A genus of the family Chinchillidae which consists of three species: C. brevicaudata, C. lanigera, and C. villidera. They are used extensively in biomedical research.
Inflammation of the MIDDLE EAR including the AUDITORY OSSICLES and the EUSTACHIAN TUBE.
The space and structures directly internal to the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE and external to the inner ear (LABYRINTH). Its major components include the AUDITORY OSSICLES and the EUSTACHIAN TUBE that connects the cavity of middle ear (tympanic cavity) to the upper part of the throat.
A basement membrane in the cochlea that supports the hair cells of the ORGAN OF CORTI, consisting keratin-like fibrils. It stretches from the SPIRAL LAMINA to the basilar crest. The movement of fluid in the cochlea, induced by sound, causes displacement of the basilar membrane and subsequent stimulation of the attached hair cells which transform the mechanical signal into neural activity.
The cochlear part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The cochlear nerve fibers originate from neurons of the SPIRAL GANGLION and project peripherally to cochlear hair cells and centrally to the cochlear nuclei (COCHLEAR NUCLEUS) of the BRAIN STEM. They mediate the sense of hearing.
An oval semitransparent membrane separating the external EAR CANAL from the tympanic cavity (EAR, MIDDLE). It contains three layers: the skin of the external ear canal; the core of radially and circularly arranged collagen fibers; and the MUCOSA of the middle ear.
The part of the inner ear (LABYRINTH) that is concerned with hearing. It forms the anterior part of the labyrinth, as a snail-like structure that is situated almost horizontally anterior to the VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH.
The electric response of the cochlear hair cells to acoustic stimulation.
A narrow passageway that connects the upper part of the throat to the TYMPANIC CAVITY.
A mobile chain of three small bones (INCUS; MALLEUS; STAPES) in the TYMPANIC CAVITY between the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE and the oval window on the wall of INNER EAR. Sound waves are converted to vibration by the tympanic membrane then transmitted via these ear ossicles to the inner ear.
A species of HAEMOPHILUS found on the mucous membranes of humans and a variety of animals. The species is further divided into biotypes I through VIII.
Three long canals (anterior, posterior, and lateral) of the bony labyrinth. They are set at right angles to each other and are situated posterosuperior to the vestibule of the bony labyrinth (VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH). The semicircular canals have five openings into the vestibule with one shared by the anterior and the posterior canals. Within the canals are the SEMICIRCULAR DUCTS.
Inflammation of the middle ear with a clear pale yellow-colored transudate.
Poisoning caused by the ingestion of mycotoxins (toxins of fungal origin).
The lower chamber of the COCHLEA, extending from the round window to the helicotrema (the opening at the apex that connects the PERILYMPH-filled spaces of scala tympani and SCALA VESTIBULI).
The top portion of the pharynx situated posterior to the nose and superior to the SOFT PALATE. The nasopharynx is the posterior extension of the nasal cavities and has a respiratory function.
Infections with bacteria of the genus HAEMOPHILUS.
Use of sound to elicit a response in the nervous system.
A type of non-ionizing radiation in which energy is transmitted through solid, liquid, or gas as compression waves. Sound (acoustic or sonic) radiation with frequencies above the audible range is classified as ultrasonic. Sound radiation below the audible range is classified as infrasonic.
The audibility limit of discriminating sound intensity and pitch.
Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
The vestibular part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The vestibular nerve fibers arise from neurons of Scarpa's ganglion and project peripherally to vestibular hair cells and centrally to the VESTIBULAR NUCLEI of the BRAIN STEM. These fibers mediate the sense of balance and head position.
The shell-like structure projects like a little wing (pinna) from the side of the head. Ear auricles collect sound from the environment.
The narrow passage way that conducts the sound collected by the EAR AURICLE to the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
Transmission of sound waves through vibration of bones in the SKULL to the inner ear (COCHLEA). By using bone conduction stimulation and by bypassing any OUTER EAR or MIDDLE EAR abnormalities, hearing thresholds of the cochlea can be determined. Bone conduction hearing differs from normal hearing which is based on air conduction stimulation via the EAR CANAL and the TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
The branch of physics that deals with sound and sound waves. In medicine it is often applied in procedures in speech and hearing studies. With regard to the environment, it refers to the characteristics of a room, auditorium, theatre, building, etc. that determines the audibility or fidelity of sounds in it. (From Random House Unabridged Dictionary, 2d ed)

Middle ear fluid cytokine and inflammatory cell kinetics in the chinchilla otitis media model. (1/311)

Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most frequent microbe causing middle ear infection. The pathophysiology of pneumococcal otitis media has been characterized by measurement of local inflammatory mediators such as inflammatory cells, lysozyme, oxidative metabolic products, and inflammatory cytokines. The role of cytokines in bacterial infection has been elucidated with animal models, and interleukin (IL)-1beta, IL-6, and IL-8 and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) are recognized as being important local mediators in acute inflammation. We characterized middle ear inflammatory responses in the chinchilla otitis media model after injecting a very small number of viable pneumococci into the middle ear, similar to the natural course of infection. Middle ear fluid (MEF) concentrations of IL-1beta, IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-alpha were measured by using anti-human cytokine enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay reagents. IL-1beta showed the earliest peak, at 6 h after inoculation, whereas IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-alpha concentrations were increasing 72 h after pneumococcal inoculation. IL-6, IL-8, and TNF-alpha but not IL-1beta concentrations correlated significantly with total inflammatory cell numbers in MEF, and all four cytokines correlated significantly with MEF neutrophil concentration. Several intercytokine correlations were significant. Cytokines, therefore, participate in the early middle ear inflammatory response to S. pneumoniae.  (+info)

The ultrastructural appearance of the pars distalis of the Plains viscacha is described. Of particular interest are the prolactin cells and stellate cells and the intercellular cysts or channels which may be part of a transport system for hormones.  (+info)

Protection against development of otitis media induced by nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae by both active and passive immunization in a chinchilla model of virus-bacterium superinfection. (3/311)

Three separate studies, two involving active-immunization regimens and one involving a passive-transfer protocol, were conducted to initially screen and ultimately more fully assess several nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae outer membrane proteins or their derivatives for their relative protective efficacy in chinchilla models of otitis media. Initial screening of these antigens (P5-fimbrin, lipoprotein D, and P6), delivered singly or in combination with either Freund's adjuvant or alum, indicated that augmented bacterial clearance from the nasopharynx, the middle ears, or both anatomical sites could be induced by parenteral immunization with P5-fimbrin combined with lipoprotein D, lipoprotein D alone, or the synthetic chimeric peptide LB1 (derived from P5-fimbrin), respectively. Data from a second study, wherein chinchillas were immunized with LB1 or lipoprotein D, each delivered with alum, again indicated that clearance of nontypeable H. influenzae could be augmented by immunization with either of these immunogens; however, when this adjuvant was used, both antibody titers in serum and efficacy were reduced. A third study was performed to investigate passive delivery of antisera directed against either LB1, lipoprotein D, nonacylated lipoprotein D, or a unique recombinant peptide designated LPD-LB1(f)2,1,3. The last three antiserum pools were generated by using the combined adjuvant of alum plus monophosphoryl lipid A. Passive transfer of sera specific for LB1 or LPD-LB1(f)2,1,3 to adenovirus-compromised chinchillas, prior to intranasal challenge with nontypeable H. influenzae, significantly reduced the severity of signs and incidence of otitis media which developed (P +info)

Blood-borne, albumin-bound prostaglandin E2 may be involved in fever. (4/311)

Although the involvement of blood-borne PGE2 in fever has been hypothesized by several authors and has substantial experimental support, the current literature often rejects this hypothesis because several attempts to induce fever by a peripheral PGE2 failed. However, it is usually ignored that the amphipathic molecules of PGE2 are readily self-associating and that such an aggregation could have prevented the peripherally administered PGE2 (free form) from expressing its pyrogenic activity, thus leading to false negative results. To ensure disaggregation of PGE2, we prepared its complex within a carrier protein, human serum albumin (HSA). HSA was purified with activated charcoal and polymixin B-polyacrylamide gel and incubated with PGE2 for 1 h at 37 degrees C. Adult Chinchilla rabbits were injected intravenously with PGE2-HSA complex in either the higher (75 micrograms/kg PGE2:30 mg/kg HSA) or the lower (15 micrograms/kg:6 mg/kg) dose, and the rectal temperature (Tr) was measured. In the controls, either the ligand alone or the carrier alone was administered. At the higher dose, neither free PGE2 nor albumin alone was pyrogenic, whereas the PGE2-HSA complex produced a fever characterized by a short latency (<10 min) and a maximal Tr rise of 0.7 +/- 0.2 degrees C. At the lower dose, none of the substances affected the Tr. This study demonstrates a marked pyrogenic activity of the intravenous PGE2-HSA, but not of the free PGE2. Administration of a preformed complex may be more physiologically relevant than administration of the free ligand because of the ligand's disaggregation, protection from enzymatic degradation, and facilitated delivery to targets. Our study supports the hypothesis that peripheral PGE2 is involved in fever genesis.  (+info)

Responses of cochlear nucleus units in the chinchilla to iterated rippled noises: analysis of neural autocorrelograms. (5/311)

Temporal encoding of stimulus features related to the pitch of iterated rippled noises was studied for single units in the chinchilla cochlear nucleus. Unlike other periodic complex sounds that produce pitch, iterated rippled noises have neither periodic waveforms nor highly modulated envelopes. Infinitely iterated rippled noise (IIRN) is generated when wideband noise (WBN) is delayed (tau), attenuated, and then added to (+) or subtracted from (-) the undelayed WBN through positive feedback. The pitch of IIRN[+, tau, -1 dB] is at 1/tau, whereas the pitch of IIRN[-, tau, -1 dB] is at 1/2tau. Temporal responses of cochlear nucleus units were measured using neural autocorrelograms. Synchronous responses as shown by peaks in neural autocorrelograms that occur at time lags corresponding to the IIRN tau can be observed for both primarylike and chopper unit types. Comparison of the neural autocorrelograms in response to IIRN[+, tau, -1 dB] and IIRN[-, tau, -1 dB] indicates that the temporal discharge of primarylike units reflects the stimulus waveform fine structure, whereas the temporal discharge patterns of chopper units reflect the stimulus envelope. The pitch of IIRN[+/-, tau, -1 dB] can be accounted for by the temporal discharge patterns of primarylike units but not by the temporal discharge of chopper units. To quantify the temporal responses, the height of the peak in the neural autocorrelogram at a given time lag was measured as normalized rate. Although it is well documented that chopper units give larger synchronous responses than primarylike units to the fundamental frequency of periodic complex stimuli, the largest normalized rates in response to IIRN[+, tau, -1 dB] were obtained for primarylike units, not chopper units. The results suggest that if temporal encoding is important in pitch processing, then primarylike units are likely to be an important cochlear nucleus subsystem that carries the pitch-related information to higher auditory centers.  (+info)

Peripherin immunoreactivity labels small diameter vestibular 'bouton' afferents in rodents. (6/311)

Recent morphophysiological studies have described three different subpopulations of vestibular afferents. The purpose of this study was to determine whether peripherin, a 56-kDa type III intermediate filament protein present in small sensory neurons in dorsal root ganglion and spiral ganglion cells, would also label thin vestibular afferents. Peripherin immunohistochemistry was done on vestibular sensory organs (cristae ampullares, utriculi and sacculi) of chinchillas, rats, and mice. In these sensory organs, immunoreactivity was confined to the extrastriolar region of the utriculus and the peripheral region of the crista. The labelled terminals were all boutons, except for an occasional calyx. In vestibular ganglia, immunoreactivity was restricted to small vestibular ganglion cells with thin axons. The immunoreactive central axons of vestibular ganglion cells form narrow bundles as they pass through the caudal spinal trigeminal tract. As they exit this tract, several bundles coalesce to form a single, narrow bundle passing caudally through the ventral part of the lateral vestibular nucleus. Finally, we conclude that all labelled axons and terminals were vestibular afferents rather than efferents, as no immunoreactivity in the vestibular efferent nucleus of the brainstem was observed.  (+info)

High-frequency dynamics of regularly discharging canal afferents provide a linear signal for angular vestibuloocular reflexes. (7/311)

Regularly discharging vestibular-nerve afferents innervating the semicircular canals were recorded extracellularly in anesthetized chinchillas undergoing high-frequency, high-velocity sinusoidal rotations. In the range from 2 to 20 Hz, with peak velocities of 151 degrees/s at 6 Hz and 52 degrees/s at 20 Hz, 67/70 (96%) maintained modulated discharge throughout the sinusoidal stimulus cycle without inhibitory cutoff or excitatory saturation. These afferents showed little harmonic distortion, no dependence of sensitivity on peak amplitude of stimulation, and no measurable half-cycle asymmetry. A transfer function fitting the data predicts no change in sensitivity (gain) of regularly discharging afferents over the frequencies tested but shows a phase lead with regard to head velocity increasing from 0 degrees at 2 Hz to 30 degrees at 20 Hz. These results indicate that regularly discharging afferents provide a plausible signal to drive the angular vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) even during high-frequency head motion but are not a likely source for nonlinearities present in the VOR.  (+info)

Evaluation of the virulence of a Streptococcus pneumoniae neuraminidase-deficient mutant in nasopharyngeal colonization and development of otitis media in the chinchilla model. (8/311)

Considerable evidence has implicated Streptococcus pneumoniae neuraminidase in the pathogenesis of otitis media (OM); however, its exact role has not been conclusively established. Recently, an S. pneumoniae neuraminidase-deficient mutant, DeltaNA1, has been constructed by insertion-duplication mutagenesis of the nanA gene of S. pneumoniae strain D39. The relative ability of DeltaNA1 and the D39 parent strain to colonize the nasopharynx and to induce OM subsequent to intranasal inoculation and to survive in the middle ear cleft after direct challenge of the middle ear were evaluated in the chinchilla model. Nasopharyngeal colonization data indicate a significant difference in the ability of the DeltaNA1 mutant to colonize as well as to persist in the nasopharynx. The neuraminidase-deficient mutant was eliminated from the nasopharynx 2 weeks earlier than the D39 parent strain. Both the parent and the mutant exhibited similar virulence levels and kinetics during the first week after direct inoculation of the middle ear. The DeltaNA1 neuraminidase-deficient mutant, however, was then completely eliminated from the middle ear by day 10 postchallenge, 11 days before the D39 parent strain. Data from this study indicate that products of the nanA gene have an impact on the ability of S. pneumoniae to colonize and persist in the nasopharynx as well as the middle ear.  (+info)

The long-tailed chinchilla (Chinchilla lanigera), also called the Chilean, coastal, common chinchilla, or lesser chinchilla, is one of two species of rodents from the genus Chinchilla, the other species being Chinchilla chinchilla. Wild populations of C. lanigera occur in Aucó, near Illapel, IV Región, Chile (31°38S, 71°06W), in Reserva Nacional Las Chinchillas and in La Higuera, about 100 km (62 mi) north of Coquimbo (29°33S, 71°04W) Chilean chinchillas were reported from Talca (35°30S), Chile, reaching north to Peru and eastward from Chilean coastal hills throughout low mountains. By the mid-19th century, Chilean chinchillas were not found south of the Choapa River.. The gene annotation process was carried out using a combination of protein-to-genome alignments, annotation mapping from a suitable reference species and RNA-seq alignments (where RNA-seq data with appropriate meta data were publicly available). For each candidate gene region, a selection process was applied to choose ...
The Chinchilla is a member of the rodent family originating from the Andes Region of South America. Chinchillas are the most exotic rodents in the world because of their dense and soft fur and hence their pelts are very popular for fur coats.. There are basically 2 species of chinchillas, Chinchilla brevicaudata and Chinchilla lanigera. Both species have long hind limbs, short forelimbs, four toes and flexible digits. The C.bevicaudata is thicker in the neck and shoulders and has a shorter tail. C.lanigera has a more pointy face, elongated ears, narrower neck and more slender body.. Both species were originally brought to the United States to be bred as fur producers. Since C.lanigera adapted better to captivity and reproduce better, C.brevicaudata was eventually dropped from most fur-farming ranches. The Standard Grey is the original color but when chinchilla trade grew, demand for variety gave rise to a new trend - color mutation. Colors available are Beige, Silver or Pink White, Black Velvet, ...
The presence of C and D assemblages typical for canids, and E from hoofed livestock, in chinchillas is quite interesting. In this work, the existence of assemblages E in farms BG and RG can be explained by acquiring animals from farms in which ruminants were also kept, the direct or indirect contact between the two species being possible.. Generally, multiple factors can explain the diversity of assemblages identified across the world. Interspecies transmission is of particular importance for the zoonotic risk of infection, domestic animals being the source of human infection. Reverse or cross-species transmission of different assemblages (BIV, E) has also been demonstrated in areas where humans, primates and livestock overlap in their use of habitat [33]. Interspecific transmission is possible between species belonging to different taxa, from rodents to carnivores and from ruminants to humans [34]. It is also proven that G. duodenalis from the North American beaver (Castor canadensis) may ...
Chinchilla in most small animals is a c-locus mutation, meaning that it is a partial albino. In rats the situation is quite difficult, and chinchilla is a fairly difficult variety to breed due to the interaction of marking and colour genes needed in order to produce the perfect chinchilla.. Colour-wise, black pigment on a chinchilla rat is exactly the same as an agouti, but the unique colour comes from the removal of all of the yellow pigment. This makes the bands that would be red on an agouti a white or pearl-white colour, so the rat becomes a combination of grey and black hairs ticked with white, with black guard hairs.. The genes for removing the yellow pigment in chinchillas only work in combination with a gene for white markings, which is why chinchilla rats are a marked variety. A chinchilla rat has one copy of this spotting gene - a rat with two copies is either never born, or born as a black eyed white type which dies very young.. Genetics: Agouti, with at least one copy of the fading ...

As a rescue shelter we also take in chinchillas with varying degrees of behavioral issues. Sadly, many of the behavior issues are human induced. One chinchilla came in recently whose former owner clearly did not know how to handle the poor thing. It became so cage aggressive that it actually learned to strike out at the hand that was feeding it-- literally! With many of our potential adopters being families with children or first time chinchilla owners, we make it our policy to NOT rehome aggressive biters unless someone is specifically willing and able to take on a huge challenge. Like toddlers, chinchillas are natural nibblers, and we understand that an exploratory nibble is not a bite. However, there are some chins that have learned to use their teeth in a way that is more than one of curiosity. We do our best to rehabilitate and allow even the most extreme cases to stay as long as we have space for them. We have, however, expanded our chin room to two rooms and long ago gave up our clothes ...

The wild chinchilla lives on a diet of bark, grasses and leaves and has developed a specialized gut which is adapted for this high fibre and coarse diet. The large intestine contains bacteria which break down the grass fibre to make it digestible. The chinchilla passes the fibre through the gut twice to make sure all the nutrients are absorbed. This means that they produce and eat a special kind of faeces (poop) which many owners do not ever see as their chinchilla eats them directly from their bottom. These faeces are dark, sticky and smelly, and are called caecotropes.. Because of this specialised gut and the constantly growing teeth the adult chinchilla needs a high fibre, restricted carbohydrate, restricted protein and virtually no fat diet to stay healthy..

Changes in plasma protein fractions level during pregnancy, lactation and in nonpregnant, nonlactating female chinchillas were investigated. Pregnancy and lactation were divided into following periods: from first to 37th day, from 38th to 74th day, from 75th to 111th day (pregnancy) and from 7th to 20th day, from 30th to 46th day and from 54th to 62nd day (lactation).
Otits media (OM) is the most frequent indication for antimicrobial prescription to US children. Streptococcus pneumoniae (S. pneumoniae) remains one of the most common pathogens causing OM. Successful eradication of S. pneumoniae in the middle ear can be achieved by adhering to a 7-10 day regimen of oral antibiotics. However, oral drug administration is challenging for parents. Lack of adherence has been associated with treatment failure or early relapse. To overcome this challenge, we used a noninvasive formulation to achieve high transtympanic antibiotic flux and cured S. pneumoniae OM in chinchillas. The formulation consists of a thermosensitive in situ gelling hydrogel, chemical permeation enhancers, and an antibiotic. The direct transport of drugs into the middle ear produced high concentrations of ciprofloxacin (in the range of hundreds of micrograms per milliliter) within the first 24 hours of administration. Drug concentrations above the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) for S. ...
A system for numerically modeling evolution of an image propagating through a medium includes image using image data and a propagation medium model. The propagation medium model aligns a propagation centerline of the propagation medium model relative to the center of the image data. The propagation medium model has a numerical operator for applying an index-shifted numerical fractional Fourier transform operation on the image data, and aligning the zero original-domain origin relative to the center of the image data. The image data has spatially-indexed amplitude values and a center located relative to the spatially-indexed amplitude values. The propagation medium model has quadratic phase properties which are defined relative to a propagation centerline of the propagation medium model. Aligning the zero original-domain origin relative to the center of the image data to produces transformed image data having a zero frequency-domain origin that is centered within the transform-domain indices.

This report describes for the first time the occurrence of alveolar echinococcosis in two exotic rodent species in Europe. A pet chinchilla (Chinchilla laniger) was euthanized due to a painful enlargement of the abdominal cavity, and a Prevosts squirrel (Callosciurus prevostii borneoensis) was found dead in the enclosure of a zoo. At necropsy, extended liver lesions consisting of small vesicles and cysts were observed in the livers of both animals. Histological examination revealed that these cysts were composed of an outer, homogenous, eosinophilic layer and an inner, cellular germinal layer. The cysts from both animals contained numerous protoscolices. The morphological diagnosis of Echinococcus multilocularis metacestode infections was confirmed by molecular means. ...
MARTINEZ-PEREIRA, M A y RICKES, E M. The spinal nerves that constitute the lumbosacral plexus and their distribution in the chinchilla. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2011, vol.82, n.3, pp.150-154. ISSN 2224-9435.. In this study, the spinal nerves that constitute the lumbosacral plexus (plexus lumbosacrales) (LSP) and its distribution in Chinchilla lanigera were investigated. Ten chinchillas (6 males and 4 females) were used in this research. The spinal nerves that constitute the LSP were dissected and the distribution of pelvic limb nerves originating from the plexus was examined. The iliohypogastric nerve arose from L1 and L2, giving rise to the cranial and caudal nerves, and the ilioinguinal nerve arose from L3. The other branch of L3 gave rise to the genitofemoral nerve and 1 branch from L4 gave rise to the lateral cutaneous femoral nerve. The trunk formed by the union of L4-5 divided into medial (femoral nerve) and lateral branches (obturator nerve). It was found that the LSP was formed ...
From the print edition. President Laura Chinchilla on Wednesday met with new Legislative Assembly President Victor Granados for the first time since his May 1 election. At Casa Presidencial, the two discussed their priorities for the Costa Rican Congress, which includes pushing bills about security and finances. According to Radio ADN, Chinchilla wants to pass bills on the issues of human trafficking, guns and regulating casinos and bookmakers. Also on the table are bills discussing free trade agreements with Peru, Singapore and China, reforms to the transit law and fiscal transparency.. The government does not consider controversial bills including same-sex unions a priority.. ...
Otitis media (OM), or middle ear infection, accounts for approximately 30 million doctor visits a year in the U.S. The pathogen nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHI) causes the majority of cases of ear infection, including chronic OM, recurrent OM, and OM associated with treatment failure. In the first study of its kind, a team of investigators from Nationwide Childrens Hospital and Tulane University School of Medicine has developed a way to deliver a vaccine against ear infections through the skin, which would prevent the bacteria from causing the disease.. Almost every child will develop an ear infection and unfortunately, some children will have seven or eight before their first birthday, says Laura Novotny, MS, research program manager in the Bakaletz Lab at the Center for Microbial Pathogenesis in The Research Institute at Nationwide Childrens Hospital, and primary author of the recent study, which was published in Clinical and Vaccine Immunology. These chronic infections can ...
Noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) is a major occupational hazard for military personnel. Although considerable evidence points to gender differences in susceptibility to NIHL, the precise nature of these differences, and how they apply to the types of noise characteristic of military settings is currently unknown. During Year 1, experiments were conducted with chinchillas to examine sex differences in (a) basic auditory sensitivity; (b) susceptibility to temporary and permanent threshold shifts (TTS and PTS, respectively) caused by exposure to simulated Ml6 rifle fire; (c) TTS and PTS caused by exposure to 0.5 kHz octave band noise and UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter noise; and (d) the ability to benefit from prophylactic conditioning exposures. The results of these initial experiments point to sex differences in the response of the cochlea to noise, which could have important implications for military assigments and hearing conservation programs.*THRESHOLD EFFECTS
Cornstarch: A painless way to stop bleeding of minor cuts. Saline Solution: To clean and flush wounds before medicating and bandaging. Sterile Gauze pads: Regular gauze or non-stick to cover wounds. Rolled gauze: For wrapping wounds after gauze pad is applied. Vet Wrap: A self sticking elastoplast medical wrap to go over a gauze pad or rolled gauze if an injury is serious. It is very important that you do not wrap this material too tight. It is made of a stretchy material, and it is very easy to wrap a wound too tight which will cut off circulation to the area. Q-Tips: You can use regular Q-tips, but we suggest cosmetic type because they tend to have less of the many loose tiny fibers which can easily get into wounds like regular Q-tips can. Unscented baby wipes: For quick clean up when medicine or hand feeding get on a chins fur or when their feet are dirty due to stepping on soft poops from diarrhea.

Laura Chinchilla may have enjoyed a wide margin in Sunday´s election, but she faces a divided Legislative Assembly when she steps into office on May 8.. Her party, the National Liberation Party (PLN) claimed 23 of the legislature´s 57 seats – as of Monday´s count – down a seat from the incumbent party´s current 24. Analysts expect the process of divvying seats could go on for a couple of days this week, following Sunday´s election.. Twenty-three seats is an unquestionable accomplishment but not quite the 29 needed to move bills through the assembly by the PLN´s effort alone.. The rest of the seats went to the Citizen Action Party (11), the Liberation Movement (10), the Accessibility Without Exclusion Party (four) and the Social Christian Unity Party (six), while the Broad Front Party, the Costa Rican Renovation Party and the National Restoration Party each received one.. Reluctant to comment on the congressional results after the polls closed ...

One of the most common disease conditions of chinchillas is enteritis, which is an infection of the digestive tract. In many cases, the exact cause may not be determined. Bacterial, viral and protozoal agents have all been associated with the syndrome. A few specific agents include Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhimurium, E. coli and Giardia. Poor husbandry and management is often associated with an outbreak. Clinical signs are ariable, ranging from depression to death. The chinchilla often exhibits diarrhea, but not consistently. Other signs of illness include loss of appetite, partial paralysis, and a painful abdomen. Examination of the feces through fecal flotations, direct smears, and cultures may reveal the causative agent. Veterinary care and treatment must be sought at the first sign of illness. Treatment of enteritis involves appropriate antibiotic therapy and supportive care. This disease is often fatal despite aggressive therapy due to the severity of the illness ...
Inbr and colour depends on substrain (see … Inbr and colour depends on substrain (see below). Origin: Dunn 1928 from crosses of coat colour stocks from English fanciers and a chinchilla stock from Castle. This strain has a common origin with strain 101. Most substrains carry the white-bellied agouti gene AW though only a subset have the agouti pattern as many carry albino or chinchilla and/or the pink-eyed dilution gene, p, which is derived from Asian mice of the Mus musculus type (see also strains SJL, P/J and FS/Ei) (Brilliant et al, 1994). It is known for the high incidence of spontaneous testicular teratomas, though the incidence differs between substrains, but more recently it has been the most widely used strain in the production of targeted mutations due to the availability of several lines of embryonic stem cells. Two recent studies show that there is major genetic variation within the 129 family, at least some of which must be attributed to genetic contamination (Threadgill et al, ...

Recent research at Cotzumalhuapa focused on the extensive system of causeways and bridges that linked together the settlements and major architectural compounds of the ancient city. Further excavations investigated a large obsidian workshop dump and associated structures, including possible workshop platforms and a probable sweat bath. Analysis of ceramics from these excavations provides a basis to date of the construction and use of the causeways, and the use of the obsidian workshop area. Analysis of obsidian debris recovered from the dump revealed details on the production of both prismatic blades and projectile points from raw materials imported from highland sources. The location of the workshop suggests a degree of centralized control of the industry.
PLEASE NOTE: If the cages are right next to each other and the sheet is pulled taut around the cage, which can be done by tucking it under the cage, it will be more difficult to pull in. But if your chins cage doesnt have the safe (smaller) mesh width, then he will most likely get a curiosity itch and will try to pull the sheet into his cage, and probably with great success because a larger, unsafe mesh width (which is conducive to accidents) makes it easier for chins to pull things into the cage that they shouldnt. Pulling the sheet in is more of an inconvenience for the chinparent who has to readjust it than a problem for the chin as long as the sheet has no strings, fringe or loose weave that could be pulled loose and accidentally ingested, causing a fatal intestinal blockage. A regular bedsheet or cloth of tight weave may eventually get worn or even get holes from occasional gnawing, but thats not a potential health hazard for the chin ...

And then I stop reading to think about myself in a middle school, where we had so called pet corner. Literal translation live corner - this is a common practice in Russian schools (Im not sure is there something similar in other countries but higly likely, I suppose), though rare nowadays, to have some animals, of whom childrens can take care (or just come to play with) during their day in school. Basically there are some hamsters, rabbits, Guinea pigs, rats, parrots, fishes and turtles, but I attended what was considered a privileged school, so we had also spiders, snakes, owl, some breed of eagle-like or hawk-like bird, little caiman (yeap, Im serious!), piranha and chinchillas. So I seen myself in this girl because I have had a strange looks from others at our pet corner due to my extreme happiness with the sight of feeding snake daily routine, e.g. snake eating little hamster. I was like Wow, it really hunts it down, crawling closer, closer, and than, suddenly - STRIKE! What a REAL ...

Mitochondria is an organelle that is found in all eukaryotes. However, a study conducted by biologist Anna Karnkowska and her team shows the first eukaryote without mitochondria. They experimented and checked Monocercomonoides, a single-celled organism from the guts of a chinchilla, for mitochondria. The genome of this organism had no signs of mitochondrial genes. They also concluded that the proteins needed for mitochondria to function properly were missing. Scientists say that this organism does not require mitochondria because it most likely relies on enzymes to obtain energy and break food. They also state that this organism has borrowed genes from bacteria that synthesize iron and sulfur (used for proteins), which is a critical function of mitochondria that organisms cannot lack. Other scientists, such as B. Franz Lang and Mark van der Giezen, want further analysis and evidence that this eukaryote lacks mitochondria. However, B. Franz Lang says that this study has a ninety percent ...

Thank you so much for the offer, both of holding onto the piggies and the supplies/help. I am good with supplies...well, mostly--the KMS was delayed, apparently by a truck getting in late according to the delivery services site (it was supposed to arrive yesterday) but I expect it will arrive Monday. If not, I already ran out and bought a small bag of Oxbow pellets and have some Oxbow and Sweet Meadow Hay here already so even if it doesnt come by Monday, I have food for the piggies and will just end up giving them a mix of Oxbow and KMS pellets until the Oxbow runs out. If it turns out they prefer Oxbow over KMS, then Ill probably just donate the KMS to a rescue. Im glad youve had luck with cold switches--I prefer to do them since the animals I take in have usually been on a bad diet (my chinchilla, Bruce, was the exception but that was because he was originally meant to be a breeder and show chin and the breeder actually cared about her little brood) but didnt want to do so if it might ...

We recently came across an essay about an extremly uncommon female Kaliko cat that was given up for approval in Silicon Valley. Fewer than 0.1% of all calcicos or tortie are males. And it is likely that this kitty, called Sherman, or any other masculine chinchilla or tortoise was given birth asterile. There is a very particular kitty that has found her way to an old kennel in Silicon Valley, and now the sales reps hope that someone will give her a home forever.. That Sherman is a cottonhound. Which, apparently, is very infrequent. Dr. Andrea Berger, the vet at the Humane Society Silicon Valley, says that the chance that a cotton queen is a man is less than 0.1%. This four months old kitty recently came with the HSV, as a pick-up from one of her twin lodgings, which was full.. Anybody interested in sponsoring Sherman can stop by the Sunnyvale Neighborhood Adoption Center in Petco, 160 East El Camino Real.
