  • Prospective seroepidemiologic study on the role of Human Papillomavirus and other infections in cervical carcinogenesis: evidence from the EPIC cohort. (ox.ac.uk)
  • To evaluate prospectively the association between serological markers of selected infections, including HPV, and risk of developing cervical cancer (CC) and precancer, we performed a nested case-control study within the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study that included 184 cases of invasive CC (ICC), 425 cases of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 3 or carcinoma in situ (CIS), and 1,218 matched control women.

  • specimens
  • Our ability to rapidly enroll participants and collect satisfactory specimens suggests that seroepidemiologic studies with 1000-2000 participants could efficiently be completed over the 12-day course of the Minnesota State Fair. (springer.com)
  • Among 320 apparently healthy children less than 10 years of age from Dondian who had stool specimens collected, cryptosporidial oocysts found in were found in stools of three children from Dondian, and no positive specimens were found in 239 children studied from Linshan. (ajtmh.org)
  • Methods
  • It now appears that some of the inconsistency of results from study to study may be due, in part, to lack of standardized methods. (asm.org)
  • METHODS: To maximize the potential predictive value of this retrospective study we included sera from a cohort of 3052 healthy male individuals, subsequently followed for the development of coronary artery disease, and documented for other disease risk factors. (biomedsearch.com)
  • diagnosis
  • To conduct a study in a small rural hospital located in the state of Chiapas, Mexico, to: (1) examine the prevalence of chagasic cardiomyopathy among patients with the diagnosis of congestive heart failure and (2) assess the prevalence of positive serologic results in blood donors in the hospital, in an attempt to ascertain whether Chagas' disease remains an important cause of heart failure at least in some areas of Mexico.

  • disease
  • This setting raises the possibility of efficiently conducting annual population-based seroepidemiologic studies to supplement traditional public health surveillance in estimating disease prevalence, monitoring vaccine impact, and identifying at-risk groups. (springer.com)
  • Initial studies of the association of C. pneumoniae and cardiovascular disease (CVD) were seroepidemiologic, and these were followed by studies in which the organism was identified in vascular tissue from patients with CVD by electron microscopy, PCR and immunocytochemical staining (ICC).

  • Chlamydia pneumoniae, but not Bartonella quintana, is associated with coronary heart disease: results of a French case-control study. (biomedsearch.com)
  • To investigate this hypothesis, we evaluated, in a case-control study, the prevalence of C. pneumoniae and B. quintana antibodies among 296 cases with angiographically significant artery lesions and 170 controls without angiographically demonstrable coronary artery disease. (biomedsearch.com)

  • This is a cross-sectional study performed with four hundred and two female sex workers in Goiânia, Brazil. (scielosp.org)
  • Clinical
  • This study was funded by a Clinical and Translational Science Institute Driven to Discover Community Health Research Grant and a J.B. Hawley Student Research Award from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. (springer.com)
  • preliminary
  • This study provides preliminary serological data on exposure of domestic animals to Rickettsia, Orientia, and Coxiella. (pubfacts.com)
  • results
  • These results suggest a role for A. namaquensis as a cryptic carrier for RVF virus during interepizootic periods and support the results of other studies suggesting an amplifying role for heavy rainfall in the circulation of RVF virus. (ajtmh.org)
  • markers
  • Recent studies have demonstrated that various markers of systemic inflammation can predict future cardiovascular events including nonfatal and fatal myocardial infarction and stroke ( 2 , 70 , 115 , 116 ). (asm.org)
