p = 0.001); there was no significant correlation between the age of each child at the time of the accident and the latent period before the onset of carcinoma. The aggressiveness of the tumor, evaluated on the basis of T stage, lymph node status, and lung metastases, did not correlate with age at the time of the first diagnosis or with the age at the time(More)
Russian Republic of Karelia is located at the Russian-Finnish border. It contains most of the historical Karelia land inhabited with autochthonous Karels and more recently migrated Russians. Although tuberculosis (TB) incidence in Karelia is decreasing, it remains high (45.8/100 000 in 2014) with the rate of multi-drug resistance (MDR) among newly diagnosed(More)
Extrapulmonary and, in particular, spinal tuberculosis (TB) constitutes a minor but significant part of the total TB incidence. In spite of this, almost no studies on the genetic diversity and drug resistance of Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from spinal TB patients have been published to date. Here, we report results of the first Russian and globally(More)
The goal of this work was to obtain genotypic characteristics of multidrug-resistant (MDR) strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (i.e., strains that are resistant at least to rifampicin and isoniazid) isolated from consumptives in Northwestern Russia in 2011–2012. Spoligotyping of 195 strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis revealed 14 spolingotypes belonging(More)
