Furious and paralytic rabies differ in clinical manifestations and survival periods. The authors studied magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and cytokine and virus distribution in rabies-infected dogs of both clinical types. MRI examination of the brain and upper spinal cord was performed in two furious and two paralytic dogs during the early clinical stage.(More)
Noninvasive molecular tests of urine cells have been developed to monitor the activity of kidney diseases. We evaluate whether measurement of urinary messenger RNA (mRNA) levels of chemokine and growth factor genes could distinguish between diffuse proliferative lupus nephritis (class IV LN) and others and whether it is able to predict the response to(More)
Five methods for the RNA detection of rabies virus were directly compared in this study. These included conventional nucleic acid sequence-based amplification with electrochemiluminescence (NASBA-ECL) assay, reverse transcription (RT)-heminested (hn) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and TaqMan real-time RT-PCR using protocols as described previously. The(More)
Diagnosis of rabies relies on the fluorescent antibody test (FAT) from brain impression smears. The mouse brain inoculation test is used to confirm FAT but requires weeks until the result is known. TaqMan real-time PCR has been described for rabies viral RNA detection; however, this is burdened by primer and probe binding site mismatches. The purpose of(More)
