Bovine Somatotropin (bST) is a peptide hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary gland and its recombinant form (rbST) is used for artificially boosting milk yield in cows. Identification of rbST is difficult in that there is little difference from the pituitary bST (pbST). In this work, we further studied the possibility of immunologically discriminating(More)
A study was performed to delineate bST and IGF-1 variation, over a whole lactation, in cows treated with a nowadays widely commercialised but little studied sustained release formulation of recombinant bST. Total bST levels were found to be exceptionally high in the first days after administration, but decreased rapidly in the second week after injection.(More)
Essential oils (EOs) are aromatic oily liquids extracted from different parts of specific plants, well known especially for their aromatic and antibacterial properties. Nowadays, EOs are exploited in the food sector mainly for their aromatic properties. Thanks to their antimicrobial activity, however, they could also be used as additives to increase the(More)
Recombinant bovine somatotropin (rbST) is used to increase milk yield in cows, but it has been forbidden in some countries and in the EU. However, rbST misuse represents a concern in both bovine and buffalo dairy production. A number of studies on rbST treatment have been performed on bovines, but there are few data on buffaloes. In this study, we treated(More)
The use of recombinant bovine growth hormone (rbGH) to increase milk yield in cows is banned in some countries. In others, where it is authorised, it has triggered harsh debates on labelling of dairy products. If many studies have been performed on bovines, there is a lack of information on buffaloes, which are sometimes treated with rbGH and re-present an(More)
This study focused on the expression of somatotropic axis genes in the skeletal muscle of dairy cattle. A slow-release recombinant bovine growth hormone (GH) (rbGH) formulation was administered to 5 cows, and saline solution (control) was administered to another 5 cows every 2 wk for a total of 10 wk, starting from the peak of lactation. Tissue and blood(More)
Observations of acute rejections in uremic patients transplanted with Kidney grafts from Human Leucocyte Antigens (HLA) identical or compatible donors have suggested the importance of the role play by antigens not codified by the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC). Some works detected anti-monocytes antibodies that could not be absorbed with platelets(More)
Although goat milk production represents today a very small percentage of the world milk market, this percentage has been growing continuously during the past 20 years. Goat milk is the basic milk supply in many developing countries and provides tasteful derivative products in developed countries. Goats, as well as all milk-producing animals, can be(More)
Kidney patients waiting for transplant usually undergo deliberate transfusion without clinical need in order to improve the outcome of the transplantation. Besides the beneficial transfusion effect on graft survival antibodies against the Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) can be detected after blood transfusions. Preliminary studies have shown(More)
