ALISON LEVINE

WORLD-CLASS ADVENTURER ALISON LEVINE SETS HER SIGHTS ON CONQUERING THE ANTARCTIC

Levine could soon become the first North American to reach the South Pole via a route inspired by legendary explorer Reinhold Messner. She’ll make the entire journey on skis and on foot (no sled dogs) and will haul 150 pounds of gear while crossing 550 miles of what is considered the harshest environment on the planet.

Her eight-week journey on the ice is currently in progress. Her mantra: “No whining, no crying, and luckily no shrinkage.” For more information, visit daredevilstrategies.com. For speaking inquiries, contact Keppler Speakers at 703-516-4000.

The following quotation will clear things up for the scientifically minded. Urine and peripheral blood samples from 48 human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) seropositive individuals (38 adults and 10 children) were evaluated for the presence of HIV-1 by cocultivation and for HIV-1 p24 antigen by ELISA. None of the urine samples contained replication-competent HIV-1; 41 (85%) of 48 simultaneously obtained peripheral blood mononuclear cell samples contained replication-competent HIV-1. None of 26 urine samples available for analysis contained HIV-1 p24 antigen as determined by ELISA; 12 (34%) of 35 simultaneously obtained peripheral blood samples had detectable serum HIV-1 p24 antigen. Two of the individuals studied had HIV nephropathy, three had pyuria, and five had microscopic hematuria.
