In this era of de-institutionalization, it is incumbent on the mental health profession to develop techniques to treat disorders of the schizophrenic spectrum that are as effective as possible and cost efficient. Such techniques are most likely to be useful to the degree that they can be constructed on a critical analysis of research relevant to the nature(More)
The benefits of technological advances continue to accrue at an ever accelerating rate. In 1987 I presented a brief review of recent advances and applications of biotechnology to the study of arthropods and disease-vector relationships. Since 1987 progress has been made in practically all areas included in that earlier review and I want to give brief(More)
Current methods for detecting and identifying filariae in mosquitoes are laborious and time consuming. With today's technology, we can reasonably expect development of rapid, sensitive and specific assays for detecting and identifying filariae in naturally infected mosquito populations. Progress in developing such assays is reviewed.
Biotechnological advances are rapidly being applied to the study of arthropods and arthropod-born diseases. Improved tools are available for species identification, study of species complexes, detection and identification of pathogens in vectors and detection and characterization of insecticide resistance. These techniques have their basis in hybridoma, DNA(More)
