Effects of injection position and transponder size on the performances of passive injectable transponders used for the electronic identification of cattle. (1/77)A total of 686 Tiris half-duplex passive injectable transponders (PIT) of two sizes (23 and 32 mm) were randomly injected s.c. in three positions, armpit, ear scutulum, and upper lip, in 343 fattening calves (1 to 3 mo old). Injections were performed by two trained and two untrained operators. Losses and breakages on the farm were recorded at wk 1, 3, 7, 11, and 15 in restrained animals using two types of hand-held transceivers with a stick antenna. Dynamic reading efficiency (DRE) in animals running through a raceway was also evaluated at wk 1 and 3 and monthly until slaughter, using a stationary transceiver working at 137 dB x microV x m(-1) at 3 m. The total number of PIT that fell or broke in the slaughtering line, the location method, and the recovery time were also recorded. Results on the farm showed low breakages on average (0.4%) and differences (P < 0.05) in losses according to position (armpit, 1.7%; ear, 5.2%; and lip, 14.0%). An interaction (P < 0.05) between position x size was observed, and losses were greatest using a 32-mm PIT in the lip. The DRE was affected (P < 0.05) by PIT position and size, and values were greater for the 32-mm PIT in all positions (armpit: 99.9 +/- 0.1 vs 95.8 +/- 4.9%; ear: 93.8 +/- 2.2 vs 81.9 +/- 4.6%; lip: 66.8 +/- 4.9 vs 53.4 +/- 4.7%, respectively, for 32 vs 23 mm). Recovery of PIT in the abattoir was on average 96.7, 96.7, and 99.2% for armpit, ear, and lip, respectively (P > 0.05). Most of the PIT injected in the armpit were recovered by sight or palpation, but 31.9% were recovered after cutting the muscles around the area and 10.7% were recovered on the internal side of the hide, which jeopardized carcass identification. Recovery of PIT injected in the ear was 23.4% in the hide and 76.6% in the auricular muscles of the head. The easiest recovery was in the lip, 8.9% of PIT were located in the hide and 91.1% in the head. Recovery time was affected (P < 0.05) by position: the quickest was lip (27 +/- 2 s), followed by ear (52 +/- 5 s) and armpit (78 +/- 7 s). In conclusion, taking into account retention and reading performances, injection of a 32-mm PIT into the armpit showed the best results on the farm, but a careful and longer recovery was needed in the abattoir. Improvement of recovery methodology and time would be necessary in order to recommend injection of PIT in the armpit instead of in the ear for cattle tracking or monitoring. (+info)
Evaluating mutant mice: anatomic pathology. (2/77)As the human and mouse genome projects approach their goals, initiatives in functional genomics are advancing. When the nucleotide sequences are available, identification of gene functions will assume even greater importance. Determination of gene products and their proximal biochemical functions provide a part of the picture, but determination of their functions in the context of the whole organism is the ultimate goal. The manipulated mouse genome has become accepted as a model for understanding the genetic basis of human conditions and diseases. Consequently, biomedical research institutions have seen significant increases in the use of mice since the early 1980s, and these increases are largely attributable to the use of genetically modified mice. The role of comparative pathology in research on mutant mouse models of disease is increasing in response to these trends. Evaluation and phenotypic characterization of mutant mice, via clinical and anatomic pathology techniques, will be an important component of functional genomics initiatives. (+info)
Individually measured feed intake characteristics and growth performance of group-housed weanling pigs: effects of sex, initial body weight, and body weight distribution within groups. (3/77)Feed intake characteristics of 192, 27-d-old weanling pigs housed in groups and given ad libitum access to feed and water were measured individually with the use of computerized feeding stations. The groups were either homogeneous or heterogeneous as to BW distribution; pigs of three defined initial BW classes were used (mean BW of 6.7, 7.9, or 9.3 kg). The effects of BW distribution, BW class, and sex were studied with regard to average performance traits, latency time (interval between weaning and first feed intake), initial feed intake (intake during the first 24 h following first feed intake), and daily increase in feed intake during the interval between first feed intake and the day on which energy intake met or exceeded 1.5 times the maintenance requirement. Homogeneous and heterogeneous groups had similar latency times, initial feed intakes, and daily increases in feed intake. For the period 0 to 34 d after weaning, ADFI and ADG were also similar for homogeneous and heterogeneous groups, but gain:feed ratio was greater (P < 0.05) in the homogeneous groups. Gilts had higher (P < 0.05) initial feed intakes than barrows and also had greater (P < 0.05) ADFI and ADG during the period 0 to 13 d after weaning. Pigs with average BW of 6.7 kg had higher (P < 0.05) initial feed intakes than their counterparts with average BW of 7.9 kg and 9.3 kg, but the daily increase in feed intake was similar for the three groups. The lighter pigs had more daily visits and a lower feed intake per visit and tended to have a shorter postweaning latency to the onset of feeding than the heavier pigs. This study indicates that the high variability in early feeding behavior among group-housed weanling pigs may be related to BW and sex. (+info)
Migratory movements, depth preferences, and thermal biology of Atlantic bluefin tuna. (4/77)The deployment of electronic data storage tags that are surgically implanted or satellite-linked provides marine researchers with new ways to examine the movements, environmental preferences, and physiology of pelagic vertebrates. We report the results obtained from tagging of Atlantic bluefin tuna with implantable archival and pop-up satellite archival tags. The electronic tagging data provide insights into the seasonal movements and environmental preferences of this species. Bluefin tuna dive to depths of >1000 meters and maintain a warm body temperature. Western-tagged bluefin tuna make trans-Atlantic migrations and they frequent spawning grounds in the Gulf of Mexico and eastern Mediterranean. These data are critical for the future management and conservation of bluefin tuna in the Atlantic. (+info)
The use of passive injectable transponders in fattening lambs from birth to slaughter: effects of injection position, age, and breed. (5/77)A total of 1,159 Tiris half-duplex passive injectable transponders (PIT) of 32-mm length were used to study the electronic identification of 618 fattening lambs of two breeds used for different production purposes (Ripollesa, meat breed, n = 271, and Manchega, dairy breed, n = 347). The lambs were s.c. injected in the armpit and the retro-auricular positions at 2, 15, and 30 d of age. All lambs were also tagged with a small plastic ear tag after birth. A group of 76 lambs were injected only in the right armpit and were kept for breeding. The PIT losses, breakages, and electronic failures were evaluated at weekly weight recordings throughout the fattening period using two types of hand-held transceivers. Fattened lambs were harvested in a commercial abattoir between 3 and 4 mo of age when they reached market weight (11 to 12 kg hot carcass weight). The total number of PIT that fell or broke in the slaughtering line, the location method, and the recovery time were recorded. On the farm PIT losses were not affected (P > 0.05) by age at injection, injection position, or breed. Mean losses of PIT and ear tags during the same period were 5% and 6.3%, respectively (P > 0.05). No PIT breakages or failures were observed during the fattening period. Mean recovery of PIT in the abattoir (85.6%) was affected (P < 0.05) by breed and injection position. Losses of PIT in the abattoir were greater (P < 0.05) in the Ripollesa breed (18.4%) than in Manchega (10.0%), and for both breeds losses were greater (P < 0.05) in the retro-auricular than in the armpit positions (18.6 vs 10.8%, respectively). The percentage of PIT broken during slaughtering was low (0.3%). The mean recovery times (18 +/- 2 s) were not affected (P > 0.05) by breed, injection position, or age, thus allowing a harvesting speed of 200 lambs/h on average. In conclusion, the injection of 32-mm PIT into the armpit or the retro-auricular region is not recommended as a practice for the electronic identification of fattening lambs, even though they perform similarly to small plastic ear tags. This is partly a consequence of the PIT losses observed on the farm but mainly because of the difficulties with recovering the PIT in the abattoir. More research will determine whether the use of smaller transponders or injection in other positions could improve their performance in fattening lambs. (+info)
FasL deficiency enhances the development of tumors in p53+/- mice. (6/77)In the multistep process of tumor development, several events occur to transform cells from normal to malignant. Although p53 is one of the most commonly mutated genes in a wide variety of tumors, how other genes interact with p53 to transform cells is only just beginning to be understood. To study the effects of the interaction of the Fas system with p53 in tumor progression and development, mice with a targeted disruption of the p53 tumor supressor gene and a mutation in Fas ligand were bred. Organ weights, life expectancy, and tumor and tissue histology were assessed. Although spleen weights were drastically increased in FasL -/- p53 -/- mice, the FasL deficiency had no effect on life expectancy or the tumor spectrum of homozygous p53-deficient mice. The FasL deficiency reduced the median time to death from 12.1 months in FasL +/+ p53 +/- mice to 9.6 months in FasL -/- p53 +/- mice, and led to a shift in tumor spectrum from predominantly sarcomas (63%) when FasL was present to a large number of lymphomas (76%) in FasL -/- p53 +/- mice. Given the reduced life span and increased incidence of lymphoma in FasL -/- p53 +/- mice, these mice could be useful in carcinogenicity testing, particularly for understanding mechanisms of compounds that are nongenotoxic.

Effects of small ruminal boluses used for electronic identification of lambs on the growth and development of the reticulorumen. (7/77)Fifty-four male lambs were used to study the effects of two types of small electronic boluses on the dimensions and epithelial characteristics of their reticulorumen. Newborn lambs were assigned according to bolus type and age of application to the following treatments: 1) control (C, n = 21), without bolus; 2) mini (M, n = 21), identified with a 9.3 x 37.4-mm, 5.2-g bolus during the first week after birth; and 3) small (S, n = 12), identified with a 15.0 x 39.1-mm, 20-g bolus after weaning at wk 5, when lambs weighed more than 12 kg. After weaning, lambs were given ad libitum access to concentrate and barley straw. Six lambs were euthanized at the start of the experiment to measure initial reticulorumen characteristics. Ten lambs (five from M and five from C treatments) were slaughtered at weaning and 24 (eight per treatment) were slaughtered when they reached 24 kg. After bolus recovery, the reticulorumen was emptied and filled with polyurethane foam to obtain reticulorumen casts. Weight of the emptied reticulorumen and volume of the casts were measured. Four representative lambs from each treatment were also slaughtered at 24 kg, and their reticulorumen used to evaluate papillae size, number of dead cells, and degree of keratinization of both the reticulum wall and the rumen wall epithelia. Weight at weaning (13.8 kg), age at the end of fattening (65 d), and mortality rate (4%) did not differ among treatments. Retention rate for M and S boluses was 82.4 and 100%, respectively. Fresh weight and volume of the reticulorumen did not differ among treatments at weaning (130 g and 1,679 mL) or at the end of the fattening period (640 g and 5,931 mL). Lambs in the M treatment had greater (P < 0.05) rumen papillae size and lower (P < 0.10) keratinization than C lambs; values in the S lambs were intermediate between M and C lambs. Neither the M nor S type of bolus affected dimensions of the reticulorumen, but the earlier presence of M boluses induced a greater papillae size, with no negative effects on health and fattening performances of young lambs.

Dispersal of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus (Diptera: Culicidae) in an urban endemic dengue area in the State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. (8/77)Experimental releases of female Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti and Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus were performed in August and September 1999, in an urban area of Nova Igua u, State of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to estimate their flight range in a circular area of 1,600 m where 1,472 ovitraps were set. Releases of 3,055 Ae. aegypti and 2,225 Ae. albopictus females, fed with rubidium (Rb)-marked blood and surgically prevented from subsequent blood-feeding, were separated by 11 days. Rb was detected in ovitrap-collected eggs by atomic emission spectrophotometry. Rb-marked eggs of both species were detected up to 800 m from the release point. Eggs of Ae. albopictus were more numerous and more heterogeneously distributed in the area than those of Ae. aegypti. Eggs positively marked for Rb were found at all borders of the study area, suggesting that egg laying also occurred beyond these limits. Results from this study suggest that females can fly at least 800 m in 6 days and, if infected, potentially spread virus rapidly. (+info)

The USDA is seeking to inform stakeholders, like small farmers and producers, about the National Animal Identification System and to hear concerns and possible solutions to those concerns. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced that the USDA will hold a series of listening sessions on the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). The sessions will include information about the current program as well as testimonies and a question-and-answer time for the public. The information and ideas will help Secretary Vilsack in making future decisions regarding animal identification. The meetings will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern time with registration one hour prior to each meeting.. Eight states will hold the meetings:. ...
The National Animal Identification System, (NAIS) is a government-run program in the United States intended to extend government animal health surveillance by identifying and tracking specific animals. Administered at the federal level by the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, a branch of the United States Department of Agriculture, NAIS will also be overseen by state animal health boards. While the federal program is voluntary, money received by some states, tribes, and non-profit entities from the USDA through cooperative agreements has been used to make parts or all of the program mandatory. Critics claim the system will put small farmers out of business, by requiring that farmers pay the cost of registration devices of between $1 and $20 for each animal. Large, corporate factory farms which are connected to vertically integrated, birth-to-death factory systems ID and pay by the herd (and not the individual animal), while small farmers must pay it for each animal. The National Animal ...

ALBUQUERQUE -- New Mexico State University recently welcomed officials from the U.S. Department of Agricultures Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, representatives from tribal colleges and universities, community-based organizations, state officials and livestock producers for a meeting held to forge partnerships for outreach and education on the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) within Native American communities.
The following statement is as old and tattered as the copy of the Constitution contained within my purse, however, "If you eat you should fight NAIS".. The lucky livestock owner works from dawn to dusk, gets up for lambing, calving, kidding, downer critters sometime in the night, grabs a few winks, wakes up and starts all over again. The unlucky one does the same thing with the hours left in the day when they come back from their "off the farm" job. In return one has the pleasure of sustaining their family with home produced meat, dairy, or vegetables from the garden blessed with the the manure they so diligently composted throughout the year. Breaking even is considered good, making a profit near impossible, years with losses are more the reality.. Enter the USDAs NAIS program. According to Kansas State University, which was paid nearly a half million dollars to complete a "Benefit-Cost Analysis of the National Animal Identification System" (EXCEL Spreadsheet), it will cost the small cow-calf ...

The objective of animal identification is to protect the health of animals, humans and the environment, to improve the welfare of animals and to ensure the safety of food by requiring systematic information on animal holdings, operators responsible for animals and animals themselves. The information enables the origin of animals and their movements between holdings to be traced. With the data included in registers, different risks can be addressed rapidly and efficiently, preventing, for example, animal diseases from spreading or diseases that can be shared between animals and humans (zoonoses) from being transmitted to the food chain.. The animal identification system is controlled by the Finnish Food Safety Authority Evira.. ...

Laura McGinnis, ARS News Service, USDA, [email protected], (301) 504-1654. Identifying individual animals is essential to controlling diseases and monitoring international imports and exports. To find out whos who in a herd, scientists and cattle industry professionals rely on DNA--especially when traditional animal identification has been lost or damaged. Highly specialized genetic markers, developed by Agricultural Research Service (ARS) scientists at the U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, Clay Center, Neb., are helping to improve animal identification and parentage testing.. The most common type of genetic marker present in U.S. beef and dairy cattle is the single nucleotide polymorphism or SNP. The scientists have already identified 122 specialized parentage SNPs and annotated more than 1,600 neighboring SNPs. This knowledge has increased the accuracy of parentage and identification tests.. Using genetic markers, scientists can generate molecular fingerprints to match multiple ...

The replacement for the ill-fated National Animal Identification System, which was so unpopular with rural America that Congress cut its funding, was a late summer rollout by Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack.. Vilsack touted four standard features of the new animal disease traceability program that he thought would make it acceptable to farmers and ranchers. The four features are:. - it applies only to animals moved interstate.. - it will be run by state and tribal governments. - it will use low-cost technology. - it be be implemented only through transparent federal regulations using full rule making. If most of more than 160 comments sent to APHIS to date are any indication, the new plan is roughly as unpopular as NAIS was. "What part of NO is beyond your comprehension?" asks Laura Richardson of Deer Lodge, TN. "This latest salvo from USDA is NAIS all over again.". Dale Allen Taggart, from Walking Cross Ranch at California, MO, said in written comments to the agency that the new rule ...
After a long-fought six-year battle, independent cattle producers have finally succeeded in stopping the National Animal Identification System (NAIS), which was an onerous plan conceived by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and promoted by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), domestic and multinational ear tag companies, as well as multinational meat packers and their closely aligned trade associations.. The battle was extremely lopsided. USDA had millions of dollars of taxpayer money - over $140 million to be precise - to develop and promote NAIS and to persuade state departments of agriculture and cattle industry trade associations to recruit as many independent cattle producers as possible into the ill-fated NAIS program. According to the Web site www.usaspending.gov, the National Cattlemens Foundation, part of the National Cattlemens Beef Association (NCBA), received over $2.1 million from the federal government in 2008 to promote NAIS.. Armed with millions of dollars and six years ...

NAIS, the national animal identification system, is a big government boondoggle that can easily be compared to President Obamas plan to borrow trillions of dollars, much of it from the Chinese, to save a bad economy that was created in the first place by too much borrowing. NAIS will NOT make our food safer, but it will most certainly make thousands of small stockmen disappear. It will require ranchers to spend a great deal of money on equipment, inserting the chips, and reporting any changes, with terrible fines for computer errors, acts of nature, or noncompliance. Yet factory farms are exempt from those same rules.. The USDA is pushing it partly to show they are doing something about the pitiful state of food safety, which they have botched BIG TIME. The original NAIS plan caused such a backlash that in November 2006 the USDA backtracked and said, "We must emphasize that NAIS is a voluntary program at the Federal level, and USDA has no plans to make participation in any component of the ...

While the long and often controversial effort to develop a national animal identification (ID) system may not be completely finalized yet, complying with animal ID and movement regulations is now the law of the land.. And it has been for a while. U.S. cattle producers and their veterinarians have been working under USDAs Animal Disease Traceability (ADT) rule for the past 18 months. However, USDA and state animal health officials have been emphasizing education and cooperation rather than enforcement in an effort to achieve compliance with the ADT rule, according to Chelsea Good, Livestock Marketing Association (LMA) vice president of government and industry affairs.. Speaking during a webinar sponsored by GlobalVetLINK, Good says the ADT rule became effective on March 11, 2013. For the first year the rule was in place, USDA and state animal health officials concentrated on education, explaining the requirements and nuances of the rule to cattle producers. In March 2014, USDA announced it would ...

No sooner have most people pronounced NAIS dead-on-arrival, than a number of recent events may have breathed life back into the U.S.A.s National Animal Identification Scheme. A combination of market forces aligned with a simplified tracking technology, and some rare positive news may have reinvigorated USDAs moribund, voluntary animal traceability initiative.. First the news headlines. Even though the U.S. House of Representatives had voted to cut off funding for the NAIS as part of the Farm Bill, a joint House-Senate conference committee agreed a few weeks ago to continue funding the program to the tune of $5.3 million for fiscal year 2010-2011. This funding is a reduction from the $14.2 million authorized for last year and less than the $14.6 million the Senate approved, but the program will continue. However, a growing number of Congressional members have made it clear they want to see effective leadership from USDA to dispel some of the more egregious NAIS rumors running unchallenged in ...

Very often, veterinary professionals are faced with directly and quickly identify the bodies of animals, carcasses or carcass portions. This operation is based on morphological characters highlighting defining species, sex and even approximate age. They are very frequent cases when the soft parts are damaged bodies and carcasses of animals are partially or totally boned. In view of this, it shows the importance of examining the skeleton as a whole or its constituent parts. Operation animal identification by morphological features of the skeleton is more difficult as are younger animals (presence of cartilage growth, strengthening bones insufficient, incomplete formation of characteristic details, enable scattering and fragmentation of the bones). In the domestic mammals there is possibility of occurrence of confusion, especially if bones and body parts belonging to the same class animals close. Only perfect knowledge of bone morphology allows the veterinarian to determine what species ...
Availability of information and technical services and assistance. At present, much of the available information is fragmented and often difficult to access for the rural emergent farmer/stock owner. In addition, access to appropriate technology and to markets further complicates matters. Information on often less suitable breeds is more freely available in the popular agricultural media.. Some breed societies have donated genetic material to the emergent-farmer sector, but few have yet become involved in the communal sector. Actions in this sector need to be integrated or holistic, taking into consideration the complexity of stock ownership, communal land tenure and the need for basic inputs such as animal identification, recording and improved veldt and animal husbandry..

The new federal scrapie eradication program regulations require all sexually intact sheep and goats to be officially identified before they are moved from the farm for any purpose. Scrapie is a central nervous system disease that affects predominantly sheep, but has also been known to affect goats. The disease, which is transmitted during lambing and kidding, has a long incubation period and does not affect animals until 2-5 years after exposure making the disease difficult to eradicate. There is not yet a valid test for the disease in live animals, but it can be diagnosed on animals that die of the disease. The presence of the disease prevents us from exporting sheep and goats to Australia, New Zealand and several other markets besides causing animal losses. Permanent identification of animals will help to identify flocks that have animals infected with scrapie, and will help in tracing those animals that are exposed and thus potentially infected. Right now, individual animal identification and ...

Early studies on animal blood groups were performed in the USA and Europe but the real breakthrough came with the immunisation technique for the detection of antigens on the surface of erythrocytes. Stormont13,14 demonstrated the occurrence of a large number of antigenic factors, determined by genes, on cattle red cells. At least 9 different loci were identified and the term immunogenetics was introduced for that part of science which utilises immunology as a tool for studying genetic characteristics and variation3. There was an obvious interest among European breeders and geneticists in taking up immunogenetic studies. It was expected to open up new possibilities for research in population genetics and to facilitate the search for marker genes influencing production or disease. However, the main reason was a very practical one: a real need had arisen for accurate animal identification after the introduction of artificial insemination (AI) around l950 for solving cases of disputed parentage in ...

The basic principles of electronic identification with the German eID are based on. ...
The use of biometrics in electronic identification documents serves to verify the identity card bearer. That is, with the help of biometric characteristics, it can be determined more easily whether the person presenting the ID document is actually also the owner of the document. Thus, for example, two people that look almost identical to the human eye, can be distinguished with the help of a computer based facial comparison.. If this method is used e.g for border control, first the facial image is read out of the ID document, then a photograph is taken on site. These two images are then compared by means of a computer program. Slight changes in appearance, such as a different hairstyle, have no influence on the results of this test.. However, it is important that the biometric features stored on the identity document have at least a certain level of quality. Therefore, in various technical guidelines of the BSI, ISO and ICAO uniform standards are defined on how the characteristics are collected ...
According to Rafaele Joudry, director of Sound Therapy International, listening to Sound Therapy CDs offers a variety of benefits, from reducing stress to acquiring vigor for getting through the day. Benefits other listeners have noticed are improved rest with sleep, relief from tinnitus, clearer communication, and a willingness to socialize. But what exactly is Sound Therapy? At first glance the CDs appear to be a variety of classical music. However, each musical selection has passed through the Electronic Ear, which is a machine that alters the frequency levels and adjusts the sounds therapeutically, so during listening, the ear and brain receive a workout. Many people have experienced harm to their high-frequency hearing through loud noises at concerts or from the industrial environment of today. The damage to high-frequency hearing was noticed during some of the earlier work done with Sound Therapys predecessor, the huge, non-portable Electronic Ear in the office of ear specialist, Dr. ...

Varian Receives FDA Clearance for Use of Transponder to Monitor Motion During Radiotherapy | Imaging Technology News
March 12, 2012 - Varian Medical Systems received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a surface beacon transponder to be used with the Calypso system as a tracking device capable of monitoring motion during radiotherapy treatments for indications anywhere in the body. The Surface Beacon Transponder is placed temporarily on the skin for real-time tracking of respiratory and other patient motion during radiotherapy, greatly expanding the number of cancer sites for which the Calypso technology can be used.. "Our new surface transponder allows users to track patient motion in real-time during treatment," said Chris Toth, vice president of marketing for Varians Oncology Systems group. "It can be placed on a patients chest wall to monitor respiratory motion during radiotherapy. It is designed to improve targeting in some of the most prevalent types of cancer, including breast cancer.". For example, chest wall monitoring during treatment of the left breast can ...

We recently reported that N-acetylphenylalanylphenylalanine (AcPhe-Phe) was produced from the peptidyl-transfer RNA (tRNA) analog N-acetylphenylalanyl- tRNA (AcPhe-tRNA) and phenylalanyl-tRNA (Phe-tRNA) in the presence of the entire 23S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) or with domain V alone prepared by in vitro transcription (Research Article, 31 July, p. 666) (1, 2). However, we subsequently discovered that there were problems with the identification of the products by thin-layer chromatography (TLC). We (3) and Khaitovich et al. (4) found independently that the spot on the TLC plate that we previously identified as AcPhe-Phe consisted mainly of AcPhe-methyl- or ethyl-ester (AcPhe-OMe or AcPhe-OEt), which might have been produced by the reaction of AcPhe-tRNA and residual alcohol (0.1% or less) in the RNA preparations.. Once we discovered this product misidentification on the TLC plates, we realized that the data in our Science paper concerning quantitative analysis of the spot were not definitive.. In ...

I am a 34 y/o female, that until this past month has been healthy. I have a sharp pain in my upper breast (primarily left, but sometimes on the right), which extends under my armpit (this has been ongoing for the past 4 weeks). Pain is felt upon touching the area and seems exacerbated by deep breathing. Original diagnosis was pleurisy, but Im uncertain this is accurate, based on pain to the touch. Pain radiates to back clavicles. Sometimes feels like a cold draft is in my breast. I tested positive for Influenza last week (though Ive been sick for 4 weeks). 2 chest x-rays have come back clean. EKG and Echo are fine. No pericardis. I finished my first dose of Clomid at time pain started. Quality of pain has changed over 4 weeks (started as sharp and shooting and has become more dull).

9 CFR Part 81 - CHRONIC WASTING DISEASE IN DEER, ELK, AND MOOSE | US Law | LII / Legal Information Institute
We are amending a final rule, which will take effect when these amendments become effective, that will establish a herd certification program to control chronic wasting disease (CWD) in farmed or captive cervids in the United States. Under that rule, owners of deer, elk, and moose herds who choose to participate in the CWD Herd Certification Program would have to follow requirements for animal identification, testing, herd management, and movement of animals into and from herds. This document amends that final rule to provide that our regulations will set minimum requirements for the interstate movement of farmed or captive deer, elk, and moose but will not preempt State or local laws or regulations that are more restrictive than our regulations. This document requests public comment on that change. This document also amends the final rule to require farmed or captive deer, elk, and moose to participate in the Herd Certification Program and to be monitored for CWD for 5 years before they can ...
U.S. Food and Drug Administration Reveals Radio Frequency Identification Devices Can Cause Malfunctions in Pacemakers,...
WASHINGTON, DC - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in collaboration with major implantable pacemaker and ICD manufacturers, demonstrated the effects of emissions from radio frequency identification (RFID) readers on common implantable cardiac devices. According to research published in the January edition of the HeartRhythm Journal, the official journal of the Heart Rhythm Society, the observed effects may cause increasing complications as RFID use expands in the medical device field. Read full text of study ». The study, which looked at the electromagnetic interference susceptibility of 15 pacemakers and 15 ICDs caused by exposure to 13 RFID readers, concluded that low frequency RFID readers may pose the greatest risk to pacemakers and ICDs. While modern pacemakers and ICDs use filters to minimize susceptibility to higher-frequency signals, there is limited filtering of low frequency signals due to the design constraints of both pacemakers and ICDs.. The in vitro testing concluded that ...
Study on application of radio frequency identification technology for deer farm management. The aim of this study is applying radio frequency identification (RFID) and developing management system for deer farm. RFID ear tags which included general data of deer, vaccination, weight, estrus data, velvet production and frozen semen information data were tagged on stags. Operators could use electronic panel to load data from ear tags and the data would be read and passed to the computer by wireless network. The results showed the data of ear tags could be read by the electronic panel when stags were running and immediately passed to the computer system.. ( H. M. Liang, H. H. Lin, C. H. Wang, S. Z.

Hailey-Hailey disease is also known as familial benign chronic pemphigus, as originally described by the Hailey brothers. It is a rare inherited skin condition in which red scaly areas that can be itchy and sore, can lead to superficial blisters and eroded (broken) areas of the skin folds of the groin, armpits, neck and under the breasts. The condition flares intermittently and tends to come and go. Many patients are able to lead full and normal lives, with their condition being a nuisance rather than a serious problem.
