The focal distribution of tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV; Flaviviridae, Flavivirus) appears to depend mainly on cofeeding transmission between infected Ixodes ricinus L. nymphs and uninfected larvae. To better understand the role of cofeeding ticks in the transmission of TBEV, we investigated tick infestation of rodents and the influence of(More)

Currently 10,000-12,000 clinical cases are reported annually in approximately 30 TBE endemic countries. Since 1990 the epidemiology of TBE is characterized by a(More)

Nonspecific interstitial pneumonia has been linked to numerous etiologies including, most recently, haematologic malignancy. We present a 46-year-old woman with recent-onset rheumatologic illness who developed pulmonary symptoms as the presenting feature of biphenotypic acute leukaemia. Chest radiology demonstrated bilateral infiltrates, and lung biopsy(More)
While inguinal hernia is common in the primary care office, the differential diagnosis is extensive and includes infectious, inflammatory and neoplastic processes. Varicocele is another frequent, generally benign condition which occasionally reflects serious disease entities. Left-sided or bilateral varicoceles account for the overwhelming majority of(More)

Moreover, others have found no association at all ( 2 ). de Jonge et al. ( 3 ) concluded in Am J Gastroenterology (January 2010) that there is an overall increased CRC risk in patients with BE, as compared with the general(More)
Prolactins in glycosylated and nonglycosylated form were isolated from 218 second- and third-trimester amniotic fluid samples by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, electrotransferred to nitrocellulose paper, and probed with anti-human prolactin serum and protein A labeled with iodine 125. The glycosylated and nonglycosylated(More)
