1. Plasma urea, creatinine, bilirubin, glucose, cholesterol and total serum proteins were determined in Danish landrace goats from five herds in early and late gestation, during lactation and in dry goats. The purpose was to determine if there are sustained alterations in the levels of these parameters due to pregnancy and lactation and whether the changes are dependent on age, parity and environment. 2. Urea, creatinine and bilirubin were higher in young non-pregnant goats than in others. Urea decreased in goats at early and mid-lactation directly proportional to parity so that the higher the parity the more the decrease. 3. Creatinine was higher in young and adult non-pregnant goats than in others. There was an increase in late lactation that was greater in goats of higher parity than in others. 4. Bilirubin was higher in the mid-lactation stage, much more in goats of higher parity than in others. 5. Glucose concentration was lower in pregnant than in lactating goats and increased during lactation. The decrease during pregnancy was greater in higher parity goats than in others. 6. Plasma cholesterol and total serum proteins increased during lactation directly proportional to parity. 7. There were significant differences in bi...Continue Reading

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.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.
