Growth Respond And Nutrient Utilization Of Clarias Gariepinus Fed Bean Cake
The study was conducted to assess the effect of bean cake on the growth of Clarias gariepinus. The feed was formulated and fed to Clarias gariepinus for a period of 8 weeks while using Coppens and Multifeed as the controls. Fishes were fed twice daily at 4% body weight/day. There were 12 fishes per experimental tank. The result obtained from the study indicated... Continue here

The Effects Of Dietary, Energy And Feed Utilization Of Compounded Feed (vital Chicken Feed And Fish Meal) On The Growth Rate Of Clarias Gariepinus
The experiment was conducted at the research unit of the Biological science Department, University of Abuja for a period of Twelve weeks. The experiment was set up to determine the effects of chicken feed (vital chicken feed) in the diet of Clarias gariepinus. The effects variables and nutrient utilization were determined from the practical diets using varying... Continue here

Modulatory Properties Of Telfairia Occidentalis Leaf Extract On Pancytopenia, Electrolyte Imbalance And Renal Oxidative Damage In Rats
Telfairia occidentalis is a medicinal plant acclaimed to possess many therapeutic potential. The study was carried out to investigate the possible modulatory effects of aqueous leaf extract of T. occidentalis on chemical-induced oxidative stress, renal dysfunction and pancytopenia in rats. Twenty-four (24) adult male rats were divided into 4 groups of 6 rats each.... Continue here

Serum Proteins And Enzymes Levels In Rats Following Co-administration Of Ethanolic Leaf Extracts Of Ageratum Conyzoides And Nigerian Bonnylight Crude Oil
The role of administration of leaf extract of Ageratum conyzoides following the administration of Nigerian Bonnylight crude oil (NBLCO) on serum proteins and enzymes was investigated. Twenty female Wistar rats (120 to 150 g body weight) were divided into four groups of five rats each. The rats in group I served as the control group and were oral gavaged 3 ml/kg of...
