This study examined mercury levels in northern pike (Esox lucius) from the Twin Valley Reservoir in southern Alberta, 2 years after construction in 2003. The hypothesis was tested that mercury concentrations in pike from the reservoir are significantly higher than in pike from the nearby Oldman River. Mercury concentrations in muscle tissue (0.37–1.54 ppm)(More)
BACKGROUND Fish oil consisting of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) seems to reduce the incidence of colon cancer. The effect of PUFAs on metastasis of colon carcinoma is still unclear. AIM The study was designed to examine the effects of a diet rich in omega-3-PUFAs on a model of colorectal metastasis. METHODS Thirty animals (WAG/Rij) were(More)
OBJECTIVES Today's increasing specialization of medicine necessitates the integration of telematic platforms for cross-institutional cooperation. In order to leverage the strengths of each cooperating institution a centralized unified storage using shared electronic patient records (EPRs) as well as secured remote data entry capabilities for supporting(More)
Staphylococcus aureus is a human pathogen that can cause a wide range of diseases. Although formerly regarded as extracellular pathogen, it has been shown that S. aureus can also be internalized by host cells and persist within these cells. In the present study, we comparatively analyzed survival and physiological adaptation of S. aureus HG001 after(More)
UNLABELLED Macrophages are essential components of the innate immune system and crucial for pathogen elimination in early stages of infection. We previously observed that bone marrow-derived macrophages (BMMs) from C57BL/6 mice exhibited increased killing activity against Burkholderia pseudomallei compared to BMMs from BALB/c mice. This effect was(More)
Staphylococcus aureus is an opportunistic human pathogen, which can cause life-threatening disease. Proteome analyses of the bacterium can provide new insights into its pathophysiology and important facets of metabolic adaptation and, thus, aid the recognition of targets for intervention. However, the value of such proteome studies increases with their(More)
The Clearinghouse application platform is a web based solution for secure digital exchange of radiological images and other clinical documents among authorized researchers and physicians. It implements a sophisticated security and role model to protect privacy and to minimize the risk of eavesdropping of patient data. The Clearinghouse serves as a(More)
