In-vitro Effect of Some Plant Extracts and Synthetic Fungicide in the Control of Cocoyam Leaf Necrotic Fungi in Nigeria

The goal of this study was to see how various plant extracts and synthetic fungicides worked in vitro to reduce cocoyam leaf necrotic fungus in Nigeria. Farmers’ fields in two communities in Anambra State’s Ekwulobia local government area yielded cocoyam leaves of two tropical crops: taro (old cocoyam, Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott) and blue or…

The Potential of Combinatorial Small Molecules as Effective Breast Cancer Treatments: A Clinical Approach

The capacity of breast cancer cells to develop resistance to chemotherapeutic medications, as well as off-target cytotoxicity of these drugs on normal cells, are major roadblocks in current breast cancer therapy efficacy, resulting in debilitating side effects. The metabolism of cancer cells differs significantly from that of normal cells during carcinogenesis, as cancer cells have…
