, : Toxocariasis. Medicine International 1(2, Pt.2): 74-76

This audio-visual aid is intended for both veterinary and medical practitioners. The life-cycle of Toxocara canis in the dog and the clinical signs, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human toxocariasis (visceral larva migrans) are described on tape and in a booklet which are designed to be used simultaneously. A set of 17 photographic slides is also provided illustrating, for example, larval migration through tissue and the granulomas induced by such larvae in the human eye. Tape-slide programmes of this kind are a novel and attractive way of communicating information and this one in particular, being on a subject of considerable public concern, should be very instructive for medical and veterinary people and public health authorities, as well as the interested layman.

Treatment of 40 lines from five genera within the Triticeae with an 0.1% spray of the fungicide 4-tridecyl-2,6-dimethylmorpholin (Calixine), which controls Erysiphe graminis, resulted in chlorotic effects in some plants only.

Robust measurement of single quantum bits plays a key role in the realization of quantum computation and communication as well as in quantum metrology and sensing. We have implemented a method for the improved readout of single electronic spin qub...

We report a method for preparing cell-laden hydrogel tubes. This method uses a coaxial double-orifice spinneret, simpler than triple-orifice spinnerets which have been used for preparing similar constructs. The intended application was to create a...
