Dermatoglyphics and Cheiloscopy Pattern in Hypertensive Patients; A Study in Ahmadu Bello University

Essential hypertension is sustained high blood pressure not attributable to a single cause but reflecting the interaction of multiple genetic and environmental influences. Dermatoglyphic involves the study of epidermal ridges present on the surface of palms, finger, soles and toes while cheiloscopy is the study of the grooves or furrows present on the vermilion border of the human lips. Finger and lip prints are known useful genetic markers in some congenital and clinical diseases; as such this study was aimed at determining the association between fingerprint and lip print patterns in hypertensive patients. The present study was carried out with hypertensive patients attending the outpatient clinic of Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH), Zaria and was compared with a control group with normal blood pressure.

Hepatic Transaminase Activity in Nandrolone Decanoate treated Albino Mice

Anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS) are the synthetic derivatives of testosterone which are widely accepted as performance enhancers and illicitly self-administered to increase muscle mass and physical endurance. The use of anabolic steroids by sportsmen and teenagers has increased to such extents thereby raising questions about their hepatotoxicity. The present study elucidates the adverse effects of AAS when administered at supraphysiological doses. Its focus is on the effects of massive doses of nandrolone decanoate, the most commonly abused AAS on the levels of the two important enzymatic liver biomarkers, aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and alanine aminotransferase (ALT) in albino mice. Tissue samples (liver tissue) were collected from normal control and nandrolone decanoate treated (2.5mg twice a week, administered intramuscularly for 13 weeks) albino mice and AST/ ALT levels of liver tissue were measured by following the method of Reitman and Frankel (1957).

Assessment of trace metals in drinking water and groundwater sources in Ota, Nigeria

The levels of six trace metals namely iron, lead, manganese, copper, zinc and nickel were investigated in drinking water and groundwater sources in Ota, Nigeria. Detected concentrations of Mn, Cu and Zn were below the World Health organization and Standard Organization of Nigeria maximum permissible limits. Fe (92%) and Ni (53%) in some drinking water and groundwater sources were found in concentrations that exceeded the maximum permissible limits for these metals. Notably, the levels of Pb were below detection limit in all the bottled, well and borehole water, with exception of the hospital borehole, while the swimming pool had high concentrations of Fe (0.88 mg/L), Pb (0.21 mg/L) and Ni (0.19mg/L) compared to SON (0.30 mg/L), WHO (0.01 mg/L) and WHO (0.07 mg/L) respectively. Pollution indices indicated significant pollution of Pb, Fe and Ni. Overall, the mean metal levels in the sampled water sources followed a descending order, Fe>Cu>Zn>Ni>Pb>Mn. Some of the drinking water and groun

Wind Analysis of Building Frames on Sloping Ground

In this research paper, the effect of wind velocity and structural response of building frame on sloping ground has been studied. Considering various frame geometries and slope of grounds. Combination of static and wind loads are considered. For combination, 60 cases in different wind zones and three different heights of building frames are analysed. STAAD-Pro v8i software has been used for analysis purpose. Results are collected in terms of axial force, Shear force, moment, support reaction, Storey-wise drift and Displacement which are critically analysed to quantify the effects of various slope of ground.

Correlation Study of Soil Parameters of Kutch district Agriculture Land

Correlation analysis is used for the study of chemical parameters of agricultural soil of different villages of Kutch district of Gujarat state in Western India. Our primary focus is to study mung bean crop based on randomly selected 30 medium black soil samples. Under the Soil Health Card Program of Government of Gujarat, soil samples were collected by authorized locally trained farmers and brought for analysis to Soil Test Laboratory, Bhuj. Standard Methods were used for the soil quality analysis. The objective of this work is to study and evaluate relation between soil properties and macro-nutrients (P, K, C and S) by using correlation analysis. Present study concludes that the statistical method ‘correlation analysis’ can provide a scientific basis for controlling and monitoring the agriculture soil fertility management.
