The acquired immunodeficiency syndrome: an update

Physician Assistant : the Official Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants
W A Stein, J F Cawley


With the number of reported cases exceeding 15,000 as of December 1, 1985, the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) continues to spread with alarming frequency. Over 100 cases per week are reported to the Centers for Disease Control. PAs and other clinicians face a formidable task of keeping up with continual updates in the medical literature and lay press. This report summarizes current information on AIDS and highlights those clinical, epidemiologic and control features that are most relevant to primary care clinicians. Recognizing that it is impossible to be totally current, the authors have made every effort to report the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Torsion Dystonia

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.
