Extraction of Total Phenolic and Flavonoids from Edible Wild and CultivatedMedicinal Mushrooms as Affected by Different Solvents
Extending the knowledge on secondary metabolites and the effect of solvent of extraction in mushrooms, We investigated five mushrooms species; two cultivated edible (Agaricus bisporus (brown) andExpand
Assessment of fluoride content in tropical surface soils used for crop cultivation
Bongo district of the Upper East Region of Ghana relies on groundwater as the main source of potable water supply for domestic purposes. However, available literature indicated that groundwater inExpand
Bioactive and nutritive compounds in Sorghum bicolor (Guinea corn) red leaves and their health implication.
The nutritional implication of these findings is that the consumption of diets prepared with the leaves provides natural antioxidant and essential fatty acids that could fight cardiovascular related diseases. Expand
Determination of Chlorophylls, Carotenoids, and Fatty Acid Profiles of Tetrapleura Tetraptera Seeds and their Health Implication
Tetrapleura tetraptera (Prekesse) fruits have been used in ethonomedicine for treatment of diseases and as spices in food preparation. For instance, it is used for soup preparation for a local foodExpand
Knockdown of phosphoethanolamine transmethylation enzymes decreases viability of Haemonchus contortus.
Success in adaptation of use of PPMO antisense approach in H. contortus provides an important reverse genetic technological advance for studying this parasitic nematode of veterinary significance. Expand
In vitro activity of Sorghum bicolor extracts, 3-deoxyanthocyanidins, against Toxoplasma gondii.
These findings indicate that S. bicolor red-leaf 3-deoxyanthocyanidins-rich extracts have potent in vitro inhibitory activity against the proliferative stage of T. gondii parasites. Expand
In vitro activity of the interaction between taxifolin (dihydroquercetin) and pyrimethamine against Toxoplasma gondii
The IC50p ranges obtained for the individual and the combination of taxifolin with pyrimethamine inhibition of parasite growth were not cytotoxic to the infected HFF and Hek‐293 cell lines used, and these compounds combination should be investigated further using in vivo model of toxoplasmosis.

Racial Disparities and Preventive Measures to Renal Cell Carcinoma
It is found that the incidence and mortality rates of RCC are strongly associated with four main risk factors, including family history (genetics), lifestyle (poor diet, cigarette smoking, excess alcohol drinking), environment (community where people live), and occupation (place where people work). Expand
In vitro antagonistic and indifferent activity of combination of 3-deoxyanthocyanidins against Toxoplasma gondii
Both individual and combination 3-DA compounds not only depicted very strong inhibitory activity against T. gondii, but also had synergistic and additive cytotoxic effects against HFF cells, suggesting these synthetic 3-DAs have potential as antiparasitic agents for the treatment of human toxoplasmosis.

Fatty Acid Profiling in Selected Cultivated Edible and Wild MedicinalMushrooms in Southern United States
The fatty acid composition was determined in the cultivated edible mushroom Agaricus bisporus (white), and the wild medicinal mushrooms, Turkey-tail (Trametes versicolor), Artist Conk (GanodermaExpand
