Hepatitis C virus epitope-specific neutralizing antibodies in Igs prepared from human plasma
- Pei Zhang, C. G. Wu, +4 authors S. Feinstone
- Medicine, Biology
- Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences

Neutralizing antibodies directed against hepatitis C virus (HCV) are present in Igs made from anti-HCV-positive plasma. However, these HCV-specific Igs are largely ineffective in vivo. The mechanism… Expand
A linked donor-recipient study to evaluate parvovirus B19 transmission by blood component transfusion.
Parvovirus B19V infection can be a serious infection for hematology patients with underlying hemolysis or compromised erythropoiesis syndromes. Although case reports of B19V transmission by blood… Expand
Neutralizing antibodies to hepatitis C virus (HCV) in immune globulins derived from anti-HCV-positive plasma.
- M. Yu, B. Bartosch, +7 authors R. Purcell
- Biology, Medicine
- Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences…
- 18 May 2004
The role of humoral immunity in hepatitis C virus (HCV) infections is uncertain. Nevertheless, there is increasing evidence for neutralizing antibodies to HCV in the serum or plasma of chronically… Expand
Measles-virus-neutralizing antibodies in intravenous immunoglobulins.
- S. Audet, M. L. Virata-Theimer, +6 authors M. Yu
- The Journal of infectious diseases
- 15 September 2006
Measles infection induces lifelong immunity; however, wild-type infection stimulates higher levels of measles-virus-neutralizing antibodies (mnAbs) than does vaccination. Because the proportion of… Expand
The Application of Short-Term Feed Restriction to Broiler Chicken Production: A Review
Abstract The application of feed restriction in the production of meat-type (broiler) chickens is controversial. Commercial broilers are invariably fed ad libitum. Fisher  noted that even a slight… Expand
Partitioning of hepatitis C virus during Cohn‐Oncley fractionation of plasma
Because of concern about the safety of immune globulins with respect to transmission of hepatitis C, the partitioning of hepatitis C virus (HCV) during alcohol fractionation of a plasma pool prepared… Expand
Parvovirus B19 transmission by a high‐purity factor VIII concentrate
BACKGROUND: Parvovirus B19 (B19) is known to cause a variety of human diseases in susceptible individuals by close contact via the respiratory route or by transfusion of contaminated blood or blood… Expand
International collaborative study to evaluate candidate reference reagents to standardize haemagglutination testing for anti‐A and anti‐B in normal intravenous immunoglobulin products
Background and Objectives The aim of the study was to evaluate, in an international collaboration, three lyophilized intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) preparations for their suitability to… Expand
The effects of 50 Hz magnetic field exposure on dimethylbenz(alpha)anthracene induced thymic lymphoma/leukemia in mice.
Several epidemiological investigations have suggested an increased incidence of lymphoma, leukemia, and brain tumor in residents living near power transmission lines. However, some observers failed… Expand
Sensitivity and reproducibility of HCV quantitation in chimpanzee sera using TaqMan real-time PCR assay.

- Journal of virological methods
- 1 September 2002
The availability of molecular protocols for the detection and quantitation of very low numbers of hepatitis C virus (HCV) particles in biological samples is an issue of interest in both clinical and… Expand
