A study to determine the nutritive value of mulberry (Morus alba) leaves in sheep diets was conducted. Mulberry leaves contained (g kg−1 on dry matter basis): 163 ash, 201 crude protein, 120 crude fibre, 37 ether extracts, 479 nitrogen-free extracts, 268 neutral detergent fibre, 148 acid detergent fibre, 41 acid detergent lignin, 121 cellulose and 107(More)
This review deals with the toxicology of sulfur in ruminants including toxicity, neurotoxic effects, and mechanism of toxic action of hydrogen sulfide, clinical signs, and treatment. It will report effects of excessive intake of sulfur by ruminants on feed intake, animal performance, ruminal digestion and motility, rumination, and other physiological(More)
Concentrations of the tumour-associated antigens CEA, CA 15-3 and CA 125 were determined in serous effusions (EF) from patients (pts) with breast cancer. As controls, serous effusions from patients with benign and other malignant diseases were used. The EF levels were also compared with those of serum. CA 15-3 was elevated (greater than 35 U/ml) in 65.7% of(More)
Ifosfamide (IFS) is a new alkylating oxazaphosphorine related to cyclophosphamide. Various side effects have been reported; however, cardiotoxicity is not known to occur in humans. We report for first time acute cardiac side effects upon IFS treatment in the form of supraventricular arrhythmias and ST-T wave changes. IFS dose ranged from 6.5 g/m2 to 10 g/m2(More)
The effect of gossypol content of cottonseed cake given as a source of CP in lamb (n = 8) rations was examined on the following blood parameters: plasma total protein, albumin, globulins, urea, glucose, hematocrit, hemoglobin, and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentrations. The diets were isonitrogenous and isocaloric and contained 0, 15, and 30% cottonseed(More)
Sulfate of blood plasma recycled to the rumen is potentially an important source of sulfur for rumen bacteria, especially when the diet is low in sulfur, in much the same way as ammonia released from urea and transferred from the blood is a source of nitrogen. Estimates of recycling of endogenous sulfur to the rumen vary considerably among various roughage(More)
Effects of variations in dietary sulfur on rumen sulfur dynamics were studied under steady state conditions. In the first experimental period, three sheep were given 33.3 g of a pelleted diet hourly containing 1.59 g sulfur/kg (low) and in the second period the sulfur content was increased to 3.21 g/kg (high) by the addition of sodium sulfate. The daily(More)
A small percentage (1-10%) of renal cell carcinomas (RCC) belongs to the sarcomatoid variant. These malignancies are aggressive with worse prognosis and unfortunately the results following immuno- and/or chemotherapy administration are discouraging. A 62-year-old Caucasian male with advanced renal cell cancer and sarcomatoid component treated with sunitinib(More)
