Source Document :
St. Luke's Journal of Medicine. January 2010; Vol. 6 ( 1 ) (Journal)
Abstract :
A SYBR Green l-based real time reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RTPCR)was developed to detect dengue virus. A pair of group-specific primers was designed against a conserved region within the non-structural 1 (NS1) gene. The assay was specific for dengue and did not recognize other h . . .

Acta Medica Philippina. July 1968; Vol. 5 ( Series 2; Number 1 ) : p. 46-50 (Journal)
Abstract :
A larvicidal action from a quaternary ammonium alkaloid (Phaeantharine, "PTR") has been demonstrated in two species of mosquito, Culex fatigans (Weidemann) and Aedes (Stegonia) aegypti (Linnaeus). Effects on the pupae and adults are negligible. The spastic type paralysis observed on the larvae is in . . .

Abstract :
Background. The natural history of wild-type dengue virus (DENV) infections of humans, including incubation and infectious periods, requires further study. Methods. Two experimental studies in the Philippines of DENV-4 (1924-1925) and DENV-1 (1929-1930) were reexamined. The intrinsic incubation per . . .

Abstract :
It is generally asserted that Filipino populations did not suffer the same demographic collapse that followed Spanish conquest in the Americas because they had previously acquired immunity to Old World diseases through trading contacts with Asia. This assertion is examined by trying to establish whi . . .

Abstract :
In this study, the crude extracts of Philippine Padina minor and Dictyota linearis were compared for their larvicidal activity and established their LC50 and LC90 so that we can further compare the values with other similar studies. If a potent larvicidal activity is detected, it may serve as a suit . . .
