Example sentences for: immunocompromised

How can you use “immunocompromised” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • This mutation has also been detected in clinical isolates from patients immunocompromised [ 12 ] or with AIDS [ 19 ] as well as resistant HSV selected in tissue culture [ 15 18 ] . Interestingly, this mutation was present in ACV rclinical isolates obtained during reactivation in the absence of drug pressure, as well as in ACV rstrains which evolved during ACV therapy and were followed by ACV-susceptible isolates at the next reactivation [ 19 ] .

  • For example, M. bovis has been shown to grow within macrophages whereas BCG strains do not [ 23 ] . This observation is controversial since there are reports of immunocompromised patients with disseminated BCG.

  • injection of suckling mice induces vascular lesions in the aorta and pulmonary artery, which are characterized by cellular infiltrates containing T-lymphocytes [ 36 ] . A more recent study describes the development of MCMV induced vascular lesions in the aorta of both immunocompetent mice and those lacking IFN-γ responsiveness where IFN-γ is determined to be a major antiviral factor preventing the long term persistence of aortic vascular lesions [ 18 ] . The present study focused on neointima formation, which was seen only in immunocompromised mice.

  • Cryptosporidium oocysts have an ubiquitous geographic distribution and can be detected in most surface drinking water sources [ 8 ] . The oocysts are resistant to environmental degradation [ 9 ] , survive chlorination water treatment, and are too small (4 to 6 microns) to be removed by conventional water filters [ 6 ] . Risk factors for acquiring cryptosporidiosis have been determined primarily in studies of community-wide outbreaks, and drinking water has been implicated as the source of these outbreaks [ 9 10 11 12 13 14 ] . Case-control studies in AIDS patients have also been conducted during outbreaks [ 12 15 ] , but levels of endemic risk in the United States remain uncertain, even though there is great concern for diarrheal disease associated with drinking water in this population [ 16 17 ] . Because defining the risk associated with drinking tap water is particularly important for counseling immunocompromised patients on reducing their risk of cryptosporidiosis, we conducted a case-control study among persons with AIDS in San Francisco to test the hypothesis that the pattern of tap water consumption is associated with the development of endemic cryptosporidiosis.

  • After transplantation into immunocompromised mice, circulating human insulin and C-peptide derived from the proinsulin precursor were detected when the mice were given glucose.
