Female Blackface lambs expected to exhibit genetic variability for resistance to gastrointestinal nematodes, were either exposed to continuous experimental infections of Teladorsagia circumcincta or were sham-dosed to monitor phenotypic responses to infection. As a measure of parasitism and host response, worm-eggs in faeces (faecal egg count, FEC) were(More)
Digital gene expression (DGE) analysis offers a route to gene discovery which by-passes the need to develop bespoke arrays for nonmodel species, and is therefore a potentially valuable tool for molecular ecologists. Scottish blackface sheep, which vary in resistance to the common abomasal parasitic nematode Teladorsagia circumcincta, were trickle-infected(More)
Integration of services for sexual and reproductive health (SRH) and HIV has been widely promoted globally in the belief that both clients and health providers benefit through improvements in quality, efficient use of resources, and lower costs, helping to maximize limited health resources and provide comprehensive client-centered care. This article builds(More)
OBJECTIVE Intracardiac beating-heart procedures require the introduction and exchange of complex instruments and devices. To prevent potential complications such as air embolism and bleeding, a universal cardioport was designed and tested. METHODS The design consists of a port body and a series of interchangeable sleeves. The port uses a fluid purging(More)
Pelvic fractures secondary to blunt trauma are associated with a significant mortality rate due to uncontrolled bleeding. Interventional radiology (IR) can play an important and central role in the management of such patients, offering definitive minimally invasive therapy and avoiding the need for high-risk surgery. Rapid access to whole-body computed(More)
