Adenoviruses are among the many pathogens and opportunistic agents that cause serious infection in the congenitally immunocompromised, in patients undergoing immunosuppressive treatment for organ andExpand
Antigenic characterization of respiratory syncytial virus strains with monoclonal antibodies.
To study the antigenic characteristics of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), we developed and evaluated monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to three strains of RSV: 11 to Long, 4 to 18537, and 9 to A2. SixExpand
Virus isolation and quantitation
Publisher Summary This chapter outlines the two most commonly used methods of virus isolation—namely, tissue cultures and embryonated eggs. The chapter describes the methodology involved for theExpand
Detection of adenovirus in clinical specimens by polymerase chain reaction and liquid-phase hybridization quantitated by time-resolved fluorometry.
In addition to tests for the group-specific hexon antigen of adenoviruses, adenoviruses can be detected in clinical specimens by hybridization assays utilizing the widely shared base sequences of theExpand
[Percutaneous vertebroplasty].
PURPOSE To describe the procedure of percutaneous vertebroplasty and to present our first clinical results of patients treated for benign or malignant painful vertebral body disease. MATERIAL ANDExpand
Adenoviruses from Human Immunodeficiency Virus-Infected Individuals, Including Two Strains That Represent New Candidate Serotypes Ad50 and Ad51 of Species B1 and D, Respectively
ABSTRACT Adenovirus (Ad) isolates from a large number of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals were compared serologically and genetically with Ad isolates from immunocompetentExpand
MRI and CT in the differential diagnosis of pleural disease.
STUDY OBJECTIVE To explore the role of MRI in the differential diagnosis of pleural disease. PATIENTS Forty-two patients with pleural disease were included. METHOD Retrospective study. AllExpand
Adenoviruses from patients with AIDS: a plethora of serotypes and a description of five new serotypes of subgenus D (types 43-47).
We analyzed 67 adenovirus isolates from 48 patients with AIDS. The isolates included 5 of subgenus A (all Ad31), 23 of subgenus B, 4 of subgenus C (all Ad5), and 35 of subgenus D. The subgenus A andExpand
Respiratory viruses and mycoplasma as cofactors for epidemic group A meningococcal meningitis.
To investigate the role of coincident respiratory viral and mycoplasmal agents in the pathogenesis of meningococcal meningitis, we performed a matched case-control study of 62 patients with group AExpand
Neutralization of respiratory syncytial virus by individual and mixtures of F and G protein monoclonal antibodies.
We identified several types of neutralization effected by F and G protein monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) reacted individually or as mixtures against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). NeutralizingExpand
