Smoke and ethanolic extract of nicotiana tabacum altered hippocampal histology and behaviour in mice

The effects of tobacco use on human health are well known and are documented in scientific reports. When tobacco is smoked or chewed, nicotine is absorbed by the lungs and oral cavity and quickly moved into the bloodstream where it is distributed rapidly through the circulatory system to reach the brain and peripheral nervous system. Male and female adult mice (N=32) were used for this study. The animals were randomly...

Dynamics of insecticide resistance and exploring biochemical mechanisms involved in pyrethroids and dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) cross-resistance in Anopheles gambiae s.l populations from Benin, West Africa

As a result of the free-insecticide treated net distribution by National Malaria Control Programme (NMCP) in July 2011 throughout the entire country, it is useful to investigate the dynamics of insecticide resistance in Anopheles gambiae from Benin and the metabolic resistance mechanisms involved in this evolution of resistance. Larvae and pupae of A. gambiae s.l. mosquitoes were collected from the breeding sites...
