The Health Utilities Index is a generic multiattribute preference-based system for assessing health-related quality of life, devised by Torrance et al. It is being used in cost-effectiveness evaluations in North America and in international multicentre studies but was not available in France. Following adaptation of the HUI3 classification in France, the(More)
The aim of this study was to determine whether lymphocyte apoptosis is modulated by infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus uberis. Samples of cell populations were obtained by lavage of the mammary glands at 4 intervals (24, 48, 72 and 168 h) following infection. The percentage of apoptotic lymphocytes peaked at 168 h after challenge(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of molds on levels of low molecular mass thiols in grasses. For this purpose, the three grass species Lolium perenne, Festulolium pabulare and Festulolium braunii were cultivated and sampled during four months, from June to September. The same species were also grown under controlled conditions.(More)
In the production of fermented feed, each crop can be contaminated with a variety of microorganisms that may produce natural pollutants. Biogenic amines, mycotoxins, and undesirable organic acids can decrease health feed safety. The aim of this study was to compare the counts of microorganisms, levels of biogenic amines, and the mycotoxins in forage(More)
The objective of this in vitro study was to examine dose-dependent changes in the secretion activity [progesterone (P4) and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I)] of porcine ovarian granulosa cells after experimental mercury (Hg) administration, including its apoptotic potential so as to ascertain the possible involvement of Hg in steroidogenesis. Ovarian(More)
The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of selected temperatures on viability (apoptosis and necrosis) of bovine blood neutrophil granulocytes (neutrophils) in vitro. The following temperatures were tested: -80, -20, 4, 23, 37 degrees C. Heparinised bovine blood was incubated for 1, 4 and 24 h under respective temperature. Apoptosis and necrosis of(More)
