Review of prevalence and distribution of schistosomiasis in Japan

, : Review of prevalence and distribution of schistosomiasis in Japan. Southeast Asian Journal of Tropical Medicine and Public Health 7(2): 137-143

After World War II there was an increase in the prevalence of schistosomiasis japonica in all of the endemic areas of Japan but a national control programme, including the use of molluscicides, lining of irrigation ditches through rice paddies with concrete and the reclamation of swampy areas by drainage and filling, begun around 1950, has drastically reduced the prevalence and distribution of the disease.

Stress response mechanisms that modulate the dynamics of tRNA degradation and accumulation from the cytoplasm to the nucleus have been studied in yeast, the rat hepatoma and human cells. In the current study, we investigated tRNA degradation and a...

Protein S (PS), a vitamin K-dependent glycoprotein, performs an important role in the anticoagulation cascade as a cofactor of protein C. Because of the presence of a pseudogene and two different forms of PS in the plasma, protein S deficiency (PS...

Excess intake of foods, particularly those with a high caloric content, results in obesity, a higher risk of allergy syndrome, and exacerbation of common adult-onset diseases. Conversely, food restriction reduces the incidence of such problems and...

We have studied the ability of a quaternary antihistamine, thiazinamium, to inhibit the nociceptive sensitization that occurs early, during the first hour, following intraplantar injection of the polysaccharide carrageenin in the rat. Parallel stu...
