International Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2012,
Abstract: This study was carried out to investigate the blood glucose reducing effect (hypoglycemic effect) of stem bark extract of Acacia polyacantha on normal wistar rats over a 24 h period. Three groups of previously fasted wistar rats, with each group made up of 5 rats each were administered with 100, 200 and 400 mg/kg p.o of aqueous methanolic stem bark extract of A. polyacantha. The hypoglycemic effect of A . polyacantha stem bark aqueous methanolic extract was compared with that of Metformin (250 mg/kg) in fasted normal rats. Following treatment, relatively moderate to high doses of A. polyacantha (100, 200 and 400 mg/kg p.o.) produced a dose-dependent, significant reduction (p<0.05) in blood glucose levels of fasted normal rats. The three doses of the extract did not significantly alter the blood glucose levels after 2 h of extract administration. After 8 and 16 h of extract administration at a dose of 200 mg/kg significantly (p<0.05) decreased the blood glucose levels when compared to control, while the dose of 400 mg/kg significantly decreased the blood glucose levels after 4, 8 and 16 h of extract administration when compared with the control group. The Preliminary phytochemical screening revealed the presence of alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, triterpenoids, anthraquinones, steroids and saponins. The median lethal dose (LD50) in rats was calculated to be 3807.9 mg/kg body weight. In conclusion the aqueous methanolic extract of Acacia polyacantha possesses hypoglycemic activity in normoglycemic rats.
Study of the Effect of Aqueous Extract of Kolanut (Cola nitida) on Gastric Acid Secretion and Ulcer in White Wistar Rats

British Journal of Pharmacology and Toxicology , 2011,
Abstract: Generally, increase in the acid output in the body causes ulcer especially peptic ulcer. Duodenal ulcer has worldwide incidence but its incidence varies geographically and even in some country regionally. Duodenal and peptic ulcer diseases are problems of the gastrointestinal tract. Nowadays, drugs are expensive and have many side effects during treatment of any disorders. In this study the aqueous extract of cola nitida was administered to 30 Wistar rats in two phases (gastric acid secretion phase and ulceration phase). The ulcer score and gastric acidity were determined. The highest acid output was obtained with a dose of 7.5 mg/mL and the lowest with a dose of 5.0 mg/mL. However no ulceration was seen with the same doses of cola nitida, this may mean that formation of ulcerations may not be only due to increase acidity or probably the doses used was not enough to cause ulceration. Comparing this with control group gave a significant difference for the gastric acid secretion group, though there was no ulceration formed with the same dose. The result of this study showed that cola nitida induces gastric secretion.
Numerical Computations to Produce Cokeable Coal Blends at The Ajaokuta Steel Plant, Nigeria  [PDF]
Journal of Minerals and Materials Characterization and Engineering (JMMCE) , 2007, DOI: 10.4236/jmmce.2007.62010
Abstract: A mathematical model and its associated numerical search algorithm has been developed for routine coal blending to include local coals for cokemaking at the Nigerian blast furnace-based Ajaokuta Steel Plant. A typical binary blend proposed using the model includes 28.38% and 29.00% of the ash- laden Lafia and non-caking Okaba coals, respectively. The proposed blends satisfy basic chemical and mechanical strength requirements at the lowest cost per ton of coal. The blending calculations showed that only low ash, low sulphur, medium volatile and high vitrinite reflectance prime grade coals such as the UK Ogmore should be imported for blending with the ash-laden medium coking Lafia coal. When the proposed blends are successfully confirmed with bench and pilot scale carbonization tests, cokemaking at Ajaokuta will be conducted with substantial savings in foreign exchange.

Journal of Minerals and Materials Characterization and Engineering (JMMCE) , 2008, DOI: 10.4236/jmmce.2008.74027
Abstract: The weakly caking Australian Agro-Allied coal sample mixed with 7% un-reactive coke breeze was subjected to stamped charging prior to carbonization for 22 hours in a 250kg pilot plant to improve the resulting coke strength. The coal was carbonized with a bulk density of 1,000kg/m3 and heating flue temperature of 1,340℃. The screen distribution analysis and the micum tests conducted on the coke gave M10 and M40 of 15.90% and 73.20%, respectively. These results show that the Agro-Allied coke produced is inferior to the coke from a normal top charged counterpart with M10 and M40 indices of 15.40% and 78.20%, respectively and do not satisfy the requirements for the blast furnace ironmaking process. These results thus suggest that the stamped charging coking improvement method designed for high caking, high volatile coals may not be able to improve the strength of coke resulting from a weakly caking, medium volatile coal mixed with coke breeze.

Adebambo,A.O.; ,;
Archivos de Zootecnia , 2009, DOI: 10.4321/S0004-05922009000400001
Abstract: mitochondrial dna (mtdna) d-loop segment was sequenced for a total of 98 individuals of domestic chicken from south western nigeria. domestic chicken populations were: anak titan (israeli breed,n= 1), frizzle (n= 16), opipi (n= 5), frizzlexopipi (n= 5), fulani (n= 4), giriraja (indian breed,n= 3), normal (n= 55), naked neck (n= 8), yaffa (n= 1). the sequences of the first 397 nucleotides were used for the analysis. seventeen haplotypes were identified in the samples, 15 for nigerian indigenous chicken population, 1 for giriraja and 1 for anak titan from 23 polymorphic sites. phylogenetic analysis shows that nigerian indigenous and anak titan chicken were all grouped under clade iv, while the indian giriraja was under clade iiic. clade iv had 16 haplotypes, while clade iiic had one haplotype. amova analysis indicates that 97.32% of the total sequence variation between haplotypes was present within population and 2.68% between populations. our results suggest single multiple maternal origins for the south western nigerian domestic chicken.
Malaria morbidity amongst hospital workers in Ilorin
A.O. Awoyemi
African Journal of Clinical and Experimental Microbiology , 2003,
Abstract: A study of malaria as a cause of morbidity among the staff of the University of Ilorin Teaching Hospital, Ilorin, Nigeria was carried out from August to October 2001. Patients attending a community based Health Centre was used as control. Malaria accounted for 43.0% of illnesses among the workers and 36.7% in the general public. Malaria was responsible for nearly two-thirds of sickness absence and for 48.6% of days lost due to illnesses. Also the disease was responsible for 50 percent or more of sickness absence among all categories of workers when analyzed by occupations. These findings show that malaria could disrupt the health care delivery of a country since it could affect even health workers. By extension too, it could result in the disruption of the economic activities of the country and result in low productivity if not effectively controlled. It I therefore recommended that all efforts at effective controlling malaria should be put in place in Nigeria. (Af. J. of Clinical and Experimental Microbiology: 2003 4(1): 18-23)
