Experimental maintenance of Dirofilaria repens and D. immitis in dogs.
A Sardinian strain of Dirofilaria repens has been maintained in the laboratory for 6 years during which time 13 dogs have been infected during 3 passages, and microfilariae appeared in the blood of the two recipient dogs after 5–6 days, and increased progressively in number.
Interactions of amino acids in renal tubular transport.
There is, however, minor reabsorptive competition between these amino acids and certain others, suggesting that the mechanisms are not completely specific.
Fine structure of mammalian renal cilia
It is hypothesized that these cilia of the nephrons of rat and human kidneys may be vestigial, and may, if motile, have some minor stirring function, or they may play a sensory role, as has been postulated for similarly structured cilia in other sites.

The effects of intravenous infusions of a variety of neutral and acidic amino acids on the plasma concentrations and excretions of naturally occurring amino acids were studied in dogs. Conventional...

There appears to be a specialized mechanism for acidic amino acid transport which probably requires all three functional groups but which may be interfered with by a compound with a neutral side chain.
Changes in salt and water distribution, blood pressure, and adrenal activity following neurohypophyseal denervation in the rat.
Diabetes insipidus was induced by stereotaxic placement of a small lesion in the supraopticohypophyseal tract at the median eminence of the hypothalamus and was followed also by a reduction in gonadotrophic activity as indicated by a marked reduction in testis size.
A light and transmission electron-microscopic study of the rat iris in pupillary dilation and constriction.
Abstract Adult rat pupils were dilated with a mixture of 5% phenylephrine hydrochloride and 0·5% cyclopentolate, or constricted with 0·125% echothiophate iodide. The iris tissues were then prepared
The Great Canadian Physician Exodus
Research on Physician immigration and emigration patterns over the last 25 years provides a backdrop to an examiniation of policy issues raised by physician supply, such as immigration, federal-provincial jurisdictions, and individual rights.
