INTRODUCTION Severe sepsis is characterised by intravascular or extravascular infection with microbial agents, systemic inflammation and microcirculatory dysfunction, leading to tissue damage, organ failure and death. The growth factor angiopoietin (Ang-1) has therapeutic potential but recombinant Ang-1 tends to aggregate and has a short half-life in vivo.… (More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that the neuroprotective compound CP101,606 will ameliorate the increase in lactate, retard the development of cytotoxic edema, and decrease the infarct volume after ischemic stroke. METHODS Seventeen adult cats were allocated to control (n = 7) and CP101,606-treated groups (n =… (More)
Isolates of Edwardsiella tarda from four sources produced nonfilterable hemolsin in trypticase soy broth. The cell-associated hemolysin was partially heat labile, destroyed by formalin and sensitive to treatment with trypsin. These characteristics, and the observation that Ca++ or Mg++ ions enhanced activity, suggest that a proteinaceous, enzymic component… (More)
Edwardsiella tarda was isolated from the large intestine of seven (17%) of 42 racoons from Florida. The rate varied from 12% in South Florida to 25% in North Florida. In addition, 52% of the racoons examined were carrying Salmonella, with numerous serotypes represented.
