The progress of age-related hearing loss in three 31-yr-old, two 24-yr-old, and two 9-yr-old rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) was repeatedly examined over a period of 3 yr. Pure-tone audiograms for seven frequencies, .125, .500, 2.000, 4.000, 16.000, 22.667, and 32.000 kHz, were obtained through the use of the psychophysical tracking method. Analysis(More)
A recent cross-sectional study of HTs in Salt Lake City and Paris has reported a significant association of a T704-->C (Met235-->Thr) variant in exon 2 of the angiotensinogen gene (AGT) with essential hypertension (HT). The present study used a new, direct PCR technique to detect this variant in 92 Caucasians with severe hypertension (HT) and two HT parents(More)
Activity budgets of captive ocelots (Leopardus pardalis) were assessed from over 547h of observational data obtained from six ocelots; two females at the Dallas Zoo (Dallas, TX), two females at the Caldwell Zoo (Tyler, TX) and a male and female at the Fossil Rim Wildlife Center (Glen Rose, TX). Data were examined for the percentage of active behaviors(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize aminoaciduria and plasma amino acid concentrations in dogs with hepatocutaneous syndrome (HCS). ANIMALS 20 client-owned dogs of various breeds and ages. PROCEDURES HCS was definitively diagnosed on the basis of liver biopsy specimens (n = 12), gross and histologic appearance of skin lesions (4), and examination of skin and liver(More)
1. In severe, familial hypertension, we have reported that the proportion of patients homozygous for the deletion allele of an insertion/deletion polymorphism of the angiotensin I-converting enzyme gene is markedly decreased in older age groups, suggesting that this genotype is associated with increased risk of premature death. The aim of the present study(More)
