Abstract

The present study is to describe the histological characterization of rat neuromuscular receptors and their density in relationship to extrafusal muscle fibres. Neuromuscular receptors or (muscle spindles) were identified and isolated from fore and hindlimb muscles and examined by the light microscope. The _average numbers and densities of muscle spindles were found comparable to some other mammals. . Each muscle spindle was contained 2-4 intrafusal muscle fibres . Three types of intrafusal muscle fibres were distinguished as large (L), medium (M) and small (S). All muscle spindles innervated by sensory and motor nerve fibres which branching from spindle nerve trunk.

Abstract

The pattern of growth and carcass composition of indigenous Iraqi black goats were assessed through serial slaughter and carcass dissection of 36 kids at six different growth phases. The general linear model procedure and allometric growth ‘equations were used to assess the effects of various factors and differential growth of carcass components, ' respectively. Results showed that kids growth and carcass composition were significantly (P< 0-05 to P< O-O01) affected by the growth phase and sex of kids. The effects of growth phase clearly showed that slower growth of the body and of carcass components were observed during the third phase (i.e. after weaning). Although there was an effect on fat to lean ratios (P _ < 005), growth phase had no significant effect on dressing out proportion, and lean to bone ratios. A significant influence of sex (P < 0-O5) "was observed on lean to bone ratios. The log/log regression of weights of dissectible carcass components on hot carcass and empty body weight showed that the differential growth of bone was declining and that of lean was isometric relative to the growth of empty body weight. For carcass fat, the allometric growth coefficients (b) of 1.6 indicated that fat is a late maturing body component. Moreover the growth of carcass fat relative to empty body weight in local goat was slower than that reported for other goat breeds

Abstract

Biopsy were taken from 50 patients in order to cultivate Helicobacter pylori and blood samples to detect anemia , differential white blood eellcount and blood groups . The results showed that anemia was found in 48% of the patients while lymphocyte elevated in 44% of them , blood group 0 had the higher percentage ( 42% ) in those patients among the other blood group types" . ' . _ _ INTRODUCTION - Helicobacter pylori is a gram-negative microorganism that secretes many substances including ammoina , mucolytic enzymes ( adhesins , catalase and urease ) and acid secrete inhibitory proteins.(8) In addition to that it secrets toxin like vacuolating cytotoxin A (vacA).(7). - — Adhesin allows the organism to adhere , catalase might protect the organisum from the immune system , urease increase the secretion of gastrin which stimulate the intestinal‘ tissues to grow faster , and so could result in increased cancer risk .Urease is reponsible for hydrolyzing urea to NH3 and CO2, and acts as also protective by forming an alkalin environment around the organism . The combination of NH3 ,_Co2 and inhibitory proteins allows the bacteria to setup locallized pockets where it can neutralize even the acidity of ' blood type 0 stomachs The genetics of the secretor and non —-secretor system interact to alter an individuals risk for ulcer. In several studies , non—secretors of ABO substances have been found to have significantly higher rate ofduodenal and peplic ulcer .( 8) fl._ pylori infection increases the percentage of peripheral lymphocytes above the upper limit of referential.values .(l0)e ' ‘ Recent evidence suggests that fl_. pylori infection could cause iron deficiency anemia ( IDA ).(2). Adolescent femal athletes may have development of [_{_.__pylori associated ( IDA ) which can be managed by Q pylori eradication (5 ) .

Abstract

An attempt wasmade to study the analgesic effect of oil extract of Nigella sativa . seed, apple vinegar, honey and their combination. These materials were administered orally to male mice and were tested using a model of animal of pain (hot plate test). The result showed that N. sativa oil had a good analgesic effect, increasing hot plate latencies by 57.7%. Similar analgesic effect was produced by apple vinegar. Honey was much less effective; it produced only 52% increase in hot plate time. The effect of apple vinegar and honey was dose dependent. Combination of N. sativa with vinegar or honey did not result in enhancement of effect of N. saliva oil when measured, one hour after administration. However, potentiation effect was found between N. sativa oil and apple vinegar when the analgesic effect was measured at 4 and 6 hours after oral administration.
