In this paper, we demonstrate the design and optimization of an ultrafast PCR amplification technique, used with a seven-locus multiplex that is compatible with conventional capillary electrophoresis systems as well as newer microfluidic chip devices. The procedure involves the use of a high-speed polymerase and a rapid cycling protocol to permit multiplex PCR amplification of forensic short tandem repeat loci in 6.5 min. Read More

The purine nucleoside analogues clofarabine and fludarabine are active in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). We conducted a phase I/II randomized study of idarubicin and cytarabine with either clofarabine (CIA) or fludarabine (FIA) for relapsed or refractory AML. Clofarabine 15 mg/m was identified as the recommended phase II dose. Read More

Background: There is paucity data on the association of vitamin D deficiency (VDD) and active tuberculosis (TB) in southern Africa where the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is co-endemic. We examined the association of serum vitamin D concentrations with active pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) in HIV-infected (n = 284) and uninfected (n = 267) Black Zimbabweans, in Harare, Zimbabwe.
Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study of 551 participants comprising 145 HIV/PTB , 139 HIV/PTB, 134 HIV/PTB and 133 HIV/PTB. Read More

Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men worldwide. Gleason grading is an important predictor of prostate cancer outcomes and is influential in determining patient treatment options. Clinical decisions based on a Gleason score of 7 are difficult as the prognosis for individuals diagnosed with Gleason 4+3 cancer is much worse than for those diagnosed with Gleason 3+4 cancer.
