Peripheral administration of motilin has been found to stimulate feeding behavior in rats. Since motilin immunoreactivity has been found in discrete brain sites, we tested the effect of motilin administered intracerebroventricularly on feeding in rats. Injection of 1 microgram of motilin significantly increased food consumption at 2 hours, 22 hours, and at(More)
The objective of this study was to measure the effect of substituting different levels of shrimp meal (SM) for soybean meal (SBM) in broiler diets. In Experiment 1, 0, 10, 20, 30, and 40% of the crude protein contributed by the SBM in broiler diets was substituted by crude protein from SM. In Experiment 2, 0, 60, 80, and 100% of the crude protein(More)

Pancreatitis has been noted to be a potential complication in 2% to 16% of patients undergoing treatment with L-asparaginase for a variety of pediatric neoplasms, but rarely has surgical intervention been necessary. The authors present two fulminant cases of L-asparaginase-induced pancreatitis and review the current literature. The first patient is a(More)

A case is presented in which a patient with this lesion was treated with excision of the tumor rather than hysterectomy. Two years later, she developed a recurrence of the lesion, which was again treated with wide local excision. A(More)
UNLABELLED Severe acute ulcerative colitis unresponsive to medical management is characterized by multiple associated risk factors including anemia, hypoproteinemia, and high steroid requirements when urgent surgery is required. Current surgical options include use of primary ileal pouch-anal anastomosis (IPAA) vs. historic trends favoring colectomy with(More)
