Journal Article
Davidson, E. J., Brown, M. D., Burt, D. J., Parish, J. L., Gaston, K., Kitchener, H. C., …Stern, P. L. (2001). Human T-cell responses to HPV 16 E2 generated with monocyte-derived dendritic cells. International Journal of Cancer, 94(6), 807-812. doi:10.1002/ijc.1558

Persistent infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) type 16 has been implicated in the etiology of cervical cancer. The E2 protein is required early in viral infection and therefore may serve as a useful immune target for a vaccine aimed at preventi... Read More

Monospecific helminth and arthropod infections in an urban population of brown rats from Doha, Qatar (2001)
Journal Article
Abu-Madi, M. A., Lewis, J. W., Mikhail, M., El-Nagger, M., & Behnke, J. M. (2001). Monospecific helminth and arthropod infections in an urban population of brown rats from Doha, Qatar. Journal of Helminthology, 75(4), ISSN 0022-149X

Parasitic infections were studied for the first time in an urban population of brown rats (Rattus norvegicus) from Doha. Only one species of helminth was found, the cestode Hymenolepis diminuta, and one ectoparasite, the flea Xenopsylla astia, from a... Read More
