Effects of Aqueous Extracts of Palm Fruits (Elaeis guineensis) on Liver Function Indices of Male Wistar Albino Rats

This study investigated the effects of aqueous extracts of palm fruits on liver function indices of male Wistar albino rats with the view of understanding the hepatotoxic potentials of the extracts. Materials and Methods: Acute toxicity study was carried out with 18 male Wistar albino mice. Liver function indices were evaluated using 45 male Wistar albino rats and by following standard analytical protocols. The rats were divided into 5 groups with group 1 having 5 rats only and group 2-5 had 10 rats each. Group 1 rats were the normal control that received 2 mL kg–1 b.wt., of normal saline. Five rats each from group 2-5 received 100, 200, 400 and 600 mg kg–1 b.wt., of the fresh and fermented aqueous extracts of palm fruits, respectively for 28 days. Data was analyzed by one way ANOVA using SPSS. Results: The aqueous extracts were relatively safe as no death or adverse reactions were observed in the mice in 24 h after administration. There were significant (p0.05) when compared to the normal control. However, groups 4 and 5 that received higher doses of the fresh extract showed significant (p

Investigation of antiplatelet regimens without aspirin after DES implantation are ongoing and should inform future management of patients undergoing PCI.

CONCLUSION: Lipoid proteinosis is a rare genetic condition, which typically presents in infancy with dysphonia and subsequent skin involvement. Two cases are presented to demonstrate that laryngotracheal symptoms can be controlled with interval laser debulking and the 'pepper pot' technique without causing stenosis.
