Different seroprevalence and molecular epidemiology patterns of hepatitis C virus infection in Italy
Age‐specific prevalence data and molecular characterization of the virus suggest that two transmission patterns co‐exist in Italy: one characterized by sub type 1b and 2c infections, mainly in adults older than 60 years, and the other by subtype 3 and 4 infections, mostly in the 31–60 year age group, and consistent with intravenous drug use and immigration.

MF59®-Adjuvanted H5N1 Vaccine Induces Immunologic Memory and Heterotypic Antibody Responses in Non-Elderly and Elderly Adults
Both formulations of MF59-adjuvanted influenza H5N1 vaccine were well tolerated and the European Union requirement for licensure for pre-pandemic vaccines was met by the lower dose tested.
Previous hepatitis B virus infection is associated with worse disease stage and occult hepatitis B virus infection has low prevalence and pathogenicity in hepatitis C virus‐positive patients
It is suggested that previous HBV infection among anti‐HCV patients is associated with worse disease stage, and at least among patients with chronic hepatitis, it does not seem to affect the severity of disease.

Impaired Response to Influenza Vaccine Associated with Persistent Memory B Cell Depletion in Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma Patients Treated with Rituximab-Containing Regimens
NHL patients treated with rituximab-containing regimens have persisting perturbations of B cell compartments and Ig synthesis and may be at particular risk for infection, even in long-standing complete remission.
Sleep Apnea, Sleep Debt and Daytime Sleepiness Are Independently Associated with Road Accidents. A Cross-Sectional Study on Truck Drivers
When OSA, SD, EDS, rest breaks and naps are present, the risk of MVAs or NMAs in truck drivers is severely increased and taking a rest break or a nap appear to be protective against accidents.
