HIV epidemic types and customized prevention responses.
Since the first reported case of AIDS 27 years ago, more than 70 million people have been infected with HIV worldwide, and 25 million have died of AIDS. The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates ...
A microsatellite evaluation of the genetic status of the p27Kip1 and p21Cip1/WAF1 genes in oesophageal cancer.
p21 C/P 1/"El and p 2 7K/P 1 are cyclin-dependant kinase inhibitors that fonn an integral part of the cell cycle process. These proteins function as cell-cycle inhibitors, and are able to induce cell cycle arrest by binding ...
Cationic liposome mediated transfection with/without a targeting component.
The transfer and expression of genes in cells is an important technique for basic research and gene therapy of human disease. A model for gene therapy has been investigated making use of a transfection complex consisting ...
The assessment of humoral immunity in the vaginal mucosa of pregnant and non-pregnant women.
Mucosal surfaces are prominent in the gastrointestinal, urogenital, and respiratory tracts and provide portals of entry for pathogens. The mucosal immune system consists of molecules, cells, and organised lymphoid ...
Effects of management practices on soil organic matter content, soil microbial activity and diversity in the KwaZulu-Natal midlands.
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of land use and management practice on the soil organic matter content and the size, activity and diversity of the microbial biomass. These effects were investigated ...
Detection of drug metabolizing enzyme gene (DMEs) polymorphisms among the Zulu population of South Africa.
The ability to metabolise drugs and achieve positive therapeutic outcomes is dependent on both genetic and environmental factors. The focus of this study was to determine the distribution and frequency of clinically relevant ...

An assessment of synthetic landfill leachate attenuation in soil and the spatial and temporal implications of the leachate on bacterial community diversity.
The temporal fate of selected parameters, including redox potential; pH; phenol; nitrates; sulphates; copper and zinc, of a young synthetic acetogenic phase landfill leachate was assessed by perfusing a series of sequential ...
