This paper presents the methodology and findings of an international survey carried out in l>89 on the existing information needs and technical facilities of professionals in the field of construction and housing (448 responses from 92 different countries). The survey aimed at the determination of future information services, and five guidelines for future(More)
The potential for olestra to be absorbed and to accumulate in tissues was investigated by analysing liver tissue from rats and monkeys in long-term feeding studies using sensitive chromatographic methods. Studies with intravenously administered olestra indicated that absorbed olestra is predominantly taken up by the liver. In monkeys, 74% of the injected(More)
Caprenin, a randomized triglyceride primarily comprising caprylic (C8:0), capric (C10:0), and behenic (C22:0) acids, was administered in a semi-purified diet to weanling Sprague-Dawley rats (25/sex/group) at dose levels of 5.23, 10.23 or 15.00% (w/w) for 91 days. Corn oil was added at 8.96, 5.91 and 3.00%, respectively, to provide essential fatty acids and(More)
This paper reports the principal results from a postal survey (response rate: 62%) of the students graduating from the MSc Information Management programme in the Department of Information Studies at the University of Sheffield in the years 1994–96. The most important conclusions to be drawn from the responses that were received are that: most of the(More)
Two 2-year feeding studies were carried out in Fischer 344 rats with olestra, a mixture of the hexa-, hepta- and octaesters of sucrose formed with long-chain fatty acids. Olestra was fed at 0, 0.99, 4.76 or 9.09% (w/w) of the diet in the first study, and at 0 or 9.09% (w/w) of the diet in the second. Daily observations, feed consumption and body weights,(More)
Three groups of beagle dogs (five/sex/group) were fed olestra, a mixture of octa-, hepta- and hexa-esters of sucrose formed with long-chain fatty acids, at 0, 5 or 10% of the diet for 20 months. The objective of the study was to assess the potential chronic toxicity of olestra in a non-rodent species. The feed was supplemented with vitamins A and E to(More)
