OBJECTIVES The aims of this study were to identify the active ingredients from Portulaca oleracea L. (PO) that could provide synergism with antibiotics against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and their possible mechanisms of resistance inhibition. METHODS High-speed counter-current chromatography (HSCCC) coupled with gas(More)
To investigate what factors lead to rapid postnatal tissue growth and functional maturation in the newborn intestine, we compared intestinal tissue mass and digestive enzyme activities between newborn unsuckled piglets and piglets bottle fed for 3 days with either 5% lactose solution, intact porcine colostrum or trypsinized porcine colostrum. Bottle feeding(More)
To determine if milk-borne insulinlike growth factor-I (IGF-I) is absorbed in neonatal piglets, recombinant human IGF-I was iodinated and then administered via an oral-gastric tube to newborn and 3-day-old piglets together with fluorescent isothiocyanate dextran (FITC-D70s, a macromolecular marker for assessment of gut closure). Results showed that total(More)
