Early stage caprine embryos were incubated with goat oviduct and uterine cells to evaluate whether these cells could be used as a somatic cell culture system to enhance development through the developmental block at the 8- to 16-cell stage during in-vitro culture. Following gonadotrophin treatment and natural mating, 2- to 4-cell embryos were surgically(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare, longitudinally, the effectiveness of scaling and root planing, osseous surgery, and the modified Widman procedures. The study was carried out in a private practice setting. Sixteen adult patients with moderate to advanced adult periodontitis were treated with initial scaling and oral hygiene procedures. Posthygiene(More)
The objectives of this study were to identify the level and stage of embryonic mortality that occur in dairy cows during hot and cool seasons of the year. Experimental dairy cows, of varying ages, were artificially inseminated with frozen-thawed semen from proven Holstein sires. Females on each dairy unit were then randomly allocated to one of three(More)
Neutropenia is a transient or chronic blood disorder characterized by a decrease in the number of circulating polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs). Neutrophils are a major cellular defense against infection, and depletion of these cells is potentially fatal. Stomatitis and gingivitis frequently are seen in patients with neutropenia. Therefore, the diagnosis(More)
BACKGROUND Scaling and root planing, osseous surgery, and modified Widman procedures are effective methods for treating periodontal diseases. Studies have been carried out to determine if these procedures are more effective than others in reducing clinical probing depths, while maintaining clinical attachment levels. The purpose of this report is to present(More)
Early-stage caprine embryos were placed in the chick embryo amnion to determine if this culture method would support the development of embryos from a farm animal species. Following superovulation and natural mating, two- to eight-cell embryos were surgically collected from crossbred donor goats. Embryos were allotted to in vitro culture treatments across(More)
A surgical and suturing method is described for the subgingival placement of Gore-tex periodontal material during new attachment procedures. The periodontal material isolates the root surface from epithelium and gingival connective tissue. Three cases were treated. Clinical new attachment was evident from clinical probings and reentry. The term "open(More)
