1. The fluid sacs and bladders of ten foetuses and the allantoic sacs of five foetuses were catheterized between 79 and 96 days gestational age and daily samples were withdrawn until lambs were born naturally at approximately 147 days. Maternal jugular plasma obtained daily allowed the nutritional status of each ewe to be regulated and monitored. All lambs(More)
Total plasma amino acid concentrations (TAA) in 12 Scottish Blackface ewes between 80 and 140 days of pregnancy were unaltered by two days of starvation, but concentrations of essential amino acids (EAA) increased and non-essential amino acid (NAA) levels decreased. These trends were more pronounced later in pregnancy. Ewes fasted before surgery to implant(More)
1. Catheters were inserted into the maternal and foetal vasculatures of ten ewes, 100-139 days pregnant, and daily samples of uterine and umbilical blood and maternal jugular vein blood were taken for periods of 5-27 days after operation.2. Catheters were inserted into the fluid sacs of nineteen foetuses, 60-97 days post-conception, and daily samples were(More)
PURPOSE We have previously shown in a limited number of tumor cell lines derived from only two histological types that clonogenic survival patterns fall into radiosensitivity groups, each group associating with a specific genotype. We now establish a global, quantitative description of human tumor cells based on genotype-dependent radiosensitivity across(More)
