WHO recommends the inclusion of PCVs in childhood vaccination programs world-wide. Many countries including the Russian Federation are currently planning the inclusion of PCVs in their National Immunization Programs and, therefore, data on the pneumococcal serotype distribution is important to estimate the potential disease impact. Here we review eight(More)
INTRODUCTION The UGT1A1*28 (rs8175347) polymorphism is associated with hyperbilirubinemia. The presence of 6 TA-repeats in the UGT1A1 gene promoter region corresponds to normal UGT1TA1 activity. A detection of 7 TA-repeats in hetero- or homozygous individuals [(TA)6/(TA)7 and (TA)7/(TA)7] is associated with lower UGT1TA1 activity, which may eventually(More)
AIM To perform advanced antigenic characterization of meningococci belonging to serogroups A and B and circulating in Moscow according to modern nomenclature of Neisseria meningitidis strains. MATERIALS AND METHODS Method of typing of "VR" fragment of FetA protein together with methods of genetic subtyping and multilocus sequence typing was used. (More)
With the aim to determine specific genetic characteristics of the population of Moscow region, we determined allele frequencies of 48 polymorphic loci (SNP) associated with the increased risk of ischemic stroke development. The genotype frequency distribution for all the SNPs corresponds to Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium. Comparison of the allele frequencies(More)
The technique to detect all possible variants of mutations in 12, 13 and 15 codons of gene KRAS was developed on the basis of the pyrosequencing technology. The analytical characteristics of the developed technique were identified. The limit of detection for mutations G34T, G35A and G38A detected on the cloned control samples consisted 3%. The limit of(More)
46 Haemophilus influenzae strains of serotype b, isolated on the territory of Moscow and compared with foreign strains, were characterized by the method of multilocus sequencing-typing. Among the strains circulating in Moscow 10 variants of sequence-types were observed; of these, only one variant (CT-6) had been described earlier. The analysis of the data(More)
Results of microbiological monitoring for serogroup A Neisseria meningitidis circulated in Moscow from 2002 to 2006 are presented. Using multilocus sequence-typing, molecular and epidemiologic characteristics of 32 cultures isolated from cerebro-spinal fluid of patients with generalized forms of meningococcal infection. Typed isolates belonged to 4 sequence(More)
Published data on the effect of transporter propeins of the ABC family in the features of drug pharmacokinetics in the human organism are reviewed. Clinical significance of mononucleotide polymorphisms in ABCB1 and ABCG2 genes is analyzed. A set of genetic tests based on pyrosequencing for determing the allele state in rs1128503 (1236 T > C), rs2032582(More)
AIM Development and application of real-time PCR (RT-PCR) procedure for determination of Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes. MATERIALS AND METHODS S. pneumoniae cps-locus wzx, wzy, wzz, wcwV and galU genes were chosen as PCR targets to select serotype-specific oligonucleotide primers and fluorescent labeled probes. 89 samples of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)(More)
Haemophilius influenzae, type b (Hib) bacteria, were genotyped by multilocus sequence typing (MLST) using 5 loci (adk, fucK, mdh, pgi, recA). 42 Moscow Hib strains (including 38 isolates form cerebrospinal fluid of children, who had purulent meningitis in 1999-2001, and 4 strains isolated from healthy carriers of Hib), as well as 2 strains from(More)
