Study of the pelvic morphology in three groups of Congolese women

, : Study of the pelvic morphology in three groups of Congolese women. Ann Soc Belg Med Trop Parasitol Mycol 47(3): 231-241

The results are given of a radio-pelvimetric study of Bantu women living in Kinshasa (ex-Leopoldville) but who originated from other regions of the Congo. The different types of pelves classified according to Thorns gave percentages very similar to those established by Torpin et al. for the American Negro woman. The total number of cases (348) were divided into 3 groups, belonging to various ethnic groups: Lower Congo, South Kasai, and South Equatorial. No significant differences in the morphology of the pelvis were seen among the groups studied.

Non-motile enteroinvasive Escherichia coli (EIEC) is serotyped based only on O antigen polymorphism, since H antigen epitopes, present on the flagellins, cannot be characterised in these bacteria. In this study, we demonstrate the presence of the...

Human alpha1-antitrypsin was isolated with preserved microheterogeneity from subjects of Pi types M, S and MMalton. The M-protein was partially (20%) and completely desialylated. The proteins were labelled with either 125I or 131I. 2. The disap...
