Kalanchoe crenata is a vegetable widely used in Cameroon and largely efficient in the treatment of diabetes mellitus. The effect of the water–ethanol extract of this plant (WEKC) on blood glucose levels was investigated in fasting normal and diet-induced diabetic rats (MACAPOS 1) after a short- and medium-term treatment. Diabetes was induced by submitting(More)
The presence of homologous point mutations in the dhfr gene in Plasmodium vivax and Plasmodium falciparum is associated with resistance to antifolate drugs. The spread of antifolate resistance encouraged research for novel antifolate drugs active against both wild-type and dhfr-mutant strains of malaria parasites. Because P. vivax cannot be easily(More)
It has been hypothesised that glucose intolerance or diabetes can be induced in rodents by a hypercaloric-fat diet or a hypercaloric-sucrose diet. This study was designed to examine the effects of a high-fat diet (HFD: carbohydrates 35-40% kcal, fat 50-55% kcal, protein 10-15% kcal) and a high-sucrose diet (HSD: carbohydrates 65-70% kcal, fat 25-30% kcal,(More)
The WHO program to combat iodine deficiency disorders (IDD) adopted in 1992 required countries producing cooking and table salt to add 50-100 ppm of iodine to salt. This program was adopted in Cameroon, but problems remain in ensuring adequate conditioning of the iodized salt at the factories to maintain the iodine levels so that consumers take in the(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Prolonged exposure to highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) is associated with adverse effects such as hyperlactatemia. We determined the prevalence and risk factors for developing hyperlactatemia among human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected cameroonians on antiretroviral therapy (ART). METHODS We conducted a cross-sectional(More)
