  The effect of Nono (a Nigerian fermented milk) on diabetic situation in rats, induced by intraperitonial injection of alloxan monohydrate is reported. Nono administration for 4 weeks lowered the raised plasma glucose concentration of diabetic rats; restoring it to the non diabetic rat level. The low tissue protein and raised plasma protein concentrations; hyperlipidemia; and hypercholesterolemia consequential on diabetic induction were reversed to the normal level by the Nono administration. The reversals of these effects of diabetes may be due to the lowering of the plasma glucose concentration by Nono or direct activity of either the bacteria or milk components of Nono on these substances. The results indicate that consumption of Nono produced by wild strain lactic acid bacteria may be helpful in the management of diabetes.

  The mycoflora of the soil of some commercial ventures such as cassava farm, cattle ranch, cocoa farm and sawmill was investigated. Aspergillus sp., Penicillium sp. were isolated from cassava farm and cattle ranch, while Absidia sp., Curvularia sp., Fusarium sp., Neurospora sp. and Rhizopus stolonifer were isolated from the cocoa and sawmill soils. Sawmill soil recorded the highest moisture and organic matter contents. The comparatively high pH value of the cattle ranch soil was attributed to large volume of urine and faeces of the cattle in the ranch. Calcium and potassium ions were the most prominent mineral nutrients especially in the cocoa farm and sawmill soils. Only Fusarium sp. was highly encouraged when cultured on soil extracts from the cassava farm, cocoa farm and sawmill. Spore germination, initiation of germ tubes and elongation of hyphae of Aspergillus niger and Curvularia sp. were adversely affected in all the soil extracts. However, the sawmill soil encouraged the production of an appreciable mycelia growth in species of Fusarium, Neurospora and Penicillium.
