BACKGROUND Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6), mostly variant B reactivation in renal transplant patients has been published by other authors, but the pathogenetic role of HHV-6 variant A has not been clarified. Our aims were to examine the prevalence of HHV-6, to determine the variants, and to investigate the interaction between HHV-6 viraemia, human(More)
WU and KI polyomaviruses (WUPyV, KIPyV) have been detected in respiratory, blood, stool, and lymphoid tissue, but not in urine samples. PCR based detection revealed higher frequency in immunocompromised individuals. In this study the prevalence of WUPyV and KIPyV was analyzed in respiratory, urine, and blood samples from renal transplant patients compared(More)
BACKGROUND Immunosuppression due to pregnancy may lead to higher susceptibility to infections and reactivation of latent infections, such as BK polyomavirus (BKPyV). There is lack of information about the prevalence of novel human polyomavirus 9 (HPyV9), WU (WUPyV) and KI (KIPyV) during pregnancy. OBJECTIVES To study whether pregnancy results in higher(More)
INTRODUCTION In apical periodontitis, there is an intense inflammatory response to endodontopathogenic bacteria, an essential component of the pathogenic microbiota. The inflammation can be aggravated by herpesviruses acting as nonessential pathogens in periapical lesions. This study aimed to determine the levels of tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) and(More)
BACKGROUND It is suggested that immunosuppression due to transplantation might be a risk for human polyomavirus KI (KIPyV) and WU (WUPyV) infection. Most of the publications report data about stem cell transplant patients, little is known about these virus infections in renal transplant patients. OBJECTIVES To study the presence of KIPyV and WUPyV in(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the frequency of human herpesvirus 6A (HHV-6A) and human herpesvirus 6B (HHV-6B) infection during pregnancy. 100-100 blood samples were collected from pregnant and non-pregnant women, then nucleic acid was isolated from both plasma and leukocytes fraction. Nested and real-time PCR were used to detect and(More)
