In the present paper, we report data on the possible genotoxic properties of two inhalation anaesthetics--sevoflurane (SVF) and isoflurane (ISF) - in peripheral blood lymphocytes of patients before, during and after anaesthesia as compared to an unexposed control group. Both anaesthetics were evaluated for genotoxic activity using the comet assay. The(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of different dietary protein levels on the biochemical and production parameters of ostriches. Eighteen adult, eight-year-old ostriches (Struthio camelus) (six male and twelve female) were studied. For the experiment the ostriches were randomly divided into two groups of 3 breeding pairs each (one male(More)
The study was conducted to determine the effects of dietary supplementation rosemary aromatic plant, rosemary volatile oil and α-tocopherol acetate (Vitamin E) on serum variables of broilers fed on maize-soybean meal based diets. Eight hundred 1-d-old Ross-308 male chickens were weighed and randomly divided into 1 control and 7 experimental groups each with(More)
Blood plasma contains a complex mixture of proteins with widely different structures and properties. Relative and total amounts of serum protein fractions are affected by nutritional, physiological status, infections and inflammation, and are therefore important health indicators. The occurrence of considerable species differences to the overall(More)
The aim of this study was to determine for reference purposes the values of serum albumin, alpha 1-globulin, alpha 2-globulin, beta-globulin, gamma-globulin, and alpha-lipoprotein (high density lipoprotein), pre-beta-lipoprotein (very low density lipoprotein) and beta-lipoprotein (low density lipoprotein) fractions of normal ostriches (Struthio camelus) in(More)
The aim of this experiment was to investigate the effects of partial replacement of corn silage with long alfalfa hay and/or coarse chopped wheat straw on biochemical parameters in late lactating Holstein primiparous dairy cows. Twelve late lactating Holstein primiparous cows including four cows equipped with a rumen cannula, averaging 210 ± 20 days in milk(More)
The effects of vitamin A, pentoxyfylline and methylprednisolone on experimentally induced amyloid arthropathy were investigated. In this study, 175 1-day-old brown layer chicks were used. Throughout the study Group II (vitamin A) received high doses of vitamin A (75,000 IU/kg), whereas Group I (negative control), Group III (positive control), Group IV(More)
