  2. In May 2005, visceral leishmaniasis (VL) was recognized for the first time in Libo Kemkem, Ethiopia. In October 2005, a rapid assessment was conducted using data from 492 patients with VL treated in the district health center and a household survey…
  3. Katayama syndrome is an early clinical manifestation of schistosomiasis that occurs several weeks post-infection with Schistosoma spp (trematode) worms. Because of this temporal delay and its non-specific presentation, it is the form of…
  4. Vertebrates have developed systems of immune defence enabling them to cope with the constant threat posed by environmental pathogens. The mammalian immune system represents a multilayered defence system comprising both innate and adaptive immune…

  8. Dengue is a major public health problem in tropical and subtropical countries. Exploring the relationships between virological features of infection with patient immune status and outcome may help to identify predictors of disease severity and…
  9. The growth hormone/IGF-1-signaling (GH/IGF-1-signaling) system is involved in numerous physiological processes during normal growth and development and also in the aging process. Understanding the regulation of this system is therefore of importance…
  10. OBJECTIVE: Dengue has been endemic in Puerto Rico for three decades. Multiple educational and community-based efforts have been developed to inform the population about dengue prevention. We undertook this study to understand the community members'…
  11. BACKGROUND: Intermittent preventive treatment for prevention of malaria in pregnancy (IPTp) is a key component of malaria control strategy in Nigeria and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) is the drug of choice. Despite the evidence of the effectiveness…
  12. A survey was undertaken to determine the knowledge, attitudes and practices relating to the control of dengue haemorrhagic fever in an urban Malay kampung in Kuala Lumpur. Recommendations such as mass media infor- mation, spraying and cooperative…
  13. BACKGROUND: The World health Organization (WHO) declares dengue and dengue hemorrhagic fever to be endemic in South Asia. Despite the magnitude of problem, no documented evidence exists in Pakistan which reveals the awareness and practices of the…
