BACKGROUND & AIMS We evaluated CDP571, a humanized antibody to tumor necrosis factor, for the treatment of active Crohn's disease. METHODS One hundred sixty-nine patients with moderate-to-severe Crohn's disease were enrolled in a 24-week placebo-controlled trial. Patients were initially randomized to a single dose of 10 or 20 mg/kg CDP571 or placebo to(More)
We used a split-plot design of five diets: control (corn-soy) with 3.8% Ca, 10% flaxseed with 3.8% Ca, 10% flaxseed with 4.5% Ca, 10% flaxseed with 3.8% Ca and 22,000 IU vitamin D3/kg, and 10% flaxseed with 4.5% Ca and 22,000 IU vitamin D3/kg, and two strains of birds, DeKalb Delta (DD) and Hy-Line W-36 (HL), to evaluate long-term effects of flaxseed(More)
Because recombinant interleukin 2 (rIL-2) and recombinant alpha-interferon (rIFN-alpha) exhibit synergistic antitumor activity in C3HMT1820 T-cell lymphoma and B16 melanoma tumor systems, we have performed a Phase I study of this combination in 55 patients with advanced malignancies for whom no standard therapy exists. Successive groups of greater than or(More)
Dekalb Delta hens were randomly assigned to one of eight dietary treatment groups. Two intakes of lysine (860 and 959 mg/hen per day) and 4 intakes of TSAA (635, 689, 811, 877 mg/hen per day) were combined in a 2 x 4 factorial treatment arrangement and fed from 20 to 43 wks of age. A phase feeding regimen was implemented at 43 wk with lysine intake lowered(More)
A study was carried out to investigate the effects of a drug-free feeding program on broiler performance and intestinal morphology. Chicks vaccinated against coccidia were randomly assigned to 4 dietary treatments: 1) negative control (NC), basal diet; 2) positive control (PC), diet 1 + Lincomycin; 3) program 1 (PG1); diet 1 + Bio-Mos, Vegpro, MTB-100, Acid(More)
A 3 x 3 treatment arrangement varying in dietary protein and TSAA:Lys was used to evaluate the effect of low-protein diets fed to Hy-Line W-98 laying hens. Phase I was 20 to 43 wk of age with 18.9, 17.0, and 14.4 g of protein/hen per day and 0.97, 0.85, and 0.82 TSAA:Lys, whereas phase II was 44 to 63 wk of age with 16.3, 14.6, and 13.8 g of protein/hen per(More)
In three experiments the effects of prophylactic or therapeutic dietary inclusion of capsaicin, the pungent component of peppers, were evaluated as a nonantibiotic alternative for reduction of Salmonella in broiler chickens through culture and morphologic assessment of cecal tissue. Expt. 1 evaluated the effects of 0 or 10 ppm purified capsaicin (CAP) in(More)
A study was designed to determine the effects of enzyme supplementation on poults fed commercially based diets that included corn, soybean meal, and ground wheat with meat and bone meal (0 to 21 d) or Pro-Pak (22 to 56 d). Day-old turkey poults (n = 3,850) were divided into 35 pens and fed 1 of 5 dietary treatments for 56 d. Treatments were a positive(More)
An experiment was conducted to evaluate the effects of dietary enzymes on performance, tibia ash, and intestinal goblet cells of broilers administered a live coccidia oocyst vaccine (Coccivac B, Schering Plough, Kenilworth, NJ). Cobb 500 straight-run broilers were obtained and one-half of the chicks were sprayed with the live coccidia oocyst vaccine. Chicks(More)
