Popoola, K, Gbenga O, Animasaun E.  2021.  Gender differentials in poverty among migrants in rural border communities of Oyo state, Nigeria, 2021/10/02. Abstract

The study examined relative poverty among migrant men and women in rural border communities of the Oyo State. Three ruralborder settlements were randomly selected in Atisbo and Saki-west Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Oyo State. Two hundred and
four (204) questionnaires were administered to the father and mother in 102 migrant households and 198 questionnaires were
retrieved for analysis. Using Principal Component Analysis (PCA), the study revealed that women have a higher poverty level than
men. Also, the Principal Component Analysis revealed that the high loadings of factors on component one (Dwelling Conditions), for
both men and women, imply inadequate living conditions. This indicates the need for improved dwelling conditions for the migrants
and also the need to focus on gender-based poverty interventions especially among females, as they are more affected by poverty.

Michael, O, Pitondo-Silva A, Silva L, Santos Ré A, Marcato P, Massaro T, Polizello A, Aires C.  2021.  Effect of Chitosan-Coated Nanostructured Lipid Carrier on Escherichia coli Biofilms, 2021/09/01. 11:1-8. Abstract

Antimicrobial delivery systems are useful tools to control biofilm growth on abiotic surfaces such as urinary catheter. The present study examined whether nanostructured lipid carriers coated with chitosan (NLC-chitosan) affected the growth of uropathogenic biofilms of Escherichia coli. NLC-chitosan was prepared using the emulsion and sonication method, and further characterized with respect to particle size, polydispersity index, and zeta potential. After determining the minimum inhibitory and bactericidal concentrations, E. coli biofilms were grown on catheter specimens (following a preliminary study in which E. coli was found to adhere better to the catheter surface than glass slide and plate). At the 48, 72, 96, and 120 h of growth, they were exposed to 0.9% NaCl solution (negative control), 0.12% chlorhexidine solution (positive control), or NLC-chitosan (final chitosan concentration of 0.28%). After 24 h of treatment, the biofilms were collected to analyze their bacterial viability. NLC-chitosan preparation had bimodal particle size distribution with mean size of 292.9 ± 2.5 nm and polydispersity index of 0.24 ± 0.03 and positive zeta potential (+19.1 ± 0.2) indicating the nanoparticle coating by chitosan. Compared with the control groups, NLC-chitosan affected bacterial viability of biofilms at all ages studied (p<0.05). NLC-chitosan can effectively control the growth of young and mature biofilms of uropathogenic E. coli.

Oseni, OM, Nailwal T, Pande V.  2020.  Momordica charantia L. (cucurbitaceae), a vegetable of utmost nutritive and pharmacological importance, 2020/07/08. :1-21. Abstract

Traditional medicine has been playing a crucial role in developing countries as it provides primary health care needs for a large majority of the population. This article reviews the current research on the phytochemicals, nutritive value, ethnobotanical uses, and pharmacological importance of Momordica charantia. The phytochemical analysis of this plant revealed that the plant is rich in nutrients and phytochemicals which are of great benefit. Also, the plant is among the plants popularly used in traditional medicine and has been proved to be effective. The biological activities of the plants had been carried out by many authors and their results have been documented. In addition, among the biological activities of these plant are antidiabetic, antiulcer, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, hypolipidemic, antibacterial, antimicrobial, antimalaria, antiviral, anticancer and antifertility. Moreover, some bioactive constituents such as alkaloids, tannins, flavonoids, saponins, glycosides, sterols, mucilages, and oleanolic acids are significantly present in the plant. It is now obvious that Momordica chlarantia can help as a natural source product in the treatment of many diseases particularly diabetes, cancers, cardiac, liver and kidney, malaria, and skin infection when properly administered.

Oseni, OM, Nailwal T, Pande V.  2020.  Germination of Mansonia altissima (A. Chev.) A. Chev. var. altissima: an endangered valuable timber species in Africa, 2020/02/07. 42:e47448. Abstract

The in vitro seed germination which results in the production of disease-free seedlings and greenhouse germination of the seeds of Mansonia altissima was investigated in order to establish a better way of germination of the timber species. Five levels of GA3 treatment were used in in vitro germination with three replicate and two seeds were inoculated in each of the jam bottle. Whereas, in greenhouse germination, five levels of different treatments were used, replicated three times and each Petri plate contained 15 seeds. The experiment was repeated twice and the data from each experiment was put together and used for the statistical analysis. The results showed that seeds germination occurred eight days after inoculation in in vitro but in the case of greenhouse germination, it took only five days. For in vitro rapid germination of Mansonia altissima, the MS medium should be supplemented with 1.0 μm of GA3. Equally, in greenhouse germination, the seeds need to be soaked in 1.0 mM of GA3 for 24 hours. Alternatively, in the absence of GA3, the seeds can be soaked in water for 24 hours before broadcasting the seeds on the seedbed for germination, as this will help to identify nonviable seeds.
