Predicting #Malaria Risk and Utilization of Health Care Services among the Population in Uganda

Posted on

The objective of this study was to predict malaria risk and utilization of health care services among the population in Uganda. Methods: We used a retrospective longitudinal study design that involved a secondary analysis of data from Ministry of Health (MoH) and Uganda Bureau of statistics (UBOS).The predicting model was derived taking limiting distribution of the partial derivative with respect to time of the malaria predicting model at the health facilities.

Scientists from NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases developed the model, which was claiming that mice easily defending against Zika virus better than people because they have a substantial interferon response. Interferon is a powerful antiviral protein that inhibits the virus. The researchers suppressed the interferon in specialized laboratory mice that also lack the ability to produce T cells or B cells.

Posted on

This manuscript is an outgrowth of my discovery of the viroids in 1971, which has been endorsed by the International Committee for the Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) as a new order called Subviral Agents, which now consists of two families and upward of 40 species, all isolated from higher plants. Most of these cause diseases of various crops. fruit trees, or ornamental plants. Here I ask the question why, so far, these plant viroids are not complemented by their counterparts in animals.
