Improving In-Vitro Fertilization Success Rate: A System Biology Approach


Faduola, Paul (2012)
Clinical Embryology
Nordica Fertility Centre,Lagos.
(Review Paper)
Correspondence to:  Faduola, P,  sheyipaul06@yahoo.com; +2347031932336

ABSTRACT

The shortcomings of morphologic evaluation of embryos have led researchers in to OMIC science as a way to  identify and quantify all of the components in an embryos as a means of evaluating viability. The role of genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics in the assessment of the quality of an embryo have been investigated. Many biomarkers of implantation potential have been discovered and many are still being studied  using a variety of non-invasive methods .This study aim to improve understanding on the state of current in-vitro fertilization (IVF) practice and how system biology could improve the IVF success story.


Keywords: Genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, embryo and stimulation.

A Review On Use Of Leaf Meal On Livestock And Poultry Feeding

ABSTRACT

 It is beneficial to substitute Costlier commercial concentrates with locally available non-conventional feed ingredients. There are many other potential substitutes for reduction of cost. However inclusion of leaf meal as alternative feed ingredient can be a good option when we all are thinking to reduce cost of production. The inclusion of leaf meal to replace the costlier sources of protein is beneficial due to low cost of production of leaf meal, presence of protein greater in value to Maize (highest inclusion ingredient) and almost similar to legumes like pea, presence of carotene in higher amount than any other feed sources. Leaf meal products of good quality guaranteed to contain a minimum of 200000 IU of Vitamin A activity per kg of which the supply was 45000IU and 17% protein on average. Leaf meals are good sources of minerals as well. They are particularly rich in ascorbic acid and Vitamin A and contain significant amounts of Riboflavin. Researchers have shown same rate of body weight gain in broiler and swine whereas increased production in milk from cattle due to substitution of protein rich ingredient by leaf meal. Laying response from layer chickens have been increased and also of higher quality attributed by egg shape and increased yolk content due to presence of carotene. Researches on leaf meal have found the same response as provided by expensive feed ingredients, if proper detoxification methods like sun drying, heat treatment or the inclusion of Ferric Sulphate and Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) are used as remedy to combat toxins.



Keywords: Protein, carotene, alternative source, leaf meal, detoxification.

ABSTRACT

Significant binding of chloroquine occurs in the liver, kidney and spleen (Taylor and Francis 1987).
For a very short period of three days, ten male rats were exposed to chloroquine phosphate injection intraperitoneally /IP) for three days. The treated rats received 0.125ml/100g body weight of chloroquine phosphate injection intraperitoneally. Control rats received the same amount of normal saline intraperitoneally. Histologically, the micrographs of control and treated rats kidney were compared. Investigations confirmed defects in microscopic structures. In the kidney there were few renal corpuscles in the treated rats compared with controls.



Keywords: chloroquine, kidney, sprague-dawley rats,histology.

ABSTRACT

Ten male rats were exposed to chloroquine phosphate injection intraperitoneally /IP) for three days. The treated rats received 0.125ml/100g body weight of chloroquine phosphate injection intraperitoneally. Control rats received the same amount of normal saline intraperitoneally. Enzyme assay was carried out on the liver and compared with controls. It was observed that chloroquine caused significant reduction in the enzyme activity of the Cyclic-AMP Independent Casein Kinases from rats liver cytosol of the treated rats compared with controls.
