Mice carrying mutations at the W locus located on chromosome 5 are characterized by severe macrocytic anaemia, lack of hair pigmentation and sterility. Mutations at this locus appear to affect the proliferation and/or migration of cells during early embryogenesis and result in an intrinsic defect in the haematopoietic stem cell hierarchy. An understanding(More)
Familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (FIBGC) is a rare condition and its pathophysiology has not so far been elucidated. We report the results of a clinical study in two patients of a family affected with FIBGC. Brain imaging with 18-FDG-PET was performed in one. Psychiatric and cognitive troubles were the main clinical symptoms. Basal ganglia(More)
Measurements of radiated thermal output are claimed to reflect the metabolic efficiency of mammals. This is important in food-producing animals because a measure of metabolic efficiency may translate to desirable characteristics, such as growth efficiency or residual feed intake, and permit the grouping of animals by metabolic characteristics that can be(More)
An automated, non-invasive system for monitoring of thermoregulation has the potential to mitigate swine diseases through earlier detection. Measurement of radiated temperature of groups of animals by infrared thermography (IRT) is an essential component of such a system. This study reports on the feasibility of monitoring the radiated temperature of groups(More)
