  • Genetic growth potential interacts with nutrition on the ability of mice to cope with Heligmosomoides bakeri infection 

    Coltherd, J. C.; Bnger, L.; Kyriazakis, I.; Houdijk, J. G. M. (2009)
    Artificial selection for improved productivity may reduce an animal's ability to cope with pathogens. Here, we used Roslin mice, uniquely divergently selected for high (ROH) and low (ROL) body weight, to assess interactive ...
  • Helicobacter pylori infection and respiratory diseases: A review 

    Roussos, A.; Philippou, N.; Gourgoulianis, K. I. (2003)
    In the past few years, a variety of extradigestive disorders, including cardiovascular, skin, rheumatic and liver diseases, have been associated with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection. The activation of inflammatory ...
  • Infectious triggers of primary biliary cirrhosis: Do we know enough?
