The embryogenesis of Onchocerca volvulus over the first year after a single dose of ivermectin

, : The embryogenesis of Onchocerca volvulus over the first year after a single dose of ivermectin. Tropical Medicine and Parasitology 42(3): 175-180

Adult O. volvulus, extracted from nodules before, and at intervals of 2 weeks to 12 months after, a single 150 micro g/kg dose of ivermectin, were examined longitudinally and by sequential transverse sections. The patients were residents on 6 coffee fincas in Guatemala. The mean number of male worms per nodule fell, and the proportion of nodules with no male worm rose, within 2 weeks of ivermectin and remained so for 12 months.

Pharmacological evidence has suggested the presence of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin), 5-HT-1D receptors on endothelial cells but these receptors have never been identified unambiguously on this type of cells. We now report that human umbil...

The biomass of the finfish as bycatch of the shrimp-trawl fishery in the southeastern Gulf of California was estimated by use of a heuristic approach for fish biomass, by the use of the central-tendency hypotheses on the proportion of fish landed...
