The genotypes of human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) isolates from pediatric patients differs from those of infected adults in Australia. Genotypes were determined by PCR amplification of glycoprotein B (gB) sequences, with subsequent analysis by restriction fragment length polymorphism, single-stranded conformation polymorphism, heteroduplex mobility analysis and(More)
BACKGROUND Transplacental transmission of human cytomegalovirus (CMV) can result in congenital malformations, although details on the mechanisms of transmission and the location of CMV in infected placentae need to be described.METHODS. Placental tissue from term (third trimester) deliveries was screened for CMV infection by polymerase chain reaction (PCR),(More)
Congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections remain the leading viral cause of congenital malformations in the developed world. Despite advances in our knowledge, the epidemiology and natural history of congenital CMV infection are still poorly understood, particularly in Australia. Congenital CMV causes illness ranging from no clinical disease(More)
BACKGROUND Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) is the most common cause of viral intrauterine infection. In utero transmission can occur during primary maternal infection, reactivation or reinfection of seropositive mothers. OBJECTIVE To describe the aetiology and clinical features of infants diagnosed with congenital CMV and to document maternal factors that(More)
