Chromosome 7p alterations have been implicated in the development of Wilms' tumour (WT) by previous studies of tumour cytogenetics, and by our analysis of a constitutional translocation (t(1;7)(q42;p15)) in a child with WT and radial aplasia. We therefore used polymorphic microsatellite markers on 7p for a loss of heterozygosity (LOH) study, and found LOH(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The role of genotype and viremia were retrospectively evaluated on sustained virological response (SVR) rates in routine clinical practice. METHODOLOGY From 1907 patients with chronic hepatitis C proposed for treatment, we analysed 1380 (1124 naive and 256 treatment-experienced) with complete follow-up. Genotype and HCV RNA quantification(More)
Sequencing of the left variable region of the L60V Vero cell-adapted strain of African swine fever virus (ASFV) showed the presence of three genes belonging to multigene family 110 (MGF110) and of a fourth unrelated gene. This gene was separated from the MGF110 genes by a region rich in direct repeats. The first MGF110 gene, V1L, with 104 codons, was only(More)
