Mechanism of Cytotoxicity of the Aids Virus, HTLV-III/LAV by Lee Ratner( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study was undertaken in order to devise a quantitative assay of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) load in patients' tissues. No methods are currently available which are both sensitive and specific for this purpose. Our method utilizes blood mononuclear cell or tissue DNA. HIV-1 sequences are amplified by the primer chain amplification reaction (PCR) technique. The reaction products are detected and quantitated by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, ethidium bromide stain, and Southern blot hybridization. This method has proven successful using a single set of primers in detection of HIV-1 DNA sequences from 10 of 12 HIV-1 infected individuals, and 0 of 10 uninfected individuals. Methods of quantitation of using standard curves with defined amounts of HIV-1 DNA sequences and internal controls are under investigation. In addition, we have developed a sensitive and specific assay from HTLV-1 and HTLV-II DNA sequences using the same methodology and we have successfully applied it to the evaluation of blood samples from asymptomatic HTVL-1 infected individuals and individuals with adult T cell leukemia-lymphoma.

Selection and characterization of drug-resistant variants of human immunodeficiency virus (AIDS) : [final report] by John Mellors( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The original aims of this 5 year project were (i) to complete the molecular characterization of variants HW-1 that are resistant to the pyrophosphate analog foscarnet, (ii) to identify by in vitro selection variants of HIV-1 that are resistant to new reverse transcriptase (RT) and protease inhibitors that are in preclinical or early clinical stages of evaluation, and (iii) to construct a panel of drug-resistant infectious proviral clones for use as standards in HW-1 drug susceptibility assays. During the 14 month period of funding, major progress has been made on each of these aims. First, we have completed a comprehensive analysis of the genetic basis for HW-1 resistance to foscarnet. Six novel mutations in HIV-1 RT have been identified in foscarnet resistant laboratory and clinical isolates. In addition, important interactions between foscarnet and azidothymidine resistance have been identified. Second, we have isolated a variant of HIV-1 that is resistant to the novel RT inhibitor dioxolane guanosine and encodes a K65R mutation in the IKKK motif of HIV-1 RT. Third, we have engineered an HlV-1 proviral clone to encode unique silent restriction sites that allow rapid cloning of mutant protease or RT genes into the provirus. Using this novel vector we have produced stocks of recombinant mutant viruses that are highly resistant to foscarnet, nonnucleoside RT inhibitors, azidothymidine, or oxathiolane cytosine nucleosides (e.g. 3TC). In summary, new discoveries and several products of importance to HW research have arisen from this project during the short period of funding

Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Research (AIDS) by John Lowe( )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive HIV Research Program conducted studies in the areas or Vaccines and Immunotherapy/Immunoprophylaxis, Epidemiology/Natural History, Behavioral Medicine, Chemotherapy/Chemoprophylaxis, Retroviral Biology, Animal models, Diagnostics and opportunistic Infections. Research was directed towards ameliorating the effects of HIV infections within the US Armed Forces. Program priorities were early stage disease over late stage disease; interventions over descriptive studies; and primary anti-retroviral therapy over treatment/ prophylaxis of opportunistic infection or symptomatic therapy of late stage disease. Research involved clinical trials, natural history studies, and laboratory and animal model studies. Significant outcomes of this research included (but not limited) to: Volunteers, EA I, Therapeutic trials, HIV, Retrovirus clinical facility, WRAMC, Biotechnology
A Novel DNA-Based Vaccine Methodology for AIDS by Joel R Haynes( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gene gun-based DNA immunization studies in mice using an HIV-l gp120 expression vector demonstrated that modest effects on the strength and quality of gpl2O-specific immune responses could be elicited via the codelivery of vectors encoding murine IL-2, IL-7, or IL. 12. However, much more dramatic effects on gp 120-specific immune responses could be elicited by administering fewer immunizations over a longer time frame. In the nonhuman primate model, synergistic effects on the induction of HIV or SIV gpI2O-specific antibody titers were observed when gene gun immunizations were boosted with either recombinant subunit or recombinant vaccinia virus vaccines, In addition, a measurable vaccine effect was observed in rhesus macaques, in that lower virus loads and higher CD4 counts were observed in gene gun-vaccinated animals relative to naive controls following a heterologous challenge with SIVB67O. Protection was not correlated with the strength of gp120- specific antibody titers. In the swine model, very strong humoral responses were observed in a three dose regimen using as little as 0.5 ug of DNA per immunization. These responses were equivalent to those elicited following administration of a commercial adjuvanted recombinant subunit vaccine
Interactions of HIV-1 and HIV-2 in West Africa by Phyllis J Kanki( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have demonstrated in populations of HIV-2 and HIV-1 infected individuals that these related viruses have distinct biologic properties. We have shown over a 12 year period the differences in HIV-2 and HIV-1 incidence and prevalence; where HIV-2 appears to be less transmissible by heterosexual sex. In natural history studies we have shown significant differences in the progression to AIDS, where HIV-2 behaved as a less pathogenic virus. This led to the hypothesis that it might protect individuals from subsequent HIV-1 infection, which was shown in our recent studies. In preparation for future vaccine cohorts, we have characterized the HIV-1 subtypes in our seroconverting women and demonstrated differences in their progression to AIDS, with A subtypes showing a longer disease free incubation period compared to subtypes C, D, and G. Immunologic studies of these women have demonstrated that they are capable of recognizing subtype B targets, suggesting that vaccines based on subtype B could be broadly protective
Dual Modality Imaging System for Breast Cancer Research( )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 25-40% of the general female population with radiodense breast parenchyma, clinically occult lesions may be invisible in the screen-film mammogram. Even if suspicious masses are detected, determination of the benign or malignant nature of a mass is often impossible from the x-ray image. There is thus a need for diagnostic procedures that can noninvasively help characterize suspicious breast lesions. Scintimammography is an imaging technique that shows promise as an adjunct diagnostic tool in problem solving mammography, for monitoring recurrence after surgery, and in the assessment of multidrug-resistance. However, because clinical Anger cameras have only moderate spatial resolution and are difficult to position close to the breast, small lesions are difficult to detect. In addition, no direct means exists of correlating mammographic and scintigraphic information because of the significantly different shape of the breast in mammography (compressed) and scintimammography (prone, pendulant). We are developing an imaging system that overcomes these problems by combining digital x-ray mammography and gamma emission scintigraphy in a single, integrated system. The system is mounted on a standard upright mammography unit, and can easily be placed in a typical mammography room, providing accessibility even for small breast imaging clinics not associated with major medical centers
