It is now well recognized by the feed industry that dramatically increasing quantities of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) are entering the ingredient market. For those interested in the history of this i ngredient, a substantial scientific literature exists in both refereed journals and proceedings of conferences, particularly the Distillers(More)
BACKGROUND Ornithine carbamoyltransferase (OCT) deficiency is the commonest of the inherited urea cycle disorders. AIMS To determine the long term neurological and cognitive outcome of continuously treated surviving patients. METHODS Twenty eight surviving children (five boys) with OCT deficiency who had been treated continuously with a low protein diet(More)
Two experiments were conducted to investigate whether a positive relationship exists between individual capacity for rapid growth and the subsequent development of ascites lesions in broilers. Chicks were wingbanded at 1 day of age and reared to 7 weeks on high-energy rations designed to promote rapid growth and ascites. All chicks dying during the(More)
Drs. Batal (batal@uga.edu) and Dale (ndale@uga.edu) are poultry scientists at the University of Georgia in Athens. T HE purpose of the Feedstuffs Ingredient Analysis Table is to provide nutritionists with a reasonable estimate of the nutritive values of common feed ingredients. These values are based on current analysis and are reviewed yearly. For each(More)
Spiking mortality syndrome (SMS) in chickens resembles cocklebur toxicity in cattle, sheep, pigs, and rats. In order to determine if cockleburs are toxic to broiler chicks, crushed burs were fed (25% wt:wt) to broilers for 21 days. Ingestion of cockleburs resulted in significant failure to properly gain body weight. Otherwise, chicks did not develop(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the chemical composition, energy and amino acid profile of dried salmon silage (DSS) for broilers. The DSS was obtained by acid digestion of salmon mortalities and subsequently co-dried with wheat bran in a 70:30 ratio (70 parts silage and 30 parts wheat bran). Samples of DSS were evaluated for chemical composition,(More)
Protein restriction has been used in the treatment of renal disease and may also be beneficial in the management of diabetic nephropathy. We evaluated the effects of moderate protein restriction (0.6 g/kg ideal body weight per day) for a 3-mo period on renal function in seven diabetic patients. Moderate protein restriction led to a decrease of approximately(More)
A variety of chromosome 16 abnormalities, including inversion, deletion, and translocation in patients with acute myelomonocytic leukemia and abnormal marrow eosinophilia have been reported recently. The authors have identified an AMML patient who had a normal karyotype in 50 metaphases. In particular, chromosome 16 was closely examined for abnormality and(More)
A study was conducted to investigate whether the use of pelleted feeds might influence the incidence of ascites in broilers reared at low altitudes (730 meters above sea level). In two trials carried out under commercial conditions, broilers were fed practical-type rations from 1 day to 7 weeks of age, in either mash or pellet form. In both trials, low(More)
The eosinophilic variant of acute myelomonocytic leukemia (AMML) is highly associated with characteristic abnormalities of chromosome 16. Leukemias developing secondary to chemotherapy frequently show abnormalities of chromosomes 5 and 7. This report describes a secondary AMML, eosinophilic variant (M4Eo), developing in a patient with coexistent mycosis(More)
