Comparative analysis between Caenorhabditis elegans and other nematode species offers a powerful approach to study gene function. C. elegans also has great potential as a surrogate expression system to study the function of genes from parasitic nematode species where transgenic methodologies are unavailable. However there is little information on the extent(More)
In the absence of a direct laboratory test of envenomation, there is a need for an alternative mechanism for the early recognition of envenomation following snake-bite in children. A severe clinical diathesis may result either from envenomation or from the release of an inappropriate tourniquet applied as 'first-aid' often several hours before presentation(More)
The Caenorhabditis elegans GATA transcription factor elt-1 has previously been shown to have a central role in the specification of hypodermal (epidermal) cell fates and acts several cell divisions before the birth of hypodermal cells. Here we report that elt-1 also has essential functions during subsequent development. Reporter gene studies show that elt-1(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of conservative management of amoebic liver abscesses. DESIGN A prospective study carried out over a 1-year period. SETTING Inpatients and outpatients in a tertiary referral institution. SUBJECTS Amoebic liver abscess was diagnosed on clinical, ultrasonographic, and serological features. All patients were(More)
