Gliomas, the most common primary brain tumors in adults, have a poor outcome. PBN (α-phenyl-tert-butylnitrone) and OKN007 (2,4-disulfophenyl-PBN) are nitrones that have demonstrated beneficial effects in many aging diseases. In this study, we evaluated the anti-tumor effects of PBN and OKN007 in several rodent glioma models (C6, RG2, and GL261) by assessing(More)
Let s = (s 1 ; s 2 ; : : : ; s n) be a sequence of characters where s i 2 Z p for 1 i n. One measure of the complexity of the sequence s is the length of the shortest feedback shift register that will generate s, which is known as the maximum order complexity of s 17, 18]. We provide a proof that the expected length of the shortest feedback register to(More)
The death of over 300 sows in 2 months on a 3000 sow farrow-to-isowean operation in Manitoba was attributed to infection with Actinobacillus equuli. This pathogen commonly infects foals, and is rarely reported in swine. Our report is the second recently published case of this pathogen in North American swine.
In the event of a foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) outbreak in the United States, local, state, and federal authorities will implement a foreign animal disease emergency response plan restricting the pork supply chain movements and likely disrupting the continuity of the swine industry business. To minimize disruptions of the food supply while providing an(More)
Testing drugs for anti-aging effects has historically been conducted in mouse life-span studies, but are costly and time consuming, and more importantly, difficult to recapitulate in humans. In addition, life-span studies in mice are not well suited to testing drug combinations that target multiple factors involved in aging. Additional paradigms for testing(More)
A highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) outbreak in the United States will initiate a federal emergency response effort that will consist of disease control and eradication efforts, including quarantine and movement control measures. These movement control measures will not only apply to live animals but also to animal products. However, with current egg(More)
