The types of immunologic
adverse events in this study were similar to those previously reported for this class of drug.
We describe the immunologic
changes that may affect the course of infectious diseases in pregnant women, briefly summarize what is known about infectious diseases during pregnancy, and then focus on the particular challenges of dealing with emerging infectious diseases in pregnant women.
The finding argues for routine screening for thyroid disease in patients with immunologic
Thyroid function tests, available in 80 patients with immunologic
thrombocytopenia, showed that 10 were hypothyroid and 6 were hyperthyroid.
Persistent hematologic and immunologic
disturbances in 8-year-old Dutch children associated with perinatal dioxin exposure.
Though antiretroviral therapy has enabled immunologic
control of HIV and viral suppression, the use of HAART is associated with decreased HIV-specific immune responses, particularly in patients with chronic HIV infection.
The first demonstration of immune system changes in laboratory studies of MS took place in 1935, but it was not until after World War II that an immunologic
cause of MS was seriously investigated.
The proposed immunologic
mechanism for the development of human diabetes after infant exposure to nonpharmacological amounts of bovine insulin could be extended to bovine growth hormone.
Among the topics are the breakdown in peripheral tolerance in type 1 diabetes (T1D) in mice and humans, humoral autoimmunity immunologic
and metabolic biomarkers of beta-cell destruction in the diagnosis of T1D, the hygiene hypothesis to explain the increasing frequency of insulin-dependent diabetes, advancing animal models of human T1D by grafting functional human tissues in immunodeficient mice, and clinical immunologic
The dose escalation study assessed safety and the immunologic
and virologic responses in 14 subjects with chronic hepatitis B infection.
