PALM OIL AND PALM WASTE POTENTIAL IN NIGERIA

ABSTRACTOil palm is the most important product from Nigeria that has helped to change the scenario of its agriculture and economy. Lignocellulosic biomass which is produced from the oil palm industries includes oil palm trunks (OPT), oil palm fronds (OPF), empty fruit bunches (EFB), and palm pressed fibres (PPF), palm shells and palm oil mill effluent (POME). However, the presence of these oil palm wastes has created a major disposal problem. The fundamental principles of waste management are...

MANAGEMENT OF JAUNDICE IN NEONATES

ABSTRACTJaundice occurs in most newborn infants. Bilirubin is the main cause of jaundice. Bilirubin which is responsible for the yellow colour of jaundice is a normal part of of the pigment released from the breakdown of ‘used’ red blood cells. Most jaundice is benign, but because of the potential toxicity of bilirubin, newborn infants must be monitored to identify those who might develop severe hyperbilirubinemia and, in rare cases, acute bilirubin encephalopathy or kernicterus. The focu...

MALARIAL HEPATOPATHY IN FALCIPARUM MALARIA

ABSTRACTJaundice is one of the common manifestations of severe Falciparium malaria but hepatitis is unusual. Although hepatic dysfunction is unusual and hepatic encephalopathy is almost never seen in malaria, yet, cases of hepatic dysfunction are being increasingly reported in patients with P. falciparium infection, from different parts of the world. The extent of hepatocellular dysfunction varies from mild abnormalities in liver function tests to hepatic failure. Patients with hepatocellular...

HEALTH BENEFIT OF HONEY

ABSTRACTHoney on natural substances produced by honey bees is composed of a complex mixture of carbohydrates, water and a small amount of protein, vitamins, minerals and pherolite compounds. Fructose, glucose and maltose are among the various types of sugar present in honey. Used as both food and medicine, honey has been associated with improved antioxidant capacity, modulation of immune system. The aim of this article was to review the benefit of natural honey intake on human health with par...

DANGERS ASSOCIATED WITH ABUSE OF CONTRACEPTIVE PILLS.

ABSTRACTContraceptive is a pill which is been used to keep from getting pregnant if you have unprotected intercourse. Studies indicate that contraceptive pills are 75% effective in preventing pregnancy if taken within the first 72 hours of unprotected intercourse. Contraceptive pills are most effective when used as soon as possible after having unprotected sex. Two types of this pill (contraceptive) include; combined oral contraceptive pills and progestin only pills. Combined oral contracepti...

BREEDING METHOD FOR VEGETATIVELY PROPAGATED CROPS SOMATIC MUTATIONS. EXAMPLES; SUGAR CANE AND POTATO

ABSTRACTMany agricultural crops of economic importance are vegetatively propagated. This work was done to elaborate more on vegetatively propagated crops, importance and developing new cultivars of vegetative propagated crops. Vegetative propagation aids to fix favorable combinations of important traits, very specific chemical compositions, superior genetic variance interactions and high levels of heterozygosity. Breeding vegetative propagated crops involve few genetic crossing and genetic co...

Endocrine and Neuroendocrine Factors Regulating Testicular Functions

The spermatogenic and steroidogenic functions of the testes is finely regulated by the brain (on stimulation), the master endocrine gland, and local factors produced by the testes. During intrauterine life the proliferation of primitive germ cells and the formation of the testes is carefully directed by testosterone, secreted by leydig cell on activation by human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) released by the placenta. After birth, hormonal regulation of testes stop and the testes remain quice...

TOXIN ASSOCIATED WITH DIARRHEAL DISEASES

INTRODUCTION Toxins are poisonous substances produced within living cells or organisms and can include various classes of small molecules or proteins that cause disease on contact. The severity and type of diseases caused by toxins can range from minor effects to deadly effects. The organisms which are capable of producing toxins include bacteria, fungi, algae, and plants. Some of the major types of toxins include, but are not limited to, environmental, marine, and microbial toxin...

Compare and Contrast Various Schools of Thought in Manipulation

The various school of thoughts in manipulation presented different aproach in tackling manipulation. cyriax, maitland, kaltenburn presented their aproach. Kaltenborn translatoric movement; this are passive accessory movements that are divided into TRACTION ( separation) occurring perpendicular to the joint surface and GLIDING (parallel movement) which takes place parallel to the joint surface. Translatoric movement are used in both movement and treatment ( kaltenborn,1986. Cyriax contributi...

THE PHYSIOLOGICAL ROLE OF OREXIN TO THE HUMAN SYSTEM.

ABSTRACT Orexins are recently discovered neuropeptides synthesized by neurons located in the posteriolateral hypothalamus. There are about 10,000 to 20,000 of these neurons in the hypothalamus and their axons extend throughout the brain and spinal cord where their receptors are located. The word Orexin is a Greek word reflecting orexigenic (appetite stimulating) activity of hormone. There are two types of Orexi...

CONTROL OF BRAIN DEVELOPMENT, FUNCTIONAND BEHAVIOUR BY THE MICROBIOME

Humans share an intimate and life-long partnership with a myriad of resident microbial species (fungi, protists and viruses), collectively referred to as the microbiota (Sampson & Marmanian, 2015). The microbiome co-evolved with its human host (Chrobak et al., 2016) and is transferred from the mother to the baby during labor, with method of delivery, diet, drugs and medications (especially antibiotics) as the major contributing factor to the process of microbiome development in the infant...

Effect of insulin treatment on islet function

ABSTRACTInsulin treatment is the use of insulin and similar proteins to treat diseases including diabetes and its acutecomplications as an effective way of lowering blood glucose level in individuals with impaired Islet beta cellfunctions. The Islets (Island) of Langerhans are small clusters of cells scattered within the pancreas of mostvertebrates to bring about the secretion of the polypeptide hormone, Insulin, which is responsible for theevacuation of excess glucose in the blood stream whi...
