- Influence of Host Genetics on the Severity of Coccidioidomycosis. Louie, Leslie; Ng, Susanna // Emerging Infectious Diseases;Sep/Oct99, Vol. 5 Issue 5, p672
Coccidioidomycosis, a mild flulike illness in approximately 40% of infected persons, progresses to severe pulmonary or disseminated disease in 1% to 10% of symptomatic cases. We examined host genetic influences on disease severity among class II HLA loci and the ABO blood group. Participants...
- Strong HLA Class I--Restricted T Cell Responses in Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever: A Double-Edged Sword? Loke, Hsin; Bethell, Delia B.; Phuong, C.X.T.; Minh Dung; Schneider, Joerg; White, Nicholas J.; Day, Nicholas P.; Farrar, Jeremy; Hill, Adrian V.S. // Journal of Infectious Diseases;12/1/2001, Vol. 184 Issue 11, p1369
Dengue is an increasingly important cause of morbidity and mortality in the tropics, but vac-cine development has been impeded by a poor understanding of disease pathogenesis and, in particular, of immunologic enhancement. In a large case-control study of Vietnamese patients with dengue...
