The effects of shot wounds on the hygienic conditions of pheasants (particularly those in the body cavity) were studied. Slaughtered (n = 33) and hunted pheasants (31 specimens with, and 33 specimens without shots in the body cavity) were stored uneviscerated at 0 and 4 degrees C. Specimens were taken at d 0, 3, 7, and 14. Hunted pheasants differed from(More)
BACKGROUND Roflumilast is an oral, once-daily phosphodiesterase 4 inhibitor with anti-inflammatory activity in development for the treatment of asthma. Roflumilast was compared with inhaled beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) in patients with asthma. METHODS In a double blind, double-dummy, randomized, noninferiority study, 499 patients (forced expiratory(More)
Bulky extramedullary hematopoiesis, usually detected in the thorax by imaging techniques, is a well-known complication in many types of congenital anemias. Here, we describe 12 cases of congenital dyserythropoietic anemia with extramedullary hematopoiesis which was always located in the paravertebral space of the thoracic spine and in other paraspinal(More)
BACKGROUND The central role of chronic inflammation of the airways in asthma pathogenesis is supported by the efficacy of corticosteroids in controlling clinical symptoms. However, the search continues for potentially safer anti-inflammatory alternatives. Roflumilast is an oral, once-daily phosphodiesterase type 4 inhibitor with anti-inflammatory activity(More)
BACKGROUND Olodaterol is a long-acting β2-agonist with a 24-hour bronchodilator profile. Two replicate, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, Phase III trials were performed as part of a comprehensive clinical program to investigate the long-term safety and efficacy of olodaterol in patients with moderate to very severe chronic(More)
The aim of this study was to compare wild boar (chromosomal number 2n=36) to phenotypically similar animals of 2n=37 and 2n=38 chromosomes (crossbreeds) with respect to live weight, carcass yield, meat yield, fat and weight of inner organs. All animals were born and raised on the same farm and slaughtered at 39 weeks. The final live weight of wild boar(More)
Beef has a requirement for refrigerated storage up to 14 d to achieve adequate aging and a tender product. To achieve this aging with little spoilage and no surface drying, vacuum packaging is attractive, because it is inherently simple and offers a clear indication to the packer when the process has failed or there is risk of spoilage. However, there is(More)
The objective of this study was to compare the long-term safety of a fixed combination of fenoterol hydrobromide (50 microg) and ipratropium bromide (20 microg) delivered using a metered dose inhaler (MDI) formulated with a non-chlorinated propellant, hydrofluoroalkanel34a (HFA-MDI), with delivery using the conventional chlorofluorocarbon propellant(More)
A multi-purpose heating attachment designed primarily for X-ray four-circle diffractometers but applicable also for classical powder diffraction is presented. When working in re ̄ection geometry, the air-cooled heating stage allows diffraction studies to be performed on plate-like samples up to 1173 K in the whole orientation space. This paper gives a(More)
