Three studies were carried out to determine the need, acceptability, and efficacy of adding mefloquine to artemisinin derivatives (AD) for the first-line treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria. The first was a retrospective study of 255 basic health workers which showed that their recommendation of AD to patients depended on their level of training.(More)
A longitudinal study on reinfection with Ascaris lumbricoides was continued on a random sample of 50% of the infected population following a horizontal cross-sectional study in Okpo village, near Rangoon. The study sample was again randomly divided into two subsamples, the six-month interval worming group and the 12-month interval worming group. Microscopic(More)
Malaria is one of the main health problems in the non-immune immigrant workers and army personnel of the malaria endemic areas in Myanmar. Due to changes in the vector bionomics and multiresistant strains of P. falciparum, chemoprophylaxis alone is not an effective means of control of malaria in them. So it is envisaged that the combined used of personal(More)
Structural health monitoring through field instrumentation has been carried out successfully on many highway bridges to monitor the short-term and long-term performance of structures. Properly designed and strategically placed instruments can help collect valuable data regarding the condition, the stress and strain, deflection, temperature gradients, and(More)
Certain failing enlarged ischemic hearts are difficult to treat by mammary implants, epicardiectomy, omental grafts. A new concept and operation has been experimentally tested, based upon the omental graft’s ability to form arteriolar communications with surrounding arteries within eight days. in animals, three coronary arteries were surrounded by ameroid(More)
The in vitro sensitivity of 26 isolates of Plasmodium falciparum from Rangoon and Tharrawaddy areas in Burma were studied on chloroquine, mefloquine and quinine. The results indicated that the parasites were highly resistant to chloroquine but sensitive to mefloquine and quinine. The existence of correlation of sensitivity to mefloquine and quinine was(More)
Serum and urine concentrations of fibrin (-ogen) degradation products (FDP) were estimated in 20 proven Russell's viper bite (RVB) cases with severe defribination. All patients had similar degrees of high serum FDP levels. However, the ten who developed into acute renal failure (ARF) had significantly (p < 0.001) higher urinary FDP levels than those who did(More)

The study was intended to develop a simple and reliable in vivo field test for monitoring of sensitivity of P.falciparum to antimalarials. The test is to be used as a built in sustainable monitoring system and applied at regular frequencies to provide guidance in developing a country-wide antimalarial drug policy. The study was conducted as a hospital based(More)
