Toxicological effects of dietary soy trypsin inhibitor (TI) were assessed in male miniature swine, a model chosen for its similarities to human digestive physiology and anatomy. The TI preparation was extracted from defatted raw soy flour. From 1 through 5 weeks of age, piglets were automatically fed either a TI liquid diet [Autosow TI group (ASTI)] or a(More)
PURPOSE The comparative outcome of primary hip and knee arthroplasty is not well understood. This study aimed to investigate the outcome and satisfaction of these procedures and determine predictive models for 1 year patient outcome with a view to informing surgical management and patient expectations. STUDY DESIGN Prospective cohort study of all primary(More)
The potential toxicity of dietary soy trypsin inhibitor (TI) was evaluated in neonatal miniature swine. From 1 to 6 weeks of age, two groups of male piglets were artificially reared in an Autosow and automatically fed either TI or control liquid diet. From 6 to 39 weeks of age, these two groups were fed either TI or control chow diet. A third group, sow(More)
Arctic sea ice responds to atmospheric forcing in primarily a top-down manner, whereby near-surface air circulation and temperature govern motion, formation, melting, and accretion. As a result, concentrations of sea ice vary with phases of many of the major modes of atmospheric variability, including the North Atlantic Oscillation, the Arctic Oscillation,(More)
Age- and sex-related differences were observed in the plasma cholesterol level, the plasma concentrations of certain lipoprotein components, and the HDL lipid phase fluidity in miniature swine from post-weaning (6 weeks) through puberty (6 months), maturity (2-6 years), and old age (10-12 years). Age effects were more dominant in the males, with VLDL(More)
Rat hepatic 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme-A reductase (HMG-CoA reductase) was found to be lower in rats fed a semipurified diet of sucrose, casein, and cellulose with a mixture of safflower oil and stripped lard than those fed a stock diet: 0.115 versus 0.447 nmoles mevalonic acid formed/minute/mg microsomal protein. Efforts were made to find the(More)
Six African green monkeys were labeled intravenously with [1,2-(3)H]cholesterol while consuming a cholesterol-free liquid formula diet. The plasma cholesterol specific activity was compared with the specific activity of the biliary cholesterol and bile acids and with the fecal neutral steroids in order to determine whether the traditional isotopic balance(More)
