During 12 years of surveillance in Belgium, dengue virus (DENV) infection was diagnosed in 676 of 7771 (8.7%) returning travellers by the use of ELISA, RT-PCR, and/or antigen detection. Men and women were equally infected. The mean age of the patients was 36.78 years (range, 3-77 years). Most of the infections occurred after a stay in Asia (55.9%), followed(More)
In vivo bioluminescence imaging (BLI) is a promising technique for non-invasive tumour imaging. d-luciferin can be administrated intraperitonealy or intravenously. This will influence its availability and, therefore, the bioluminescent signal. The aim of this study is to compare the repeatability of BLI measurement after IV versus IP administration of(More)
PURPOSE Microscopy is the diagnostic reference standard for the detection of parasites, but it is labor-intensive and requires experience. Rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) can provide an alternative to microscopy. METHODS RDTs from four different manufacturers were compared to enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), microscopy and/or parasite-specific(More)
BACKGROUND Cell transplantation is likely to become an important therapeutic tool for the treatment of various traumatic and ischemic injuries to the central nervous system (CNS). However, in many pre-clinical cell therapy studies, reporter gene-assisted imaging of cellular implants in the CNS and potential reporter gene and/or cell-based immunogenicity,(More)
AIM Injuries of the lower extremity tend to be associated with jump-landing movements. This review provides an overview of the kinematic variables and malalignments during jump-landing, which could be attributed to overuse or acute injury occurrence. METHODS We searched ISI Web of Knowledge, SPORTDiscus, PubMed, EMBASE and SCOPUS for all studies,(More)
Songbirds are well known for their ability to learn their vocalizations by imitating conspecific adults. This uncommon skill has led to many studies examining the behavioral and neurobiological processes involved in vocal learning. Canaries display a variable, seasonally dependent, vocal behavior throughout their lives. This trait makes this bird species(More)
