The syndromic management of sexually transmitted diseases : clinical microbiological response in relation to aetiology, susceptibility patterns and co-infection with HIV-1 [electronic resource].
HIV-1 is the most prevalent and notorious sexually transmitted pathogen locally, and constantly challenges our foundation of knowledge regarding the classical STIs. The ultimate objective of the syndromic management ...
Bioremediation of chemically contaminated soil : extraction/analysis methodology development.
The efficacies of soil extraction methods, namely, Soxhlet, sonication, agitation, alkaline digestion and the ethyl acetate micro-method, for monitoring soil bioremediation were evaluated using three soil types, Swartland, ...
Bioremediation of creosote-contaminated soil by microbial intervention..
No abstract available.
Cost-benefit analysis of the environmental impacts of Darvill Wastewater Works, Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal.
Darvill Wastewater Works (DWWW) receives and treats both domestic and industrial wastewater from the city of Pietermaritzburg, in KwaZulu-Natal. Sludge from the wastewater treatment is sprayed onto surrounding lands, causing ...
Characterization of selected Bacillus isolates exhibiting broad spectrum antifungal activity.
The genus Bacillus is comprised of Gram-positive, rod-shaped, spore-forming bacteria which are well known for their ability to produce a diverse array of antimicrobial compounds. Ofparticular interest is the ability of ...
The effect of water treatment residues on soil microbial and related chemical properties.
Water treatment residue (WTR), a by-product of the water treatment process, consists primarily of precipitated hydroxides of the coagulants used in the water treatment process, along with sand, silt, clay, humic compounds, ...
Optimizing biocontrol of purple nutsedge (Cyperus rotundus).
Cyperus rotundus L. CYPRO (purple nutsedge) and Cyperus esculentus L. CYPES (yellow nutsedge) are problematic weeds on every continent. At present there is no comprehensive means of controling these weeds.. ...
Humic acid pretreatment for enhancing microbial removal of metals from a synthetic 'wastewater'.
The presence of heavy metal ions in waste streams is one of the most pervasive environmental issues of present times. A rotating biological contactor (RBC) was used to investigate the potential capacity of microbial ...
Isolation and identification of antibiotic producing microorganisms from natural habitats in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands.
The search for new antibiotics continues in a rather overlooked hunting ground. In the course of screening for new antibiotic-producing microorganisms, seventy-nine isolates showing antimicrobial activity were isolated ...
P15 trypanosome microtubule associated protein : structure/function analysis and vaccine development for the prevention of African sleeping sickness.
Trypanosomes are hemoflagellated protozoan parasites causing chagas disease in South America, Leishmaniasis throughout the world, and African sleeping sickness in humans and nagana in animals in Africa. About 55 million ...
