Since the first reported case of AIDS 27 years ago, more than 70 million people have been infected with HIV worldwide, and 25 million have died of AIDS. The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates ...
The role of angiotensin ll and oxidative stress in the spontaneously hypertensive rat.
Oxidative stress resulting from an imbalance between free radicals and antioxidants is considered to be an important etiological factor in the development and maintenance of hypertension. Angiotensin II (Ang II) has been ...
HIV-specific CD8+ T cell responses in infected infacts enrolled on a study of early highly active antiretroviral treatment (HAART) and supervised treatment interruption (STI).
The manifestation of HIV-1 infection is different in children and adults. Most of the children who acquire HIV perinatally progress to disease within the first two years of life, while adults can remain asymptomatic for ...

The role of leptin in HIV associated pre-eclampsia.
HIV and hypertensive disorders in pregnancy, in particular pre-eclampsia, are the main causes of maternal mortality in South Africa. In HIV associated pre-eclampsia, it is biologically plausible that the immune activation ...
Analysis of a multidrug resistant acinetobacter SPP. outbreak in the intensive care unit of King Edward VIII Hospital.
The study arose out of a need to investigate and control a nosocomial outbreak caused by multidrug resistant Acinetobacter spp in the fifteen-bed intensive care unit of King Edward VIII Hospital. Following the discovery ...
Biotyping Saccharomyces cerevisiae strains using matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS)
In clinical diagnosis and fermentation industries there is a need for a method that allows for the differentiation of yeast to the strain level (biotyping). The ideal biotyping method should be accurate, simple, rapid ...
Determination of exposure of humans to selected mycotoxins with particular reference to aflatoxins.
Mycotoxins are poisonous secondary metabolites commonly produced by fungi and are involved in human disease conditions known as mycotoxicoses. There is evidence to show that food eaten by the rural Black population of ...
Neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies : their clinical associations and an improved method for their detection.
The test for antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) was introduced into the author's laboratory in 1987. An improved indirect immunofluorescent method was developed, using a system which allows 16 instead of one serum ...
