High Frequency of Pfcrt-76T Allele in Plasmodium falciparum Isolates From Gabon and Ivory Coast After the Withdrawal of Chloroquine.
Authors: Ndong Ngomo JM, Amiah Ahou M, Yavo W, Karine Bouyou-Akotet M, Mawili-Mboumba DP Abstract The aim of this study was to assess the proportion of Pfcrt-76T mutant allele four years after the adoption of new malaria control guidelines in Gabon and Ivory Coast. Frequency of K76T mutation of Pfcrt gene was compared between Plasmodium falciparum isolates from Gabon and Ivory Coast. Samples were collected in 2008 in Gabon and in 2009 in Ivory Coast. In total, 151 isolates were selected and analysed by nested-PCR-RFLP for Pfcrt-76 allele identification: 63 in Abobo (Ivory Coast) and 78 in Oyem (Gabon). The proporti...

[Reflections on Three Episodes of Louis Pasteur's Life as Seen in the William Dieterle's Movie (1936)].
Authors: Daniel-Ribeiro CT, Lima MM, Pays JF Abstract Despite the criticism and reservations made about him still nowadays, Louis Pasteur may be considered one of the most important scientists of the last two centuries in public health, even if the work of the numerous scientists who preceded him have largely contributed to the successes he obtained without following too much to the rules of deontology and ethics currently in force in the world of research and medicine. He has definitively put down, by his experiments, the "theory of spontaneous generation" in force since antiquity, validated that of &quo...

If these lesions are poorly treated, they can impair fine motor skills and tactile sensitivity of the fingertips. The study was conducted on 30 patients (24 males and 6 females) with 32 soft tissue defects of the fingertip treated in emergency plastic surgery with local pedicled flap at the Plastic Surgery Department of Saint Paul Hospital Hanoi from 01/2016 to 06/2017.

Authors: Muila M, Gazin P Abstract According to WHO recommendations, antimalarial drugs should be used only after a biological confirmation of a malaria attack. In order to better understand the diagnosis decision-making and the use of the malaria tests (immunochromatographic test RDT and direct microscope observation), a survey was carried out in two health facilities in the city of Cabinda, Angola in 2014. Diagnosis and drug prescriptions by the health staff were observed in 787 febrile children. It clearly appeared that there was a lack of trust of the health professionals in the test results, especially in the ...

Today, the cornerstone of the fight against malaria vectors is based on a large distribution of these LLINs for universal coverage. Despite this promotion, the question of their effective life in operational conditions remains unresolved. Between September and October 2013, a survey was conducted in 11 districts of Senegal where LLINs were sampled and routed to the laboratory for assessing their p...

Senegal is supposed to be a non-endemic zone. There is a constant connection with the Epstein-Barr virus. In this work, the authors study and discuss the pathological aspects of undifferentiated carcinoma of the nasopharynx in 13 cases. They also seek to make the link between this cancer and the presence of an Epstein-Barr virus infection in these patients.

They were a 19-year-old woman and a 46-year-old man, native from Niger, who had never left the country and had recurrently presented sensory and motor disorders and ophthalmologic disorders.

[A Rare Localization of Tuberculosis: Talus Tuberculosis (Observation of a Female Patient from Marrakech Region, Morocco)].
Authors: Bouchentouf R, Idrissi KK, Yasser Z Abstract Osteoarticular localization is rare and dominated by spinal disease. The talus localization of tuberculosis is rarely described in the literature; it can be secondary of direct inoculation or results from hematogenous dissemination, most of the time from lung tuberculosis. Its diagnosis is difficult; the imaging is very suggestive, but the confirmation is bacteriological and/or histological. The prognosis depends on a rapid diagnosis and the precocity of the treatment which is essentially medical. PMID: 30789246 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Bulletin de la ...

[Plant Traditional Treatment with Acalypha indica Inducing Haemolysis in Patients with G6PD Deficiency: A Frequent Circumstance in Mayotte?]
Authors: Durasnel P, Tantet C, Chamouine A, Blondé R Abstract A traditional treatment by plants with Acalypha indica L. can induce an intravascular haemolysis in patients with a glucose-6-phosphate-dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency. This information is poorly diffused in areas where the plant grows, where it is consumed for ethnomedicinal purpose and where G6PD deficiency prevalence is high; as a consequence, the probability of haemolytic accidents is presumably underestimated. It seems frequent in Mayotte according to local recent data reporting. Such accidents were previously only, and on a rare basis, repor...

This delay can be further lengthened by the process of rendering the analysis reports to the sites of care which significantly delays the community responses to cholera. Through this study, we have aimed to assess the reliability of partial results. We have studied 250 stool samples that were analy...

Yet many a city nowadays comprises peri urban zones close to land devoted to farming. The sites where Ae. albopictus live and reproduce, located on the fringe of nectarfilled blossoming crops (orchards, colza and sunflower fields) are often polluted by chemical inputs such as fertilizers and pesticides.

The mean age at diagnosis was 41.9 years (18/58) without sex predominance (sex-ratio = 0.8). Tobacco intoxication (3/9), tuberculosis contagion (1/9), HIV immunodepression (2/9), and diabetes (1/9) were the various risk factors found. Dysphonia was a constant symptom (9/9) associated with dysphagia (2/9) and cervical adenopathy (1/9). The macroscopic presentation was tumoral-like (7/9) and erythematosus and fibrinoid (2/9).

Genetic Population Diversity of Aedes caspius in Southern Provinces of Iran.
In this study, 1,796 specimens of Aedes caspius were identified from four provinces. Based on the COI and COII sequences obtained for Ae. caspius population, 12 and 11 haplotypes were identified, respectively. The present study evidenced a high degree of intraspecific variation among these populations of Ae. caspius.
