A rapid enzyme immunoassay (EIA) membrane test, the Directigen respiratory syncytial virus (Becton Dickinson), was compared with cell culture, an indirect immunofluorescence (IF) test, the Monofluokit respiratory syncytial virus (Diagnostics Pasteur), and a conventional enzyme immunoassay antigen test, the Abbott respiratory syncytial virus enzyme(More)
Recent developments in sequencing technologies led to the discovery of a novel form of genomic instability, termed chromothripsis. This catastrophic genomic event, involved in tumorigenesis, is characterized by tens to hundreds of simultaneously acquired locally clustered rearrangements on one chromosome. We hypothesized that leukemias developing in(More)
