Comparison of two DNA targets for the diagnosis of Toxoplasmosis by real-time PCR using fluorescence resonance energy transfer hybridization probes
BackgroundToxoplasmosis is an infectious disease caused by the parasitic protozoan Toxoplasma gondii. It is endemic worldwide and, depending on the geographic location, 15 to 85% of the humanExpand

Bacterial, viral and parasitic enteric pathogens associated with acute diarrhea in hospitalized children from northern Jordan.
To determine the etiology of acute diarrhea in Jordanian children under 5 years of age, we examined stool samples from 265 children admitted to the pediatric ward at Princess Rahma Hospital forExpand

Early detection of Toxoplasma infection by molecular monitoring of Toxoplasma gondii in peripheral blood samples after allogeneic stem cell transplantation.
BACKGROUND Isolated case reports have shown that recipients of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplants (HSCTs) who develop toxoplasmosis may have circulating Toxoplasma gondii DNA inExpand

Toxoplasmosis after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
Forty-one cases of toxoplasmosis were diagnosed in 15 European transplantation centers in patients who had undergone allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) from 1994 through 1998.Expand

Microsatellite polymorphism in the promoter sequence of the elongation factor 3 gene of Candida albicans as the basis for a typing system.
The polymorphism of a TTC/TTTC microsatellite in the promoter sequence of the elongation factor 3 gene of Candida albicans was investigated by PCR. One primer was fluorescein labeled, and PCR signalsExpand

Microsatellite Markers for Typing Aspergillus fumigatus Isolates
ABSTRACT The use of microsatellites as highly polymorphic DNA markers for the typing of isolates of Aspergillus fumigatus was investigated. Four CA repeats were selected by screening an A. fumigatusExpand

Epidemiological trends in invasive aspergillosis in France: the SAIF network (2005-2007).
A prospective (2005-2007) hospital-based multicentre surveillance of EORTC/MSG-proven or probable invasive aspergillosis (IA) cases whatever the underlying diseases was implemented in 12 FrenchExpand

Aspergillus PCR: One Step Closer to Standardization
ABSTRACT PCR has been used as an aid in the diagnosis of invasive aspergillosis for almost 2 decades. A lack of standardization has limited both its acceptance as a diagnostic tool and multicenterExpand
