This investigation presents the results of Hp and Tf subtyping of sera from 307 Australian whites by means of isoelectric focusing. Five Hp alleles were detected, these being Hp1F = 0.168, Hp1S = 0.235, Hp2FF = 0.003, Hp2FS = 0.561 and Hp2SS = 0.033. In the Tf system six alleles were found, TfC1 = 0.761, TfC2 = 0.176, TfC3 = 0.054, TfC6 = 0.002, TfB = 0.006(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate risk factors for hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection in Sydney blood donors. DESIGN Blood donors confirmed to be positive for HCV antibodies were compared with blood donors with a positive result of a screening assay, but whose HCV antibody status had not been confirmed. A questionnaire on sexual, parenteral and other potential risk(More)
Horse eosinophil function has been studied in vitro by means of phase contrast cinemicrophotography. Locomotion of horse eosinophils was inhibited by serum factors reacting with glass surfaces. Under appropriate conditions which eliminated this inhibitory effect, eosinophils moved about and ingested some particles as rapidly as did neutrophils. Eosinophils(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibodies in the Sydney blood donor population. DESIGN All blood donations collected from Red Cross blood donors in Sydney from February 1990 until April 1991 were tested for HCV antibodies. For those samples found reactive in an anti-HCV screening test, a confirmatory test was carried out(More)
