Getah virus (GETV) is a mosquito-borne alphavirus that is considered to be an emerging pathogen. To date, reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) has not been used to detect GETV. Therefore, we describe a novel, fast, and sensitive LAMP method to detect GETV. Amplification of GETV RNA can be obtained within 50 min at 65°C. This RT-LAMP method was verified to be highly specific for GETV, with no cross detection of other viruses. The assay was 10 and 10 times more sensitive than RT-PCR and RT-qPCR, respectively, for the detection of GETV RNA. This novel RT-LAMP method provides a practical and economical alternative for detecting GETV in mosquitoes and serum samples that can be used even in the field.

Banna virus (BAV) is classified in the genus Seadornavirus within the Reoviridae family and considered to be an emerging pathogen. We aimed to develop a rapid and simple molecular detection approach f...
Cronobacter species previously known as Enterobacter sakazakii poses high risks to neonates and infants. In this work a rapid detection method was developed which combined loop-mediated isothermal amp...
Seneca Valley virus 1 (SVV-1) has been associated with vesicular disease in swine, with clinical signs indistinguishable from those of other notifiable vesicular diseases such as foot-and-mouth diseas...
Vibrio parahaemolyticus is one of the most important foodborne pathogens that cause various life-threatening diseases in human and animals. Here, we present a rapid detection platform for V. parahaemo...
This is a cross-sectional and multicentre clinical trial to study the performance of the Histidine Rich Protein 2 (HRP2) highly sensitive rapid diagnostic test (HS-RDT) for the detection o...
Currently loop recorders diagnose arrhythmias and send automatic alerts to physicians based on R to R relationships only. We believe arrhythmia diagnostics could be improved if accurate de...
Visual development during early childhood is a vital process. Examining the visual acuity of children is essential for the early detection of visual abnormality, but performing such an ass...

The purpose of this study is to determine if rapid early detection of the bacteria causing sepsis in burn patients improves patient outcomes.
Temporary visual deficit or impaired visual processing occurring in a rapid serial visual presentation task. After a person identifies the first of two visual targets, the ability to detect the second target is impaired for the next few hundred milliseconds. This phenomenon is called attentional blink.
Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.
An opportunistic viral infection of the central nervous system associated with conditions that impair cell-mediated immunity (e.g., ACQUIRED IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME and other IMMUNOLOGIC DEFICIENCY SYNDROMES; HEMATOLOGIC NEOPLASMS; IMMUNOSUPPRESSION; and COLLAGEN DISEASES). The causative organism is JC Polyomavirus (JC VIRUS) which primarily affects oligodendrocytes, resulting in multiple areas of demyelination. Clinical manifestations include DEMENTIA; ATAXIA; visual disturbances; and other focal neurologic deficits, generally progressing to a vegetative state within 6 months.

A mechanism of communication with a physiological system for homeostasis, adaptation, etc. Physiological feedback is mediated through extensive feedback mechanisms that use physiological cues as feedback loop signals to control other systems.
Clarity or sharpness of OCULAR VISION or the ability of the eye to see fine details. Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.
An assay is an analytic procedure for qualitatively assessing or quantitatively measuring the presence or amount or the functional activity of a target entity. This can be a drug or biochemical substance or a cell in an organism or organic sample. ...
