The seroprevalence of cytomegalovirus infection in Belgium anno 2002 and 2006: a comparative analysis with hepatitis A virus seroprevalence

Belgian cross-sectional serological datasets from 1993, 2002 and 2006, was used as a comparator since individuals acquire lifelong immunity upon recovery, implying an increasing seroprevalence with age. The ...

Subtype-specific differences in the risk of hospitalisation among patients infected with hepatitis E virus genotype 3 in Belgium, 2010-2018.

established to date. Here, we report that patients infected with HEV-3c were at lower risk of hospitalisation, compared to those infected with HEV-3f, the other main subtype circulating in Belgium. Health ...

A Comparative Immunogenicity and Safety Trial of Two Different Schedules of Single-visit Intradermal Rabies Post-exposure Vaccination Following a Single-visit Pre-exposure Vaccination.

prevention and therefore increase compliance. METHODS: In a comparative trial, 303 healthy adults received a primary vaccination consisting of two intradermal (ID) doses of 0.1mL of the purified chicken embryo ...

Contribution of chronic conditions to smoking differences in life expectancy with and without disability in Belgium

decomposition methods. Results Never smokers live longer than daily smokers. DFLE advantage at age 15 of +8.5/+4.3 years (y) in men/women never compared with daily smokers was the result of lower mortality (+6.2y/+3y) and ...

Generating the evidence for risk reduction: a contribution to the future of food-based dietary guidelines.

group level is that the results are better interpretable compared with nutrients or complex dietary patterns. Such results are also easier to transfer into recommendations on primary prevention of ...

Comparison of matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) systems for the identification of moulds in the routine microbiology laboratory.

purpose of this study was to compare the efficiency of mould identification of two matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI- TOF MS) systems — Vitek MS (VMS) and ...

Molecular epidemiology and antimicrobial resistance mechanisms of Campylobacter coli from diarrhoeal patients and broiler carcasses in Belgium.

patients. Both porA typing and MLST revealed a similar discriminatory power (0.969), which was the highest discriminatory power when compared to other methods. Minimum inhibitory concentrations against seven ...

Investigating the risk-benefit balance of substituting red and processed meat with fish in a Danish diet.

diet. We modeled the substitution among Danish adults based on data from a Danish dietary survey and compared four alternative scenarios based on varying chemical and nutrient exposures to the current ...

Evaluation of three MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry libraries for the identification of filamentous fungi in three clinical microbiology laboratories in Manitoba, Canada.

comparative libraries support potential application of MALDI- TOF MS for mould identification in clinical microbiology laboratories. We evaluated the performance of the Bruker Microflex™ MALDI- TOF MS ...

VALHUDES: A protocol for validation of human papillomavirus assays and collection devices for HPV testing on self-samples and urine samples.

compare the clinical sensitivity and specificity of particular hrHPV assay(s) on vaginal self-samples and first-void-urine, collected in agreement with standardized protocols, with hrHPV testing on matched ...
