Isolation and characterization of microsatellite markers in the newly discovered invasive fruit fly pest in Africa, Bactrocera invadens (Diptera: Tephritidae).
(Molecular Ecology Resources, 2008-11)
We describe the isolation and characterization of 11 polymorphic microsatellite loci from the recently discovered fruit fly pest, Bactrocera invadens. The polymorphism of these loci was tested in individual flies from two ...
Over-diagnosis and co-morbidity of severe malaria in African children: a guide for clinicians.
(The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, 2007-12)
Severe malaria is clinically similar to other severe febrile illnesses. However, in endemic areas, parasitological confirmation of parasitemia is often unavailable or unreliable. False-positive malaria microscopy is common. ...
Research priorities in the management of severe Plasmodium falciparum malaria in children.
(Ann Trop Med Parasitol., 2006-03)
Severe malaria is a common reason for admission to paediatric wards in hospitals across sub-Saharan Africa. Despite over 100 years of research, mortality remains high. Deaths are associated with severe metabolic acidosis, ...
HIV infection, malnutrition, and invasive bacterial infection among children with severe malaria.
(Clinical Infectious Diseases, 2009-08)
BACKGROUND: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, malnutrition, and invasive bacterial infection (IBI) are reported among children with severe malaria. However, it is unclear whether their cooccurrence with ...
High levels of erythropoietin are associated with protection against neurological sequelae in African children with cerebral malaria.
(National Academy of Sciences, 2008-02-19)
Cerebral malaria (CM) in children is associated with a high mortality and long-term neurocognitive sequelae. Both erythropoietin (Epo) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) have been shown to be neuroprotective. ...
