Sorry, no etymologies found.
Too early for viremia, but timing is exact for autoimmune reaction.
The virus itself may be detected in blood during the viremia phase of illness or post-mortem tissues by a variety of techniques including virus propagation (in cell cultures or inoculated animals), antigen detection tests, and PCR, a molecular method for detecting the viral genome.
Through 12 months post-transplant, statistically significant improvements were achieved compared to the placebo group for all key viral reactivation endpoints: the occurrence of CMV viremia, the median time to initial viremia, the number of CMV viremia episodes, the duration of viremia, and the prevalence of CMV viremia episodes over the trial period.
The development of CMV CNS disease is associated with risk factors (T-cell depletion, anti-thymocyte globulin, umbilical cord blood transplantation) that cause severe and protracted T-cell immunodeficiency (8 of 11 cases), a history of recurrent CMV viremia treated with multiple courses of preemptive ganciclovir or foscarnet therapy (11 of 11 cases), and ganciclovir-resistant CMV infection (11 of 11 cases).
The median time span between detection of AdV loads in stool specimens above 1 × 10E6 copies per gram and first observation of viremia was 11 days (range 0-192).
We observed that molecular detection of the virus in stool specimens commonly precedes AdV viremia, suggesting that intestinal infections may represent a common source of virus dissemination.
Study participants will receive CMX001 once weekly following stem cell engraftment through post-transplant week 13, and will be monitored for CMV disease and viremia.
A fourth RCT by Schwarz et al. randomized children with biopsy-proven chronic hepatitis and viremia in Europe, the US, and
After controlling for all other hypothesized risk factors as well as active alcohol use and site, detectable HIV viremia (adjusted OR, 2.56; 95% CI, 1.02 - 8.87) and diabetes mellitus (adjusted OR, 3.15; 95% CI, 1.12 - 10.10) remained associated with significant fibrosis by APRI.
HIV viremia and diabetes mellitus were associated with significant fibrosis.
