Effects of aqueous extract of Basella alba leaves on haematological and biochemical parameters in albino rats

The effects of the aqueous leaf extract of Basella alba on haematological and biochemical parameterswere studied in Wistar strain albino rats. Twenty four (24) Wistar strain albino rats were randomlydistributed into four groups of six (6) rats each. Group I rats served as control and received 10 ml/kg ofnormal saline, while group II, III and IV received 60, 80 and 100 mg/kg of aqueous leaf extract of B. alba,respectively, for two weeks.

Long Term Consumption of Coconut Oil Diet Increased Anxiety Related Behaviour in CD1 Mice

The effect of prolonged consumption of virgin coconut oil (VCO) diet on anxiety was assessed in CD1 mice using the Open field (OF), Elevated plus maze (EPM) and Light/dark box (LD box) tests. Thirty male CD1 mice (28.4-32.5 g bw) divided into 3 groups (n=10 each) were given normal rodent chow (control), 5% (w/w) and 20% (w/w) VCO diet respectively and water ad libitum for 23 days. The OF test showed increased grooming (p< 0.05) in both 5% and 20% VCO groups versus control, and h...
