We exposed adult Rhesus (Macaca mulatta) to a transient global ischemia, which was induced by clipping the innominate and subclavian arteries that originated from the aortic arch. NHP1 received 20-min, while NHP2 and NHP3, were exposed to a 15-min transient global ischemia and were euthanized at day 1 (NHP1), day 5 (NHP2) or day 30 (NHP3) after ischemia,(More)
Bovine neutrophils, human recombinant tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF), and bovine recombinant granulocyte macrophage/colony stimulating factor (GM/CSF) were added to microaerophilic cultures of Babesia bovis and Babesia bigemina to determine if those substances could inhibit growth. Incorporation of [3H]hypoxanthine by the Babesia spp. was utilized as an(More)
We investigated a non-human primate (NHP) transient global ischemia (TGI) model which was induced by clipping the arteries originating from the aortic arch. Previously we demonstrated that our TGI model in adult Rhesus macaques (Macaca mulatta) results in marked neuronal cell loss in the hippocampal region, specifically the cornu Ammonis (CA1) region.(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the in vivo performance of sustained-release zidovudine (AZT) microspheres after oral administration in Beagle dogs, and to establish an in vitro-in vivo correlation. Two AZT microsphere formulations as well as AZT powder were administered to four Beagle dogs. Plasma samples were analyzed by HPLC. The plasma(More)
