Bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis (BCO) is the most common cause of lameness in commercial broilers. Bacteria entering the blood via translocation from the respiratory system or gastrointestinal tract spread hematogenously to the proximal epiphyseal-physeal cartilage of rapidly growing femora and tibiae, causing BCO. We tested the hypothesis that(More)
PRIMARY OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between performance on the Useful Field of View Test (UFOV) and driving performance following traumatic brain injury (TBI). PARTICIPANTS Sixty people with TBI referred for driving evaluation. MEASURES Useful Field of View Test, Global Rating Scale and Driver Assessment Scale. RESULTS Subject(More)
Bacteria entering the bloodstream via translocation from the gastrointestinal tract spread hematogenously and can trigger bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis (BCO) by infecting osteochondrotic microfractures in the epiphyseal-physeal cartilage of the proximal femora and tibiae. In experiment 1, broilers were fed control feed or the same feed(More)
Bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis (BCO) is the most common cause of lameness in commercial broilers. Growing broilers on wire flooring provides an excellent experimental model for reproducibly triggering significant levels of lameness attributable to BCO. In the present study we evaluated the efficacy of adding HyD (25-OH vitamin D3) to the(More)
Necrotic enteritis (NE) costs the poultry industry USD 2 billion a year worldwide. Subclinical NE costs as much as $0.05 per bird. Clostridium perfringens, the causal microorganism of NE, attaches to epithelial lesions most often caused by coccidiosis, resulting in NE. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of diet type on the population of(More)
Increased usage of an anticoccidial containing lower inclusion levels in a combined product of the ionophore narasin and the chemical nicarbazin over the past decade has raised the question of whether nicarbazin’s efficacy remains unchanged. This led to an examination of anticoccidial sensitivity results from Eimeria spp. isolated from litter samples(More)
