Pulmonary tuberculosis is a global problem requiring 6- month MDT-DOTS continuous treatment. This time based treatment along with the combination of VCO nutritional supplement and/or Catfish-extracted albumin has shown a significant benefit on improving immune response, accelerating the conversion of BTA sputum, increasing nutritional states and improving chest X-ray imaging in people with active pulmonary TB. This study aimed to compare the changes in pulmonary TB patients treated MDT-DOTS combined with supplemented VCO and/or albumin with that in the MDT-DOTS placebo group
This research work was carried out to investigate the proximate and mineral composition of some traditional vegetables in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. These vegetables include: Talinum triangulare, Hensia crinita, Cucurbita maxima and Lasianthera africana. The vegetables were washed in potable water to remove unwanted matters and were analyzed for proximate and mineral content. All analyses were carried out in three replicates and the mean data were presented on tables using the spread sheet Microsoft Excel. Talinum triangulare had the highest protein content (56.72%) and moisture content (80.11%) but had the lowest content of ash (6.31%), crude fibre (2.96%) and carbohydrate (6.91%). Ash and crude fibre were present in low quantities in Talinum triangulare, Hensia crinita, and Lasianthera africana, except Cucurbita maxima which had the highest composition of ash (14.06%) and crude fibre (9.37%). Mineral composition (Potassium (K), Calcium (Ca), Magnesium (Mg) and
Rewarding your body with protein after a vigorous workout at fitness center in Colorado is inevitable. Lack of time makes the people rush towards protein bars. Read to find the list of best protein bars to energize your body.
Healthy poultry requires sufficient quantity of proteins and carbohydrates along with the necessary vitamins and dietary minerals. These nutrients are added as feed additives. Poultry feed ingredients mainly comprise carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Carbohydrates are the major source of energy and constitute the largest component of poultry diets, followed by plant proteins and animal protein sources.
Soybean (Glycine max) is an important vegetable oilseed crop. It is considered to be a cash crop. It is a major source of edible vegetable oils and proteins which contains about 40% protein and 20% oil. The genetic diversity was estimated among 7 varieties of Soybean using 22 RAPD primers. The RAPD marker is useful tool for assessing genetic variation and resolving cultivars identities. Among the 22 primers, 11 primers showed polymorphism.
This work is on Proximate analysis, characterization and utilization of bambara nut oil (Mmanu –Okpa). Bambara groundnut was collected from a local market and analysised. The bambara groundnut has many content, such as carbohydrate, protein ash, water, and oil.
Poultry production is a growing business sector worldwide, owing partly to its profitability and partly to being a ready and affordable source of protein requirement for man. A major problem facing poultry is disease, a state of ill health that could lead to death or poor level of performance of the affected poultry. The scope of this paper, therefore, covers the control and management of disease outbreak in poultry, focusing on the tentative diagnosis of an implicated disease through software application. The software developed, called Pathfinder, using Java programming language and MySQL, provides users, e.g. veterinarians and animal health technologists, an easier, quicker and more precise procedure for tentative diagnosis of poultry diseases.
The leaves of Ceiba pentandra (Java), Manihot esculentus (Cassava) and Abelmoschus esculentus (Okra) are consumed as vegetables in Southwestern Nigeria. The proximate and phytochemical composition of these leaves were investigated using standard procedures. Powdered dried leaves of Java, Cassava and Okra were analysed for ash, moisture, fat, fibre, protein, carbohydrate, tannins, flavonoids, phenols and ascorbic acid composition. The percentage composition result values for ash, moisture, fat, fibre, protein and carbohydrate in the leaves ranged from 15.00% - 6.30%, 0.15% - 4.85%, 9.60% - 8.40%, 25.44% - 17.55%, 21.16% - 8.65% and 41.25% - 32.65% respectively. Tannins, flavonoids and phenols composition values ranges were 8.98% - 0.81%, 4.71% - 0.12% and 0.07% - 0.03% respectively while ascorbic acid content ranged from 3.16mg/100g to 2.84mg/100g.
