Abstract

The author treated guinea pigs with a combination of three pesticides: First group -- with cyneb in a dose of 12,5 mg/kg of body weight (threshold value) +/- sevine in a dose of Ip 5 mg/kg (twice threshold value) +/- tribufon in a dose of 5.0 mg/kg (threshold value); second group -- cyneb 125 mg/kg (ten times of threshold value) +/- sevine 1.5 mg/kg (twice the threshold value) +/- tribufon 5.0 mg/kg (threshold value). Two groups of animals were used as controls: first group-- treated with 2,0 mg/kg of cyclophosphamide and second group -- with 3% of starch emulsion, with which other substances were given. The indicated substances were administered in the animals by a probe (a catheter) daily, in the morning before feeding, for a period of six months. Then sensibilization was made by ovalbumin in a solution of 10 gm% according the scheme: first injection of 2 ml of ovalbumin -- 1 ml subcutaneously in the inguinal region and 1 ml intraperitonealy. A challenging dose of 2 ml was administered inraperitonealy after 20 days and the reaction of the experimental animals was examined for a period of 90 minutes after the administration of the challenging dose. There was no difference in the reaction of the guinea pigs, treated with a comb...Continue Reading

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Pontocerebellar Hypoplasia

Pontocerebellar hypoplasias are a group of neurodegenerative autosomal recessive disorders with prenatal onset, atrophy or hypoplasia of the cerebellum, hypoplasia of the ventral pons, microcephaly, variable neocortical atrophy and severe mental and motor impairments. Here is the latest research on pontocerebellar hypoplasia.

Cell Atlas Along the Gut-Brain Axis

Profiling cells along the gut-brain axis at the single cell level will provide unique information for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and insights into how changes in the map underlie health and disease of the GI system and its crosstalk with the brain.
