OBJECTIVE Our goal was to demonstrate the usefulness of echocardiography and cardiac Doppler echocardiography (echo-Doppler) in the diagnosis of endomyocardial fibrosis, an unusual restrictive cardiomyopathy in Argentina. METHODS Between 1980 and 1998, we studied 10 women (aged 27 to 58 years) with endomyocardial fibrosis confirmed by surgery and/or(More)
The avian follicular dendritic cell changes that occur in the germinal center of the Harderian gland during the course of the immune response were studied by electron microscopy and the immunoperoxidase method was employed for the detection of S-100 protein. The chickens were injected twice with Salmonella O Antigen into the nictitating membrane at 9-day(More)
A protein of 34kDa (Nx) was induced in vitro by the infection of fish cell cultures with the rhabdovirus agent of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia (VHS) of the trout. This protein only appeared as a major component in concentrated or intracellular labeled VHS virus but not in purified VHS or in the related infectious haematopoietic necrosis virus. That Nx(More)
At least 28 polypeptides have been identified in intracellular virus, with molecular weights ranging from 11,500 to 243,000 daltons. By treatment with Nonidet P-40 and 2-mercaptoethanol it is possible to obtain subviral particles that have lost some proteins and have a density in CsCl of 1.31 g/cm3 which is higher than that of the complete virus (1.23(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Multiplane transesophageal echocardiography provides countless tomographic planes through an angle of 180 degrees, thus overcoming the restriction encountered even with biplane transesophageal echocardiography. However, the incremental diagnostic value and clinical usefulness of this technique over biplane transesophageal(More)
In this paper the characterization of a canine-coronavirus (CCV) strain isolated in Spain is reported. The CCV cellular-infection cycle on A-72 cells was studied using electron-microscopy techniques. The isolate was found to have similar electrophoretic profile and antigenic properties to an American reference strain. Sera samples were obtained from several(More)
