Hepatitis C virus epitope-specific neutralizing antibodies in Igs prepared from human plasma
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 mechanismExpand

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 bloodExpand

Neutralizing antibodies to hepatitis C virus (HCV) in immune globulins derived from anti-HCV-positive plasma.
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 chronicallyExpand

Measles-virus-neutralizing antibodies in intravenous immunoglobulins.
Measles infection induces lifelong immunity; however, wild-type infection stimulates higher levels of measles-virus-neutralizing antibodies (mnAbs) than does vaccination. Because the proportion ofExpand

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 [1] noted that even a slightExpand

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 preparedExpand

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 bloodExpand

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 failedExpand

Sensitivity and reproducibility of HCV quantitation in chimpanzee sera using TaqMan real-time PCR assay.
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 andExpand
