Cognitive function in patients with diabetes mellitus: guidance for daily care
Diabetes mellitus is associated with an increase in the risk of dementia and the proportion of patients who convert from mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to dementia. In addition to MCI and dementia,Expand
Morphological and molecular characterisation of several Paratylenchus Micoletzky, 1922 (Tylenchida: Paratylenchidae) species from South Africa and USA, together with some taxonomic notes
Pin nematodes of the genus Paratylenchus are widely distributed across the world and associated with many plant species. Morphological identification of Paratylenchus species is a difficult taskExpand
Molecular phylogeny, diagnostics, and diversity of plant‐parasitic nematodes of the genus Hemicycliophora (Nematoda: Hemicycliophoridae)
The genus Hemicycliophora (Nematoda: Hemicycliophoridae) contains 132 valid species of plant-parasitic nematodes, collectively known as ‘sheath nematodes’. Hemicycliophora spp. are characterizedExpand
Hirschmanniella caribbeana sp. n. and new records of Pratylenchus spp. (Pratylenchidae: Nematoda) from Guadeloupe, French West Indies
Hirschmanniella caribbeana sp. n. is described and figured from mangrove vegetation from Guadeloupe. Females are characterised by the tail terminus having two lateral peg-like projections with aExpand
Markers of low-grade inflammation and endothelial dysfunction are related to reduced information processing speed and executive functioning in an older population – the Hoorn Study
Low-grade inflammation and endothelial dysfunction are related to cognitive decline and dementia, in a complex interplay with vascular factors and aging. We investigated, in an older population,Expand
Diversity and phylogenetic relationships within the spiral nematodes of Helicotylenchus Steiner, 1945 (Tylenchida: Hoplolaimidae) as inferred from analysis of the D2-D3 expansion segments of 28S rRNA
The spiral nematodes of the genus Helicotylenchus are globally distributed and associated with the root system of diverse groups of plants in cultivated and uncultivated areas. Several species areExpand
Morphological and molecular characterisation and diagnostics of some species of Scutellonema Andrassy, 1958 (Tylenchida: Hoplolaimidae) with a molecular phylogeny of the genus
Scutellonema spp. are widely distributed across tropical and subtropical regions of the world and are associated with numerous agricultural and horticultural crops. Identification of manyExpand
Characterisation of some Scutellonema species (Tylenchida: Hoplolaimidae) occurring in Botswana, South Africa, Costa Rica and the USA, with description of S. clavicaudatum sp. n. and a molecular
The genus Scutellonema contains more than 40 species of spiral nematodes with enlarged phasmids called scutella. In this study, we provide morphological and molecular characterisation of S.Expand
Hoplolaimidae Filip'ev, 1934 (Nemata) from Rwandan banana fields.
During a survey of banana fields in Rwanda, eight species of Hoplolaimidae were collected, viz. Helicotylenchus dihysteral/ig (Cobb, 1893) Sher, 1961, Helicotylenchus egyptiensisl/ig Tarjan, 1964,Expand
