Featured Issue: African Journal of Biomedical Research Vol.14 No.1, 2 & 3

Did you know that there are an estimated 2 million deaths a year caused by Tuberculosis? In vol.14 no.1 of the African Journal of Biomedical Research, one article "In-Vitro Susceptibility of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis to Extracts of Uvaria Afzelli Scott Elliot and Tetracera Alnifolia Willd" by Lawal et al. discusses the need for new anti-tuberculosis drugs, due to the increase of resistance of MDR- and XDR- TB strains. As a result, in this article, extracts of Uvaria afzelli root bark and Tetracera alnifolia leaves and root bark were studied to determine if they could be used to treat Tuberculosis.

Vol.14 no. 2 includes an article, "Awareness of Contraceptive Methods amongst Married Male Population of Ekpoma, Nigeria" by Akpamu et. al in which 640 married men in Ekpoma, Nigeria were surveyed to assess their knowledge of contraceptive methods. The results showed that overall, awareness of contraceptive methods was high, and that the next steps to take would be to educate the population on the impact and responsibility of parenthood.

A follow up to that article can be found in no.3, titled "Contraceptive Choice amongst Married Men in Ekpoma, Nigeria" by Iribhogbe et al. This study also surveys 640 married men in Ekpoma, Nigeria, but the objective this time around is to find out their most preferred method of contraception. The results showed that female contraception was the method that the men most preferred, but that male contraception was the method most used.
