The objective of this prospective study was to examine the effect of fluid restriction on body water and the outcome of children with acute meningitis. Fifty consecutively hospitalized children with acute meningitis, divided into two groups (A, without hyponatremia; and B, with hyponatremia), were randomly assigned to receive either normal maintenance (M)(More)
Children with acute bronchiolitis frequently require hospitalization and parenteral fluid therapy. Water retention due to impaired renal water excretion has been described in several pulmonary conditions in children. We studied 20 infants (3.6 +/- 2.9 months), hospitalized consecutively for acute bronchiolitis for water and electrolyte changes during the(More)
Indigenous species of actinorhizal plants of Casuarinaceae, Elaeagnaceae and Rhamnaceae are found in specific regions of Australia. Most of these plants belong to Casuarinaceae, the dominant actinorhizal family in Australia. Many of them have significant environmental and economical value. The other two families with their indigenous actinorhizal plants(More)
The status and kinetics of monocyte activation during acute P. knowlesi infection was investigated by latex-induced, luminol-dependent chemiluminescence (CL) response. The contribution of various reactive oxygen species (ROS) to CL response was estimated before infection and at peak parasitaemia (day 7 post infection) by using scavengers of ROS (benzoate,(More)
The mechanism of copper in limiting intrauterine infections in intrauterine device (Cu IUD) users is poorly understood. Copper ions may enhance the release of reactive oxygen radicals, which in turn decrease the release of reactive nitrogen intermediates (RNI). RNI are known to have bactericidal effect. The present study compares the levels of RNI prior to(More)
