Much of the regulation of astrocyte reactivity, however, remains to be understood. Using genetic loss and gain-of-function analyses in vivo, we show that the conserved MAP3K13 (also known as leucine zipper-bearing kinase [LZK]) promotes astrocyte reactivity and glial scar formation after CNS injury. Inducible LZK gene deletion in astrocytes of adult mice reduced astrogliosis and impaired glial scar formation, resulting in increased ...
Twelve cases of yellow fever have been confirmed in the Ivory Coast, making it the second such outbreak in an African country in recent months. In a statement today the World Health Organization (WHO) said the country notified the agency of the cases on Jan 3. Infections have been detected in central and northern regions. A mid-January field investigation by Ivory Coasts health ministry, with assistance from the WHO, identified 64 suspected cases, along with 25 deaths. The Ivory Coast launched an emergency vaccination campaign on Jan 22 targeting 840,000 people ages 9 months and older in four districts. The WHO said the four districts are among 61 that were singled out to receive vaccine in a disease-prevention campaign last year, which could not be held due to political problems. Uganda reported a yellow fever outbreak in October, its first in nearly 40 years. A vaccine campaign targeting the northern part of the country started on Jan 22 ...

Cote dIvoire is among the worlds largest producers and exporters of coffee, cocoa beans, and palm oil. Consequently, the economy is highly sensitive to fluctuations in international prices for these products and to weather conditions. Despite government attempts to diversify the economy, it is still largely dependent on agriculture and related activities, which engage roughly 68% of the population. After several years of lagging performance, the Ivorian economy began a comeback in 1994, due to the 50% devaluation of the CFA franc and improved prices for cocoa and coffee, growth in nontraditional primary exports such as pineapples and rubber, limited trade and banking liberalization, offshore oil and gas discoveries, and generous external financing and debt rescheduling by multilateral lenders and France. Moreover, government adherence to donor-mandated reforms led to a jump in growth to 5% annually during 1996-99. Growth was negative in 2000 and 2001 because of the ...

Abidjan (French pronunciation: ​[abidʒɑ̃]) is the economic capital of Côte dIvoire and is one of the most populous French-speaking cities in Africa. According to the 2014 Côte dIvoire census, Abidjans population was 4.7 million, which is 20 percent of the overall population of the country, and this also makes it the fourth most populous city proper in Africa, after Lagos, Cairo and Kinshasa. Considered the cultural crossroads of Africa, Abidjan is characterised by a high level of industrialisation and urbanisation. The city expanded quickly after the construction of a new wharf in 1931, followed by its designation as the capital city of the then-French colony in 1933. Abidjan remained the capital of Côte dIvoire after its independence from France in 1960. The completion of the Vridi Canal in 1951 enabled Abidjan to become an important sea port. In 1983, the city of Yamoussoukro was designated as the official political capital of Cote ...

The Caenorhabditis elegans Regulator of Presynaptic Morphology (RPM)-1 is a member of a conserved family of proteins called Pam/Highwire/RPM-1 (PHR) proteins. PHR proteins are key regulators of neuronal development. In C. elegans, RPM-1 (regulator of presynaptic morphology-1) regulates axon termination and guidance in the mechanosensory neurons, and regulates synapse formation in the mechanosensory and motor neurons (Po et al., 2010). In adult C. elegans, RPM-1 also plays a role in axon regeneration in motor neurons (Hammarlund et al., 2009). Importantly, Drosophila Highwire, zebrafish Esrom/Phr1, and murine Phr1 also regulate synapse formation and axon extension highlighting the evolutionarily conserved function of the PHR proteins (Po et al., 2010).. Previous studies showed that RPM-1 functions, in part, as an E3 ubiquitin ligase by binding to the F box SyNaptic protein (FSN)-1 and negatively regulating a MAPK pathway that includes: the Dual Leucine zipper-bearing Kinase (DLK)-1, MAPK Kinase ...
Hsp27, a small heat-shock protein, has important roles in many cellular processes, including cytoskeleton dynamics, cell differentiation, and apoptosis. Its expression in normal epidermis correlates with differentiation; however, little is known about the regulatory mechanisms involved. In this study, we report that Hsp27 undergoes upregulation, phosphorylation, and redistribution to the cytoskeleton during the late phase of epidermal keratinocyte differentiation. Our results also show that the expression of the dual leucine zipper-bearing kinase (DLK), an upstream activator of the MAP kinase pathways, is sufficient by itself to induce Hsp27 phosphorylation, cell periphery localization, and redistribution to the insoluble protein fraction (cytoskeleton) in poorly differentiated keratinocytes. This redistribution correlates with the insolubilization of cornified envelope-associated proteins such as involucrin. Interestingly, the effects of DLK on Hsp27 were blocked by PD98059, a selective ...
From 5 - 15 June 2017, ALMA supported the Ministry of Health of Cote DIvoire to develop two scorecard management tools for action & accountability: one for malaria control and elimination and another for reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (RMNCAH). The tool facilitates better profiling and monitoring of priority indicators, which in turn ensures prioritization of gaps for decision makers.

Political unrest in Côte dIvoire (Ivory Coast) has forced health workers to postpone a nationwide campaign to vaccinate residents against yellow fever. The drive, sponsored by the World Health Organization and the United Nations Childrens Fund, has been delayed twice, according to IRIN news service.. Yellow fever is a lethal illness borne by mosquitoes that has been killing people in the northern-central area of Côte dIvoire The immunization drive was originally scheduled for late November, around the same time as the nations presidential election.. Although the UN and other international entities have recognized opponent candidate Alassane Ouattara as the winner of the November 28 election, presidential incumbent Laurent Gbagbo refuses to step down. Violent clashes between supporters of the two rivals in Abidjan, the nations commercial capital, have made traveling unsafe..

Serine/threonine-protein kinase which acts as an essential component of the MAP kinase signal transduction pathway. Acts as a MAPK kinase kinase kinase (MAP4K) and is an upstream activator of the stress-activated protein kinase/c-Jun N-terminal kinase (SAP/JNK) signaling pathway and to a lesser extent of the p38 MAPKs signaling pathway. Required for the efficient activation of JNKs by TRAF6-dependent stimuli, including pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) such as polyinosine-polycytidine (poly(IC)), lipopolysaccharides (LPS), lipid A, peptidoglycan (PGN), or bacterial flagellin. To a lesser degree, IL-1 and engagement of CD40 also stimulate MAP4K2-mediated JNKs activation. The requirement for MAP4K2/GCK is most pronounced for LPS signaling, and extends to LPS stimulation of c-Jun phosphorylation and induction of IL-8. Enhances MAP3K1 oligomerization, which may relieve N-terminal mediated MAP3K1 autoinhibition and lead to activation following autophosphorylation. Mediates also the SAP/JNK

They are estimated to be the largest Lebanese diaspora in West Africa.. H.K.. M.T.. ...
The varicella-zoster virus (VZV) which causes herpes zoster (HZ), or shingles, is associated with a painful skin rash and post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). The incidence and severity of HZ and PHN increase as immune function decreases, as in elderly or HIV-infected people. The live VZV vaccine, ZOSTAVAX, has been shown to reduce the incidence and severity of HZ and PHN in people over the age of 60. The main purpose of this study is to determine whether a two-dose regimen of ZOSTAVAX is safe and well-tolerated in HIV-infected individuals with conserved immune function.. This study has two stages and two arms. It may last up to 24 weeks per subject. In Stage 1, 48 participants with CD4 cell counts of 200 or more cells/uL will be enrolled (24 participants with a CD4 count between 200 and 349 cells/uL and 24 participants with a CD4 count equaling 350 or more cells/uL). These participants will be randomized 3:1 to receive two doses of ZOSTAVAX or placebo at least six weeks apart. If certain safety ...
Both antiretroviral therapy (ART) and prevention of opportunistic infections (OIs) have been associated with significantly decreased mortality in HIV-infected individuals. Trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMZ), also known as bactrim, is a common antibiotic and used as prophylaxis for OIs. For countries with high prevalence of HIV and limited health infrastructure, the WHO endorses universal TMP/SMZ for all HIV-infected individuals. Notably, these guidelines were created prior to the scale-up of ARTs. Following ART and subsequent immune recovery, TMP/SMZ may no longer be required. In the US and Europe, for example, TMP/SMZ is discontinued after patients show evidence of immune recovery. Therefore, we propose a prospective randomized trial among HIV infected individuals on ART with evidence of immune recovery (ART for , 18mo and CD4 ,350 cells/mm3) to determine whether continued TMP/SMZ prophylaxis confers benefits in decreasing morbidity (malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea), mortality, CD4 count ...
This week, African Strategies for Health (ASH)-a USAID-funded, MSH-led project that identifies public health best practices in sub-Saharan Africa and advocates for their adoption-has been attending the International Conference on Urban Health from May 24 through 27 in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Zoonotic transmission of simian retroviruses in West-Central Africa occurring in primate hunters has resulted in pandemic spread of human immunodeficiency viruses (HIVs) and human T-lymphotropic viruses (HTLVs). While simian foamy virus (SFV) and simian T- lymphotropic virus (STLV)-like infection were reported in healthy persons exposed to nonhuman primates (NHPs) in West-Central Africa, less is known about the distribution of these viruses in Western Africa and in hospitalized populations. We serologically screened for SFV and STLV infection using 1,529 specimens collected between 1985 and 1997 from Côte dIvoire patients with high HIV prevalence. PCR amplification and analysis of SFV, STLV, and HIV/SIV sequences from PBMCs was used to investigate possible simian origin of infection. We confirmed SFV antibodies in three persons (0.2%), two of whom were HIV-1-infected. SFV polymerase (pol) and LTR sequences were detected in PBMC DNA available for one HIV-infected person. Phylogenetic ...
The mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MEK) kinase 1 (MEKK1) mediates activin B signals required for eyelid epithelium morphogenesis during mouse fetal development. The present study investigates the role of MEKK1 in epithelial wound healing, another activin-regulated biological process. In a skin wound model, injury markedly stimulates MEKK1 expression and activity, which are in turn required for the expression of genes involved in extracellular matrix (ECM) homeostasis. MEKK1 ablation or down-regulation by interfering RNA significantly delays skin wound closure and impairs activation of Jun NH2-terminal kinases, induction of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI)-1, and restoration of cell-cell junctions of the wounded epidermis. Conversely, expression of wild-type MEKK1 accelerates reepithelialization of full-thickness skin and corneal debridement wounds by mechanisms involving epithelial cell migration, a cell function that is partially abolished by neutralizing antibodies for PAI-1 and

Intracranial hematomas, whatever its causes, represent an important disabling, and dreaded adults lesion. This brains condition has not well been studied in developing countries. The aim of our study is to overview the management of intracaranial hematomas in Abidjan. It is a retrospective analytical and descriptive study, involving patients who had been admitted and monitored by neurosurgeons for intracranial hematomas, documented in brain CT scan and had been operated on from 1 January 2007 to December 31, 2009 in Abidjan. These 30 patients were 23 men and 7 women. The average age was 58.6 years old. 90% of the patients were admitted with wakefulness issues. Half had a Glasgow score of less than 8. The brain scanner allowed identification of an intraparenchymal hematoma associated or not with a cerebral ventricle contamination in 28 patients. There were 18 external ventricle derivations with or without decompressive craniectomy and 12 independent decompressive craniectomy. The evolution was marked
Summary Isolates of yellow fever (YF) virus from Africa (Senegambia, Central African Republic, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso) and from South America (Panama, Ecuador, Trinidad) were examined by oligonucleotide fingerprinting of the 40S genome RNA. Geographically isolated and epidemiologically unrelated viruses were very distinct. On the basis of the T1 oligonucleotide fingerprints of each isolate, four geographical variants (topotypes) of YF virus isolated within the same period of time have been established. The Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso topotypes were similar. In the Central African Republic, two variants could be found exhibiting 70 to 75% homology to one another. In South America, the three analysed strains exhibited only about 70% homology, but could be classified in the same topotype. The oligonucleotide fingerprints of the genome RNA offered a useful tool for the understanding of YF virus variability.
Oliver was born in Abidjan, Cote DIvoire, West Africa. Hes lived all over the world, and while the cities changed one thing remained consistent - he was always near water. His love of the ocean started as a fun hobby, but it quickly propelled itself into his passion. To fuel that passion, he became dedicated to learning the craft of diving.

The androgen receptor (AR) has been proposed as a candidate gene for several cancers (breast, prostate, uterine endometrium, colon, and esophagus). Ethnicity is considered an associated risk factor for some of these cancers. Several case-control genetic studies have been focused in samples of the main ethnic groups, but little is known about the distribution of risk polymorphisms in current populations with accurate ethnic and/or geographic origins. The A allele of the G1733A polymorphism of the AR gene has been associated with increased risk of prostate cancer. We provide data from this marker in 12 samples from 7 Mediterranean countries such as Spain, Italy (Sardinia), Greece, Turkey, Morocco, Algeria, and Egypt. A sample from Ivory Coast has also been analyzed. The A allele distribution shows a frequency in the Ivory Coast population (65.17%) that contrasts with the low values found in Northern Mediterraneans (mean average value of 13.98%). North African populations present two-times higher ...

During Cote dIvoires civil war that began in 2002, the northern-based Forces Nouvelles raised an estimated $30 million per year through a "parallel tax," which charged cocoa-laden trucks that traveled through the country, according to a 2007 Global Witness report. Apparently, the practice is still going on. In a new briefing, the NGO that investigates the links between resource exploitation and corruption found that cocoa trucks are still being "escorted towards Burkina Faso" by members of the rebel militia, who charge the drivers. Not only is this illegal, inefficient and sapping the government of Cote dIvoire of needed tax revenue, but funds received through extortion are increasingly hard to track. The 2007 Global Witness report claimed the rebels used some of the cocoa and diamond money to purchase weapons. From Rapaport News at Diamonds.net: ...

Ghana and four other West African countries have agreed to tighten their air quality standards and stop importing toxic fuels from Europe, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has said.. After a summit with the UNEP, Ghana together with Nigeria, Benin, Togo, and Cote dIvoire decided to limit sulphur in fuels from 3,000 parts per million to 50 parts per million, which is 60 times less.. The UNEP said the five countries agreed to introduce strict standards to ensure cleaner, low sulfur diesel fuels and vehicles emissions standards, effectively cutting off Europes West Africa market to export its dirty fuels.. A September report by a Swiss campaign group Public Eye revealed how European companies were exploiting weak regulations in West Africa to sneak in fuels with sulfur levels up to 378 times higher than is permitted in Europe.. The report titled, "Dirty Diesel", highlighted the pivotal role played by Swiss commodity trading companies in Africas fuel industry. On ...

In this prospective, population-based study from rural Ethiopia, 28.7% of pregnant women were screened to have symptoms of depression. These women had significantly increased odds of unplanned utilisation of institutional delivery care, mostly due to emergency presentations rather than planning to deliver in a healthcare facility. Assisted delivery was also significantly greater in women with antenatal depressive symptoms.. Overall, the prevalence of antenatal depressive symptoms in our study is consistent with studies in Ghana (26.3%) and Cote dIvoire (28.3%) which used the same measure [18, 23]. Studies in South Africa [25], Vietnam [17] and Southern Brazil [24] using other screening tools (Self-Reporting Questionnaire and Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale) also reported rates of antenatal depressive symptoms of 30-39%.. Prior to the introduction of the health extension programme [71], and until 2011, institutional delivery rates in Ethiopia were very low [52]. Recent ...

Ice Age Lion Man is world s earliest figurative sculpture Work carved from mammoth ivory has been redated and 1,000 new fragments discovered but it won t make it to British Museum show The star exhibit initially promised for the British Museum s Ice Age Art show will not be coming but for a good reason. New pieces of Ulm s Lion Man sculpture have been discovered and it has been found to be much older than originally thought, at around 40,000 years. This makes it the world s earliest figurative sculpture. At the London exhibition, which opens on 7 February, a replica from the Ulm Museum will instead go on display. The story of the discovery of the Lion Man goes back to August 1939, when fragments of mammoth ivory were excavated at the back of the Stadel Cave in the Swabian Alps, south-west Germany. This was a few days before the outbreak of the Second World War. When it was eventually reassembled in 1970, it was regarded as a standing bear or big cat, but with human characteristics. The ivory ...

Evidence from armed conflict settings points to high levels of intimate partner violence (IPV) against women. Current knowledge on how to prevent IPV is limited-especially within war-affected settings. To inform prevention programming on gender-based violence in settings affected by conflict, we evaluated the impact of adding a targeted mens intervention to a community-based prevention programme in Côte dIvoire. We conducted a two-armed, non-blinded cluster randomized trial in Côte dIvoire among 12 pair-matched communities spanning government-controlled, UN buffer, and rebel-controlled zones. The intervention communities received a 16-week IPV prevention intervention using a mens discussion group format. All communities received community-based prevention programmes. Baseline data were collected from couples in September 2010 (pre-intervention) and follow-up in March 2012 (one year post-intervention). The primary trial outcome was womens reported experiences of physical ...
Diversity studies of Echinochloa spp. are complicated by problems in taxonomy and species identification, caused by the existence of morphologically intergrading types. Six amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) primer combinations and five microsatellites were used to assess variation in 24 samples morphologically identified as E. crus-galli, E. colona and E. crus-pavonis, from Bangladesh, India, Colombia, Costa Rica, Côte dIvoire and Philippines. Out of 909 AFLP bands generated, 775 were polymorphic. Genotype diversity for the microsatellites ranged from 0.28 to 0.72. Similarity matrices were calculated using Jaccard coefficient, and input into cluster and principal coordinates analyses. AFLP and microsatellite results were highly correlated. Echinochloa crus-pavonis and E. crus-galli were intermixed, consistent with the view that E. crus-galli occurs as numerous intergrading races in the four countries (Bangladesh, India, Côte dIvoire and Philippines). The E. ...
Also Says Growing Recognition Private Security Companies Must Be Regulated;. Committee Debate Continues on Elimination of Racism, Right to Self-Determination. There had been an alarming resurgence in the use of mercenaries in armed conflict over the past year, often in new and novel ways, to gravely violate human rights, the Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian and Cultural) was told today.. Traditionally, "mercenaries" were soldiers hired to fight in an armed conflict or to overthrow a Government, but in recent conflicts in Côte dIvoire and Libya, Governments had used foreign fighters against their own populations, said Faiza Patel, Chair-Rapporteur of the Working Group on the use of mercenaries as a means of violating human rights of peoples to self-determination..

Abstract:. Background: Non-communicable diseases constitute about 68% of global death annually. Among NCD deaths, cardiovascular diseases (CVD) ranks first with a share of 46.2% amounting to 17.5 million deaths. First degree relatives of patients with coronary heart disease have a higher risk of getting cardiovascular events due to interplay between genetic as well as environmental factors. The aim of this research WAS to assess the prevalence of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risk factors and to estimate the cardiovascular risk among first degree relatives of CAD patients. Methodology: A cross-sectional study was performed in first degree relatives of coronary artery disease patients in cardiology ward of JIPMER a tertiary care hospital in Puducherry. Overall 218 first degree relatives aged ≥18 were involved in study. The desired information was obtained using a pre-tested questionnaire and participants were also subjected to anthropometric measurements and laboratory investigations. WHO/ISH ...
Eight West African countries Saturday agreed to change the name of their common currency to Eco and severed the CFA francs links to former colonial ruler France. The CFA franc was initially pegged to the French franc and has been linked to the euro for about two decades. Benin, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, Ivory Coast, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Togo currently use the currency.
According to this study, 17.5% of FSWs in Ethiopia had been physically beaten within the last 12 months and 15.2% had been raped since they started selling sex. Age, sex-selling venues and high consumption of alcohol and khat were significant predictors of physical violence (beating). On the other hand, the significant predictors of sexual violence (rape) were low income and high consumption of alcohol and khat.. The prevalence of both physical violence and sexual violence (rape) was lower than the prevalence found in studies conducted in Uganda, Ivory Coast and Kenya.9 12 30 32 However, when compared with the studies conducted in Adama (Ethiopia), China, India and Mexico, the current study reported a higher prevalence of both physical and sexual violence.10 11 13 14 33 The difference in the definition of violence used might be one of the possible explanations for the difference between the current result and those found in other studies in Africa. Most of the studies assessed all forms of ...
Most black slaves were imported into Virginia in the 100 year period between 1676 and 1776, though they were present as early as 1619. Slaves began to outnumber the white indentured servant workforce in the late 1600s. The majority were brought into the colony from Africa and the Caribbean. In particular, the African regions of the Bight of Biafra (modern Nigeria), Senegambia (modern Senegal and Gambia), West Central Africa (modern Angola and Congo), and the Gold Coast (modern Ghana) were hotspots for slave traders. Smaller numbers came from the Windward Coast (modern Ivory Coast), Sierra Leone, Bight of Benin (modern Togo and Benin), and Southeast Africa (modern Madagascar and Mozambique) according to surviving shipping registers.[2] The Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade Database Internet site contains references to 35,000 slave voyages, including over 67,000 Africans aboard slave ships, using first name, age, gender, origin, and place of embarkation. The database documents the slave trade between ...

Utricularia species capture small prey in traps. The prey spectrum of aquatic Utricularia species includes a large variety of organisms (e.g. copepods, cladocerans, crustacea, rotifers, algae). This study focuses on selected attributes (species richness, density, biovolume, C and N contents) of microalgae captured inside the traps of aquatic Utricularia spp.. A total of 850 traps of four aquatic bladderwort species (Utricularia australis, U. foliosa, U. gibba and U. vulgaris) from tropical (Ivory Coast) and temperate (Canada, Germany) regions has been investigated concerning the algae captured. In total, 302 microalgal taxa have been identified with Bacillariophyceae, Chlorophyceae and Charophyceae being most species rich. The number of microalgae species captured was different among the Utricularia spp. It was relatively low inside the traps of U. gibba and U. foliosa from tropical Africa, with the greatest species diversity observed within the Charophyceae (Desmidiaceae). The highest ...
Filoviruses is amongst the most lethal of primate pathogens. Filoviruses cause lethal hemorrhagic fever in humans and nonhuman primates. The familyFiloviridae includes two genera: Marburgvirus, comprising various strains of the Lake Victoria marburgvirus (MARV); and Ebolavirus (EBOVs), comprising four species including Sudan ebolavirus (SEBOV), Zaire ebolavirus (ZEBOV), Ivory Coast ebolavirus (CIEBOV), and Reston ebolavirus (REBOV); and a tentative species Bundibugyo ebolavirus (BEBOV)..

Environmental characterization of exposure to toxic wastes containing mercaptan, aromatic hydrocarbons and hydrogen sulphide (Abidjan, Cote dlvoire) In 2006, toxic waste discharged in various parts of Abidjan, Cote dlvoire, poisoned many people, some of them fatally. The authorities defined an impact zone of 200 m around each site as the area as the site for unprecedented population protection and health emergency measures. Nonetheless, the sudden, uncontrolled and dispersed nature of the pollution made it difficult to apprehend its environmental consequences. By combining a geographical survey of transects and a retrospective cross-sectional epidemiological survey, we sought to characterise the inhabitants vulnerability to exposure to the toxic pollutants and the extent of their effects. Multi-source information (from external data, information about the built environment and socio-environmental and epidemiological Surveys) was collected and organized in a GIS by ...

Author Summary Human African trypanosomiasis (HAT) due to Trypanosoma brucei (T.b.) gambiense is usually diagnosed using two sequential steps: first the card agglutination test for trypanosomiasis (CATT) used for serological screening, followed by parasitological methods to confirm the disease. Currently, CATT will continue to be used as a test for mass screening because of its simplicity and high sensitivity; however, its performance as a tool of surveillance in areas where prevalence is low is poor because of its limited specificity. Hence in the context of HAT elimination, there is a crucial need for a better marker of contact with T.b. gambiense in humans. We evaluated here an existing highly specific serological tool, the trypanolysis test (TL). We evaluated TL in active, latent and historical HAT foci in Guinea, Côte dIvoire and Burkina Faso. We found that TL was a marker for exposure to T.b. gambiense. We propose that TL should be used as a surveillance tool to monitor HAT ...
Urinary schistosomiasis, caused by Schistosoma haematobium, remains a significant public health problem worldwide, despite years of efforts to control it. Haematuria is one of the notable indirect indicators of S. haematobium infection and is commonly assessed along with other routine screens using a urinary dipstick test. A portable "field friendly" electronic analyser would offer an automated and thus more objective read-out compared to visual-read dipstick methods.; Within the framework of a Phase 2 praziquantel dose finding study in preschool- and school-aged children infected with S. haematobium, in southern Côte dIvoire, we compared a visual-read of the urine dipstick strips (Multistix PRO, Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics) to an automated reader (CLINITEK Status+ analysertm Siemens Healthcare Diagnostics). Urine samples were collected from 148 pre-school aged and 152 school-aged children for urinalysis. Values were compared using a linear weighted kappa statistic and Bland-Altman ...
Dominance rank in female chimpanzees correlates positively with reproductive success. Although a high rank obviously has an advantage for females, clear (linear) hierarchies in female chimpanzees have not been detected. Following the predictions of the socio-ecological model, the type of food competition should affect the dominance relationships among females. We investigated food competition and relationships among 11 adult female chimpanzees in the Taï National Park, Côte dIvoire (West Africa). We detected a formal linear dominance hierarchy among the females based on greeting behaviour directed from the subordinate to the dominant female. Females faced contest competition over food, and it increased when either the food was monopolizable or the number of competitors increased. Winning contests over food, but not age, was related to the dominance rank. Affiliative relationships among the females did not help to explain the absence of greetings in some dyads. However comparison post hoc ...

Distribution Prunus africana (Hook f.) is a sub-Saharan African montane tree species which occurs from Côte dIvoire to Ethiopia and down to South Africa, including the islands of Madagascar, Grande Comore and Sao Tomé.. In Cameroon P. africana occurs in the montane forests of the Southwest, North West, Western and part of the Adamawa Provinces (near Banyo). In the Mount Cameroon area, this plant is called wotangu in the Bakweri language.. Description. Prunus africana is a tall tree, growing to a height of 30m, usually with a straight trunk. The leaf-type is simple, alternate, oval or lance-shaped. The fruits are spherical, two-lobed drupes (some are single) about 10 mm in diameter (about the size of a coffee grain) and intensely bitter. The wood is reddish brown, heavy and hard.. P. africana is a light-demanding tree which grows well in fertile, well-drained areas. One of the reasons for its decline in numbers is the poor environment for the seedlings to establish themselves, the fact that ...
Abstract Prevalence and Risk Factors for Diabetes Mellitus among newly-diagnosed HIV-infected South African Adults Joseph Murphy Chair of the Supervisory Committee: Paul Drain, MD Department of Epidemiology Background: Non-communicable diseases and their risk factors, including diabetes mellitus, have been increasing in HIV-endemic resource-limited settings. We sought to determine the prevalence and risk factors for diabetes in HIV-infected South African adults. Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study of newly diagnosed HIV-infected adults in a poor urban township in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. We used indicators for demographic, socioeconomic, and substance use prior to HIV testing. We defined diabetes as having a hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) ≥6.5% or in the absence of this test, a random blood glucose (RBG) ≥11.1 mmol/L, and prediabetes was defined as HbA1c 5.7-6.4% or RBG 7.8-11.1 mmol/L. We used logistic regression to identify risk factors for prediabetes or diabetes. Results: Among ...
Interrelations between Public Policies, Migration and Development is the result of a project carried out by the European Union and the OECD Development Centre in ten partner countries: Armenia, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Côte dIvoire, the Dominican Republic, Georgia, Haiti, Morocco and the Philippines. The project aimed to provide policy makers with evidence on the way migration influences specific sectors - labour market, agriculture, education, investment and financial services, and social protection and health - and, in turn, how sectoral policies affect migration. The report addresses four dimensions of the migration cycle: emigration, remittances, return and immigration. The results of the empirical work confirm that migration contributes to the development of countries of origin and destination. However, the potential of migration is not yet fully exploited by the ten partner countries. One explanation is that policy makers do not sufficiently take migration into account ...

The Kimberley Process (KP) is an initiative aiming to ensure that trade in diamonds does not finance conflict. The initiative was welcomed in a United Nations General Assembly resolution and a certification scheme was adopted in 2003 following negotiations between governments, the international diamond industry and civil society groups. Participants now include 54 members (including one from the European Community) representing 80 countries (as of November 2012), the international diamond industry organisation World Diamond Council and civil society groups.. Diamonds fuelling violence are often referred to as "conflict diamonds" or "blood diamonds". Diamonds covered under the KP are the ones "used by rebel movements to finance wars against legitimate governments". The devastating effects of conflict diamonds have been documented in a number of countries including Angola, Côte dIvoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo and Sierra Leone.. Certification imposes several requirements on ...

Analysis of the cot1 phenotype: Overexpression of GL1 results in the initiation of a few ectopic cotyledon trichomes and in a reduced number of adaxial leaf trichomes. To identify enhancers or suppressors of this dominant phenotype, homozygous 35S::GL1 (transformant 4-1) seeds were mutagenized with EMS (see materials and methods). An M2 population representing the equivalent of ~3300 M1 seeds was screened to identify plants with altered trichome distribution. The mutagenesis was successful because additional alleles of ttg (Larkinet al. 1994), dis, and zwi were obtained (data not shown). In the unmutagenized 35S::GL1 4-1 line used in this experiment, ~10% of plants normally contain cotyledon trichomes; however, plants with five or more trichomes on both cotyledons have not been seen in this population (M. D. Marks, unpublished results), and the presence of at least five trichomes on each cotyledon was used as the criterion to identify mutations. The cot1 mutation was isolated based on its ...
Objective- To determine the most important inflammatory and hematologic predictors of thromboembolism (TE) in patients undergoing valve replacement (VR) to be used in conjunction with clinical risk factors for preoperative risk profiling. Methods and Results- Preoperative and immediately postoperative clinical, echocardiographic, hematologic, biochemical and microbiological parameters were examined prospectively in 370 patients undergoing VR (249 AVR, 93 MVR, 28 DVR). Mean follow-up was 4.4 years (max 6.6 years; total 1566 pt/yrs), and 96 TE events were documented (28 major and 68 minor). INR data were collected on all patients. Laboratory values were considered elevated if they exceeded the 80th percentile of those of 70 controls with the same distribution of age and gender. IgA antibody to Chlamydia pneumoniae (CP)≥1:64 was considered indicative of significant infection. Predictors of TE on multivariate analysis following AVR were (hazard ratios): CP infection (2.6), previous TE (2.5), ...
Recent etho-archaeological studies of stone-tool use by wild chimpanzees have contributed valuable data towards elucidating the variables that influenced the emergence and development of the first lithic industries among Plio-Pleistocene hominins. Such data help to identify potential behaviours entailed in the first percussive technologies that are invisible in archaeological records. The long-term research site of Bossou in Guinea features a unique chimpanzee community whose members systematically use portable stones as hammers and anvils to crack open nuts in natural as well as in field experimental settings. Here we present the first analysis of repeated reuse of the same tool-composites in wild chimpanzees. Data collected over 5 years of experimental nut-cracking sessions at an outdoor laboratory site were assessed for the existence of systematic patterns in the selection of tool-composites, at group and at individual levels. Chimpanzees combined certain stones as hammer and anvil more often than
Summary. Fifteen reefs in the Cooktown - Lizard Island sector were surveyed for crown-of-thorns starfish and coral disease outbreaks using manta tow. Intensive SCUBA surveys for benthic organisms, reef fishes and agents of coral mortality (SCUBA searches) were also completed on sites on eight of these reefs. Preliminary results of the manta tow surveys and SCUBA searches are presented in this report. No active outbreaks of crown-of-thorns starfish (COTS) were found but one Incipient Outbreak was recorded at Startle Reef. COTS were recorded in low numbers on seven reefs during manta tow surveys with localized Incipient Outbreak levels of COTS observed on five. COTS were also observed on five reefs during SCUBA searches. COTS feeding scars were recorded on many of the survey reefs and a number of spot checks revealed a few individuals hiding in amongst the reef matrix. Above normal levels of coral mortality were also observed on parts of the Startle Reef (Incipient Outbreak). The directors of the ...

Patients undergoing appendicectomy, attending a gastroenterology clinic or admitted to hospital after self-poisoning have been examined using the same reliable measures to establish whether life events and psychiatric illness preceded abdominal pain. Life events involving threat were experienced more commonly by those with organic and functional abdominal illness, compared with community comparison subjects. The greatest difference was with severe events, especially those involving the break-up of close relationships, which preceded the development of functional abdominal pain as often as they occurred before self-poisoning, and significantly more frequently than before the onset of organic gastrointestinal illness. Abdominal pain of recent onset, for which no organic cause is found, is often preceded by environmental stress, whether it presents to the surgeon or the physician. Those presenting in the clinic were older than those undergoing appendicectomy and had experienced more long lasting ...
Climate change and coral reef bleaching: An ecological assessment of long-term impacts, recovery trends and future outlook - Baker et al. (2008) "Since the early 1980s, episodes of coral reef bleaching and mortality, due primarily to climate-induced ocean warming, have occurred almost annually in one or more of the worlds tropical or subtropical seas. Bleaching is episodic, with the most severe events typically accompanying coupled ocean-atmosphere phenomena, such as the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), which result in sustained regional elevations of ocean temperature. Using this extended dataset (25+ years), we review the short- and long-term ecological impacts of coral bleaching on reef ecosystems, and quantitatively synthesize recovery data worldwide. Bleaching episodes have resulted in catastrophic loss of coral cover in some locations, and have changed coral community structure in many others, with a potentially critical influence on the maintenance of biodiversity in the marine ...

Below average temperatures are expected in parts of the south-central and southeastern U.S., while above-average temperatures are most likely in the western U.S., Alaska, Hawaii and New England, according to the U.S. Winter Outlook, issued by NOAAs Climate Prediction Center. Last years winter was exceptionally cold and snowy across most of the U.S., east of the Rockies. A repeat of this extreme pattern is unlikely this year, although the Outlook does favor below-average temperatures in the south-central and southeastern states. ...
The lower DM of WA silages than of silages of the other forage types reflects the combination of large stems which dry slowly, frequent high summer humidity which can limit drying even when rain is not encountered, and accumulation of large quantities of forage. For WA silages at the lower DM extreme, either delaying harvest until a later stage of maturity or mechanically disrupting stems, as suggested by McCormick (2013), may enhance silage preservation. Van Soest (1982) noted that harvest of sorghum near maturity enhanced ensiling by the combination of fermentable carbohydrate levels and increased DM concentration to a range of 300 to 400 g/kg. Perhaps harvest of WA grasses for baleage at greater maturity than for chopped silage already occurs to some extent as suggested by the higher DM and higher fiber of baleage than chopped silage, although wilting of baleage also undoubtedly contributed to the higher DM. A similar difference in DM between baleage and chopped silage of AR likely resulted ...
He disclosed that they not only have capacity to take care of local demands but also has started exporting to Senegal, Ghana and Abidjan with prospects into other countries in Africa. He cautioned that allowing importation of products the nation have competitive advantage is not good for local manufacturing and will harm the economy of the country.. He said: We produce a vast range of quality products including quality malted sorghum, malt extract, maltose syrup, glucose syrup a substitute for imported sugar. The products are key inputs in breweries, biscuits manufacturing, confectionery& pharmaceutical companies as well as other food and beverage industries. Our fully automated plant can produce 25,000 tons of malt extract, high maltose syrup and raw sorghum. There is therefore the need to increase the tariff from the 5 per cent it is currently to discourage importation as we are comfortably self-sufficient in these raw materials.". While calling for preferential rate for lending to the ...
Before modern preservation methods were developed, scientists would have killed for a high-quality cadaver to study the human body. Fortunately, a cadre of artistically minded, and perhaps morbid, anatomists discovered creative, nonviolent solutions to the short supply of healthy corpses. In other cases, models of the human body were used to discuss medical problems with patients, or as status symbols for teachers. Weve gathered some of the more curious anatomical models throughout history. From wax-injected limbs, to ivory parturition dolls, the collision of art and science was key to understanding our bodies in the 18th and 19th centuries. Here, an ivory model of a human skull with moving parts - made in Europe, date unknown. The eyes, tongue and the lower jaw move when the cylinder at the base is pushed. ...
