Ovaries of 17 adult, pleuriparous, and lactating one-humped she-camels (Camelus dromedarius) were examined per rectum for uterine involution and for presence of follicles (>/=1.0 cm diameter) by real-time ultrasonography at the National Research Centre on Camel at Bikaner, India at 30, 45, 60, 75, and 90 days postpartum. Involution was completed from 25 to(More)
Collection of semen with a bovine artificial vagina (AV) was attempted with each of 14 camels over a period of 2 years. Semen samples were evaluated, extended and cryopreserved. Frozen thawed semen, diluted cooled semen or whole semen was used to inseminate some female camels which were induced to ovulate with hCG. Males ejaculated semen into the AV in(More)
The present study reviews the course of lupus nephritis (LN) with the added complication of neuropsychiatric systemic lupus erythematosus (NPSLE) in a predominantly African-American population in order to identify the risk factors accounting for the increased morbidity and mortality in African-American children. Previous studies, including those at our(More)
Superovulation, embryo recovery and transfer were attempted in 19 dromedary camels of about 6–10 years of age, and having calved at least once. Superovulation was done using two commercially available porcine FSH preparations, FSH-I (11 donors) and FSH-2 (8 donors) during a luteal phase created by inducing ovulation with hCG. The superovulatory response was(More)
An artificial insemination study was conducted on 17 female camels which were administered human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG) to induce ovulation after confirming a follicle in the ovaries using sonography. The animals were inseminated with either diluted-cooled or fresh undiluted semen. No female camel could be impregnated with diluted and cooled semen,(More)
Semen was collected from six dromedary camels using artificial vagina during rutting season. Liquefaction of the viscous semen occurred in 23.89 ± 1.49 h. During liquefaction, proteins with molecular masses of 24.55 kDa and 22.07 kDa appeared in conjunction with the disappearance of intact 26.00 kDa protein after 18-24 h. These proteins were identified as(More)
Sir, Recently, Rajan et al. reported a case of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) with bulbar symptoms (Q J Med 2013; 106:875–6). Although not labelled, the authors describe focal hyperintensities on axial T2-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the lower pons and assert that these are located ‘in the region of facial nerve nuclei bilaterally’.(More)
Ovaries of 16 adult pleuriparous, non-pregnant and non-lactating one humped female camels (Camelus dromedarius) belonging to National Research Centre on Camel, at Bikaner, India, were examined for the presence of follicular activity (< or = 0.5 cm diameter) using real-time ultrasonography during June-August, which is considered to be non-breeding season in(More)
