Xylopia aethiopica (XA) (Annonaceae) possesses great nutritional and medicinal values. This study was designed to investigate the effects of XA fruit methanol extract on oxidative stress in brain of rats exposed to whole body gamma-radiation (5 Gy). Vitamin C (VC) served as standard antioxidant. Forty-four rats were divided into 4 groups of 11 rats each.(More)
Ionizing radiation is an important environmental risk factor and, a major therapeutic agent for cancer treatment. This study was designed to evaluate the protective effect of extract of Xylopia aethiopica (XA) on gamma-radiation-induced testicular damage in rats. Vitamin C (VC) served as the reference antioxidant during the study. The study consists of 4(More)
Water-soluble extracts of the bark of aghalokpe, a big tropical tree which grows in the rainforest of Bendel State of Nigeria, showed in vitro antibacterial activity against several of the Enterobacteriaceae. The activity was more pronounced with gram-positive than the gram-negative species. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) which is in the range(More)
A species of Aspergillus was isolated from vomitus and scrapings of the tongue of a patient with a form of respiratory illness. The fungus has since been identified as Aspergillus aculeatus, Iizuka. The fungus grew over a wide range of temperatures, the spores appeared to be thermophilic. Many local foodstuffs supported the growth of the fungus in culture.(More)
The relationship between exposure of pneumococci to antibiotics and appearance of beta hemolysis (rather than the usual alpha hemolysis) was studied in 100 isolates. All strains were capable of producing beta hemolysis. This occurred at the edge of inhibition zones produced by methicillin and other antibiotics, but only if grown anaerobically and(More)
Diabetes mellitus (DM) is characterized by hyperglycemia and endocrine disorder. Diabetes mellitus is knownto promote male infertility by affecting sperm quality through altered steroidogenesis. The role of prostatic fluid in maintenance of sperm quality have been established. However, the effect of DM on prostate health is poorly understood.This study was(More)
The work of the Space Science Centre at the University of Sussex in the development of intelligent space plasma instruments is presented here. Previously the Centre has included various intelligent techniques within space instruments flown on a number of space missions. A neural network was included in the SPREE instruments flown on Shuttle flights STS-46(More)
