Five commonly practised veterinary procedures were studied: Palpation per rectum of the reproductive tract, intramuscular injection, single venepuncture, repeated venepuncture and jugular vein catheterisation. Plasma cortisol concentrations increased from baseline values of approximately 2 ng/ml to maximum mean values between 6.5 +/- 2.5 ng/ml and 13.8 +/-(More)
Stress is known to result in lowered female reproductive efficiency. The objective of this study was to examine how increased pituitary-adrenal activity may influence gonadotrophin release in anoestrous ewes. Various doses (0.06-1.0 mg) of a synthetic adrenocorticotrophic hormone (ACTH(1-24)) preparation were injected into ewes 30 min or 3 h before an i.v.(More)
In an experiment to examine the relationships between adrenals and reproductive cycle, 10 mg dexamethasone (a synthetic glucocorticoid) were injected intramuscularly twice daily for 10 d to four Black Bengal goats, beginning on Day 11 of the synchronized estrous cycle. The extended length of the sexual cycle was monitored by the clinical signs of anestrus.(More)
In the title triangulo-triruthenium compound, [Ru(3)(C(6)H(15)O(3)P)(CO)(11)], each Ru atom has distorted octa-hedral coord-ination geometry. The monodentate phosphine ligand is equatorially coordinated to one Ru atom, leaving one equatorial and two axial carbonyl substituents on the Ru atom. Each of the remaining two Ru atoms carries two equatorial and two(More)
Betamethasone (a synthetic glucocorticoid, 15 mg) was administered i.m. twice daily for 10 days to 4 regularly cycling dairy cows, beginning on Day 10 of the oestrous cycle. Luteal function, monitored by plasma progesterone, was extended by 7, 9, 19 and 20 days, respectively. Luteal function in the next cycle was normal. Endogenous cortisol values were(More)
Dairy cows with a variety of clinical conditions were investigated in an attempt to identify the cause(s) of subfertility. Sequential or simultaneous injections of 20 micrograms gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH), 1 mg oestradiol benzoate and 0.06 mg ACTH(1-24) into five clinical cases of ovarian follicular cysts, two cases of poor body condition and(More)
