  1. Biochemical characterization of the nucleic acids of some human and animal viruses
    Mew, Ronald Terence, 2017-12-07T07:14:43Z, University of Cape Town
    In Part I, the isolation and partial characterization of human polyomaviruses from a number of renal transplant patients is described. These isolates proved refractory to cell culture propagation by the methods used, and were thus extracted directly from large volumes of patient"s urine. This approa ...
  2. The diabetic diet : education, compliance and practical applications
    Smith, Cynthia J, 2017-12-07T07:22:56Z, University of Cape Town
    The aim of this thesis is to investigate different methods of improving the glycaemic control of diabetic out-patients, within the scope of the author"s training both as a therapeutic dietitian and as a teacher. Evidence is presented from the literature, which indicates that high-carbohydrate, high- ...
  3. Three cocluded insect viruses : a biophysical and biological study of the nuclear-polyhedrosis virus of Colias electo, the granulosis virus of Heliothis armigera and the nuclear-polyhedrosis virus of Heliothis zea
    Gitay, Hela, 2017-12-07T07:44:18Z, University of Cape Town
    An investigation was undertaken in some detail of three virus strains of insect pests of agricultural importance, viz. a nuclear-polyhedrosis virus of the lucerne caterpillar, Colias electo, and a granulosis virus of the bollworm, Heliothis armigera, both found in South Africa, and a nuclear-polyhed ...

The number of deaths from this condition is estimated at 5 million a year. There are important clinical differences in the disease as it manifests itself in previous ...
  5. In Vitro studies of factors which may influence ligand binding, function, immunogenicity and genetic regulation of the Beta-2 adrenergic receptor in asthma
    Potter, Paul Charles, 2017-12-07T07:58:42Z, University of Cape Town
    This thesis records a series of experiments conducted to gain further insight into factors which influence the expression, ligand binding and functional activity of the beta-2 adrenergic receptor. These studies were prompted by previous reports that the postulated beta-2 adrenergic receptor abnormal ...
  6. The Budd-Chiari syndrome : a study of diagnosis, haemodynamics and treatment

    Symptomatic occlusion of the hepatic veins is a rare condition caused by tumour or thrombus arising either locally or by extension from the inferior vena cava. It is usually called the Budd-Chiari syndrome. The etiology remains unknown in over two-thirds of the patients. Its rarity and interest has ...
  7. Intra-articular injections in osteo-arthritis : a critical evaluation by clinical physico-chemical and experimental methods
    Dall, George, 2017-12-07T08:12:33Z, University of Cape Town
    The therapy of osteo-arthritis is a problem which we have inherited from our forebears. It is a considerable problem; one which affects the community very vitally. The disease produces marked disability which burdens our civic economy. Various methods of therapy have been advocated from time to time ...
