  5. Induction of HIV-1-Specific Mucosal Immune Responses Following Intramuscular Recombinant Adenovirus Serotype 26 HIV-1 Vaccination of Humans.

    Journal of Infectious Diseases 211(4):518 (2015) PMID 25165165

    Defining mucosal immune responses and inflammation to candidate human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) vaccines represents a current research priority for the HIV-1 vaccine field. In particular, it is unclear whether intramuscular immunization can elicit immune responses at mucosal surfaces...

  10. Risk factors for invasive fungal disease in heart transplant recipients.

    The Journal of Heart and Lung Transplantation 34(2):227 (2015) PMID 25455750

    Heart transplant (HT) recipients are at risk for invasive fungal disease (IFD), a morbid and potentially fatal complication. We performed a retrospective cohort study to evaluate the incidence and risk factors for IFD in HT recipients from 1995 to 2012 at a single center. IFD cases were classifi...

  12. Patulous Eustachian Tube Causing Hypermobile Eardrums

    New England Journal of Medicine 371(25):e37 (2014)

    A 20-year-old man presented with a history of popping sounds in both ears during deep breathing. Audiometry showed normal hearing. Otoscopy revealed indrawn and severely atrophic eardrums that moved outward on nasal expiration and inward on inspiration, shown in a video. A 20...

  15. Out of Africa — Caring for Patients with Ebola

    New England Journal of Medicine 371(25):2430 (2014)

    Although the Ebola virus was recognized in 1976,1 until now Ebola virus disease (EVD) had been confined to remote areas in Africa, occurring in discrete outbreaks. Even with the thousands of cases in the current outbreak, most cases occur in areas where tragically few resources are ava...
  16. A breath fungal secondary metabolite signature to diagnose invasive aspergillosis.

    Clinical Infectious Diseases 59(12):1733 (2014) PMID 25342502 PMCID PMC4311178

    Invasive aspergillosis (IA) remains a leading cause of mortality in immunocompromised patients, in part due to the difficulty of diagnosing this infection. Using thermal desorption-gas chromatography/mass spectrometry, we characterized the in vitro volatile metabolite profile of Aspergillus fumi...
