Malaria is a significant health risk to refugee populations originating from endemic areas, but there is little consensus on screening and/or treatment approaches for malaria in this population. Furthermore, detection of malaria in semi-immune asymptomatic refugees is limited by the sensitivity of diagnostic tests used for screening. We determined the(More)
Five patients with optic ataxia together with tactile apraxia are described. They also demonstrated difficulty in finger movements under visual guidance. The CT scan showed lesions in the posterior parietal region in three and in two they were located anteriorly. It is well recognised that lesions in the posterior parietal area may cause disruption of(More)
Bronchiolitis obliterans organizing pneumonia (BOOP) is rarely associated with dermatomyositis and may be resistant to conventional corticosteroid therapy under this circumstance. We present a case of BOOP associated with dermatomyositis that responded to a combination of cyclophosphamide and corticosteroid therapy after corticosteroid treatments, alone,(More)
The relationship between squamous carcinoma of the cervix and oral contraceptive use has been examined in a substantial number of epidemiological studies. On balance there is reasonably convincing evidence that prolonged oral contraceptive use slightly increases the risk of the disease, but some doubt remains as to whether or not confounding factors have(More)
We assessed the presence of an alpha 1-adrenoceptor-mediated coronary vasoconstrictor reflex response during acute systemic hypoxia in eight chloralose-anesthetized dogs. We avoided local vasodilator responses to myocardial and coronary hypoxia and to circulating factors by perfusing the left common coronary artery at constant pressure with normoxic blood(More)
