infectious burden and carotid plaque thickness: the northern manhattan study.the overall burden of prior infections may contribute to atherosclerosis and stroke risk. we hypothesized that serological evidence of common infections would be associated with carotid plaque thickness in a multiethnic cohort.201020075350
infectious burden and risk of stroke: the northern manhattan study.to determine the association between a composite measure of serological test results for common infections (chlamydia pneumoniae, helicobacter pylori, cytomegalovirus, and herpes simplex virus 1 and 2) and stroke risk in a prospective cohort study.201019901154
infectious chlamydia pneumoniae is associated with elevated interleukin-8 and airway neutrophilia in children with refractory asthma.neutrophilic asthma is thought to be less responsive than eosinophilic asthma to anti-inflammatory therapies including corticosteroids. chlamydia pneumoniae has been implicated in asthma, possibly by induction of interleukin (il-8). we hypothesized that il-8 is increased in the bronchoalveolar lavage (bal) fluid from children with asthma and c. pneumoniae.201021155094
infection with chlamydia pneumoniae in brooklyn.of 91 children and adults with lower respiratory tract infection, 17 (18.7%) had evidence of infection with chlamydia pneumoniae. infection was more common in older adolescents and adults than in children. only 3 of 8 culture-positive patients with paired sera had serologic evidence of acute infection. two patients were culture positive over a 12-month period. two other culture-positive patients had evidence of coinfection with other bacterial respiratory tract pathogens, which in these cases ap ...19912010629
leukocyte count is associated with aortic arch plaque thickness.leukocyte count has been associated with cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease, including carotid plaque thickness, in several studies. we hypothesized that white blood cell count is associated with aortic arch plaque thickness (aapt).200212411647
acute respiratory tract infection in daycare centers for older persons.to evaluate the rate of specific pathogens and clinical syndromes associated with acute respiratory tract infections (arti) in frail older persons attending daycare.19957806736
chlamydia pneumoniae and the risk of first ischemic stroke : the northern manhattan stroke study.serological evidence of infection with chlamydia pneumoniae has been associated with cardiovascular disease in multiple epidemiological studies. the data on its association with ischemic stroke are limited. we sought to determine whether chronic c pneumoniae infection is associated with ischemic stroke in a multi-ethnic population.200010884447
infection with simkania negevensis in brooklyn, new york.simkania negevensis is a chlamydia-like intracellular organism that is prevalent in populations from a wide range of geographic areas. the role of the organism in respiratory disease in the united states is unknown.200516282935
