  • LVH is a frequent complication in obese humans, with prevalence estimates of up to 85% (Cuspidi et al., 2014). There are little published data relating to cardiovascular changes associated with obesity in dogs. The present study indicated an increased LVFWd and IVSd in the OB group of dogs, suggesting the presence of myocardial concentric…[Read more]

  • Cured meat products are popular in many parts of the world. Even though cured meat products are a known source of food borne diseases they remain a traditional and popular food item in many European countries. In the past, Trichinella outbreaks due to the consumption of cured wild boar or pork products have been described in countries such as…[Read more]

  • ConclusionsConflict of interest statementIntroductionLaminitis associated with insulin dysregulation is an important cause of morbidity in domestic equine populations (Harris et al., 2006; Katz and Bailey, 2012). Insulin dysregulation is an umbrella term that refers to insulin resistance, fasting hyperinsulinaemia and/or exaggerated insulin…[Read more]

  • The EI dose used in the present study was lower than those previously reported (Mathias et al. 2004; Fan et al. 2014), which suggests that dexmedetomidine premedication (3 μg kg−1) provided a substantial anesthetic-sparing effect. Dogs administered EI alone were not sufficiently anesthetized to allow endotracheal intubation, whereas the ad…[Read more]

  • 4. ConclusionAHE is a benign form of leukocytoclastic vasculitis that normally needs supportive therapy and clears without any complications. Infections, mainly upper respiratory tract infections, could possibly be involved in development of such disease. In the child’s case, Rhinovirus is perhaps the trigger for the AHE condition.DisclosureNo c…[Read more]

  • Energy expenditure and substrate oxidation assessmentWhole body calorimetry (WBC)The WBC was a 13.5?m3 room furnished with a single-bed, a foldable chair, a bureau with built-in sink, deep-freeze toilet (Special Products, Mulder), a colour television, an alarm clock, a radio, a telephone, a laptop, WIFI connection and an automated intercom for…[Read more]

  • 2.4. Flow rate and flow resistanceFlow rate is the amount of fluid flowing in a given length of time. It can be expressed as the volume of fluid stored during a given period of time. In fluid mechanics, the flow rate equals the volume of fluid divided by the time used to deliver the volume. Thus, the flow rate in mechanical ventilation is given…[Read more]

    Test results for sequential and distributed algorithm are shown in the table 3. The results represent average values for 100 repetitions of tests. Tests were carried out for different population sizes (120-480 particles) and for varying synchronization time in DPSO algorithm: Tsync ∈ 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 .Table 3. Sequential (PSO) and d…[Read more]

  • Both the formation energy per Protease Inhibitor Library and the lattice constant ‘a’ of Ni-16Cr and Ni-16Mo have been computed using equivalent atom % (Ni-18Cr and Ni-8Mo) and given in Table 1. The equilibrium lattice constant has been obtained by varying lattice constant and calculating the energy corresponding to each lattice constant to get…[Read more]

  • 3.4. Forest ecosystemForest tree phenophase moved earlier. Cool-oriented species migrated to higher altitudes, and risk of forest pests and fire increased. Temperature rising made the spring phenophase of forest arbor come in advance by about 10 d and green period extended by about 15 d [Liu et al., 2007]. Affected by climate warming and policy…[Read more]

    Recently, dynamic chest radiography using a flat panel detector (FPD) system with a large field of view was introduced for clinical use. This technique can provide sequential chest radiographs with high temporal resolution during respiration (17), and the comt inhibitor dose is much lower than that of CT. Also, whereas CT and MRI are performed…[Read more]

  • Pulmonary Function TestsThe pulmonary function tests were performed in all participants on the same day of the imaging study. Parameters of pulmonary function tests were measured according to the American Thoracic Society guidelines 20 ;  21 using a pulmonary function instrument with computer processing (DISCOM-21 FX, Chest MI Co, Tokyo,…[Read more]

    Our study demonstrated that the average excursions of the bilateral MM-102 during tidal breathing (right: 11.0 mm, 95% CI 10.4 to 11.6 mm; left: 14.9 mm, 95% CI 14.2 to 15.5 mm) were numerically less than those during forced breathing in previous studies using other modalities 2; 7 ;  8. Using fluoroscopy, Alexander reported that the average…[Read more]
