A theoritical study of Curcuma longa’s anticancer agents, curcumin I and curcumin II, ın blood and gas by using density functional theory (DFT) and hartree–fock (HF)

The active compounds of Curcuma longa (Curcumin I and Curcumin II) were investigated by using density functional theory (DFT) and hartree–fock (HF) in blood and gases. Curcumin II react with the radicalic forms of the molecules that cause cancer cell formation easily. On the other hand, the free energy of Curcumin I is higher than Curcumin II. Hence, hydrogen bonds formation of Curcumin II is more than Curcumin I....

Flowcytometric analysis of aldehyde dehydrogenase activity in mononuclear cells from umbilical cord blood

Aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) is a cytosolic enzyme that is responsible for the oxidation of intracellular aldehydes. Elevated levels of ALDH have been demonstrated in murine and human progenitor cells compared with other hematopoietic cells, and this is thought to be important in chemoresistance and purification techniques and an indication of the proper function of the cell. A Flowcytometric method for the assessment...

Occurrence of hepatitis ‘B’ and ‘C’ amongst patients on antiretroviral drug therapy (ART) in a treatment centre in Calabar, Nigeria

The occurrence of hepatitis ‘B’ and ‘C’ virus amongst patients on antiretroviral drug therapy (ART) was studied. Two hundred (200) human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) positive subjects on ART and 100 apparently healthy HIV negative subjects (control) were recruited for the study. The subjects aged 1 to 75 years were screened for hepatitis B and C viral antibodies using hepatitis B and C test...
