FISH SPECIES COMPOSITION AND DISTRIBUTION IN THE ACID SULPHATE SOIL ECOLOGICAL ZONE IN HOA AN, HAU GIANG PROVINCE, VIET NAM
Journal ID : ALS-18-08-2021-5614; Total View : 1670; Author : Le Thi Phuong Mai, Chau Quoc Mong, Ly Van Bi, Phan Khai Khanh, Vo Hong Dung, To Cong Tam, Tran Nguyen Hai Nam, Duong Van Ni,
Abstract : The study aims to provide data on the fish species composition and distribution in different types of water bodies in the ecological zone of the acid sulphate soil in Hoa An commune, Phung Hiep district, Hau Giang province, Viet Nam. The study was carried out from March 2020 to February 2021. The composition of fish species was collected directly by different types of fishing gears on 4 types of waterbodies of melaleuca forest, eleocharis grassy plain, rice field and canals periodically once a month. After collecting fish samples, they were identified based on basic morphological criteria according to taxonomic documents of authors such as [1- 3], fishbase [4]. The species composition was arranged according to the taxonomy of Eschmeyer [5]. Research results had recorded 28 fish species belonging to 22 genera, 18 families and 10 orders distributed in the ecological zone of acid sulphate soils in Hoa An. The Anabantiformes had the highest number of species with 10 species (35.7%), Siluriformes with 6 species (21.4%), Cypriniformes with 4 speicies (14.3%), the remaining orders with a small number of species, only 1-2 species. The fish species composition varied between types of water bodies, eleocharis grassy plain and melaleuca forest had lower species composition than that of rice field and canals, and fish species composition in dry season were higher than in flood. A number of fish species were recorded regularly during the sampling process, mainly black fish such as Channa striata, Anabas tesudineus, Clarias microcephalus, Monoterus albus, Trichopodus tritropterus, Trichopsis vittata, Betta sp. (cf. mahachaiensis).

Evolution Of Glycated Hemoglobin In A Sample Of Patients Using Medicinal Plants For The Treatment Of Type 2 Diabetes In A Moroccan Urban Health Center: An Uncontrolled Longitudinal Study
Journal ID : ALS-10-08-2021-5610; Total View : 755; Author : Mabchour Insaf, Raghay Kawtar, Chebabe Milouda, Reguragui Samira, Chafik Kaoutar, Lerhlibi Hajar, Mohamed Fadli,
Abstract : The hypoglycemic effect of many of the so-called medicinal plants has been approved in many animal models. However, several clinical trials are still underway to test the effect and efficacy of plant extracts on blood sugar control. This study aims to confirm the hypoglycemic effect of ten traditional plants on glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) and to question the use of these plants in the control of diabetes and their safety in patients with type 2 diabetes. This is an uncontrolled longitudinal study of 22 patients with type 2 diabetes attending the Quilma Health Center (Morocco). These participants agreed after their consent to proceed with the examination of the evolution of their HbA1centre on October 1, 2015, and June 30, 2016, before and after the usual use of medicinal plants. The HbA1c assays were carried out using a hemoglobinometer (MQ 2000 PT / HPLC) in the health center. A semi-directive questionnaire was administered to the patients in order to identify the characteristics of our sample and to examine the medicinal plants used, their mode of use as well as their mode of preparation. The results show that of the ten plants studied, and considered in the literature as hypoglycemic, only three plants showed this effect. Namely Foeniculum vulgare Gaertn (36.3%) Trigonella foenum-graecum (13.3%), and Lupinus albus. (13.85%), For the seven other plants which did not show a hypoglycaemic effect, the cause of the absence of their hypoglycaemic effect could be due to unsuitable conditions of the use of the plant as a natural hypoglycaemic substance. in particular, the choice of the part of the plant used, the stage and season of its picking, its method of preparation, its dose, and its frequency of use. Thus, for each known to have hypoglycaemic power, it is, therefore, useful to seek the optimal conditions for its use.
