    Abstract: To elucidate the basis of protective immunity in T and B cell deficient rag1-/- mutant zebrafish, we conducted microarray analysis of 15,617 genes from rag1-/- mutant zebrafish 48 hours after a primary response and 48 hours after a secondary response. Following primary exposure, the highest fold expression differences (3.8 to 4.95) were genes for s... Show More

    Abstract: The present study was designed to determine the levels of C-reactive protein and creatine kinase-MM in Nigerian naïve (stage 2) HIV seropositive subjects co-infected with Plasmodium falciparum. A total of 204 subjects (aged between 18 and 45 years) were randomly studied. Among these were 74 naïve (stage 2) HIV seropositive subjects (confirmed by We... Show More
