The optimal composition and antigen content of acellular pertussis vaccines is not known. Two vaccines with different quantities of pertussis toxoid (10 and 20 micrograms) and filamentous hemagglutinin (5 and 20 micrograms) and identical 69 kD protein (3 micrograms) and fimbriae 2 and 3 (5 micrograms) combined with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids were(More)
BACKGROUND Advisory committees have recommended the increased use of inactivated poliovirus vaccine (IPV) for children. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to assess the safety and immunogenicity of three schedules using IPV administered with diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and whole cell pertussis vaccines in a dual-chambered syringe. Children also(More)
In thalassemia erythrocyte cation permeability is increased, but the increment in ATPase-dependent cation pumps maintains normal concentrations of Ca++, Na+ and K+. In this study we investigated erythrocyte concentrations of Mg++ in heterozygous beta-thalassemia and in microcytic sideropenic anemia. Twenty-five healthy controls, 40 heterozygous(More)
We investigated the effects of vinyl chloride monomer exposure on the liver of 86 workers by measuring beta-glucuronidase, arylsulfatase A, adenosine deaminase, 5'-nucleotidase and routine liver function enzymes in the sera of the workers. In 21 of them, three or more of these parameters were raised, with a significant decrease in the level of blood(More)
BACKGROUND Pyoderma gangrenosum is a rare, ulcerative cutaneous condition that was first described by Brocq in 1916. This diagnosis is quite challenging as the histopathological findings are nonspecific. Pyoderma gangrenosum is usually associated with inflammatory bowel disease, leukemia, and hepatitis C. We describe a rare clinical case of a patient with(More)
Benign etiologies and primary thyroid cancers are the most common causes of incidental thyroid nodules. Clinically evident metastases to the thyroid gland are not common and account for 2%-3% of thyroid cancers, though the incidence of thyroid metastases reaches 24% in autopsy studies.1 The most common clinically detected thyroid metastases originate from(More)
BACKGROUND Prosthetic joint infection from Listeria monocytogenes is rare. We decided to shed light on this illness and review the reported cases to better understand its characteristics. PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a comprehensive review of the English literature using PubMed. We also included one case that we had managed. RESULTS We found 25(More)
