The objective of Experiment 1 was to compare the effects of estradiol benzoate (EB) given 0 or 24h after the end of a progestagen treatment on ovulation and CL formation in anestrous cows. Twenty cows were treated with an intravaginal sponge containing 250 mg of medroxiprogesterone acetate (MPA). At sponge insertion, each cow received 3 mg EB and 10 mg MPA(More)
Three experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of estradiol cypionate (ECP) and amount of progesterone in the intravaginal device (PID) on synchronization of estrus and ovulation, follicular dynamics, luteal dynamics and function and on pregnancy rate in beef cows treated with fixed-time artificial insemination (FTAI) based protocols. In Experiment(More)
A series of antitumor triazenes in which the members of the series are physicochemically distinct was designed using the cluster analysis approach as proposed by Hansch and his co-workers. The series that resulted was tested against Sarcoma 180 in the mouse and the antitumor activities were analyzed using regression techniques. The structure-activity(More)
Embryo development depends on maternal and embryonic factors. When occurs in vitro, embryos secrete factors that stimulate their development. The purpose of this study was to investigate the possible effects of embryos at morula stage on mouse embryo development in vitro. To obtain conditioned media (CM), morulas were cultured in groups of 5 (CM5) or 10(More)
Previous research from our laboratory in beef cattle suggests that the pre-ovulatory follicle size, maturity and subsequent susceptibility to gonadotropin are influenced by the length of progestagen treatment in artificial insemination programme in beef cows. To test this hypothesis, two experiments were conducted. In experiment 1, 35 anoestrous beef cows(More)
The objective of the present work was to characterize the in vivo cleavage stage of Myocastor coypus embryos. For this purpose a colpocytological follow-up and controlled mating of 18 females were performed. Specimens from the beginning of the first cleavage to the acquisition of a morula appearance were considered to be in cleavage stage. Embryos in(More)
Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effect of different ovulation inducers on E-17β plasma concentrations, synchronized ovulations and pregnancy rates. In Experiment 1, cows received a progesterone intravaginal device (PID) with 1 g of progesterone (P4) plus 2 mg of estradiol benzoate (EB) (day 0). At PID removal (day 8), cows received 0.150 mg(More)
The purpose of the present study was to determine the chronology of the pre-implantation embryonic development in Myocastor coypus (coypu). It was carried out by daily colpocytological examination and controlled mating of 33 females. Oocytes and embryos were obtained by flushing from day 0 to day 10 post-coitus (p.c.). On day 1 p.c., oocytes predominated(More)
To determine a dose of progesterone (P4) that allow ovarian follicular wave control, Aberdeen Angus cows were randomly assigned into four groups: T600 (n=5), 600 mg of P4/day; T400 (n=5), 400 mg of P4/day; T200 (n=4), 200mg of P4/day and Control (n=4) (excipient only). Progesterone was injected from day 3 to 9 of estrous cycle. Ultrasonographies and blood(More)
This study was designed to evaluate in suckling early pregnant beef cows with and without eCG-pre-stimulation: (i) the influence of day gestation (from 40 to 101 days) and the consecutive eCG treatments on the follicular growth induced by means of ultrasound-guided transvaginal follicle ablation (FA; all follicles ≥ 5 mm) and the number and quality oocytes(More)
