of HHV-8 varied from 12% to 24%, depending on the serologic method used to detect both HHV-8 antibodies and HHV-8 DNA.
In a June 1999 hepatitis B study conducted in North Carolina, the hepatitis B seroprevalence
rate in new mothers was found to be only 0.
in shelter dog populations across Texas.
In fact, using data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III, which included serum samples from 13,904 participants, the investigators found that seroprevalence
of HSV-2 was higher among patients with HSV-1 antibodies than among those without the antibodies, and that 76% of those with HSV-2 antibodies also had HSV-1 antibodies (J.
In this study, we determined the seroprevalence
of WNV in dogs living close to humans in different environments to assess their role as sentinels of this potentially severe zoonosis.
ATLANTA -- Investigators from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are launching a study to determine why Helicobacter pylori seroprevalence
, resistance, and reinfection rates are dramatically higher in the Alaska Native population, compared with other U.
High mean seroprevalence
was found in cow herds; 105 (86.
Our hypothesis was 3-fold: 1) HEV is a possibly undiagnosed pathogen in laboratory rabbits, 2) HEV seroprevalence
is unlikely in rabbits from supplier B (a SPF supplier), and 3) HEV seroprevalence
might confound research.
estimates for dairy cattle farm residents in the Netherlands are outdated, and risk factors associated with seropositivity are seldom studied.
Recent studies have shown that the seroprevalence
of CCHFV antibodies (IgG) in the general population of Greece is [approximately equal to] 4%, but large differences are seen between regions (range 0%-27%) (9-11).
was already high (27% on average) in wild cervids in October 2011 in Belgium, suggesting that the virus began circulating months earlier (before August 2011).
As of September 2013, a total of 108 laboratory-confirmed infections (with 50 deaths) caused by MERS-CoV have been reported to the World Health Organization (WHO), most from Saudi Arabia (3), but data are limited on MERSCoV seroprevalence
in humans (4).
