1.0    INTRODUCTION AND LITERATURE REVIEWEar wax is normally produced in the ear canal. It is made up of the secretions of specialized sets of glands located in the ear canal. Sebaceous glands secrete sebum. Sebum is mostly a combination of fatty acids. Modified apocrine sweat glands release a secretion that combines with the sebum to form cerumen. This cerumen also picks up discarded cells and hair follicles. It may contain dust or other debris that finds its way into the ear canal...

Isolation and screening of fungi from the rhizosphere of moringa oleifera for amylase and protease production

ABSTRACTThe present study is to isolate fungi from rhizosphere of Moringa oleifera and screen them for the production of some very important enzymes such as amylase and protease. Twenty fungi were isolated from the soil sample from five different farms using pour plate method. The isolates were then identified based on their colonial morphology and microscopic features in wet mount and Lactophenol Cotton Blue staining. All the isolates were screened for amylase and protease production by star...

ABSTRACTAntimicrobial activity of ethanolic extract of Mangifera indica peel wastested on some pathogenic organisms. The extract was tested for activityagainst, Baciollus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonelatyphii, Pseudomonas notatum and Aspergillus fumigates. The extract exhibitedactivity against the organisms in varying degrees. In agar diffusion test,Escherichia coli showed the highest zone of inhibition (8mm) at theconcentration of the extract test (1g/3ml) while ...

CHAPTER ONE 1.1 INTRODUCTION Plants have provided a source of inspiration for novel drug compounds, as plant derived medicines have made large contributions to human health and wellbeing. Plant extracts have been used for a wide variety of purposes for many thousands of years (Jones, 1996). The antimicrobial activity of plant oils and extracts has formed the basis of many applications, including raw and processed food preservatives, pharmaceuticals, alternative medicine an...

ABSTRACTA study was undertaken to determine typical concentration of airborne bacteria and fungi (microflora) in Enugu State University of Science and Technology (ESUT) in the tropical rainforest environment of Nigeria. Aerial sampling was conducted at  various faculties and  departments each day. The air samples were collected  thrice daily. Concentrations of airborne microflora exceeded  available local guidelines  for classroom,  lobby, library and offices, bu...

ABSTRACT The bacteriological quality of snacks and beverages locally produced in RUGIPO were investigated using Standard Microbiological methods. The total bacterial density ranged between 36-49x103cfu/ml, the total coliform count ranged between 5-12x103 and the total yeast/mould count ranged between 6-23x103. A total of nine bacterial genera; E. Coli, Bacillu sp., Enterococcus sp., Enterobacter sp., Klebsilla ...

Antibacterial activity of three select type of medicated soap on Staphylococcus aureus

ABSTRACTThe antibacterial activity of three types of medicated soap on Staphylococcus aureus isolated from wound infections was conducted. Fourteen individuals with wound infections were sampled. Swab sticks were used to collect specimens from wound infections; each swab stick was streaked separately over plates of nutrient and mannitol agar and subsequently incubated at 370c. Out of the fourteen (14) individuals sampled, 5(36%) were  infected with Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeru...

Comparative study on antimicrobial activity of medicated soaps and plant extracts used to make soaps

AbstractSoaps and other cleansing agents have been around for quite a long time, a medical document from about 1500 B.C. shows that Egyptians combined animal and vegetable oils with alkaline salts to form a soap-like material used for treating skin diseases, as well as for washing and  Scrubbing body or hands. The objective of this study is to evaluate the potency and the antibacterial activity of medicated soap and Natural plant extracts used to make soaps against some selected common h...

Bacteriological Quality Of Some Selected Bagged Milk Sold In Markets Within Kano Metropololis

ABSTRACTMilk has been known to be highly nutritive ad thus a good medium for bacteria growth and vehicles for transmission of food borne infection. A total of 16 samples of different brands of bagged milk obtained from some selected markets within Kaduna metropolis were analyzed for the occurrence of bacteria using pour plate method on selective media. The total aerobic count ranged from 4.0 x 103 to 2.8 x 106. The result obtained showed that bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus) in bagged milk ar...

Comparative Studies on The Bacteria Associated With Hands of School Pupils’ in Kaduna South Local Government

ABSTRACTThis study reviewed the importance of hand washing and health benefits derived from the practice and also highlighted the consequences of not observing strict hand washing practice. Swabs from primary school pupils showed cfu mean total viable count of 1.60 x 104, 1.50 x 104, 1.60 x 104 and 1.7 x 104 across the four schools. Salmonella spp., Staphylococcus spp. and E. coli were the most sensitive microbes to the antibiotics used while Ciprofloxacin and Gentamicin were active across th...

Microbiological load of land snail sold in Ekpoma market

ABSTRACTThe results obtained from this research work shows that land snails sold in Ekpoma market contains some pathogenic microorganisms. A total of fifty samples were bought from 10 different local sellers (five snail samples each) in Ekpoma old market and the new market. The total viable count of bacteria ranged from 2.2 x 108 cfu/g - 8.2 x 108 cfu/g. The lowest was recorded in sample I  having a total bacteria count of 2.2 x 108 cfu/g and the highest count was observed in sample D ob...
