Microbial contamination of herbal preparations in Lagos, Nigeria.
TLDR
This study investigated the bacterial and fungal quality of herbal concoctions prepared locally for the treatment of malaria, fistula, convulsions, and skin rashes in Nigeria.
Characterization And Pathogenicity Of Vibrio Spp. Contaminating Seafoods In Lagos, Nigeria.
Twenty-five seafood samples (shrimps, crabs and cuttle fish) collected from seven Fishing Companies and some local fishermen in Lagos, Nigeria, were examined for the presence of Vibrio species. A
Effect of some herbicides used in Nigeria on Rhizobium phaseoli, Azotobacter vinelandii and Bacillus subtilis.
TLDR
The results revealed that 2, 4-Damine was the most toxic of the three herbicides studied and Azotobacter vinelandii was found to be most sensitive to the herbicides.
Antimicrobial activity of extracts of local cough mixtures on upper respiratory tract bacterial pathogens.
TLDR
Screening for the antimicrobial activity of six common ingredients used locally in cough mixtures showed that lime, garlic onion, onion and honey were active against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus faecalis, Candida albicans, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp and Shigella dysenteriae.
Clinical and Socio- Demographic Risk Factors for Acquisition of Helicobacter pylori Infection in Nigeria
TLDR
Overcrowding, having siblings/parents with history of ulcer/gastritis as well as prior antibiotic usage had a significant association with H. pylori.
Isolation and characterisation of antibiotic producing microorganisms in composted Nigerian soil.
TLDR
The fungus Penicillium chrysogenum had the highest rate of antibiotic production with an inhibitory zone width of 17mm while Trichoderma viridae produced toxins lytic to other fungal hyphae.
Non-plasmid mediated multi-drug resistance in Vibrio and Aeromanas spp . isolated from seafoods in Lagos
TLDR
The results of this study show that antibiotic resistance in Vibrio and Aeromonas species in this environment is not plasmid mediated, and the prevalence level of A. hydophila varied from 17.62% in prawns to 33.58% in fishes.
Prevalence of Helicobacter pylori infection among dyspeptic patients with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus in Nigeria.
TLDR
It was showed that, in Nigeria, there is no difference in prevalence of H. pylori in dyspeptic patients with and without type 2 diabetes mellitus, without significant difference between diabetics and nondiabetics.
Helicobacter pylori strains from a Nigerian cohort show divergent antibiotic resistance rates and a uniform pathogenicity profile
TLDR
An average gastric pathology was observed by histological grading and bacterial isolates showed a uniform pathogenicity profile while indicating divergent antibiotic resistance rates, indicating surprisingly low infection rate of H. pylori infection within the cohort in the present study.
