Recent developments in molecular cytogenetics allow the detection of genomic rearrangements at an unprecedented level leading to discoveries of previously unknown chromosomal imbalances (zygotic and post-zygotic/mosaic). These can be accompanied by a different kind of pathological genome variations, i.e. chromosome instability (CIN) manifested as structural… (More)
In 2010, the Russian Federation (RF) registered palivizumab--innovative drug, based on monoclonal antibodies for passive immunization of seasonal respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection in children of disease severe progress risk group, which include primarily premature infants, children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia and hemodynamically significant… (More)
A total of 111 children suspected for herpesvirus infection were examined. In blood and urine samples the infectious activity of herpes simplex virus (HSV) and cytomegalovirus (CMV) was detected by the rapid culture method (RCM) and the presence of virus DNA--by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). HSV and/or CMV were detected by two laboratory methods in… (More)
The data on prophylaxis efficacy of the Palivizumab (synagis) against respiratory syncytial viral infection in premature children with bronchopulmonary dysplasia are shown in the article. No side-effects, good tolerance and decrease of the frequency of bronchopulmonary dysplasia relapses and other viral diseases in whole in such children were registered.
Thirty-three children aged 1 month to 3 years were examined within the case study. spELISA, immunoblot (IB), shell vial method (SVM) and PCR, were used for the detection of anti-CMV IgM and IgG, in the diagnosis of cytomegalovirus (CMV). Clinical signs of CMV infection (CMVI) were registered in 20 children (group 1); no CMVI specific signs were detected in… (More)
