1. Approaches to studying costimulation of human antiviral T cell responses: prospects for immunotherapeutic vaccines.
Match Strength: 5.015
The generation of strong and specific CD8 T cell responses is important in the control of viral infections. Costimulatory molecules provide signals necessary for the development or maintenance of these responses. A major focus of our laboratory is to investigate the role of costimulatory molecules of the TNFR and CD28 families in antiviral responses. Our aim is to translate information obtained using murine models to the study of these molecules using human cells. We have devised an in vitro system using recombinant replication- deficient adenovirus to deliver costimulatory molecules to ... Read More »

2. Comparison of multiplex PCR assays and conventional techniques for the diagnostic of respiratory virus infections in children admitted to hospital with an acute respiratory illness.
Match Strength: 3.626
The performances of four multiplex PCR (m-PCR) were compared to direct immunofluorescence assay (DFA) and HuH7 cell culture for the detection of viruses in 263 children admitted to hospital with an acute respiratory illness. One hundred fifty (57.6%) nasal aspirates were found DFA-positive; 188 (72.3%) were found positive by both DFA and HuH7 cell culture, and 242 (92%) were PCR-positive. The m-PCR detected 124 viruses which were not found by conventional methods: 68 rhinovirus, 17 human metapneumovirus, 15 respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), 8 parainfluenza virus (PIV), 5 coronavirus 229E, 3 ...
