A total of 112 barrows (avg BW of 72 kg) was used in a 65-d growth assay to determine the effects of adding a source of saturated fat (beef tallow) into diets with sorghum-based distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS). The pigs were sorted by ancestry and blocked by BW with seven pigs/pen and four pens/treatment. Treatments were a corn-soybean(More)
Patients with chronic cholestasis have reduced 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) and vitamin E levels. We determined serum concentrations of 25OHD, 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25(OH)2D] and vitamin E before and after oral administration of 10 micrograms/kg body weight 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (25OHD3) and 100 IU/kg body weight vitamin E, respectively, in 4 patients(More)
Magnetic induction tomography (MIT) has been suggested by several groups for the contact-less mapping of the passive electrical properties of tissues via AC magnetic fields in the frequency range between several tens of kHz and several tens of MHz. Multifrequency MIT as an analog to multifrequency EIT has been tried and first image reconstructions have been(More)
This paper introduces a simple theoretical model for the response time of thermal flow sensors. Response time is defined here as the time needed by the sensor output signal to reach 63.2% of amplitude due to a change of fluid flow. This model uses the finite-difference method to solve the heat transfer equations, taking into consideration the transient(More)
— Frequency differential magnetic induction tomo-graphy allows the reconstruction of images of relative conductivity spectra with the aid of magnetic AC fields and coil arrays. We describe a new 16-channel hardware with an analog bandwidth of 50 kHz – 1.5 MHz which covers a good part of the ß-dispersion of many tissues. At each acquisition time 8 of the 16(More)
Several reports claim that thyroid hormones and growth hormone participate in the regulation of vitamin D synthesis. We investigated whether there was a direct effect of their releasing hormones on vitamin D metabolism. TRH (7 micrograms/kg) was injected iv in 8 children with euthyroid diffuse goiter and GHRF (1 microgram/kg) in 10 short normal children.(More)
Two experiments were completed to determine the effects of diet mix uniformity and ractopamine HCl on finishing pig performance. In Exp. 1, a total of 200 pigs (BW = 90 kg) were used in a 33-d growth assay arranged in a randomized complete block design with 5 pigs/pen and 8 pens/treatment. Treatments were a corn-soybean meal-based control diet mixed for 360(More)
Idiopathic juvenile osteoporosis appears in temporal coherence with puberty leading to a reversible generalized osteoporosis of the skeletal system, spontaneous fractures and skeletal deformities. First symptoms in a 14 years old boy occurred as muscle pareses. A lymphocytic pleocytosis could be detected in cerebrospinal fluid. The next two years more than(More)
