PURPOSE Herpes simplex virus (HSV) DNA persists in the corneas of patients and animals with a history of herpetic keratitis. The purpose of this study was to detect viral transcripts in the corneas of latently infected rabbits with a history of herpetic keratitis to determine whether the viral DNA represents latent virus, characterized by the restricted(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of these studies was to investigate the role of interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha), interleukin 1beta (IL-1beta), and transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) in the regulation of inducible nitric oxide synthase (NOS2) activity in rabbit corneal cells. METHODS Rabbit corneal epithelial, stromal, and(More)
Gas dispersion from shallow manure storage pits was experimentally measured and mathematically modeled in a l:6-scale ventilation chamber. The chamber represents a geometrically scaled model of a production swine grower facility. Gas injection was simulated from shallow pits using carbon dioxide (CO2). The results indicate significant differences in gas(More)
