We evaluated the hypothesis that venous congestion (increased venous volume), as reflected by venous hypertension (increased venous pressure), can arise when the right ventricle is unable to elevate the pulmonary arterial pressure sufficiently to propel the cardiac output through an anatomically inadequate or inappropriately constricted pulmonary(More)
Experiments were conducted to determine effects of Santoquin (ethoxyquin) and oxidized fat on liver and intestinal reduced (GSH) and oxidized (GSSG) glutathione, and pulmonary hypertension syndrome (PHS) mortality. Male broilers were randomly assigned in a 2 x 2 factorial consisting of 3.5% normal (NF) or oxidized (OxF) fat with or without ethoxyquin (E).(More)
Cyber-attacks against Smart Grids have been found in the real world. Malware such as Havex and BlackEnergy have been found targeting industrial control systems (ICS) and researchers have shown that cyber-attacks can exploit vulnerabilities in widely used Smart Grid communication standards. This paper addresses a deep investigation of attacks against the(More)
Experiments were designed to determine the effects of glutathione (GSH) depletion with L-buthionine sulfoximine (BSO) or diethyl maleate (DEM) on tissue and plasma prostacyclin (6-keto-PGF1 alpha) and thromboxane (TxB2) levels in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Despite depleting hepatic GSH to as much as 34% of control, BSO at various levels (0.4, 0.8 and 1.2(More)
Bolus i.v. injections of 1.2 N HCl elicit a rapid but transient pulmonary vasoconstriction in broiler chickens. In mammals, the pulmonary vasoconstrictive response to bolus acid injection depends on increased synthesis of thromboxane A2; however, the vascular responsiveness of domestic fowl to thromboxane previously had not been evaluated. In the present(More)
Domestic fowl kidneys autoregulate total renal blood flow and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) over a wide range of renal arterial perfusion pressure (RAPP). Sustained (approximately 2-4 h) restriction of renal portal blood flow attenuates the autoregulatory responses. The present study was designed to assess the effects of acute (approximately 10 min)(More)
This paper investigates cyber attacks on ICS which rely on IEC 60870-5-104 for telecontrol communications. The main focus of the paper is on man-in-the-middle attacks, covering modification and injection of commands, it also details capture and replay attacks. An initial set of attacks are preformed on a local software simulated laboratory. Final(More)
