Captive female brushtail possums were assigned to control (placebo implant), low dose (4.7 mg deslorelin) or high dose (9.4 mg deslorelin) groups;(More)
BACKGROUND Lipopolysaccharide causes activation of monocytes/macrophages with excessive secretion of cytokines resulting in hypotension and shock in patients with sepsis. Lipopolysaccharide may induce these responses by interacting with lipopolysaccharide-binding protein and then binding to the cell surface protein CD14 or by acting directly with CD11-CD18(More)
The common brushtail possum (Trichosurus vulpecula) is indeed a common marsupial in major cities of Australia. This species is known to be susceptible to leptospirosis and often lives in close contact with humans, raising concerns about the potential for transmission of this disease in urban areas.
