COMMIPHORA; DAWA INAYOFANYIWA UTAFITI SUA NA INAYOLETA MATUMAINI DHIDI YA VIDONDA SUGU

Wataalamu wa afya katika Chuo Kikuu cha Sokoine cha Kilimo wanafanya utafiti wa dawa ya asili inayotokana na mti wa Commiphora (Commiphora swynnertonii)

Utafiti huo ambao unaongozwa na Dr Gaymary Bakari (PhD) na Dr Shaban Mshamu umekuwa ukitoa matokeo yanayoleta matumaini juu ya ubora wa dawa hiyo dhidi ya vidonda sugu na matatizo mengine ya ngozi.

Mti wa Commiphora umekuwa ukitumika kama chanzo cha dawa kwa matatizo mbalimbali ya binadamu na wanyama na jamii tofauti nchini hasa wamasai.

Kufanyika utafiti katika maabara za kisasa za idara (Department of Physiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology), kunafungua ukurasa mpya na muhimu unaoleta matumaini makubwa kwa wagonjwa na wataalamu wa afya nchini

Kwa sasa utafiti wa dawa hii upo katika hatua mbalimbali za majaribio na bidhaa tofauti zimeandaliwa zikiwa na kiambata cha Commiphora na zinazotumika kama dawa. Baadhi ya bidhaa zipo katika mfumo wa lotion, sprays, cream, sabuni na kadhalika.

Matumizi ya mti wa commiphora ambao huitwa majina tofauti na jamii tofauti nchini na nje ya nchi ni ya muda mrefu. Ni mojawapo ya miti inayoaminika kuwa na aina tofauti za viambata zinazoweza kutibu magonjwa mbalimbali kwa binadamu na mifugo

Ni matumaini ya idara na chuo kwa ujumla kwamba matokeo ya utafiti huu yatainufaisha jamii katika kupambana na magonjwa, hasa katika kipindi hiki baada ya kuongezeka kwa usugu wa vimelea dhidi ya dawa nyingi za viwandani.

Dr Frida, who is a lecturer in Pharmacology at the department, is a beneficiary in the Faculty Exchange Program for the 2019 round.

 Frida receives certificate

She spent about 14 weeks in USA at the College of Veterinary Medicine of the ISU, the nation's most student-centred public research university. Iowa State University of Science and Technology (Iowa State) is a public land-grant and space-grant research university in Ames, Iowa.

Dr Frida, together with other activities, spent most of her time in Microbiology Laboratory of the ISU, under close supervision of Dr Paul Plummer. She was involved in an intensive project on screening of antimicrobial resistance and Campylobacter spp obtained in faecal samples from a local zoo.

In additional to the laboratory work, she attended lectures and tutorials of Pharmacology and Toxicology to improve her teaching capacity.

She also attended lectures on Teaching and learning in Veterinary Medical Education and Journal sessions.

In improving her writing skills, she attended seminars on manuscript writing and succeeded to write and submit a grant application proposal as a result.

The College of Veterinary Medicine is proud of the successful participation of Dr Frida to the exchange from the program, and is looking forward to benefit from her improved capacities as has been for the former beneficiaries of the same program. In previous years, a number of College faculties have attended the same program including Dr Erick Komba, Dr Athumani Lupindu, Dr Aloyce Bunyaga and Dr John Julius.
