Background: Seasonal outbreaks of dengue often result in hundreds of dengue-suspected cases where a clinical diagnosis cannot be confirmed. Usually, during large outbreaks of dengue and other pathogens that can cause acute febrile illnesses, the search for secondary pathogens with similar disease outcomes is rare.
Methods: Using total RNA sequencing and targeted diagnostic assays, we discovered an outbreak of parvovirus B19 in dengue-suspected patients that occurred from November 2013 to February 2014. Read More

Cuprizone is a neurotoxin with copper-chelating ability used in animal model of multiple sclerosis in which oxidative stress has been documented as one of the cascade in the pathogenesis. is a phytomedicinal plant with antioxidant and neuroprotective properties. This study aimed at evaluating the ameliorative capability of in cuprizone-induced behavioral and histopathological alterations in the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus of Wistar rats. Read More

Background: Dyslipidemia does not occur in all HIV-infected or antiretroviral therapy-experienced patients suggesting role of host genetic factors but there is paucity of data on association between dyslipidemia and gene polymorphisms in Zimbabwe.
Objective: To determine association of lipoprotein levels and polymorphisms in HIV-infected adults.
Method: Demographic data were collected from 103 consenting patients; lipoprotein levels were determined and blood samples were successfully genotyped for both 2488C>T Xba1 and 4154G>A p. Read More

In order to apply the molecular dynamics (MD) method to simulate modulated phases in organic materials, a compensating external pressure tensor is proposed to compensate for the deficiencies of the force field applied in the simulation. MD can well reproduce modulated phases that have been measured by diffraction. Mechanisms of incommensurate modulation are revealed from the simulations. Read More
