Ethnoveterinary practices of Covasna County, Transylvania, Romania

Conclusions: Although permanent veterinary and medical services are available in some of the villages, elderly people preferred the use of wild and cultivated plants, animals and other materials in ethnoveterinary medicine. Some traditional ethnoveterinary practices are no longer in use, but rather persist only in the memories of the eldest subset of the population. A decline in the vertical transmission of ethnoveterinary knowledge was evident and loss of practice is likely compounded by market availability of ready-made pharmaceuticals.

In this work, the amorphous SiO2 precursors extracted from earth-abundant and silicon-rich clay mineral, kaolinite, have been applied to prepare Si nanosheets (k-Si) through a magnesiothermic reduction method. Benefiting from ...

Many infectious entities such as viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections can be discovered on imaging. Furthermore, imaging characterizes the extent of infection, involvement of specific bowel segments, and presence of complications in the abdomen. Utilizing a multi...

It has been shown that the intensity of the disease in humans depends on the host's immune responses. Immunological investigations on whole protein molecules of T. gondii have shown that these antige...

A new 33-patient case study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine provides some of the strongest proof yet that exposure to asbestos-tainted talcum powder may cause malignant mesothelioma, a rare and deadly cancer that affects tissues lining internal organs. This isn’t only an important scientific discovery—it could also give new ammunition to plaintiffs in the thousands of cases brought against brands selling talcum-powder-based products alleged to cause cancer, like Johnson &Johnson’s Baby Powder. “It’s very, very hard, in general, to prove exactly what caus...
