Pathogen loads, clearance and plasma cortisol response in channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus (Rafinesque), following challenge with Edwardsiella ictaluri Enteric septicaemia of catfish (ESC), caused by the Gram-negative bacterium Edwardsiella ictaluri (Hawke 1979), is the most prevalent disease affecting farm-raised catfish in the southeastern United(More)
Periods of stress are often associated with disease outbreaks in cultured fish, and stress is often characterized by the secretion of cortisol. Although stress and cortisol secretion are highly correlated in fish, the role of cortisol in affecting channel catfish (Ictalurus punctatus) pathogen susceptibility is unclear. The effects of short-term stress and(More)
The rapid rise in the use of collaborative writing applications (eg, wikis, Google Documents, and Google Knol) has created the need for a systematic synthesis of the evidence of their impact as knowledge translation (KT) tools in the health care sector and for an inventory of the factors that affect their use. While researchers have conducted systematic(More)
The ghrelin peptide and cDNA encoding precursor protein were isolated from the stomach of a channel catWsh, Ictalurus puncta-tus. CatWsh ghrelin is a 22-amino acid peptide with a sequence of GSSFLSPTQKPQNRGDRKPPRV. The third serine residue has been modiWed by n-decanoic acid and unsaturated fatty acids; however, an octanoylated form could not be identiWed.(More)
BACKGROUND Wikis are knowledge translation tools that could help health professionals implement best practices in acute care. Little is known about the factors influencing professionals' use of wikis. OBJECTIVES To identify and compare the beliefs of emergency physicians (EPs) and allied health professionals (AHPs) about using a wiki-based reminder that(More)
BACKGROUND Collaborative writing applications (eg, wikis and Google Documents) hold the potential to improve the use of evidence in both public health and health care. The rapid rise in their use has created the need for a systematic synthesis of the evidence of their impact as knowledge translation (KT) tools in the health care sector and for an inventory(More)
OBJECTIVE This study investigated the question-behaviour effect of measuring intention in the interrogative or declarative form combined or not with a measure of moral norm. DESIGN A sample of 762 participants was randomised according to a 2 × 2 factorial design. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Cognitions were assessed at the baseline, and physical activity(More)

OBJECTIVES Physical activity is a key factor for healthy ageing and obesity management. The aim of this study was to test the effect of implementation intentions (IIs) on physical activity and body weight among inactive obese older adults. DESIGN AND MEASURES At baseline, 101 obese (classes I and II) older adults were randomised to an experimental or a(More)
