Fourteen male cross-bred Alpine x Saanen kids were infected with Teladorsagia circumcincta and four were used as controls. Three different levels of susceptibility to infection were apparent: resistant to infection and resilient to its adverse effects; intermediate (poorly resistant and poorly resilient); susceptible and relatively resilient. In the(More)
We study generalised magnetic Schrödinger operators of the form H h (A, V) = h(Π A) + V , where h is an elliptic symbol, Π A = −i∇ − A, with A a vector potential defining a variable magnetic field B, and V is a scalar potential. We are mainly interested in anisotropic functions B and V. The first step is to show that these operators are affiliated to(More)
In the framework of one dimensional potential scattering we prove that, modulo a compact term, the wave operators can be written in terms of a universal operator and of the scattering operator. The universal operator is related to the one dimensional Hilbert transform and can be expressed as a function of the generator of dilations. As a consequence, we(More)
The aim of this study was to determine how n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFAs) counteracted tumor chemoresistance by restoring a functional vascularization. Rats with chemically induced mammary tumors were divided into two nutritional groups: a control group and a group fed with an n-3 PUFA-enriched diet. Both groups were treated with docetaxel.(More)
OBJECTIVES Gadolinium complexes are not considered to be a drug class at high risk for prolonging cardiac repolarization, which can lead to potentially life-threatening arrhythmias such as torsade de pointes. However, only limited robust data are available on these compounds despite their extensive use as contrast enhancers in magnetic resonance imaging. We(More)
The relationship between high fish consumption and low mortality following coronary heart disease (CHD) and low incidence of breast cancer was first mentioned 3 decades ago. The fishes of interest are rich in omega-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 LC-PUFAs), especially eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which could(More)
Drugs that prolong the QT interval by blocking human ether-a-go-go (HERG) channels may enhance the risk of ventricular arrhythmia. The spasmolytic drug propiverine is widely used for the therapy of overactive bladder (OAB). Here, we have investigated the effects of propiverine on cardiac ion channels and action potentials as well as on contractile(More)
New ultrasound parameters, potentially predictive of tumor response to chemotherapy, were sought after analyzing details of vascular architecture of mammary tumors during chemotherapy. Tumor-bearing rats were separated into untreated or docetaxel-treated group (6 mg/kg/week). Power Doppler Index and vascular contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) reference(More)
