Editorial Preface to the Inaugural Issue

Welcome to the website of The Journal of Biomedical Research & Clinical Practice (JBRCP). JBRCP is published by The Benue State University Teaching Hospital, Makurdi, chapter of The Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria (MDCAN).

I thank and congratulate, on behalf of the editorial board, all the authors whose manuscripts were found suitable for publication in the maiden edition of our journal. This was after going through painstakingly and a rigorous review process by our editors and assessors.  We most sincerely thank all our reviewers and colleagues across the globe for the interests shown in the journal and for the contributions which have shaped and re-shaped the quality of our articles.  

In this Maiden Edition of our journal entitled "Eyeball Biometrics On Computed Tomography In Makurdi", the author has established accurate eye ball dimensions in normal individuals using high resolution mechanisms for proper comparisons and interpretation of eye lesions. There is also a call to intensify on TB control and prevention among the IDPs in IDP camps in the country. Also in this edition we have interesting articles on: Orbito-ocular traumas, Klippel-Feil syndrome, and Emergency obstetric care. These & other interesting research topics covered in this issue have been listed below for our readers, researchers and academics.
