Equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) infections cause significant economic losses for equine industries worldwide as a result of abortion, respiratory illness, and neurologic disease in all breeds of horses. The occurrence of abortions caused by EHV-1 has repeatedly been confirmed in Poland, but neurological manifestations of the infection have not been described(More)
Viruses can reorganize the cytoskeleton and restructure the host cell transport machinery. During infection viruses use different cellular cues and signals to enlist the cytoskeleton for their mission. However, each virus specifically affects the cytoskeleton structure. Thus, the aim of our study was to investigate the cytoskeletal changes in homologous(More)
Colonization of the gastrointestinal tract with multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria is a consequence of gut dysbiosis. We describe the successful utilization of fecal microbiota transplantation to inhibit Klebsiella pneumoniae MBL+ and Escherichia coli ESBL+ gut colonization in the immunocompromised host as a novel tool in the battle against MDR(More)
Equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1) causes respiratory disease, abortion and neurological disorders in horses. In the present study, we investigated reorganization of the cytoskeleton in neurons infected with two EHV-1 strains: Jan-E (wild-type strain) and Rac-H (attenuated strain). The studies were performed on primary murine neurons, which are an excellent(More)
Viral infections are still a serious diagnostic and therapeutic problem in patients undergoing alternative donor transplants. β-Herpesviruses (especially human herpesvirus type 5, 6 and 7) are recognized pathogens in this group of patients and may cause central nervous system disease. Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a very rare complication among stem cell(More)
Equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1) is one of the major viral agents causing diseases in horses common worldwide. A variety of techniques, including PCR, have been used to diagnose EHV-1 infections. In this paper, an attempt of real-time PCR has been described, which uses specific fluorochrome-labeled TaqMan probes for detection of viral DNA. This method does(More)
Infections with human adenoviruses are common worldwide and cause a wide range of signs and symptoms. Nowadays in current diagnostics procedures older virological methods, such virus isolation in a cell cultures, are replaced with molecular biology tests. The aim of the study was development of real-time PCR assay for detection of human adenoviruses. DNA(More)
Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) is a beta-herpesvirus widely spread within a population and has been recognized as a potential significant pathogen in immunocompromised patients. Different clinical manifestations have been described including fever, skin rash, pneumonia, graft rejection and encephalitis. The goal of the study was development of real-time PCR(More)
Human herpesvirus 7 (HHV-7) is a beta-herpesvirus widely spread within a population and has been recognized as a potential pathogen in immunocompromised hosts. The goal of the study was development of real-time PCR assay for detection of human herpesvirus 7 DNA in clinical samples, using primers targeting a conserved region of the viral DNA major capside(More)
