Dengue fever and hepatitis E virus infection are both a public health problem in developing countries due to poor sanitation. Infection with viral hepatitis and dengue fever can present with similar clinical such and fever, headache and abortion. This study was conducted in Port-Sudan city in the eastern part of the country. ELISA and Real Time PCR tests were used to detect the infection. A total number of 39 pregnant women with a mean age 26 ±7.8 were included in the study. All of them had fever, 32 (92.3%) admitted with headache, 11 (28...

Activity concentration levels and ratios of (226)Ra, (210)Pb and (210)Po are presented in multicellular marine algae, molluscs, coral as well as in surface marine sediments collected from the shallower waters of the fringing reefs area extending towards north and south (Flamingo bay) of PortSudan harbour, Sudan. The analyses were performed adopting alpha-spectrometry, liquid scintillation and Cerenkov counting techniques. Surface sediments from this coastal region are poor in their radioactivity content in contrast to similar data reported from different coastal areas around the globe...

Measurements of (239+240)Pu and (238)Pu were carried out on marine biota as well as on sediments from the fringing reefs area extending towards north and south (Flamingo Bay) of PortSudan harbour. The analyses were performed using radiochemical separation and alpha spectrometry. The range of the activity concentrations in marine sediments, in mBq kg(-1) dry weight, was found to be from 5.10 to 82.00 for (239+240)Pu and from 0.89 to 8.63 for (238)Pu. Corresponding activity concentrations of (239+240)Pu and (238)Pu in sediments from the harbours at PortSudan and Sawakin were 53-301 and 8...

OBJECTIVE: To study the clinical presentations and laboratory findings of patients presented with fever in a Hospital in Portsudan, Sudan and to detect dengue virus antibodies in their blood. METHODS: This study was carried in Almwani Hospital during the period from April to July 2005. Eighty-four patients were included in this hospital-based study. All of them had fever. Their blood films, Widal tests for typhoid, stools and urine investigations were normal. The clinical data were collected using questionnaires...
