Reproductive and economic impact following controlled introduction of cattle persistently infected with bovine viral diarrhea virus into a naive group of heifers.
The reproductive impact following controlled introduction of animals persistently infected (PI) with bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) was evaluated in BVDV-naive heifers. Heifers were randomlyExpand

Leukemia inhibitory factor as a mediator of lipopolysaccharide effects on appetite and selected hormones and metabolites.
Leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) has been suggested to function as a potent inhibitor of feed intake in rodents. In sheep, intravenous injection of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) resulted in an increase inExpand
