The cercaria of Cryptocotyle lingua has simple pointed spines all over the body. Four pointed modified spines occur dorsally in the mouth, and similar spines surround the openings of the penetration glands. The modified spines are shed shortly after penetration and encystment in the fish host. Less than a week after encystment, cytoplasmic folds develop all(More)
The egg of Fasciola hepatica has a smooth surface with a slightly elevated circle marking the fracture of the operculum. The operculum and the aperture have crenated edges. The epithelial cells of the miracidium are covered with long cilia. When miracidia are vibrated in an ultrasonic cleaner the cilia of the epithelial cells of the four posteroir tiers are(More)
Titanium sponges were infused with bone morphogenetic protein (BMP-Ti), and the osteoinductivity of the resultant composite was measured. New bone formation occurred three weeks after implantation and was identified by soft x-ray analysis. Quantitative analysis showed no significant difference between BMP-Ti composites and control samples (BMP only).(More)
The purpose of this study was to find whether the addition of dietary lysine affected the rate of brain protein synthesis in aged rats fed on a gluten diet. Experiments were done on two groups of aged rats (30 wk) given the diets containing 5% gluten or 5% gluten + 0.3% lysine for 10 d. The fractional rates of protein synthesis in brain, liver, and kidney(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether the quantity of dietary protein affects the rate of brain protein synthesis in aged rats. Experiments were conducted on three groups of 30-wk-old rats fed diets containing 0, 5 or 20 g casein/100 g for 10 d. The fractional rates of protein synthesis in brain, liver and kidney declined with a decrease in(More)
We determined whether the synthesis and degradation of N-acetylglutamate would regulate urea synthesis when the thyroid status was manipulated. Experiments were done on three groups of rats, each being given 6-propyl-2-thiouracil (PTU, a thyroid inhibitor) without a triiodothyronine (T3) treatment, treated with PTU + T3, or receiving neither PTU nor T3(More)
Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) is known to be a protein which induces new bone at heterotopic sites. Purification of BMP has not been perfected, and obtaining large amounts of BMP is very difficult, so it seems better to use some carrier or frame material for BMP to work effectively. Various kinds of hydroxyapatite (HAP) have been used to repair(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether the quality of dietary protein affects the rate of brain protein synthesis in aged rats. Experiments were conducted on three groups of aged rats (30 wk) given diets containing 20 g casein, 20 g gluten or 20 g gelatin/100 g for 10 d. The fractional rates of protein synthesis in the brain, liver and kidney(More)
There are two different treatments for condyle neck fracture. One is non-surgical treatment involving intermaxillary fixation, and the other is radical surgical treatment through various techniques, but it is difficult to discuss the relative merits. The purpose of this report is to decide whether surgical treatment is necessary, by comparing the two types(More)
