In this study, the 23S rRNA genes of nine different Pediococcus type strains were sequenced. By using a multiple sequence alignment with 23S rDNA sequences of related lactic acid bacteria two primer pairs were constructed, one for the general identification of the genus Pediococcus and one for the identification of the atypical species, P. dextrinicus.(More)
Cells of the mononuclear phagocytotic system (MPS) are often found near to or within ischemic tissue and can potentially aggravate cellular damage. Hence, visualization of those cells would allow demarcation of putatively affected from intact tissue. Experimental MRI studies have shown that ultrasmall particles of dextran-coated iron oxide (USPIO) are(More)
Experiments were performed to elucidate the mechanisms involved in the enhanced conversion of amino acids to glucose in acute uraemic rats. Increased gluconeogenesis from a mixture of serine, threonine, lysine, glutamate, ornithine and citrulline was confirmed using a non-recirculating perfusion system. Stimulation was concentration dependent, being most(More)
A second randomized double-blind study to determine the efficacy of doxycycline, 100 mg daily, for the prevention of travelers' diarrhea was carried out among 50 Peace Corps Volunteers during their first 10 wk in Morocco. The volunteers took either doxycycline or placebo for 3 wk, and were observed for an additional 7 wk. Eleven of 24 taking the placebo and(More)
Daily doxycycline (DX), known to be effective prophylaxis against travelers' diarrhea (TD) in areas of the world where enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) are sensitive to the drug, has not been extensively studied in geographic areas where antibiotic resistance is common. Therefore we studied 44 U.S. Peace Corps Volunteers during their first 5 weeks in(More)
A double-blind study to determine the efficacy of biweekly oral doxycycline in the prevention of travelers' diarrhea was conducted among 46 Peace Corps volunteers during their first six weeks in Honduras. The volunteers took either 100 mg of doxycycline per dose or a placebo for three weeks and were observed for an additional three weeks. There was no(More)
Net acetate uptake/release by various tissues was studied in vivo in fed, starved and Paromomycin-treated rats and in patients with cirrhosis of the liver. In humans the portal vein, hepatic vein and hepatic arterial blood flow rates were determined simultaneously. In rats acetate is only intestinally produced and released into the portal vein. Intestinal(More)
Hyperglycemia and impaired glucose tolerance are well known phenomena occurring in patients with renal failure. In contrast to true diabetic subjects, an elevated ratio of insulin to glucose during the glucose tolerance test is consistently observed indicating a peripheral insulin insensitivity. Among the possible reasons, a disturbance at the cellular(More)
1. Urea cycle enzymes and ornithine ketoacid transaminase were extracted from rat liver using various buffer systems and different procedures for the mechanical disintegration of the cells. Of the buffers tested, phosphate and glutathipne gave optimal results, whereas significant differences were found when other extracting media were used: activities of(More)
