Preliminary Study on the Use of Urea Activated Melon (Citrullus Colocynthis) Husk in the Adsorption of Cadmium From Waste Waterr

Preliminary Study on the Use of Urea Activated Melon (Citrullus Colocynthis) Husk in the Adsorption of Cadmium From Waste Waterr

Adsorption studies were carried out using urea activated melon (Citrullus colocynthis) husks as a low-cost potential adsorbent to remove cadmium from industrial effluents. Bioabsorption parameters considered were as contact time, adsorbent dosage and adsorbate concentration. Cadmium removal was found to be dependent on the three parameters with maximum removal attained at 50 minutes with 0.8 and 1.0g of urea activated melon husk. Cadmium ions were mostly removed at low adsorbate concentration.

Investigations on the Effects of Artichoke (Cynara Cardunculus Var. Scolymus) Extract on 35 – 42 Days Blood Lipid Parameters of Broiler Chickens

Investigations on the Effects of Artichoke (Cynara Cardunculus Var. Scolymus) Extract on 35 – 42 Days Blood Lipid Parameters of Broiler Chickens

Pharmacological plants are developed as additive in animal feeds. These plants are very important for the improvement of the global poultry industry. This experiment studied the effects of artichoke extract on concentrations of triglyceride, cholesterol, very low lipoprotein (VLDL), high density lipoprotein (HDL) in broiler chickens at 35 and 42 days. The experimental designed was a randomized complete block design (RCBD) with 5 treatments (0, 100, 200,300 and 500 mg of artichoke extract per liter of water) and 4 replications.

Antioxidant Activity of Carica Papaya Juice in Diabetic Rats Ogugua, Victor Nwadiogbu1, Anaduaka, Emeka Godwin1, Tufon, Emmanuel2, Amachukwu, Ogechukwu Chinwe1

Antioxidant Activity of Carica Papaya Juice in Diabetic Rats Ogugua, Victor Nwadiogbu1, Anaduaka, Emeka Godwin1, Tufon, Emmanuel2, Amachukwu, Ogechukwu Chinwe1

Diabetes the Killer disease known worldwide has been implicated to generate oxidative stress and Carica papaya has been suggested to manage this effect. This study was therefore aimed at evaluating the antioxidant activity of C. papaya juice in diabetic rats with a view of proposing a management scheme.

Induction of Triploidy and Erythrocyte Cell Size Analysis of Triploid African Catfish, Clarias Gariepinus (Burchell, 1822)

Induction of Triploidy and Erythrocyte Cell Size Analysis of Triploid African Catfish, Clarias Gariepinus (Burchell, 1822)

In this study, genetic manipulation technique was employed to produce triploid African catfish Clarias gariepinus. Artificial fertilization was carried out using synthetic hormone (Ovaprim®) at 0.5 ml/kg body weight. Eggs numbering 100 ± 10 in quadruplicates from C. gariepinus were fertilized by milt from the male species.

Effect of Ethanolic Extract of Rosa Canina on Some Serum Biochemical Parameters of Diabetic Male Rats

Effect of Ethanolic Extract of Rosa Canina on Some Serum Biochemical Parameters of Diabetic Male Rats

The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect ethanolic extract of Rosa canina on some serum biochemical factors of diabetic male rats. Thirty two (32) male Wistar rats weighting 200 – 250 grams in 4 groups (control, diabetic control, diabetics + 250mg/kg/day extract, diabetics + 500 mg/kg/day extract) were used. Diabetes was induced by STZ (60mg/kg) intraperitoneal injection.
