Isolation of Borrelia burgdorferi, the Lyme disease spirochete, from rabbit ticks, Haemaphysalis leporispalustris--Alberta.
A live, partially engorged, female black-legged tick was removed from a dog in Kenora, 50 km east of the Manitoba border, and it was positively identified as Ixodes scapularis. Expand

First isolation of Lyme disease spirochete, Borrelia burgdorferi, from blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis, removed from a bird in nova Scotia, Canada.

Presence of spirochete causing Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, in the blacklegged tick, Ixodes scapularis, in southern Ontario.
Lyme disease, the most common tick-borne disease in North America, is a multisystemic illness of humans and domestic animals caused by the spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato ("in the broadExpand
The seroepidemiology of toxoplasmosis in the lower Fraser Valley of British Columbia.
Seroprevalence rose with increase in age but there was no significant difference between males and females, and a positive correlation was shown between ingestion of meat and between consumption of unpasteurized milk and antibodies to T gondii. Expand

Studies on radiosensitivity during the cell cycle in Oedogonium cardiacum
There is a marked increase in radiosensitivity as measured by loss of cell reproductive integrity yielding a multi-component dose response curve with at least two distinct D 0 values during the G 2 period of Oedogonium cardiacum zoospores. Expand
The purpose of this work is to determine the cell stages, namely, G1 (pre-synthesis), S (syntheses), G2 (post-syndhesis), and M (mitosis) during the first cell cycle by measuring DNA svnthesis with thymidine-2C14 and on changes in nuclear volume during the cell cycle and on the rate of DNA Svnthesis during the S period.

Radiation-induced division and mitotic delay studies in green alga (Oedogonium cardiacum).
The results obtained indicate that division and mitotic delay vary with the age of the cells at the time of irradiation, which is a linear function of dose for cells in G1, S, and G2 and is 0.10, 0.19, and 0.33 minutes/rad respectively. Expand
