- Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis drug susceptibility and molecular diagnostic testingAmeeta S Kalokhe
Department of Medicine, Division of Infectious Diseases, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA 30303, USA
Am J Med Sci 345:143-8. 2013..The authors conclude that neither rapid molecular drug testing nor phenotypic methods are perfect in predicting Mtb drug susceptibility and therefore must be interpreted within the clinical context of each patient...
- Intimate partner violence among HIV-infected crack cocaine usersAmeeta S Kalokhe
Emory University School of Medicine Center for AIDS Research, Atlanta, Georgia, USA
AIDS Patient Care STDS 26:234-40. 2012..Reduced utilization of outpatient HIV care, ART nonadherence, and new STI diagnoses in this population should trigger IPV screening and support services referral...
- Aspergillus endocarditis: a review of the literatureAmeeta S Kalokhe
Infectious Diseases, Emory University, 206 Woodruff Research Extension Bldg, 49 Jesse Hill Jr Drive, Atlanta, GA 30303, USA
Int J Infect Dis 14:e1040-7. 2010..Diagnosis ultimately requires confirmation by tissue histology and culture. The optimal treatment approach often requires aggressive surgical debridement in conjunction with prolonged antifungal therapy...
- Impaired degranulation and proliferative capacity of Mycobacterium tuberculosis-specific CD8+ T cells in HIV-infected individuals with latent tuberculosisAmeeta S Kalokhe
Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medicine, Emory University School of Medicine Department of Global Health, Rollins School of Public Health
J Infect Dis 211:635-40. 2015..We found that M. tuberculosis-specific degranulation and proliferative capacities were impaired in the HIV-infected group. Thus, our results suggest that HIV coinfection compromises CD8+ T-cell functions in latent tuberculosis...

PLoS ONE 10:e0120909. 2015..Findings support the need for a culturally-tailored operational definition that expands on the WHO surveillance definition to inform the development of more effective DV intervention strategies and measures. ..
- Distinct effector memory CD4+ T cell signatures in latent Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection, BCG vaccination and clinically resolved tuberculosisToidi Adekambi
Emory Vaccine Center, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America
PLoS ONE 7:e36046. 2012..Our data suggest that differentiation into CD27(-)PD-1(+) subsets in LTBI is driven by Mtb antigenic stimulation in vivo and that CD27 and PD-1 have the potential to improve our ability to evaluate true LTBI status...
