Data taken together suggest that xanthatin exerts its biological activity by inducing apoptosis and inhibiting both PGE2 synthesis and 5‐lipoxygenase activity thereby avoiding unwanted inflammation commonly observed in diseases such as trypanosomiasis.
Prevalence of intestinal parasitic infections and associated risk factors among pregnant women attending antenatal care center at Felege Hiwot Referral Hospital, northwest Ethiopia
A relatively high prevalence of intestinal parasite infections was observed among pregnant women and routine stool examination and provision of health education are required for early medical intervention that would affect the pregnant mothers and their foetuses.
Seroprevalence of hepatitis B surface antigen and anti HCV antibody and its associated risk factors among pregnant women attending maternity ward of Felege Hiwot Referral Hospital, northwest…
This study found an intermediate endemicity (4.4 %) of HBV infection in pregnant women whereas seroprevalence of anti-HCV antibody was very small, but this needs to be confirmed by other similar studies with larger sample size.
