Evaluation of the pulmonary effects of short-term nose-only cigarette smoke exposure in mice
It is indicated that short-term nose-only exposure to CS causes lung inflammation and increase of airway resistance mediated at least partly through the oxidative stress.
Haemogregarina sp. (Apicomplexa: Adeleorina) from the geckoTarentola annularis in the Sudan: fine structure and life-cycle trials
The ubiquitous geckoTarentola annularis in the area around Khartoum, Sudan, was found to be infected withHaemogregarina sp., with merogonic stages in its pulmonary endothelial cells and gamonts in

The fine structure of an early stage in the process of fertilization of E. maxima is described, with a microgamete, consisting of a nucleus, a mitochondrion, microtubules, an attached flagellum, and a free flagella, seen in contact with a young macrogamete.

Light and scanning electron micrographs showed that P. tarentolae belongs to the group of Physalopteroides species with pronounced dentition on the right pseudolabium, and is distinguished by the absence of spicules, the presence of 11 pairs of symmetrically arranged pedunculate caudal papillae.
Chloroquine-resistant Plasmodium falciparum in eastern Sudan.
In vivo and in vitro testing of the sensitivity of Plasmodium falciparum to chloroquine found the persistance of parasitaemia and symptoms were highly correlated in patients with RIII responses and epidemics with intense transmission caused by heavy rains following the drought could have greatly enhanced the emergence and spread of resistant strains.
Antigens shared by Leishmania species and Trypanosoma cruzi: immunological comparison of the acidic ribosomal P0 proteins
This work cloned and characterized full-length genomic and cDNA clones encoding a Leishmania chagasi acidic ribosomal antigen, LcP0, recognized during human infections and showed that it is the first characterized deviation from the restricted immunodominant C-terminal epitope involved in the generation of anti-P0 antibodies following infection or autoimmune diseases.
Attenuated EAN in TNF-α Deficient Mice Is Associated with an Altered Balance of M1/M2 Macrophages
It is shown that the clinical severity of WT mice treated with anti-TNFR1 antibodies was less severe than that of the control WT mice receiving PBS, and no difference with regard to the clinical signs of EAN or inflammatory infiltration in cauda equina was seen.
Leishmania tarentolae Wenyon, 1921 from the gecko Tarentola annularis in the Sudan
Ce travail decrit pour la premiere fois la structure fine de L. tarentolae du gecko T. annularis du Soudan. L. tarentolae a seulement ete rapporte chez T. mauritanica et Cryptodactylus Kotschyi
Early pulmonary events of nose-only water pipe (shisha) smoking exposure in mice
It is concluded that subacute, nose‐only exposure to WPS causes lung inflammation and oxidative stress without affecting pulmonary function suggesting that inflammation and antioxidant stress are early markers of WPS exposure that precede airway dysfunction.
