  1. Stabilization of lateritic soil with pulverized palm kernel shell (PPKS) for road construction

    Stabilization of lateritic soil with pulverized palm kernel shell (PPKS) for road construction

    This paper discusses the stabilization of lateritic soil with pulverized palm kernel shell (PPKS), an agricultural waste, for road construction. Samples of lateritic soil with the addition of 5.00–12.50% PPKS at an increment of 2.50% were prepared for index and...
  2. Utilization of pulverized cow bone (PCB) for stabilizing lateritic soil for road work

    Utilization of pulverized cow bone (PCB) for stabilizing lateritic soil for road work

    This research explored the possibility of improving the engineering properties of lateritic soil with pulverized cow bone (PCB), a processed animal waste obtained from slaughtered cows, for road construction. The effects of PCB on the lateritic soil samples were evaluated...
  3. Gender-Based Domestic Violence against Children: Experiences of Girl-Children in Nigeria

    Gender-Based Domestic Violence against Children: Experiences of Girl-Children in Nigeria

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Journal of Psychology in Africa
    This study investigated the dynamics of gender-based domestic violence against children in Nigeria. This qualitative study explored the experiences of 20 purposively selected girl-children (age range = 12 to 15 years) from two SOS Children's Village who have been victims...
  4. Is the absolute requirement for informed consent before HIV testing a barrier to public health? A case report and management challenges

    Is the absolute requirement for informed consent before HIV testing a barrier to public health? A case report and management challenges

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of AIDS Research
    Clinicians in sub-Saharan Africa are faced with a major challenge of parental refusal to test their children for HIV. We present a case of a nine-month-old child with a clinical presentation suggestive of HIV infection whose mother persistently declined HIV...
  5. Characteristics of patients presenting with complications of abortion in a tertiary health facility in south-west Nigeria

    Characteristics of patients presenting with complications of abortion in a tertiary health facility in south-west Nigeria

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Family Practice
    Objectives: Abortion is associated with significant healthproblem with short- and long-term complications that affect the quality of life of those who are fortunate enough to escape mortality. This study evaluated the population of patients with complications of abortion, identified the...
  6. The California bearing ratio (CBR) of some mechanically stabilised laterite sub-base soils along the Ibadan-Oyo Road, Southwestern Nigeria

    The California bearing ratio (CBR) of some mechanically stabilised laterite sub-base soils along the Ibadan-Oyo Road, Southwestern Nigeria

    Mechanical stabilisation by mixing one lateritic soil with another is not a popular subject of research, hence this study. Samples were taken from two locations along the Ibadan-Oyo Road in Southwestern Nigeria. The study focused on determining the California bearing...
  7. Evaluation of the levels of reactive di-carbonyl compounds and polyaromatic hydrocarbons in processed Atlantic horse mackerel (<em>Trachurus trachurus</em>)

    Evaluation of the levels of reactive di-carbonyl compounds and polyaromatic hydrocarbons in processed Atlantic horse mackerel (<em>Trachurus trachurus</em>)

    Trachurus trachurus (locally called kote in Western Nigeria) is a table fish. During processing like poaching and smoking, fish come in contact with water, smoke and high temperatures, which may interfere with the nutrient contents and are potential sources of...
  8. Profile and acute mortality outcome of patients admitted with cryptococcal meningitis to an urban district hospital in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Profile and acute mortality outcome of patients admitted with cryptococcal meningitis to an urban district hospital in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Family Practice
    Background: Cryptococcal meningitis (CCM) is one of the leading causes of early mortality in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients. This study was part of a clinical audit aimed at improving care for patients with CCM at an urban district hospital...
  9. Geotechnical properties of non-crystalline coastal plain sand derived lateritic soils from Ogua, Niger Delta, Nigeria

    Geotechnical properties of non-crystalline coastal plain sand derived lateritic soils from Ogua, Niger Delta, Nigeria

    Lateritic soils derived from coastal plain sands around Ogua, Niger Delta in Nigeria, were investigated with a view to elucidate their geotechnical characteristics, which may have influence on their engineering applications. The geotechnical properties of these soils (their compaction parameters,...
