We investigated the differences in the effect of intramammarily infused endotoxin for cows in early (EL) and late (LL) lactation. In this crossover study, nine cows were challenged twice with 100 microg of intramammarily infused Escherichia coli 0111:B4 LPS, each cow serving its own control. Systemic and local signs were recorded throughout the experiment(More)
Resistance of Staphylococcus aureus to penicillin G is common among isolates from bovine mastitis. We determined phenotypic resistance to penicillin G for 151 S. aureus isolates derived from dairy cows with intramammary infection by two methods. The methods were determination of minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) by a standard agar dilution technique(More)
Non-work related movements (NWRM) of 10 experienced industrial workers performing light repetitive work were observed under a variety of conditions. More NWRM were observed for (1) machine-paced versus self-paced operations; and (2) a task with high mental load versus one with a low mental load. In addition, the age of the worker was found to be negatively(More)
The toxicity of a harmful algal bloom is strongly determined by the relative abundance of non-toxic and toxic genotypes and might therefore be regulated by competition for growth-limiting resources. Here, we studied how the toxic Microcystis aeruginosa strain PCC 7806 and a non-toxic mutant compete for nitrogen and phosphorus under constant and pulsed(More)
PURPOSE To create a new index to help evaluate the accuracy of the outcome of refractive surgery. METHODS By combining information given by the cross-cylinder form of surgically induced refractive change (SIRC) and basic methods of vector analysis, we constructed a new index which serves as a tool to evaluate postoperatively the changes achieved by(More)
