RHETORIC AND THE FEMININE CHARACTER: CICERO’S PORTRAYAL OF SASSIA , CLODIA AND FULVIA
S. Ige
Akroterion , 2012, DOI: 10.7445/48-0-98
Abstract: The role of women in the ancient world has been extensively debated and a significant amount of work has been done in this area. Included in the texts that have received attention are Cicero’s speeches which refer to women. All the women who feature in Cicero’s speeches were those who have been acknowledged to have made their presence felt in the Roman public domain. Although Roman society regulated its socio-political activities around masculine values, it is nevertheless difficult to explain why so few women appear in such a voluminous corpus like Cicero’s.1 What is certain is that Ciceronian rhetoric is characterised by the use of invective and vituperation.2 In this article, I shall argue that the women who were negatively portrayed in Cicero’s speeches were victims of an already standardised form of communication within the hegemonic male order that dominated the Roman public domain in first century BC.

Mercury Toxicity on Sodium Pump and Organoseleniums Intervention: A Paradox
Ige Joseph Kade
Journal of Biomedicine and Biotechnology , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/924549
Abstract: Mercury is an environmental poison, and the damage to living system is generally severe. The severity of mercury poisoning is consequent from the fact that it targets the thiol-containing enzymes, irreversibly oxidizing their critical thiol groups, consequently leading to an inactivation of the enzyme.

Evaluating the medical care of child sexual abuse victims in a general hospital in Ibadan, Nigeria
OK Ige, OI Fawole
Ghana Medical Journal , 2012,
Abstract: Objectives: Evaluation of the medical care provided to victims of Child Sexual Abuse (CSA). Design: A retrospective cross sectional study. Setting: The general outpatient clinic of a 150 bed secondary health care facility in Ibadan, Nigeria Participants: Children < 18 years who were treated as Victim’s sexual assault. Main Outcome measure: Investigations and treatment prescribed for CSA victims. Results: The median age of victims was 12 years (range 3-17 years). All were females and 33.3% had attained menarche. Many (68.1%) had torn hymen; of these, 16.3 % also had vaginal lacerations and bleeding. Children>10 years more often had torn hymen (P<0.001). Vaginal swab microscopy was done in 84.0% of those with torn hymen. About 60% of victims had retroviral screening done (all were non reactive) the retroviral screening of the perpetrator was requested in only case. None of the patients received post exposure prophylaxis for HIV. Of those with signs of vaginal penetration who had also attained menarche 12.2% had emergency contraceptives prescribed. Treatment of victims consisted mostly of antibiotics -47.2% and analgesics- 37.5% with only 15.3% of patients proffered any form of counselling. Conclusions: There is a still a huge gap between the health care needs of victims of CSA and the medical services provided for victims of CSA. The use of a treatment protocol and additional training for health care providers in the management of CSA victims is encouraged.
Redressing the growing concern of the education sector in Nigeria
K Kazeem, O Ige
Edo Journal of Counselling , 2010,
Abstract: The status of the Nigerian educational system at the moment is unenviable. It is low in quality and standard, limited in its reach and disturbing in its future. There have been some deliberate attempt/efforts by government to redress the declining fortune of the educational system. Some International donor agencies, like UNICEF, the World Bank, UNESCO, and DFID are also collaborating with government at all levels with a view to coming up with a holistic approach in addressing educational concerns. The intention of this paper is to enhance debates on how to redress past mistakes and unintended failures within the Nigerian education policies, programmes and provisions. The paper is of the view that Nigeria requires a system that will insulate education from unnecessary politicization. Education formulation and policy consideration should be for the good of all. The paper is also of the view that there is need for a holistic reorientation, re-engineering and re-branding of education, especially teacher training and recruitments, if effective quality of education is to be achieved in Nigeria. Government should also ensure that all reports, pronouncements and positions canvassed by educational accreditation, visitations and probe panels are implemented. Key Words: Education, Minimum academic standard; Politicization of education; Quality, Teacher recruitment.
Supplementation of micronutrients in community micronutrient deficiency prevention programmes
MD Dairo, OK Ige
Annals of Ibadan Postgraduate Medicine , 2009,
Abstract: Micronutrient deficiency affects about 2 billion people all over the world. The major micronutrient deficiencies which are of public health importance include vitamin A, iron and iodine deficiencies. The deficiencies of these micronutrients cause a variety of morbidities and increased mortality which are most severe in children, adolescent girls and pregnant women. Despite the magnitude of these deficiencies, research has shown that they are correctable using simple strategies. This review examines the strategies employed to reduce micronutrient deficiencies worldwide by reviewing bibliographic databases, monograms and journals up to the year 2007. These strategies include food based and micronutrient supplementation. Although micronutrient supplementation is widely embraced as a strategy to combat micronutrient deficiencies, they are most suitable when used as a measure to combat severe deficiencies. Food based strategies such as food fortification and dietary diversification are more effective than micronutrient supplementation which should only be used as a short term measure. Supplementation programmes should be evidence based, multi-nutrient in approach and backed up with other complementary public health interventions.
Respiratory symptoms and ventilatory function of the Bakery worker in Ibadan, Nigeria
OM Ige, B Awoyemi
West African Journal of Medicine , 2002,
Abstract: A total of five hundred Bakery workers were studied to assess occupational induced lung impairment as a result of exposure to grain and flour dust. Occupational related symptoms were recorded using structured questionnaire. Age and sex matched controls consisting of 500 University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan workers and students were used. They were apparently healthy and work and live at places free of fumes and smoke. Peak expiratory flow rate (PEFR) was measured in all subjects. However, full spirometry work up was done on 100 bakery workers and 100 control subjects that had been selected using simple random sampling technique. The most frequent pulmonary symptoms among the bakery workers were sneezing and running nose (53.30%) and periodic breathlessness/chest tightness (23.16%) while the symptom of cough/phlegm present in (21.53%) of the subjects. The mean PEFR of the bakery workers (463.20 + 51.39 L/min) was significantly lower (P<0.0001) than that of the control subjects (538.0 + 47.23 L/min). Similarly, the mean values of FEV1, FVC and FEV1% were also significantly lower than the control subjects. The findings indicate that respiratory symptoms are common during the working hours among the bakery workers and 23.16% of the subjects studied suffered some degree of airway obstruction.
The clinical efficacy of Fluticasone Propionate (Fluvent) compared with Beclomethasone Dipropionates (Becotide) in patients with mild to moderate brochial asthma at the University College Hospital, Ibadan, Nigeria.

Abstract: This open, randomized trial was conducted at the Medical Out patient Department of University College Hospital, Nigeria to compare the clinical efficacy of Beclomethasome dipropionate (Becotide) with Fluticasone propionate (Fluvent) in patients with mild to moderate bronchial asthma. The study was performed as a week screening, 8 - weeks open comparative clinical trial involving Fluticasone propionate (Fluvent) at a daily dose of 220mg and Beclomethasone Dipropionate (Becotide) at a dose of 400mg daily delivered through pressurized metered-dose inhaler (pMDI). The main objective of this study is to assess the efficacy of Fluvent in patients with mild to moderate asthma compared to Becotide. At the second visit (end of 1 week), 10 patients were given either Becotide of Fluvent but all were maintained on as needed beta2agonist (Salbutamol inhaler) therapy throughout the study. Efficacy was assessed by changes in symptoms, number of times beta2-agonist was used and results of pulmonary function tests (PEFR and FEV1) while safety was assessed by adverse event experiences. The baseline characteristics of the patients randomized into the two drug groups were comparable and of no statistical significance. The changes in the pulmonary function tests as well as the reduction in the asthma symptoms suggest a statistically significant improvement in the asthma status of the patients. However, these changes were more rapid among the patients using Fluvent. Also, there was higher percentage decline in the episodes of asthma symptoms either in the morning, day or night in the Fluvent group than Becotide group. The drugs were well tolerated and no adverse event was noticed on any of the patients. We therefore concluded that Fluvent would be more efficacious than Becotide in the treatment of Asthma.
