DELAYED DIAGNOSIS IN CONGENITAL HYPOTHYROIDISM: CASE SERIES.

Congenital hypothyroidism (CH) may present normal at birth and, therefore, may evade diagnosis in the neonatal period. When it is diagnosed and treated early, its most important complication, mental retardation, is preventable. The signs of congenital hypothyroidism are nonspecific in neonates and hence diagnosis can be delayed or missed entirely. Only 5%-10% of cases have characteristic clinical findings to aid in diagnosis at birth so early diagnosis and treatment in countries where neonatal screening (NS) is not done is almost uncertain. However, as the child grows clinical feature become more conspicuous.

SYNTHESIS AND ANTITUMOR ACTIVITY OF A PORPHYRIN DERIVATIVE IN PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY

A photosensitizer 5, 15-di (p-benzoato) porphyrin (DBPP) was synthesized and characterized. UV-Vis absorption spectra indicated that compound DBPP had a characteristic long wavelength absorption peak at 630 nm and a singlet oxygen quantum yield of 0.39. Fluorescence spectra showed that DBPP had strong emission peaks at 633 nm and 698 nm that can be used in fluorescence imaging.

EVALUATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FIBRINOGEN, PLATELET AND DIFFERENTIAL WHITE CELL COUNT IN FEMALE RATS CO-ADMINISTERED CRUDE ETHANOL LEAF EXTRACT OF Ageratum conyzoides AND NIGERIAN BONNYLIGHT CRUDE OIL.

The present study was focused on the possibility of using ethanol leaf extract of A. conyzoides to ameliorate the consequences of the synergistic interaction between platelets, fibrinogen and some fractions of white blood cell with the goal of protecting the cardiovascular system against the consequences of exposure to the crude oil in rats. Twenty female Wistar rats (120-150g 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 3ml/kg of normal saline; group II gavaged 748.33mg/kg body weight of the extract of A. conyzoides. Group III animals were gavaged3ml/kg body weight of Nigerian Bonnylight crude oil (NBLCO).Group IV animals were gavaged 748.33mg/kg body weight of the extract of A. conyzoides, and 3ml/kg body weight of NBLCO.

FOUR DECADES OF REGIONAL RURAL BANKS IN INDIA PERFORMANCE BEFORE AND AFTER AMALGAMATION By AMRIT PATEL

For India, agriculture & rural development has been an integral part of country’s economic growth & development as agriculture alone employs country’s 48.9% population and has to provide food & nutritional security to its increasing population. Acknowledging the significant role of rural financial institutions to support agriculture & rural development, the Government has prioritized, since country’s independence in 1947, to progressively institutionalize the rural banking & credit structure.

Contribution Of Eucalyptus Tree Farming For Rural Livelihood In Eza Wereda, Ethiopia By Belay Zerga

Eucalyptus tree can produce large volumes of poles for construction and wood products for fuel wood and construction in a short time without requiring much attention for management. Particularly the advantage is more meaningful for small landholders like those of the study area. The study assessed causes of eucalyptus tree expansion, farming practices, perceived negative ecological impacts and its contribution to the rural livelihood in three selected KPAs (Kebele Peasant Administrations) namely, Zigba Boto (kolla), Shebraden (woinadega) and Koter Gedra (dega). In each selected KPAs a total of 180 households were selected by using purposive systematic  sampling techniques. Direct observations, discussions with key informants and focus groups were undertaken by the researcher. The required data were also collected using schedule through
