  2. Heterogeneous imaging characteristics of JC virus granule cell neuronopathy (GCN): a case series and review of the literature.

    Journal of Neurology 262(1):65 (2015) PMID 25297924

    Granule cell neuronopathy (GCN) is a rare JC virus (JCV)-related disease in immunocompromised patients, characterized by lytic infection of the cerebellar granule cell layer. To enable early diagnosis and intervention, we identify features of GCN and describe possible aspects of disease heteroge...

  4. Lymphocytes infiltrate the quadriceps muscle in lymphocytic myocarditis patients: a potential new diagnostic tool.

    Canadian Journal of Cardiology 30(12):1547 (2014) PMID 25442457

    Diagnosing lymphocytic myocarditis (LM) is challenging because of the large variation in clinical presentation and the limitations inherent in current diagnostic tools. The objective of this study was to analyze infiltration of inflammatory cells in quadriceps skeletal muscle of LM patients and ...

  9. Using routine diagnostic data as a method of surveillance of arboviral infection in travellers: A comparative analysis with a focus on dengue

    Travel Medicine and Infectious Disease 12(2):159 (2014)

    Background In a large part of the developing world, limited infectious disease surveillance is performed. In laboratory information management systems data on diagnostic requests is available and may be amenable to trend analyses. We explored this potential, using DENV diagno...
  10. [The embarrassing lessons of Ebola: scientific knowledge comes too late].

    Nederlands tijdschrift voor geneeskunde. Amsterdam 158:A8402 (2014) PMID 25351387

    The current Ebola epidemic in Western Africa painfully illustrates both the devastating power of a deadly virus once introduced into a severely compromised health care system, and the unpreparedness of Western countries to respond appropriately. After at least 3857 casualties there has still bee...
  11. Inactivation of Influenza A virus, Adenovirus, and Cytomegalovirus with PAXgene tissue fixative and formalin.

    Biopreservation and Biobanking 11(4):229 (2013) PMID 24845590

    Formalin fixation is known to inactivate most viruses in a vaccine production context, but nothing is published about virus activity in tissues treated with alternative, non-crosslinking fixatives. We used a model assay based on cell culture to test formalin and PAXgene Tissue fixative for their...

    Only 10-15% of neonates with congenital cytomegalovirus infection have symptoms at birth. The most common symptoms are intrauterine growth retardation, microcephaly, petechiae, jaundice, hepatosplenomegaly, intracranial abnormalities, ophthalmological abnormalities and hearing loss. Symptomatic ...

  18. Involvement of the endoplasmic reticulum in peroxisome formation.

    Molecular Biology of the Cell 14(7):2900 (2003) PMID 12857873 PMCID PMC165685

    The traditional view holds that peroxisomes are autonomous organelles multiplying by growth and division. More recently, new observations have challenged this concept. Herein, we present evidence supporting the involvement of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) in peroxisome formation by electron mic...

  20. The plasticity of multivesicular bodies and the regulation of antigen presentation.

    Seminars in Cell & Developmental Biology 13(4):303 (2002) PMID 12243730

    Multivesicular bodies (MVBs) are ubiquitous endocytic organelles containing numerous 50-80 nm vesicles. MVBs are very dynamic in shape and function. In antigen presenting cells (APCs), MVBs play a central role in the loading of major histocompatibility complex class II (MHC II) with antigenic pe...
