Intestinal helminthic infection among children at Lake Awassa Area, South Ethiopia


, : Intestinal helminthic infection among children at Lake Awassa Area, South Ethiopia. Ethiopian Journal of Health Development 15(1): 31-37

A cross sectional coproparasitological study was conducted during November 1998 among 150 children (age <15 years) engaged in fishing and fish processing in Awassa, Southern Ethiopia. All study subjects were screened for fish tapeworm and other intestinal helminthic infections. Faecal samples were examined microscopically using direct smear, Formol ether concentration and zinc sulfate flotation techniques. Overall prevalence for at least one helminth infection was 92.7%.

We cloned cDNA of betaig-h3, a TGF-beta responsive gene, from the caprine uterus by RT-PCR method combined with the 5'- and 3'- RACE. The caprine betaig-h3 cDNA contains a single open reading frame (ORF) encoding a 683-amino-acid protein...

Thirty minutes after excised barley-seedling roots had been placed in water containing tritium, almost all the free water in the roots was replaced by heavy water. After 80 min 17% of the bound water in the roots had been replaced. Addition of din...

Almost a decade of GWAS studies suggests t...

Sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) partly accounts for antiatherogenic properties of high-density lipoproteins. We previously demonstrated that FTY720, a synthetic S1P analog targeting all S1P receptors but S1P receptor type 2, inhibits murine atherosc...
