### A plaque assay for all cells secreting Ig of a given type or class

E Gronowicz, A Coutinho… - European journal of …, 1976 - Wiley Online Library
Abstract A modification of the hemolytic plaque assay using protein A-coated red cells is
described which makes use of the fact that the Fc portion of IgG binds to protein A. A number
of murine plasmacytomas secreting different classes of Ig have been tested for plaque

### Prognostic value of HIV-1 syncytium-inducing phenotype for rate of CD4+ cell depletion and progression to AIDS

…, MTL Roos, RA Coutinho… - Annals of internal …, 1993 - Am Coll Physicians
Objective: To investigate the relation between detection of syncytium-inducing (SI), human
immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) variants, rate of CD4+ cell decline, and clinical
progression. Design: Prospective study during a 2.5-year follow-up period; cohort study with

### [HTML][HTML]Electron reconstruction and identification efficiency measurements with the ATLAS detector using the 2011 LHC proton–proton collision data

…, MG Alviggi, K Amako, YA Coutinho… - The European Physical …, 2014 - Springer
Abstract Many of the interesting physics processes to be measured at the LHC have a
signature involving one or more isolated electrons. The electron reconstruction and
identification efficiencies of the ATLAS detector at the LHC have been evaluated using

### Persistent immune activation in HIV-1 infection is associated with progression to AIDS

…, SA Otto, BHB van Benthem, MTL Roos, RA Coutinho… - Aids, 2003 - journals.lww.com
Background: HIV-1 infection is characterized by chronic generalized CD8 and CD4 T cell
hyperactivation, the biological effect of which is not understood. Objective: To study the
relation between chronic immune activation and CD4 T cell depletion in HIV-1 infection.

### Expression of human immunodeficiency virus antigen (HIV-Ag) in serum and cerebrospinal fluid during acute and chronic infection

…, WJA Krone, EC Wolters, JM Oleske, RA Coutinho - The lancet, 1986 - Elsevier
Abstract Human immunodeficiency virus antigen (HIV-Ag) was detected in the serum of most
adult (13/16) and paediatric (6/6) AIDS patients and rarely in the serum of symptomless
seropositive controls (1/13). It was present in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of all 5 children

### Jet energy measurement and its systematic uncertainty in proton–proton collisions at\sqrt {s}= 7 TeV with the ATLAS detector

…, MG Alviggi, K Amako, YA Coutinho… - The European Physical …, 2015 - Springer
Abstract The jet energy scale (JES) and its systematic uncertainty are determined for jets
measured with the ATLAS detector using proton–proton collision data with a centre-of-mass
energy of$$\sqrt {s}= 7$$ TeV corresponding to an integrated luminosity of$$4.7$$\(\,\,\text {fb}^{-

### [HTML][HTML]Measurement of the muon reconstruction performance of the ATLAS detector using 2011 and 2012 LHC proton–proton collision data

…, MG Alviggi, K Amako, YA Coutinho… - The European Physical …, 2014 - Springer
Abstract This paper presents the performance of the ATLAS muon reconstruction during the
LHC run with pp pp collisions at s= 7 s= 7–8 TeV in 2011–2012, focusing mainly on data
collected in 2012. Measurements of the reconstruction efficiency and of the momentum scale

### Combined Measurement of the Higgs Boson Mass in pp Collisions at s= 7 and 8 TeV with the ATLAS and CMS Experiments

…, MG Alviggi, BT Amadio, K Amako, YA Coutinho… - Physical review …, 2015 - APS
Abstract A measurement of the Higgs boson mass is presented based on the combined data
samples of the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC in the H→ γ γ and H→ ZZ→
4 ℓ decay channels. The results are obtained from a simultaneous fit to the reconstructed

### Natural autoantibodies

A Coutinho, MD Kazatchkine, S Avrameas - Current opinion in immunology, 1995 - Elsevier
Autoantibodies of the IgM, IgG and IgA classes, reactive with a variety of serum proteins, cell
surface structures and intracellular structures, are 'naturally'found in all normal individuals.
Present in human cord blood and in 'antigen-free'mice, their variable-region repertoire is

### Macrophage-tropic variants initiate human immunodeficiency virus type 1 infection after sexual, parenteral, and vertical transmission.

…, J Veenstra, K Boer, RA Coutinho… - Journal of Clinical …, 1994 - ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
Abstract Macrophage-tropic, non-syncytium-inducing, HIV-1 variants predominate in the
asymptomatic phase of infection and may be responsible for establishing infection in an
individual exposed to the mixture of HIV-1 variants. Here, genotypical and phenotypical
