Intestinal permeability of 246 early primary schoolchildren at 2 schools (106 of whom were infected with intestinal helminths) was assessed by using the lactulose/mannitol differential absorption test. The ratio of the urinary recoveries of lactulose and mannitol was determined after oral administration of a standard solution of the 2 sugars. Assessment of(More)
Stool examination, height and weight measurements were undertaken on 249 early primary school children at two schools in North-eastern Peninsular Malaysia. Helminth infected children were treated and follow-up anthropometric measurements and stool examination undertaken on all (n = 100) children at one of the schools 16 months later; to observe the(More)
It has been suggested that the 'ideal' measure of reliability of an examination is obtained by test and retest using the one examination on the same group of students. However, because of practical and theoretical arguments, most reported reliabilities for multiple choice examinations in medicine are actually measures of internal consistency. While(More)
Stool examination of 249 early primary schoolchildren at 2 schools in north-eastern peninsular Malaysia revealed that 73 were infected with Ascaris lumbricoides, 103 with Trichuris trichiura, and 18 with hookworms. Infected children were treated with a single dose of 400 mg of albendazole. The school attendance records during a 60 d period before treatment(More)
Mouse liver and kidney glucose-6-phosphatase levels were found to be decreased 24 h after administration of various doses of carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) when compared to controls. Liver glucose-6-phosphatase levels were always decreased to a greater extent than the kidney enzyme in mice given the same amount of CCl4. Administration of(More)
The Phase I and Phase II undergraduate teaching programmes of the School of Medical Sciences were reviewed at the end of the 1985/86 academic year. It was found that deviations from the School's philosophy had crept into the implementation process. Modifications were therefore made in Phase I and Phase II programmes with a view to:--(i) reducing content,(More)
Glucose-6-phosphatase levels were measured in livers and kidneys of control mice and mice fasted for 24, 48, and 72 h, respectively. The enzyme was assayed with and without deoxycholate supplementation. When assayed in the absence of deoxycholate, significant increases in liver enzyme levels was observed after fasting for 48 and 72 h, respectively. For the(More)
