Relevance of Parvovirus B19, Herpes Simplex Virus 2, and Cytomegalovirus Virologic Markers in Maternal Serum for Diagnosis of Unexplained Recurrent Abortions (Report)

Some evidence suggests that intrauterine infections play a major role in the pathogenesis of early pregnancy loss, but the implication and prevalence of microorganisms in the etiology of spontaneous abortion during the first trimester of pregnancy has not yet been well established. (1) Cytomegalovirus (CMV) and parvovirus B19 are linked to both late abortion and […]

Relevance of Specific Immunoglobulin M and Immunoglobulin G for Parvovirus B19 Diagnosis in Patients with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia Receiving Chemotherapy: Prospective Study (Clinical Report)

Parvovirus B19 (PB19) virion has a simple structure composed of only 2 proteins and a linear, single-stranded DNA molecule. The nonenveloped viral particles are 22 to 24 nm in diameter and show icosahedral symmetry, and often both empty and full capsids are visible by negative staining and electron microscopy. (1) Children are probably at highest […]
