Drug Release Agents

          ABSRACTThe purpose of this research work was to examine drug release agents and the several delivery systems for which both natural and synthetic polymers have been employed for their design and fabrications. Under these facts, a large number of delivery systems made from synthetic polymer materials were found to be non-biodegradable, non-biocompatible and thus tend to impose both adverse mechanical and physiological effects on man when consumed especially o...

Adam-Bashforth Iterative Scheme for Initial Value Problems

ABSTRACTIn this project work, we studied the Adams-Bashforth scheme for solving initial value problems. We gave an indebt explanation on the Adam-Bashforth scheme, its consistency, stability, and convergence, the two and three step methods were also derived. Numerical solutions were obtained using four (4) examples.TABLE OF CONTENTS Cover page                        i                                                                            ...

AN ILLUSTRATION OF THE USE OF COGNITIVE INTERACTION IN NANOROBOTICS AN AREA OF NANOTECHNOLOGY FOR MEDICAL DEVELOPMENT

ABSTRACTFor many decades, nanotechnology has been developed with cooperation from researchers in several fields of studies including physics, chemistry, biology, material science, engineering, and computer science and it presents a wide range of problems and opportunities not just diverse issues, but issues of different kinds. In this project, we explore the nanotechnology development community in the area of Nano robotics and its functionality in both the science and medical world hoping is ...

Quantum Gravity in a Nutshell 1

This math-free book is a good introduction to quantum gravity and has a lot of interesting history about the development of the theory since 1899. It's an informal introduction to a very difficult and doubtfully intelligible theory.- doubted even by its most ingenious contributors. The reader should expect that he/she will have to concentrate hard on what Balungi says but the rewards are significant. He is a talented physicist and a good writer. If you read it carefully and st...

Modelling Consumer Price Index (CPI) in Kenya for the Period 2000 to 2017 Using Autoregressive Integrated Moving Averages--ARIMA(p, d, q)

ABSRACTThe Kenyan CPI data for the period January 2000 to December 2017, obtained from the KNBS website, was the variable of interest, modelled as a time series variable. R was the package used for analysis. Descriptive statistics such as the mean, median, ACF, PACF, time series plots, histograms, lagged scatter plots and qqplots were employed to assess the non-stationarity of CPI after which appropriate smoothing techniques such as differencing were made use of to detrend the data. Formally,...

Carriage of β-Lactamase and Antibiotics Resistance Plasmids by Strains of Staphylococcus Aureus Isolated from Hospital Patients in Ekpoma

ABSTRACTA total of 100 subjects were screened for  S. aureus strains, thirty (30) S. aureus isolates were obatained. The carriage of β-lactamase among the 30 isolates was determined by using starch iodine agar plate method. It was found that 19(63.3%) of the S. aureus strains were β-lactamase producing. Plasmid curing of the β-lactamase producing isolates was done using acredine orange supplimented nutrient agar to determine if their β-lactamase producing capability was plasmid mediated ...

Geochemistry and Engineering Studies on Clay Deposits Around the Ahoko Area, Southern Bida Basin, Kogi State, Nigeria

A  detailed  geologic  mapping  of  clay  deposits  in  the  Patti  Formation  around  the  Ahoko  area  in Kogi  State  (north-central  Nigeria)  was  carried  out  on  a  scale  of  1:12,500.  The  study  area  lies within  the  Lokoja  Sub-basin  of  the  Bida  Basin  between  longitudes  60  51l  and  60  53l  E  and  latitudes 80  18l and  80 19l  N  covering  a  total  land  area  of  about  6.85km2  of  the  Koton-Karfi  N-E...

CHI-SQUARE ANALYSIS ON THE EFFECT OF LACK OF PRACTICAL TOOLS ON THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF POLYTECHNIC STUDENTS

ABSTRACT    This research work was focused on the EFFECT OF LACK OF PRACTICAL TOOLS ON THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF STUDENTS in The Ibarapa Polytechnic, Eruwa.    The objectives and purpose of the research work is to determine whether factors such as lack of practical tools, lack of enough practical lecturers, improvising of practical tools has any effect on the academic performance of students, also, to determine if students can cope with academics without adequate practical and equipme...

Development of a Web Based Human Right Violation Reporting System for National Human Rights Commission

This project intends to solve the problem of petition report submission to public government agencies by the members of the general public through the design and implementation of a Proposed Human Rights Violation Act Online Reporting Portal System for case submissions to the Office of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC). The system will be developed to be an online web-based platform that will allow petition reporters to submit their cases. The submitted documents will be automa...

Co-infection of HIV and Some Opportunistic Pathogens Among Patients Attending Two Referral Hospitals in Akure

ABSTRACTThe  seroprevalence  studies  of  Plasmodium  falciparum,  Mycobacterium  tuberculosis  and Samonella typhi, HIV and co-infections by the four pathogens were carried out among patients attending Don Bosco Medical centre Akure and Ondo State Specialist Hospital, Akure. Venous blood were collected from a total of 500 randomly selected patients aged 1 to ≥ 91 years  that attended the hospitals  for routine medical check up. Diagnostic test kits (“Determine” and ‟Unigold...

Appraisal of the Principles and Practices of Electronic Health Records (EHR) In Public Hospital. A Case of Narok County Hospital

The paper tries to investigate all the principles and practices in the management of the electronic medical records.ABSTRACTFor many years, health records have been controlled through paper based systems which are vulnerable to destruction, wear and loss hence hinders adequate usability, retrieval and access. In addition, this made health processes to be time consuming and expensive, making the manual records more unreliable. In bid to mitigate these challenges, the Ministry of Health in Keny...

Design and Implementation of a Student Chat Information System

ABSTRACTBasically, it has been observed over the years that number of students live far away from the educational institutions as well as the lecturer who are few times occupied. Thus the main objective of this research work is to develop a general purpose interactive information system where information becomes easier and feedback faster, course materials and assignments also gotten at any location regardless of the time. The student chat information system makes use of Object Oriented Analy...

PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS AND ISOLATION OF COMPONENTS OF STEM-BARK OF CHRYSOPHYLLUM ALBIDUM (G.Don)

Chrysophyllum albidum (Sapotaceae) is known to possess bioactive compounds belonging to important phytochemical groups. This work aims at exploring the bioactive constituents of the stem-bark of Chrysophyllum albidum, and further investigating their phytochemical compositions.
