Ivermectin treatment can cause central nervous system adverse events (CNS-AEs) in persons with very high-density Loa loa microfilaremia (≥ 30,000 mf/mL blood). Hypoendemic onchocerciasis areas where L. loa is endemic have been excluded from ivermectin mass drug administration programs (MDA) because of the concern for CNS AEs. The rapid assessment procedure for L. loa (RAPLOA) is a questionnaire survey to assess history of eye worm. If ≥ 40% of respondents report eye worm, this correlates with ≥ 2% prevalence of very high-density loiasis microfilaremia, posing an unacceptable risk of CNS-AEs after MDA...

Liquid crystals (LCs) are anisotropic fluids that combine the long-range order of crystals with the mobility of liquids1,2 . This combination of properties has been widely used to create reconfigurable materials that optically report information about their environment, such as changes in electric fields (smart-phone displays) 3 , temperature (thermometers) 4 or mechanical shear 5 , and the arrival of chemical and biological stimuli (sensors)6,7 . An unmet need exists, however, for responsive materials that not only report their environment but also transform it through self-regulated chemical interactions...

Exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation was classified in 2011 as a possible human carcinogen, Group 2B, by the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the World Health Organisation. Evidence of the risk of cancer risk has since strengthened. Exposure is changing due to the rapid development of technology resulting in increased ambient radiation. RF radiation of sufficient intensity heats tissues, but the energy is insufficient to cause ionization, hence it is called non-ionizing radiation. These non-thermal exposure levels have resulted in biological effects in humans, animals and cells, including an increased cancer risk...

BACKGROUND: HIV has the most serious effects in Sub-Saharan African countries as compared to countries in other parts of the world. As part of these countries, Ethiopia has been affected significantly by the disease, and the burden of the disease has become worst in the Amhara Region, one of the eleven regions of the country. Being a defaulter or dropout of HIV patients from the treatment plays a significant role in treatment failure. The current research was conducted with the objective of comparing the performance of the joint and the separate modelling approaches in determining important factors that affect HIV patients' longitudinal CD4 cell count change and time to default from treatment...

Melamine was sometimes adulterated to dairy products for false protein content increase in developing countries. However, portable sensor has not been developed for on-spot determination of melamine in dairy products yet. Herein, a distance-based sensor was advanced for the quantification of melamine in dairy products based on chip electrophoretic titration (ET) of moving neutralization boundary (NB) and EDTA photo-catalysis. In the chip sensor, EDTA, H2O2 and leucomalachite green (LMG) were added in the anode well...
