A pool of scrapie-infected sheep brains was used to spike mixtures of porcine bone and intestine. These were processed in pilot-scale facsimiles of 12 rendering procedures that were in use within the European Union in 1991, and three that were not. Meat and bone meal, and tallow, were produced from the rendered tissues. Suspensions of all the meat and bone(More)
The clinical signs, pathology and breeding data of two cases of cardiomyopathy of an unusual kind in adult Holstein Friesian cattle in Britain are reported and compared with those in similar entities in Switzerland, Japan and Canada. The principal and primary lesions affect the heart and these produce secondary changes, particularly in the liver, and result(More)
A series of related studies were designed to investigate and quantify the degree of fluid exchange between the lung segment and the interstitium or pulmonary circulation that occurred during a standardized bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL). In 5 subjects undergoing a 3 x 60 ml BAL, the dilution of introduced fluid was calculated at approximately 25% using both(More)
BACKGROUND Standardised expression of results of bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) is problematical in the absence of a validated "denominator" of epithelial lining fluid dilution. The suitability of albumin in BAL fluid has been investigated in groups of clinically stable asthmatic and control subjects. METHODS Absolute levels of albumin in BAL fluid were(More)
We have measured albumin and total protein concentrations over the first eight weeks of life in a group of preterm babies. The albumin concentration in newborn babies rose from about 20 g/l in 28 weeks gestation babies to about 30 g/l in term babies. The total protein concentration in newborn babies rose from about 40 g/l in 28 week gestation babies to(More)
Following the report that captopril in a dose of 1 mg/kg per day produced a significant fall in urinary cystine excretion in children with cystinuria, which was predicted to be of therapeutic value [1], we treated five children aged 3-15 years for a month. Blood pressure recording was performed twice daily by the parents and was stable throughout. Three(More)
