Performance of the QuickVue Influenza A+B Rapid Test for Pandemic H1N1 (2009) Virus Infection in Adults
Wolfgang Poeppl, Harald Herkner, Heinz Burgmann, Tom Pustelnik, Gerhard Mooseder, Theresia Popow-Kraupp, Monika Redlberger-Fritz
PLOS ONE , 2011, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0028089
Abstract: To investigate the diagnostic accuracy of the QuickVue? Influenza A+B rapid test we conducted a prospective observational study in which this rapid test was compared with a real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) for pandemic influenza A H1N1 (2009) infection in Austrian adults. The sensitivity, specificity, and positive and negative predictive values of the QuickVue test compared with the RT-PCR were 26% (95% CI 18–35), 98% (95% CI 92–100), 94% (95% CI 80–99) and 50% (95% CI 42–58), respectively. The prevalence of pandemic H1N1 (2009) virus infection among the 209 patients included in the study was 57%. Our data suggest that a positive QuickVue test provides considerable information for the diagnosis of pandemic influenza A H1N1 (2009) virus infection in young adults but that a negative QuickVue test result should, if relevant for patient management or public health measures, be verified using PCR.
Entwicklungen in der Hepatitis-B-Diagnostik: Quantitatives HBsAg, HBV-Genotypen, Real-Time PCR HBV-DNA
Popow-Kraupp T,Strassl R
Journal für Gastroenterologische und Hepatologische Erkrankungen , 2012,
Abstract: Die Hepatitis-B-Virus- (HBV-) Infektion stellt aufgrund des breiten Spektrums an m glichen Verlaufsformen eine diagnostische Herausforderung dar. Der unabl ssigen Forschung ist es zu verdanken, dass das Wissen um die pathogenetischen und molekularen Mechanismen dieser Infektion stetig zugenommen und zu signifikanten diagnostischen Verbesserungen geführt hat. Speziell die quantitative Bestimmung der HBV-Nukleins ure mittels PCR bedeutete einen diagnostischen Meilenstein, der heute fest in den international gültigen Guidelines verankert ist. Die Einteilung der klinischen Verlaufsformen der persistierenden HBV-Infektion sowie die überwachung von Patienten unter antiviraler Therapie basieren auf dieser anerkannten Standardmethode. Im Gegensatz dazu stehen weitere Untersuchungsmethoden, wie die HBV-Genotypisierung oder die HBsAg-Quantifizierung, deren Stellenwert derzeit noch kontroversiell diskutiert wird. Aufgrund der bisher vorliegenden Daten scheinen diese beiden Parameter für die Einsch tzung des Ansprechens auf die antivirale Therapie von prognostischem Nutzen zu sein. Hervorzuheben ist hier speziell die HBsAg-Quantifizierung, die sich nicht zuletzt wegen ihrer einfachen Durchführung und ihrer Kosteneffektivit t als Routineparameter etablieren k nnte. Ziel des vorliegenden Artikels ist es, nicht nur einen Einblick in die aktuell gültige Standarddiagnostik zu geben, sondern auch den derzeitigen Forschungsstand kritisch zu beleuchten. Das Verst ndnis der molekularen Mechanismen ist hierfür essenziell, weshalb diese auch genauer dargestellt werden.
Immunogenicity and Tolerability after Two Doses of Non-Adjuvanted, Whole-Virion Pandemic Influenza A (H1N1) Vaccine in HIV-Infected Individuals
Heimo Lagler, Katharina Grabmeier-Pfistershammer, Veronique Touzeau-R?mer, Selma Tobudic, Michael Ramharter, Judith Wenisch, Guido Andrés Gualdoni, Monika Redlberger-Fritz, Theresia Popow-Kraupp, Armin Rieger, Heinz Burgmann
PLOS ONE , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0036773
Abstract: Background During the influenza pandemic of 2009/10, the whole-virion, Vero-cell-derived, inactivated, pandemic influenza A (H1N1) vaccine Celvapan? (Baxter) was used in Austria. Celvapan? is adjuvant-free and was the only such vaccine at that time in Europe. The objective of this observational, non-interventional, prospective single-center study was to evaluate the immunogenicity and tolerability of two intramuscular doses of this novel vaccine in HIV-positive individuals. Methods and Findings A standard hemagglutination inhibition (HAI) assay was used for evaluation of the seroconversion rate and seroprotection against the pandemic H1N1 strain. In addition, H1N1-specific IgG antibodies were measured using a recently developed ELISA and compared with the HAI results. Tolerability of vaccination was evaluated up to one month after the second dose. A total of 79 HIV-infected adults with an indication for H1N1 vaccination were evaluated. At baseline, 55 of the 79 participants had an HAI titer ≥1:40 and two patients showed a positive IgG ELISA. The seroconversion rate was 31% after the first vaccination, increasing to 41% after the second; the corresponding seroprotection rates were 92% and 83% respectively. ELISA IgG levels were positive in 25% after the first vaccination and in 37% after the second. Among the participants with baseline HAI titers <1:40, 63% seroconverted. Young age was clearly associated with lower HAI titers at baseline and with higher seroconversion rates, whereas none of the seven patients >60 years of age had a baseline HAI titer <1:40 or seroconverted after vaccination. The vaccine was well tolerated. Conclusion The non-adjuvanted pandemic influenza A (H1N1) vaccine was well tolerated and induced a measurable immune response in a sample of HIV-infected individuals.
Judith Stofer, Rifa’at Lenzin (Hg.): K rperlichkeit – ein interreligi s-feministischer Dialog. Zell am Main: Religion & Kultur Verlag 2007

querelles-net , 2009,
Abstract: K rperlichkeit und Geschlechterrollen sind jene Themen, die im ffentlichen Diskurs um Religion, vor allem um die drei monotheistischen Religionen, am meisten kontrovers diskutiert werden. Wie sehr der weibliche K rper in der Auseinandersetzung mit Fragen von Macht und Amt, Reinheit‘ und Unreinheit‘, aber auch für das Gottesbild und das Sprechen über Gott eine Rolle spielt, zeigt der vorgestellte Sammelband. Die Autorinnen sind Angeh rige des Judentums, Christentums und Islams und geben zu den genannten Themen ihre Perspektive wieder, gehen aber auch auf die jeweils anderen Blickwinkel ein, so dass sich ein überraschend vielschichtiges Bild ergibt. Das Buch stellt einen hochinteressanten Beitrag zur aktuellen Debatte um Religion, Geschlecht und Gesellschaft dar. Corporeality and gender roles are those themes that are most controversial in public discourse on religion, especially in the three monotheistic religions. The collected volume introduced here shows how the female body plays an extensive role in the discussion over questions of power and office, “purity” and “impurity,” but also on the image of God and talking about God. The authors each practice Judaism, Christianity, and Islam and express their individual perspectives on the themes mentioned. They each also respond to the other perspectives. The result is a surprisingly multilayered image. The book represents a very interesting contribution to the current debate on religion, gender, and society.

International Journal of Mathematics and Mathematical Sciences , 2009, DOI: 10.1155/2009/589830
Abstract: Let be a bounded Hilbert algebra and a ∨-closed subset of . The Hilbert algebra of fractions is studied regarding maximal and irreducible deductive systems. As important results, we can mention a necessary and sufficient condition for a Hilbert algebra of fractions to be local and the characterization of this kind of algebras as inductive limits of some particular directed systems.

Abstract: Accounting social responsibilities that voluntary disclosurein financial statement need to verify from independent board because stakeholder give a positive response of it. Bu tthere is no standard in accounting social responsibilities. This situation makes difficulty in audit of accounting socialresponsibilities.Based on industrial practice, social responsibilities auditcan do with this process: define objective, identification of stakeholder interest, taking stakeholders interests and views as the core of social audit, verification either internally or external independently, disclosing of performance assessments to the stakeholders and the public, setting up the goals or actions for thenext reporting year. Abstract in Bahasa Indonesia:Akuntansi pertanggungjawaban sosial yang merupakan pengungkapan sukarela dalam laporan keuangan membutuhkan audit oleh pihak-pihak yang independen karena ternyata stakeholder memberikan respon yang positif atas laporan dalam akuntansi pertanggung jawaban sosial. Tetapi, kenyataannya belum ada standar yang mengatur tentang akuntansi pertanggungjawaban sosial yang menyebabkan kesulitan dalam melaksanakan audit atas akuntansi pertanggungjawaban sosial. Berdasarkan praktek-praktek industri, pertanggung jawaban sosial dapat dilakukan melalui beberapa tahapan yaitu menjelaskan tujuan, mengidentifikasikan stakeholder dalam kepentingannya, memperhatikan kepentingan stakeholder dan melihatnya sebagai pusat audit pertanggung jawaban sosial, melakukan verifikasi dari pihak internal dan eksternal yang independent, mengungkapkan penilaian kinerja kepada stakeholder dan publik, menilai kembali tujuan dan aktivitas perusahaan.Kata kunci: Akuntansi pertanggungjawaban sosial, audit pertanggungjawaban sosial.
A Schur function identity related to the (-1)-enumeration of self-complementary plane partitions
Theresia Eisenk?lbl
Mathematics , 2006,
Abstract: We give another proof for the (-1)-enumeration of self-complementary plane partitions with at least one odd side-length by specializing a certain Schur function identity. The proof is analogous to Stanley's proof for the ordinary enumeration. In addition, we obtain enumerations of 180-degree symmetric rhombus tilings of hexagons with a barrier of arbitrary length along the central line.

Mathematics , 2001,
Abstract: We compute 2-enumerations of certain halved alternating sign matrices. In one case the enumeration equals the number of perfect matchings of a halved Aztec diamond. In the other case the enumeration equals the number of perfect matchings of a halved fortress graph. Our results prove three conjectures by Jim Propp.
