Transcription of the E6 and E7 viral oncogenes of human papillomavirus (HPV) type 16 is regulated by the P97 major early promoter, and enhancer and silencer elements found in the long control region (LCR). In this study, we tested the transcriptional activity of natural HPV 16 variants having long deletions in the LCR. The HPV 16 LCR regions were amplified(More)
During the 10-month study period Salmonella contamination of broiler houses and the flocks reared in three farms (A, B and C), the slaughter houses where the flocks were slaughtered, as well as the carcass and retail raw meat products originating from them was investigated. In the broiler farm A five consecutive flocks, in the B and C farms one flock was(More)
BACKGROUND The aetiology and factors leading to the progression of laryngeal cancer are still unclear. Although human papillomavirus (HPV) has been suggested to play a role, reports concerning the effect of HPV infection on tumour development are controversial. Recently, transfusion transmitted virus (TTV) was suggested to play a role in certain infections(More)
Glycopyrrolate is a quaternary anticholinergic drug. Like for other anticholinergics, the usefulness of this agent is limited by its side effects. In this study, based on the structure of glycopyrrolate, we designed a soft drug, methoxycarbonylphenyl-cyclopentylacetoxy-N,N-dimethyl-3-p yrrolidinium methyl sulfate (SG), and its analog,(More)
UNLABELLED The relationship between resistin, one of the adipokines, and metabolic syndrome is not fully elucidated. Altered activity of the HDL-associated antioxidant enzyme paraoxonase 1 (PON1) that participates in the antioxidant defense mechanisms of HDL may have an important role in the obesity-related accelerated atherosclerosis. Inverse associations(More)
Based on the inactive metabolite approach, three different classes of soft drugs were designed and synthesized. Their cardiovascular effects and duration of actions were studied in anesthetized male Sprague-Dawley rats compared to the traditional drugs. During the experiments ECG (leads II, aVF) and beat-to-beat blood pressure (BP) from the left carotid(More)
BACKGROUND The availability of rotavirus vaccines has resulted in an intensification of post vaccine strain surveillance efforts worldwide to gain information on the impact of vaccines on prevalence of circulating rotavirus strains. OBJECTIVES In this study, the distribution of human rotavirus G and P types in Hungary is reported. In addition, the VP4 and(More)
Extravascular fibrin deposition is frequently observed within and around neoplastic tissue and has been implicated in various aspects of tumor growth. The distribution of fibrin deposits was investigated in squamous cell carcinomas representing different stages of tumor progression of the larynx (n = 25) and hypopharynx (n = 9) by immunofluorescent(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to determine the physical state of HPV16 DNA and to reveal any association between the physical state of virus DNA and pathologic or prognostic factors in HPV16 positive cervical cancers. The other aim was to estimate the role of p53 codon 72 polymorphism in disease progression. MATERIALS AND METHODS The presence and(More)
Sera of blood donors were investigated by a peptide ELISA and indirect immunofluorescence assay to assess the prevalence of HHV-8 infection in the Hungarian population. A 14 amino acid long synthetic oligopeptide from the carboxyterminus of orf65/small virus capsid antigen was used as antigen in the ELISA. ELISA results were confirmed by recombinant orf65(More)
