Leaky Gut As a Danger Signal for Autoimmune Diseases
(Frontiers Media Sa, 2017-05-23)
Emerging Developments in Microbiome and Microglia Research: Implications for Neurodevelopmental Disorders
From immunology to neuroscience, interactions between the microbiome and host are increasingly appreciated as potent drivers of health and disease. Epidemiological studies previously identified compelling correlations ...
Perineural Injection for Treatment of Root-Signature Signs Associated with Lateralized Disk Material in Five Dogs (2009-2013).
Intervertebral disk disease (IVDD) is common in dogs; cervical IVDD accounts for 13-25% of all cases. Ventral slot decompression provides access to ventral and centrally extruded or protruded disk material. However, ...
Computed Tomographic Features in a Case of Bilateral Neoplastic Cryptorchidism with Suspected Torsion in a Dog.
An 11-year-old male German Shepherd dog presented for inappetence and weight loss. Physical examination and initial bloodwork revealed palpable abdominal masses, mild non-regenerative anemia, and thrombocytopenia. Survey ...
Recombination Activating Gene-2 Regulates CpG-Mediated Interferon-α Production in Mouse Bone Marrow-Derived Plasmacytoid Dendritic Cells
Using mice that lack recombination activating gene-2 (Rag2), we have found that bone marrow-derived plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) as main producers of interferon-α (IFNα) require Rag2 for normal development. This is ...
Effects of antemortem ingestion of ethanol on insect successional patterns and development of Phormia regina (Diptera : Calliphoridae)
(Oxford University Press, 2005-05-01)
The effects of antemortem ingestion of ethanol by domestic pigs, Sus scrofa L., on postmortem insect successional patterns and the development of Phormia regina (Meigen) were studied during summer 2003 in Blacksburg, VA. ...
van der Waals and hygroscopic forces of adhesion generated by spider capture threads
(Company of Biologists Ltd., 2003-11)
Cribellar thread is the most primitive type of sticky prey capture thread found in aerial spider webs. Its outer surface is formed of thousands of fine fibrils that issue from a cribellum spinning field. The fibrils of ...
Cardiovascular and respiratory effects of lumbosacral epidural bupivacaine in isoflurane-anesthetized dogs: The effects of two volumes of 0.25% solution
The purpose of this study was to compare cardiovascular and respiratory effects of two volumes of bupivacaine 0.25% (0.2 mL kg-1—treatment BUP02—and 0.4 mL kg-1 –treatment BUP04) administered epidurally at the lumbosacral ...
Neutrophils and neutrophil serine proteases are increased in the spleens of estrogen-treated C57BL/6 mice and several strains of spontaneous lupus-prone mice
Estrogen, a natural immunomodulator, regulates the development and function of diverse immune cell types. There is now renewed attention on neutrophils and neutrophil serine proteases (NSPs) such as neutrophil elastase ...
Cell-Based Therapies for Joint Disease in Veterinary Medicine: What We Have Learned and What We Need to Know
Biological cell-based therapies for the treatment of joint disease in veterinary patients include autologous-conditioned serum, platelet-rich plasma, and expanded or nonexpanded mesenchymal stem cell products. This narrative ...
