The aims of the present study were (a) to maintain the structure and function of the small intestine of the piglet after weaning, and (b) to compare the capacity in vivo of sucking and weaned piglets to digest oral boluses of lactose and sucrose and absorb their monosaccharide products. Piglets were fed on cows' whole milk ad libitum every 2 h for 5 d after(More)
A highly sensitive and simplified method for the luminometric determination of plasma metabolites has been developed. Furthermore, the technique has been automated for the Dynatech ML2250 Microtiter Plate Luminometer and can be applied to the measurement of any plasma metabolite which may be coupled to a reaction involving the reduction of NAD+. Assays are(More)
Many cellular metabolites can be measured with high sensitivity using bioluminescent techniques. These metabolites are coupled to an appropriate enzyme to produce NAD(P)H, which can then be coupled to the bioluminescent reactions. The sensitivity of bioluminescence cannot be readily applied to methods in which cellular metabolites consume NAD(P)H because of(More)
Human scabies (infestation with the mite Sarcoptes scabiei var hominis) causes a significant disease burden worldwide, yet there are no agreed diagnostic guidelines. We aimed to determine whether a consistent approach to diagnosing scabies has been used for published scabies therapeutic trials. The data sources used were the MEDLINE, Embase and Cochrane(More)

Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is the most frequently performed examination to assess bone mineral density in clinical practice. Aside from images and graphical displays, many numerical values are part of DXA reports. These values are typically manually entered into the formal report through the electronic medical record or PACS workstation. The(More)
