Of the ways of estimating the prevalence of bilharziasis, finding parasite eggs is unequivocal. It is therefore remarkable that the measurement of prevalence by egg output has received less attention than have several more indirect procedures such as antigenic methods. This paper considers the aims and actual techniques of excretal examination to give quantitative results, with emphasis on Sc!iistosorna kaenatobirrnz. It will be shown that where precision is the paramoun...

The presence of antibodies against tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus in domestic animals in the eastern foreland of the Tribe2 Mountains and in the Hronsky Tnovec Mountains was established as early as 1959 (Libikovi et al., 1962) before a vaccination programme aimed at reducing the circulation of TBE virus in this region was instituted.

In the last few years the tobacco industry has aimed both its products and its advertising increasingly at women. Tobacco companies have always been keen to develop the female market. Given the decline in smoking in many developed countries (especially among men) and the fact that tobacco kills off a quarter of its consumers, however, these companies are resorting more than ever before to the creation and expansion of new markets. Women are key target groups in both deve...

Limb elevation is one of the most important methods of reducing oedema. Oedema makes movement painful and difficult, but active movement should be encouraged as muscle contraction serves as an effective pump to assist the return of the fluid to the circulation. Passive motion is not recommended when there is excessive oedema, and aggressive passive motion can be harmful. Massage and compression can also be used to help return oedema fluid to the circulation. Compression ...

Neither of these substances, however, is entirely satisfactory, and with an expansion of irrigation schemes there is need for an efficient but cheap molluscicide and the knowledge of how it can be most effectively applied. Preliminary ...
