Billroth II gastrojejunostomy was performed with surgical staplers in 6 dogs that were not irradiated and in 11 dogs that subsequently received radiation to the pancreas and proximal part of the duodenum. The dogs were monitored clinically for 135 days and then euthanatized and necropsied. Each gastrojejunostomy site was preserved in formalin and the stomal(More)
Three groups of bitches were treated with diethylstilbestrol (75 micrograms/kg) orally for 7 days (n = 12), estradiol cypionate intramuscularly once (22 micrograms/kg; n = 12), or estradiol cypionate intramuscularly once (44 micrograms/kg; n = 12). Treatments commenced during late proestrus (n = 4/group), the fourth day of behavioral estrus (n = 4/group),(More)
The tremendous growth in wireless LANs has generated interest in technologies that provide higher data rates and greater system capacities. The IEEE 802.11a [1] standard, based on coded OFDM modulation [2,3], provides nearly five times the data rate and as much as ten times the overall system capacity as current 802.11b wireless LAN systems.

The pancreas and duodenum of 24 beagle dogs were given intraoperative irradiation (IORT) with 6 MeV electrons. The dose range was 17.5 Gy to 40 Gy. Billroth II gastrojejunostomy was performed on all dogs prior to irradiation. Six control dogs received only Billroth II surgery. Starting 2 weeks after surgery, dogs in the irradiation groups were given 50 Gy 6(More)
Significant levels of antibodies indicative of a variety of zoonotic infections were demonstrated in sera collected from 64 U.S. military scout and tracker dogs after service in the Republic of Vietnam (RVN). Scrub typhus antibodies were found in 45% of the specimens, melioidosis in 19%, group B arbovirus in 49%, and leptospirosis in 62%. Only 38% of the(More)
Twenty-four beagles received intraoperative irradiation (IORT) with 6 meV electrons to the pancreas and the duodenum. Intraoperative irradiation doses of 17.5 to 40 Gy were given. Billroth II gastrojejunostomy was done to bypass the irradiated duodenum. Six control dogs received only the Billroth II surgery. Two weeks postoperatively, irradiated dogs were(More)
Of 6 cats with salmonellosis, only cats 1, 4, and 5 manifested clinical signs of gastroenteritis. In cats 2 to 5, salmonellosis was characterized by fever, a left-shifted leukogram, and vague nonspecific signs of illness. Salmonellae were isolated from blood and feces of cats 1 to 4, and from extraintestinal sites as part of a mixed gram-negative bacterial(More)
Response to thyrotropin (TSH) was evaluated in 2 groups of mixed-breed dogs. Thyrotropin (5 IU) was administered IV to dogs in group 1 (n = 15) and IM to dogs in group 2 (n = 15). Venous blood samples were collected immediately before administration of TSH and at 2-hour intervals for 12 hours thereafter. In group 1, the maximum mean concentration (+/- SD)(More)
