Kenya Journal of Sciences Series B.". In: Proceedings of the 1st Workshop . J Hum Ecol, 26(3): 163-173 (2009).; 1926. Abstract
Fusarium wilt caused by Fusarium udum Butler, is an economically important disease of pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan (L.) Mill). Information on the mechanisms of resistance to this disease in pigeonpea is limited. To study the role of vascular occlusion in wilt resistance, isolates of F.udum were inoculated onto resistant and susceptible varieties of pigeonpea and observed under light and transmission electron microscopes. The presence of F. udum in wilt susceptible plants was characterized by mycelia and conidia in the xylem vessels, plugging in some vessels, disintegration of xylem parenchyma cells in the infected areas, and the formation of cavities due to heavy colonization in the pith cortex vascular bundle. Resistance to F. udum in the roots and stems of wilt resistant plants was associated with low fungal colonization and high occlusion due to tyloses and gels in the xylem vessels. There were significant differences (P = 0:05) in the number of xylem vessels occluded by tyloses in resistant and susceptible plants with a maximum of 22.5% and 8.0% occlusion, respectively. It is probable that tyloses and gels formed as a result of F. udum interaction in wilt resistant plants are part of a resistance mechanism. Key words: Fusarium wilt,cajanus cajan, resistance, tylose, vascular occlusion

ABDEL PROFMALEKADELKAMEL. "Mathias K, Abdel Halim S, Karin B, Helga G, Adel K Malek et al. 1999. MtDNA analysis of Nile River valley populations: A genetic corridor or barrier to migration?. Am J Hum Genet. 64:1166-1766. U.S.A.". In: Am J Hum Genet. 64:1166-1766. U.S.A. John Benjamins Publishing Company; 1766. Abstract
A sample of 166 normal adult males and females was taken from different colleges of Assiut representing those living in upper Egypt. Each subject has been studied for measurements of stature (S), hand length (HL) and hand breadth (HB). The data were statistically analysed in order to assess the relationship between stature and hand measurements. The correlation matrix of the study indicates close similarity of the relationship between stature and hand measurements in both sexes and in both sides. A generalized multiple regression equation has been designed to estimate stature from values of hand length and hand breadth regardless of sex or side in the form: S = 34.5 + 5.77 HL + 2.7 HB +/- 5.1. This equation may be helpful to obtain approximate stature when there is difficulty in obtaining a direct measurement or where there is a chance print of a criminal or an amputated hand or arm.

KIPNGETICH PROFBIAMAHELIJAH. "Biamah, E.K. and R.K.K. Cherogony (1994h). Tillage technique for effective soil erosion control in Kenya: Evaluation of alternative fanya juu terrace designs. In: Soil Tillage for Crop Production and Protection of the Environment. Proceedings of 13th Inte.". In: Bloemfontein, South Africa. Kisipan, M.L.; 1194. Abstract
This paper reviews some research studies on tillage methods influencing soil and moisture conservation in the eastern African countries of Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi and Ethiopia during the past four decades. Most of these studies were conducted in marginal rainfall (semi arid ) areas and on shallow soils of various textures (sandy clay loam, sandy clay, clay and loam). The studies were meant to establish the effects of tillage and residue management practices on physico-chemical soil properties (i.e. structure, bulk density, soil moisture and organic matter contents), runoff and infiltration. This review emphasizes the importance of appropriate tillage and residue management methods (contour bunds and terraces, minimum tillage, tied ridging, mulching and conventional tillage) in providing soil conditions favourable for soil moisture conservation and subsequent crop performance and yield on smallholder farms.

Obondo A, Karani A, Wagoro MA. "Rehabilitation and community mental health.". 200. Abstract

Cerebral venous sinus thrombosis is an uncommon yet potentially life threatening condition which is often under-diagnosed or misdiagnosed because of the variability of the clinical signs and symptoms. The imaging findings are often subtle thus the need for a high index of suspicion. The superior sagittal and transverse sinuses are the most frequently involved. The correct diagnosis of cerebral venous thrombosis relies on neuroimaging studies. The two cases reported highlight the fact that the radiologist may be the first clinician to suspect and diagnose this condition. This ultimately affects prognosis as early diagnosis and treatment reduces morbidity and mortality.

A cholinomimetic substance was isolated from desiccated venom of Dendroaspis polylepis by one-dimensional ascending paper chromatography. The migratory and staining properties of the substance were compared with those of standard acetylcholine. Pharmacological and biochemical identification was carried out on various in vitro and in vivo biological test objects as well as with high-voltage paper electrophoresis. The assay of the cholinomimetic substance was done on both superfused guinea pig ileum and hamster stomach strips. The cholinomimetic substance content was 2.44 - 3.46mg/0.96gm of total protein in the desiccated venom.

ODHIAMBO DRALFRED. "Comparison of ct and MRI in various pathoanatomic regions of the body.". Abstract

The birth of radiology in 1895 was accidental. However its place in disease investigation is sealed. The ground breaking discovery invited awe and indignation in almost equal measure. The medical operative of the day was quick to recognize the potential it possessed in the investigation of medical ailments. To the less technically endowed, the development represented an assault on human dignity and privacy. No human mortal they argued was entitled to know what lay beyond the skin. To them the discovery was a bad omen.
Fast forward to 1971 and computed tomography was to explode on the medical scene. This discovery considered by many the most important discovery since the establishment of X rays allowed the evaluation of the 3rd dimension in human anatomy. In coming decades the technology would evolve immeasurably. Today computed tomography finds relevant applications in imaging of virtually all body regions.
So robust was CT in its diversity of uses that the protracted development of MRI technology caught manufacturers and doctors alike napping. In any event Sir Peter Hounsfield stumbled on MRI as he attempted to find a suitable replacement to X ray radiodiagnosis. To this end his efforts came to a cropper. His persistence and that of coworkers was to unleash the incomparable imaging tool that it has become..
Today the twin technologies of CT and MRI straddle the imaging field like a colossus. The pace of innovation is mind boggling. Even imaging specialists find it challenging to remain up to date on more than one front of diagnostic radiology. The dilemma of the clinician in being able to identify the most cost effective imaging study then becomes obvious.
The most important question for them is to ask whether regional biases exist. Are there pathoanatomic regions in which one tool holds sway? Can a simple “cook book” be developed to guide the doctor who has the patient in his surgery on the most appropriate imaging approach? Knowing the general ball park diagnostic avenue would profoundly reduce the number of supporting investigations apart the study of choice lowering costs to the patient. Waiting lists would shorten as would idiosyncrasies.

ODHIAMBO DRALFRED, BYAKIKA DRBESSIE, GACHIE DRANDREW, OLIECH PROFJOSEPH. "Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) as the initial presentation for colorectal malignancy.". Abstractluts_presentation.pdf

The presenting features of colorectal carcinoma in the African patient are not different from reports worldwide although the majority present late with features of advanced disease (1). Increasing frequency of diagnosis may be attributed the twin effects of changing diets and easier access particularly by the elite population to modern diagnostic imaging tools.
A 72 year old African male presented to a private practitioner with a 2 week history hematuria, frequency, nocturia and subsequently a 2 day history of retention of urine (AUR). Imaging studies demonstrated a tumour mass invading the roof of the urinary bladder. Following surgical extirpation the mass was subjected to histopathological evaluation.
