After rapid intravenous injection of procaine HC1 (2.5 mg/Kg) in thoroughbred mares plasma levels of this drug fell rapidly (t 1/2 alpha = 5 min) and then more slowly (t 1/2 beta = 50.2 min). These kinetics were well fitted by a two compartment open model (Model I). This model gave an apparent Vdbeta for procaine in the horse of about 3,500 litres. Since procaine was about 45% bound to equine plasma protein this gives a true Vdbeta for procaine of about 6,500 litres. After subcutaneous injection of procaine HC1 (3.3 mg/Kg) plasma levels peaked at about 400 ng/ml and then declined with a half-life of about 75 minutes. These data were well fitted by Model I when this was modified to include simple first order absorption (K = 0.048 min-1) from the subcutaneous injection site (Model II). After intramuscular injection of procaine penicillin (33,000 I.U./Kg) plasma levels reached a peak at about 270 ng/ml and then declined with a half-life of about 9 hours. These data were approximately fitted by Model II assuming a first order rate constant for absorption of procaine of 0.0024 min-1. After intramuscular injection of procaine HC1 (10 mg/Kg) plasma levels of procaine peaked rapidly at about 600 ng/ml but thereafter declined slowly (+ 1/2 = 2 hours). A satisfactory pharmaco-kinetic model for this intramuscular data could not be developed. An approximation of these data was obtained by assuming the existence of two intramuscular drug compartments, one containing readily absorbable drug and the other poorly absorbable drug (Model III). After intra-articular administration of procaine (0.33 mg/Kg) plasma levels of this drug reached a peak at about 17 ng/ml and then declined with a half-life of about 2 hours. These data were not modelled.  (+info)

The excretion of ibuprofen by the horse - a preliminary report. (2/6740)

The anti-inflammatory drug Ibuprofen [(+/-)-2-(p-isobutylphenyl) propionic acid] was estimated in the blood and urine of a horse using gas-liquid chromatography of the silylated derivative. Levels of the drug in the two body fluids were measured over a period of about 24 hours after administering a 12 gm dose of Ibuprofen. Plasma peak levels were observed within 30 to 60 min, and the drug was no longer detectable in the plasma by 8 hr. Urinary peak levels were observed 200 to 300 min after dosing, and the drug was no longer detectable in the urine by about 28 hr. It was observed that only 2% to 6% of the free unchanged drug was excreted in the urine.  (+info)

The gas-liquid chromatograph and the electron capture detection in equine drug testing. (3/6740)

Three gas-liquid chromatographic (G.L.C.) procedures discussed have been designed around the four "esses" of detection tests--speed, sensitivity, simplicity, and specificity. These techniques are admirably applicable to the very low plasma drug levels encountered in blood testing under pre-race conditions. The methods are equally applicable to post-race testing procedures, where both blood and urine samples are tested. Drugs can only rarely be detected by the electron capture detector (E.C.D.) without a prior derivatization step, which conveys to the drug(s) high electron affinity. Because of broad applicability, two derivatizing agents, heptafluorobutyric (HFBA) and pentafluorpropionic (PFPA) anhydrides are employed. The three techniques, allowing broad coverage of various drug classes are: 1) direct derivatization of drugs to form strongly electron capturing amides and esters. 2) reductive fragmentation of drugs with lithium aluminum hydride to form alcohols, with conversion to ester derivatives. 3) oxidative fragmentation of drugs with potassium dichromate to form derivatizable groups, followed by direct derivatization.  (+info)

Report on use of XAD resins in racing chemistry. (4/6740)

This report comprises a summary of the work done with XAD resin extraction by racing chemists and reported in the Association of Official Racing Chemists publications. It is apparent that the use of XAD resins is becoming more popular in racing laboratories as a technique for routine screening and also for the extraction of certain conjugated drugs. Most laboratories employ variations on the original Brinkmann Drug-Skreen Technique. Comparisons of the efficiency of extraction of drugs from horse urine by XAD-2 resin and by chloroform column extraction indicate that some drugs can be extracted with equal or greater efficiency by the resin technique.  (+info)

Research and identification of tranquillizers - use of retention index. (5/6740)

At the request of the Service des Haras, our laboratory works on the toxicological problems of the sport-horse. These studies have resulted in the setting up of an anti-doping control for equestrian competitions of various types, not only flat racing. During events, horses, must be calm and docile to the riders' order. Frequently, the latter use tranquillizers to try and win events. The analytical method for the research and identification of these compounds is described. The technique involves successively: 1. alkalinisation of the sample - saliva, blood or urine after enzymatic hydrolysis. 2. extraction with diethyl ether - the recovery is 70% to 90% depending upon the drug. 3. determination by gas-liquid chromatography with use of a retention index for qualitative analysis. We can detect up to fifteen tranquillizers in any one sample, even when present at such low concentrations as found in saliva. The use of the retention index is a reliable method for qualitative analysis. For example, the method has been used for three years, during which period the rentention index of acetylpromazine remained at 3240 +/- 7. The chromatographic analysis was performed on 3% OV-17 at 290 degrees. The chromatographic analysis has been performed by three columns of different polarity (OV-1; OV-17; SP-2250). If on the three columns, the retention index of one peak is the same as that of the tranquilizer, a further confirmation is made with the use of a thermionic detector specific for nitrogenous drugs. In conclusion, this method which is sufficiently precise and specific has been used for anti-doping control.  (+info)

Racing problems in the U.S.A. (6/6740)

The major problems of racing in the United States at the present time are caused by too much racing. This has led to too few horses and small fields. Consequently many owners and trainers are trying to enter their horses too frequently and to race them when they are not really fit to run. The desire to race horses as frequently as possible has led to constant pressure from horsemen through their organizations for so called "permissive medication". Started in the state of Colorado approximately ten years ago this has grown until finally there are only a few states, notably New York and New Jersey that have resisted the pressure. The drug that gave the opening wedge to permissive medication was phenylbutazone, but this in many states has led to the inclusion of other drugs including analgesics and drugs that veterinarians claim are needed for therapeutic purposes. Some states have endeavoured to control phenylbutazone medication by quantitation and while lower limits cause little difficulty, maximum allowable limits have caused problems and are not practical. While there has been no publicity to my knowledge about frusemide (furosemide, lasix) the abuse of this drug for so called "bleeders" is an example that may seriously interfere with drug detection in urine and its use should be confined to proven "bleeders" (i.e. horses suffering from epistaxis). Pre-race blood testing began roughly ten years ago at the harness tracks and has been resisted by our flat tracks rather successfully up to the present time. The blood testing methods and those used by the same laboratories in post-race urine testing is inadequate and will not detect many illegal drugs.  (+info)

Doping control in Japan. An automated extraction procedure for the doping test. (7/6740)

Horse racing in Japan consists of two systems, the National (10 racecourses) and the Regional public racing (32 racecourses) having about 2,500 racing meetings in total per year. Urine or saliva samples for dope testing are collected by the officials from thw winner, second and third, and transported to the laboratory in a frozen state. In 1975, 76, 117 samples were analyzed by this laboratory. The laboratory provides the following four methods of analysis, which are variously combined by request. (1) Method for detection of drugs extracted by chloroform from alkalinized sample. (2) Methods for detection of camphor and its derivatives. (3) Method for detection of barbiturates. (4) Method for detection of ethanol. These methods consist of screening, mainly by thin layer chromatography and confirmatory tests using ultra violet spectrophotometry, gas chromatography and mass spectrometry combined with gas chromatography. In the screening test of doping drugs, alkalinized samples are extracted with chloroform. In order to automate the extraction procedure, the authors contrived a new automatic extractor. They also devised a means of pH adjustment of horse urine by using buffer solution and an efficient mechanism of evaporation of organic solvent. Analytical data obtained by the automatic extractor are presented in this paper. In 1972, we started research work to automate the extraction procedure in method (1) above, and the Automatic Extractor has been in use in routine work since last July. One hundred and twnety samples per hour are extracted automatically by three automatic extractors. The analytical data using this apparatus is presented below.  (+info)

The antidoping control in horseraces in Italy. (8/6740)

The results and the improvement of the analytical procedures adopted for the control of doping in horses will be reported. This control has been systematically carried out in Italy for about 10 years in the laboratories of Italian Federation of Sport and Medicine in which the biological samples for the control of doping in various sport activities (football, cycling, athletics etc.) are also examined. In this way it is possible to use the same instruments for all these similar problems and compare the results. The analytical procedure is based on the following steps: 1) Extraction of the samples (mainly urine but sometimes blood or saliva). 2) Screening tests by thin-layer chromatography. 3) Confirmatory tests by gas chromatography on different columns and also by gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry. These single steps will be separately discussed, and practical problems encountered will be presented.  (+info)

Damage to the origin of the gastrocnemius and superficial digital flexor muscles has been previously reported as an acute injury in both foals and adult horses. This case report describes, for the first time, the clinical onset of caudal reciprocal apparatus failure in a 2-year-old Thoroughbred. These signs were due to injury of the gastrocnemius and superficial digital flexor muscle origins sustained prior to the onset of lameness. This condition should be considered in cases demonstrating similar clinical signs, even in the absence of known trauma or acute injury to the region. ...
Flow cytometry was used to assess the phagocytosis of fluorescent-labelled bacteria by equine peripheral blood neutrophils and pulmonary alveolar macrophages. Cell populations were prepared from venous blood following ammonium chloride lysis and from washed bronchoalveolar lavage derived samples. Discrete clusters of cells, corresponding to different leucocyte groups, were readily identified on the basis of differing light scattering properties and could thus be discriminated, negating the need for prior cell separation. Cells able to associate with fluorescent-labelled bacteria (by attachment to the cell membrane or by internalization within the cell) acquired increased fluorescence and were readily differentiated from cells unable to interact with bacteria. The fluorescence of bacteria attached to the cell surface was quenched by the addition of trypan blue or counterstained by the addition of ethidium bromide to the assay, thus permitting identification of cells which were able to internalize ...
Information on endogenous retroviruses fixed in the horse (Equus caballus) genome is scarce. The recent availability of a draft sequence of the horse genome enables the detection of such integrated viruses by similarity search. Using translated nucleotide fragments from gamma-, beta-, and delta-retroviral genera for initial searches, a full-length beta-retrovirus genome was retrieved from a horse chromosome 5 contig. The provirus, tentatively named EqERV-beta1 (for the first equine endogenous beta-retrovirus), was 10434 nucleotide (nt) in length with the usual retroviral genome structure of 5LTR-gag-pro-pol-env-3LTR. The LTRs were 1361 nt long, and differed approximately 1% from each other, suggestive of a relatively recent integration. Coding sequences for gag, pro and pol were present in three different reading-frames, as common for beta-retroviruses, and the reading frames were completely open, except that the env gene was interrupted by a single stopcodon. No reading frame was apparent ...
In Western Canada, horse populations once numbered in the millions. Currently, unprotected and routinely culled these wild horses are being indiscriminately sent to slaughter for human consumption. An ariel count performed by the ESRD in March 2013 estimated 980 wild horses were living in the Rocky Mountian foothills. 31 per cent of the total wild horse herd has been trapped in the past two seasons and in January of 2014 another record capture season, to cull 200 wild horses, was announced by the ESRD. If we dont act now to study and protect them, Albertas wild horses will be gone and forever lost.. Im calling on all Canadians and the International community to join me in demanding that the Canadian Government, both Provincial and Federal, finally commit to protect our wild horses by creating cohesive legislation under which all our wild horses will be protected and granted the freedom to roam our public Lands, which is as much theirs as it is ours ...
Standardbreds tend to be more muscled and longer bodied than the Thoroughbred. They also are of more placid dispositions, as suits horses whose races involve more strategy and more changes of speed than do Thoroughbred races. Standardbreds are considered people-oriented, easy-to-train horses. They are generally a bit heavier in build than Thoroughbreds, but have refined, solid legs and powerful shoulders and hindquarters. Standardbreds have a wide range of heights, from 14 to 17 hands (56 to 68 inches, 142 to 173 cm), although most are between 15 and 16 hands (60 and 64 inches, 152 and 163 cm).[6] They are most often bay, brown or black,[1] although other colors such as chestnut are seen. Gray and roan are also found.[6] The Standardbred typically weighs between 800 and 1,000 pounds (360 and 450 kg).[1] Their heads are refined and straight with broad foreheads, large nostrils, and shallow mouths. The typical Standardbred body is long, with the withers being well defined, with strong shoulders ...

Background: Exercise-induced pulmonary haemorrhage (EIPH) is commonly implicated as a cause of poor athletic performance but there is limited and conflicting evidence for this association. Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine if EIPH, based on endoscopic examination after racing, is associated with a variety of novel and established performance parameters. Study design: Prospective, observational cross-sectional study. Methods: Thoroughbred racehorses competing between 2012 and 2015 were examined on-course no earlier than 30 min after racing. Examinations were recorded and graded blindly by experienced veterinarians using a 0-4 scale. Linear mixed effect models were used for analysis of continuous response variables with horse name incorporated as a random effect to account for repeated sampling and horse variability. Generalised estimating equations were used for analysis of binary responses. Performance variables were examined in 2 models, comparing EIPH grade 0 to grades 1-4, ...
The wild horse population on the Navajo Nation is booming.. About 48,000 gallop across the reservation according to the tribes Department of Fish and Wildlife. The abundance of wild horses has made Navajo Nation officials consider a horse hunt to help control the population.. So far the plans are in the early stages, and officials say a hunt is not the only option being considered but something needs to be done to solve the feral horse population problem long term.. Horses are competing with other wildlife for natural resources like forage, water and space. The other wildlife includes deer and elk, for example, but the horses are winning out and are taking over the landscape.. An alternative to the hunt is arguably more humane than having hunters take aim on the wild herd. The president of the Salt River Wild Horse Management Group, Simone Netherlands, proposed targeting the horses with birth-control darts instead of killing them.. By using birth-control, Netherlands said the horses population ...

A 2 years old female Thoroughbred horse was presented with an ocular disorder. In initial eye examination, the left eye was diagnosed with severe uveitis including hypopyon. Additionally, a live parasite about 3 cm in length was clearly seen wriggling in the left eye. A modified needle aspiration technique was performed to extract the live eye worm from the anterior chamber of the eye. The patient was recovered without any post-operative complications within 1 month. This modified needle aspiration technique could be an effective procedure for eliminating eye worms in horses. © Medwell Journals, 2014. ...
Summit reveals heinous attitude towards Americas wild horses. U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop of Utah told the wild horse summit, which was held behind closed doors in Utah last week, that wild horse advocates care more about fundraising than the animals, but of course there were no advocates there to defend themselves because they were not invited to attend. Then the coward had the gall to joke that some members of Congress believe that every horse is Seabiscuit. Of course, the French think every horse should be Sea-Brisket.. It is also no laughing matter that Bishop, U.S. Rep Chris Stewart, R-Utah; and Aurelia Skipwith, deputy assistant U.S. Interior Secretary for fish and wildlife and national parks, were allowed to get away with advancing their agenda of slaughtering wild horses so federally subsidized cattle and sheep ranchers can steal more land from wild horses and other wildlife.. Instead of pro-slaughter efforts in Congress regarding wild horses, we need legislation that would allow wild ...

Why not?. Unless some self-appointed wild horse lovers step in and manage to quash the idea, the Bureau of Land Management is seriously considering still another method for reducing the wild horse and burro population on the open range and in pens.. The idea was floated in a report to Congress this past April. Instead of charging people $125 a head to adopt a wild horse or burro, pay people $1,000 a head to adopt and care for the feral animals instead of letting them starve on overgrazed range or languish in pens.. The report predicted, If the incentive proves to increase adoptions beyond the planned 5,000, the BLM could decrease the use of permanent sterilization and increase removals to match adoption/sale totals. While this incentive would increase costs in the initial years, it will quickly pay for itself by lowering off-range holding expenditures, adding that the program could reduce the 83,000 horses and burros on the open range to the goal of 27,000 by 2030.. The idea was endorsed in ...
Head-body length: 7 feet. Shoulder height: 4 feet. Tail length: 3 feet (Lowry Park Zoo). Przewalskis wild horse is stocky with short legs and a short neck, looking very pony-like (Burton 1962).

In June, veterinarians at the Prague Zoo administered a check-up to Cassovia, a 550-pound female Przewalskis horse, before moving her to a new home on the Asian steppe. Natives of Mongolia, China, Russia and Eastern Europe, Przewalskis (pronounced shah-val-ski) horses are the last wild horses left on Earth. Unlike the feral horse population of North America, the species has no domestic ancestors. Hunters and environmental pressures all but wiped out the animals by the 1970s, but about 1,500 remain in captivity.
Sterilization experiments are cruel and with no merit.

Arabian horses are believed to be one of the oldest and most influential horse breeds in the world. Blood is the main tissue involved in maintaining body homeostasis, and it is considered a marker of the processes taking place in the other tissues. Thus, the aim of our study was to identify the genetic basis of changes occurring in the blood of Arabian horses subjected to a training regimen and to compare the global gene expression profiles between different training periods (T1: after a slow canter phase that is considered a conditioning phase, T2: after an intense gallop phase, and T3: at the end of the racing season) and between trained and untrained horses (T0). RNA sequencing was performed on 37 samples with a 75-bp single-end run on a HiScanSQ platform (Illumina), and differentially expressed genes (DEGs) were identified based on DESeq2 (v1.11.25) software. An increase in the number of DEGs between subsequent training periods was observed, and the highest amount of DEGs (440) was detected between

Serum specimens from 12 sick and 20 normal horses were examined for levels of different classes of immunoglobulin (Ig) by a single radial immunodiffusion. The level of IgA in the sera of sick horses was about 50% lower than in the sera of normal horses. By contrast, the level of serum IgG was higher in sick than in normal horses. Phytohemagglutinin (PHA) responsiveness of blood lymphocytes showed transient suppression during the stage of severe diarrhea. The regaining of PHA responsiveness of lymphocytes was observed simultaneously with the recovery process. However, the responsiveness of lymphocytes in recovered horses was still markedly lower than in normal horses. Allergic reactions in sick and normal horses were studied by observing dermal response to the injections of saline extracts from some of the horse feeds.

BACKGROUND: The catalog of genetic variants in the horse genome originates from a few select animals, the majority originating from the Thoroughbred mare used for the equine genome sequencing project. The purpose of this study was to identify genetic variants, including single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), insertion/deletion polymorphisms (INDELs), and copy number variants (CNVs) in the genome of an individual Quarter Horse mare sequenced by next-generation sequencing. RESULTS: Using massively parallel paired-end sequencing, we generated 59.6 Gb of DNA sequence from a Quarter Horse mare resulting in an average of 24.7X sequence coverage. Reads were mapped to approximately 97% of the reference Thoroughbred genome. Unmapped reads were de novo assembled resulting in 19.1 Mb of new genomic sequence in the horse. Using a stringent filtering method, we identified 3.1 million SNPs, 193 thousand INDELs, and 282 CNVs. Genetic variants were annotated to determine their impact on gene structure and ...

The first Thoroughbred horse in the American Colonies was Bulle Rock, imported in 1730.[40][41] Maryland and Virginia were the centers of Colonial Thoroughbred breeding, along with South Carolina and New York. During the American Revolution importations of horses from England practically stopped but were restarted after the signing of a peace treaty. Two important stallions were imported around the time of the Revolution; Messenger in 1788 and Diomed before that. Messenger left little impact on the American Thoroughbred, but is considered a foundation sire of the Standardbred breed. Diomed, who won the Derby Stakes in 1780, had a significant impact on American Thoroughbred breeding, mainly through his son Sir Archy.[42][43] John F. Wall, a racing historian, said that Sir Archy was the first outstanding stallion we can claim as native American.[44] He was retired from the racetrack because of lack of opponents.[44]. After the American Revolution, the center of Thoroughbred breeding and racing ...

Investigating depression-like conditions in animals is methodologically challenging, but potentially important for welfare. Some riding horses display withdrawn states of inactivity and low responsiveness that resemble the reduced engagement with the environment shown by certain depressed patients. To assess whether these animals are experiencing a depression-like state, we investigated anhedonia - the loss of pleasure, a key symptom of human depression - in 20 withdrawn and non-withdrawn horses from the same stable. The time horses spent being withdrawn appeared unrelated to age or sex, but correlated with time devoted to stereotypic behaviour, a possible marker of lifetime stress. Comparison with data collected 5 years earlier also revealed that horses scored as withdrawn then remained significantly likely to display the behaviour. We measured sucrose intake, a classic measure of anhedonia never previously applied to horses. Flavoured sugar blocks, novel to these subjects, were mounted in each stall
It doesnt slow them down really but they cant grab pieces and throw them the way they would if you just had a bale ring on it. I had 5 horses on it last year and 4 this year and they are all very content to eat this way. They bicker more with each other when they are grazing in the summer then they do with the feeder out there. ( they have 15 acres available at that point) My horses are eating 2nd cutting timothy/clover and get no grain at all since eating is all they do in the winter. yes, my little paint mare gets chunky but works her butt off in the summer and starts out with a nice figure in the fall. No one has colicked doing this and I have fed them round bales free choice for the last 12 years. The bale buddy keeps the hay from blowing away in high winds, keeps it dry in the rain and I have always figured 5 days for 4 horses on the bale 24/7 in the winter. I love the ease of putting hay up and feeding it this way ...

Search and rescue horses are used for a variety of purposes. Horses are often chosen over vehicles in difficult terrain but also to allow uninhibited hearing as vehicle motors could drown out important sounds. Some search and rescue horses are specially trained not only as a means for transportation, but also as a valuable asset in these situations. Equines and their human partners train one-on-one to communicate what the other observes. By nature, horses are very attuned to their surroundings and are considered to have a greater range of sight, smell and hearing then their human companions. Equines are therefore trained to communicate their perspective of the world around them to their human partners that may have otherwise gone unnoticed.. One specialized search and rescue horse is the air-scent equine. Instead of scent dogs that tracks specific smells, air-scent equines are trained to indicate when they pick up scents of humans in the vicinity or on the wind. Unlike dogs, equines have a ...
Almost all horse injuries and illnesses (excluding sports injuries and mistreatment) are due to a small number of mistakes in the way horses are kept and treated. Here are the top 10 tips to avoiding these errors and protecting your horses health (in rough order of importance, beginning with the most important). 1. Start with a healthy horse Our number one tip is to make sure when getting a new horse that it is healthy to begin with. There are a lot of horses which are cheap, or even
Cerebellar abiotrophy (CA) is a rare but significant disease in Arabian horses caused by progressive death of the Purkinje cells resulting in cerebellar ataxia characterized by a typical head tremor, jerky head movements and lack of menace response. The specific role of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to support clinical diagnosis has been discussed. However, as yet MR imaging has only been described in one equine CA case. The role of MR morphometry in this regard is currently unknown. Due to the hereditary nature of the disease, genetic testing can support the diagnosis of CA. Therefore, the objective of this study was to perform MR morphometric analysis and genetic testing in four CA-affected Arabian horses and one German Riding Pony with purebred Arabian bloodlines in the third generation. CA was diagnosed pathohistologically in the five affected horses (2 months - 3 years) supported by clinical signs, necropsy, and genetic testing which confirmed the TOE1:g.2171G|A SNP genotype A/A in all CA
The history of horse breeding goes back millennia. Though the precise date is in dispute, humans could have domesticated the horse as far back as approximately 4500 BCE. However, evidence of planned breeding has a more blurry history. It is well known, for example, that the Romans did breed horses and valued them in their armies, but little is known regarding their breeding and husbandry practices: all that remains are statues and artwork. Mankind has plenty of equestrian statues of Roman emperors, horses are mentioned in the Odyssey by Homer, and hieroglyphics and paintings left behind by Egyptians tell stories of pharaohs hunting elephants from chariots. Nearly nothing is known of what became of the horses they bred for hippodromes, for warfare, or even for farming. One of the earliest people known to document the breedings of their horses were the Bedouin of the Middle East, the breeders of the Arabian horse. While it is difficult to determine how far back the Bedouin passed on pedigree ...
WASHINGTON (Oct. 28, 2016) - In a report from the Office of Inspector General for the Department of the Interior, the OIG found the Bureau of Land Managements wild horse and burro program does not maximize efficiencies and is not compliant with federal regulation. Public Lands Council President and Utah rancher, Dave Eliason, said this report confirms what public lands ranchers have long known to be true.. The fact is that wild horse and burro populations are growing at unsustainable rates on our nations public lands, said Eliason. The unchecked growth of these populations threatens the productivity of public grasslands and the health and welfare of the wild horse and burro populations. The BLMs solution has been to move more of these wild horses and burros off the range and into short-term holding facilities, some horses being held in those facilities for an average of five years, rather than transporting horses to the under-utilized long-term holding facilities. The OIG report points out ...

It has been estimated that exposure to environmental chemical carcinogens may contribute significantly to the causation of a sizable fraction, perhaps a majority, of human cancers. Human carcinogens act through a variety of genotoxic and non-genotoxic mechanisms. Genotoxic carcinogens can attack biological macromolecules such as DNA and RNA either directly or indirectly through metabolism, resulting in the formation of adducts with these macromolecules. If DNA adducts escape cellular repair mechanisms and persist, they may lead to miscoding, resulting in permanent mutations. Non-genotoxic carcinogens act by the mechanisms such as induction of inflammation, immunosuppression, formation of reactive oxygen species, activation of receptors, and epigenetic silencing. Together, these genotoxic and non-genotoxic mechanisms can alter signal-transduction pathways that finally result in hypermutability, genomic instability, loss of proliferation control, and resistance to apoptosis - some of the ...
The pentose phosphate pathway is a process of glucose turnover that produces NADPH as reducing equivalents and pentoses as essential parts of nucleotides. There are two different phases in the pathway. One is irreversible oxidative phase in which glucose-6P is converted to ribulose-5P by oxidative decarboxylation, and NADPH is generated [MD:M00006]. The other is reversible non-oxidative phase in which phosphorylated sugars are interconverted to generate xylulose-5P, ribulose-5P, and ribose-5P [MD:M00007]. Phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate (PRPP) formed from ribose-5P [MD:M00005] is an activated compound used in the biosynthesis of histidine and purine/pyrimidine nucleotides. This pathway map also shows the Entner-Doudoroff pathway where 6-P-gluconate is dehydrated and then cleaved into pyruvate and glyceraldehyde-3P [MD:M00008 ...

Infection with A. phagocytophilumis a tick-borne infectious disease spread by Ixodes species ticks. This infection often occurs from spring through fall due to increased tick activity during this time of year. Illness usually occurs shortly after the tick bite. Affected horses may suddenly show signs such as appetite loss, fever, lethargy (tiredness), reluctance to move, and fluid accumulation on the lower limbs, which indent when pressed with a finger. Affected horses often develop a fever of 103°F or higher (normal temperature range for adult horses: 99°F to 101.5°F). If your horse suddenly develops these signs, it is important to contact your veterinarian. Usually, only one horse on a property is infected with A. phagocytophilum; however, multiple horses on one property are occasionally affected.. Read More ...
[email protected], [email protected], [email protected] Dear Sirs,. The public is outraged that the small Water Canyon herd is being harassed and ruined for an experiment with GonaCon™-paid for with tax dollars. American wild horses are an indigenous species aka returned-native as well as being a national treasure. The public loves them.. Protections given to Americas free roaming wild horses and burros-according to the law-must be enforced.. The federally protected Water Canyon herd was underpopulated-with less than 60 wild horses of various ages on the herd management area (HMA). The herd is located on the western side of the vast Antelope Complex in northeastern Nevada, north of Ely.. This herd is already threatened with low genetic viability because the population is so small. American wild horses are not overpopulated on public land and are not pests. They should never be experimented on with an EPA restricted-use pesticide, or anything else.. PZP, another EPA restricted-use pesticide, ...

AU - Rotstein, David S.. AU - Aitken-Palmer, Copper. PY - 2016/6/1. Y1 - 2016/6/1. N2 - Acute phase proteins are sensitive markers of inflammation, which are highly conserved across taxa. Although the utility of these proteins are becoming well defined in human and domestic animal medical fields, their role in nondomestic species remains unclear. In this communication, a 20-yr-old Przewalskis horse was presented for unresolving aspiration pneumonia, which cultured a unique Actinomyces-like bacteria. Despite waxing and waning clinical signs and minimal changes on baseline hematologic analysis, protein electrophoresis, serum amyloid A, and surfactant protein D serum concentrations showed changes that more accurately reflected the clinical severity of this case..

While the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) recognizes the therapeutic benefits of the drug furosemide, commonly known as Lasix, to help mitigate the occurrence of exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH) in racehorses, the AQHA executive committee recently asked the AQHA Animal Welfare Commission to review the proposed prohibition of Lasix for show horses, set to be effective as of Jan. 1, 2018.. Balancing the use of therapeutic medication for the welfare of the horse in different types of competition, such as racing and showing, while minimizing or eliminating performance-enhancing properties of medication compounds has been a challenge in the equine industry. Lasix has been endorsed by several equine groups and the American Association of Equine Practitioners to lessen the occurrence of EIPH in racehorses. Consistent with such groups, the AQHA opposed the latest version of the newly introduced Horseracing Integrity Act of 2017, which would eliminate all race-day medications, ...
Author Summary We utilized the previously generated horse genome sequence and a large SNP database to design an ∼54,000 SNP assay for use in the domestic horse and related species. The utility of this SNP array was demonstrated through genome-wide linkage disequilibrium, inbreeding and genetic distance measurements within breeds, as well as multidimensional scaling and parsimony analysis. Association mapping confirmed a large conserved segment containing the chestnut coat color locus in domestic horses. We also assess the utility of the SNP array in related species, including the Przewalskis Horse, zebras, asses, tapirs, and rhinoceros. This SNP genotyping tool will facilitate many genetics applications in equids, including identification of genes for health and performance traits, and compelling studies of the origins of the domestic horse, diversity within breeds, and evolutionary relationships among related species.

A variant in the procollagen-lysine, 2-oxoglutarate 5-dioxygenase1 gene (PLOD1 c.2032G,A) was shown to cause Warmblood fragile foal syndrome type 1 (WFFS), a fatal recessive defect of the connective tissue. Screening of multiple horse breeds identified the presence of the WFFS allele in the Thoroughbred. PLOD1 is involved in cross-linking of collagen fibrils and thus could potentially increase the risk of catastrophic breakdown. Objectives: Estimate the frequency ...
The BLM says the range can support 50 horses. The herd twice since 2006 has been rounded up and held in the agencys Boise Wild Horse Corrals after wildfires destroyed rangeland forage.. The agency has said the most recent capture involved 195 horses following a wildfire in August 2010. The BLM in September 2011 released 30 of those horses 13 females and 17 males back onto the range. The agency said a count this spring found the herd had nearly tripled with 71 adults and 12 foals.. Wild horses far exceed U.S. government population goals, and officials say the free-roaming horses that number about 73,000 can face starvation. Captured horses are offered for adoption, but 46,000 are being held at government corrals and pastures costing taxpayers $50 million annually.. Wild horse advocate groups have questioned federal population goals for wild horses as being on the low side.. Suzanne Roy, executive director of American Wild Horse Campaign, said that sterilizing the Idaho herd could have led to the ...

But not all is well. As the colt cools down in the test barn following his win, Smith hears Gettinup Morning cough. He approaches and wipes one of the horses nostrils, and the rag comes away stained with blood - Gettinup Morning bled in his first race.. In North America, the majority of thoroughbred racehorses race on the diuretic Lasix (Salix), an increasingly controversial drug used to reduce exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH), a condition in which small blood vessels break as a result of exertion. Horses who exhibit visible bleeding after training or racing are known as bleeders, and Lasix has been shown to prevent or reduce EIPH in susceptible racehorses. However, the drug is banned in almost all other countries than the US and Canada, on the rationale that Lasix disguises the very condition it treats, weakening the breed when horses are sent to stud. In the US, Lasix is used prophylactically; it is estimated that more than 95% of American thoroughbreds race on the drug, often ...

LIGHT AND BEHAVIOURAL NEEDS:. Dark boxes where horses have little visual contact with other horses are likely to lead to behavioural problems. Box-weaving, wind-sucking and other vices often begin out of boredom. While one extreme approach, advocated by some, involves housing horses in groups, simple approaches such as providing adequate provisions for light and anti-weaving bars so that horses can put their heads out over the stable door can be beneficial.. Horses have evolved as gregarious and free ranging animals. They spend approximately 60% of their time grazing and continually move over their home range living together in close knit herds. Stables horses are restricted to one or two hours exercise per day, have restricted social interaction and fed concentrated rations which are quickly consumed. In these conditions stables horses can develop STEREOTYPIES, characterised by bouts of frequently repeated, invariant and apparently purposeless activities. Examples of these include licking, crib ...

Small-scale components of the equine hoof wall were tested to determine their mechanical roles in the morphological hierarchy. Macroscale tensile tests conducted on samples of the inner wall tubules and intertubular material showed a sixfold difference in mean initial stiffnesses (0.47 and 0.08 GPa, respectively), indicating that the inner wall tubules stiffen the wall along its longitudinal axis. The similarity in material properties of tubule and intertubular samples from the mid-wall suggests that tubules in this region offer only minor reinforcement along the longitudinal axis.Microscale tests conducted on rows of keratin strands from the inner wall tubules and intertubular material, and on intertubular keratin strands of the mid-wall, produced estimates of the stiffnesses of the hydrated matrix (0.03 GPa) and intermediate filament (IF; 3-4 GPa) components of the nanoscale (α -keratin) composite. The results from these tests also suggest that the properties of the keratin composite vary ...

Even so, Dr. Hess said, outright nutrient deficiencies in recreational horses are rare if pastures or hay are of average quality. Whats more common are problems that arise when too much food is given, or if rich food, such as lush pasture when it first greens up in the spring, is offered all at once. Horses that have eaten too much fresh grass in one go can develop a digestion-related inflammatory condition known as founder (laminitis), which causes the all-important connective tissue in the hooves to soften and weaken. Foundered horses can be rehabilitated, but the condition can be fatal when the horse becomes too lame to stand.. ​We know that 56% of the founder cases are related to dietary issues, and about 48% are related to feeding on lush pasture that is rich in sugars,​​ Dr. Hess said.. Dr. Hess said knowing breed differences and differences among individual horses are critically important. Horses known as easy keepers, in other words those that thrive on less and poorer feed ...

An 8-month-old female thoroughbred foal was presented showing signs of colic. The foal was anxious,exhibiting signs of abdominal pain and distention. The foal had tachycardia (120 beats/min), tachypnea (40breaths/min). Blood samples obtained for haematologic and serum biochemistry analysis that showed a PCVof 30% and a TPP of 70 g/L. The peritoneal fluid analysis revealed a clear fluid with mild elevation of totalprotein. The early treatment involved intravenous administration of a balanced electrolyte solution andanalgesics. The signs of abdominal pain were progressive and nonresponsive to treatments. Therefore,exploratory laparatomy was elected. During the exploratory laparatomy a faecalith impaction of small colonwas detected. The mass was manipulated, macerated and milked toward the rectum and anus. It was finallyremoved via the anus without enterotomy incision. Midline incision and skin incision were sutured routinely.The foal made an uneventful recovery
The Icelandic horse comes from the horses the Vikings brought with them when they settled in Iceland for more than eleven hundred years ago. There has been imported horses to Iceland since Viking times. Therefore we have in this unique horse breed Norden own, original whole blood in the form of the strong, small töltere. Nature which horses have lived in for centuries, has made them healthy and hardy, and Icelanders demands for a versatile transportdyr in the difficult terrain has created an unusually reliable, strong and comfortable riding horse, incredibly sure-footed and with plenty of temperament and run will. It is the horses gaits, which more than anything else the band the way for the success of the Icelandic horse has been in recent years in most of Europe and North America. Besides the three basic gaits, all horse breeds are supposed to master the walk, trot and canter, the Icelandic horses facility for two additional gaits tölt and passports ...
