However, research on AIDS and disability, particularly a solid(More)
The effect of estradiol-17beta on the length of the various phases of the cell cycle was studied in the neonatal mouse uterine, and cervical epithelium. A double labelling method was used, and in addition labelled mitoses were counted. In the uterus proper, estradiol shortens the length of the total cell cycle. TC, from 17-9 hr to 15-7 hr, and the duration(More)
Purpose. HIV/AIDS has grown to become the biggest epidemic in modern history. Southern Africa is at the epicentre of the global epidemic, with just of a third of the world's HIV-positive population living here. It is known that HIV/AIDS affect vulnerable population groups. It is surprising then, that persons with disabilities, one of the world's most(More)
BACKGROUND Storing K(x)EDTA-conjugated blood samples at room temperature or under insufficient cooling conditions results in various morphological changes such as swelling of the blood cells. These changes are reproducible and have already been described well. However, they can lead to incorrect flagging when using automated hematology analyzers for(More)
BACKGROUND This study was to establish whether there was a difference in the characteristics of people who received a disability grant and those who did not in rural and urban samples of isiXhosa-speaking people with disability in South Africa.

A two-dimensional stage-structured population model with nonlinear cannibalism terms is studied. We show that there is a large parameter interval where the nontrivial equilibrium of the model is the only stable attractor, but that there also exist parameter intervals where we find quasiperiodic, periodic and chaotic dynamics. Moreover, in the interplay(More)
