Prolactin (PRL) is an important immunoregulator and might have a role in the pathogenesis of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The regulation of pituitary prolactin secretion is complex and involves a negative feedback process in the hypothalamus, in which dopamine plays the principal role. However, the main source of serum prolactin in lupus patients is(More)
Recent views on autoimmune diseases invoke generalized but specific perturbations in antibody repertoires, rather than the clonally restricted or non-specific polyclonal alterations proposed thus far. The present experiments analyse serum antibody reactivities in 24 systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients and 17 healthy controls, using a method that(More)
Using a Western blot technique that allows quantitative detection of antibody reactivities to a large number of antigens, serum IgG and IgM antibody repertoires were compared in a group of 19 patients with a diagnosis of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) and respective healthy controls. The results show that, irrespective of the duration of(More)
The objectives of this experiment were to determine the effects of replacing ground corn with soybean hulls (SH) in high-concentrate diets on the growth (56-d period), carcass characteristics, and eating behavior of feedlot lambs. Sixty-four Santa Inês ram lambs (18.3 ± 2.8 kg of BW and 69 ± 5 d of age) were assigned to a randomized complete block design(More)
LBA5524 The full, final text of this abstract will be available in Part II of the 2011 Annual Meeting Proceedings, distributed onsite at the Meeting on June 4, 2011, and as a supplement to the June 20, 2011, issue of Journal of Clinical Oncology.
Corn often constitutes the main portion of high-concentrate diets fed to feedlot lambs. However, soybean hulls (SH) may be used to replace corn, and may reduce feed costs and the risk of acidosis. The objective of this experiment was to determine the effect of SH inclusion rate in high-concentrate diets on DMI, apparent digestibility of nutrients, N(More)
Crude glycerin is a gluconeogenic substrate in ruminants and may help to decrease the occurrence of pregnancy toxemia. The objective in this trial was to determine the effects of feeding a diet containing crude glycerin on DMI, milk yield, milk composition, and blood metabolites in periparturient ewes and lamb performance. One hundred eighteen 90 (±1.1)-d(More)
