Abstract
This study aimed at investigating the growth inhibitory effect of probiotic Lactobacillus on Candida species isolated from oral thrush of AIDS-defining ill patients. Clinical isolates of Candida species were obtained from Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital Lafia, Nasarawa State. de Man Rogosa Sharpe agar was used as starter culture for the isolation of Lactobacilli. The diameters of the antimicrobial assay were recorded using the following dilution in part per mL (1:10, 1:100, 1:1000, 1:10000 and 1:100000) with the highest inhibition zone of 8 ± 1.414 mm followed by 7 ± 0.000 mm and the lowest dilution recorded as 5 ± 0.000 mm in the highest concentration of 1:10. As the dilution concentration decline, the inhibitions become weaker. The lowest dilution concentration (1:100000) however showed resistance in all the agar wells. Conclusively, Lactobacillus species has growth inhibition against yeast organisms in vitro. This study therefore recommends further research to identify more probiotic organisms that can potentially inhibit the growth of disease causing pathogens. Researchers should put more mental energy into use as research is the only source of solution to combat most of the emerging diseases around us.

    ABSTRACT The antibiotic susceptibility pattern of six Gram negative pathogenic bacteria; Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, Salmonella, Shigella and Enterococcus was evaluated. The test organisms were subjected to antibiotic susceptibility test using the Kirby Bauer method. A multi-disc containing eight (8) antibiotics; Ceftrazidime... Continue Reading
    ABSTRACT A total of 100 subjects were screened for  S. aureus strains, thirty (30) S. aureus isolates were obatained. The carriage of β-lactamase among the 30 isolates was determined by using starch iodine agar plate method. It was found that 19(63.3%) of the S. aureus strains were β-lactamase producing. Plasmid curing of the β-lactamase... Continue Reading
    Abstract Objectives: The present study reported the antibiotic susceptibility profile and pattern of pathogens isolated from in- and out-patients with respiratory tracts infections. Methods: Sputum and throat swab samples were collected aseptically from subjects and cultured on the appropriate bacteriological media. Bacterial isolates were... Continue Reading
    The growing threat and spread of antibiotic resistance by a wide range of common pathogens has led to increased investigations into traditional medicinal plants as alternatives. Honey has been used as a medicine since ancient times in many cultures and is still used in ‘folk medicine’. The moist environment of chronic wounds is an ideal growth... Continue Reading

    ABSTRACT CHAPTER ONE 1.0 INTRODUCTION We are constantly being exposed to infectious agents and yet, in most cases, we are able to resist these infections. It is our immune system that enables us to resist infections. The immune system can be defined as a network of lymphoid organs, tissues and cells and also the products of these cells. The main...
