The study population comprised residents aged 21-65 years living in 675 randomly sampled housing units. The(More)
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)
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)
junctional epidermolysis bullosa, by transplantation of genetically modified epidermal stem cells (Gache et al., 2003). In this case we have shown that our two-step approach, using an initial dermal matrix and then applying cultured keratinocytes and fibroblasts as a composite graft, permits the reconstruction of stable skin and coverage of large skin(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)
