BACKGROUND Reconstruction of large craniofacial bone defects is a challenge using bone transplants or alloplastic materials. The use of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 together with a suitable carrier is an attractive option that may facilitate new bone formation. The authors have developed a hydrogel that is formed in situ by the cross-linking of(More)
The development of intestinal lesions after inoculation with Brachyspira hyodysenteriae was followed by repeated endoscopy and biopsy sampling through a caecal cannula. Seven eight-week-old pigs were cannulated and inoculated, two were cannulated but not inoculated, and two pigs were inoculated but not cannulated. Endoscopy, biopsy, and blood sampling to(More)
A traditional design for studies of pathogenesis of experimentally induced diseases of the large intestine in individual pigs involves euthanasia and necropsy at scheduled times. An alternative design has been developed enabling the sequential in vivo monitoring of events in the intestine of the individual pig before and during disease. The alternative(More)
Some interrelations between physical stress and immune competence were studied in pigs. One group of pigs underwent 2 intense short-term treadmill exercise tests, separated by an interval of 1 week, and another group served as controls. In vitro production of interferon alpha by blood mononuclear cells and the ability of lymphocytes to proliferate and(More)
