    Author : Ola Forslund; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; mRNA expression; microwell; HPV 70; type determination; CIN; quantification; urine; multifocal infections; hybridization; PCR; HPV; human papillomavirus; Microbiology; bacteriology; virology; mycology; Mikrobiologi; bakteriologi; virologi; mykologi;

    Abstract : The occurrence of genital human papillomavirus infection was determined in different categories of patients by means of PCR. In high proportion of young women attending an adolescent clinic, the presence of HPV DNA was demonstrated in simultaneously urethral and cervical samples, suggesting that genital HPV infections are often multifocal.

    Abstract : The human polyomaviruses BKV and JCV are endemic and infect > 70% of population worldwide. Primary infections occur during childhood and are largely subclinical. Following primary infection, both viruses persist as latent infections in the kidneys and B lymphocytes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Genomic Organization and Capsid Architecture of Ljungan Virus a Novel Member of the Picornaviridae

    University dissertation from Department of Medical Microbiology, Lund University

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Microbiology Virology; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Mikrobiologi Virologi; Virologi; Virology;

    Abstract : Ljungan virus är ett virus som isolerades i Sverige i mitten på nittiotalet. Under perioden 1989-1992 avled flera svenska elitorienterare plötsligt i hjärtmuskelinflammation. Man misstänkte att orienterarna kunde ha utsatts för en vektorburen infektion eftersom de exponeras för djur som finns i skog och mark under träning och tävling. READ MORE

    Abstract : Influenza A virus belongs to the Orothomyxoviridae family of viruses and is one of the most common pathogens that cause infections of the respiratory tract. The aim of this thesis was to investigate if neuraminidase inhibitor (NAI) Tamiflu® (oseltamivir, OC) and Relenza® (zanamivir, ZA) - related resistance mutations exist in the neuraminidase (NA) gene of viruses collected from wild birds.
