Cervical lymphnodes metastatization by the squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck is well known as a prognostic negative factor as far as survival is concerned. Multivariate analysis has been used on 207 cases of head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC) in order to identify the possible prognostic significance of a group of clinical and(More)
Thermosensitive polymer networks were synthesized from poly(ethylene glycol), hexamethylene diisocyanate and 1,2,6-hexanetriol in stoichiometric proportions. By varying the amount of 1,2,6-hexanetriol and the molar mass of the poly(ethylene glycol), a wide range of networks with different crosslinking densities was prepared. The networks obtained were(More)
Accurate identification of mastitis-causing bacteria supports effective management and can be used to implement selective use of antimicrobials for treatment. The objectives of this study were to compare the results from a culture-based mastitis pathogen detection test kit ('VetoRapid', Vétoquinol) with standard laboratory culture and to evaluate the(More)
Mastitis, inflammation of the mammary gland, is often caused by intramammary infection with bacterial organisms. It impacts on dairy cattle welfare, production, udder health and longevity in the herd. Current detection methods for mammary inflammation and infection all have limitations, particularly for on-farm diagnosis of non-clinical mastitis after(More)
Between January 2006 and June 2016, 96 ruminants with neurological signs were donated to the Scottish Centre for Production Animal Health and Food Safety (SCPAHFS), University of Glasgow, by veterinarians in the field representing 5.4 per cent of all submissions. Forty-seven different neurological presenting signs were reported with 79 per cent of the(More)
Periodontitis is a polymicrobial infectious disease that causes occlusion change, tooth loss, difficulty in rumination, and premature culling of animals. This study aimed to detect species of the genera Porphyromonas and Prevotella present in the periodontal pocket of sheep with lesions deeper than 5mm (n=14) and in the gingival sulcus of animals considered(More)
