Rats of the high-drinking AA line were given 1 mg/kg naltrexone (NTX) or vehicle orally with a stress-free procedure just before 1 h of access to 10% ethanol daily for 8 days and again, 8 h later on the first 7 days. Forebrain homogenate binding studies using 0.03-6.00 nM [3H] naloxone were conducted from 1 to 4 days following treatment. NTX significantly(More)
BACKGROUND Mild to moderate steatotic livers are used as marginal donors in liver transplantation. Very little is known about the mechanisms of ischemia reperfusion (IR) injury (IRI) in fatty liver. This study aimed to establish whether cytochrome oxidase C (COX) activity is compromised by IRI in fatty liver and whether ischemic preconditioning (IPC) can(More)
Melioidosis was diagnosed in two cats at necropsy. The first cat presented with jaundice and anaemia but died of overwhelming sepsis soon after admission, despite blood transfusion and other supportive measures. The second cat died several days after developing neurological signs; an infected digital wound may have been the primary focus of infection in(More)
Steatotic livers are highly susceptible to I/R (ischaemia/reperfusion) injury and, therefore, the aim of the present study was to evaluate the in vivo effect of NAC (N-acetylcysteine) on hepatic function in the early and initial late phase of warm liver I/R injury in steatotic rabbits. Twelve New Zealand White rabbits were fed a high-cholesterol (2%) diet.(More)
