Materials and Methods:
Should include sources of special chemicals kits, animals, case material and all the protocols and actual methods employed to enable the other researchers to repeat/redo the experimental works if necessary. Analytical, therapeutic/surgical methods if not in common use require brief descriptions.
This section should have presentations in tables and illustrations beside text. The result should summarize only important observations based on own work rather than the observations of other workers. There should not be repetition in the text of all the data in the tables/graphs/illustrations.
Three sets of illustration(s) are required to be submitted along with the manuscripts. Each table should be typed on a separate sheet (within 7½” x 4½” space) and given a number and a caption besides explaining in footnotes. Tables in the text should be in consecutive order.

The numbers should be marked by an arrow. Legends should be typed on a separate sheet. Each should be brief but sufficiently descriptive to be complete by itself. The reverse side of each figure or table must have an erasable pencil notation that identifies the figure or table.
The section should emphasize the new and important aspects of the study and valid conclusions. Implications limitation of the findings if related to observations made in the study/experiment may be highlighted briefly.
Which the authors wish to make may appear at the end of the paper and before the reference list/bibliography.
