    We evaluated the effectiveness of the newly developed WAKO beta-glucan test which measures plasma (1-->3)-beta-D-glucan concentrations in the diagnosis of Candida deep mycosis. This test was compared to the Cand-Tec test. The WAKO beta-glucan test and Cand-Tec test were performed on 212 plasma specimens which were taken at 212 instances from 62 immunocompromised patients with serious diseases; i.e. hematopoietic malignancy, solid malignant tumor, etc. The sensitivities and specificities ...

    A 71-year-old Japanese male with myelodysplastic syndrome progressing to overt leukaemia and hepatocellular carcinoma developed dyspnea and urticaria immediately after infusion of platelet concentrate (PC). He exhibited an identical reaction following blood transfusion. Serum haptoglobin was undetectable. The patient was determined to be homozygous for Hp(del) by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Antibody to haptoglobin was detected by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and Western ...

    All immunocompromised hosts, such as infants, the elderly, patients with advanced cancer, and patients being treated with immunosuppressants, etc., are said to be more susceptible to cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection or CMV disease. However, we questioned the validity of this conclusion and attempted to detect CMV viremia in the plasma of subjects by using the AMPLICOR CMV test (Roche Diagnostics Systems, Branchburg, NJ), the first standardized PCR kit for CMV infection. One hundred ...

    Active cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection was treated successfully by only CMV antibody-enriched immunoglobulin (CMV-IG) in a renal transplant recipient. CMV-IG was injected at 86 mg/kg i.v. twice a day for a total of 16 days (4 plus 12 days, interrupted by a pause of 4 days), followed by weekly i.v. injection of 86 mg/kg (7 weeks). Active CMV infection was diagnosed on the basis of DNAemia in plasma, by a newly developed CMV polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test (AMPLICOR CMV). The ...
