6 out of 7 patients with severe neutropenia associated with the use of amodiaquine for malaria prophylaxis amodiaquine (400 mg weekly) plus proguanil (200 mg daily); 1 of these patients had also taken cotrimoxazole and another had taken sulphaguanidine. The 7th patient had taken amodiaquine alone, but at a higher dose. A retrospective analysis suggests that(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence suggests that mild head injuries in humans can result in cumulative damage. No investigation to date has considered the effects of multiple subacute mild head injuries in an animal model. METHODS Forty-one male Long-Evans hooded rats were trained in a Morris water maze. All animals were fitted with a hollow intracranial screw.(More)
The monophyly and evolution of Cynara was investigated using ITS sequence data. Parsimony analysis supports the monophyly of Cynara sensu lato, i.e. including the distinctive taxa C. humilis and C. tournefortii. This contradicts the recent decision to create a new monotypic genus Arcyna for C. tournefortii. A hypothesised close relationship between C.(More)
Peptides were synthesized based on the cleavage sites in the adenovirus type 2 proteins pVI and pVII. The synthetic peptides were incubated with disrupted, purified adenovirus as a source of proteinase and specific cleavages were monitored by fast protein liquid chromatography and amino acid analysis. Using this approach it was established that all the(More)
The plethora of recombinant lymphokines that have recently become available has led to renewed hope for an immunotherapeutic solution to cancer. Many lymphokines, either singly or in combination, have already shown promise in animal trials and in preliminary human trials. Systemic lymphokine toxicity has been the major constraint on this type of therapy,(More)
We report a case of preleukemic granulocytic sarcoma of the small intestine preceding the development of acute myelomonocytic leukemia with abnormal eosinophils and inversion of chromosome 16, inv(16)(p13q22). A literature review suggests that this is a recurring cytogenetic-clinicopathologic association and carries a favorable prognosis, especially if(More)
We used ITS and trnL sequence data, analyzed separately and combined by MP, to explore species relationships and concepts in Trema (Celtidaceae), a pantropical genus of pioneer trees. Whether Trema is monophyletic or includes Parasponia is still unresolved. Three clades within Trema received moderate to high support, one from the New World and two from the(More)
