Evaluation of Total White Blood Cells and Cluster of Differentiation 4 Cells among Post-Menopausal Women in Elele, Nigeria

This study assessed total white blood cells and CD4 cell counts among
post-menopausal women in Elele, River state, Nigeria. The findings of this study
showed that after menopause, some immune system related parameters such as
total white blood cells and CD4 cell counts decrease. This is evident in the significant reduction (P < 0.001) in white blood cells and CD4 cell counts among post-menopausal women compared to young adults in reproductive age. The reduction in CD4 cells and total white blood cells may put women that have attained menopause at risk of multiple infections and other associated health conditions. Hence, at menopause, women should take caution in changes in their body physiology and chemistry to reduce the occurrence of avoidable infections.

Evaluation of Some Haematological Parameters Among Helicobacter pylori infected students in a Nigerian tertiary educational institution

This study assessed erythrocyte sedimentation rate, packed
cell volume and haemoglobin concentration among H. pylori
infected patients in Elele, River state, Nigeria. The findings of
this study showed that H. pylori infection leads to a slight
decline in packed cell volume and hemoglobin concentration
and an increase in erythrocyte sedimentation rate. In all
cases, there was significant variation (P<0.05) between the test subjects and control. The variations in the parameters compared to the control suggest possible inflammation due to H. pylori bacterium. Therefore, caution should be exercised by H. pylori infected patients in managing their health status so as to avoid adverse health conditions. . Therefore, proper diet must be maintained by the patients to avoid medical complications associated with anemia. Proper and effective management of the infection must be maintained.
