Spatial and temporal variations in percentage cover of two common seagrasses at Sirinart National Park, Phuket; and a first step for marine base
Anchana Prathep
Songklanakarin Journal of Science and Technology , 2003,
Abstract: Percentage cover and distribution of two common seagrasses, Thalassia hemprichii (Ehrenb.) Aschers. and Cymodocea rotundata Ehrenb. Et Hempr. Ex Aschers., were studied in the dry and wet seasons. The study was carried out at three levels on sheltered, moderately exposed and very exposed sites on the coastline of Sirinart National Park, Thailand. One hundred and twenty samplings were investigated and recorded. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) revealed that there were significant differences in the percentage cover of C. rotundata among different degrees of wave exposure (P<0.01); and T. hemprichii was significantly influenced by interactions between seasons, shore levels and degrees of wave exposure (P<0.05). High sediment disturbance on the very exposed site was likely to influence the percentage cover and distribution of both seagrasses. This study provided baseline data for further work on ecological study and long term monitoring; and a first step to building up a ‘marine base’.
Molecular diagnosis of eosinophilic meningitis due to Angiostrongylus cantonensis (Nematoda: Metastrongyloidea) by polymerase chain reaction-DNA sequencing of cerebrospinal fluids of patients

Memórias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz , 2013, DOI: 10.1590/S0074-02762013000100020
Abstract: cerebrospinal fluid (csf) samples from clinically diagnosed patients with detectable angiostrongylus canto-nensis-specific antibodies (n = 10), patients with clinically suspected cases that tested negative for a. cantonensis-an-tibodies (n = 5) and patients with cerebral gnathostomiasis (n = 2) and neurocysticercosis (n = 2) were examined by a single-step polymerase chain reaction (pcr) method using the ac primers for the 66-kda native protein gene. the pcr method detected a. cantonensis dna in csf samples from four of 10 serologically confirmed angiostrongyliasis cases. the pcr results were negative for the remaining csf samples. the nucleotide sequences of three positive csf-pcr samples shared 98.8-99.2% similarity with the reference sequence of a. cantonensis. these results indicate the potential application of this pcr assay with clinical csf samples for additional support in the confirmation of eosinophilic meningitis due to a. cantonensis.
The effects of medical tourism: Thailand's experience
NaRanong,Anchana; NaRanong,Viroj;
Bulletin of the World Health Organization , 2011, DOI: 10.2471/BLT.09.072249
Abstract: objective: to explore the positive and negative effects of medical tourism on the economy, health staff and medical costs in thailand. methods: the financial repercussions of medical tourism were estimated from commerce ministry data, with modifications and extrapolations. survey data on 4755 foreign and thai outpatients in two private hospitals were used to explore how medical tourism affects human resources. trends in the relative prices of caesarean section, appendectomy, hernia repair, cholecystectomy and knee replacement in five private hospitals were examined. focus groups and in-depth interviews with hospital managers and key informants from the public and private sectors were conducted to better understand stakeholders' motivations and practices in connection with these procedures and learn more about medical tourism. findings: medical tourism generates the equivalent of 0.4% of thailand's gross domestic product but has exacerbated the shortage of medical staff by luring more workers away from the private and public sectors towards hospitals catering to foreigners. this has raised costs in private hospitals substantially and is likely to raise them in public hospitals and in the universal health-care insurance covering most thais as well. the "brain drain" may also undermine medical training in future. conclusion: medical tourism in thailand, despite some benefits, has negative effects that could be mitigated by lifting the restrictions on the importation of qualified foreign physicians and by taxing tourists who visit the country solely for the purpose of seeking medical treatment. the revenue thus generated could then be used to train physicians and retain medical school professors.
Inguinal endometriosis: A case report
Kaushik Rajni,Gulati Anchana
Journal of Cytology , 2008,
Abstract: Inguinal (noncutaneous) endometriosis is an uncommon presentation of endometriosis. It usually presents as a painful, typically right-sided, hernia-like inguinal mass with catamenial exacerbation. Here we report a case of inguinal endometriosis in which fine needle aspiration cytology was instrumental in reaching the diagnosis which was subsequently confirmed on histopathology.
Seasonal variations in diversity and abundance of macroalgae at Samui Island, Surat Thani Province, Thailand
Jaruwan Mayakun,Anchana Prathep
Songklanakarin Journal of Science and Technology , 2005,
Abstract: Diversity and abundance of macroalgae at Samui Island, Surat Thani Province, Southern Thailand was investigated during rainy and dry seasons. Five study sites were chosen around the Island on the basis of its high species richness and abundance. Applying a “Visual Census Method”, the abundance of macroalgae in terms of percentage cover could be estimated. Thirty-four taxa of marine algae were found from the five sites around the Island: Phra Yai, Sila-ngu, Hua-tanon, Ban Pang-ga and Taling-ngam. A total of thirty-four taxa were identified during this study, comprising 1 Cyanophyta, 9 Chlorophyta, 10 Phaeophyta and 14 Rhodophyta. The brown alga, Sargassum polycystum, was widely distributed and found at all sites, while Padina and Acanthophora were the most abundance species throughout this study. Sila-ngu and Hua-tanon sites had the richest diversity of macroalgae during the dry season; 22 species and 20 species were found respectively. This high diversity might be the result of greater habitat complexity, while only 2 species of macroalgae were found on the soft-bottom substrate at Phra Yai. A greater abundance of macroalgae was found during the dry season which might be due to the combination of increasing light intensity and the accumulation of nutrient run off during the rainy season. The algae, therefore, could have greater photosynthesis and grow later in the early part of dry season. Diversity of macroalgae, however, was 35 % less in the last 18 years. This might be the result from increasing tourist activities in Thailand. Thus, marine conservation and management are urgent issues for the island. In addition, further intensive studies on macroalgae are also needed because they have received less attention when compared to other marine organisms such as corals and fishes.
A Comparative Study in Sepsis and Normal Neonates-A Microbiological Perspective
Anchana Devi,Pushpa
Journal of Medical Sciences , 2008,
Abstract: The present study was designed to determine the incidence and causative organisms of bacterial sepsis in neonates by using blood culture techniques in the infected neonates and to evaluate the contribution made by C-reactive protein (CRP), erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), white cell count (WCC) and haemoglobin in mothers. Of this CRP, ESR, WCC were very high, but hemoglobin count was low in most of the sepsis mothers. Assessing CRP, ESR, WCC is a more reliable way to indicate sepsis and it was noted that the gram-negative bacteria are responsible for septicemia in maximum number of cases.

Songklanakarin Journal of Science and Technology , 2011,
Abstract: Diversity and distribution of seaweeds at Khanom-Mu Ko Thale Tai National Park, Nakhon Si Thammarat Province,Thailand were carried out between October 2005 and May 2008 at five islets, Ko Taen, Ko Mut Sum, Ko Rab, Ko Wang Nai,and Ko Wang Nok. A total of 60 species were identified including 23 species of Chlorophyta, 19 species of Phaeophyceae inthe Chromophyta, 16 species of Rhodophyta, and 2 species of Cyanobacteria. Of these, eight species are believed to be newrecords for the Thai marine flora. The number of species varied from site to site. Ko Tan had the highest diversity with 49species and KoWang Nok had the lowest diversity with 22 species. This study provides a more complete species list forfurther comparative studies between the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. We have intensively reviewed the seaweedliterature of Thailand, which was very limited. However, recent work on population and community structure have increasedfrom 2005, which helps providing a baseline for future, more complex ecological studies, as well as for coastal managementand for the exploration of the seaweed’s economic potential.
