The severity of disease caused by influenza A infection depends not only on biological characteristics of the virus but also on the number of viral particles than penetrate the body. T- and B-lymphocytes as well as monocytes (macrophages) play a key role in the development of cell-based and humoral immunity as well as influenza virus elimination from the(More)
Cystatin, the protein inhibitor of cysteine proteinases from chicken egg white was purified by a new method. The two major forms with pI 6.5 (Peak I) and 5.6 (Peak II) were separated. Molecular masses of both forms are approx. 12700 Da as determined by gel chromatography; Form A from Peak I has a molecular mass of 12191 Da as calculated from its amino-acid(More)

The materials (nasal swabs and autopsies) were collected in different regions Russia in the period from 20 July to 30(More)
A novel microfluidic paper-based analytical device (μPAD) utilizing a nitrocellulose (NC) membrane to detect IgG antibodies through a colorimetric analysis is described. The μPAD was constructed using layered polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSA). The biotin labeled Goat Anti-Mouse IgG antibody was spotted and dried on the(More)
