Government should fund plasma-derived immunoglobulin and vaccination research.

At the 5th lecture series by Edo State University titled “Exposition of Systemic Response to Foreign Agents for Preventive Health Care: A Source of Potent Information for Human Longevity,” which was chaired by Prof. Emmanuel Aluyor, the Vice Chancellor of the university, A Professor of Chemical Pathology and Immunology, Prof. Matthew Folaranmi Olaniyan who is also the institution Dean of Postgraduate Studies at Uzairue has during his delivery called on the federal government to invest more funds into immunological research so that plasma-derived immunoglobulins and vaccinations can be developed.

Prof. Olaniyan proposed constructing one primary health research lab and one regional referencing laboratory within each of the country’s 774 areas of local government. These laboratories would be responsible for basic healthcare diagnostics. Infections, injuries, insults, different kinds of diseases, as well as potential complications, all of which, according to the Dean, are primarily influenced by environmental variables and may be avoided when there is reliable knowledge to serve as a guideline. Therefore, it can be prevented by preventive healthcare practices.

An agency for herbal practices should be established by the government.

In order to strengthen preventative medical practices in Nigeria, the government should set up an agency for herbal therapies with specialist medical laboratories to certify the effectiveness of herbal remedies and any potential side effects. Upgrading the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria’s in-vitro diagnostic center to increase the output of laboratory components for diagnostic procedures and research should also be a priority for the federal government, which should place a greater emphasis on preventative healthcare for infectious diseases through basic laboratory screening.

He uncovered health enhancing immunological as well as non-immunological reactions during his research, including anti-hypertensive, weight loss, hypolipidemia/hypocholesterolemia, anti-diabetic, antimicrobial, toxic reversal, and recognition of microbial antibody and antigen for early diagnosis. Evidence suggests that donating blood improves donor health in several ways, including lowering blood viscosity and altering lipid profile, which serves as a valid parameter for gauging the coronary heart disease risk, as he explains in Systemic response to donating blood for primary preventative care of hyperlipidemia.

With this discovery, Humans could live up to and beyond 120 years – Olaniyan.

Furthermore, Olaniyan stated that, as a result of his study pursuits, he was able to disclose the systemic response towards foreign agents for preventive care as a valuable source of knowledge for humans to live up to and beyond 120 years. The Chemical Pathology and Immunology Professor has stated that his research areas are in the immunological and non-immunological responses of the various body systems to intrusions and that he hopes to make the experimental data obtained through this research open and available to everyone in the globe in order to increase human life span.

To prevent chronic and acute diseases, enhance healthy living, and extend life, Prof. Olaniyan advised people to consume many suitable nutritious plant-based foods with anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. He also suggested boosting immunity through a plant-based diet or using plant extracts that are good for health to avoid infection and contagious diseases. People must also make it a habit to regularly visit a medical laboratory for preventive healthcare to promote longevity. They should also review the duration of medical laboratory scientist learning as well as the training program so that a more practical approach to resolving newly emerging and re-occurring health issues.

Scientist aims to explore factors that influence breast cancer.

Moreover, the professor added that cancer of the breast is the most prevalent form of cancer among women and constitutes one of the main causes of death. He further explained that accumulating evidence shows the significance of lipids in the development of the disease, and this is becoming a big concern for modern science and medical interest to explore further changes in lipid profiles and hormone-sensitive factors which influence genes amongst women with breast cancer in Nigeria.

One of the problems we are confronted with in this country is the lack of faith that our government in the development of science and technology through our tertiary institutions. If government could fund most researches and discoveries we would have become a model to other countries and also generate revenue for the country.

Donating blood has been shown to have numerous health benefits for the donor, including a reduction in blood viscosity and an adjustment to lipid profile, which is a reliable indicator of the donor’s risk for coronary heart disease.
