Evaluation of PCR as a means of identification of Pasteurella pneumotropica. (1/746)

A polymerase chain reaction with new primers (new PCR) designed from Pasteurella pneumotropica 16S rDNA as an identification system for this organism was compared with the PCR reported by Wang et al. (Wang's PCR) by using 15 bacterial reference species and 70 clinical isolates with the conventional identification system. For the 15 reference strains, both PCRs were identical. For the 70 clinical isolates, the new PCR and Wang's PCR showed consistency with the conventional system in 62.9% (44/70) and 51.4% (36/70), respectively. Twenty-six isolates were inconsistent with the conventional system and the new PCR with respect to morphology and serology. These findings suggested that the new PCR was more sensitive than Wang's PCR, and the new PCR in combination with morphology and serology is useful for P. pneumotropica identification.  (+info)

Opportunistic Pneumocystis carinii infection in red-bellied tamarins (Saguinus labiatus). (2/746)

P. carinii infection in red-bellied tamarins (Saguinus labiatus), born and maintained in a laboratory breeding colony, was examined by histopathologic examination postmortem. P. carinii cysts were detected in 6 of 10 red-bellied tamarins examined, by using Grocott's, toluidine blue O and immunostaining with avidin-biotin complex using antisera for rat-, simian-, and human-P. carinii. The results obtained from the present studies imply that P. carinii may be an important pathogen in this species.  (+info)

Microsatellite loci in wild-type and inbred Strongylocentrotus purpuratus. (3/746)

Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, a major research model in developmental molecular biology, has been inbred through six generations of sibling matings. Though viability initially decreased, as described earlier, the inbred line now consists of healthy, fertile animals. These are intended to serve as a genomic resource in which the level of polymorphism is decreased with respect to wild S. purpuratus. To genotype the inbred animals eight simple sequence genomic repeats were isolated, in context, and PCR primers were generated against the flanking single-copy sequences. Distribution and polymorphism of these regions of the genome were studied in the genomes of 27 wild individuals and in a sample of the inbred animals at F2 and F3 generations. All eight regions were polymorphic, though to different extents, and their homozygosity was increased by inbreeding as expected. The eight markers suffice to identify unambiguously the cellular DNA of any wild or F3 S. purpuratus individual.  (+info)

Infection of laboratory mice with the human granulocytic ehrlichiosis agent does not induce antibodies to diagnostically significant Borrelia burgdorferi antigens. (4/746)

Laboratory diagnosis of Borrelia burgdorferi is routinely made by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, with positive results confirmed by Western blot analysis. Concern has been raised that false-positive diagnoses may be made on the basis of serologic cross-reactivity with antibodies directed against other bacterial pathogens, in particular the agent of human granulocytic ehrlichiosis (HGE). The present study made use of a mouse model to ascertain the validity of these concerns. Two different strains of mice were inoculated with the HGE agent and assayed for production of polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies to antigens of both of these bacteria. Infection of mice with the HGE agent does not induce diagnostically significant B. burgdorferi serologic cross-reactions.  (+info)

Genetics of mouse behavior: interactions with laboratory environment. (5/746)

Strains of mice that show characteristic patterns of behavior are critical for research in neurobehavioral genetics. Possible confounding influences of the laboratory environment were studied in several inbred strains and one null mutant by simultaneous testing in three laboratories on a battery of six behaviors. Apparatus, test protocols, and many environmental variables were rigorously equated. Strains differed markedly in all behaviors, and despite standardization, there were systematic differences in behavior across labs. For some tests, the magnitude of genetic differences depended upon the specific testing lab. Thus, experiments characterizing mutants may yield results that are idiosyncratic to a particular laboratory.  (+info)

Production of ex-germfree rabbits for establishment of specific pathogen-free (SPF) colonies. (6/746)

Nine groups of ex-germfree (GF) rabbits were produced by inoculation of hysterectomy-derived GF rabbits with various combinations of cecal bacteria isolated from conventional (CV) rabbits in order to establish a barrier-sustained colony. Six strains of Bacteroides and two strains of Streptococcus isolated from CV rabbits (2 to 3 weeks old) were used for pretreatment. The mortality of ex-GF rabbits inoculated with the anaerobic growth (CF) on EG or SM10 plates inoculated with a 10(-5) dilution of cecal contents was 71.4 to 94.4% when given without pretreatment. All ex-GF rabbits pretreated with Bacteroides alone survived, but the mortality of ex-GF rabbits inoculated with Bacteroides plus Streptococcus strains as pretreatment was 20 and 45.4%. The mortality of ex-GF rabbits inoculated with only Bacteroides was 43%. All ex-GF rabbits inoculated with Bacteroides plus anaerobic growth (CF), cecal suspension of ex-GF mice which had been inoculated with cecal suspensions of CV rabbits (MF) or chloroform-treated cecal suspension (CHF) survived, but CHF inoculated ex-GF rabbits were in an unhealthy condition with slight diarrhoea. These data indicate that inoculation with Bacteroides strains as pretreatment plus CF or MF was required to convert GF rabbits to the normal state.  (+info)

Establishment of specific pathogen-free rabbit colonies with limited-flora rabbits associated with conventional rabbit flora, and monitoring of their cecal flora. (7/746)

In the present study we attempted to establish specific-pathogen-free (SPF) rabbit breeding colonies with two groups of limited-flora (LF) rabbits, both ex-germfree rabbits, and their offspring. Two groups of LF rabbits associated with cecal flora of conventional (CV) rabbits produced in a previous study [Exp. Animals, submitted], were transferred to individual barrier rooms and some of the LF rabbits were accommodated in isolators to maintain the basic flora for SPF rabbits. The composition of the cecal flora of LF rabbits was stable for a long period; bacteroides remained predominant and clostridia dominant. From the SPF rabbits, different types of bacteria, e.g., enterobacteriaceae and streptococci, which could not be isolated in the isolator were detected at a low population level at an early stage in the establishment of the SPF colonies, but the basic composition of the cecal flora was mainly bacteroidaceae and clostridia and did not change over a long period, and the floral composition became similar to that of CV rabbits. The fertility and weaning rates of the SPF rabbits were satisfactory for a SPF rabbit colony. In addition, these SPF colonies were free of more than one year rabbit-specific pathogens.  (+info)

Leukocyte differential analysis in multiple laboratory species by a laser multi-angle polarized light scattering separation method. (8/746)

Leukocyte differential analysis was performed in various species, particularly laboratory animals, by the laser multi-angle polarized light scattering separation method. Venous blood specimens were drawn from the following subjects: healthy adult men and women ("humans"); cynomolgus monkeys ("monkeys"); common marmosets ("marmosets"); beagle dogs ("dogs"); miniature potbelly pigs ("swine"); Japanese white rabbits ("rabbits"); Hartley guinea pigs ("guinea pigs"); and Sprague-Dawley rats ("rats"). 90 degrees/10 degrees scatter plot: Basophils and mononuclear-polymorphonuclear cells were separated in all subjects, but individual 10 degrees and 90 degrees scatter plots overlapped in dogs and guinea pigs, respectively. 90 degrees depolarized /90 degrees scatter plot: Neutrophils and eosinophils were clearly separated in human, monkey, guinea pig, swine and rat subjects. The eosinophil cluster was not clearly plotted in marmoset, dog, or rabbit. 0 degree/10 degrees scatter plot: Regarding this plot for monocytes and lymphocytes, cells were plotted in the following order in all subjects: lymphocytes < basophils < or = monocytes in the 0 degree (size) scatter; and lymphocytes [symbol: see text] monocytes < or = basophils in the 10 degrees (complexity) scatter. Compared to other species, the rat scatter showed a tendency to overlapping plots in both the 0 degree and 10 degrees scatters in the monocyte and lymphocyte clusters. In both dog and guinea pig, the monocyte and neutrophil plots overlapped in the 0 degree and 10 degrees scatters. Basobox: In the human and rabbit subjects, the basophil cluster was plotted within the established basobox, but no clear cell cluster was plotted in the other subjects. As a result of comparing the percentage values for leukocytes in various species obtained by using the CD3500 apparatus versus the corresponding values obtained manually, good correspondence was found in the monkey, and eosinophils in the marmoset were lower with CD3500 than manually. In the rabbit, the mean measured value for basophils matched in the manual and CD3500 findings. In the guinea pig, the CD3500 values were lower than the manual values for lymphocytes, but higher for monocytes and neutrophils. The above findings suggest that the laser multi-angle polarized light scattering separation method is indeed capable of analyzing leukocytes from various species based on cell size and cell complexity, i.e., the presence or absence of nuclei, granules and cell enclosures.  (+info)

To date there is no universally accepted protocol for induction, maintenance and recovery from anesthesia. The endotracheal intubation with the use of inhalation anesthesia is used very especially in the from of large size laboratory animals, because it is a secure and easy control mode. However, it is not common for small laboratory animals because of the high technical skills required.

Xenopus laevis, the African clawed frog, is commonly used in developmental and toxicology research studies. Little information is available on aged X. laevis; however, with the complete mapping of the genome and the availability of transgenic animal models, the number of aged animals in research colonies is increasing. The goals of this study were to obtain biochemical and hematologic parameters to establish reference intervals for aged X. laevis and to compare results with those from young adult X. laevis. Blood samples were collected from laboratory reared, female frogs (n = 52) between the ages of 10 and 14 y. Reference intervals were generated for 30 biochemistry analytes and full hematologic analysis; these data were compared with prior results for young X. laevis from the same vendor. Parameters that were significantly higher in aged compared with young frogs included calcium, calcium:phosphorus ratio, total protein, albumin, HDL, amylase, potassium, CO2, and uric acid. Parameters found to ...

EFPIAs goals are to accelerate the development of and access to integrated healthcare solutions for unmet medical needs in the interests of patients and society at large. This often requires a paradigm shift in research, regulatory and medical practice. The paradigm change also encompasses furthering the welfare of animals used in research and testing, which in turn contributes to high quality science. Having recently joined EFPIA, I have seen already that these goals of accelerating innovation and protecting laboratory animals are interconnected and reflected in EFPIA policies and scientific activities. Part of this paradigm shift is grounded in the 3Rs Principles. The Rs stand for: reduction (using fewer animals); refinement (modifying procedures or husbandry and care practices so as to minimise the suffering of animals); and replacement, whereby methods, strategies or approaches that do not use live animals are employed). Established in 1959 by William Russell and Rex Burch in their book

Introduction. Serendipity is defined as "luck that takes the form of finding valuable or pleasant things that are not looked for." (1). This anthology provides examples of scientific serendipity. This will introduce a number of scientists, inventions, and theories that all came about because of serendipity. This theme was clear throughout the books that we read during the semester and we wanted to prove that serendipity really exists in the scientific community as well as the world around us.. ...

Investigation of whether molecular techniques have advanced far enough that laboratory animals are no longer needed. Covers what animals are used, how, and why.
Adolescence is a conserved developmental period characterized by ontogenetic alterations in brain and behavior that often bear notable similarities across species, including increases in peer-directed social behaviors, risk-taking, as well as elevated per occasion use of alcohol. Studies using a rodent model of adolescence have shown that, seemingly due in part to age differences in brain function and in expression of acute tolerance, adolescents are more resistant than are adults to alcohol effects that normally serve as cues to moderate drinking, while conversely showing greater sensitivity to ethanol-induced social stimulation. To the extent that these findings in laboratory animals are relevant to human adolescents, this developmental blending of enhanced/attenuated ethanol sensitivities may encourage relatively high levels of consumption, particularly among adolescents who are otherwise at risk for especially elevated alcohol intake because of genetic or environmentally associated ...

While at MIT, Ira and I concentrated mostly on the E. coli mutant Gro15. Although the vast majority of λcl− phage are unable to form plaques on this strain, I noted the appearance, at an approximate frequency of 10−7, of phage mutants that were able to somehow compensate for the gro15 block. Interestingly, none of the phage mutants isolated on Gro15 formed plaques on our other mutant, GroC3. Searching for clues as to their nature, I purified many of these gro15 compensatory phage mutants and tested them for growth on standard E. coli laboratory strains, including supD, supE, supF (am-suppressing), and various sup0 (nonsuppressing) wild-type bacterial hosts. To my great surprise and delight, ∼20% of these λ compensatory mutants did not form plaques on any of the wild-type sup0 E. coli tested, but did grow on all of the various am-suppressing wild-type strains. Thus, these phage compensatory mutants carried a suppressible am mutation in some essential, yet unknown, phage gene. This finding ...

The book tended to cycle through four main ways of explaining reasons behind why girls act the way they do; scientific experiments with lots of complicated sounding terms and processes, stories of the authors experiences as well as those of her patients, and studies/experiments. I tend to not even be able to focus on terms that sound too scientific while doing any sort of reading, so Im not going to lie and say that my eyes didnt glaze over when I read giant paragraphs with just scientific words like vasopressin and androstenedione and allopregnanolone. However, I think that the scientific explanations were essential, otherwise the author would have lost a lot of credibility. So Ill forgive her. Also, the patient stories often were conveniently sandwiched between the scienc-y stuff, so it was like reading a novel (thus, bearable). ...

Going down the story-line a bit further - Dr. O is known a procedure called Prolotherapy. Its a sugar-water injection into the joint. Read the link. At the time I was having insane headaches almost every week. I did not describe them as a Migraine specifically because I always believed migraines made the person sick to their stomach and I just felt like my head was going to combust. I was mostly functional except for one time that just broke the camels back. It felt like some claws were gripping the base of my neck and wrapping their fingers around the back of my skull. I orginally had an appointment to try the prolotherapy on my hands they hurt so bad,b ut after that weekend I changed my session to my neck and shoulders. This can take up to 4-5 procedures to get a result by the way. The photo looks gruesome but believe me, it didnt hurt that bad. Felt like I had strained some muscles for a couple days, thats it. Without going into Prolotherapy too much, overall, I did this twice so far and ...
There are days when becoming a wine bore seems the best decision I ever made. One such time was last Saturday. My father had been to the local auction house and bought a job lot of old wine for £50.

These days, if Im lucky, I get a chance to really soak maybe once a week (showers the rest of the time). And as I said, there is quite a bit of front-end work that goes into my being able to buy a good 45 minute soak.. Tonite when I close the door and press the lock button with my thumb, the clicking sound of the lock makes me feel giddy! Almost instantly, my shoulders drop in relaxation, my face relaxes and a quiet sigh emanates from my very being. I lean over the huge soaker tub and turn on the scalding water, pull the stopper to activate the spray wand and give the tub a good rinse. After adjusting the water temp to just good-n-hot, I turn the knob that plugs the tub, pour in one of my assortment of bath salts, gels, or soaking bubbles and watch eagerly as the water instantly foams up. The yummy scent of papaya mango wafts up ~ delicious! I realize, not for the first time, that my sanity depends on these snatches of warm relaxation ...

Turns out, mind over matter only takes you so far. Seven years ago, I began to have trouble walking. My balance became erratic. I lost sensation in my feet and miscellaneous reflexes disappeared. I went to doctors, orthopedic hot shots. All of them said I need a new spinal fusion, the old one having fallen apart over the long years. Diagnosis: Horrible spine. Solution: New fusion in which I get screwed together using metal rods. After surgery, I would be in even more pain than now, but my spine would be stable. Say what?

Now Im not positive that what Ive been going through for days can be characterized as "common", nor do my symptoms seem like anything as "disease-lite" as a cold. But my congestion, runny nose, sneezing, cough, and ever-popular "general malaise" are all listed as likely symptoms. Perhaps they are even aggravated by my need to punish my sensitive membranes with intermittent smoke breaks. Certainly cigarettes are not listed among the treatment options. Indeed I become most aware that I have an addiction when I am sick... the usual enjoyment of smoking is lost on me, yet still I feel compelled to put myself through another bout ...
Its weird. It makes me think of the fact that high school is technically more than half over. Im so excited for college, but the fact that the structure that comes with K-12 schooling is going to cease to exist for us in less than a hundred days scares the crap out of me. Yes we have more freedom to choose our classes and whatnot in high school, but were still babied, and adults still hold our hands through everything. Most are friends with the people theyve known since they were in elementary in middle school. When college starts, some of us are going to be in Minnesota still (me). Some are going to be in Iowa, or Wisconsin, or Michigan. Heck, some people wont even be in this country anymore. I just. I want to have a giant group hug with everyone, even the people I dont like (sorry). Just once ...
Dragonflies hummed about, the sun glinting off their metallic bodies and shining through their lace wings. The water skeeters would skate about on the surface, their legs leaving tiny dimples in the water. The "seaweed" that grew on the bottom rippled in the current and was lush and green, every year it would bloom with tiny white flowers. I used to drape it over my head for mermaid hair. It always smelled wet and green, but oh so good. As fall arrived and the cat tails ripened, we would gather the catkins and burst them by hitting them onto the road, they would explode in great silken puffs that swirled in the slightest breeze. Soon the fluff would be everywhere, clinging to clothes, up noses, in eyes, but they were so soft...and extremely flammable. My brother and I would steal the matches and lay out great swathes of the fluff and then quickly light and throw a match on it. It was instant ignition and with a great WHOOFFF and an instant of searing heat, it would all be gone. Were quite lucky ...

Opening The Laboratory Door: National and International Legal Responsibilities for the Use of Animals in Scientific Research-- An Australian Perspective † Katrina Sharman * One of the greatest delusions in the world is the hope that the evils in this world are to be cured by legislation. Thomas Brackett Reed (1839-1902) When I first set out to write this article in the Spring of 2004, I sought to explore how the lives of laboratory animals could be improved within a legal system that classifies them as property, with no rights and no fundamental interests. I thought then (and think now) that the use of animals in scientific research is one of the hardest issues to write about in animal law. As advocates for the voiceless, we are torn between striving for a system that prohibits the use of animals for scientific purposes and recognising that liberation from the laboratory may be a long time coming. Despite the ethical objections that advocates such as myself have towards the use of animals in ...
Advanced laboratory facilities support the Centers two scientific teams: Building Energy Efficiency and Solar Photovoltaic Modules and also benefit of CSEs industry and higher education research partners. These include durability and material testing laboratories for building products and integrated building systems testing. The ability to deploy and evaluate these systems in an actual operating building creates a unique opportunity for in-depth research. The goal is to reduce the buildings energy usage by over 50% against previous baselines. Some of the building industrys leading systems and materials are being used in the building and will be evaluated over time. Recommendations and further research and testing based on the findings will support future improvement goals in the industry. Energy consumption, long-term durability and user comfort are all key components of the evaluations.. One of the buildings experimental retrofits include the installation of a variety of building ...

We present a forward-modeling simulation framework designed to model the data products from the Dark Energy Survey (DES). This forward-model process can be thought of as a transfer function-amapping from cosmological/ astronomical signals to the final data products used by the scientists.Using output from the cosmological simulations (the Blind Cosmology Challenge), we generate simulated images (the Ultra Fast Image Simulator) and catalogs representative of the DES data. In this work we demonstrate the framework by simulating the 244 deg2 coadd images and catalogs in five bands for the DES Science Verification data. The simulation output is compared with the corresponding data to show that major characteristics of the images and catalogs can be captured.We also point out several directions of future improvements. Two practical examples-star-galaxy classification and proximity effects on object detection-are then used to illustrate how one can use the simulations to address systematics issues in ...
The Wet Laboratory is a chemical-free laboratory space containing a large, closed indoor saltwater aquarium (~20,000L re-circulating system) as well as bench space, laboratory sinks and two large dissection tables immediately outside the laboratory. Bench space can be utilised for either salt or freshwater tanks requiring isolation from the main aquarium system. The main system has three large tanks (1,000, 4,000 and a 12,000L tanks). In addition, three racks can house up to 12 standard tanks per rack. Racks can be dismantled and replaced by two 400L round or 2 x 1,000L oval tanks or other tanks as required. A 1,000L self-contained aquarium is also available and can be either isolated or connected to the main system.. Water of a high quality is maintained through regular water changes (salt water pumped from Moreton Bay) and daily water quality monitoring. Staff provide researchers and groups with assistance in housing, caring and feeding of research animals.. ...
My PhD was concerned with the detection and alleviation of pain and distress in laboratory rodents, predominately focussing on post-operative pain. I used manual and automated behavioural scoring methods alongside nociceptive and anxiety testing methods in order to gain knowledge of the pain and distress surgery may cause to laboratory rodents. The overall objective of this project was in order to identify suitable analgesic regimes to employ for rodents undergoing surgical procedures thus improving the welfare of rodents used in various aspects of medical research.. Previous work focused on determining if mice used in cancer research experience pain, and if so, to determine when this occurs and its severity. Using automated behaviour analysis alongside conditioned place preference and nociceptive testing we hope to identify specifically when pain does present in order to refine end points for studies and improve welfare.. Current work involves investigating early detection of health and welfare ...

Mom, whats for lunch?" Startled, I looked up the clock to see it was just 10 minutes to our lunch time. I was deeply immersed in some cleaning chore and had lost count of time.

Laboratory animal allergy (LAA) is an occupational disease of laboratory animal technicians and scientists. It manifests as an allergic response to animal urine, specifically the major urinary proteins (Mups) of rodents, and can lead to the development of asthma. A study of 5641 workers in Japan who were exposed to laboratory animals found 23.1% had one or more allergic symptoms; globally the prevalence among at risk workers is estimated between 11 and 30% According to the National Institutes of Health, prevention of animal allergy depends on the control of allergens in the work environment. This involves a combination of measures to eliminate or control allergen exposure, including engineering controls, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment. The protein product of the mouse Mup17 gene, known as Mus m 1, Ag1 or MA1, accounts for much of the allergenic properties of mouse urine. Similarly, the product of the rat Mup13 gene, Rat n 1, is also a potent human allergen. One study ...

Specifically, both the practice of animal experimentation and ethical concerns about it have a long history, going virtually back to the ancient Greek period and continuing to the present day. With new breakthroughs in science and technology, it is likely that this practice will be with us for a long time to come. Thus, this book provides an interdisciplinary approach to the topic by utilizing the insights of cognitive ethology, philosophy, science, and Christian theology in order to present a benign approach to the ethical treatment of experimental animals. The reality and existence of animal minds, animal pain, and animal suffering provide the foundation for animal rights, and subsequently, for more positive treatment. Concrete suggestions are offered with regard to more humane animal legislation, improved animal husbandry conditions, as well as concrete guidelines that offset the burdens to animals against the benefits to
A study on prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites of laboratory animals was conducted from November 2009 to March 2010 at the Ethiopian Health and Nutrition Research Institute (EHNRI), Addis Ababa. For this study, faecal samples were collected from a total of 210 laboratory animals which include 140 mice (Swiss albino), 56 rats (Wistar) and 14 guinea pigs (Cavia porcellus). The collected faecal samples were examined by simple faecal flotation techniques for isolation of parasitic eggs and/or oocysts. Out of 210 faecal samples examined, 79 (37.62%) were infected with gastrointestinal parasites. There was significant difference (P,0.05) in prevalence of gastrointestinal parasites in rats, mice and guinea pigs with prevalence of 41.07, 30 and 100%, respectively. Nematodes, cestodes and Eimeria caviae have been detected. Among nematode parasites, the prevalence of Aspiculuris tetraptera and Syphacia obvelata were found with prevalence of 21.43 and 1.43%, respectively. The highest prevalence of ...
