This study first investigates the effects of mash diet, or mash supplemented with either 2.5% mannose-oligosaccharide (MOS) or palm kernel meal (PKM), on the microflora of the hen caecal contents. Second, it investigates the effect of caecal contents of hens (HCC) fed mash or mash supplemented with MOS or PKM on the major microflora groups of chicks, and(More)
1. The dietary inclusion of 15 and 25 g/kg mannose was associated with a reduction in the numbers of Salmonella enteritidis (PT4) in the caecal contents of chicks challenged by the food. The same benefit was not recorded for S. infantis, possibly because this strain, unlike S. enteritidis PT4, lacked mannose-sensitive fimbriae. 2. The addition of 25 g/kg(More)
This study evaluated the protection against colonization by Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis in the chick's caecum when dosed with caecal contents from hens fed dietary carbohydrates based on mannose. Protection was investigated by comparing the effects of four suspensions of hen caecal contents (HCC) fed diets supplemented with 2.5% D -mannose(More)
The most effective means to prepare the hepatic donor liver for harvest, preservation, and transplantation are not known. Studies have shown that in combination with an injury to the liver, fasting reduces hepatic function. This study randomized 20 market pigs, 20 to 45 kg, to an overnight fast (fed group) or a 42-hour fast (fasted group). Under general(More)
The number of heart transplants in France has begun to increase again in the past few years, albeit slowly. Indications for transplants must be discussed on a case-by-case basis and no contraindication should be considered absolute. Heart transplant results have not been modified by the expansion of the selection criteria for donors. The "super-urgent" list(More)
