Rats housed on corncob bedding show less slow-wave sleep.

TLDR
Spontaneous EEG recordings obtained for 5 wk after the switch to corncob bedding demonstrated that rats spent significantly less time in SWS as compared with levels measured on aspen chips just prior to the bedding switch, which raises important concerns about the effects of corncOB bedding on rodents used in research.

TLDR
Sera from patients with red cedar asthma failed to passively sensitize human lung fragments of human basophils, indicating that immunologic mechanisms other than Type I hypersensitivity reaction are likely to be involved.

THE MOUSE IgE TEST: INTERLABORATORY EVALUATION AND COMPARISON OF BALB/c AND C57BL/6 STRAIN MICE

TLDR
The present investigations were designed to evaluate further the utility of the mouse IgE test, using trimellitic anhydride, a known cause of respiratory sensitization and occupational asthma, and 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene, a potent contact allergen that is considered not to cause sensitization of the respiratory tract.

Induction of Drug-Metabolizing Enzymes in Liver Microsomes of Mice and Rats by Softwood Bedding

TLDR
Differences in the capacity of various beddings to induce may partially explain divergent results of studies on drug-metabolizing enzymes.

Modulation of airway inflammation by passive transfer of allergen-specific Th1 and Th2 cells in a mouse model of asthma.

TLDR
It is shown that in the murine model of OVA-induced airway inflammation, both Th1 and Th2 cells are recruited to the airways and Ag-specific Th1 cells are not protective in this model of asthma, but rather may potentiate the inflammatory response.

Carcinogenicity of wood shavings

TLDR
The recent finding that the p-0-methyl derivative of sinapaldehyde and 2,6-dimethoxy-1,4-benzoquinone are carcinogenic for the rat may implicate the α, β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds present in wood lignins.

Bronchial inflammation in occupational asthma due to western red cedar.

TLDR
Both cedar asthma and atopic asthma are associated with increased numbers of T-cells and activated eosinophils in the bronchial mucosa.
