Investigation of Aqueous Extract of Zingiber officinale Root Potential in the Prevention of Peptic Ulcer in Albino Rats

This study is aimed at investigating the anti-ulcerogenicand prophylactic efficacy of aqueous extract of Zingiberofficinaleon indomethacin-induced ulcer. To achieve this, thirty adultmale rats of body weight between 150 and 200g were used andwere divided into six groups of five rats each. Group I wastreated with 0.8mg/ml of Omeprazole for seven days. Group IIwas treated with a solution of 0.8 g/ml Zingiberofficinale forseven days, while group III received distilled water for sevendays. This g...

Levofloxacin induced dyslipidemia in male albino rats -

Objective: Materials and This study was aimed to investigate . whether levofloxacin perturb lipid metabolismmethods: 7.14 mg/kg body weight) of levofloxacin was administered intraperitoneally 12 hourly to Therapeutic dose (rats for 5 and 10 days. Twenty-four hours after the last levofloxacin treatment and 7 days after levofloxacin withdrawal(for a group of rats), blood and other tissues (liver, kidney, brain, heart, lung and spleen) were removed from the animalsafter an overnight fast and ana...

Mechanisms for Controlling the Synthesis of Lipids

Lipids are synthesized, transported, and recognizedby the concerted actions of numerous enzymes,binding proteins, and receptors. A comprehensiveanalysis of lipid molecules, “lipidomics,” in thecontext of genomics and proteomics is crucial tounderstanding cellular physiology and pathology;consequently, lipid biochemistry has become a majorresearch target of the postgenomic revolution andsystems biochemistry. This review is aimed atstudying the mechanisms involved in the regulation oflipids...

Prophylactic Efficacy of Aqueous Extract of Curcuma longa against Indomethacin-Induced Ulcer in Male Wistar Rats

Evaluation of the anti-ulcerogenic andprophylactic efficacy of aqueous extract ofCurcuma longa on indomethacin-induced ulcer inalbino rats was the aim of this study. Thirty adultmale rats of body weight between 150 and 200gwere used and were divided into six groups of fiverats each. Group I was treated with 0.8mg/ml ofOmeprazole for seven days. Group II was treatedwith a solution of 0.8 g/ml Curcuma longa forseven days, while group III received distilled waterfor seven days. This group served...

Toxicological assessment of the methanolic leaf extract of Bridelia ferrugelia

This study evaluated the acute and subacute toxicity effects of Bridelia ferrugelia leaf extract. Observation of the acute group showed that LD50 of the extract is greater than 2000 mg/kg. The subacute investigation was determined by administering 200 mg/kg, 400 mg/kg and 600 mg/kg of the methanolic leaf extract to male Wistar rats for 28 days with distilled water as a control. Haematological and biochemical parameters, as well as lipid levels of vital organs, were examined. Toxicological eva...

Application of Very Low Frequency (VLF) Electromagnetic method to mineral exploration (Mining Geophysics) with case study review.

The Very Low Frequency Electromagnetic (VLF-EM) method, which enables surveying without contact with the ground, is suitable for ground surveys in a wide area and has been used in mapping geology and in mineral exploration for decades. The technique makes use of signal radiation from military navigation radio transmitters operating in the frequency range of 15-30 kHz. When the electromagnetic wave impinges on the surface it is both reflected back into the air and refracted into the earth. By ...

The Geology and Petrography of Precambrian Basement Rocks of Gbunchu and Environs in Akwanga Local Government Area, Nassarawa State, North-Central Nigeria.

ABSTRACTThe study area is located within the north-central Nigeria in Akwanga town, Nassarawa state. It lies between Latitudes 8°55'N to 9°00'N and Longitudes 8°25'E to 8°30'E. It is underlain by crystalline rocks of the Basement Complex “sensu stricto”, which comprises of migmatitic banded gneiss, biotite gneiss and gneissic granite. Based on the field characteristics and petrographic studies the area is believed to have attained a very high regional metamorp...

Investigation Of The Infestation Of Dermestes Maculatus On Clarias Gariepinus At different intervals

Eating dried fish is one prevalent dietary habit for local Nigerians due to the requisite for nutritional quality, infested or not. The aim of this study is to investigate the infestation of smoked ready-to-eat dried Clarias gariepinus obtained from Oja-Oba market in Ikare, Ondo State, Nigeria and fresh catfishes processed in the laboratory by Dermestes maculatus at different intervals. A total of twenty catfish was obtained for the study. The twenty catfish were divided into 2 groups of ten ...

Edible Insects Rearing Methods And Incorporation Into Commercial Food Products a Critical Review

Insects are appealing assemblage of organisms classified under the phylum Arthropoda and considered the most diversified in nature. A sum of 2-3 million are estimated on earth constituting as much as 80% - more than 90% of all species in the animal kingdom. Varied nutritional aspects range from high quality protein, natural fat, vitamins, fibre contents and diverse minerals. That they are of great taste, confirmed delicacy and reduce to minimal the climatic change impacts from increasing worl...

Incorporated Edible Insect based Foods The How And Why

Edible insects are appealing assemblage of organisms with varied nutritional aspects ranging from high quality protein, natural fat, vitamins, fibre contents and diverse minerals. It is now a known fact that the world populace would crawl to insect-based foods after the “insect to feed the world” conference and world edible insect programmes as food shortages are alarming and climatic considerations are on the rise. With yearn for food everywhere, start-up and scaling up insect-based food...
