Filariasis in immigrants in Western Australia, including a case of chyluria recurring in seven pregnancies


, : Filariasis in immigrants in Western Australia, including a case of chyluria recurring in seven pregnancies. Medical Journal of Australia 2(20): 919-922

Six cases of filariasis in immigrants in Western Australia are recorded. Pathological features and long intervals between attacks of lymphangitis indicated that the death of the adult worms was probably responsible. Wuchereria bancrofti micro-filariae were demonstrated in 2 patients. The worms lived for more than 4 years in one case, more than 3 in two and more than 20 years in one. A case of chyluria recurring during 7 pregnancies is described.

In the paper, a chemiluminescence (CL) system was developed based on the catalytical effect of diperiodatocuprate (III) (DPC) on the 1,10-phenanthroline (phen)/hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) in the presence of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB)....

It is, therefore, important to incorporate the effects of hydrogen-bonding in studies of quantitative structure-act...
