Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a RNA virus that cannot be integrated with the host genome; it can, however, exert its oncogenetic potential indirectly by contributing to the modulator effects of the host immune system, probably through a capacity to elude the immune system. We have carried out a case controlled study on tumors correlated with the immune system(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS HCV is a RNA virus that cannot be integrated with the host genome; it can, however, exert its oncogenic potential indirectly by contributing to the modulatory effects of the host immune system, probably through a capacity to elude the immune system. We have carried out a case-controlled study on the different oncological pathologies which(More)
Serum samples from a total of 6979 dairy cattle from 55 herds in northern Italy (51 herds) and central Italy (4 herds), were examined by the serum neutralization test for the presence of antibody to bovine herpesvirus-1 (BHV-1). It was found that 84.31% of the farms selected in northern Italy and all the farms from central Italy had seropositive animals at(More)
Bovine herpesvirus 1 (BHV-1) isolates (Cooper-type strain 4975 and Oxford) were compared in neutralization tests with the bovine herpesvirus 4 (BHV-4) isolate (85/16 TV) and the herpesviruses of red deer (D2839/1) and goats (E/CH). Hyperimmune antiserum was prepared in rabbits against the plaque-selected viruses and endpoint and kinetic neutralization test(More)
Three strains of herpesvirus were recovered from cows with vulvovaginitis. The three isolates (85/BH 16TV, 85/BH 17TV, 85/BH 18TV), when compared by cross serum neutralization (SN) tests, were found to be antigenically identical. They were serologically distinct from infectious bovine rhinotracheitis (IBR) virus and Bovid herpesvirus 2 (BHV2), while they(More)
PURPOSE We report on a multicenter phase II trial of (90)yttrium-ibritumomab-tiuxetan ((90)YIT) as first-line stand-alone therapy for patients with follicular lymphoma (FL). PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty-nine patients with CD20(+) FL grade 1 to 3a in stages II, III, or IV, age 50 years old or older requiring therapy were enrolled. They received (90)YIT(More)
Three cytopathic rotavirus isolates were recovered from young rabbits affected by an enteric syndrome. The three isolates, when compared by cross serum-neutralization tests, were found to be of the same serotype. Cross neutralization occurred also between a representative of the rabbit isolates and one strain of bovine rotavirus.
Hematopoietic reconstitution after high-dose chemotherapy is usually achieved through DMSO-cryopreserved PBSC. DMSO-related neurotoxicity, including transient global amnaesia, cerebral infarction, migraine, seizures, encephalopathy and coma, has been described, mostly as anecdotal events. The heterogeneity of neurologic syndromes and the pleiotropic actions(More)
Frequent deletions of the distal region on the long arm of chromosome 6 have been reported in multiple human tumors including B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma (B-NHL), suggesting the presence of one or more tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) at this locus. Previously, we identified a region of minimal molecular deletion at 6q25-q27 (RMD-1) in B-NHL cases. To(More)
Three rotavirus strains of bovine, simian and porcine origin, respectively, were compared. The 3 viruses induced a classic rotavirul infection in newborn, conventionally reared calves. The cross neutralization tests revealed an antigenic identity of simian and porcine rotaviruses and a slight serologic correlation of these two viruses with the bovine(More)
