We studied microvascular injury after myocardial cryothermia in rats using intravital fluorescence microscopic techniques. Cryolesions were induced to the right ventricle by freezing with -160 degrees C (probe diameter: 5 mm) for a total of 5 min. Fluorescence microscopy was performed at 15, 30, 60, 90, and 120 min as well as at 3 and 7 days after(More)
The discussion on the development of public health affairs was invigorated anew by the report on public health in Germany of Leopoldina/Acatech/Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities of the year 2015. The report urges strengthening of public health and global health in Germany and addresses explicitly the Public Health Service (PHS). This(More)
The diagnosis of viral myocarditis remains difficult and generally depends on clinical and histologic criteria. Viral cultures and serology are often unrewarding with low yields. The purpose of this study was to analyze the usefulness of PCR in the rapid diagnosis of myocarditis in children. PCR was used to analyze 120 myocardial tissue samples from 60(More)
Introduction In Germany vaccination recommendations are revised annually and published by the Standing Committee on Vaccination at the Robert Koch Institute (STIKO).

The EHEC O104:H4 outbreak 2011 in Germany provided numerous insights into the recognition and control of such epidemic situations. Food-borne outbreaks and their related dynamics may lead to a critical burden of disease and an eventual capacity overload of the medical care system. Possible difficulties in the microbiological diagnostics of new or(More)

There is also a need for targeting certain -hygiene standards and expert advice concerning their application, especially in institutions where medical interventions provide an increased risk for patients, staff and(More)
The aim of this study was to assess multiplex PCR analysis in detecting causative viruses in children with febrile seizures. The study was a retrospective analysis comparing data from a pre-multiplex era (2009) with a period after the introduction of routine respiratory multiplex analysis (2010–2013) in children with febrile seizures. We included 200(More)
