Between October 1999 and February 2001 the salmonella status of 449 dairy farms in England and Wales was determined by environmental sampling on up to four occasions. Data were collected through interview-based questionnaires, and multivariable analyses were used to identify risk factors associated with the farms either being Salmonella positive (prevalence(More)
BACKGROUND Rodent models of orofacial pain typically use methods adapted from manipulations to hind paw; however, limitations of these models include animal restraint and subjective assessments of behavior by the experimenter. In contrast to these methods, assessment of operant responses to painful stimuli has been shown to overcome these limitations and(More)
A study of randomly selected dairy farms in England and Wales was made between October 1999 and February 2001 to estimate the prevalence and incidence of Salmonella serovars. The farms were enrolled through five milk-buying companies, which represented 63 per cent of the dairy farms in England and Wales, and they were sampled on up to four occasions (449(More)
Regional vascular responses to angiotensin (Ang)-(1-7), a heptapeptide derivative of Ang II were investigated in the feline hindquarters and mesenteric vascular beds under conditions of controlled flow. In the mesenteric vascular bed, injections of Ang-(1-7) in doses of 1, 3 and 10 micrograms produced dose-dependent decreases in mesenteric perfusion(More)
The proliferative responses of human prostatic carcinoma have been evaluated in organ culture using [125I]-iododeoxyuridine ([125I]UdR) to monitor DNA synthesis. The morphological preservation was not influenced by the addition of fetal calf serum or insulin (5 mu gm/ml), transferrin (10 mu gm/ml), and thyrotropin releasing hormone (10(-9) M) to the active(More)
