ANTIBACTERIAL AND ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES OF THE LEAF EXTRACTS OF Solanecio biafrae AGAINST SOME SELECTED CLINICAL ISOLATES

An average Nigerian household consumes vegetables of various kinds but are ignorant of their antibacterial properties and other benefits. There is also an increase in the prevalence of multidrug resistant strains of bacteria which has raised the spectra of untreatable bacterial infections. This challenge has requested for urgency to search for new infection-fighting strategies. This study therefore investigated the antibacterial activities of the ethanolic and acetonic leaf extracts of ...

The aftermath of COVID-19 pandemic in the Nigerian Society

The world economy has been crippled by a novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) which also put over 210 countries of the world in the map of epidemiology, in this case, our country Nigeria and Ekiti State as well is not left behind.As all schools are forced to close to curb the spread of this virus, students are at home, saving the world, trying and putting things in places.Executive of Social Sciences Students' Association (SOSSA), Ekiti State University chapter duly led by Hon.

Intravenous Ascorbic Acid (IVAA) for COVID-19 Supportive Treatment in Hospitalized COVID-19 Patients (Based on use in China and US settings)

Abstract: Intravenous ascorbic acid (IVAA) is a well-known intervention in medicine, which currently is rarely used in US hospitals. Due to the unusual and extreme clinical demands of hospitalized COVID-19 patients,IVAA has been implemented in Chinese hospitals, and data published by the “Expert Group on Clinical Treatment of New Corona Virus Disease in Shanghai” (direct translation) details the use of IVAA as safe and effective adjunctive care of hospitalized COVID-19 patients. In th...

Microbial Analysis and Proximate Composition of Boiled and Fried Local Cheese (WARA)

Fried cheese locally called Wara gets spoiled when attacked by pathogenic bacteria, as a result of poor hygiene practice by the producer and handlers. Wara samples were bought in Ilesha at Atakumosa market square Osun-state. This research was designed to isolate and enumerate microorganisms using standard microbial methods, proximate composition and the nutritional composition of boiled local and fried cheese (wara). Proximate analysis was carried out to determine nutritional composit...

ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae

Background: Resistance to extended-spectrum cephalosporins among Enterobacteriaceae has been reported yetthey serve as the last line treatment for severe infections in Uganda and other countries. This resistance often leadsto nosocomial infection outbreaks and therapeutic failures from multidrug resistant bacteria. The main objective ofthis study was to determine the prevalence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceaein clinical samples of patients in various wa...

Amylase Production by Solid State Fermentation of Corn (Zea Mays) Stem Using Fusarium and Mucor

Abstract The study aimed at producing amylase from corn stem using Mucor and Fusarium in solid state fermentation. The Fungi used in this study were isolated from the rhizosphere of the corn plant. Solid state technique was adopted for the fermentation process using spore suspension as inoculum. Various fermentation parameters such as  incubation days, addition of salt supplement, substrate concentration, mycelia suspension and temperature were optimized during fermentation with the...

Preliminary Investigation of the Possible Pathogenic Bacterial Contents of Some Local Non-Alcoholic Drinks

The aim of this study was to determine the safety profiles of some local non-alcoholic drinks sold within Zaria locality by isolating and characterizing the possible pathogenic bacteria found in them. For this aim, 17 samples of Zobo drink, 19 samples of Kunu zaki drink, and 15 samples of Ginger drink were analysed. Among the 51 total samples, Klebsiella pneumoniae was isolated from one Ginger drink sample; Serratia marcescens was isolated from two Zobo drink samples and two Ginger drink sa...

Your body fights it off within a few months, and you’re immune for the rest of your life.Hepatitis B is a contagious liver infsection caused by the hepatitis B virus (HBV).  ...

Evaluation of Inhibitory Zone Diameter (IZD) of crude Spondias mombin (Linn.) extracts (root, leaf, and stem bark) against thirty infectious clinical and environmental isolates.

AbstractThe purpose of this work is to evaluate the Inhibitory Zone Diameter (IZD) of crude Spondias mombin extracts against thirty infectious clinical and environmental organisms. The root, leaf and stem-bark of S. mombin were harvested and air-dried. The dried S. mombin was milled into powdered form using manual grinder. Powdered S. mombin (1kg) each of the different S. mombin parts was extracted with 3 L of 70% (v/v) ethanol, ethyl acetate and distilled water for 72 h at room temperature....
