In conclusion, influenza A virus infection was detected rather high with a rate of 20.5% in the study group. The monitoring of influenza virus types and subtypes is required for the evaluation of influenza vaccine strains and circulating influenza viruses and for the identification of subtypes with pandemic potential. Planning for appropriate antiviral therapy using real-time RT-PCR in the early diagnosis of influenza virus infections will significantly contribute to the management of the patient's treatment. Thus, unnecessary drug use will be prevented and controlled with effective treatment of the disease at the time of ...

In this study, we examine if the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke differ from that of the general population.MethodsData from the German Acromegaly Registry in seven specialized endocrine centres were analysed (n  = 479, 56% female, 46 years old at diagnosis, 5549 person-years from diagnosis). Standardized incidence ratios (SIR) were calculated as compared to the general population.ResultsMI and stroke incidences were very close to those of the general population with an SIR (95% CI) of 0.89 (0.47 –1.52, p = 0.80) for MI and 1.17 (0.66–1.93, p =&thi...
