Dogs can be infected by several nematodes of the Trichuridae family. Trichuridae eggs are all similar, barrel shaped with polar plugs, and misdiagnosis among different species can occur. The most common species is Trichuris vulpis, while the respiratory parasites Eucoleus boehmi (syn. Capillaria boehmi) and Eucoleus aerophilus (syn. Capillaria aerophila)(More)
The effects of thyroid hormone on insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) production by Sertoli cells isolated from immature rats have been investigated. In Sertoli cells from hypothyroid rats the production of IGF-I was significantly lower than in controls and was greatly stimulated by the administration of triiodothyronine (T3) in vivo. The in vitro addition(More)
The antiepileptic drug valproic acid is a well-known teratogenic agent; its main target organ is the neural tube, though skeletal malformations have also been described. In our recent work, respecifications of vertebrae were described in rat fetuses after treatment with 400 mg/kg of sodium valproate at specific somitogenic stages. The observed malformations(More)
