The effect of fibre on postprandial thermogenesis was evaluated in seven healthy males (age 29.6 +/- 3.6 years, BMI 24.6 +/- 0.6 kg/m2) after they had ingested three isocaloric meals with different fibre contents: low fibre (Lfb) containing 8 g. dietary fibre; glucomannan (Glc), which was Lfb supplemented with 6 g glucomannan, a pectin-like fibre; and high(More)
Clones from two Heliothis zea (Lepidoptera:Noctuidae) ovarian cell lines, BCIRL-Hz-AM1 (AM1) and BCIRL-Hz-AM3 (AM3), were generated and their ability to produce H. zea nuclear polyhedrosis virus (HzSNPV) was compared. Titers of extracellular virus (ECV) ranged from 5.5 (AM3-F9) to 44.9 x 10(5) PFU/ml (AM1-A4), with the parental cell lines AM3 and AM1(More)
In vitro culture conditions affecting the transformation efficiency from zygote to ookinete for Plasmodium gallinaceum were examined, as a step toward improving the overall efficiency of in vitro culture systems for sporogonic stages. Gametocytes from infected chickens were allowed to fertilize in vitro and the resulting zygotes were purified and cultured.(More)
Aedes albopictus mosquito cells resistant to the thymidine analog 5-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) were obtained using a single-step selection procedure. The resistant cells were characterized with respect to growth in the presence of BrdU, incorporation of [3H]uridine and [3H]thymidine, and thymidine kinase activity in crude extracts. The LC50 for TK-6 cells was(More)
Patient L.A. (f., 20 yrs), affected by bulimia and self-induced vomiting, was hospitalized because of severe malnutrition (BMI 13.1), hypopotassemia (2.8 mEq/l) and prolonged QTc interval (0.469"). Intensive care treatment aimed to normalize mineral balance mainly serum potassium, consisted of administering e.v. potassium (mg 2346/day), magnesium (mg(More)
