Geographical location and age affects the incidence of parasitic infestations in school children.
TLDR
Overall, comparative significant differences were noted between rural and urban children for E. trichiura infections in urban children, and the prevalence of different pathogenic species of amoeba such as Entamoeba histolyticaSuch findings may be related to dietary differences, living conditions and the greater use of natural anti-helminthic medicinal plants in rural communities.

The effects of laser irradiation on osteoblast and osteosarcoma cell proliferation and differentiation in vitro.
TLDR
It is concluded that each cell line responds differently to specific wavelength and dose combinations, and the physiological mechanisms responsible for the contrasting outcomes obtained when using laser irradiation on cultured normal and malignant bone cells are investigated. Expand
The effects of saturated fatty acids on Giardia duodenalis trophozoites in vitro
TLDR
This study has opened fresh avenues for development of natural drug therapy in which food supplementation may augment, or even replace, some of the standard chemotherapeutic agents presently employed in the treatment of giardiasis and possibly other infectious intestinal diseases. Expand
Giardia infection in budgerigars.
TLDR
This study extends the known host range for Giardia in Australia to include budgerigars, and confirms the species was G psittaci, which showed signs of retarded growth, dehydration and diarrhoea in chicks. Expand
The effect of laser irradiation on proliferation of human breast carcinoma, melanoma, and immortalized mammary epithelial cells.
TLDR
Although certain doses of laser increased MCF-7 cell proliferation, multiple exposures had either no effect or showed negative dose response relationships, and no sign of malignant transformation of cells by laser phototherapy was detected under the conditions applied here. Expand
Lethal Giardia from a wild-caught sulphur-crested cockatoo (Cacatua galerita) established in vitro chronically infects mice.
TLDR
This is the first report of infection of mammals with Giardia isolated from a bird, and these data may have potentially serious implications for contamination of watersheds and establishment of zoonotic infections. Expand
Giardia duodenalis trophozoites isolated from a parrot (Cacatua galerita) colonize the small intestinal tracts of domestic kittens and lambs.
TLDR
The results describe the first successful colonization of avian-derived G. duodenalis trophozoites in the small intestines of domestic kittens and lambs, indicating that some bird species may carry G.duodinalis that represent a possible health threat to companion animals and livestock. Expand
Virulent Avian Giardia duodenalis Pathogenic for Mice.
TLDR
Data is presented on pathogenic avian Giardia with he potential to contaminate watersheds and the implications to discuss the implications. Expand
An examination of the antibacterial, antifungal, anti-Giardial and anticancer properties of Kigelia africana fruit extracts
TLDR
Traditional African therapeutic usage of K. africana in the treatment of several bacterial, fungal and protozoal illnesses and some cancers is validated, and its use in treating a variety of diseases is validated. Expand
Effect of 830 nm laser phototherapy on osteoblasts grown in vitro on Biosilicate scaffolds.
TLDR
Despite successful seeding of bioscaffolds with osteoblasts, laser phototherapy resulted in a reduction in cell growth compared to non-irradiated controls, and future research combining laser Phototherapy and glass-ceramic scaffolds should take into account possible interactions of the laser with matrix compounds.
