Genetic variation between geographically and temporally distinct isolates of dengue-1 (DEN-1) and dengue-4 (DEN-4) viruses was investigated. The nucleotide sequences of a fragment of the envelope protein gene encoding amino acids 28 to 87 of 35 DEN-1 isolates and 28 DEN-4 isolates were determined. Maximum nucleotide sequence variation was 6.9% and 4.9% for(More)
Cyclosporin A (CsA) is a substrate for cytochrome P450 3A and the efflux transporter P-glycoprotein (P-gp; ABCB1), both abundantly expressed in the kidney. In a long-term follow-up of a cohort of patients who had received kidney transplants between the years 1990 and 2005, we retrospectively investigated the effect of CYP3A4, CYP3A5, and ABCB1 polymorphisms(More)
Dengue (DEN) and yellow fever (YF) viruses are responsible for human diseases with symptoms ranging from mild fever to hepatitis and/or hemorrhages. Whereas DEN virus typically induces only limited foci of necrosis in the liver, YF virus infection is characterized by devastating lesions. In a human hepatoma cell line (HepG2), the kinetics of DEN and YF(More)
Egg belongs to the list of ingredients that must be labeled because of its frequent involvement in food allergies especially in childhood. Several thermal processes are commonly applied to egg and it is known that some egg-allergic people can tolerate well-cooked egg. Food allergens are characterized by their ability to elicit IgE antibodies (sensitization)(More)
Regulatory agencies have enforced allergen labelling rules for food ingredients on pre-packed food. HACCP procedures driven on by food manufacturers reveals that possible cross-contaminations of their products cannot be absolutely discarded or checked. As a result and because allergen absence cannot be accurately warranted in most food industry, numerous(More)
