Abstract: Inadequate attention given to the management of asthma and ways of improving treatment could be a significant factor for the increase morbidity and mortality from asthma despite major advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease. There seems to be paucity of data concerning the management pattern and burden of asthma in Africa. This study was undertaken to determine the prevalence, management pattern and the burden of asthma.This study was a cross sectional design involving clinical and lung function assessment. The diagnosis of asthma was made using the clinical features of asthma and lung function parameters (Forced expiratory volume in one second, Peak expiratory flow rate, Reversibility tests). Totally, 120 asthma patients participated in this study. All subjects completed the clinical asthma control questionnaires. All items were rated with the calculation of their mean and percentages. Student t-test was used to calculate the difference between the mean of the lung function tests for subjects and control. The prevalence of asthma among respiratory unit patients was 6.6% and higher in the first three decades of life with female preponderance (F:M=1.5-1).There is a strong family history of asthma(81.7%). Associated allergies include rhinitis (75%), pharyngitis (54%), conjunctivitis (54%) and dermatitis (30%). Percentage of asthma patients treated with bronchodilators alone (70%), combined inhaled bronchodilators and steroid (28.3%). Impaired daily activities include sports (84%), Job career (60%), Physical activity (55%), Social activity (54%), Household chores (61%), Disturbed sleep (53%), Daytime symptoms (51%), Hospitalized(50%). Subjects had significant low lung function values when compared with control (P < 0.05). The burden of asthma is very high despite the advanced knowledge of the pathophysiology and management of asthma.
Prevalence of Respiratory Symptoms among Sawmill Workers in Benin City, Nigeria

International Journal of Tropical Medicine , 2012,
Abstract: Studies elsewhere have shown that exposure to sawdust increases susceptibility to development of pulmonary symptoms but there is paucity of information on this in Benin City, Nigeria where, there are many sawmill factories. The objective of this study, was to determine the prevalence of respiratory symptoms in sawmill workers in Benin City, Nigeria. This was a cross-sectional study, in which the British Medical Research Council Questionnaire was used to obtain information on respiratory symptoms in a standardized manner in sawmill workers, who met the inclusion criteria for the study and age-matched controls. Two hundred and twenty eight sawmill workers and 371 controls with mean ages of 33.1±7.3 and 32.9±7.2 years, respectively were studied. Symptoms like cough, sputum production, breathlessness and wheeze were more common in sawmill workers compared to controls (p<0.05). Respiratory symptoms are more prevalent in sawmill workers compared to controls. Use of appropriate protective devices is advocated in order to reduce this preventable morbidity.
Long-term prognosis of depression in primary care
Bulletin of the World Health Organization , 2000, DOI: 10.1590/S0042-96862000000400005
Abstract: this article uses longitudinal data from a primary care sample to examine long-term prognosis of depression. a sample of 225 patients initiating antidepressant treatment in primary care completed assessments of clinical outcome (hamilton depression rating scale and the mood module of the structured clinical interview for dsm-iiir) 1, 3, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 24 months after initiating treatment. the proportion of patients continuing to meet criteria for major depression fell rapidly to approximately 10% and remained at approximately that level throughout follow-up. the proportion meeting criteria for remission (hamilton depression score of 7 or less) rose gradually to approximately 45%. long-term prognosis (i.e. probability of remission at 6 months and beyond) was strongly related to remission status at 3 months (odds ratio 3.65; 95% confidence interval, 2.81-4.76) and only modestly related to various clinical characteristics assessed at baseline (e.g. prior history of recurrent depression, medical comorbidity, comorbid anxiety symptoms). the findings indicate that potentially modifiable risk factors influence the long-term prognosis of depression. this suggests that more systematic and effective depression treatment programmes might have an important effect on long-term course and reduce the overall burden of chronic and recurrent depression.

The Peculiarities of Martensite Morphology in Nano- and Inhomogeneous Spaces
Monastyrsky G.E.
Proceedings of the International Conference Nanomaterials : Applications and Properties , 2013,
Abstract: The article describes certain experimental situations, in which the small volumes available for the phase transformation can dramatically affect the morphology, substructure of martensite, martensitic transformation itself. Martensitic structures in standalone nanoparticles as well as that one’s embedded in extrinsic matrix, joint nanograins and multiply connected spaces, gradient structures are given consideration. Much attention is paid to the problem of nucleation and propagation of martensitic phase through peculiar spaces having inhomogeneities and complex 3D connectivity with each other. The conclusion is made about inconsistency of the observed ultimate martensite microstructure in nanosized and inhomogeneous spaces with the current conception of the propagation of martensite-austenite boundary through the available for the transformation volumes as the interface, which sustains the invariant plane strain condition.

Organizational Barriers Limiting Women’s Participation in Women-In-Agriculture (Wia) Programme in Umuahia Agricultural Zone of Abia State, Nigeria

International Journal of Academic Research in Business and Social Sciences , 2012,
Abstract: Development literature is replete with evidence of high level of involvement of women in agricultural production and value addition activities in Nigeria. This paper highlights organizational barriers limiting women’s participation in Women-in-Agriculture (WIA) program, one of the women’s enabling agricultural program in Abia State, Nigeria. Multi-stage random sampling technique was adopted in selecting one hundred and twenty women farmers studied. Simple statistical tools (frequencies and percentages) were used in data analysis. The results show that agency-related and organizational problems accounted for over 80% of the constraints limiting participation in the program. They also differ significantly from client or farmer-related problems. Considering the huge financial investments in the agricultural sector, and the Federal Government’s policy thrust on food security, the paper recommends involvement of all stakeholders who must contribute their quota towards sustainable food security in Nigeria.
