Nine adult albino rats of both sexes were studied. 16 sympathetic trunks and ganglia were dissected in detail in eight rats. The right and left superior cervical ganglion and the sympathetic trunk below the ganglion were removed from an additional rat. The cell bodies of these ganglia and the axons of the trunks were counted with the aid of light and(More)
Transmission of forest-related malaria was observed entomologically and epidemiologically for 2 transmission seasons in 1990 and 1991 in 5 villages of Mae Sariang district, Mae Hong Son Province, north-west Thailand. The entomological study included collections of mosquitos and determination of infection rate by using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in(More)
A field trial compared DDT house-spraying with permethrin-impregnated bednets for malaria control in Solomon Islands from 1987 to 1991. Mortality-rates of malaria vector Anopheles farauti in exit window traps were 11.6% from an untreated hut, 10.1% from a hut sprayed with DDT 2 g/m2, and 98% of those from a hut in which the occupants used bednets treated(More)
On the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the death ofAlbert Kuntz (1879–1957), it is fitting that his great accomplishments be remembered. Present knowledge of the autonomic nervous system has been acquired and recorded over a long period of time. The contributions have been made by many investigators, from the crude observations of the early workers(More)
It was unknown whether the main reservoir of Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax, which infects mosquitoes in Thailand, was (a) in people feeling sufficiently ill with malaria to come to a clinic or (b) in people who had remained in their home villages with some fever symptoms or with none. Mass surveys were carried out in Thai villages to identify(More)
In the last six years, there has been a steady reduction of Plasmodium vivax malaria in Hubei Province with an API (annual parasite incidence) of 0.134 per thousand by 1992. This is especially so in the south, east, west and north-west parts of the province. Much of this reduction has been produced by a policy of repeated radical treatment in the(More)
