PROTECTIVE EFFECT OF MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS ON METHOTREXATE-INDUCED ACUTE TOXICITY ON LIVER OF ADULT ALBINO RATS
Our study aims at studying acute toxic effects of Methotrexate (MTX) on the liver of adult male albino rats and assessing the protective effect of Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) on the MTX-induced hepatotoxicity. Twenty-four adult male albino rats were divided into four groups, each of six. Rats in group I served as a negative control. Rats in group II received a single intraperitoneal injection of MTX at a dose of 10 mg/kg. Rats in groups III received MSCs therapy at a single intraperitoneal dose of 1x106 cells per rat. Rats in group IV received MSCs therapy at a single intraperitoneal dose of 2x106 cells per rat. Groups III and IV received MTX injection, same dose as group II.Author : Angie M.

EXTRADITION AND HUMAN RIGHTS IN SOMALIA
Extradition is the only legal way for a country to surrender any wanted person to another country for the latter to put them on trial or execute punishment imposed on him/her. Avoiding the application of extradition procedures is contrary to human rights standards as it deprives the person of his/her rights under extradition law. The wanted person’s rights in extradition proceedings are, in any case, more efficient and useful than the rights in any deportation or expulsion procedure. The compliance with the rights of persons wanted for extradition necessitates priority of extradition procedures over other procedures. These other procedures shall give way to extradition.Author : Anton Girginov
THERAPEUTIC TRIALS ON BOVINE DERMATOPHILOSIS INVOLVING TOPICAL APPLICATION OF MAHOGANY SEED OIL EXTRACT
Therapeutic trials involving topical treatment of bovine dermatophilosis using natural Mahogany seed oil on twelve naturally infected zebu cattle of various ages and sexes. The oil was delivered with a paint-brush, which was vigorously rubbed on the affected surface areas. The treatment was repeated every two days for four weeks. Two of the cattle served as negative control, while treatment was applied on the remaining ten. After four weeks of treatment the animals were observed for the disappearance of lesions.Author : Omeje Jude Nduka, Akinbobola Jones, AduaMango and Orji Uchenna
MARKETING AGRICULTURAL PRODUCE IN NIGERIA: PUBLIC SECTOR MARKETING BOARDS OR PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS?
Recently, there have been clamour for the re-introduction of agricultural marketing boards in Nigeria. This nostalgic desire for the re-establishment of marketing boards is largely premised on the notion of the “good old days” when marketing boards supposedly catalysed the growth of the agriculture sector in Nigeria. They were reputed to have provided farmers with relevant information, resources, capacity building and quality control that allowed the farmers thrive and the agriculture sector grow.Author : George Nwangwu, Ph.D.
EXTRACTION OF LIPASE FROM GERMINATED PEANUT SEEDS (ARACHIS HYPOGAEA LINN) AND STUDY OF ITS ACTIVITY ON COCONUT OIL (COCOS NUCIFERA LINN)
Virgin Coconut Oil is the riches source of MCFA (90 %). Therefore, the main aim of this work is to prepare MCFAs from Virgin Coconut Oil and to assess its antimicrobial properties. Medium-chain fatty acids are produced by enzymes in which the specificity of the thioesterase component differs from normal, i.e. the chain-elongation cycle is terminated prematurely. Isolate the lipase enzyme (EC22.214.171.124) from radicals of peanuts seeds and to determine the enzymic properties of the purified enzyme.Author : Dr. Mi Mi Yee
