We report on fleas collected from small mammals in a lower mountane rainforest in the Crocker Range National Park, Sabah, Borneo. Macrostylophora durdeni n. sp., collected from Dremomys everetti and, of minor importance, Tupaia montana, is described. Further records include Gryphopsylla jacobsoni segragata and Lentistivalius vomerus from T. montana.

Geiji-Bokryung-Hwan (GBH) was studied on antiplatelet activity in human platelet suspensions. GBH consists of the 5 herbs Cinnamomi Ramulus, Poria Cocos, Mountan Cortex Radicis, Paeoniae Radix, and Persicae Semen, which have been used in herbal medicine for thousands of years for atherosclerosis. The mechanism involved in the antiplatelet activity of GBH in human platelet suspensions was investigated. GBH inhibited platelet aggregation and Ca2+ mobilization in a concentration-dependent manner without increasing intracellular cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP...

An epidemiologic survey of Pediculus capitis infestation among Akka aboriginal and Han children of Chinese refugees living in mountainous areas at elevations of 1,100 to 1,400 m in Chiang-Rai Province of northern Thailand was conducted during January 2003. Of the 303 children examined, 43 (14.2%) had P. capitis infestation. The overall infestation rate for P. capitis in Akka children (29.3%, 12/41) was significantly higher than that in Han children (11.8%, 31/262; chi2 = 8.161, p = 0.002). The prevalence in Akka (52...

A systematic observation and research was conducted on the overwintering and size dynamic characters of Apis cerana cerana at south and west mountaneous area of Anhui Province in 1998-2003. The results showed that the center temperature of overwintering bee flock changed synchronously with the outside temperature. With the decrease of overwintering bee colony, its center temperature and relative humidity ranged widely, and stably descended. Overwintering flocks fed by old method had a high stability than that fed new one...

Geiji-Bokryung-Hwan (GBH), consisting of herbes of Cinnamomi ramulus (Geiji), Poria cocos (Bokryun), Mountan cortex radicis (Mokdanpi), Paeoniae radix (Jakyak), and Persicae semen (Doin), on antiplatelet activity in human platelet suspensions was studied. The mechanism involved in the antiplatelet activity of GBH in human platelet suspensions was investigated. GBH did not significantly affect the thromboxane synthetase activity of aspirin-treated platelet microsomes and GBH (15 and 30 microg/ml) significantly inhibited [3H]arachidonic acid released in collagen-activated platelets but not in unactivated-platelets...

Geiji-Bokryung-Hwan (GBH), a drug preparation consisting of five herbs of Cinnamomi Ramulus (Geiji), Poria Cocos (Bokryun), Mountan Cortex Radicis (Mokdanpi), Paeoniae Radix (Jakyak) and Persicae Semen (Doin), is a traditional Korean herbal medicine that is widely used in the treatment of atherosclerosis-related disorders. A water extract of GBH was found to scavenge 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radicals and inhibit low-density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation more effectively than probucol, a well-known commercially available antioxidant...

Studies on the biological characteristics, including soil microbe, soil enzyme activity, soil nutritient content, and litter decomposition of different forest soils in Nanjing-Zhenjiang mountain area showed that the amounts of microbes and the activities of six enzymes in forest soils changed regularly in different forests during different months. The contents of nutritional elements varied regularly with forest growth bio-cycles, and were inerrelated prominently with the amounts of soil microbes and the activities of soil enzymes...

Echinococcus multilocularis larvae occurred in 23 (2.44%) of the 943 adult vole rats (Arvicola terrestris scherman Shaw, Mammal Microtidae) collected in the mountanous center of France (Massif Central, departments of Puy-de-Dôme and Cantal, province of Auvergne) and obtained from August 1981 to Aug. 1982 in seven different localities. According to this localities, the average percentage of parasitized voles changes from zero to 4.65%; according to the month of the year, these percentages change from 0.6 to 3...

A case of infected and suppurating pyourachal cyst is described. The rarity of urachal pathology in the adult prompted us to report the present case. The clinical features, diagnosis and treatment of this urachal complication are discussed.

The authors analysed the data obtained in examination of 106 patients with carcinoma of the thyroid gland residing in the Mountaineous-Altai region endemic by goiter. A conclusion was drawn that in the great majority of the aforesaid patients an important etiological factor in the development of malignant tumour was nodular and diffuse-nodular goiter. In patients with carcinoma of the thyroid gland residing the mentioned region the blood iodine, cobalt, and copper content was much greater than in healthy persons...

A clinical study was conducted in 236 patients with decompensated mitral valve disease--permanent residents of the areas located at various altitudes in the Pamirs and Tien Shan (760 to 4,200 m above the sea level). The main parameters of haemodynamics were studied by means of the dye dilution method in 158 of them, as well as the indices of cardiodynamics by way of polycardiography. The data obtained in 120 normal individuals living in foothills (760 m) served as control. It was demonstrated that with the same stages of cardiac insufficiency, the most striking changes in the haemo- and cardiodynamics were noted among the residents of the high altitude areas...
