The aim of the present study was to induce ovarian cysts experimentally in cattle using ACTH and to closely examine the role of LH pulse frequency in ovarian cyst formation. Five regularly cycling Holstein-Friesian heifers (15-18-month-old) were used. Ovaries were scanned daily using an ultrasound scanner with a 7.5 MHz rectal transducer. Daily blood(More)
A total of 54 Holstein-Friesian cows (13 primiparous and 41 multiparous) was used to study maternal plasma oestrone sulphate (E1S) during pregnancy and its relationship to birth weight and viability of calves and time required for placental expulsion after calving. Plasma samples were obtained from the tail vein of cows once every month from days 90 to 180,(More)
Thirteen primiparous and 41 multiparous Holstein-Friesian cattle were used to study the relationship between maternal plasma progesterone (P4) and estrone sulfate (E1S) concentrations and the prevalence of dystocia. The calvings in 4 heifers and 30 cows were normal (eutocia), while the calvings in 9 heifers and 11 cows were difficult (dystocia). Neither the(More)
The aim of the present study was to examine the LH response to exogenous estradiol in 4 heifers with ACTH-induced ovarian follicular cysts. During the control experiment, administration of estradiol 24 hr after PGF2alpha in luteal phase heifers resulted in a LH response in all 4 heifers. The LH response was obtained between 16-20 hr after estradiol(More)
Results of observation showed that the female gametophyte of Ginkgo biloba was at the coenocytic stage from March 30ty to May 30ty. A density of 6-8 x 10(5) protoplasts/ml with a viability of 87.3% was achieved when the female gametopytes collected from May 8th to 15th were treated with 0.5% cellulase Onzuka R-10, 0.5% Pectolyase for 4-5 hours. The(More)
We read an article written by Wolley et al. with interest. We found that treatment of primary aldosteronism by adrenalectomy or aldosterone antagonists was associated with a reduction in the severity of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Although resistant hypertension (RH) is highly prevalent in patients with OSA and hyperaldosteronism, the authors did not(More)
