      Abstract: Depression among undergraduates is gradually gaining public health concern globally. In Nigeria, there has been an observation of a rising prevalence of depression, suicides, and attempted suicides with associated detrimental effects on academic performance and overall functioning among undergraduates in the last decade. While  data on other risk factors for depression abound, there is paucity of data on the association between family characteristics and depression among the students of the University of Ilorin. Therefore, the aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of depression, its pattern of severity, and association with certain family characteristics among students attending the University of Ilorin Health Centre. A descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out among 353 selected students attending the Health Centre from May to July 2017 using structured questionnaires (Patient Health Questionnaire-9, Index of Family Relation scale) and semi-structured questionnaire. Analysis was done with the Statistical Package for Social Sciences version 20 and the level of statistical significance was set at a p-value of ≤ 0.05 at 95% confidence interval. The age range of the respondents was 16-26years with a mean of 20.43years SD ±2.20.The prevalence of depression was 45.3% out of which, 59.4% had mild depression, 27.5% had moderate depression, 9.4% had moderately severe depression and 3.7% had severe depression. Depression was positively associated with family relationship (p-value= 0.011), parents living together (p-value= 0.008) and order of birth (p-value = 0.001).  The study showed that the prevalence of depression among the students was high with worrisome proportion of those with severe forms (moderately severe and severe depression). Certain family characteristics (parents living together, order of birth, and family relationship) were found to be statistically associated with depression among the students. Routine screening at the University Health center for early diagnosis and treatment to avoid grave outcomes is advised.

      Abstract: The COVID-19 disease is a global pandemic which in its over twelve months of known existence has affected over 89 million people worldwide leading to psychological and social sequelae in the affected individuals, their caregivers, health workers and the general public. Nigeria seems to have at best, a skeletal and non-structured integration of mental health professionals into her COVID-19 response team, both at the state and the federal levels. This article proposes three (3) models for integrating a multidisciplinary mental health team into the management of infected individuals, their caregivers as well as health care workers, while taking into consideration, the human and material resources available for mental health in the country as well as the already existing pressure on the available resources.  These models include a mental health team participatory model, a multi-level training model and a multi-sectoral collaboration model. It is hoped that a careful and strategic integrating of these three models will help to create a sustainable framework for tackling the mental health consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic` in a developing country like Nigeria.

      Abstract: Several COVID-19 vaccines have been developed and approved at an unprecedented speed, while holding rigorous regulatory processes. However these vaccines cannot curb the epidemic without widespread acceptance. This study aims to assess the acceptance of COVID-19 vaccine among health care workers in a Nigerian population. A structured online English questionnaire created using Google forms was used in collecting data from 279 willing healthcare workers aged 18 years and above working and living within Ondo State. Their socio demographic information, perception/concern towards COVID-19 vaccination, risk assessment, exposure, contact and their willingness to receive the COVID-19 vaccine was obtained. Descriptive statistics such as frequencies, mean and standard deviation was done using SPSS version 21.0. Likelihood-ratio test leading to the derived chi-square and p-values was used to analyze the association between vaccine acceptance and participant characteristics, and Statistical significance was taken at p < 0.05. The mean age (SD) of the costrespondents was 37.53(9.8) years with an age range of 22-68 years. Majority were within the age group of 31-40years (107, 38.4%), females (160, 57.3%) and were married (210, 75.3%).Most respondents (178,63.8%) were willing to take the vaccine as soon as it becomes available, while a few (8, 2.9%)were not going to take the vaccine. More respondents expressed concern about the safety/adverse effect of COVID-19 vaccine (152, 54.5%), the effectiveness of the vaccine (135, 48.4%), and the rapidity of the development and approval of the vaccine(125, 44.8%)). Most of the participants believed that COVID-19 vaccination for health care workers should be voluntary (184, 65.9%). COVID-19 Vaccine acceptance is still suboptimal when compared to the rate needed to achieve herd immunity. More education on the safety and efficacy of Covid-19 vaccine is still very necessary to further address the barrier limiting most heath care workers from taking the vaccine.

      Abstract: This study investigated the possible protective effect of methanolic leaf extract of Azadirachta indica on gentamicin-induced nephrotoxicity in male Wistar rats. Male Wista rrats (average weight= 184.05g) were divided into five (5) groups, with five (5) rats each receiving vehicle (normal saline, p.o), GEN (21.16 mg/kg Gentamicin,i.p), AZI (200 mg/kg methanolic leaf extract of Azadirachta indica, MEAI, p.o), GEN+AZI (Gentamicin with 200 mg/kg and 400 mg/kg of AZI), 5 minutes after administration of Gentamicin for 7 days. Serum total protein, albumin, creatinine, urea, sodium, potassium and MDA levels were assayed using standard procedures. Renal histopathological study was also conducted. All data were expressed as means ± SEM and significance were accepted at p<0.05. 
      Gentamicin caused impaired renal function with increased serum urea, creatinine and MDA, decreased sodium, potassium, total protein and albumin levels. Histopathology revealed altered renal histoarchitecture. However, treatment with MEAI especially the 400 mg/kg dose, improved renal function, restored total protein and decreased MDA in Gentamicin-induced Nephrotoxicity.
      Taken together, MEAI shows capacity to improve renal function and histology by attenuating lipid peroxidation in Nephrotoxicity induced by gentamicin.

      Abstract: Cola nitida is the seed of the Kola tree which is commonly grown in the tropical rainforest of Africa. It has been in vogue use for its caffeine and many other beneficial contents such as the obromine. This study aims to investigate the effects of acetone extract of Cola nitida on memory, plasma aspartate aminotransferase activity and metabotropic glutamate receptor 1a in female Wistar rats. 
      Fifteen female Wistar rats were used and grouped into three. Control was given 1.2ml normal saline, low dose group was administered 50mg/kg body weight (bw) of Cola nitida extract and high dose group was administered 100mg/kg bw. Memory and cognition tests were evaluated using Morris water maze, Y-maze and using novel object recognition test. Plasma lactate dehydrogenase and aspartate amino transferase levels were estimated and immunohistochemical analysis of the hippocampus and amygdala was observed. 
      There was significant (p<0.05) decrease in duration to get the escape platform in high dose group compared to control in the Morris water maze test. Also, there was a significant (p<0.05) increase in aspartate aminotrannsferase level in the group administered low dose of the extract of Cola nitida. Avivid stimulation of the glutamate receptors was observed following immunohistochemical analysis. 
      In conclusion, Cola nitida enhance memory in female Wistar rats through the stimulation of glutamate receptors and increase in plasma aspartate glutamate receptors and increase in plasma aspartate aminotrannsferase level.

      Abstract: HIV/AIDS is still ravaging the world and it is a disease of public health importance. Therefore, it is still worthwhile to focus on its preventive measures. Considering the central role of healthcare workers (HCWs) in the care of HIV/AIDS clients, it is imperative for them to have good knowledge, positive attitude and able to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.  Studies reported that healthcare workers stigmatize people with HIV/AIDs, thus, making the patients default from receiving care and increasing the spread of the disease. It is perceived that the knowledge, attitude, and the demographic variables of healthcare workers may be contributory to their stigmatization towards HIV/AIDs patients. There is a dearth of data in Abuja concerning the examination of these variables about HCWs and HIV/AIDS prevention. This study examined these variables and their influence on the preventive role of HCWs toward HIV/AIDs patients in Abuja in order to provide basis for further studies. Descriptive survey design was used for the study, census sampling was used to select all 210 HCWs that directly care for HIV/AIDS patients in the two area councils where HIV/AIDs patients receive care in Abuja. The HCWs returned 196 analyzable The need to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS questionnaires. Self-developed structured questionnaire was the instrument for data collection.  Data was analyzed using percentages, regression, and T- test at 0.05 significant level. Results revealed that HCWs had good knowledge about HIV/AIDs and control of the spread of HIV/AIDS (p <0.05); gender did not contribute significant difference to knowledge (p> 0.05); relatively good attitude to prevention and control of HIV/AIDs (p < 0.05), females displayed better attitude than males; other demographic variables tested had significant effect on the HCWs' prevention of HIV/AIDS. Healthcare workers in the country should be studied for comparison with the findings in this study.

      Abstract: Globally, malaria disease is a widespread occurrence especially in many parts of Africa. The goal of therapy for malaria is to lessen morbidity and mortality and encourage rational drug use to prevent or repress the emergence of resistance to antimalarial drugs. Communal awareness through proper education by healthcare professionals is key in the total eradication of malaria. We aimed at evaluating the knowledge, attitude and practice of rural-urban dwellers of Abraka community, Delta State, Nigeria towards antimalarial therapy. A community-based cross-sectional survey was carried out using questionnaires among 600 dwellers of Abraka community from February to April 2019, and the data obtained was presented as percentage using descriptive statistics. The distribution showed that majority of the respondents were students 378 (63%), between the ages of 18-25; 33% were males while 67% were females and 81% of all respondents had tertiary education. All respondents reported to have heard about malarial and knew the common protection methods against malaria. About 97% use drugs in the treatment of malaria, especially the antimalarial drugs combination therapy. In summary, this study reveals that there is a high knowledge of malaria infection and a positive attitude towards malaria treatment by rural-urban dwellers of Abraka community, Delta State, Nigeria.

      Abstract: Ionizing radiation is essentially considered a viable treatment modality for human malignancies. Acute and chronic toxicities with severe morbidity and mortality are well documented. Experimental and clinical approaches to correcting radiation haemopoietic syndrome deficiencies have focused on cytokine activity with same documented toxicities. Limited data is available on differentiation enhancing effects of plant extracts on haemopoietic progenitor cells following radiation injury. This study aimed to determine the potential haemopoietic progenitor cells differentiation effects of Telfairia occidentalis in irradiated guinea pigs. Bone marrow cells from irradiated guinea pigs were harvested and treated with varying concentrations of 0.313-100% of the extracts of the Telfairia occidentalis and the degree of differentiation of the cultured guinea-pig bone marrow haemopoietic stem cells determined. The concentration of the extract ranges from 0.313-100%. This showed Mean ± SD of 3.54±0.30, 0.18±0.01 and 0.88±0.05 for the extract treated, non-extract treated (-ve control) and GM-CSF (+ve control) treated culture plates respectively [p=0.000]. Extract concentrations corrected positively with differentiation of the cultured guinea-pig bone marrow haemopoietic stem cells at 'r' 0.835 [r= 0.812; p=0.001]. Conclusively, Telfairia occidentalis extract has positive differentiation enhancing effects on haemopoietic progenitor cells with deflection in favour of erythroid lineage.

      Abstract: Disrespect and abuse during childbirth can be described as a violation of the human rights of concerned parturients. The occurrence of these events may negatively impact upon uptake of antenatal and delivery services by pregnant women and this in turn may contribute to an increased maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity. Disrespect and abuse during childbirth is a relatively common occurrence and little research has been done on this issue that could negatively affect our health care indices. This study was carried out among recently delivered women (women who had delivered not more than 6 weeks previously), attending pre-identified child immunization clinics in Ilorin. Women who had Caesarean delivery, preterm delivery, instrumental vaginal delivery and women with multiple delivery in which one of the babies suffered a mortality were excluded. 
      Two hundred and seventy-one recently delivered women were recruited. The mean age was 27.67 ± 3.85. Majority of respondents were Muslim (68.3%), married (98.9%) and had at least a secondary school education (76.4%). The commonest place of delivery was a secondary health care facility (40.6%) and the most frequent attendant at delivery was a doctor (39.9%). Forms of disrespect and abuse experienced by respondents included non-consented care, being left alone for prolonged periods, (88.6%), being ignored when they called for help (10.7%) and undue detention at facility due to non-payment of bills (6.3%). Despite the foregoing however, 8.1% believed they received disrespectful and abusive care. 
      There is a disconnect between women's actual child-birth experiences and report of disrespect and abuse during childbirth. There is a need to improve education of women and providers about what constitutes disrespect and abuse during childbirth as this will translate into increased confidence uptake of facility births and a reduction in maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.

      Abstract: Adolescent Obesity is an important public health crisis with varying prevalence rates in several parts of Nigeria. A study in South-West Nigeria reported a prevalence of 4.2%, while another in South-South Nigeria reported a prevalence of 4.3%. The present study determined the prevalence of Obesity and its association with birth weight, physical inactivity and eating habits amongst apparently healthy adolescents in Uyo. 
      This was a cross-sectional study of 1701 adolescents, carried out between December 2016 and April 2019. It involved weight, height and waist circumference (WC) measurement as well as administration of pre-tested questionnaires which assessed birth weight, television viewing, exercise involvement, feeding frequency and soft drink consumption. 
      Prevalence of Obesity was 5.6% using Body Mass Index (BMI), while it was 11.2% using waist circumference percentile and 9% using waist-to-height ratio(WtHR). Meal frequency and sedentary behaviour were found to be predisposing factors for obesity. No association was found between birth weight and obesity. This study showed a high prevalence of general and central obesity.
