cellular microbiology in the 21st century.dr finlay is a professor in the michael smith laboratories, and the departments of biochemistry and molecular biology, and microbiology and immunology at the university of british columbia (ubc), canada. he obtained a bsc (honors) in biochemistry at the university of alberta, canada, where he also studied for his phd (1986) in biochemistry under dr william paranchych, studying f-like plasmid conjugation. his postdoctoral studies were performed with dr stanley falkow at the department of medical ...200617661627
magnitude and determinants of first-time and repeat testing among individuals with newly diagnosed hiv infection between 2000 and 2001 in alberta, canada: results from population-based laboratory surveillance.the purpose of the study was to determine the magnitude and predictors of first-time and repeat testing for hiv infection among newly diagnosed cases in alberta, canada, and to determine the extent of co-infection with hepatitis c (hcv) and hepatitis b (hbv). using the provincial laboratory for public health (plph) database, all newly diagnosed hiv cases in alberta between 2000 and 2001 were identified and the testing history for hiv, hcv, and hbv among these cases since 1992 was reviewed. signi ...200415577424
development of a multiplex real-time pcr for the simultaneous detection of herpes simplex and varicella zoster viruses in cerebrospinal fluid and lesion swab specimens.herpes simplex viruses (hsv) and varicella zoster virus (vzv) can have very similar and wide-ranging clinical presentations. rapid identification is necessary for timely antiviral therapy, especially with infections involving the central nervous system, neonates, and immunocompromised individuals. detection of hsv-1, hsv-2 and vzv was combined into one real-time pcr reaction utilizing hydrolysis probes. the assay was validated on the lightcycler(®) (roche) and applied biosystems 7500 real-time p ...201626711555
the multi-faceted dynamics of hiv-1 transmission in northern alberta: a combined analysis of virus genetic and public health data.molecular epidemiology has become a key tool for tracking infectious disease epidemics. here, the spread of the most prevalent hiv-1 subtypes in northern alberta, canada, was characterized with a bayesian phylogenetic approach using 1146 hiv-1 pol sequences collected between 2007 and 2013 for routine clinical management purposes. available patient metadata were qualitatively interpreted and correlated with onwards transmission using fisher exact tests and logistic regression. most infections wer ...201728427935
