Twenty Polypay-sired ewes (Group P) and 14 Suffolk ewes (Group S) were bled at 48-h intervals for 10 d beginning on April 6, 1989, and the serum was assayed for progesterone to determine which ewes were anestrous; 9/20 Group P ewes were anestrous, compared with 14/14 Group S ewes (P less than .001). Catheters were placed into the jugular vein of anestrous(More)
OBJECTIVE To estimate risk factors associated with long-term outcome (i.e., 1-year survival) in patients with Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB). METHODS AND MATERIALS This was a retrospective study in which the microbiological laboratory data records of patients admitted to the University Hospital of Regensburg between January 2004 and June 2005 were(More)
BACKGROUND We previously reported the results of a phase II study for patients with newly diagnosed primary central nervous system lymphoma treated with autologous peripheral blood stem-cell transplantation (aPBSCT) and response-adapted whole-brain radiotherapy (WBRT). Now, we update the initial results. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1999 to 2004, 23 patients(More)
This study compares dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) measurements of the hip and spine with quantitative ultrasound (QUS) parameters measured simultaneously at the calcaneal and phalangeal bone in 174 patients with and without vertebral fractures. The aim of this study was to compare the ability of DXA and QUS measurements to discriminate patients with and(More)
Forty crossbred wethers (BW = 28.7 kg) were used to evaluate the effects on LM lipid composition of diets containing high and low levels of vitamin A. Four treatments arranged as a 2 x 2 factorial with a completely random design were investigated: backgrounding (BG) and finishing (FN) with no supplemental vitamin A (LL); BG with no supplemental vitamin A(More)
In two separate 2 x 2 factorial arrangements, 69 male, crossbred lambs were allotted randomly to the following treatments: 1) nonimplanted (NI) rams, 2) implanted (I) rams, 3) NI wethers, and 4) I wethers. In Trial 1, 36 lambs were allotted to treatment groups at birth (n = 9) and I lambs were implanted with 12 mg of zeranol between 1 and 3 d of age and(More)
Thirty-five zeranol-implanted (I) and nonimplanted (NI) ram and wether lambs representing four treatments (implanted rams [IR], nonimplanted rams [NIR], implanted wethers [IW], and nonimplanted wethers [NIW]) were evaluated for meat palatability and muscle collagen characteristics. Rib (longissimus muscle, LM) chops from I lambs were juicier (P less than(More)
The aim of this study is to define the significance of hyponatremia as a marker of anastomotic leakage after colorectal surgery. All anastomoses in colorectal surgery performed at a single institution between July 2007 and July 2012 (n = 1,106) were retrospectively identified. Serum sodium levels and leukocyte values measured when an anastomotic leak was(More)
BACKGROUND Hyper- and hyponatremia occur frequently in extremely preterm infants. Our purpose was to investigate plasma sodium (P-Na) concentrations, the incidence of hyper- and hyponatremia, and the impact of possible predisposing factors in extremely preterm infants. METHODS In this observational study, we analyzed data from the EXtremely PREterm (< 27(More)
