This study was carried out to compare key haematological features of diploid (2n) and triploid (3n) turbot as a first step towards the assessment of the ability of 3n turbot to withstand sub-optimal culture conditions. Morphometric indices of erythrocytes were determined on blood smears by light microscopy. Triploidy significantly (P<0.001) increased all(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the prevalence of breastfeeding and overweight in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), and the relationship between the two. DESIGN AND METHODS A random cluster survey of 420 children (aged 6 months to 10 years), was conducted in the CNMI in June and July of 2005. Children were measured for weight and height and(More)
We describe the bufonid gastromyzophorous tadpoles of Rhinella quechua from montane forest streams in Bolivia. Specimens were cleared and stained, and the external morphology, buccopharyngeal structures, and the musculoskeletal system were studied. These tadpoles show a combination of some traits common in Rhinella larvae (e.g., emarginate oral disc with(More)
Children in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands have been shown to have nutrient deficiencies, but data were estimated from a non-population-based sample. The current study is a cross-sectional assessment of 420 Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands children, 6 months to 10 years old. Diet, height, and weight were measured. Dietary(More)
Two experiments were performed to assess viral inactivation during the crosslinking and heat treatment steps of the DCLHb manufacturing process. Stroma free hemoglobin (SFHb) collected from a large scale manufacturing lot was tested in a 1:680 scaled down system in which the key parameters used in the manufacturing process were replicated. In the first(More)
To measure insensible fluid loss from silicone membrane oxygenators during extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), an in vitro system was used. A standard neonatal ECMO circuit (Avecor) was connected to a noncompliant reservoir, which was then primed with normal saline. The experiment was conducted by using two silicone oxygenators (Avecor 0.4 and 0.8(More)
A series of experiments was performed to assess the ability of the heat treatment step used in the manufacture of diaspirin crosslinked hemoglobin (DCLHb) to inactivate viruses. In-process solutions (reaction mixtures after the crosslinking process) from six different manufacturing lots were used as test media in a 1:680 scaled down system in which the key(More)
Virus retention during ultrafiltration through A/G Technology filter cartridges was investigated to characterize the removal process and validate the degree of virus titre reduction during the filtration of red blood cell haemolysates performed as part of the production of diaspirin crosslinked haemoglobin (DCLHb). When viruses were suspended in phosphate(More)
