The pathology of bilharziasis in Hippopotamus amphibius


, : The pathology of bilharziasis in Hippopotamus amphibius. S. Afr. med. J, 39: 1026

All of 100 hippopotamus taken at Kruger National Park in winter 1964 had schistosomiasis. S. edwardiensis (tentatively) and S. hippopotami were detected, the latter being most numerous. The parasites were widely distributed in the systemic and visceral circulation and in the heart. Endovasculitis and endophlebitis were extensive and a proliferatiye endocarditis was also present.

The statistical properties of the estimated eye aberrations differ in general from the actual ones owing to the cross coupling and aliasing generated in the estimation process. In particular, the estimated Zernike aberration coefficients may show...

Background: Proanthocyanidins, the most abundant polyphenols in chocolate, are not depolymerized in the stomach and reach the small intestine intact, where they are hardly absorbed because of their high molecular weight. In vitro and in vivo studi...

The loss of effectiveness of ischaemic preconditioning in protecting old hearts from ischaemia/reperfusion damage is thought to be due to low sirtuin 1 levels in old hearts. We sought to determine whether resveratrol (RES), an activator of sirtuin...
