Seven clinically-healthy men ranging in age from 21 to 25 years participated in this study. Urine samples were collected at 3 hr intervals over a single 24 hr span. Urines were pooled by using 20% of the total volume collected from each subject over a 3 hr collection span. The resulting 8 pools were analyzed for pH, specific gravity, osmolality, urea N,(More)
We tested the cytokinesis-block micronucleus cytome assay using the WIL2-NS human B lymphoblastoid cell line as a biomarker of genotoxicity and cytotoxicity of cecal water from rats and fecal water from humans. Cecal water was assessed in rats fed either a diet rich in fat, low in calcium and fiber, and barbecued red meat as the protein source (high(More)
To evaluate the effectiveness of heparin and heparin fractions in decreasing abscess formation, rats were divided into six groups. A fibrin clot containing 10(9) live Escherichia coli was placed in the peritoneal cavity of each rat. Group 1 (controls) received daily subcutaneous (SQ) injections of 0.1 mL of saline solution. Group 2 received daily(More)
