descriptive epidemiology of primary cancer of the brain, cranial nerves, and cranial meninges in new zealand, 1948-88.we used new zealand data on occurrence of different types of brain cancer to investigate: (i) a possible secular increase which has been seen worldwide and has generated considerable debate; (ii) possibly higher rates among maori; and (iii) possibly higher risks related to social class and occupation. data from the nz cancer registry on the 5,684 brain cancers diagnosed among nz residents from 1948-88 were used to study the pattern of occurrence by gender, age, race, calendar year, social class, ...19938280830
external ophthalmomyiasis, a disease established in hawaii.external ophthalmomyiasis, usually caused by the sheep nasal bot fly, oestrus ovis l., is characteristically a benign disorder in humans, but may rarely cause severe complications. it occurs on most of the inhabited hawaiian islands, and is more common than indicated by previously published reports. a typical case is presented along with the fly's life cycle, clinical features, and management.19979077046

flavan-3-ols isolated from some medicinal plants inhibiting cox-1 and cox-2 catalysed prostaglandin biosynthesis.extracts from the four plant species atuna racemosa raf. ssp. racemosa, syzygium corynocarpum (a. gray) c. muell., syzygium malaccense (l.) merr. & perry and vantanea peruviana macbr., traditionally used for inflammatory conditions, were fractionated using a cyclooxygenase-1 catalysed prostaglandin biosynthesis in vitro assay. the flavan-3-ol derivatives (+)-catechin, (+)-gallocatechin, 4'-o-me-ent-gallocatechin, ouratea-catechin and ouratea-proanthocynidin a were isolated as active principles. ...19989741297
diversity of marine biotoxins in the near-shore ocean area: presence of a palytoxin-like entity at barber's point harbor, oahu.the presence of palytoxin or palytoxin-like compounds in fish extracts has been presented in this study. the hemolytic assay with sheep erythrocytes demonstrated the occurrence of hemolytic factors in fish extracts of hawaiian reef fish from barber's point, oahu. the rabbit anti-palytoxin inhibition assay with fish extracts and sheep erythrocytes demonstrated that palytoxin or its congener contributed to the lysis of sheep erythrocytes. from these results, it was concluded that sheep erythrocyte ...200111695821
meat consumption, cancer risk and population groups within new comparison with other oecd countries with good cancer registries, new zealand has the highest mortality rate of colon cancer, second highest of breast cancer and third highest of prostate cancer. a possible association with heterocyclic amine consumption has been suggested for each of these cancers. studies of locally cooked meat suggest that the main contributors to heterocyclic amines in the new zealand diet would be well-cooked beef, chicken and pork. well-cooked beef steak, and the specif ...200212351161
ophthalmomyiasis in hawaii.ophthalmomyiasis is the infestation of the eye by fly larvae. commonly caused by oestrus ovis, a female sheep botfly will accidentally deposit her larvae into a human eye, resulting in disease. prompt recognition and treatment of this condition will improve patient care and reduce potential complications. we report a case of ophthalmomyiasis in a young man from molokai who was infested while unloading a christmas tree.200415124740
limitations to seedling establishment in a mesic hawaiian forest.while invasive species may be visible indicators of plant community degradation, they may not constitute the only, or even the primary, limitation to stand regeneration. we used seed-augmentation and grass-removal experiments under different canopy conditions to assess the relative importance of dispersal limitation, resource availability, and competition on seedling establishment in the understory shrubs sophora chrysophilla, dodonea viscosa, and pipturus albidus in a montane mesic forest in ha ...200616450179
