The nucleoprotein (NP) genes of influenza viruses were sequenced from a variety of virus isolates derived from marine mammals: whales from the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, seal and gull from the Western Atlantic, and a tern from the Caspian Sea. In comparison to published NP sequences, we found pairs of NPs derived from avian and marine mammal isolates to(More)
Sera of 152 healthy blood donors and 43 infants 9 to 12 months of age were tested for serum antibodies to TSST-1 and staphylococcal enterotoxins A, B and C by a microtiter ELISA assay. Only 50% of the adult population had detectable antibody-titers to enterotoxin A, whereas 80% to enterotoxin C and 90% to enterotoxin B and TSST-1, which is very similar to(More)
BACKGROUND The presence of a bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) might be associated with a progressive dilatation of the aortic root and ascending aorta. However, involvement of the aortic arch and descending aorta has not yet been elucidated. PATIENTS AND METHODS Magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) was used to assess the diameter of the ascending aorta, aortic(More)
Bei 4 Patientinnen mit intermittierender Porphyrie fand sich im akuten Schub mit Hypertonie und Tachykardie eine erhöhte Urinexkretion von Brenzkatechinaminen und — wesentlich geringer ausgeprägt — von Vanillinmandelsäure. Mitβ-Receptorenblockern konnten Pulsfrequenz und Blutdruck systolisch und diastolisch deutlich gesenkt werden. Die(More)
1. Bei Kaninchen wurde der Abfall der Aktivitäten im Serum nach intravenöser Applikation von 5 DPN-abhängigen Enzymen untersucht. Folgende Fermente wurden injiziert: Äpfelsäuredehydrogenase, Milchsäuredehydrogenase, Alkoholdehydrogenase, Glutaminsäuredehydrogenase und α-Glycerophosphatdehydrogenase. 2. Nach Einstellung eines Abflußgleichgewichtes folgte der(More)
BACKGROUND Pacemaker diagnostic counters are used to guide device programming and patient management. However, these data are susceptible to inappropriate classification of events. The aim of this multicenter study was to evaluate pacemaker diagnostic data using stored intracardiac electrograms (EGMs). METHODS The study included 351 patients (191 males,(More)
Isolates from 100 monomicrobial Staphylococcus aureus infections were tested for the production of TSST-1 and the enterotoxins A, B and C, which were found to be synthesized as a single toxin in 34 strains, or in combination of two or more toxins in 26. Acute phase sera and one or two further serum samples from 60 patients with toxigenic (either(More)
