      To delineate clinical and histological features of the first Pneumocystis carinii infection affecting the immunocompetent host, P. carinii-specific histological stains were performed on autopsy lung specimens from 534 ...
    • Azithromycin for treatment of severe Cryptosporidium diarrhea in two children with cancer 

      Vargas Munita, Sergio; Shenep, Jerry L.; Flynn, Patricia M.; Pui, Ching-Hon; Santana, Víctor M.; Hughes, Walter T. (Elsevier, 1993)
      Two children with cancer received azithromycin for Cryptosporidium-associ- ated diarrhea that was unresponsive to supportive care. One child had choler- iform diarrhea requiring daily fluid replacement of up to 65% of his ...
    • Limited persistence in and subsequent elimination of pneumocystis carinii from the lungs after P. Carinii pneumonia 

      Vargas Munita, Sergio; Hughes, Walter T.; Wakefield, Ann E.; Oz, Helieh S. (1995)
      The purpose of this study was to determine the period of persistence of Pneumocystis carinii in the lungs after P. carinii pneumonitis (PCP). After primary PCP was induced with dexamethasone, experimental rats were moved ...
