Because of competitive interactions in the metabolism of polyunsaturated fatty acids, tissue and bodily requirements for each of the three dietary essential fatty acids in marine fish, 22:6n-3, 20:5n-3 and 20:4n-6, cannot be meaningfully considered in isolation. Rather, it is necessary to consider requirements in relative as well as absolute amounts, i.e.(More)
Dietary fatty acid supply can affect stress response in fish during early development. Although knowledge on the mechanisms involved in fatty acid regulation of stress tolerance is scarce, it has often been hypothesised that eicosanoid profiles can influence cortisol production. Genomic cortisol actions are mediated by cytosolic receptors which may respond(More)

Marketers have recently begun to embrace complex experimental designs for marketing and advertising testing. Full-factorial, fractional-factorial and Plackett–Burman designs have given marketers new statistical tools to increase the speed, power, and profitability of their testing programs. This case study shows how well constructed and managed experimental(More)
Introduction: Cranial traction leading to 6th nerve palsy is the main cause of developing diplopia following spinal surgery. Very few cases of abducens nerve palsy as a complication of surgery without cranial traction have been described. We review a series of four patients who developed diplopia following spinal surgery only one of which had cranial pins(More)
This paper describes and discusses a Plackett-Burman experiment aimed at increasing supermarket sales of a top-selling national magazine. The experiment involved 10 factors relating to in-store advertising and the location of the magazine within the store. We discuss issues including choice of factors, alternative designs, sample-size determination (number(More)
Cuticular waxes are essential for the well-being of all plants, from controlling the transport of water and nutrients across the plant surface to protecting them against external environmental attacks. Despite their significance, our current understanding regarding the structure and function of the wax film is limited. In this work, we have formed(More)
