BMC Ecology 2007, 7:3 (27 March 2007)
For southern elephant seals of Macquarie Island in the Southern Ocean, local environment and population density affect juvenile survival and these factors must be considered together for accurate modeling of survival trends.

Association between dietary fat and skin cancer in an Australian population using case-control and cohort study designs
BMC Cancer 2006, 6:141 (30 May 2006)
Contrary to previous reports, high fat intake does not increase the risk of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer and might even play a protective role against skin cancer development.

A randomized trial of artemether-lumefantrine versus mefloquine-artesunate for the treatment of uncomplicated multi-drug resistant Plasmodium falciparum on the western border of Thailand
Malaria Journal 2005, 4:46 (22 September 2005)
A comparative study of the efficacy and tolerability of two artemisinin combination therapies which are very useful for treatment of P. falciparum malaria multidrug-resistant in Asia. These two ACTs are, currently, the best treatment for non-severe falciparum malaria and this trial provides base-line data for future longitudinal surveillance of efficacy.
