Phytochemical Screening And Invivo Antiplasmodial Activity Of Methanol Extract Of Baobab Leaves (Adansonia Digitata)

ABSTRACTTwenty-two healthy albino mice were grouped into A, B, C, D, and E. Group A had six mice while groups B – E had four mice each. The mice were infected with Plasmodium berghei and the methanol extract of the leaves of Adansonia digitata was obtained by maceration extraction method. Phytochemical screening of the plant extract revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, carbohydrates and cardiac glycosides. The infected mice Group C, D and E were orally treated with the ...

Effect of Different Organic and Inorganic Nitrogen Sources on the Kinetics of the Breakdown of Crude Oil Using Pseudomonas

ABSTRACTThe option of using microbes in the remediation of polluted sited have received wide acceptance due to its sustainability and environmental friendliness. This study is aimed at using the kinetic parameters (Vmax and Km) to assess the effect of organic and inorganic nitrogen sources on the performance of Pseudomonas sp., during the remediation of crude oil polluted sites. The rate of crude oil breakdown was assessed by determining the total petroleum hydrocarbon in the soil (after cont...

Comparative Assessment Of Phytochemical Content And Antioxidant Potential Of Gongronema Latifolium (Utazi) And Ocimum Gratissimum (Scent Leaf) Leaves And Stem

ABSTRACT Vegetables are the edible parts of plant that are consumed wholly or in parts, raw or cooked as part of main dish or salad. A vegetable includes leaves, stems, roots, flowers, seed, fruits, bulbs, tubers and fungi (Uzo, 1999). Vegetables are good sources of oil, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins depending on the vegetable consumed (Ihekoronye & Ngoddy, 2000). (Ononugbu, 2002) reported that vegetable fats and oil lower blood lipids thereby reducing the occurrence of disease a...

Effects Of Crude And Citrullus Lanatus Seed Oil On Some Heamatological Indices (Pcv, Wbc, Rbc And Platelets) Of Wistar Albino Rats

ABSTRACTThis study investigated the possible effects of n- hexane extract of crude and degummed Citrullus lanatus seed oil on RBC, WBC, PCV, and Platelet level on wistar albino rats. The result, showed no significant increase in PCV, RBC, WBC and Platelet levels in rats fed with crude and degummed Citrullus lanatus seed oil as well as the control.The study showed that rats fed with the crude Citrullus lanatus seed oil had a non significant increase when compared with the degummed Citrullus la...

Evaluation of the Immunomodulatory Effect of Oral Administration of Methanol Extract of Gongronema Latifolium (Utazi) In Wistar Albino Rats.

ABSTRACTCHAPTER ONE1.0 INTRODUCTIONWe are constantly being exposed to infectious agents and yet, in most cases, we are able to resist these infections. It is our immune system that enables us to resist infections.  The immune system can be defined as a network of lymphoid organs, tissues and cells and also the products of these cells. The main function of immune system is to protect the body against infectious microbes or foreign substances (Abbas and Lichtman, 2005). Each structure o...

ANTILIPIDEMIC EFFECT OF WATER (H20) EXTRACT OF DESMODIUM VELUTINUM LEAVES ON ALBINO WISTAR RATS.

ABSTRACTThis study evaluated the antilipidemic activity of water extracts from leaves of Desmodium velutinum on albino wistar rats. The phytochemical analysis of the leaf extract showed the presence of tannins, saponins, alkaloids, soluble carbohydrates, flavonoids, reducing sugar, steroids, cyanide and terpenoids. The animals were treated with known drugs (atorvastatin 2ml). There were significantly reductions in HDL 13.00 1.41 mg/dl LDL 1.20 0.14 mg/dl and triglyceride 39.00  0.14 mg/d...

ABSTRACTThis research investigated how the sweetness of sugar substitute compares to the sweetness of sugar. In this research different percentage solution of sugar, artificial sweetener and natural sweetener (10%, 1%, 0.1% and 0.01%) were prepared. Ten volunteers were gathered for the sensory evaluation in this case tasting of the solution, the volunteer‟s taste threshold of data was gotten. The artificial sweetener was found out to be the sweetest among the substances experimented and at ...
