Also, no study on serum concentration of allergen specific immunoglobulin E (IgE) in Nigerian was encountered. This study was therefore designed to investigate this dearth of knowledge. Serum samples of eighty adult asthmatic patients recruited for this...

The antibiogram and role of antibody in prophylaxis of albino rats against diarrhoea caused by Escherichia coli O157:H7

The antibiogram and role of antibody in prophylaxis to Escherichia coli O157:H7 infection in albino rats was investigated in this study. 500 stool samples were collected from apparently healthy individuals, out of which 80 were positive for the organism. The sensitivity patterns of the isolate to conventional antibiotics were investigated. Moreover, the role of antibodies to actively or passively protect...
