Recent studies have reported and provided nucleotide sequence data from divergent isolates of hepatitis E virus (HEV), including isolates from North America and Africa. Sera were investigated from 29 Chinese patients with a diagnosis of acute hepatitis and who were negative for hepatitis viruses A-E by serology (HEV was excluded by testing for IgG antibody(More)
The DØ experiment enjoyed a very successful data-collection run at the Fermilab Tevatron collider between 1992 and 1996. Since then, the detector has been upgraded to take advantage of improvements to the Tevatron and to enhance its physics capabilities. We describe the new elements of the detector, including the silicon microstrip tracker, central fiber(More)
The outcome for children with deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) is unknown. An understanding of morbidity and mortality of DVT/PE is crucial to the development of rational treatment protocols. The Canadian Childhood Thrombophilia Registry has followed 405 children aged 1 mo to 18 y with DVT/PE for a mean of 2.86 y (range, 2 wk to 6 y)(More)

Distinction of urothelial carcinoma in situ (CIS) from reactive atypia on the basis of morphology alone may be difficult in some cases. Because this distinction is therapeutically and prognostically critical, we attempted to determine if an immunohistochemical panel would help in this differential diagnosis. The immunoprofile of 21 cases of CIS and 25(More)
Fifty-seven patients receiving unrelated donor (UD) BMT were matched for disease and stage with 57 recipients of genotypically matched related donor (MRD) BMT. All UD recipients were matched serologically for A and B and by high resolution for DR and DQ antigens. All patients received CsA and 'short course' methotrexate with folinic acid. Unrelated donor(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop and test an HIV intervention targeting sex workers and madams in the brothels of Bombay. SUBJECTS AND METHODS In a controlled intervention trial, with measurements before and after the intervention, 334 sex workers and 20 madams were recruited from an intervention site, and 207 and 17, respectively, from a similar control site, both(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the relationship of immunoreactivity of cytokeratin 20 (CK20) and CD44 across the spectrum of urothelial neoplasia using the WHO/ISUP consensus classification. A total of 120 papillary urothelial pTa and pT1 tumors (8 papillomas, 8 neoplasms of low malignant potential, and 42 low-grade and 62 high-grade carcinomas) were(More)
School children form an important large target group which must be screened adequately for early detection of eye diseases and prevention of blindness. A total approach in a school eye health programme must include teacher orientation and health education of children in addition to screening for eye diseases. The ocular morbidity pattern in 5135 school(More)
