A study on the value of antimycoplasmal programmes under conditions of mycoplasmosis endemicity in laying chickens
O.A. Oladele, D.F. Adene
Nigerian Veterinary Journal , 2002,
Abstract: The comparative efficacy of 3 antimycoplasmals-Tiamutinò, Rovamycinò, and Tylanò in the control of Mycoplasmosis in 3 identical groups of laying chickens, under open-sided tropical housing conditions was investigated during 20 weeks of egg production. The results showed that, egg production was superior in the medicated groups, especially the Tiamutinò group A which showed consistent superiority to the untreated control group D in the examined parameters. Thus, the total eggs produced were 43,680, 42,150, 21,360 and 17060 for the 3 treated groups A, B, C and untreated group D respectively. Similarly, hen-day percentage production at peak were 82.4%, 80.9%, 78.7% and 78.6%. The gross benefits margin from eggs were N19.70, N3.03, N4.14 and N0.00, for A, B, C and D respectively. Immunological response in terms of Newcastle disease-heamagglutination inhibition mean geometric titers averaged 6.0, 5.7, 5.6 and 5.5 for A, B, C and D respectively. These findings are therefore indicative of the potential value of a preventive antimycoplasmal programme in laying chickens. KEY WORDS: Antimycoplasmal, prophylaxis, egg production.

Abstract: Four groups of ten-day-old broilers each were vaccinated at 7 and 14 days post hatch (PH) against infectious bursal disease IBD, using the local IBD vaccine (VOM & Nigeria). The vaccine was administered using different routes; intramuscular, subcutaneous and oral. 10- day old broiler was randomly sampled from a group of 40 for the presence of IBD antibodies using qualitative and quantitative agar gel precipitation test (AGPT). The maternal antibodies in the chicks were variable, low and waned completely 12 days post hatch {PH). The group that received subcutaneous route of vaccination (sc/sc) gave consistently higher antibody titers than the oral and intramuscular route in post vaccination days. All the groups including the unvaccinated control were challenged 16 days post vaccination with a field strain. All the routes were appreciably protective (90%) against the field strain with the unvaccinated control group recording 30% mortality. However, subcutaneous route had a complete protection (100%). The gross and microscopic lesions seen in the study were consistent with IBDV. This study has shown that the maternal antibodies in the broiler chicks were low, variable and waned completely by 12 days post hatch. The subcutaneous route of vaccination achieved better response and protection when given at day 7 and day 14-post hatch. (Af. J. of Clinical and Experimental Microbiology: 2002 3(2): 95-97)
Impact of Avian Influenza in Some States of Nigeria
L. Saidu,A.M. Wakawa,P.A. Abdu,D.F. Adene
International Journal of Poultry Science , 2008,
Abstract: Cases of Avian Influenza (AI) outbreaks reported and confirmed were extracted from the records of control committees on AI in Kano and Katsina States, Veterinary Teaching Hospital of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Pan-African Control of Epizootics (PACE) project office at Kaduna. Information on Al outbreaks in Jigawa State were obtained through a questionnaire. A total of 480,378 birds were lost in 34 outbreaks in the four states under study between the period of January and March 2006. Chickens accounted for more than 99% of all the birds affected followed by guinea fowls and turkeys. More than 60% of the birds affected were adults. The concentrations of poultry farms in Kano metropolis particularly along Gwarzo road where the epidemic was first noticed might have been responsible for the fast spread of the disease within Kano metropolis. It is a common practice to find geese, muscovey ducks and turkeys in one farm in the study area. This practice makes the chickens and turkeys more prone to the disease. From the tract of outbreaks It is possible that the disease spread from Jigawa State to Kano state and from Kano State to other States in the study area and other parts of the country through trade in live birds and poultry by products. For proper diagnosis and control of AI in Nigeria, poultry farmers should be educated on the necessity for prompt disease reporting to veterinarians and appropriate authorities.

Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2012,
Abstract: Blood samples from 184 adult indigenous Nigerian chickens were collected at three locations in Ibadan, Nigeria. The serum from each sample was evaluated for Avian Leukosis Virus (ALV) P-27 antigen by the Antigen-ELISA method. An overall prevalence of 70.7% was obtained as it ranges between 63.3-90% in the three locations used. Fifty-six samples (21.9%) with ELISA units (EUs) less than 10 were regarded as negative. Out of the 128 positive sera, 24 were strongly positive, 70 were moderately positive while 34 were weakly positive. The overall mean EUs value was 52.8±24.4. These chickens had no history of vaccination against any poultry virus including ALV and ALV has not been previously reported in indigenous chicken in Nigeria, making this the first evidence of the infection.
Plasma-deposited a-C(N): H films
Franceschini, D.F.;
Brazilian Journal of Physics , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-97332000000300007
Abstract: the growth behaviour, film structure and mechanical properties of plasma-deposited amorphous hydrogenated carbon-nitrogen films are shortly reviewed. the effect of nitrogen-containing gas addition to the deposition to the hydrocarbon atmospheres used is discussed, considering the modifications observed in the chemical composition growth kinetics, carbon atom hybridisation and chemical bonding arrangements of a-c(n):h films. the overall structure behaviour is correlated to the variation of the mechanical properties.
The rhetorical analysis of the letter to the Galatians: 1995-2005
D.F Tolmie
Acta Theologica , 2008,
Abstract: Since the publication of Betz’s article (1975) and his commentary on Galatians (1979) much research has been done on the rhetorical analysis of the Letter to the Galatians. This article presents an overview of the rhetorical analyses of Galatians from 1995 to 2005. It concludes by highlighting five characteristics of such analyses: 1. The rigid application of “the” ancient rhetorical system is on the decline; 2. Scholars who still use insights from ancient rhetoric do so in a much more nuanced way, quite often presuppose a wider background, and are more interested in functions than in categories; 3. There has been a notable increase in the use of rhetorical approaches that were not based on ancient rhetoric; 4. The fact that Galatians is a letter has received more serious consideration; 5. A new issue that has been raised is the applicability of an “evaluative” approach to Paul’s argumentation and persuasive strategy.
Die impak van metodologie op die verstaan van die Nuwe Testament
D.F Tolmie
Acta Theologica , 2005,
Abstract: During the previous century many new methods for interpreting the New Testament were developed. In this article it is asked if new methods always enable better insight into the New Testament. Although it is conceded that this is not always the case, it is argued that the correct application of new methods can indeed facilitate new insights into the New Testament. This is then illustrated by examples from the narratological analysis of the Fourth Gospel and the rhetorical analysis of the Letter to the Galatians.
The interpretation and translation of galatians 5:12
D.F Tolmie
Acta Theologica , 2009,
Abstract: As is evident from commentaries on Galatians and from various English translations, scholars do not agree on the meaning, rhetorical labelling and translation of the wish expressed by Paul in Galatians 5:12 ( [Ofelon kai; ajpokovyontai oiJ ajnastatou` nte” uJma`”). In this article various interpretations of this verse are considered; its rhetorical labelling is discussed; and suggestions are made as to the best way in which it may be translated into English.

Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2012, DOI: 10.3923/javaa.2010.2401.2404
Abstract: The effects of treatment methods on the nutritive value of Cotton Seed Cake (CSC) for laying hens were examined. Olympia laying hens (n = 96) were assigned randomly to a 2x3 factorial combination of fermented or unfermented CSC supplemented with enzyme, Vitamin E and ferrous sulphate over a 4 week feeding period. CSC was incorporated at 15% in the diets. Results showed no significant differences (p>0.05) in feed intake, body weight gain and egg weight due to treatments. However, hen day egg production was significantly reduced (p<0.05) among dietary treatments compared with the control. Layers fed on unfermented CSC+Vitamin E and unfermented CSC+FeSO4 had the lowest (p<0.05) values for packed cell volume and haemoglobin. Treatment differences in red blood cell and white blood cell were not significant (p>0.05). Serum concentration of total protein among dietary treatments was lower (p<0.05) than the control while albumin and cholesterol values were similar (p>0.05) for all treatments. Generally, activities of alanine and aspartate aminotransferases increased (p<0.05) among CSC dietary treatments compared with the control diet. The interaction between CSC form and additives had no significant effect on any of the parameters. The results of this study indicate that the treatment methods employed for CSC could not significantly improve its nutritive value for egg production at 15% level in the diet of laying hen.

Abstract: The translation of [foreign font omitted]-phrases in the New Testament In most cases translators translate the [foreign font omitted] phrases in the New Testament literally. In this article such an approach is questioned, in particular when a translator wishes to translate in such a way that the meaning of the original text is transmitted accurately to the reader. In order to help translators to translate the [foreign font omitted] phrases in the New Testament in a meaningful way, the possible meaning these phrases may have is categorised as follows: [foreign font omitted] phrases in which [foreign font omitted] functions as the (direct) object of an event; [foreign font omitted] phrases in which a movement towards [foreign font omitted] can be detected; [foreign font omitted] phrases that are used instrumentally; [foreign font omitted] phrases indicating state/status; phrases that are used to indicate cause. In each case several examples are discussed.
