One of the most striking morphological transformations in vertebrate evolution is the transition from a lizardlike body form to an elongate, limbless (snakelike) body form. Despite its dramatic nature, this transition has occurred repeatedly among closely related species (especially in squamate reptiles), making it an excellent system for studying(More)
Malarial anemia (MA) is a multifactorial disease for which the complex etiological basis is only partially defined. The association of clinical, nutritional, demographic, and socioeconomic factors with parasitemia, anemia, and MA was determined for children presenting at a hospital in a holoendemic area of Plasmodium falciparum transmission in western(More)
BACKGROUND The molecular immunological interactions between HIV and malaria are largely undefined. Since tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha is elevated during acute malaria and increases with HIV-1 disease progression, TNF-alpha production may be an important mediator for interactions between malaria and HIV-1. METHODS To examine the stage-specific(More)
BACKGROUND Gallbladder pathology (GBP) is a relatively uncommon, naturally occurring morbidity in both baboons and humans. METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed on 7776 necropsy reports over a 20 year period to determine the prevalence of baboon GBP. RESULTS Ninety-seven cases of GBP were identified, yielding a 20 year population prevalence of(More)
