Pages: 
190-6
Synopsis: 
Chikungunya virus infection-associated arthralgia was determined in adult Jamaicans 8–12 months post-outbreak. Persistent and severe arthralgia occurred in 30.3% and 27.5% of the participants, respectively. Females had greater odds of persistent and severe pain. Severe joint pain was related to pre-existing arthritis.

Synopsis: 
Glioblastoma multiforme is the most malignant and the most common primary brain tumour worldwide. This initial study was undertaken in order to investigate the demographics of this very malignant tumour in our population using data from the recently started Intracranial Tumour Registry at the University Hospital of the West Indies.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most malignant and most common primary brain tumour worldwide. This study was undertaken to investigate the demographics of this tumour in Jamaica as there is to date no such published data. Data from the recently started Intracranial Tumour Registry (ITR) at the University Hospital of the West Indies was used.
