A survey of serum and dietary carotenoids in captive wild animals. (1/1999)

Accumulation of carotenoids varies greatly among animal species and is not fully characterized. Circulating carotenoid concentration data in captive wild animals are limited and may be useful for their management. Serum carotenoid concentrations and dietary intakes were surveyed and the extent of accumulation categorized for 76 species of captive wild animals at Brookfield Zoo. Blood samples were obtained opportunistically from 275 individual animals immobilized for a variety of reasons; serum was analyzed for alpha- and beta-carotene, lutein + zeaxanthin, lycopene, beta-cryptoxanthin and canthaxanthin. Total carotenoid content of diets was calculated from tables and chemical analyses of commonly consumed dietary components. Diets were categorized as low, moderate or high in carotenoid content as were total serum carotenoid concentrations. Animals were classified as unknown, high, moderate or low (non-) accumulators of dietary cartenoids. Nonaccumulators had total serum carotenoid concentrations of 0-101 nmol/L, whereas accumulators had concentrations that ranged widely, from 225 to 35,351 nmol/L. Primates were uniquely distinguished by the widest range of type and concentration of carotenoids in their sera. Most were classified as high to moderate accumulators. Felids had high accumulation of beta-carotene regardless of dietary intake, whereas a wide range of exotic birds accumulated only the xanthophylls, lutein + zeaxanthin, canthaxanthin or cryptoxanthin. The exotic ungulates, with the exception of the bovids, had negligible or nondetectable carotenoid serum concentrations despite moderate intakes. Bovids accumulated only beta-carotene despite moderately high lutein + zeaxanthin intakes. Wild captive species demonstrated a wide variety of carotenoid accumulation patterns, which could be exploited to answer remaining questions concerning carotenoid metabolism and function.  (+info)

The prevalence of Balantidium coli infection in fifty-six mammalian species. (2/1999)

A total of 375 fecal samples of 56 mammalian species belonging to 17 families of 4 orders were examined for the detection of Balantidium coli from December 1994 to August 1995. As a result, B. coli was found from 6 species belonging to 4 families of 2 orders (Primates and Artiodactyla) of host animals examined. White-handed gibbon (Hylobates lar), squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciurea) and Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata) were new hosts for B. coli. All the wild boar (Sus scrofa) and chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes) examined were positive. The highest number of B. coli was obtained from a chimpanzee (1,230/g feces). No B. coli was detected from the animals of orders Rodentia and Carnivora including dogs and cats. The rarity of B. coli infection in breeding animals in Japan. suggests that there is no serious problem in controlling infections.  (+info)

Optimality of position commands to horizontal eye muscles: A test of the minimum-norm rule. (3/1999)

Six muscles control the position of the eye, which has three degrees of freedom. Daunicht proposed an optimization rule for solving this redundancy problem, whereby small changes in eye position are maintained by the minimum possible change in motor commands to the eye (the minimum-norm rule). The present study sought to test this proposal for the simplified one-dimensional case of small changes in conjugate eye position in the horizontal plane. Assuming such changes involve only the horizontal recti, Daunicht's hypothesis predicts reciprocal innervation with the size of the change in command matched to the strength of the recipient muscle at every starting position of the eye. If the motor command to a muscle is interpreted as the summed firing rate of its oculomotor neuron (OMN) pool, the minimum-norm prediction can be tested by comparing OMN firing rates with forces in the horizontal recti. The comparison showed 1) for the OMN firing rates given by Van Gisbergen and Van Opstal and the muscle forces given by Robinson, there was good agreement between the minimum-norm prediction and experimental observation over about a +/-30 degrees range of eye positions. This fit was robust with respect to variations in muscle stiffness and in methods of calculating muscle innervation. 2) Other data sets gave different estimates for the range of eye-positions within which the minimum-norm prediction held. The main sources of variation appeared to be disagreement about the proportion of OMNs with very low firing-rate thresholds (i.e., less than approximately 35 degrees in the OFF direction) and uncertainty about eye-muscle behavior for extreme (>30 degrees ) positions of the eye. 3) For all data sets, the range of eye positions over which the minimum-norm rule applied was determined by the pattern of motor-unit recruitment inferred for those data. It corresponded to the range of eye positions over which the size principle of recruitment was obeyed by both agonist and antagonist muscles. It is argued that the current best estimate of the oculomotor range over which minimum-norm control could be used for conjugate horizontal eye position is approximately +/-30 degrees. The uncertainty associated with this estimate would be reduced by obtaining unbiased samples of OMN firing rates. Minimum-norm control may result from reduction of the image movement produced by noise in OMN firing rates.  (+info)

Retinotopic mapping of lateral geniculate nucleus in humans using functional magnetic resonance imaging. (4/1999)

Subcortical nuclei in the thalamus, which play an important role in many functions of the human brain, provide challenging targets for functional mapping with neuroimaging techniques because of their small sizes and deep locations. In this study, we explore the capability of high-resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging at 4 Tesla for mapping the retinotopic organization in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN). Our results show that the hemifield visual stimulation only activates LGN in the contralateral hemisphere, and the lower-field and upper-field visual stimulations activate the superior and inferior portion of LGN, respectively. These results reveal a similar retinotopic organization between the human and nonhuman primate LGN and between LGN and the primary visual cortex. We conclude that high-resolution functional magnetic resonance imaging is capable of functional mapping of suborganizations in small nuclei together with cortical activation. This will have an impact for studying the thalamocortical networks in the human brain.  (+info)

Canine sexual dimorphism in Egyptian Eocene anthropoid primates: Catopithecus and Proteopithecus. (5/1999)

Two very small late Eocene anthropoid primates, Catopithecus browni and Proteopithecus sylviae, from Fayum, Egypt show evidence of substantial sexual dimorphism in canine teeth. The degree of dimorphism suggests that these early anthropoids lived in social groups with a polygynous mating system and intense male-male competition. Catopithecus and Proteopithecus are smaller in estimated body size than any living primates showing canine dimorphism. The origin of canine dimorphism and polygyny in anthropoids was not associated with the evolution of large body size.  (+info)

Xenotransplantation. (6/1999)

As transplantation waiting lists lengthen because of the shortage of donor organs, the death rates of patients continue to rise. Xenotransplantation offers the potential to solve the problem of organ shortage br providing an unlimited supply of healthy donor organs. However, there are several barriers to xenotransplantation, including graft rejection, potential xenozoonosis, physiologic incompatibilities and ethical concerns. Experimental xenotransplantation studies continue in several areas, ranging from tissue to whole- organ grafting. Clinical studies continue in the area of tissue xenotransplantation. Trials with extracorporeal xenografts in an acute setting to support fulminant organ failure are likely to begin in the near future. The reintroduction of whole-organ xenotransplantation must be based on sound scientific analysis with broad societal input so as to offer the maximal benefit to transplant recipients and their families.  (+info)

High polymorphism at the human melanocortin 1 receptor locus. (7/1999)

Variation in human skin/hair pigmentation is due to varied amounts of eumelanin (brown/black melanins) and phaeomelanin (red/yellow melanins) produced by the melanocytes. The melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) is a regulator of eu- and phaeomelanin production in the melanocytes, and MC1R mutations causing coat color changes are known in many mammals. We have sequenced the MC1R gene in 121 individuals sampled from world populations with an emphasis on Asian populations. We found variation at five nonsynonymous sites (resulting in the variants Arg67Gln, Asp84Glu, Val92Met, Arg151Cys, and Arg163Gln), but at only one synonymous site (A942G). Interestingly, the human consensus protein sequence is observed in all 25 African individuals studied, but at lower frequencies in the other populations examined, especially in East and Southeast Asians. The Arg163Gln variant is absent in the Africans studied, almost absent in Europeans, and at a low frequency (7%) in Indians, but is at an exceptionally high frequency (70%) in East and Southeast Asians. The MC1R gene in common and pygmy chimpanzees, gorilla, orangutan, and baboon was sequenced to study the evolution of MC1R. The ancestral human MC1R sequence is identical to the human consensus protein sequence, while MC1R varies considerably among higher primates. A comparison of the rates of substitution in genes in the melanocortin receptor family indicates that MC1R has evolved the fastest. In addition, the nucleotide diversity at the MC1R locus is shown to be several times higher than the average nucleotide diversity in human populations, possibly due to diversifying selection.  (+info)

Branching out in locomotion: the mechanics of perch use in birds and primates. (8/1999)

Many animals use thin perches, such as the branches of trees, as locomotory substrates. In this paper, I have reviewed the literature concerned with measurements of locomotory forces made by birds and primates on thin and flexible substrates. Through a knowledge of the locomotory forces exerted by animals when using different substrates, the mechanical cost of their use can be established. We are just beginning to learn about the magnitude and patterns of force production in various branch-using vertebrates, primarily as a result of the development of instrumented perches. Instrumented perches have been designed to measure the forces produced by birds and primates when leaping from rigid and flexible horizontal and flexible vertical perches, and also from instrumented handgrips during brachiation. The development of these techniques for birds and primates allows us to compare the way in which they use perches as locomotory substrates. In both birds and primates, the magnitudes of landing forces are smaller than those during take-off. Two explanations have been proposed; the difference is either a consequence of perch compliance or it is a strategic decision to be cautious of 'new' perches. Leaps from flexible perches may be somewhat inefficient because considerable energy is dissipated in bending the perch, and this energy may remain unrecovered when the animal leaves contact with the perch.  (+info)

6. Yellow fever: A viral infection that is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected mosquito, and can cause fever, jaundice, and hemorrhagic symptoms.
7. Kyasanur Forest disease: A viral infection that is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected tick, and can cause fever, headache, and hemorrhagic symptoms.
8. Monkeypox: A viral infection that is similar to smallpox and is transmitted to humans through contact with infected animals or contaminated surfaces.
9. Meningitis: An inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord, which can be caused by a range of bacterial and viral infections.
10. Encephalitis: An inflammation of the brain, which can be caused by a range of viral and bacterial infections.

It is important to note that many of these diseases are rare in humans and may not be commonly encountered in everyday practice. However, it is important for healthcare providers to be aware of these diseases and their potential transmission routes in order to provide appropriate care and prevention measures for patients.

1. Simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV): A retrovirus that affects nonhuman primates and is similar to HIV in humans. SIV can be transmitted through bites, sexual contact, or mother-to-child transmission during pregnancy or childbirth.
2. Ebola virus: A highly contagious and deadly viral disease that affects primates and humans. Ebola is transmitted through contact with infected bodily fluids, such as blood, sweat, and saliva.
3. Marburg virus: Another deadly viral disease that affects primates and humans, similar to Ebola. Marburg is also transmitted through contact with infected bodily fluids.
4. Tuberculosis: A bacterial infection that affects the lungs and other organs, and can be transmitted to humans from infected nonhuman primates.
5. Malaria: A parasitic infection that affects humans and many species of nonhuman primates, including apes. Plasmodium parasites are transmitted through the bite of infected mosquitoes.
6. Herpes B virus: A viral infection that can cause a range of diseases in nonhuman primates, including respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms.
7. Yaws: A bacterial infection that affects humans and nonhuman primates, causing skin lesions and joint pain.
8. Leishmaniasis: A parasitic infection that affects humans and many species of nonhuman primates, including apes. Leishmaniasis is caused by a protozoan parasite transmitted through the bite of infected sandflies.
9. Trypanosomiasis: A parasitic infection also known as sleeping sickness, which affects humans and many species of nonhuman primates, including apes. Trypanosomiasis is caused by a protozoan parasite transmitted through the bite of infected tsetse flies.
10. Tuberculosis: A bacterial infection that affects humans and many species of nonhuman primates, including apes. Mycobacterium tuberculosis is transmitted through respiratory droplets or contact with infected individuals.

1) They share similarities with humans: Many animal species share similar biological and physiological characteristics with humans, making them useful for studying human diseases. For example, mice and rats are often used to study diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer because they have similar metabolic and cardiovascular systems to humans.

2) They can be genetically manipulated: Animal disease models can be genetically engineered to develop specific diseases or to model human genetic disorders. This allows researchers to study the progression of the disease and test potential treatments in a controlled environment.

3) They can be used to test drugs and therapies: Before new drugs or therapies are tested in humans, they are often first tested in animal models of disease. This allows researchers to assess the safety and efficacy of the treatment before moving on to human clinical trials.

4) They can provide insights into disease mechanisms: Studying disease models in animals can provide valuable insights into the underlying mechanisms of a particular disease. This information can then be used to develop new treatments or improve existing ones.

5) Reduces the need for human testing: Using animal disease models reduces the need for human testing, which can be time-consuming, expensive, and ethically challenging. However, it is important to note that animal models are not perfect substitutes for human subjects, and results obtained from animal studies may not always translate to humans.

6) They can be used to study infectious diseases: Animal disease models can be used to study infectious diseases such as HIV, TB, and malaria. These models allow researchers to understand how the disease is transmitted, how it progresses, and how it responds to treatment.

7) They can be used to study complex diseases: Animal disease models can be used to study complex diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. These models allow researchers to understand the underlying mechanisms of the disease and test potential treatments.

8) They are cost-effective: Animal disease models are often less expensive than human clinical trials, making them a cost-effective way to conduct research.

9) They can be used to study drug delivery: Animal disease models can be used to study drug delivery and pharmacokinetics, which is important for developing new drugs and drug delivery systems.

10) They can be used to study aging: Animal disease models can be used to study the aging process and age-related diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. This allows researchers to understand how aging contributes to disease and develop potential treatments.

Symptoms of Ebola hemorrhagic fever typically begin within 2 to 21 days after exposure and can include:

* Fever
* Headache
* Muscle pain
* Fatigue
* Diarrhea
* Vomiting
* Abdominal pain
* Rash
* Bleeding, including nosebleeds, gum bleeding, and internal bleeding

In severe cases, Ebola hemorrhagic fever can lead to:

* Organ failure
* Septic shock
* Hypovolemia (low blood volume)
* Coagulopathy (abnormal blood clotting)

Ebola hemorrhagic fever is diagnosed through a combination of physical examination, laboratory tests, and medical imaging. Treatment is primarily focused on supporting the body's vital functions and managing symptoms, and can include:

* Fluid replacement and hydration therapy
* Oxygen therapy
* Pain management
* Restoration of blood clotting factors

There is no specific cure for Ebola hemorrhagic fever, and the disease has a high mortality rate, with rates ranging from 25% to 90% in past outbreaks. However, with early diagnosis and appropriate treatment, survival rates can improve.

Prevention is key to controlling outbreaks of Ebola hemorrhagic fever, and measures include:

* Implementing infection control practices, such as wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) and proper cleaning and disinfection
* Avoiding contact with infected individuals and animals
* Screening for symptoms before allowing individuals to travel
* Implementing quarantine and isolation measures for infected individuals

There are also several experimental treatments and vaccines being developed to prevent and treat Ebola hemorrhagic fever, including:

* ZMapp, a cocktail of monoclonal antibodies that have been shown to be effective in treating the disease
* Brincidofovir, an antiviral drug that has shown promise in treating Ebola in non-human primates
* VSV-EBOV, a vaccine that has shown protection against Ebola in non-human primates and is currently being tested in humans.

Overall, while there is no specific cure for Ebola hemorrhagic fever, early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can improve survival rates, and prevention measures are critical to controlling outbreaks of the disease.

SAIDS was first identified in the 1980s in monkeys that were being used in research laboratories, and it has since been studied extensively as a model for HIV/AIDS research. Like HIV/AIDS, SAIDS is caused by the transmission of a virus from one animal to another through contact with infected bodily fluids, such as blood or semen.

The symptoms of SAIDS are similar to those of HIV/AIDS and include fever, fatigue, weight loss, and opportunistic infections. As the disease progresses, animals may also experience neurological symptoms, such as seizures and difficulty coordinating movements.

There is currently no cure for SAIDS, and treatment is focused on managing the symptoms and preventing complications. Research into the disease has led to a greater understanding of the immunopathogenesis of HIV/AIDS and has contributed to the development of new therapies for the disease.

SAIDS is important in medical research because it provides a valuable model for studying the immunopathogenesis of HIV/AIDS and for testing new therapies and vaccines. It also serves as a reminder of the importance of strict safety protocols when working with infectious agents, particularly in laboratory settings.

MPTP (1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine) poisoning is a type of toxicity that occurs when the brain is exposed to high levels of this substance. MPTP is a synthetic compound that was originally developed as a drug for treating Parkinson's disease, but it was found to be too toxic for human use.

MPTP poisoning can cause severe and irreversible damage to the brain's dopamine-producing neurons, leading to a condition called parkinsonism. Symptoms of MPTP poisoning include muscle rigidity, tremors, bradykinesia (slowness of movement), and changes in mood and cognitive function.

The diagnosis of MPTP poisoning is based on a combination of clinical findings and laboratory tests, including blood and urine analysis for the presence of MPTP or its metabolites. Treatment of MPTP poisoning typically involves supportive care, such as management of symptoms and prevention of complications, as well as medications to reduce dopamine levels in the brain.

MPTP poisoning can occur through intentional exposure (e.g., suicide attempt) or accidental exposure (e.g., ingestion of contaminated food or water). It is important for healthcare providers to be aware of the risks and signs of MPTP poisoning, as prompt diagnosis and treatment can help prevent long-term neurological damage and improve outcomes for affected individuals.

"Theyre all godly people who basically believe the same thing." Minns is a former Episcopalian who was named a bishop in the Church of Nigeria in 2006, and said that before retirement he traveled there about six times annually. "My initial calling was to provide pastoral care and connection for the significant number of Nigerian Anglicans who were living in America." His ministry expanded beyond Nigerians as the leader of the Convocation of Anglicans in North America, which eventually became one of the founding entities of ACNA.
