The present study has demonstrated the presence of circulating reverse tri-iodothyronine (rT3) levels and its main generating pathway in rainbow trout. A specific rT3, RIA using thyronine-stripped sera in the standard curve was standardised, allowing precise and accurate quantification of radioimmunoassayable rT3. We also demonstrated that trout skin is an(More)
Several decades of research have revealed that the etiology of drug abuse comprises a complex network of interactive social, biologic, and genetic factors, which exhibits different levels of salience across development. There are several excellent summaries of the extensive literature on risk factors for drug use (Brook et al. 1990; Clayton 1992; Dembo et(More)
BACKGROUND Hypertension is a significant risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and epidemiological evidence suggests that it is increasing in parallel with obesity in children and adolescents in low- and middle-income countries. AIM To identify and determine the relationship between overweight, obesity and hypertension in a community sample of school(More)
Ultrasound-induced blood stasis was demonstrated thirty years ago. Most of the literature has been focused on methods employed to prevent stasis from occurring during ultrasound imaging. The current work discusses some of the theory behind this phenomenon. It also demonstrates ultrasound-induced blood stasis in murine tumor and muscle tissue, observed(More)
BACKGROUND Non-communicable disease (NCD) is increasing rapidly in low and middle-income countries (LMIC), and is associated with tobacco use, unhealthy diet and physical inactivity. There is little evidence for up-scaled interventions at the population level to reduce risk in LMIC. METHODS The Community Interventions for Health (CIH) program was a(More)
