Vinegar and aluminium sulphate solution (Stingose) gave a significant reduction in pain 15 minutes after application when compared with the control sites which were treated with sea water. The application of methylated spirits(More)
Free energies of oxygen-linked subunit assembly and cooperative interaction have been determined for 34 molecular species of human hemoglobin, which differ by amino acid alterations as a result of mutation or chemical modification at specific sites. These studies required the development of extensions to our earlier methodology. In combination with previous(More)
The gut mucosal system must fulfil conflicting roles in suppressing immune responses against orally fed antigens (tolerance) while still retaining the ability to respond to potential enteric pathogens. It must also, to a large degree, not mount an immune response against commensal enteric bacteria and the administration of large numbers of probiotic(More)
In a vaccine trial, pigs were challenged intradermally with eight E. rhusiopathiae strains of serovars 1a, 1b or 2 given concurrently. The strains were derived from six herds affected with vaccine breakdowns in 1997-1999, one herd without vaccine breakdown and a serovar 2 reference strain. Responses to two commercial bacterins (one implicated in the vaccine(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the sensitivity and specificity of six serological enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) based on serovar-independent antigens of Actinobacillus pleuropneumoniae (App) and investigate cross-reactivity in disease-free pigs challenged with Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae and Pasteurella multocida. DESIGN Five experimental pig trials(More)
