Three experiments were conducted to determine the effects of feeding broilers formic acid (FA) or calcium formate (CF) on performance and microbiological characteristics of broilers. Live bird performance was not adversely affected by feeding up to 1.0% FA or 1.45% CF. In Experiment 1, levels of salmonellae in carcass and cecal samples were significantly(More)
A buffered propionic acid (BPA) was added to broiler diets fed in floor pens with litter. The BPA was fed continuously at 0, .2, .4, and .8% in Trial 1 and at 0 and .4% in Trial 2. The BPA was also fed at .4% for the last 7 days in Trial 2. Natural salmonellae exposure versus periodic dosage with Salmonella typhimurium was compared in Trial 2. In Trial 1,(More)
Two similar trials were conducted in order to compare the variability in the number of salmonellae between the right and left sides of individual broiler carcasses with the variability among carcasses. In both trials, the variation between carcass sides was equal and was significantly less than the variation among carcasses. For trials involving(More)
Two experiments were performed to determine changes in the abundance of oestrogen and progesterone receptor (ER alpha and PR) mRNAs in equine endometrium during the oestrous cycle and early pregnancy, and under the influence of exogenous steroids. In Expt 1, endometrial biopsies were obtained from non-mated mares during oestrus and at days 5, 10 and 15(More)
Two trials of identical experimental design were conducted to evaluate the NRC (1994) amino acid requirements for growing turkeys. Diets were formulated for 4-wk age intervals using intact ingredients and amino acid supplements to provide 85, 90, 95, 100, 105, 110, 115, and 120% of the suggested requirements. Formulation was done in a manner to minimize(More)
Maximum production of the alpha toxin by Cl. welchii is dependent on the inclusion in the medium of several substances in addition to those required for growth. These factors include: 1. Some substance present in enzymatic digests of certain proteins such as casein and gelatine. 2. Glycerylphosphorylcholine and other substances that are present in extracts(More)
The binding of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug oxaprozin to human serum albumin was studied by bioaffinity high-performance liquid chromatography using a column based on immobilized human serum albumin. Displacement studies using marker compounds for the major drug binding sites showed that oxaprozin has a high affinity for the(More)
The pharmacology, pharmacokinetics, clinical efficacy, adverse effects, and dosage and administration of omeprazole are reviewed. Omeprazole, a substituted benzimidazole, has a unique site and mechanism of action because it inhibits the proton pump--i.e., hydrogen, potassium adenosine triphosphatase (H+,K+-ATPase)--and consequently blocks the final common(More)
