The hypothesis that bioactive glass particulate increases the rate of bone proliferation over that of synthetic hydroxyapatite and bioactive glass-ceramic was tested in these experiments. Three types of bioactive particles-45S5 Bioglass(R), synthetic hydroxyapatite, and A-W glass-ceramic-were implanted in 6-mm-diameter holes drilled in the femoral condyles(More)
A completely randomized design with 7 replications (n = 7, treatments = 5 with 8 subsamples per treatment) was used to evaluate the effects of feeding various levels of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS; 0, 6, 12, 18, and 24%) on broiler breast and thigh meat quality. Broilers were harvested in a pilot scale processing plant with commercial(More)
A randomized complete block design with 3 replications (n=144) was utilized to evaluate the effects of feeding distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS; 0% control and 8%) on broiler breast and thigh meat quality. Electrical stunning was performed, and broiler carcasses were scalded, picked, and eviscerated using commercial prototype equipment. At 4 h(More)
UNLABELLED Catfish fillets were injected to 115% over green weight prior to tray-packing and storage at 4 degrees C for 1, 4, 8, and 11 d. Fillets were evaluated for yields, surface color, pH, cooking loss, tenderness, purge loss, and shelf-life. All phosphate treatments increased (P < 0.05) fillet tenderness, but the agglomerated blend of sodium phosphates(More)
Sodium or potassium salts such as lactate and acetate can be used to inhibit the growth of spoilage bacteria and food-borne pathogens, and thereby prolong the shelf-life of refrigerated seafood. However, minimal information is available regarding the combined effects of potassium salts (acetate and lactate) with an agglomerated phosphate blend on the(More)
A new pulse sequence for in vivo diffusion measurements by magnetic resonance imaging is introduced. The proposed sequence employed gradient sensitization in three orthogonal directions to accentuate the effects of diffusion. The amplitudes and durations of the diffusion encoding gradients were carefully selected to achieve optimal signal-to-noise ratio in(More)
In order to investigate whether or not the summating potential (SP) and the 2f 1–f 2 distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE) are due to related cochlear non-linearities, their behavior was studied in the guinea pig after intracochlear perfusion with ouabain and subsequent rinsing. The SP was evoked with either 4 or 8 kHz tone bursts, and the 2f(More)
The measuring methods of fetal rolling movements, which are very important diagnostic informations at the case of Non Stress Test, are analysed. In normal pregnant women (from 29 to 40 gestational weeks), the observation of fetal head and trunk rolling movements by real-time B-scan, and maternal perception of fetal movements are simultaneously recorded in(More)
