This study on the cerebellum is one in the series of several studies aimed at determining the effects of Yaji on the histology of the brain. Eighteen-week-old white albino rats of an average weight of 170 g were used for this study and they were divided into eight (8) groups (A-H). Group A served as control while groups B-H served as the test groups. For 2 weeks, group A received normal feed only, while groups B-H received feed plus graded levels of Yaji (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, and 70%, respect...

Artesunate is a semi-synthetic derivative of artemisinin (Qinghaosu), an ancient Chinese fever medicine, which is now widely used as an antimalaria. The histological effects of normal and double normal dose of artesunate on the heart in Wistar rats were studied. The rats were divided into three groups (A, B and C) of five rats each. A and B served as the treatment groups, while C served as the control group. Group A rats were given 4mg/kg body weight (b.w) of artesunate daily for 3 days followed...

This comparative study to determine the acute and chronic effects of Yaji (a complex Nigerian meat sauce) on some hematological parameters involved Wistar rats of an average weight of 188 g. The Wister rats were randomly assigned into six groups (n = 24); group A rats served as the control while group B1-F1 and B2- F2 served as the test groups. Group A (control) received 300 g of growers mash (feed) only and B received 237 g of feed plus 9 g each of the combined constituents of Yaji, while group...

The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of Mangifera indica L. (mango) stem bark crude Aqueous Extract (AE) on the morphology and biochemical functions of the liver in wistar rats. Adult wistar rats used in the study were divided into 2 groups: Group 1 rats were untreated and served as control and Group 2 experimental rats were orally given 1 mL (100 mg) daily of aqueous extract for a period of 14 days. The body weight changes and the weight of the liver were measured and the ...

This experiment was designed to study the histological effects of oral administration of normal and double normal doses of artesunate on the histology of the liver in wistar rats. The rats were divided into three groups (A, B and C) of five rats each. A and B served as the treatment groups, while C served as the control group. Group A rats were given 4 mg/kg b. w of artesunate daily for 3 days followed by 2 mg/kg b. w daily for next for 4 days. Group B rats were given 8 mg/kg^2 b. w of artesunat...

The objective of this study was to investigate the effect of oral administration of artesunate on the histology of the testis in wistar rats. Adult male wistar rats used in the study were divided into 3 groups: Group A received 4mg/kg b.w of artesunate daily for 3 days followed by 2mg/kg b.w daily for next for 4 days; group B received 8mg/kg/kg b.w of artesunate daily for 3 days followed by 4mg/kg b.w daily for next 4 days and group C were given only distilled water and served as control.

This experiment was designed to study the effects on the body and testicular weights of adult wistar rats that recieved an oral administration of normal and double normal doses of artesunate. The rats were divided into three groups (A, B and C) of five rats each. A and B served as the treatment groups, while C served as the control group. Group A rats were given 4mg.kg 1 b.w of artesunate daily for 3 days followed by 2mg.kg 1 b.w daily for next for 4 days. Group B rats were given 8mg.kg 1 b.w of...
