A new apparatus is described which serves to investigate the in vitro antibacterial activity of antibiotics as a function of different concentration time curves. The apparatus can be adjusted to simulate the biexponential serum level curves observed in vivo after oral or intramuscular administration. Preliminary studies were carried out with a cephalosporin(More)
The intestinal parasites of the schoolchildren from one rural area and one urban area, both on Pemba Island, Zanzibar, Tanzania, were surveyed within the framework of the local Helminth Control Programme. Stool samples were examined for helminth eggs and protozoa by quantitative (Kato-Katz) and concentration (formalin-ether) techniques. The results indicate(More)
Recently, 5 sibling species and 3 other phenotypes were identified in the genus Trichinella. Single primers of arbitrary nucleotide sequence were used to produce random amplified polymorphic DNA starting from decreasing amounts of Trichinella spiralis and Trichinella britovi DNA. Reproducible amplification products from 30 pg of DNA were obtained using 1 of(More)
The dichloroacetyl group, one of the functional groups responsible for the antibacterial activity of chloramphenicol, has been inserted into various amines, and the dichloroacetamido-derivatives obtained have been studied against E. histolytica EdM, Candida albicans ATCC 2091, Saccharomyces cerevisiae ATCC 7921, Aspergillus niger NRRL 3, Trichomonas(More)
1. New halogenated 1,4-naphthoquinones were synthesized and together with other known 1,4-naphthoquinones, were screened for antibacterial activity by a turbidimetric method, and for antifungal activity by the diffusion method on agar plates.2. The half-wave potentials and the influence on the oxidative phosphorylation of some of these compounds were(More)
