A comparative serological and parasitological study of two villages where onchocerciasis is hyperendemic, in Mali (savanna zone) and in Ivory Coast (pre-forest zone). Relation with the severity of the illness


, : A comparative serological and parasitological study of two villages where onchocerciasis is hyperendemic, in Mali (savanna zone) and in Ivory Coast (pre-forest zone). Relation with the severity of the illness. Annales de la Societe Belge de Medecine Tropicale 62(4): 343-352

A comparative study of serological responses showed a statistically significant difference between the results obtained in 2 villages in which onchocerciasis (caused by Onchocerca volvulus) is hyperendemic.

The level of 15 kg P2O5/ha (Olsen's P) was the critical P level, below which a response by V. radiata t...

Measurement of the stable isotopes oxygen-18 and deuterium in water is an important tool to characterize aquifer recharge sources. In the driest areas of the Mediterranean, this application is of special interest due to the scarcity of water and t...

P120 catenin (p120ctn) belongs to the Armadillo family of proteins, which is implicated in cell-cell adhesion and signal transduction. Owing to alternative splicing and multiple translation initiation codons, several p120ctn isoforms can be expres...
