Theileriosis is a bovine haemoprotozoal infection caused by Theileria species. It is a tick transmitted haemoparasite and the disease can develop as clinical or subclinical infections. This study was carried out in order to determine Theileria infection by Polymerase Chain Reaction in cattle and buffaloes in a National Livestock Development Board farm at Polonnaruwa, Sri Lanka. Forty-one blood samples were collected from the herd of diseased and non diseased cattle and buffaloes. Packed cell volume of each blood sample was analyzed using microcenrifugation which revealed that 85.7% (18/21) cattle and 20% (4/20) buffaloes had PCV values below the average
The purpose of this study was to assess third year physiotherapy students’ perception and views about initial experience of PBL in Musculoskeletal physiotherapy soon after the clinical placement. The self-administered questionnaire measured perception of PBL on a 5-point Likert type rating scale and focus group discussion used to evaluate the PBL among third year physiotherapy students of the Department of Physiotherapy, University of Peradeniya. Eighteen females and six males responded (comprising 75% of the total sample). Most students were positive that PBL contributed to improve communication skills, critical thinking and makes fun. However female students expressed that they enjoyed group work and it was effective in fulfilling learning objectives. These same views were expressed during focus discussion, female students made reference to enjoying the group work of PBL.

Globimetula braunii is a parasitic plant (mistletoe) used to treat diabetes and hypertension by Nupe speaking people of Niger Sate, Nigeria.Extracts of petroleum ether and n-hexane showedthe presence of steroids, terpenes,and phenols.Rats of both sexes, weighing (135-244)g were randomly allotted to five groups of four rats each. Rats in group one (control) were the normoglycaemic (administered 10 ml distilled water daily),while those in groups two, three, four, and five were rendered diabetic by the administration of 100mg/kg bodyweight of alloxan monohydrate. Group five rats were treated with 500mg/kg bodyweight of standard drug (metformin), groups three and four rats were respectively treated with 500mg/kg bodyweight of petroleum ether and n-hexane extracts for two weeks, while the group two rats were untreated(negative control). Blood glucose was checked after every two days using glucometer. Blood glucose concentration of rats in the extracts (n-hexane and petroleum
Social media refers to the means of interactions among people in which they create, share, and exchange information and ideas in virtual communities and networks. The growth of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has resulted in an enormous volume of security related information present on the web largely when it comes to social media networks. Therefore, with the changing face of cyber security, although it is difficult, it was found that detecting the potential cyber-attacks or crimes is possible and feasible with the vast improvements in ICT. Cloud computing uses ICT resources that are delivered as a service over a network which has opened a promising opportunity across the globe thus resulting a greater popularity of e-commerce. The proposed framework is developed to manage risks of social media networks using the attack tree method which is used to model the risk of the system and identify the possible attacking strategies which the adversaries may launch.
Objective - To evaluate cervical sympathectomy as a modality of treatment for chronic phantom limb pain Design- Clinical Observation Setting- Teaching Hospital Peradeniya, Sri Lanka Subject- A patient presented with phantom limb pain following left upper limb amputation due to a trauma 31/2 years ago. He complained of a Phantom limb sensation with painful writhing movements in fingers for which medical management failed to offer a lasting effect. Methods - Thoracic sympathectomy of sympathetic chain from the 2nd to 4th ganglion was performed by Thoracoscopic approach. The resulting relief was analyzed. Results- Review at Two weeks and Three months revealed the phantom pain has disappeared leaving the phantom sensation of the existence of the hand only with no pain which felt connected to the stump. Conclusions- Cervical sympathectomy needs to be explored as a treatment modality for phantom limb pain.
BACKGROUND: Stroke is an important cause of disability and death. Recently several studies have claimed that RDW is a good predictor of outcome in stroke. As RDW is a complete blood count (CBC) parameter that is routinely determined in clinical laboratories, these studies important implications in patient management in developing countries. The present study was taken up to find out if RDW can be used as an inexpensive biomarker for stroke. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A case-control study involving 52 test subjects and 54 matched controls was conducted. RDW values were determined in test and control groups, compared and statistically analysed. RESULTS & CONCLUSIONS: Significantly higher mean values for RDW (p <0.001) are observed in stroke patients compared to reference population. RDW values higher than 13.0 are associated with several fold increase in the risk of stroke (odds ratio 4.1; p value <0.006); but, the level of RDW does not show a linear relationship
