Two cases of advanced carcinoma of gallbladder were treated by combination chemotherapy consisting of 5-FU, leucovorin and continuous administration of etoposide. One of the cases was a male 61 years old and another was a female 64 years old, both of whom were diagnosed as inoperable cases by imaging studies. When combination chemotherapy consisting of 5-FU(More)
The study evaluated effects of drought on some agro-morphological traits of 60 rice genotypes comprising 54 introgression lines with their parents, IR 64 (Oryza sativa) and TOG 5681 (Oryza glaberrima) and four NERICA-L varieties developed from the same parents for comparison. The genotypes were subjected either to full irrigation from sowing to maturity(More)
Aluminum is a major phytotoxic mineral in the soil at low pH conditions. The effect of aluminum (Al) on root length, flowering time, dry matter production, and grain yield was examined using two tolerant, Pungsan (PS) and Geumgang (GG), and one susceptible, IR36, rice varieties to acid soil. Rice seedlings were subjected to two Al treatments (+Al, 150 μM of(More)
(eds M.C.S. Wopereis et al.) 69 within countries. For example, surveys in Benin showed large differences between consumer preferences in urban and rural areas (see Futakuchi et al., Chapter 25, this volume). The challenge to develop new rice varieties for such diversity is huge and compounded by the fact that training and recruitment of rice breeders has(More)
We evaluated Al-tolerance in 44 interspecific lines (32 upland and 12 lowland) developed from the crosses of Oryza sativa and O. glaberrima called New Rice for Africa (NERICA) with 2 O. glaberrima lines and 13 O. sativa varieties under hydroponic culture containing 0.15, 0.3, 0.6, and 1.2 mM Al (+Al) and 0 mM Al (−Al as a control). Ten upland and four(More)
Twenty-six upland lines of New Rice for Africa (NERICA) were tested with four Oryza sativa varieties in relation to Fe toxicity tolerance under hydroponic culture containing 1.44 mM Fe (+Fe) and 0 mM Fe (-Fe as a control). Three NERICAs, WAB450-IBP-24-HB (P24), WAB450-IBP-82-1-1 (P82), and WAB450-IBP-163-3-1 (P163) among the 30 lines/varieties tested(More)
