Human papillomaviruses are commonly found in normal skin of immunocompetent hosts.
We have previously demonstrated, by the combined application of two degenerate polymerase chain reaction primer sets, the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA in 91% of cutaneous squamous cellExpand

Detection of HPV-DNA in semen, urine and urethral samples by dot blot and PCR.
Papillomavirus infection in women is associated with the development of carcinoma or squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL). Limited information is available for men. Seventy asymptomatic maleExpand

A highly sensitive and fast non-radioactive method for the detection of polymerase chain reaction products from Salmonella serovars, such as Salmonella typhi, in blood specimens.
A polymerase chain reaction based test was developed for the detection of Salmonella spp. in blood specimens. After amplification of a 389 bp-polymerase chain reaction product from the invA gene, aExpand

Detection of Human Papillomavirus DNA and p53 Gene Mutations in Esophageal Cancer Samples and Adjacent Normal Mucosa
Background/Aim: There is evidence of a possible etiological role of human papillomaviruses (HPVs) in the development of esophageal tumors. Loss of function of the wild-type p53 tumor suppressor geneExpand

Development of a PCR microplate-capture hybridization method for simple, fast and sensitive detection of Salmonella serovars in food.
The authors have developed an easy and rapid detection and identification system for Salmonella spp. in food. The gene inv A was selected as the target sequence. Oligonucleotides derived fromExpand

Characterization of a putative new HPV genomic sequence from a cervical lesion using L1 consensus primers and restriction fragment length polymorphism.
Various methods have been proposed for HPV detection and typing. Prevalence and distribution among types have varied depending upon the methods used and the populations studied. We have applied theExpand

Vertical transmission of hepatitis C virus in low-risk pregnant women
To assess the prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in pregnant women and the rate of vertical transmission in infected mothers belonging to a low-risk group, 1,388 women were tested forExpand

PCR-RFLP-Detected Human Papilloma Virus Infection in a Group of Senegalese Women Attending an STD Clinic and Identification of a New HPV-68 Subtype
Cancer of the cervix is the most common malignant tumor among women in Africa and, in particular, Senegal. Studies of the prevalence of human papilloma virus (HPV) infection in Africa have mainlyExpand

Development and evaluation of a PCR-microplate capture hybridization method for direct detection of verotoxigenic Escherichia coli strains in artificially contaminated food samples.
For the purpose of detecting, directly in food, verotoxigenic Escherichia coli, a microplate hybridization method for the detection of PCR products from the SLT I and SLT II genes, was developed andExpand

Sequence analysis of a PCR product from the iap gene of Listeria monocytogenes serovars most frequently isolated from food.
After amplification and purification, PCR products from the iap gene of different Listeria monocytogenes serovars were subjected to sequencing to define the intraspecific differences within the geneExpand
