    Notes: Abstract There is only sparse information about the development of children after successful treatment for intracranial germ-cell tumours. Between January 1981 and June 1992, 26 children with intracranial germ-cell tumours were treated in the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf. We report on treatment results, long standing residuals and the “quality of life” of these patients. The long-term event-free survival was 88% for the germinomas and 43% for the malignant teratomas. Of the patients 58% had no relevant functional neurological deficits and 37% had mild impairment. Only 1 patient with metastatic disease was severely handicapped. Six patients showed neuro-endocrine dysfunction. All of them had suprasellar/hypothalamic lesions and all received successful substitution therapy. As to neuropsychological functions, 53% of the patients had no or only mild disturbances. The most affected function was speed of information processing. Of the children 69% were able to proceed with their education at the same level as before therapy. The overall self-assessment revealed good results in 75% of the patients. Conclusion After surgical removal and radiation therapy long-term survival of intracranial germinomas amounts to 88%. Despite craniospinal axis radiation severe residuals are rare and a good quality of life is common. In malignant teratomas treatment regimens including chemotherapy are much less successful.

    Notes: Abstract Genes for (methyl)phenol degradation in Pseudomonas putida strain H (phl genes) are located on the plasmid pPGH1. Adjacent to the phl catabolic operon we identified a cryptic transposon, Tn5501, of the Tn3 family (class II transposons). The genes encoding the resolvase and the transposase are transcribed in the same direction, as is common for the Tn501 subfamily. The enzymes encoded by Tn5501, however, show only the overall homology characteristic for resolvases/integrases and transposases of Tn3-type transposons. Therefore it is likely that Tn5501 is not a member of one of the previously defined subfamilies. Inactivation of the conditional lethal sacB gene was used to detect transposition of Tn5501. While screening for transposition events we found another transposon integrated into sacB in one of the sucrose-resistant survivors. This element, Tn5502, is a composite transposon consisting of Tn5501 and an additional DNA fragment. It is flanked by inverted repeats identical to those of Tn5501 and the additional fragment is separated from the Tn5501 portion by an internal repeat (identical to the left terminal repeat). Transposition of phenol degradation genes could not be detected. Analysis of sequence data revealed that the phl genes are not located on a Tn5501-like transposon.

    Notes: Abstract   Epidemiological studies in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern have shown a high prevalence of Borrelia burgdorferi-infected ticks. A total of 17 B. burgdorferi sensu lato strains were isolated from ticks and investigated by Western blots (immunoblot) with eight monoclonal antibodies against different epitopes of the outer surface protein A (OspA). Except for one, all strains could be classified using this system. The majority of strains belonged to the B. garinii-associated OspA serotypes 3, 5 and 6. Three isolates were classified as OspA serotype 2 (B. afzelii). B. burgdorferi sensu stricto strains (OspA serotype 1) as well as B. garinii-associated OspA serotype 4 were not present.
