A new approach to define acceptance limits for hematology in external quality assessment schemes.

Laboratory Medicine (EQALM) decided to perform a statistical study with the aim of establishing appropriate acceptance limits (AL) allowing harmonization between the evaluation procedures of European EQAS ...

Is a Health Interview Survey an appropriate tool to assess domestic violence?

violence in the self-administered questionnaire. This study is limited to people aged 15+ that at least completed the first question of this topic. Socio-demographic characteristics of item non-respondents ...

Reduced virulence of a pseudorabies virus isolate from wild boar origin in domestic pigs correlates with hampered visceral spread and age-dependent reduced neuroinvasive capacity.

efficiently suppressed in the trigeminal ganglion in the presence of a moderate induction of cytokine-related mRNA. Viral replication in the peripheral and central nervous system of 15-week-old pigs was limited ...

Virulence and immunogenicity of genetically defined human and porcine isolates of M. avium subsp. hominissuis in an experimental mouse infection

family, that were identical with Mah 104 strain. Despite the obvious limitations of the mouse model, a striking link of virulence and identity at the genome level of porcine and human isolates with the same ...

High relative humidity pre-harvest reduces post-harvest proliferation of Salmonella in tomatoes.

therefore becomes increasingly important to safeguard public health. Previous experiments showed a limited impact of pre-harvest production practices on Salmonella proliferation on tomatoes, but suggested ...

Pregnancy outcome after cervical conisation: A 2nd retrospective cohort study in the Leuven University Hospital.

a significant trend towards smaller cones which was accompanied by a decrease in preterm birth after excisional treatment. The clinician could limit the size of the cone to avoid obstetrical harms, but needs to ...

Migrant's access to preventive health services in five EU countries.

a high of 4.4 times (flu vaccination) for migrants. The comparison among the five EU countries included in the study showed similarities, with particularly limited access recorded in Italy and in Belgium ...

What can the CF registry tell us about rare CFTR-mutations? A Belgian study.

Abstract: BACKGROUND: CFTR2 provides clinical and functional information of the most common CFTR-mutations. Rare mutations (RM s) occur in only a few patients with limited reported clinical data. Their role ...

Improved Metrological Traceability of Particle Size Values Measured with Line-Start Incremental Centrifugal Liquid Sedimentation.

traceability statement of certified particle size reference materials, for which the traceability is limited to the size and density values of the calibrant particles. Health Topics:  Animal health Category:  A1 ...

Laboratory validation of two real-time RT-PCR methods with 5'-tailed primers for an enhanced detection of foot-and-mouth disease virus.

purposes, both assays were run in parallel in a triplex one-step RT-qPCR protocol with beta-actin as an internal control and synthetic RNA as an external control. We obtained low limits of detection and high ...
