Taenia solium is a predominant food-borne parasitic zoonosis (FBPZ) in Nepal. Using the PRECEDE framework, as defined by Green and Kreuter, we can identify the factors behind the high incidence of this disease. Armed with this information, we can define the actions necessary to control T. solium. In accordance with the first step of PRECEDE, social(More)
Age changes in the specific activity of cerebral succinic dehydrogenase (SDH) and the effect of two inhibitors (malonate and p-chlorophenoxy acetic acid) on enzyme activity were traced in a short-lived species of reptile, Calotes versicolor, the garden lizard. The enzyme activity reached a peak level in middle-aged lizards followed by a decline in old(More)
Keeping in view of high prevalence of tuberculosis in far western development region in different reports, a door to door survey of 125 household was carried out randomly in Mahendra Nagar municipality ward no 13 of Kanchanpur district to pick up symptomatics suggestive of pulmonary tuberculosis and find the prevalence in the target population. A total of(More)
In the present study we observed that the cerebral glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase activity of male garden lizards did not change appreciably during maturation but showed a significant rise between middle-aged and old-aged groups. Whereas cold stress (1 h at 0-4 degrees C) induced a significant increase in G6PDH activity of young animals, it caused a(More)
In the male garden lizard, the glucose uptake of cerebral hemisphere slices did not change during maturation (young to middle-aged) but declined during ageing (middle-aged to old). Short-term starvation (3 days) did not cause a significant change in glucose uptake of cerebral hemisphere of young lizards but led to an increase in the parameter in both the(More)
