The use of saliva as a practical and feasible alternative to urine in large-scale screening for congenital cytomegalovirus infection increasesinclusion and detection rates

CONCLUSIONS: Saliva samples can be used in large-scale neonatal screening for CMV infection.

Authors: Appak Ö, Manyaslı M, Cengiz MM, Deliloğlu B, Karaoğlu Asrak H, Özlü C, Sayıner AA Abstract The screening for syphilis during pregnancy is important to prevent intrauterine transmission and complications. Prozone phenomenon may cause a false negative result in non-treponemal syphilis tests, which complicates an accurate diagnosis. In this case report a newborn syphilis case was presented to emphasize the importance of reverse algorithm in diagnosis and the prozone phenomenon which can cause problems in rapid plasma reagin (RPR) test. The 2920 g infant patient was born from a 24-year-old m...

We examined 9293 individuals from the Copenhagen General Population Study using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy measurements of total cholesterol, free- and esterified cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, and particle concentration. Fourteen subclasses of decreasing size and their lipid constituents were analysed: six subclasses were very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), one intermediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), three low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and four subclasses were high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Remnant lipoproteins were VLDL and IDL combined. Mean nonfasting cholesterol concentration was 72...

The open access editorial noted here serves as an introduction to some of the current thinking on the role of cytomegalovirus (CMV) in the age-related decline of the immune system. CMV infection is pervasive throughout the population, particularly in the old. This persistent viral infection cannot be effectively cleared by the immune system, and an ever greater percentage of immune cells become uselessly specialized to fight CMV. This leaves ever fewer immune cells ready to tackle other threats. This seems an important component of immune dysfunction, one that can perhaps be addressed by selectively destroying these immune...

Further insight into humoral viral immunity after hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) could have potential impact on donor selection or monitoring of patients. Currently, estimation of humoral immune recovery is inferred from lymphocyte counts or immunoglobulin levels and does not address vulnerability to specific viral infections. We interrogated the viral antibody repertoire before and after HCT using a novel serosurvey (VirScan) that detects immunoglobulin G responses to 206 viruses. We performed VirScan on cryopreserved serum from pre-HCT and 30, 100, and 365 days after myeloablative HCT from 37 donor-recipient pa...
