A rapid single-step procedure for isolation of equine neutrophils (PMNS) from peripheral blood is described. A discontinuous gradient of two Percoll solutions (densities of 1.087 kg litre-1 and 1.108 kg litre-1 was used. The PMNS were isolated to more than 95 per cent purity with a viability of more than 99 per cent and a cell recovery of more than 83 per(More)
Milk and plasma samples were obtained every 48 hours from eight pony mares for 40 days after foaling. Progestogen concentrations in milk and plasma were measured using an enzyme-linked immunoassay (ELISA) and compared with radioimmunoassay of the plasma. In general the three assays showed similar trends in progestogen concentration changes but absolute(More)
Histological examination of the reproductive tract of the male dog failed to identify glandular tissue other than the prostate gland and its disseminated portion. A biochemical study of the three fractions of the ejaculate demonstrates similarities between the first and the third fractions. The composition of three ejaculates collected over 12 hours(More)
Exudate and uterine flushings were collected at either 30, 60, 120 or 240 mins after intrauterine infusions of Streptococcus zooepidemicus in genitally normal mares during oestrus. Uteri were also flushed without prior induction of endometritis. Protein concentrations in exudate and flushings increased with time and exudate pH decreased with time; the pH of(More)
