Clinical course and outcome of rheumatoid arthritis-related usual interstitial pneumonia.
Conclusions: In spite of variable clinical course of RA-UIP, overall prognosis of RA-UIP was significantly better compared to IPF. Our data supported the treatment of the patients with significant functional impairments or progression. PMID: 24071881 [PubMed - in process]
AbstractPathological examination of a suckling male lamb showed severe viral pneumonia with suspected bacterial superinfection. Adenovirus was detected by immunohistochemical examination of the affected lung samples. Detection of the suspected adenovirus by PCR and subsequent isolation of the virus were successful. Using next-generation sequencing, the full genome of this ovine adenovirus was sequenced and analysed. A genome sequence comparison showed that it was a novel mastadenovirus type (named “ovine adenovirus 8”) that did not belong to any of the established adenovirus species. The genome is 36,206 bp lon...
In this study, two novel phages (ISF3 and ISF6) of a methylotrophicRaoultella strain were isolated from sewage. To characterize the isolated phages, morphological features, protein profiles, restriction digestion patterns, and partial genome sequences were studied. Despite morphological differences, electron microscopy revealed that both phages had an icosahedral capsid connected to a contractile tail, suggesting that ISF3 and ISF6 both belong to the familyMyoviridae. Partial nucleotide sequences of the ISF3 genome showed 99% to 100% identity to DNA ofKlebsiella pneumonia phages KP15, KP27 and BMBT1; however, the restricti...
ConclusionsThis study indicates that there was no significant correlation between IgG antibodies against Toxocara and variables such as gender and age. Based on the statistical analysis, there was no significant difference in Toxocara seropositivity between our control population with MS and RA patients.
