Passive immunization with an antibody directed against the N terminus of amyloid beta (Abeta) has recently been reported to exacerbate cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA)-related microhemorrhage in a transgenic animal model. Although the mechanism responsible for the deleterious interaction is unclear, a direct binding event may be required. We characterized(More)
Fatty acid binding protein 3 (Fabp3) has been used as a serological biomarker of cardiac injury, but its utility as a preclinical biomarker of injury to skeletal muscle is not well described. Fabp3 concentrations were determined for tissues from Sprague-Dawley rats and found to occur at highest concentrations in cardiac muscle and in skeletal muscles(More)
Six-month-old cockerels and point-of-lay pullets were infected orally with S infantis (1 X 10(10). The cockerels were slaughtered at intervals up to 42 days, and the pullets slaughtered 20 weeks, after infection. Infection produced no clinical disease and minimal changes were observed at autopsy. Serological responses were transient, frequently absent three(More)
Conjunctival flaps have been used in the treatment of corneal diseases since the 1800s, although in recent years their use has decreased. In selected cases, however, the placement of a conjunctival flap still may be the treatment of choice. We report our experience with the use of conjunctival flaps in patients with herpes keratouveitis who had persistent(More)
Observations were made on the persistence of S. typhimurium in litter and houses from an outbreak of disease in broilers. Subsequent studies were made of the persistence of the organism in the litter and of its infectivity to day-old chicks. No S. typhimurium was isolated from the houses after cleaning, disinfection and fumigation. No infection occurred in(More)
