CONTEXT The lipodystrophies (LD) are characterized by metabolic abnormalities (insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, and diabetes) and a polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) phenotype. Therapeutic administration of leptin improves insulin sensitivity and the metabolic features. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to investigate whether the PCOS(More)
A series of trials was conducted to determine if adding a Lactobacillus fermentation product (LAC) to the feed of laying hens would improve their production performance. Feeding a liquid, nonviable LAC product to either cage or floor housed laying hens did not improve hen-day egg production, feed efficiency, nor egg size during a 48 week experimental(More)
CONTEXT An end of fast insulin ≥ 3 μIU/mL and a proinsulin concentration ≥ 5 pmol/L have been suggested as useful cutoffs for the diagnosis of insulinoma. OBJECTIVE The main objective was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of an end of fast insulin concentration ≥ 3 μIU/mL and an end of fast proinsulin concentration ≥ 5 pmol/L. DESIGN The design was(More)
Three experiments were conducted to investigate the influence of toe-clipping and bird density on laying hen performance. Toe-clipping was done on day-old chicks by removal of the digital claws from the front toes. Toe-clipped (TC) and intact (IN) pullets were assigned randomly to laying cages (Experiments 1 and 2, 19 weeks of age) or housed in similar body(More)
The existing biobanks of remnant tissue from clinically indicated kidney biopsies are attractive potential reservoirs for quantification of clinically relevant human tissue proteins by quantitative proteomics. However, a significant caveat of this strategy is that the tissues are often preserved in optimal cutting temperature (OCT) medium. Although OCT is(More)
Three trials were conducted to determine if the age at start of limited feeding or the amount of time laying hens were given to consume feed could be used to reduce feed intake without affecting egg weight (EW) or egg production. The age at start of limiting feed did not affect hen-day egg production (HDEP) or EW in any trial. In Trial 2, a significant(More)
The pathways implicated in diabetic kidney disease (DKD) are largely derived from animal models. To examine if alterations in renin-angiotensin system (RAS) in humans are concordant with those in rodent models, we measured concentration of angiotensinogen (AOG), cathepsin D (CTSD), angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), and ACE2 and enzymatic activities of(More)
Data from a previously reported study investigating the interaction of toe-clipping and stocking density on laying-hen performance were subjected to economic analyses to determine optimal profit-producing combinations of these two management practices. In three separate trials, toe-clipped (TC) and intact (IN) pullets were examined at caging densities of(More)
