Noroviruses (formerly Norwalk-like viruses) are a major cause of acute gastroenteritis worldwide and are associated with a significant number of nosocomial and food-borne outbreaks. In this study we show that the human secretor FUT2 gene, which codes for an alpha(1,2)-fucosyltransferase synthesizing the H-type 1 antigen in saliva and mucosa, is associated(More)
The interrelationships between reported complaints, clinical status, mechanical performance and EMG pattern of the shoulder flexors and the knee extensors, respectively, during maximum dynamic contractions were investigated. A group of 97 randomly selected women employed in the home care service participated. Those who reported complaints had more clinical(More)
BACKGROUND Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing bacteria are an escalating problem threatening health. Devastating consequences can result in neonatal intensive care units (NICU) due to these bacteria. The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of once-a-week screening (July 2010 to September 2012) versus screening on demand (April(More)
Anti-HCV prevalence in treated hemophiliacs, their heterosexual partners, intravenous drug addicts and homosexual men was studied. In hemophiliacs and many of the intravenous drug addicts, greater than or equal to 2 sera drawn 1-18 or 1-17 years apart were available. Anti-HCV testing was performed by ELISA (Ortho). Among patients with severe and moderate(More)
Human immunoglobulin M (IgM) rheumatoid factors (RFs) show primary direct enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) reactivity with Fab rather than Fc fragments of monoclonal antibody (mAb) II-481 directed against the Fc3'-binding site of herpes simplex virus glycoprotein gE. This preferential anti-Fab specificity suggests that RFs react with(More)
Today in most vehicles in battle, a camera system is used to manually lock a target and maintaining visual of the target as the vehicle is moving. In order to simplify this, this thesis investigates the approach to semi-automate the process by first manually locking the target and then let the camera approximate the trajectory of the enemy vehicle. In this(More)
The antibiotic consumption in Sweden was evaluated during the period 1975 to 1987. Consumption was measured in terms of defined daily doses (DDDs), that is, the normally prescribed daily adult doses. During the study period the total consumption varied between 49 and 51 million DDD, indicating a considerable over-use of antibiotics in Sweden. In the various(More)
