  1. ncbi Revision of the positive predictive value of IgM anti-Toxoplasma antibodies as an index of recent infection
    Massimo De Paschale
    Microbiology Unit, Hospital of Legnano, Milan, Italy
    New Microbiol 31:105-11. 2008
    ..Our results indicate that a highly positive IgM value in patients can be a good index of recent infection, but its poor predictive value in pregnant women underlines the need for additional tests with a follow-up if necessary...
  2. pmc Implementation of Screening for Toxoplasma gondii Infection in Pregnancy
    Massimo De Paschale
    Microbiology Unit, Hospital of Legnano, Milan, Italy
    J Clin Med Res 2:112-6. 2010
    ..The aim of this study was to assess the implementation, in an urban area of Northern Italy, of the 1998 law about 10 years after its entry into force...
  3. pmc Search for Anti-EA(D) Antibodies in Subjects with an "Isolated VCA IgG" Pattern
    Massimo De Paschale
    Microbiology Unit, Hospital of Legnano, Via Candiani 2, 20025 Legnano MI, Italy
    Int J Microbiol 2010:695104. 2010
    ..When other tests are not available, the search for anti-EA antibodies may therefore be helpful in diagnosing patients with an isolated VCA IgG pattern at screening tests...
  4. pmc Prevalence of markers of hepatitis B virus infection or vaccination in HBsAg-negative subjects
    Massimo De Paschale
    Microbiology Unit, Hospital of Legnano, Milan, Italy
    Blood Transfus 10:344-50. 2012
    ..The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of the serological markers of HBV in Italian and non-Italian HBsAg-negative subjects...

    M De Paschale
    Microbiology Unit, Hospital of Legnano, Legnano, Milan, Italy
    Infection 40:485-91. 2012
    ..The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of HDV infection in the general population living in the catchment area of Legnano Hospital in northern Italy...

    ..0% (95% CI, 16.31-29.69) in the period 2001-2008. The results demonstrate that there has been an increase in non-B subtypes (especially sexually transmitted infections), particularly among patients infected abroad or by foreign partners...

    Massimo De Paschale
    Microbiology Unit, Hospital of Legnano, Via Candiani 2, 20025 Legnano, Milan, Italy
    J Virol Methods 168:121-5. 2010
    ..These findings indicate that a specimen in which highly positive IgM ELISA values are confirmed by ELFA, or which shows a high IgM/IgG ratio, is a good indicator of infection occurring within the previous three months...

    Massimo De Paschale
    Microbiology Unit, Hospital of Legnano Milan, Via Candiani 2, 20025 Legnano MI, Italy
    Infect Dis Obstet Gynecol 2009:206505. 2009
    ..The possibility to identify these cases and consequently to plan appropriate interventions, supports the use of screening during pregnancy, especially in the first trimester when the risk of infection is greater...

    Massimo De Paschale
    Microbiology Unit, Hospital of Legnano, Milan, Italy
    J Med Virol 81:325-31. 2009
    ..In children aged less than 10 years, it was associated mainly with acute infection but as past infection may be present in about one-third of such children, this possibility should not be overlooked...
