Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) immediate-early messenger RNA (IEmRNA) in sequential blood samples from 32 pregnant women with primary infection and from 14 congenitally infected newborns was qualitatively investigated by nucleic acid sequence-based amplification. IEmRNA was detected in 100%, 75%, 36.3%, 22.2%, and 0% of samples collected 1, 2, 3, 4-6, and >6(More)
During the winter-spring season 2006-2007, 38 influenza virus strains were identified in patients admitted to hospital with an acute respiratory tract infection. Infections were diagnosed in parallel by direct fluorescent antibody (DFA) staining using type-specific monoclonal antibodies and real-time reverse transcription (RT)-PCR targeting the gene M (nt(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare genotypic and phenotypic HIV-1 drug resistance assays. METHODS Protease inhibitor (PI) susceptibility was phenotypically analysed in HIV-1 isolates and recombinant viruses expressing proteases from viral isolates. Two genotypic interpretation methods were carried out in parallel. RESULTS Entirely concordant resistance levels were(More)
OBJECTIVE A novel rapid reverse transcriptase (RT) recombinant HIV-1 drug-susceptibility assay was developed to evaluate resistance to RT inhibitors. MATERIAL AND METHODS HIV-1 RTs from five treatment-naive and 10 highly active antiretroviral therapy-experienced patients were evaluated. HIV-1 isolates recovered by culturing peripheral blood mononuclear(More)
We reported data concerning the Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) based metabolomic analysis of amniotic fluid (AF) samples obtained from pregnant women infected with Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV). These data support the publication "Primary HCMV Infection in Pregnancy from Classic Data towards Metabolomics: an Exploratory analysis" (C. Fattuoni,(More)
We report miscarriage following dengue virus (DENV)-3 infection in a pregnant woman returning from Bali to Italy in April 2016. On her arrival, the woman had fever, rash, asthenia and headache. DENV RNA was detected in plasma and urine samples collected the following day. Six days after symptom onset, she had a miscarriage. DENV RNA was detected in fetal(More)
