  • Clinical Study of the Role of Differential Blood Count as a Pretreatment
           Diagnosis for Patients With Diffuse Large B Cell Lymphoma (DLBCL)

    • Authors: John Wahab; Limei Ai, Yu Shanshan, Marcilinus Zekrumah
      Abstract: The study employed simple differential blood count assessing clinical prognosis index at diagnosis of DLBCL patients. Each patient’s prognostic performance status was computed using absolute neutrophils/absolute lymphocytes(ANC/ALC), absolute lymphocytes/absolute monocyte (ALC/AMC), and absolute platelet/absolute lymphocytes APC/ALC) respectively, and then compared to preexisting parameters IPI, ECOG-PS, KI-67% protein expression, LDH, gender, bone marrow infiltration, and tumor location using ROC curves to determine the sensitivity and specificity threshold of each CBC performance index and survival analysis to estimate 5-year PFS and OS. The study showed that NLR compared to LDH at NLR ≥ 3.50 correlates to an increase in LDH >230UI/L, ECOG-PS score 2-4, increase in nodal tumor location, and elevation in cell proliferation at ki-67% protein expression (≥20%) at diagnosis exhibit poor prognosis to R-CHOP chemotherapy. Our results also demonstrated that LMR≤2.50 was associated with ECOG-PS score 2-4, increased number of extranodal tumor locations, in comparison with gender female participants had high sensitivity 60%, also low score LMR≤ 2.50 correspond to IPI score 3-5 among DLBCL patients. Our results further revealed that Pretreatment PLR≥150 at diagnosis correlates with LDH>230UI/L, and an ECOG-PS score of 2-4 in DLBCL patients.Conclusion: This study confirmed that pretreatment differential blood index NLR, LMR, and PLR are strongly associated with clinicopathological characteristics and provide important clinical prognostics in the early detection of DLBCL to the rituximab combined regimen.

  • Analysis of the Technical Efficiency of Castor Farmers in Oyo and Kwara
           States, Nigeria

    • Authors: Adegboyega Eyitayo Oguntade; Oluwatobi Adebisi Oguntade, Falola Abraham
      Abstract: This study was carried out to evaluate the technical efficiency and production practices of castor farmers in Oyo and Kwara States, Nigeria. Snowballing sampling technique was used. Data on production practices, inputs, and outputs were collected with the aid of a structured questionnaire by trained enumerators and analysed by using data envelopment analysis (DEA). Results showed that the mean technical efficiency was 0.4272 or 42.72%, the maximum efficiency was 1 and the minimum efficiency was 0.1315. Only 14% had a frontier technical efficiency of 1. For the castor farmers to operate on the production frontier, the efficiency needs to be increased by 57.28%. Technically inefficient farms should emulate the operating practices of the most productive farms, to improve their performance. Furthermore, the slacks of the DEA showed that the two most overused variables were seed and labour. The farmers need to use the right quantity of seeds and labour in other to reduce costs without reducing the output. The production practices for castor production were divided into three steps; pre-planting, planting, and post-planting. The list of operations included; land clearing, ploughing, ridging planting, weeding with hoe/machete, herbicide spraying, pesticide spraying, fungicide spraying, fertilizer application, pruning, harvesting, shelling and winnowing. From the study, it can be concluded that if the castor farmers were to operate on the production frontier, the efficiency of input usage would have to increase by 57.28%.

  • Spatio-Temporal Distribution of Phytoplankton and Water Quality of Some
           Rivers of Haute Sanaga Department (Central Africa)

    • Authors: Banga Medjo Pascale; Bilong Bilong Charles Félix, Zébazé Togouet Serge Hubert
      Abstract: In Cameroon, rivers are subjected to physicochemical disturbances, which increase the degradation of water quality. The aim of this study was to determine the spatio-temporal diversity of the phytoplankton groups and to evaluate the environmental parameters of the sampling sites in order to assess the quality of water in two hydrographic networks. Physicochemicals analyzes were carried out according to the standard methods while phytoplankton organisms were harvested by direct sampling and analyzed by the Utermöhl method. The analysis of Ammonia Nitrogen, Dissolved Oxygen, Electric Conductivity, Nitrates, Orthophosphates, pH, Temperature, and Turbidity.of water revealed the poor state of health of the water. Data from the Long Dry Season differed significantly (p < 0.05) from those recorded in other seasons. The phytoplankton communities were made up of Chlorophyta, Chrysophyta, Cyanophyta, and Euglenophyta with 11 classes dominated by Bacilliarophyceae (12 210 Ind/mL) and Cyanophyceae (6 208 Ind/mL). Phytoplankton densities were higher the Long Rainy Season and much lower in the Small Dry Season than in the Long Dry Season. Station near NODISCAM indicated significant organic pollution under the effect of agro-industrial discharges operating upstream of this company. For this station, the different values showed significant differences (p < 0.05) from one station to another. Finally, spatio-seasonal variations of phytoplankton densities showed logical responses to changes of physicochemical conditions in the environment. This work highlights the need to treat wastewater from collection channels before its dump into the natural environment, to prevent progressive eutrophication of the receiving aquatic environment, and poisoning by water consumption.
