Does health expenditure reduce infant mortality rates (IMRs)? To answer such important question we disaggregate health expenditure into private and public and divide the countries into two groups according to their level of development (income). The results obtained from employing OLS and panel data techniques on 160 countries show strong negative relation(More)
A combined supplement of vitamins B9 and B12 was reported to increase milk and milk component yields of dairy cows without effect on feed intake. The present study was undertaken to verify whether this supplementation positively modifies the pathways involved in milk and milk component synthesis. Thus, by studying the transcriptome activity in these(More)
The consensus of the aid effectiveness literature is that foreign aid is effective at spurring economic growth in recipient countries. However, economic growth is heterogeneous in nature, driven by a number of different activities within an economy. This paper contributes to the literature by disaggregating the Gross Domestic Product of recipients in order(More)
Total Factor Productivity (TFP) accounts for a sizable proportion of the income differences across countries. Two challenges remain to researchers aiming to explain these differences: on the one hand, TFP growth is hard to measure empirically; on the other hand, model uncertainty hampers consensus on its key determinants. This paper combines a(More)
This paper is a contribution to the aid effectiveness literature in two important fronts. Firstly, it develops a new database for project aid and programme aid disbursements for 104 developing countries, for the period of 1973-2001. Secondly, using this new dataset and, food aid and technical assistance data from the OECD-DAC database the paper re-examines(More)
This paper contributes to the empirics of aid and growth by investigating whether aid modality matters in explaining its effectiveness. For this purpose, we include the four main aid modalities (project aid, financial programme aid, technical assistance grants and food aid) as explanatory variables in an endogenous growth model. Using the GMM-SYS approach(More)
This paper examines the impact of foreign aid on public sector fiscal behaviour in Côte d’Ivoire. A special interest is the relationship between aid, debt servicing and debt, given that Côte d’Ivoire is a highly indebted country. The theoretical model employed differs from those of previous studies by highlighting the interaction between debt servicing and(More)
Methylmalonyl-CoA mutase (MCM) is an adenosylcobalamin-dependent enzyme that catalyses the interconversion of (2R)-methylmalonyl-CoA to succinyl-CoA. In humans, a deficit in activity of MCM, due to an impairment of intracellular formation of adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin results in a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations ranging from moderate to(More)
