1. Experiments were conducted to study the welfare and meat quality effects of shackling. In experiment 1, broilers with or without leg problems were shackled (S) for 4 min on a moving line and blood sampled; or handled (H), returned to the crate and sampled after 4 min; or sampled immediately after removal from the crate (control, C). 2. Plasma(More)
Experiments were conducted to determine 1) whether different crating durations influence stress responses and meat quality in broilers, and 2) whether holding crated broilers after transport influences corticosterone (CORT) levels and meat quality. In a preliminary experiment, male broilers (n = 50) were held in crates (10 birds per crate) for either 0, 1,(More)
1. Experiments were conducted to determine whether different handling methods and crating periods differentially affect plasma corticosterone (CS) concentrations in 6 to 7-week-old broilers. 2. Broilers were subjected to 1 of 3 handling methods for 2 min: (i) 3 birds held in an inverted position in one hand (multiple inverted, MI), (ii) 1 bird held in an(More)
As a vulnerable group, children are more prone to experiencing trauma and its sequelae. After the Asian tsunami we set out to evaluate the effect of exposure to the tsunami nearly one year after the event and to explore the family history of psychopathology on the mental health of children. This community-based study of 230 children was conducted in(More)
The objective of this research was to determine the toluene removal efficiency and breakthrough time using commercially available coconut shell-based granular activated carbon in packed bed reactor. To study the effect of toluene removal and break point time of the granular activated carbon (GAC), the parameters studied were bed lengths (2, 3, and 4 cm),(More)
Children are uniquely vulnerable in the context of a major natural disaster like tsunami. Post disaster intervention studies in children are few, especially from developing countries like India. An intervention programme for children was developed and conducted at Srinivasapuram, a coastal hamlet in Chennai, a year after tsunami. Sixty-five children who(More)
This experiment was conducted to determine the effect of elevated plasma corticosterone (CORT) levels on meat quality characteristics. Male broilers (Arbor Acres) were either 1) fed a diet containing corticosterone (CORT) prior to processing, 2) transported by truck for 3 h before processing, or 3) processed without either of the above treatments. Six(More)
The unique cation exchange chromatography (CEX) charge variant profile of mAb1 is characterized by a combination of mass spectrometry, limited Lys-C digestion followed by CEX separation and structural analysis. During CEX method development, mAb1 showed several unexpected phenomena, including a unique profile containing two main species (acidic 2 and main)(More)
Human IgG2 antibodies contain three types of disulfide isoforms, classified by the number of Fab arms having disulfide links to the heavy chain hinge region. In the IgG2-B form, both Fab arms have interchain disulfide bonds to the hinge region, and in IgG2-A, neither Fab arm are disulfide linked to the hinge. The IgG2-A/B is a hybrid between these two(More)
