  • Detection of unusual mutation within the VP1 region of different re-isolates of poliovirus Sabin vaccine 

    Dedepsidis, E.; Karakasiliotis, I.; Paximadi, E.; Kyriakopoulou, Z.; Komiotis, D.; Markoulatos, P. (2006)
    In the present study, a genomic analysis of full VP1 sequence region of 15 clinical re-isolates (14 healthy vaccinees and one bone marrow tumor patient) was conducted, aiming to the identification of mutations and to the ...
  • Evolution of a rare vaccine-derived multirecombinant poliovirus 

    Karakasiliotis, I.; Paximadi, E.; Markoulatos, P. (2005)
    Recombination is one of the mechanisms by which viral genomes evolve. A vaccine-derived multirecombinant poliovirus strain was isolated from a 5-month-old child with vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis after oral ...
  • Genomic analysis of recombinant Sabin clinical isolates 

    Paximadi, E.; Karakasiliotis, I.; Mamuris, Z.; Stathopoulos, C.; Krikelis, V.; Markoulatos, P. (2006)
    Recombination in Poliovirus vaccine strains is a very frequent phenomenon. In this report 23 polio/Sabin strains isolated from healthy vaccinees or from VAPP patients after OPV administration, were investigated in order ...
  • Recombinant Sabin environmental isolates in Greece and Cyprus 

    Paximadi, E.; Karakasiliotis, I.; Papaventsis, D.; Papageorgiou, G.; Markoulatos, P. (2008)
    Aims: Twenty-one polioviruses (PVs) Sabin strains were isolated from sewage treatment plants from Metamorphosis, Athens, Greece during the time period from May to October 1996, and from two other sites located at Nicosia ...
  • Vaccine derived bi- and multi-recombinant Sabin strains 

    Paximadi, E.; Karakasiliotis, I.; Bolanaki, E.; Krikelis, A.; Markoulatos, P. (2007)
    A retrospective analysis of five Sabin intertypic recombinant strains, isolated from human feacal specimens during the time period 1978-1985 in Greece, was performed by RT-PCR, Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism ...
