Faecal corticosteroid levels were measured in five female tammar wallabies, Macropus eugenii, at Macquarie University, NSW, Australia, to assess their reliability as indicators of well-being in this species. Animals were challenged with a change in conditions over the course of approximately 1 week, comprising movement from group yards to isolation in(More)
Serum cortisol levels were measured in a total of 73 tammar wallabies maintained in a captive population at Macquarie University, NSW, Australia. Previous studies of corticosteroids in marsupials have generally involved low sample numbers, a diverse array of analytical techniques, and a variety of sampling conditions. We have conducted a substantive,(More)
The mechanism behind the beneficial effects of enteral nutrition (EN) for patients with acute pancreatitis (AP) is largely unknown.

Patients with AP were randomised to EN or(More)
Serum corticosteroid levels were measured in six female tammar wallabies (Macropus eugenii) at Macquarie University, NSW, Australia, to assess their reliability as indicators of wellbeing in this species. Animals were challenged with a change in conditions over the course of approximately 3 weeks, comprising (i) isolation and movement; (ii) altered feeding(More)
