In this sense, we could say that Crrlefariga is ims ore resistant to DDT than Anopheles gumbiue. In recent years, however, the word has been widely used to describe strains or races, within species, which are abnormal in being less susceptible to insecticides than the original or natural population of th...

The tremendous volume of literature on influenza prohibits a comprehensive bibliography. Earlier work has, however, been summarized repeatedly in textbooks and reviews, perhaps the most complete recent bibliography (837 references) being in van Rooyen & Rhodes Virus diseases of man (1948). It was for this reason that 1948 was chosen as the beginning of the period to be covered here. However, since 1948 some thousand or more papers have been published; therefore further s...

However, definitions and standards for evaluating QOL vary dramatically from society to society, and even within a given society depend on the culture of the person being assessed (1–8).
