The effect of daily doses from birth of two diphosphonates, namely either ethane-1-hydroxy-1,1-diphosphonate (EHDP) or dichloromethylene diphosphonate (Cl2MDP), on the growth and the skeleton of mice has been studied. Diphosphonates slowed growth, the incisors did not erupt or erupted later, but the level of plasma calcium remained normal. The(More)
Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli together represent the leading bacterial cause of human enteritis. However, the pathogenesis of this disease is poorly understood.
