OBJECTIVE To determine the susceptibility of Anopheles anthropophagus and Anopheles sinensis to deltamethrin and DDT in an area where different counter-measures had been adopted. METHODS The mortality of the vectors was examined by using the standardised WHO test. RESULTS The mortality for tentative diagnostic dose in An. anthropophagus to deltamethrin(More)
The development and screening of floating-type bait formulations designed to improve the activity of bacterial toxins against larval Anopheles is described. Floating and spreading abilities of carrier particles (wheat flour) were compared using corn oil, lecithin, and two products yielding surface films on water (Arosurf and Liparol). Mixtures containing 1(More)
OBJECTIVE Menin, encoded by the Men1 gene, is responsible for β-cell tumor formation in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1. Recently, Menin has been proven to negatively regulate β-cell proliferation in several mouse models, including hyperglycemia. However, it is unclear how glucose regulates Menin expression in β-cells.

A biomembrane was developed from pig peritoneum treated with 0.65% glutaraldehyde. This was evaluated for use as a dural substitute in an animal model and in a patient population. After being treated with the glutaraldehyde solution, the biomembrane lost its antigenicity while its collagen underwent an irreversible cross-linking reaction, causing it to(More)

By 1992 malaria morbidity in Hubei, China had decreased steadily to its lowest level since 1970. Much of this achievement was through an integration of the primary health services with malaria control activities. However, in some areas malaria has been unstable due to weaknesses in the three tier health network. This has particularly been at the township(More)
In this experimental study, grass carp were bred in rice field (1.9 fish/m2) to control mosquito larvae. 78 days after treatment, the larvae population of An. sinensis and Cu. tritaeniorhynchus dropped down by 87.4% and 80% respectively. Newly hatched 1-2 instar larvae accounted for 73.3% of the larvae remained in rice field after treatment. Eighty-nine(More)
