Plasmodium falciparum is the most prevalent and lethal of the malaria parasites infecting humans, yet the origin and evolutionary history of this important pathogen remain controversial. Here we develop a single-genome amplification strategy to identify and characterize Plasmodium spp. DNA sequences in faecal samples from wild-living apes. Among nearly(More)
Like human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), simian immunodeficiency virus of chimpanzees (SIVcpz) can cause CD4+ T cell loss and premature death. Here, we used molecular surveillance tools and mathematical modeling to estimate the impact of SIVcpz infection on chimpanzee population dynamics. Habituated (Mitumba and Kasekela) and non-habituated(More)
Pentostatin (2'-deoxycoformycin) is a unique antineoplastic agent that has proven valuable in the treatment of a number of lymphoid malignancies. Dose-limiting toxicities observed in clinical trials include central nervous system (CNS) effects and acute renal failure. Information regarding the incidence, duration, and severity of nausea and vomiting from(More)
Location based games offer opportunities for us to learn more about peoples interactions and feelings towards the environment they are in as well as to understand more about the mental models and locations associated with known environments e.g. a university campus with its associations of learning. In our study we wanted to manipulate the activities in a(More)
The objectives of abdominal hernial repair are to reconstruct the structural integrity of the abdominal wall while minimizing morbidity. Current techniques include primary closure, staged repair, and the use of prosthetic materials. Techniques for abdominoplasty include the use of the transverse lower abdominal incision and the resection of excess skin. By(More)
