The in situ freezing technique has been widely used to fix labile metabolites and cellular second messengers in cerebral cortex. In this study, we isolated specific brain regions at 0 degree C from coronal sections of frozen heads following in situ brain freezing and measured regional concentrations of labile metabolites and cellular messengers. These(More)
A neurological disease of cattle (maldronksiekte), occurring in a localized area of the Northern Transvaal, was experimentally reproduced by feeding Solanum kwebense plants to cattle. The disease is characterized by temporary loss of balance and transient epileptiform seizures precipitated by a variety of stimuli, such as exercise, handling (dipping,(More)
A selection of the potential risks and benefits to be gained from the concurrent use of anti-inflammatory corticosteroids and antimicrobial agents in the treatment of infectious disease processes in large animals is reviewed. Although this form of combination therapy appears to be rational, there is cause for serious concern. Precautions and guidelines are(More)
Dispositions of caffeine and antipyrine were compared as indicators of decreasing hepatic function in dogs with experimentally induced progressive liver disease. Dimethylnitrosamine, a hepatospecific toxin, was administered orally to 16 dogs; 6 dogs served as controls (group 1). Three classes of liver disease were defined by histologic features: mild (group(More)
Peroxisome proliferators have been suggested to induce liver carcinogenesis as a result of increased peroxisomal hydrogen peroxide production and cellular oxidative stress. Primary monolayer cultures of hepatocytes isolated from male F344 rats were incubated in medium containing one of three different peroxisome proliferators and examined for the induction(More)
Disposition kinetics of indocyanine green (ICG) were used to evaluate hepatic function in healthy Beagles (group 1; n = 6) and Beagles with progressive hepatic disease induced by oral administration of dimethylnitrosamine, a hepatospecific toxin. Three classes of hepatic disease were defined by histologic features: mild (group 2; n = 5), moderate (group 3;(More)
A model of toxin-induced progressive hepatitis is described in Beagles. The toxin, dimethylnitrosamine, was administered orally to 18 Beagles; 6 dogs comprised a control group. Clinical signs and laboratory test results were monitored as disease progressed and were used to determine the end point of disease. Following euthanasia, histologic lesions were(More)
