PURPOSE:To assess macular vasculature in healthy infants and children using OCT angiography (OCTA). DESIGN:Prospective cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS:One hundred thirty-five normal maculae of 89 healthy infants and ...
Dual infection with Ehrlichia chaffeensis and a spotted fever group rickettsia: a case report.
(Emerging infectious diseases, 1998-04)
Well-documented cases of simultaneous human infection with more than one tick-borne pathogen are rare. To our knowledge only two dual infections have been reported: simultaneous human infection with the agent of ...
Differential prevalence and geographic distribution of hepatitis C virus genotypes in acute and chronic hepatitis C patients in Vietnam.
(PloS one, 2019-01)
BACKGROUND:The highest burden of disease from hepatitis C virus (HCV) is found in Southeast Asia, but our understanding of the epidemiology of infection in many heavily burdened countries is still limited. In particular, ...
Superiority of a novel Mp1p antigen detection enzyme immunoassay compared to standard BACTEC blood culture in the diagnosis of talaromycosis.
(Clinical infectious diseases : an official publication of the Infectious Diseases Society of America, 2020-06-21)
BACKGROUND:Talaromycosis is an invasive mycosis endemic in Southeast Asia and causes substantial morbidity and mortality in individuals with advanced HIV disease. Current diagnosis relies on isolating Talaromyces marneffei ...
