Infectious salmon anemia (ISA) is caused by a virus that probably belongs to the Orthomyxoviridae and was first recorded in Norway in 1984. The disease has since spread along the Norwegian coast and has later been found in Canada, Scotland, the Faroe Islands, Chile, and the USA. This study presents sequence variation of the hemagglutinin gene from 37 ISA(More)
The sequence of the region located between the S and M glycoprotein genes of the 79-1146 strain of feline infectious peritonitis virus (FIPV) is presented. The inter-structural gene region encodes 3 open reading frames (ORFs), termed ORFs 3a, 3b and 4, with nucleotide sequences conforming to the minimum conserved transcription signal upstream of each. An(More)
INTRODUCTION Outcomes research for speech language pathology (SLP) interventions for acute traumatic spinal cord injury (SSC) rehabilitation in the US is difficult because of the lack of a treatment classification system (taxonomy). OBJECTIVE To describe a taxonomy developed by speech language pathologists (SLPs) to examine the effects of SLP(More)
BACKGROUND Enteroviruses (EV) cause a broad spectrum of human diseases, of which aseptic meningitis is among the most common and most clinically vexing. While the clinical symptoms of meningitis caused by bacteria, fungi and viruses are similar, the diagnosis, therapy and outcome of disease caused by these agents vary greatly. In order to appropriately(More)
There is a lack of agreement as to the significance of agglutination test results in cholera, and recent epidemics of "classic" Vibrio comma and El Tor infections have provided an opportunity to compare this test with two other serological procedures recently introduced in cholera work. These are determination of the circulating antitoxin expressed as the(More)
The antibody response to Campylobacter jejuni/coli infection was investigated in 59 patients involved in two outbreaks of milk-borne infection and in sporadic infections in the community. Agglutinins and complement-fixing (CF) antibodies were detected in nearly all these patients. Agglutinins were present in 25% of normal sera at low titres (not greater(More)
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the agent of the global epidemic of the immune disease AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome). Therefore further investigations on the viral structure and molecular mechanisms are of particular importance in the search for medical therapies.
In the last decade, the field of far-field super-resolution fluorescence microscopy exploded with multiple schemes for sub-diffraction-limit optical microscopy, culminating in a 2008 Method of the Year designation by Nature Publishing Group. Three general categories now exist: structured illumination microscopy (SIM), localization methods (e.g. PALM,(More)
Antisera were prepared from strains of Campylobacter jejuni/coli isolated from patients in six outbreaks of enteritis. Bactericidal antibodies, and agglutinating antibodies to heat-labile and heat-stable antigens, were demonstrated. These reactions were used to type a number of strains isolated from patients in each outbreak, and to distinguish 'epidemic'(More)
