Late lessons from early warnings: the precautionary principle 1896-2000
Since the 1897 report of Santessen, who observed aplastic anaemia among young women engaged in the manufacture of bicycle tyres in Sweden, and the report in the same year by LeNoir and Claude, whoExpand
Radioimmunoassay of oestrone and oestradiol in human and bovine peripheral plasma.
Researchers in Sweden developed and assessed radioimmunoassays of estrone and estradiol in human and bovine peripheral plasma and found that in the 34 normal menstrual cycles observed in women a well defined midcycle estrogen peak always occurred; the luteal phase was less pronounced. Expand
Blood plasma levels of progesterone and oestradiol in the dog during the oestrous cycle and pregnancy.
The data suggest that the dog is not an ideal test animal for steroids synthetized for use in man, as it fluctuated between similar maximum levels and extremely low levels during the normal oestrous cycle, pregnancy and at parturition. Expand
Treatment of bovine pyometra with prostaglandin F2α: An evaluation of a field study
The results suggest that PGF 2α may be the treatment of choice for pyometra in cattle and due to its non-traumatic nature the PG-treatment has great advantages over the manual enucleation of the corpus luteum. Expand
A field study of management stress in reindeer (Rangifer tarandus L)
It is concluded that various herding and handling methods led to varying degrees of deleterious effects on the health of the animals and a poorer meatquality from slaughtered animals, and herding should be undertaken as carefully as possible, and the time taken for manual handling should be minimized.

Androgen and glucocorticoid receptors in porcine skeletal muscle.
The amount of free androgen receptor and the androgen was more tightly bound to its receptor in pigs with above-average ham growth and a higher DNA content was also found in these pigs, giving a lower protein to DNA ratio. Expand
Progesterone in defatted milk: its relation to insemination and pregnancy in normal cows as compared with cows on problem farms and individual problem animals.
It is concluded that the analysis of milk progesterone in conjunction with the request for insemination can help to achieve improved fertility results especially for cows on problem farms and for individual problem cows. Expand
Changes in Plasma Progesterone Levels During Storage of Heparinized Whole Blood from Cow, Horse, Dog and Pig
For all species it was found that the storage of plasma at room temperature for 5–9 days did not change the progesterone concentrations, and by further extending the storage period, a reappearance of assayable progestersone could be elicited. Expand
Blood glutathione-peroxidase levels in skin diseases: effect of selenium and vitamin E treatment.
Low values of GSH-Px were found in patients with psoriasis, eczema, atopic dermatitis, vasculitis, mycosis fungoides and dermatitis herpetiformis, and Vegetarian diet, malnutrition and alcohol abuse could possibly account for the low values. Expand
