BACKGROUND Parvovirus B19 (B19) is a common contaminant, especially in coagulation factors. Because of B19 transmission by pooled plasma, solvent/detergent treated in 1999, some fractionators initiated minipool nucleic acid testing (NAT) to limit the B19 load in manufacturing pools. In this study, the extent of B19 DNA contamination in commercial Factor(More)
A long RT-PCR (LRP) protocol was developed recently for robust amplification of a near full-length HCV genomic sequence from clinical samples, followed by efficient cloning [Fan, X., Xu, Y., Di Biceglie, A.M., 2006. Efficient amplification and cloning of near full-length hepatitis C virus genome from clinical samples. Biochem. Biophys. Res. Commun. 346,(More)
Hepatitis E virus (HEV) infection is sporadic in the Guangzhou city southern China. However, the evaluation of antibodies to HEV during consecutive time periods after infection has not been reported. We utilized enzyme immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to detect IgM and IgG anti-HEV in consecutive serum specimens from patients with acute hepatitis E and compared(More)
Quasispecies is a remarkable characteristic of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and has profound roles in HCV biology and clinical practice. The understanding of HCV quasispecies behavior, in particular in acute HCV infection, is valuable for vaccine development and therapeutic interference. However, acute HCV infection is seldom encountered in clinic practice due(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop an HPLC method for determination of loganin in Pterocephalus hookeri. METHOD The analysis was performed on a Welchrom C18 column (4.6 mm x 250 mm, 5 microm) with acetonitrile-water (12:88) as the the mobile phase at a flow rate of 1 mL x min(-1) and the detection wavelength was 240 nm. RESULT The peak areas and injection amounts of(More)
This paper represents a novel memristor based chaotic circuit, which is obtained by replacing the Chua's diode with a flux-controlled active memristor in a hyperchaotic circuit. Some characteristics of this proposed system are analyzed in detail. Analysis results show that the memristor circuit has an equilibrium set and the special phenomenon of transient(More)
