A study was conducted to develop an in vitro culture system for growing sheep oocytes from isolated primordial follicles. Enzymatically isolated neonatal sheep primordial follicles were cultured in Waymouth MB752/1 medium containing BSA (3 mg/ml) + ITS (1%, v/v) over 28 days. In Experiment 1, primordial follicles (average diameter 40.2+/-0.60 microm) were(More)
This study investigated the effect of FSH alone and rGH priming followed by FSH treatment on follicle populations, follicular fluid concentrations of components of the IGF system and steroids, and the ovulation rate in sheep. Estrus was synchronized with progestagen sponges. Ewes (n = 10/group) in Group 1 served as untreated controls, while those in Groups(More)
Achieving full in vitro growth of oocytes of both domestic animals and humans remains a major challenge. The objective of this study was to examine the in vitro development of primary follicles isolated enzymatically from cryopreserved sheep ovarian tissue. In Experiment 1, isolated primary follicles (mean diameter 60.1+/-0.78microm) were cultured in(More)

The prevalence of gastro-intestinal parasites in school children in relation to availability of sanitary facilities was investigated. Stool samples from 580 pupils from nine schools in Makurdi were examined for intestinal parasites. Sanitary facil ties available within the schools were also noted. The overall prevalence rate of parasitic infection was 54(More)
This study investigated the effect of recombinant bovine GH (rGH) on follicle development and LH secretion patterns in ewes. In Experiment 1, 20 ewes (n=10/group) synchronized with progestagen sponges on Day 0 received either a 7 d period of rGH treatment starting on Day 4, or acted as controls. On Day 11, all ewes were unilaterally ovariectomized.(More)
