Peripheral serum progesterone profile in multiparous Nigerian Red Sokoto goats between day one and 30 postpartum
Peripheral serum progesterone (P 4 ) profile as an index of postpartum (pp) resumption of ovarian activity was determined in fifteen (15) multiparous Red Sokoto goats between day 1 and 30 pp. Serum P… Expand
Hematological changes induced by subchronic co-administration of chlorpyrifos and lead in Wistar rats: Alleviating effect of vitamin C
Lead and chlorpyrifos (CPF) are among the most pervasive environmental contaminants that adversely affect human and animal health. Oxidative stress is a common molecular mechanism implicated in lead… Expand
