  In vitro activity of three members of the macrolide group of antibiotics (Erythromycin, Clarithromycin and Azithromycin) and two members of the fluoroquinolone group of antibiotics (Ciprofloxacin and Ofloxacin) were assessed against Bacillus anthracis by standard tube dilution method. All the isolates showed varied susceptibility to the 2 groups of antimicrobial agents. The isolates were susceptible to Ciprofloxacin (MIC50-0.78 g mL 1) and Ofloxacin (MIC50-0.31 g mL 1) but were resistant to Erythromycin ((MIC50-25 g mL 1), Clarithromycin ((MIC50-31.25 g mL 1) and Azithromycin ((MIC50-200 g mL 1). Comparing the results of the 2 groups of antibiotic susceptibility tests, we do not recommend the use of any of the 3 macrolide antibiotics tested for prophylaxis or therapy of B. anthracis in our geographical area, except with specific result of susceptibility test on the particular isolate(s). Ofloxacin is highly recommended as a good alternative to ciprofloxacin antibiotic.

  Canarium schweinfurthii (Atile) leaves from Lamingo Area of Jos North Local Government Area of Plateau State were screened for the presence of chemically active compounds by standard methods. The results revealed the presence of the following compounds: Saponins, Tannins, Cardiac glycoside, Steroids and Flavonoid. Alkaloid and anthraquinone were not detected from the leave extract. We recommend further research work on this plant leaves for possible use as a source of raw material for industrial and medical science utilization.

  In this study, lung samples of chickens slaugtered at abattoir in Jos South, Nigeria were tested for the presence of Pasteurella multocida and other aerobic bacteria. The identity of P. multocida was proved by mouse pathogenicity test. A total of 3000 chickens were examined at post-mortem and 500 samples with pneumonia were collected. All lungs and heart blood from 15 different commercially reared chicken flocks showed respiratory disorders. Blood agar supplemented with 10% sheep blood was used for isolation of the agents. About 32 (6.5%) P. multocida were isolated and identified. In addition, mouse pathogenicity test was carried out on P. multocida suspected isolates. About 12 (75%) of Isolates were all positive. This study showed that P. multocida is not the most prevalent bacterial infection among chicken population in Jos south.
