  1. ncbi request reprint Hepatitis B virus X gene 1751 to 1764 mutations: implications for HBeAg status and disease
    K Kidd-Ljunggren
    Department of Virology, University of Umea, Sweden
    J Gen Virol 78:1469-78. 1997
    ..These observations are considered against a secondary structural model for the 3' end of HBV pregenomic RNA which also predicts enhancement of virus replication after mutation at positions 1762 and 1764...
  2. ncbi request reprint Nosocomial transmission of hepatitis B virus infection through multiple-dose vials
    K Kidd-Ljunggren
    Department of Infectious Diseases, University Hospital, Lund, Sweden
    J Hosp Infect 43:57-62. 1999
    ..We believe that multiple-dose vials have no place in modern healthcare and recommend sequence homology analysis as an alternative or additional way to trace a source of HBV infection...
  3. ncbi request reprint The hepatitis B virus pregenome: prediction of RNA structure and implications for the emergence of deletions
    K Kidd-Ljunggren
    Department of Infectious Diseases, University of Lund, Sweden
    Intervirology 43:154-64. 2000
    ..The loss of such sequences may be mechanistically attributable to polymerase skipping during reverse transcription, and the possible advantages of such deletions are considered...
  4. ncbi request reprint Genetic variability in hepatitis B viruses
    Karin Kidd-Ljunggren
    Department of Infectious Diseases, University of Lund, SE 221 85, Lund, Sweden
    J Gen Virol 83:1267-80. 2002
    ..This review summarizes the knowledge of HBV genotypes with regard to their genetic, structural and clinically significant differences and their origin and evolution in the context of the hepadnaviruses in general...
  5. pmc Clinical and serological variation between patients infected with different Hepatitis B virus genotypes
    Karin Kidd-Ljunggren
    Division of Infectious Diseases, Department of Medical Microbiology, Dermatology and Infection, Lund University, SE 221 85 Lund, Sweden
    J Clin Microbiol 42:5837-41. 2004
    ..The differences were not age related. Therefore, in this large-scale cross-sectional study, genotype D appears to be associated with more active disease...

    Jonas Bläckberg
    Department of Infectious Diseases, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
    J Med Virol 71:18-23. 2003
