BACKGROUND Lifestyle, genetics and environmental factors are established determinants of bone density. We aimed to describe the bone characteristics of competitive top-ranked Nigerian male athletes using calcaneal ultrasound and to assess whether intensive training promotes higher bone density in an environment with reportedly low calcium intake; to compare(More)
AIM The mean daily calcium intake of adult Nigerians is reportedly low, and animal studies have shown that exercise-induced changes in the bones of growing mice are gender specific. We therefore sought to describe calcaneal broadband ultrasound attenuation (BUA), speed of sound (SOS), stiffness index (SI) and SI-based T-scores in a cohort of Nigerian female(More)
HIV testing during labour and delivery provides a critical opportunity for administering appropriate interventions to prevent mother-to-child-transmission (PMTCT). We studied current HIV rates and infection trend among women tested during delivery following scale-up of PMTCT and antiretroviral therapy (ART) programs in Jos, north central Nigeria. Between(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical Chorioamnionitis contributes to maternal and neonatal morbidity and mortality but the effect of histological chorioamnionitis is sparse in our environment. AIM To determine the maternal and neonatal outcomes of histological chorioamnionitis amongst pregnant women and their babies. DESIGN OF THE STUDY Cross sectional longitudinal(More)
CONTEXT Osteoporosis is characterized by decreased bone density and increased bone fragility. Genetics, diet, and physical activity are established determinants of bone density. The seminomadic Fulani of northern Nigeria trek long distances on foot daily to graze and water their animals, and have access to calcium-rich dairy products. OBJECTIVE We sought(More)
