AN OVERVIEW OF TUMOUR MARKERS

ABSTRACT Tumor Markers comprise a wide spectrum of biomacromolecules synthesized in excess concentration by a wide variety of neoplastic cells. The markers could be endogenous products of highly active metabolic malignant cells or the products of newly switched on genes, which remained unexpressed in early life or newly acquired antigens at cellular and sub-cellular levels. The appearance of tumor marker and their concentration are related to the genesis and growth of malignant ...

PROXIMATE AND SENSORY CHARACTERISTICS OF COOKIES FROM WHEAT AND TIGER NUT CHAFF FLOUR BLEND

ABSTRACTThe proximate and sensory characteristics of cookies from wheat and tiger nut chaff flour blend. Tigernut chaff was obtained, incorporated into wheat flour in the ratio (90:10, 80:20, 70:30, and 60:40). Cookies was produced from the blends using standard method. The cookie samples were analyzed for the proximate composition and sensory properties. The proximate composition showed the values for Protein, fat, fibre, ash, moisture, and carbohydrate ranged between 8.11 to 9.98, 7.59 to 9...

Effects of White Grub Extracts on Serum Glucose and Lipid Profile of Alloxan Induced Diabetes in Rats

Diabetes mellitus is a syndrome characterized by chronic hyperglycemia and disturbances of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism associated with an absolute or relative deficiency in insulin secretion or insulin action. To investigate the effect of white grub extract on alloxan-induced diabetic rats. Diabetes was induced in rats after 18 hours of fasting intraperitoneally by alloxan (80 mg/kg). A total of 40 rats used, were divided into eight groups (G1- GVIII) of five rats each. GII-G...

The effect of some weather parameters on flight operations

CHAPTER ONEINTRODUCTION1.1. BACKGROUND TO THE STUDYAviation probably more than any other mode of transportation is tremendouslyaffected by weather. Every phase of flight operation that is from the take off to thelanding and also  when aircraft is in-flight hasthe potential  to be influenced byweather (Kulesa, e2013). Aircraft   travels   through   the   atmosphere.   The   atmosphere   varies   verticall...

The Effect Of Angular Stress Performance On The Performance Of A Nickel Electroplated Steel Substrate In A Corrosive Environments

Investigation of the low carbon steel bends into different angles with dimension 50 mm X 20 mm and then plated in Nickel bath at 3V for 25 minutes subjected to NaCl and H2SO4 corrosive environment.This research investigated the corrosion resistance of nickel- plated and un-plated low carbon steeland in a corrosive environment of H2SO4 and NaCl solutions. Weight loss method was used forestimation the corrosion rate in the current study. Low carbon steel sample was nickel electroplated at&...

CYBERCRIME AND THE THREAT TO CYBERSECURITY: A STUDY OF NIGERIA

The role of information and communication technology (ICT) in this present dispensation cannot be over emphasised as the world is viewed as a global village and people as virtual villagers. Cybercrime is a threat to individuals, a nation’s security and financial health as well. The economic loss caused by cybercrimes like phishing, social media identity theft, insider threat, cyber terrorism and the cost of system repairs caused by cyber-attacks runs into billions of naira every year. ...

EFFECT OF SOAKING PERIOD ON THE FUNCTIONAL PROPERTIES OF OGI PRODUCED FROM SOME SELECTED MAIZE VARIETIES

ABSTRACT The research evaluated the effect of soaking period on the functional properties of ogi produced from selected maize varieties (B2W, E1Y, N6W and R6Y). The maize varieties were steeped for 0, 12, 24 and 36th hour respectively and processed into ogi making use of the traditional method and thereafter dried at 550C. The ogi powder obtained was analyzed for functional and proximate properties. The result showed that the bulk density ranged from 0.80 – 1.14g/ml. Sample N6...

THE CHEMICAL QUALITY OF WELL WATER IN ABUJA COMMUNITY SUBURB OF IKORODU

ABSTRACT Well water samples were collected from different household wells in Ifedapo Estate in Abuja community of Ikorodu Local Government Area, Lagos State, Nigeria. The samples of the well were analyzed for their physiochemical properties. The physiochemical properties of the water samples were analyzed using standard methods. The pH and Temperature ranged from 6.41-7.11 and 26.79-27.370C respectively. The bicarbonate and sulphates value were in the range of (28.41-31.41mg/l) ...

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF CAKE FROM WHEAT FLOUR USING AVOCADO PASTE AS FAT REPLACER

ABSTRACT Avocado (Persea Americana) paste was utilized to substitute wheat (Triticum aestivum) flour as fat replacer in the production of cake. This study examined the effect of avocado paste substitutions at various proportions in production of cake. The proportions were 100% wheat flour, 95:5%, 90 :10%, 85 : 15%, 80 : 20%, 75 : 25% and 70 : 30% avocado paste. Colour analysis and texture of the cake was evaluated. Results shows L*, a* and b* value of the cakes ranged from 48.56-...

Consumption of green tea (Camellia sinensis)

ABSTRACT Consumption of green tea (Camellia sinensis) may provide protection against chronic diseases, including cancer. Green tea polyphenols are believed to be responsible for this cancer preventive effect, and the antioxidant activity of the green tea polyphenols has been implicated as a potential mechanism. This hypothesis has been difficult to study in vivo due to metabolism of these compounds and poor understanding of the redox environment in vivo. Green tea polyphenols can be...

Phytoremediation of Crude Oil Contaminated Soil with Carpet Grass (Axonopuscompressus) in the Niger Delta Region of Nigeria

CHAPTER ONE1.0 INTRODUCTIONSoil contamination is one of the major environmental problems facing the world today.Contamination of soil by hydrocarbons (mostly petroleum hydrocarbons) is becomingprevalent worldwide (Njoku et al., 2008). This is probably due to heavy dependence onpetroleum as a major source of energy throughout the world, rapid industrialization,population growth and complete disregard for the environm...

Nosocomial Infections as a factor in the spread of infectious diseases

  ABSTRACTThe basic idea of healthcare facilities which is to make people well is on the verge of being defeated as a result of patients contracting infections while in healthcare settings. Nosocomial infections are infections acquired by patients or healthcare workers while they are in healthcare facilities, including, hospitals, dental offices, nursing homes and doctors’ waiting rooms. Infectious diseases are diseases caused by pathogenic microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, par...
