Human Retroviral Infections: Immunological and Therapeutic by Kenneth E. Ugen, Mauro Bendinelli, Herman Friedman

By Kenneth E. Ugen, Mauro Bendinelli, Herman Friedman

This ebook brings jointly specialists within the box of human retroviral pathogenesis, vaccine improvement, and the medical remedy of AIDS. the issues dealing with the advance of a good vaccine opposed to HIV-1 is the facility of the virus, really within the immunogenic envelope glycoprotein, to endure amino acid hypervariability, therefore creating a vaccine opposed to one envelope glycoprotein useless opposed to different viruses because of their mutability.

Holographic Sensors

This thesis offers a theoretical and experimental process for the swift fabrication, optimization and checking out of holographic sensors for the quantification of pH, natural solvents, steel cations, and glucose in suggestions. constructing non-invasive and reusable diagnostics sensors that may be simply synthetic will help the tracking of high-risk members in any medical or point-of-care environment.

58 Taken together, these observations provide substantial indirect evidence implicating a retrovirus in the pathogenesis of Sjogren’s syndrome. Whether this is prototypical HTLV-I or another retrovirus is yet to be determined. A number of investigators have reported serologic abnormalities of the thyroid in association with HTLV-I and HTLV-II. 59 examined a group of blood donors for antithyroid antibodies and anti-HTLV-I antibodies and found a high frequency of HTLV-I seropositivity in blood donors with antithyroid antibodies.
