Synopsis: 
Identification of cytomegalovirus in newborns (congenital) by molecular biology methods polymerase chain reaction was more feasible using urine collection which is less invasive. The procedure, though laborious, is less expensive and more efficient compared to the use blood or blood culture.

 

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Knowing the frequency of congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection in newborn admitted to the Division of Neonatology, analysed by nested polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and DNA detection differences in blood and urine specimens.

Methods:  The study was carried out for eight months. Newborns (n = 520) hospitalized in five hospitals in Campo Grande-MS were CMV checked.

Prevalence of Toxoplasmosis, Cytomegalovirus and Rubella IgG Antibodies in Hatay Women and Children

Issue: 
Pages: 
154–7
Synopsis: 
Routine serological screening for toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus and rubella should be recommended in women of childbearing age. Seronegative subjects should be vaccinated for rubella and educated for protection from toxoplasmosis.

 

ABSTRACT

Objective: Toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus and rubella may cause congenital infections. The aim of this study is to investigate toxoplasmosis, cytomegalovirus and rubella IgG antibodies in women and children who were admitted to the Hatay Women and Children Hospital between January 1 and December 31, 2009.
