Malariaprophylaxe und Selbsttherapie 1990 - Probleme und aktuelle Lösungen


Heusser, Rolf; Steffen, Robert; Mächler, R; Fuchs, E (1991). Malariaprophylaxe und Selbsttherapie 1990 - Probleme und aktuelle Lösungen. Schweizerische Rundschau für Medizin PRAXIS, 80(4):49-52.

Abstract

For successful malaria prophylaxis, future travelers need to be informed about the risks of infection and about systematic measures to be taken against mosquito bites. For visits in areas of high transmission, continuous chemoprophylaxis is recommended, whereas in regions with low transmission a stand-by medication for self-therapy is sufficient. Each of these four measures has some problems which are discussed here in addition to the recently published recommendations by the Swiss Working Group for Medical Advice to Travelers.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
