The ultrastructure and maturation of avian pox particles is described in the rare case of a naturally infected hawk (Falco cherrug). As in other cells infected by fowlpox virus two types of inclusion bodies are encountered in the cytoplasm: firstly assemblies of fluffy filamentous material apparently giving rise to immature virions. They are thought to(More)
Leaching of metals with carbon-heterotrophic microorganisms and organic acids as active agents has been performed with Timna copper ore containing 1.1% copper as carbonates and silicate and with some other metal oxides. Aspergillus niger surface cultures on a 14% sucrose fermentation medium yeilded 87.3% of total copper from 10% suspension within 2 weeks of(More)
The possible use of cotton waste as a carbohydrate source of citric acid production by Aspergillus niger was examined. No citric acid was produced when A. niger was grown on cotton waste as a sole carbon source. In two-stage fermentations, however, mycelium obtained from surface cultures in cotton waste medium yielded more citric acid when transferred to(More)
30 female Wistar rats weighing between 70 and 90 g were fed for 8 months with 0,188% N-[4-(5-nitro-2-furyl)-2-thiazolyl] formamide (FANFT). After this period a papillary tumor of the urinary bladder was demonstrable in each animal. Histological examination always revealed a transitional cell carcinoma with prevailing medium tumor stages; no distant(More)
After feeding with 0.188% N-[4-(5-nitro-2 furyl)-2-thiazolyl] formamide (FANFT), transitional cell carcinoma of the urinary bladder was induced in all female Wistar rats tested. Histological changes of the urothelium consisted of various degrees of hyperplasia and dysplasia. An infiltrating transitional cell carcinoma first appeared after 8 months. These(More)
Infiltrating transitional cell carcinomas of the urinary bladder were induced by ingestion of 0.188% N-[4-(5-nitro-2-furyl)-2-thiazolyl] formamide (FANFT) in 145 female Wistar rats. After 8 months of carcinogen exposure, the animals were divided into different treatment groups. They received cyclophosphamide intraperitoneally as a single injection or BCG(More)

Revision in THA continues to be a technical challenge because of difficulties in fixation of the femoral component in mostly deficient bone in the proximal femur. In cases with minor cortical defects, the use of primary stems in revision surgery has also been described by some authors. Seventy-nine patients with minor femoral bone defects were reviewed(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to evaluate the uncemented primary Bicontact stem (B.Braun-Aesculap, Tuttlingen, Germany) as a possible adequate alternative to other revision systems in revision total hip arthroplasty. METHODS Twenty patients aged up to 58 years (34-58 years, mean age 5.7 +/- 5.8 years) with minor bone defects underwent a revision total(More)
