Paediatric HIV/AIDS disclosure : towards a developmental and process-oriented approach
(Taylor & Francis, 2007)
As antiretroviral therapy becomes more widely available in low-resource settings and children with HIV/AIDS live for longer periods, disclosure of HIV diagnosis to infected children is becoming increasingly important. This ...
An evaluation of dextranomer as a cleansing agent in the treatment of the postphlebitic stasis ulcer
Recent reports in the literature have indicated that dextranomer (Debrisan; Adcock-Ingram) is an effective cleansing agent for the secreting wound. To evaluate its possible use in the initial cleansing of the infected ...

Zona pellucida induced acrosome reaction, sperm morphology, and sperm-zona binding assessments among subfertile men
Purpose: The study aimed to evaluate the relationship between the zona pellucida induced acrosome reaction (ZIAR) and (i) percentage normal spermatozoa as well as (ii) sperm-zona pellucida binding potential among men ...
The gubernaculum during testicular descent in the human fetus
This study of 178 male human fetuses and infants demonstrates that descent of the testis through the inguinal canal is a rapid process, with 75% of testes descending between 24 and 28 weeks of gestation. The gubernaculum ...
Comparative trial of clomiphene citrate/human menopausal gonadotropin and the contraceptive pill, followed by clomiphene citrate/human menopausal gonadotropin, in a gamete intrafallopian transfer program
Purpose: It may sometimes be necessary to regulate cycles in assisted reproduction. Cycles can be regulated with gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRHa) agonist but other methods can also be used. The aim of this study was ...
Physiological induction of the acrosome reaction in human sperm: Validation of a microassay using minimal volumes of solubilized, homologous zona pellucida
Purpose: To develop a method that could accommodate microvolumes of solubilized human zona pellucida (ZP) and sperm for assessing the induction of the acrosome reaction. Methods: A microassay using 1 μl of 2.5, 1.25, 0.6, ...
