Congenital Human Immunodeficiency Virus

Common Name(s)

Congenital Human Immunodeficiency Virus

The pathogenesis of HIV infection and the progression from infection to AIDS vary significantly between exposed individuals. Infection occurs after the virus, which has macrophage (M)- and T lymphocyte (T)-tropic strains and more than 12 subtypes, survives an array of nonspecific, nongenetic environmental and host factors.

Congenital toxoplasmosis transmitted by human immunodeficiency-virus infected women.
 

Author(s): Kátia Martins Lopes de Azevedo, Sérgio Setúbal, Vania Gloria Silami Lopes, Luiz Antônio Bastos Camacho, Solange Artimos de Oliveira

Journal: Braz J Infect Dis. ;14(2):186-9.

 

We report the occurrence of congenital toxoplasmosis in three infants born to HIV infected women who had high anti-toxoplasma IgG and negative IgM during pregnancy. We briefly reviewed available literature and discussed the possible transmission mechanisms of congenital toxoplasmosis ...

Effect of low- and intermediate-purity clotting factor therapy on progression of human immunodeficiency virus infection in congenital clotting disorders. Transfusion Safety Study Group.
 

Author(s): G F Gjerset, M C Pike, J W Mosley, J Hassett, M A Fletcher, E Donegan, J W Parker, R B Counts, Y Zhou, C K Kasper

Journal: Blood. 1994 Sep;84(5):1666-71.

 

Low- and intermediate-purity clotting-factor therapies are believed to accelerate human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) progression in hemophiliacs through adverse immune effects of the other plasma proteins in the preparations. To investigate this postulate, we evaluated data from six ...

Effect on lymphocyte subsets of clotting factor therapy in human immunodeficiency virus-1-negative congenital clotting disorders. The Transfusion Safety Study Group.
 

Author(s): J Hassett, G F Gjerset, J W Mosley, M A Fletcher, E Donegan, J W Parker, R B Counts, L M Aledort, H Lee, M C Pike

Journal: Blood. 1993 Aug;82(4):1351-7.

 

Patients with hemophilia A without human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection have lower CD4+ counts and CD4+/CD8+ ratios than controls. This is usually interpreted as a therapy-induced immunodeficiency. Our data re-examine the effect of therapy on peripheral blood mononuclear ...
