Mass Antimicrobial Treatment in Pregnancy: A randomized Placebo Controlled Trial in a Population with High Rates of Sexually Transmitted Diseases
(The Journal of Reproductive Medicine, 1995-03)
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are highly prevalent in pregnant women in many developing countries and have been associated with poor obstetric outcomes. Case detection and treatment of STDs in women is problematic ...
Isolation of Trypanosoma Brucei from the Monitor Lizard (Varanus niloticus) in an Endemic Focus of Rhodesian Sleeping Sickness in Kenya.
(Acta Tropica - Journal, 1999)
Monitor lizards were sampled along the shores of Lake Victoria to detect natural infections of potentially human-infective trypanosomes. In an area with endemic rhodesian sleeping sickness, one of 19 lizards was infected ...
Ultrastructural Changes in Salivary Glands of Tsetse, Glossina Morsitans Morsitans, Infected with Virus and Rickettsia-like Organisms.
(Journal of Invertebrate Pathology, 1990-11)
Electron microscope observations on enlarged hypertrophied salivary glands dissected from adult laboratory-reared male Glossina morsitans morsitans show a concurrent infection of the salivary gland tissue with rod-shaped ...
Effect of the Stage of Infection by Rust on Yield of French Beans
The most critical periods of infection of French beans were planted at two sites--Kabete, where temperatures are cool and Naivasha, where it is warmer. They were inoculated with the rust pathogen at six different stages ...
Differentiation of Vector Species of Phlebotominae (Diptera: Psychodidae) in Kenya by Chorionic Sculpturing of their Eggs.
(The Entomological Society of America., 1992)
Chorionic sculpturing on eggs of Phlebotomus pedifer Lewis, Mutinga, and Ashford; the closely related Phlebotomus aculeatus Lewis, Minter, and Ashford (= P. elegonensis Ngoka, Madel, and Mutinga); and Phlebotomus martini ...
Preliminary Observations on the Efficacy of Mel Cy (Cymelarsan) in Domestic Animals Infected with Stocks of Trypanosoma Brucei Brucei and T.b. Evansi.
(Tropical Medicine and Parasitology, 1992-12)
The trypanocidal activity of an arsenical compound (RM 110; mel Cy; Cymelarsan) was evaluated against Trypanosoma brucei brucei and T. brucei evansi in cultures, in goats and pigs. The trypanosome stocks used differed in ...
Tryptophan metabolism and vitamin B6 nutritional status in patients with schistosomiasis mansoni and in infected mice
(Cambridge University Press, 1992-06)
Patients infected with Schistosoma mansoni showed an abnormal response to a test dose of tryptophan, with little increase in the urinary excretion of kynurenine, hydroxykynurenine, xanthurenic and kynurenic acids, N1-methyl ...
Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) analysis of genetic variation in Moringa oleifera Lam
(Blackwell Science Ltd, 1999)
Simulated performance of thermal storage in a solar cooker
An explicit finite-difference method is used to simulate the thermal performance of short-term thermal storage for a focusing, indoor, institutional, solar cooker. The cooker storage unit consists of a cylindrical solid ...
Medicinal plants of Kenya: Effects on Meloidogyne incognita and the growth of okra.
Root dip in the extracts of Datura metel, Ricinus communis and Galium aparinoides significantly reduced infection by Meloidogyne incognita on okra. Soil amendment with these plants had a similar effect. Plant growth improved ...
