F Adetunji, O, O Akinshipe B, Ogunbodede E, O Ijaware C.  1996.  Bacteriological studies of dental caries in Ile-Ife, Nigeria, 1996/09/01. The Central African journal of medicine. 42:249-52. Abstract

To determine the relationship between bacterial colonization of tooth surfaces and dental caries, selective agar media-MM10 Sucrose, Rogosa SL and Blood agar were used to isolate bacteria from the scrappings of 60 tooth surfaces of 30 children and young adults. Mean age +/- SD was 13.3 +/- 4.1 (range seven to 19 years). Streptococcus mutans was isolated from 36 surfaces representing 60pc Lactobacillus species from 38 surfaces (68pc), and Actinomyces species from 12 surfaces (20pc). The individual prevalences of these organisms decreased with age. The distribution of bacteria according to surfaces examined showed that the pits and fissures were the main habitat of Streptococcus mutans and Lactobacilli were sensitive to erythromycin. Actinomyces species were 100pc sensitive to Penicillin. All the bacteria species isolated were also found to be 100pc sensitive to Olfoxacin (Tarivid). It is suggested that the use of antibiotics may stop the growth of cariogenic bacteria in individuals and thereby contribute to a decline in the incidence and prevalence of dental caries in the community.

Fadare, T, Oni AG, Olorunfemi M, Ogunfolakan B.  2020.  Geoelectric Characterization of Igbo Oritaa Archaeological Site, Iwo, Southwestern Nigeria, 2020/05/16. 21:333-344. Abstract

Electrical resistivity survey was carried out at Igbo Oritaa archaeological site in Iwo, Southwest Nigeria, with a view to providing information on the locations of buried artifacts that will aid followup excavation works and subsequent recreation of the historical activities at the ancient settlement.Within the upper 1.5 m, thirty-one (31) anomalous zones suspected to be of archaeological interest were identified from depth slice resistivity maps. Twenty-one (21) of these were high resistivity zones while ten (10) were low resistivity zones. Suspected archaeological artifacts include collapsed huts, iron smelting site, tomb, ancient dumpsites, and collapsed ancient wall. These artifacts were identified based on their geoelectric characteristics. Clustered high resistivity anomalous zones C, D, and E characterized by resistivity values greater than 120 ohm-m, were interpreted as suspected mini settlements. The low resistivity anomalous zones iii, iv, v, vii, viii, ix, and x within or close to the suspected settlements were attributed to ancient dumpsites. The elongated high resistivity anomalous zone F with resistivity values ranging from 120 – 200 ohm-m was attributed to tomb. High resistivity (200 – 400 ohm-m) anomalous zones C5, C6, D3, D4, F, and G aligned parallel to the delineated ancient trench were attributed to relics of a collapsed ancient wall.
Two of the recommended eight sites, sites 4 (Pit 1) and 5 (Pit 2), characterized by high resistivity closures were excavated. Artifacts recovered from these sites were pottery sherds, snail shell, animal jaw bone, cowries, flute, iron objects, glass beads, bones fragments, bone bead, metallic and bronze objects, oyster shells, finger like clay cylinder, and relics of a structure (hut) foundation. The recovered artifacts confirmed Igbo Oritaa as an ancient settlement occupied by people whose social, economic, dietary, and cultural activities were reflected by the archaeological finds.

Fadeiye, E, OC O, Soyoye D, RT I, TM O, TM O, O K, Ilona P.  2018.  Blood-glucose-response-on-consumption-of-cassava-varieties-garri-in-healthy Nigerian-subjects, 2018/01/18. 02 Abstract

Cassava is an important staple consumed in various forms by humans. The glycemic index and load of some Nigerian foods are well documented, but not much is documented on Vitamin A bio-fortified pruned cassava. The study determined blood glucose response in normal freeliving volunteer adults after consumption of vitamin A bio-fortified normally grown cassava (A), vitamin A bio-fortified pruned cassava (B) and non-bio-fortified normally grown cassava (C). The study employed single blind, randomized, cross-over investigation on 40 consenting apparently healthy adult volunteers with a documented normal fasting blood glucose level prior to recruitment. Fasting blood sugar level and post prandial of the participants were obtained on each day of the study after the consumption of 360 g of treatments (A, B&C eba) which was equivalent to 75 g anhydrous glucose using Accu-check glucometer. The treatments were served with vegetable soup prepared with fish and was administered to the subjects in a randomized manner. Oral glucose D was used as standard food. Post prandial glucose response (mg/dL) was obtained at 1 hour and 2 hours respectively. Data analyses were done using SPSS (version 22). Descriptive analysis was carried out and data were presented in percentages/proportions, means and standard deviations at 0.05% level of confidence. The 2 hours glucose post prandial (2 hrpp) for Treatment A, B and C in Mg/dL were 92.24, 94.74 and 98.91, while the glycemic loads were 308.0, 297.0 and 316.2 respectively. Treatment B had the lowest glycemic load. It was concluded that vitamin A bio-fortified cassava (especially when pruned before harvesting) had a lower post prandial glucose response, lower carbohydrate content and lowest glycemic load when compared to the non-bio-fortified conventional Garri. This variety of cassava may be better tolerated by people with metabolic disease/diabetes mellitus.
