BACKGROUND Scabies has been estimated to affect approximately 300 million people worldwide each year. Scabies rates are high and pose a significant public health problem in Fiji. Community-based comparison treatment trials have not been undertaken. We estimated scabies prevalence and compared the efficacy and tolerability of mass drug administration (MDA)(More)
Benzodiazepine (diazepam), triazolobenzodiazepines (brotizolam, triazolam) and platelet activating factor (PAF) antagonist (BN 52021) are administered to mice before acquisition and retrieval trials conducted using Morris water maze. Benzodiazepine has produced only anterograde amnesia and it has not produced retrograde amnesia. Triazolobenzodiazepines have(More)
