1. To compare the immunophenotyping of the gut mucosa to that of the peripheral blood in HIV negative and in non-acute HIV-infected subjects
2. To compare the immunophenotyping of the peripheral blood in HIV negative and non-acute HIV-infected adults to the findings from acutely HIV-infected subjects in the WRAIR#1494/RV254/ SEARCH 010 study
3. To compare immunologic markers in the genital compartment compared to the peripheral blood in HIV negative and non-acute HIV-infected adults to the findings from acutely HIV-infected subjects in the WRAIR#1494/RV254/ SEARCH 010 study
4. Archive samples for immunologic and virologic testing
This study will provide control samples for immunologic and virologic investigations from HIV negative and non-acute HIV-infected subjects to compare to subjects with acute HIV infection in WRAIR#1494/RV254/SEARCH 010 study. These control samples will allow for correct scientific interpretation of the immunologic changes seen in acute HIV infection in the peripheral blood, gut and genital compartments.
Subjects will be recruited at the Thai Red Cross Anonymous Clinic (TRCAC) and Chulalongkorn University Hospital. Eligible subjects will undergo a one-time flexible sigmoidoscopy and biopsy at Chulalongkorn University Hospital. They will have a total of approximately 60 ml of blood draw for immunophenotyping and storage. Genital secretion will be collected in subjects who agree to this optional procedure.
It will take approximately 12 months to complete the study. Each subject will have two visits: the screening visit and the enrollment visit (within 15 days of screening visit). Subjects may also be co-enrolled in other study protocols provided blood volumes are within acceptable limits.

RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures, such as thoracoscopic sentinel lymph node biopsy, may help find breast cancer that has spread to lymph nodes between the breasts. It may also help doctors...
The goal of this clinical research study is to localize the sentinel lymph node (SLN) (s) and biopsy it (them) to see if the patient has small or low volume metastatic disease that would o...
We continue to collect information in support of the hypothesis that the histology of the first draining lymph node (sentinel node) accurately predicts the histology of the rest of the axi...
Ten to fifty percent of high-risk cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma may potentially metastasize. However, the concept of sentinel lymph node biopsy remains controversial for cutaneous squamous cell ca...
Assessment of pelvic, para-aortic or inguinal lymph nodes (LNs) provides not only important prognostic information, but also determines the need for adjuvant treatment. Sentinel lymph node (SLN) biops...
Some Trials have demonstrated that the rate of false negative results of a sentinel lymph node biopsy in patients undergoing neoadjuvant chemotherapy is >10%. The aim of this study is to identify the ...
To evaluate the experience with sentinel lymph node (SLN) biopsy in patients with early-stage cervical cancer at our hospital, and to analyze factors influencing the rate of false negatives.
First lymph node to receive drainage from the primary tumor. SENTINEL LYMPH NODE BIOPSY is performed to determine early METASTASIS status because cancer cells may appear first in the sentinel node.
A diagnostic procedure used to determine whether LYMPHATIC METASTASIS has occurred. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node to receive drainage from a neoplasm.
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show larger-than-normal band of subepithelial COLLAGEN.
A subtype of MICROSCOPIC COLITIS, characterized by chronic watery DIARRHEA of unknown origin, a normal COLONOSCOPY but abnormal histopathology on BIOPSY. Microscopic examination of biopsy samples taken from the COLON show infiltration of LYMPHOCYTES in the superficial EPITHELIUM and the underlying connective tissue (lamina propria).
Conducting a biopsy procedure with the aid of a MEDICAL IMAGING modality.
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. For example: to diagnose diseases to measure the progress or recovery from disease to confirm that a person is free from disease Clin...
