This compilation reviews the current knowledge on tick-borne diseases in Southeast Asia and identifies the gaps in information that will direct future investigations.
Following this, the effects of moderate hypothermia for different durations on the intensity of blood free radical processes and erythrocyte osmotic fragility are studied in rats.
The authors summarize the different molecular methods for the detection and genotyping of Noroviruses and Sapoviruses, two genera in the Caliciviridae family that cause acute intestinal gastroenteritis, a disease usually associated with diarrhoea and/or vomiting.
Information about infant and parental factors with respect to paternal involvement in infant sleep is provided, particularly focusing on parental psychosocial functioning, the sleep behaviors of parents and the quality of relationship with their infant at bedtime.
Information related to the health benefits of physical activity during pregnancy and lactation is also provided, as evidence is currently inconsistent.
The closing study focuses on scleroderma renal crisis, a complication of systemic sclerosis with high morbidity and mortality characterized by a sudden and marked increase in systemic blood pressure and rapidly progressive oliguric renal failure.
