Although the essentiality of dietary Se for sheep has been known for decades, the chemical source and Se dosage for optimal health remain unclear. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates Se supplementation, regardless of the source of Se, at 0.3 mg of Se/kg of diet (as fed), which is equivalent to 0.7 mg of Se/d or 4.9 mg of(More)
An important step in image processing tasks involves the identiication of certain desired attributes in an image. Traditionally, this is done by transforming the image into a domain where the desired attributes or features are easily identiiable. In this paper, we discuss the parallel implementation of one such image transform{the 2-D Gabor based Wavelet(More)
Adequate Se transfer from ewes to lambs is important to prevent Se-deficiency diseases. To evaluate how different chemical forms of Se administered at comparative dosages to mature ewes affect Se status of their lambs, 240 ewes were divided into 8 treatment groups (n = 30 each) and drenched weekly (at an amount equal to their summed daily intake) with no-Se(More)
The performance of single and multielement Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode (GM-APD) devices are investigated as a function of the detector's reset or dead time. The theoretical results, developed herein, capture the effects of both quantum fluctuations and speckle noise and are shown to agree with Monte Carlo simulation measurements. First, a theory for(More)
AIMS To assess the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profile of the novel PDE4 inhibitor V11294A (3-(3-cyclopentyloxy-4-methoxybenzyl)-6-ethylamino-8-isopropyl-3H purine hydrochloride) in healthy male volunteers. METHODS This was a double-blind, single dose, randomized crossover study in eight healthy volunteers who received a single oral, fasting dose(More)
Because of suspicious or abnormal smears, 620 patients were referred to the Colposcopy Clinic of the British Columbia Cancer Institute between 1st March 1973 and 31st December 1974; it was possible to make a colposcopic examination in 549 of these patients (88.5 per cent). The colposcopic impression was within one histological grade of a(More)
BACKGROUND Most chemotherapeutics reduce bone mineral density (BMD) and increase risk for fractures by causing gonadal suppression, which in turn increases bone removal. Cyclophosphamide (CYP) also has a direct effect of inhibiting bone formation and removal, making the resulting bone loss particularly difficult to treat with antiresorptive therapy. AIM(More)
