  The antimicrobial properties of various extract of Zingiber officinale (ginger) against Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa that are common causes of gastrointestinal track infection were investigated using the Agar and tube diffusion method. The results obtained revealed that etharolic extract of ginger gave the widest zone of inhibition against one out of the two test organisms at the concentration of 20 mg mL-1. However, Pseudomonas aeruginosa was more sensitive to the extract. It was also observed that the solvent of extraction and its varying concentrations affected the sensitivity of the two test organisms to the plant extract showing that ginger has antimicrobial activities on the test organisms due to its inhibitory effect, thus confirming its use in folk medicine.

  The CD4 counts of HIV positive individuals with hepatitis B surface antigen was a factor used to determine the immune status among infected individuals in Benue state. Total 966 males infected with HIV, 15 (1.55%) were positive for HbsAg+ with CD4 counts <335 cell μL‾1 and in the female category, 10 (0.95%) of 1042 were positive for HbsAg+ with the CD4+ counts <420 at the initial CD4 cells counts. According to age, individuals aged between 30 and 39 years were positive for HbsAg+ with their CD4 counts ≤ 335 cell μL‾1. The least in terms of HbsAg+ carriage (0.34%) were those ≥ 50 years whose CD4 read <224 cell μL‾1. After an interval of 6 months, the CD4 level declined to <100 cell μL‾1. However, there was a significant relationship in the degree of infection among sexes (Z = 0.40<±1.96). HbsAg+ carriage rate was dependent on age (x2 = 7.82<0.05).
