Studies were conducted to evaluate the toxicity of insecticides to adult Diadegma insulare (Cresson) and its host the diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.). Leaf-dip and direct-dip bioassays for diamondback moth larvae and residual bioassays for adults of diamondback moth and D. insulare were used to assess mortalities. Larval mortalities at field(More)
The relative sensitivity of two rotating rod techniques in detecting performance decrement in rats was assessed after treatment with either ethanol or acrylamide. Performance on the rod during acceleration at approximately 1 rpm/sec (accelerod) was compared to that obtained on the same rod operated at a constant speed of 20 rpm (rotarod). Rats trained to(More)
The effects of sucralfate (6 g per day) and placebo on symptoms, endoscopic findings, and gastric mucosal histology were compared in 23 patients with symptoms of alkaline reflux gastritis who had undergone Billroth I, Billroth II, or vagotomy and pyloroplasty. Patients were randomly assigned to receive sucralfate (n = 11) or placebo (n = 12) for six weeks.(More)
BACKGROUND Dogs with a chronic enteropathy (CE) have a lower vitamin D status, than do healthy dogs. Vitamin D status has been associated with a negative clinical outcome in humans with inflammatory bowel disease. OBJECTIVES To examine the relationship between serum 25 hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentrations at diagnosis and clinical outcome in dogs(More)
BACKGROUND Benign urethral obstructions (BUO) in dogs result in substantial morbidity because of challenges with conventional therapies. Treatment of malignant urethral obstructions with intraluminal urethral stents is reported to successfully relieve obstructions. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES To evaluate the efficacy and outcome of urethral stent placement for(More)
BACKGROUND Tramadol is a centrally acting analgesic that is often used in conjunction with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). The effect of coadministration of tramadol and indomethacin on gastric barrier function in dogs is unknown. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES That coadministration of a nonselective NSAID (indomethacin) and tramadol would decrease(More)

Propylene glycol dinitrate (PGDN), a major constituent of a liquid torpedo propellant, produces incoordination and impairment of balance in humans. This study was conducted to evaluate the rat as a model for PGDN-induced motor performance decrement, and to determine if direct application of PGDN onto neural tissue is a useful alternative to other routes of(More)
