Microbial numbers, pH, fluid volume, and turnover rate in the pony cecum were measured during an abrupt change from an all-forage to an all-concentrate diet, both fed at maintenance energy levels. Concentrate feeding resulted in increased (P less than 0.01) numbers of total viable anaerobic bacteria. The numbers of organisms growing on selective starch(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Natural infection of research mice with enterohepatic Helicobacter spp. is common and may confound experimental studies from intercurrent disease. We evaluated a protocol of dirty bedding exposure for transmission of Helicobacter infection from colony mice to female Tac:(SW)fBR sentinel mice over 6 months. METHODS Cecal scrapings(More)
Helicobacter hepaticus infection causes hepatitis in A/JCr mice but mild or no disease in C57BL/6 mice. Colonization of H. hepaticus in the cecum of experimentally infected A/JCr and C57BL/6 mice was quantified by use of real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis with primers for the H. hepaticus cdtB gene and mouse 18srRNA. Eight-week-old mice were(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic insomnia is common among patients with heart failure (HF) and may contribute to fatigue and poor function. However, to date there have been no randomized controlled trials focused on treatment of insomnia or daytime symptoms in this population. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to examine the preliminary efficacy, feasibility,(More)
Experiments have been conducted in NASA Langley’s Acoustics and Dynamics Laboratory to determine the effectiveness of optimized actuator/sensor architectures and controller algorithms for active control of harmonic interior noise. Tests were conducted in a large scale fuselage model a composite cylinder which simulates a commuter class aircraft fuselage(More)
Acoustic data have been acquired for the XV-15 tiltrotor aircraft performing approach operations for a variety of different approach profile configurations. This flight test program was conducted jointly by NASA, the U.S. Army, and Bell Helicopter Textron, Inc. (BHTI) in June 1997. The XV-15 was flown over a large area microphone array, which was deployed(More)
