Latency to initiate and duration of eating of 18 daily 5-pellet meal segments was measured in 22-h food-deprived rats under conditions of pimozide (1 mg/kg, i.p.) and naloxone (2.5, 5.0 and 10.0 mg/kg, i.p.) pretreatment. Neither drug increased latency on the first or second day of testing; pimozide increased mean latency slightly on the third test. Both(More)
Using the in vitro DNA labeling technique of nick translation on purified plasma DNA, we have estimated the plasma DNA concentration in three normal individuals to be 266 +/- 57 ng/ml (mean +/- SD). This was not significantly different in three patients with a chronic inflammatory disease (209 +/- 14 ng/ml) or in five patients with steroid-inactivated(More)
Pacing toward converged voice and data networks, the IP over WDM/OTN network architecture supported by MPLS satisfies the advanced next-generation network requirements to provide fast, reliable, and flexible connectivity services. Acknowledging .the advantages of networks that utilize the above technologies, operators evolve their networks in that(More)
Deprived rats were trained to receive a major portion of their daily food ration in meal segments of five 45 mg food pellets, presented for 36 sec each at 72 sec intervals. Latency to make oral contact with first pellets did not change over 18 meal segments, while the time to complete the eating of meal segments increased progressively. Pre-feeding with 45(More)
The optimal treatment of severe and late leptospirosis, and even the need for antibiotic treatment in such clinical settings, remains a subject of debate. Twenty-two patients with severe late leptospirosis were treated with intravenous ceftriaxone 2g daily. Twenty-one patients recovered and one patient passed away due to respiratory complications of the(More)
