In Lithuania, 171-645 serologically confirmed cases of tick-borne encephalitis occurred annually [Mickiene et al. (2001): Eur J Clin Microbiol Infect Dis 20:886-888] in 1993-1999, and the tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) seroprevalence in the general population was found previously to be 3.0% [Juceviciene et al. (2002): J Clin Virol 25:23-27]. To assess(More)
Approximately 20 cases of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) occur annually in Finland. The known endemic areas are situated mainly in the archipelago and coastal regions of Finland, with highest incidence in Aland islands. Ixodes ricinus panels collected in 1996-1997 from two endemic areas were screened for the presence of RNA. Two distinct RT-PCR methods were(More)
In order to obtain information about the distribution of tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) in Lithuania, sera of domestic animals were screened for TBEV antibodies by haemagglutination inhibition test. Samples were collected in 2001 from 423 cows, 561 goats and 118 sheep during a prophylactic examination or vaccination by a local veterinary specialist.(More)
Acute tick-borne encephalitis is diagnosed by detection of IgM antibodies to tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) (genus Flavivirus) in patient serum. TBEV membrane (M) and envelope (E) proteins have previously been shown to form virus-like particles when expressed in mammalian cells. We expressed the prM/M and E proteins in insect cells with a recombinant(More)
Recently, HPC in the Cloud has emerged as a new paradigm in the field of parallel computing. Most of cloud systems deploy virtual machines for provisioning resources. However, in a virtual machine environment, there is still no mature method to analyze performance of MPI parallel programs. In this paper, we propose a series of innovative methods for(More)
