Artificial insemination is widely used in the cattle industry and a major challenge is to ensure that semen is free of infectious agents. A healthy donor bull was tested for freedom from infectious agents. A bovine herpesvirus was isolated in testis cells and identified as bovine herpesvirus type 5 (BoHV-5) by polymerase chain reaction and by direct(More)
DNA typing techniques are among the most advanced tools for human identification and can contribute to the identification of poorly preserved skeletal remains. Ten thousand people are thought to have been killed during the last dictatorship in Argentina (1976-1983) and there are few official records on the identity of the victims or the location of burials.(More)
Chronic inflammation has been associated with increased risk for developing gastrointestinal cancer. Interleukin-23 (IL-23) receptor signaling has been correlated with inflammatory bowel disease pathogenesis, as well as promotion of tumor growth. However, little is known about the relative potential for IL-23-directed causality in gut tumorigenesis. We(More)
The metabolism and disposition of calcimimetic agent cinacalcet HCl was examined after a single oral administration to mice, rats, monkeys, and human volunteers. In all species examined, cinacalcet was well absorbed, with greater than 74% oral bioavailability of cinacalcet-derived radioactivity in monkeys and humans. In rats, cinacalcet-derived(More)
A series of beta-sulfonamide piperidine hydroxamates were prepared and shown to be potent inhibitors of the human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER-2) sheddase with excellent selectivity against MMP-1, -2, -3, and -9. This was achieved by exploiting subtle differences within the otherwise highly conserved S(1)(') binding pocket of the active sites(More)
Rather than take part in realigning the way health care is delivered, organized nursing has opted to stonewall change. But if nurses proactively participate in the process, they can be in on the decisions that will shape our new health care structure.
