We studied three antimalarial treatments in Caala and Kuito, Angola, in 2002 and 2003. We tested chloroquine (CQ), amodiaquine (AQ) and sulfadoxine-pyrimethamine (SP) in Caala, and AQ, SP and the combinations AQ+artesunate (AQ+AS) and SP+artesunate (SP+AS) in Kuito. A total of 619 children (240 in Caala, 379 in Kuito) with uncomplicated Plasmodium(More)

UNLABELLED Thrombolytic therapy (TT) modifies the natural history of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) diminishing morbi-mortality rate. In recent studies, modification of infusion velocity, decreased the mortality 10 percentage points. OBJECTIVE Test if rt PA administration over an hour is safe and practical.

Serum inhibin, FSH, and testosterone levels were measured by radioimmunoassay in 36 normal human males, aged 8 to 63 years. Inhibin and FSH levels rose during 8 to 17 years to reach adult values. At these ages there is a significant direct linear correlation between serum FSH and inhibin levels (r = 0.81, p less than 0.01), whereas in adulthood the(More)
