Eleven plasma biochemical parameters were estimated in a total of 28 children with protein-energy malnutrition (PEM): 7 children each category of marasmus, kwashiorkor, marasmic-kwashiorkor and undernutrition with ages between 8 and 48 months. The estimations were performed on admission and 8 to 24 days after treatment at the Obafemi Awolowo University(More)
Husbands in 100 consecutive couples complaining of lack of pregnancy after one year of normal intercourse were engaged in this study. Information from a structured questionnaire administered to these 100 men showed that 46% had primary infertility (had never impregnated any woman) and 54% secondary infertility (had in the past impregnated at least one woman(More)
Haematological parameters, total serum iron, and total iron binding capacity (TIBC) concentrations were estimated in twenty protein energy malnourished (PEM) children, five kwashiorkor (K), five marasmus (M), five marasmic-kwashiorkor (M-K), and five undernourished (U) aged between one and five years on admission and after 18 days hospitalisation at Obafemi(More)
Radioiodinated-SCH 23982 is a potential agent for the imaging of dopamine D-1 receptors in the human brain. In vivo binding of [125I]SCH 23982 to D-1 receptors in rat brain was determined over 4 hr. The ratio of activity in striatum and frontal cortex to that in cerebellum increased over the first 2 hr to maximum values of 4.4:1 and 2.1:1, respectively. The(More)
Serum copper, magnesium, zinc, calcium and ionized calcium (Ca++) concentrations were compared in 6 rabbits infected with Trypanosoma brucei brucei and 5 uninfected rabbits. There was a significant depletion of Mg and Zn and a significant increase in Cu from about day 10 of infection to the end. There was no change in plasma total calcium or free diffusible(More)
BACKGROUND The incidence of difficulty with intubation in the general population depends upon the definition used but results as high as 37% have been published. Endocrine disorders such as diabetes and hyperthyroidism have been linked to an increased incidence of difficult intubation via laryngoscopy. Hypercalcemia with resulting calcification has been(More)
Biologic distribution data in the rat were obtained for the alpha-1 adrenoceptor imaging agent (+/-) 2-[beta-(iodo-4-hydroxyphenyl)ethylaminomethyl]tetralone (HEAT) labeled with [125I]. The major excretory routes were through the liver (67%) and the kidney (33%). Internal radiation absorbed dose estimates to nine source organs, total body, the GI tract,(More)
