Incorporation of Virazole into potato explant and meristem culture media results in a higher percentage of virus-free progeny plants from virus-infected explant and meristem donor plants than are produced in tissue cultures in the absence of Virazole. Viruses eliminated, singly and as complexes, include potato viruses X, Y, S and M. The need for sensitive(More)
Chronic hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is associated with lower prevalence of hyperlipidemia (HLP). However, occult HBV infection (OBI) in HLP patients has not yet been explored. OBI is defined as the presence of detectable HBV DNA in serum or liver tissue but undetectable HBV surface antigen in serum. In this study, 1,036 HLP patients and 1,134(More)
Patients with autosomal dominant vibratory urticaria have localized hives and systemic manifestations in response to dermal vibration, with coincident degranulation of mast cells and increased histamine levels in serum. We identified a previously unknown missense substitution in ADGRE2 (also known as EMR2), which was predicted to result in the replacement(More)
We wished to assess the clinical safety and pharmacokinetics of ascending doses of a synthetic oligodeoxynucleotide (LR-3280) administered after coronary angioplasty. Antisense oligodeoxynucleotides designed to hybridize with target messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) in a complementary fashion to inhibit the expression of corresponding protein also have the(More)
Although effective deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN-DBS) is reported in G2019S leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) parkinsonism, response to surgery in other LRRK2 mutations has not been previously reported. We present an affected individual from the Lincolnshire pedigree (Y1699C), on whom bilateral STN-DBS was performed to control(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish a more simple and sensitive technique for identification of hepatitis A virus (HAV). METHODS HAV vaccine strain H2M20-K and wild-type strain He34 were used to infect KMB17 deploid cells in 96-well tissue culture plates and in situ enzyme immunoassay was used to detect viral infection with specific HA monoclonal antibody, A(OD) value(More)
