In Schistosoma mansoni infections, parasite-derived eggs get trapped in the liver, causing the formation of granulomas, which may develop into periportal fibrosis and portal hypertension, and thus severe morbidity. Eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) is a(More)
Hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSP) are the second most common type of motor neuron disease recognized worldwide. We investigated a total of 25 consanguineous families from Sudan. We used next-generation sequencing to screen 74 HSP-related genes in 23 families. Linkage analysis and candidate gene sequencing was performed in two other families. We(More)
Materials and methods This study was designed to investigate the involvement of WT1 gene mutation in the development of Acute Myeloid Leukemia in Sudan. The study involved 51 patients and 75 healthy controls. Genomic DNA was isolated from peripheral blood leukocytes using salting out method. PCR amplification of the target sequence (214 bp) within exon7 of(More)
