It is widely thought, but not yet explained, that there might be a pathogenetic link between the infection of hepatitis C virus (HCV) and the onset of B non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). We studied the prevalence of serum anti-HCV antibodies among 300 NHL comparing it with the prevalence among 600 age- and sex-matched non-neoplastic subjects as controls, 247(More)
We report a prospective study on infants born to hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) carrier mothers to estimate the incidence of perinatal transmission of HBV and HBV-associated delta agent in Northern Italy. The risk of infection to the infant was related to the presence of the HBe antigen-antibody system, HBV-specific DNA polymerase activity and antibody(More)
Screening of 12 965 pregnant women revealed a prevalence of HBsAg carriers of 3.5%. Of these 4.8% were positive for HBeAg, 92.1% for anti-HBe and 3.1% were HBeAg/anti-HBe negative. Babies born to HBeAg positive mothers were found to be at extremely high risk of acquiring HBV infection and of developing a chronic carrier state, while those born to anti-HBe(More)
Strain-specific circulating immunoglobulin G and/or M was detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and immunofluorescence test by using Formol-treated suspensions of Gardnerella vaginalis from 28 women with overt vaginitis but only three symptom-free subjects among 43 otherwise healthy women found to be colonized by G. vaginalis. Analogous but less(More)
A study of Chlamydia trachomatis was conducted in 5270 subjects seen at clinics of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery at La Sapienza University in Rome, the S. Anna Hospital in Turin, and the Provincial Maternity Hospital Institute in Milan. In these areas, C. trachomatis was present in 5.8% of the cases examined; in addition it was present with(More)
