Mejiuni, O.  2006.  Women are Flexible and Better Managers: The Paradox of Women's Identities, their Educational Attainments and Political Power. Abstract

Through a phenomenological reading of Nigerian women’s lived experiences, I examined the processes that account for the present low level of women’s participation in civic-political affairs and I argue that: there is magic consciousness in the religions and religious practices in Nigeria; that the official and unofficial presence of the religions in formal schools ensure that the beliefs and the values of their adherents fuse with the structure of the school (through the official and the hidden curriculum) and the larger society to construct an identity for women; and that the constructed identity represents a major factor in determining whether women have political power. I conclude that the potential for challenging and reordering the status quo exists in the women who perceive themselves as different from whom men would rather they are.

Cytotherapy. 8:375-80., Number 4 AbstractWebsite

BACKGROUND: Poor graft function without rejection may occur after stem cell transplantation (SCT). CD34(+) stem cell boost (SCB) can restore marrow function but may induce or exacerbate GvHD. We therefore investigated the feasibility and efficacy of CD34(+)-selected SCB in some patients with poor graft function. We present the results for eight patients (median age 46 years) transplanted initially for myelofibrosis, acute leukemia, myeloma and NHL. Six patients had received HLA-matched and two mismatched grafts (PB, BM; n=5, 3). After a median of 128 days post-transplant, the median leukocyte and platelet counts were, respectively, 2.05/nL and 18/nL. None had achieved platelet counts >50/nL even though donor chimerism was >95% in seven recipients. METHODS: Positive selection of CD34(+) stem cells was performed on a CliniMACS device, observing GMP and achieving a median of 98.5% purity. The patients received a median of 1.7 x 10(6)/kg CD34(+) cells and 2.5 x 10(3)/kg CD3(+) T lymphocytes. RESULTS: Hemograms at days +30, +60 and +90, respectively, showed steadily increasing median leukocyte (2.55, 3.15 and 4.20/nL) and platelet (29, 39 and 95/nL) counts. After a median follow-up of 144 days, five patients remained alive. No patient had developed acute or chronic GvHD. One patient died of leukemic relapse and two others of systemic mycosis. DISCUSSION: These preliminary results point to the possibility of safely improving graft function using CD34(+) positively selected stem cells without necessarily increasing the incidence of GvHD in patients with poor graft function post-SCT. Experience with more patients and longer follow-up should clarify the optimal role for this procedure.

Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) has come to stay as a last resort to salvage several patients suffering from various haematological and non-haematological diseases; in developed economies. It however remains a dream for the majority of the patients who are without health insurance or reside in developing nations and thus unable to afford its enormous costs. Technological inequalities, brain drain and lack of political will have also impeded effective transfer of the necessary expertise.In Nigeria, the awareness of HSCT is limited. Even our specialists remain to be convinced because of the challenges posed by our infrastructure on the one hand and on the other hand; graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), post-transplant infections, relapse and organ toxicity. Moreso, sickle cell anaemia, which is likely to benefit most from HSCT in our environment, has not been able to attain the level of successes achieved with thalassemias in Europe and the USA. One must point out quickly however, that local opportunities at HSCT will go a long way to develop local expertise, boost confidence and innovation and ultimately improve results; benefits which will all be lost if we continue to refer our patients. Moreover, for HSCT, an additional obstacle is the need for matching donors for which the odds weigh inordinately against the Nigerian abroad.While we await the effective take-off of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), it is however instructive to note that a private-sector-driven HSCT initiative was recently started successfully in India despite difficulties, at a tenth of the cost in the West.

Oyekunle, AA, Fesogun RB, Adediran IA.  2005.  Haematological parameters in prospective nigerian blood donors rejected on account of anaemia and/or microfilaria infestation, Jan-Mar. Niger J Med. 14:45-50., Number 1 AbstractWebsite

BACKGROUND: Worldwide, prospective blood donors are screened for blood transfusion-transmissible diseases. In addition, predonation fitness requires adequate haematocrit and, in the tropics, negative screening for microfilaria that may precipitate allergy. The high prevalence of anaemia and microfilaria, though treatable, has contributed to the dearth of eligible blood donors. This study aims to characterize anaemia in prospective blood donors rejected for anaemia and find haematological effects of microfilarial infestation in prospective blood donors. METHODS: This prospective study was carried out from 1st of August to November 30th, 2002 at the blood transfusion unit of the Haematology Department of Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospitals Complex (OAUTHC), Ile-Ife. All consenting prospective blood donors that were rejected for anaemia and or microfilaria infestation during the study period were studied for their age, sex and haematological profile. A randomly selected population of successful donors was similarly studied. RESULTS: Sixty rejected prospective blood donors (5.2% of the total screened)) were studied. Forty-five (75%) of them were rejected for anaemia alone, 10 (16.7%) for microfilaria alone and 5 (8.3%) for both anaemia and microfilaria. The mean ages of those rejected were 33.3(+/- 9.9) years for anaemia alone, 29.9(+/- 8.5) years for microfilaria alone and 35.4(+/- 8.3) years for those with anaemia and microfilaria combined. The mean age of the successful group was 28.9(+/- 8.5) years. Of the 60 rejected subjects, 53 were males while 7 were females. Blood film of the anaemia group revealed features suggestive of iron deficiency anaemia (hypochromic microcytic cells) in 60% of them. The white cell count (WCC) was significantly increased in the microfilarial group compared to others and it revealed lymphocytosis and eosinophilia. CONCLUSION: The importance of these findings have been discussed in line with the existing literature. The need for intensive health education to encourage voluntary donation and promote the interest of females in blood donation is emphasized.
