A collaborative European study of personal inhalable aerosol sampler performance.
The sampler performance data obtained in this project were affected by large experimental errors, but are nevertheless a useful input to decisions on how to incorporate the CEN inhalable sampling convention into regulation, guidance and occupational hygiene practice. Expand
Aerosol inhalability in low air movement environments
Abstract Work has been carried out in two laboratories to consider the requirement of extending the definition of inhalability into low air movement environments, typical of many modern workplacesExpand
The sampling efficiency of personal inhalable aerosol samplers in low air movement environments
Abstract Experimental systems were developed in two laboratories for measuring the sampling efficiency of personal inhalable aerosol samplers in low air movement environments, using sedimentingExpand

The results presented in this paper indicate that delayed implantation in the roe deer is due to a lack of certain essential factors which are needed to induce and support the process ofembryonicExpand
Protective effect of antioxidants on the impairment of sperm motility by activated polymorphonuclear leukocytes.
Antioxidants can protect against the damaging effect of leukocyte-derived reactive oxygen species on sperm movement and may be of clinical value in assisted conception procedures. Expand

  • 29 November 2005
The possible origins of oxidative damage to human spermatozoa are considered and the important contribution such stress might make to the origins of genetic disease in the authors' species is reflected. Expand
Use of patches and whole body sampling for the assessment of dermal exposure.
The principles underlying patch and whole body sampling are detailed and some of the advantages and disadvantages of each are outlined and suggestions are made as to how these techniques may be made more relevant and areas of future research highlighted. Expand
Seeds of concern
Fears about environmental threats to human health have centred on the possible induction of cancers, but risks to the male germ line, both real and potential, are also causing disquiet. Expand
Integrating new tests of sperm genetic integrity into semen analysis: breakout group discussion.
The need for improved sperm biomarkers of adverse reproductive effects is discussed and it is concluded that sensitive, reliable, and practical methods are needed. Expand
Detection of Ehrlichia platys in dogs in Australia.
This study reports for the first time Ehrlichia carriage by dogs in Australia and indicates the usefulness of the PCR technique in rapidly and accurately identifying diseases that are otherwise difficult to detect. Expand
