We describe a case of two-year-old boy presenting with debilitating pruritus, patchy alopecia and jaundice since the age of 6 months. On evaluation he had intrahepatic cholestasis with persistently raised serum alkaline phosphatase, normal Gamma glutamyl transferase and raised serum bile acid levels. His liver biopsy showed bland cholestasis and electron microscopy showed granular bile suggestive of progressive familial intrahepatic cholestasis type I. Read More

To date, effective treatment, prophylaxis, and control of tuberculosis (TB) infection is mainly dependent on the use of drugs. However, patient noncompliance with prescribed anti-TB treatment schemes remains a major problem confronting successful pharmacotherapeutic outcomes. Thus, the development of alternative delivery systems that can improve adherence for the existing anti-TB bioactives has been intensified in recent times. Read More

The European Union has used instrument for pre-accession (IPA) funds to provide technical assistance and supplies for the eradication, monitoring and control of rabies in several pre-accession countries. As a result, since 2010, multi-annual oral rabies vaccination (ORV) programmes for eliminating fox rabies have been launched in six Western Balkan countries. Here the implementation of the ORV programme in Kosovo, the smallest of the West Balkan countries, is described. Read More

We have developed and validated a computer-assisted sperm-motility assessment (CASA) method for use with the emerging amphibian model Silurana tropicalis. The testicular sperm-activation method was validated by analysing activation replicate coefficients of variation, effects of tracking time settings on velocity distributions and the relative partitioning of differentially motile sperm subpopulations between matched right and left testes. Two major sperm subpopulations were identified using multivariate pattern analysis and their relative frequencies were consistent between samples from matched right and left testes and from randomly drawn subsets of six frogs sampled from the total set of 16 frogs.

Little is known about young men who have sex with men's use of club drugs and the risk factors associated with such use. A structured survey was administered in 2005 to 496 young men who were 18-22 years old (40% were 18-19 years old); self-identified as with a same-sex sexuality (83%), bisexual (16%), and/or had had sex with a man (97%); Caucasian (35%), African American (24%), and Latino of Mexican descent (40%). Subjects were recruited from gay-identified venues in Los Angeles, California, using a venue-based probability sampling design. Read More
