The prevalence of agglutinins to Coxiella burnetii and Brucella spp, particularly Brucella canis, was determined in 269 wild animals (14 species) in southern Texas. Serologic evidence of coxiellosis and brucellosis, including B canis infection, was shown for coyotes, raccoons, opossums, badgers, jackrabbits, and feral hogs. Using the microagglutination(More)
The inheritance of yellow berry, a grain disorder in durum and bread wheats, was studied in six intervarietal crosses in bread wheat. The trait was found to be controlled by either two or three dominant genes. Monosomic analysis using ‘Chinese Spring’ monosomic series showed the presence of two major dominant genes on chromosomes 1A and 7A, and four(More)
BACKGROUND Online drug information compendia (ODIC) are valuable tools that health care professionals (HCPs) and consumers use to educate themselves on pharmaceutical products. Research suggests that these resources, although informative and easily accessible, may contain misinformation, posing risk for product misuse and patient harm. OBJECTIVE Evaluate(More)
A liquid antibody microculture plaque assay and the variables that govern its effectiveness are described. The assay is based on the principle that low concentrations of homologous antibody can inhibit secondary plaque formation without inhibiting formation of primary plaques. Thus, clear plaques that followed a linear dose response were produced. The assay(More)
The prevalence of Brucella canis agglutinins was determined in 170 cats (114 from animal shelters in California and 56 from an animal hospital in Texas). Seropositive reactions in the cats from animal shelters were 5.3, 11.4, and 0%, respectively, the the rapid slide agglutination test, salt 2-mercaptoethanol tube agglutination test, salt 2-mercaptoethanol(More)
OBJECTIVE Oxycodone DETERx® is an extended-release (ER), microsphere-in-capsule abuse-deterrent-formulation designed to retain its extended-release properties following tampering or misuse (e.g., chewing, crushing). This study assessed the safety and pharmacokinetics of orally administered intact and crushed Oxycodone DETERx® capsules compared with intact(More)
BACKGROUND Healthcare professionals and consumers refer to online drug-information compendia (eg, Epocrates and WebMD) to learn about prescription medications, including opioid analgesics. With the significant risks associated with opioids, including abuse, misuse, and addiction, any of which can result in life-threatening overdose, it is important for(More)
