as in saliva, tears and breast milk.. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) is the most common antibody. Its in blood and other body fluids, and protects against bacterial and viral infections. This usually denotes a chronic issue or something thats been going on for a long time.. You can read much more about this here. Suffice to say, if the levels are low, your immunity could do with a ...
This study is designed to assess the sensitivity and specificity of ROM PLUS- a rapid, point of care, qualitative immunochromatographic test for the detection (in vitro) of amniotic fluid in cervico-vaginal secretions of women with suspected rupture of membranes (ROM) during pregnancy. The ROM PLUS detects a specific Combo protein present in amniotic fluid of pregnant women in all trimesters of pregnancy. This specific protein combo is unique and found only in amniotic fluid, therefore can be used as a specific marker for the diagnosis of ROM. This biomarker is an isoform of a similar biomarkers called Amni-Sure and ActimProm and was recently approved by the FDA for clinical use. Like these protein markers ( AmniSure or ActimProm) which have been used to diagnose PROM, this particular protein isoform tested for ROM PLUS is in low concentration in other body fluids such as maternal blood, cord blood, urine and semen ...
Citation: N/A Interpretive Summary: Cell-mediated immunity (CMI) plays an important role in host resistance to diseases. Recent studies show that CMI is mediated by soluble factors called cytokines which are secreted by lymphocytes and macrophages. In chickens, progress in understanding cell-mediated immunity is hampered by inability to assay cellular response of chickens. In this study, ARS scientists developed the first in vitro assay to assess a cytokine called interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) which is produced by activated T cells. This assay uses specific mouse monoclonal antibodies (mabs) which detect chicken IFN-gamma and can be used to measure IFN-gamma production in serum and in other body fluids in chickens. Since IFN-gamma plays an important role in CMI, the ability to measure this cytokine in various biological samples will enhance scientists ability to assess chicken cellular responses to vaccines and infectious agents. This will enable the poultry industry to use more effective ...
Laboratory tests are performed using only laboratory equipment and agents from trusted manufacturers. Laboratory testing is a very important tool for identifying changes in human health, prescribing treatment, assessing its effects, etc. Tests are prescribed and evaluated by the treating physician, who takes into account the patients state of health and health disorders. We also encourage patients to arrive for preventive checks.. Clinical tests are general laboratory tests of blood, urine and other body fluids. Automatic blood and urine testing includes some of the major analyses performed almost every time you visit a doctor. Sometimes, a more detailed examination of blood or urine is required, then a microscopic examination of individual blood components and urine is performed, and the condition of cells is evaluated. If necessary, the doctor will prescribe a microscopic examination of the stool - a coprogram. Clinical tests also include the tests of prostate secretions, sperm, synovial ...

The test is not a viral test to identify if there is a current infection.. Results are ...
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks an infected persons immune system. HIV destroys CD4 cells, a type of white blood cell that fights infection. If left untreated, a person infected with HIV is likely to develop other infections and/or infection-related cancers. HIV can develop into acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), which is the most advanced and life-threatening stage of HIV. A person is considered to have AIDS when their CD4 count is below 200 cells per cubic millimeter of blood (cells/mm3)-healthy peoples counts run from 500-1,600 cells/mm3-or when they develop one or more opportunistic infections. Opportunistic infections are infections caused by an organism that does not normally cause disease in healthy people.. HIV can be transmitted from an infected person through blood, semen, vaginal and other body fluids, and breast milk. HIV can be transmitted through unprotected sex; infected needles, syringes and other infection equipment; and from an infected ...
An extremely rare case of female-to-female sexual transmission of HIV has been reported in the United States. The report concerns a 46-year-old woman who appears to have acquired HIV during a six-month monogamous HIV serodiscordant sexual relationship with a 43-year-old woman. The newly diagnosed woman had no other risk factors for HIV and phylogenetic analysis revealed that the viruses the two women have are closely related. The case is reported in the March 14 edition of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. This report describes a case of HIV transmission likely by sexual contact between female partners, comment the authors. Other risk factors for HIV transmission were not reported by the newly infected woman, and the viruses infecting the two women were virtually identical.. Confirmed cases of female-to-female transmission of HIV via sexual contact are extremely rare. However, possible modes of female-to-female transmission during sex include exposure to vaginal or other body fluids, ...
