Hepatitis delta virus (HDV) is a subviral agent of hepatitis B virus (HBV), and its life cycle is dependent on HBV. It is commonly accepted that HDV has eight distinct genotypes. In this study, the complete nucleotide sequences of HDV genomes isolated from nine Turkish patients were obtained by RT-PCR using two pairs of primers that cover the entire HDV(More)
PURPOSE this study was planned to evaluate the prevalence of HPV (excepting type 16) and HPV 16 by real-time PCR in colposcopy patients and to interprete the results with age, age of first sexual intercourse (FSI), parity and Pap smear results. METHODS one hundred and two colposcopy patients (50 and 52 of the patients were classified as colposcopy(More)
This study was done to understand the dynamics of rotavirus genotype distribution in Turkish children. Samples were collected from January 2006 through August 2011 from children at a hospital in Ankara. Rotavirus was detected in 28 % (241/889) of the samples. Genotype G9P[8] was predominant (28 %), followed by G1P[8] (16.3 %) and G2P[8] (15.9 %). G9 was(More)
OBJECTIVE Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common cause of viral intrauterine infections in the world. Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) and human papillomavirus (HPV) are the main agents of viral sexually transmitted diseases, which cause genital ulcers and genital warts, respectively. HPV infection has been linked to the majority of the(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotyping has a considerable effect on therapy. The aim was to determine the change in prevalence of HCV genotypes in Turkey during the last decade and to compare the performance of DNA sequencing of different targets in the HCV genome (NS5B, E1, and 5'UTR). MATERIALS AND METHODS Five hundred HCV RNA-positive(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of Herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 and type 2 DNA from the clinical samples sent to our routine laboratory, by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). A total of 328 samples collected from 306 female and 7 male patients who were admitted to different outpatient clinics were included in the study.(More)
