In this study, the influence of the probiotics, Pediococcus acidilactici (PA) and Saccharomyces cerevisiae boulardii (SCB), on intestinal immune traits and resistance to enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) infection was evaluated in pigs. Two weeks before farrowing, 30 sows and their future litters were allocated to the following treatments: 1) control(More)
The protective ratio produced by HI-6 (with atropine) against soman and tabun poisoning in rats and guinea pigs was determined. The amount of protection afforded by HI-6 decreased with time following poisoning, prompting us to examine the effects of repeated doses of HI-6 (four additional) given over a 5-hr period. In addition, it was determined that HI-6(More)
?-Conotoxin GVIA (?-conotoxin) is an inhibitor of neuronal voltage sensitive calcium channels (VSCCs). We have examined the effects of various manipulations aimed at elucidating the effects of ?-conotoxin particularly on K(+) stimulated (45)Ca(2+) influx and endogenous acetylcholine (ACh) release. The initial phase of K(+) stimulated (45)Ca(2+) influx was(More)
Diabetic trauma patients exhibit delayed postsurgical wound, bony healing, and dysregulated bone development. However, the impact of diabetes on the pathologic development of ectopic bone or heterotopic ossification (HO) following trauma is unknown. In this study, we use leptin-deficient mice as a model for type 2 diabetes to understand how post-traumatic(More)
