Effect of essential oil of the leaves of Eucalyptus globulus on heamatological parameters of wistar rats

The study was designed to evaluate the effect of essential oil extract of Eucalyptus globulus on haematological parameters of wistar rats. Twenty-five adult wistar rats weighing between 80 to 130 g were used. The rats were divided into five groups; with group one as the control group. Increasing doses (12.5, 25.0, 50.0, 72.5 mg/ml) of the extract were administered orally daily to the other four groups for a...

Unutilized energy reserves and mineral contents of fibroid tissues suggesting perturbed membrane transport processes

Compositions of intramural uterine fibroid (IUF) and subserous uterine fibroid (SUF) tissues were studied. Results showed that IUF and SUF, respectively, contained (%) 77.26 ± 0.05 and 77.49 ± 0.02 moisture and 22.74 ± 0.05 and 22.52 ± 0.02 dry matter, on wet-weight basis. Their respective moisture, crude fat, crude protein, ash and total carbohydrates (%) were 4.67 ± 0.05 and 4.38...
