Cytotypes And Morphometrics Of Two Phyllostomatid Bats, Micronycteris Hirsuta And Vampyressa Pusilla, Robert J. Baker, Hugh H. Genoways, William J. Bleier, Jerry W. Warner Dec 1973

Cytotypes And Morphometrics Of Two Phyllostomatid Bats, Micronycteris Hirsuta And Vampyressa Pusilla, Robert J. Baker, Hugh H. Genoways, William J. Bleier, Jerry W. Warner

Mammalogy Papers: University of Nebraska State Museum

As pointed out by Jackson (1971) and Patton (1972), the key to understanding mechanisms of chromosomal evolution lies in studies of chromosomal variation within populations that can hybridize. Hybrids between cytotypes contain the answer to problems of meiotic pairing and reduced fertility, as well as information concerning the nature of zones of contact. However, before detailed studies can be initiated, chromosomal races and hybrid zones must be located. Few chromosomal races have been described for bats (Baker, 1970a). Within the family Vespertilionidae, five species are known to have such races (Baker, 1970a) and races have been reported in two species ...

Fluometuron And 2,4,5-T Residues In Soil, Sediment, Runoff Water, And Percolation Water, Glenn Gray Davis Dec 1973

Fluometuron And 2,4,5-T Residues In Soil, Sediment, Runoff Water, And Percolation Water, Glenn Gray Davis

Doctoral Dissertations

The rates of disappearance of 1,1-dimethyl-3-(a, a, a-trifluoro-m-toly1) urea (fluometuron) and the propylene glycol butyl either esters and a triethylamine salt of (2, 4, 5-trichlorophenoxy) acetic acid (2, 4, 5-T) from the application site in field plots and lysimeters were determined. Residual herbicide concentrations were estimated for field plot soil, runoff water collected in the plots after rainfall, and permanently impounded drainage water from the plots. Bioassays, spectrophotometry, and gas-liquid chromatography were utilized to detect residual concentrations of the three compounds. Linear and multicurvilinear equations were developed from known concentrations of the herbicide for predictions of ...


Changes In Tenderness And Collagen Of Beef Semitendinosus Muscle Heated At Two Rates, Marjorie Porter Penfield Dec 1973

Changes In Tenderness And Collagen Of Beef Semitendinosus Muscle Heated At Two Rates, Marjorie Porter Penfield

Doctoral Dissertations

Tenderness, an important quality attribute of meat, is affected by many factors, including rate of heating. The purpose of this investigation was to study the changes occurring in beef semitendinosus muscle and intramuscular connective tissue heated at rates comparable to oven roasting at 93 and 149°C. The sequence of changes occurring during heating was followed by evaluating samples heated to four end points, 40, 50, 60, and 70°C. Cores of meat and isolated connective tissue samples in buffer were heated in a water bath "programmed" to produce the desired rate of heating.

As internal temperature increased Warner Bratzler ...


Ultrastructure Of Inclusion Bodies In The Transitional Epithelium Of Monkey Urinary Bladder, Alan B. Weckerling Dec 1973

Ultrastructure Of Inclusion Bodies In The Transitional Epithelium Of Monkey Urinary Bladder, Alan B. Weckerling

Theses & Dissertations

It has been noted that hematoxylin-eosin stained surface cells in the transitional epithelium of certain animals occasionally contain acidophilic inclusion bodies. These can be observed in monkey kidney pelvis, ureter, urinary bladder, and urethra. In one species of monkey, Macaca fascicularis, the inclusion bodies are quite prevalent and apparently are not related to any pathologic or experimental condition. They are highly refractile under the light microscope, a property which often indicates structures below the resolving power of the microscope. This study was designed to explore the composition and structure of these inclusion bodies. Procedures were selected to detect the presence ...

Efficacy Of Betaprone With Ultraviolet Irradiation On Hepatitis B Antigen In Human Plasma Pools (A Retrospective Study), Gerald A. Logrippo, Hajime Hayashi Dec 1973

Efficacy Of Betaprone With Ultraviolet Irradiation On Hepatitis B Antigen In Human Plasma Pools (A Retrospective Study), Gerald A. Logrippo, Hajime Hayashi

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

In a retrospective study, hepatitis B antigen (HB Ag) was found in 14 lots of human plasma pools (16-20 liters each) that had been treated by the combined Betaprone (BPL) with ultraviolet (UV) irradiation procedure. No evidence of clinical hepatitis was found during a six-month follow-up after 185.2 liters of HB Ag positive plasma were Infused into 257 patients. Since HB Ag positive blood products treated by BPL with UV produced no clinical hepatitis, it is evident that our treatment is efficacious against hepatitis virus agents.

Electrical Alternans In Cardiac Tamponade, Andreas P. Niarchos Dec 1973

Electrical Alternans In Cardiac Tamponade, Andreas P. Niarchos

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

Of nine patients with pericardial effusion due to various causes, four developed cardiac tamponade. Electrical alternans was present In all four, being total in three, and ventricular in one. From the diagnostic point of view, the alternans corresponded with the clinical diagnosis of cardiac tamponade and the radiological signs of a large pericardial effusion. The pericardial fluid was hemorrhagic in three patients and transudate (hydropericardium) in the fourth. In two patients alternans was present with heart rates below 100 per minute. Apart from the exact (1:1) type of electrical alternans, three new types are described; a 2:1, 3 ...


Surgical Treatment Of Liver Trauma: Technical Considerations And Case Reports, C. Grodsinsky, T. A. Fox Jr., B. E. Brush Dec 1973

Surgical Treatment Of Liver Trauma: Technical Considerations And Case Reports, C. Grodsinsky, T. A. Fox Jr., B. E. Brush

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

The incidence of abdominal trauma, and thus that of liver trauma, has been increasing in the past few years. Improvements in the understanding of the anatomy of the liver and improvements in diagnostic techniques have resulted in shorter and better operations with less delay between injury and surgery. Improvements in transportation to adequate hospital facilities and vigorous resuscitative measures have also contributed to lowering the mortality rate for this type of injury. Suggestions are made for the surgical management of liver injuries, together with illustrative case reports.

The Effectiveness Of Oxandrolone In Promoting Linear Growth In Growth Hormone Deficient Children, Charles B. Wolf, Raymond C. Mellinger, Lewis B. Morrow, M. Saeed-Uz Zafar Dec 1973

The Effectiveness Of Oxandrolone In Promoting Linear Growth In Growth Hormone Deficient Children, Charles B. Wolf, Raymond C. Mellinger, Lewis B. Morrow, M. Saeed-Uz Zafar

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

This two-year study consisted of a comparison of oxandrolone and growth hormone for the treatment of five children with documented growth hormone deficiency. Previously, androgens have been reported to be relatively ineffective in accelerating linear growth In growth hormone deficient children. Oxandrolone was administered for one year. Growth hormone was added in the second six months and then was given as a single agent in the third six months. Growth accelerated markedly in all patients. Only one child showed more rapid growth with the addition of growth hormone while two children actually grew more rapidly under the Influence of oxandrolone ...


Near Basal Blood Pressure: A Method Applicable To Clinical Practice, John R. Caldwell Dec 1973

Near Basal Blood Pressure: A Method Applicable To Clinical Practice, John R. Caldwell

Henry Ford Hospital Medical Journal

A method is described for determining near basal blood pressure (NBBP) measurements that is applicable to outpatient clinic or office use in daily practice. In our clinic, patients' mean casual pressure was significantly higher than the NBBP, the difference being 40 mm Hg systolic (p < .001) and 18 mm Hg diastolic (p < .001). In hospitalized patients the casual blood pressure was higher than the fourth to sixth day hospital average, and the hospital average was higher than NBBP. The difference between the last two was 15 mm Hg systolic (p <. 005) and 9 mm Hg diastolic (p < .005). In patients recording blood pressure readings at home the average weekly home-recorded blood pressure was not significantly different from NBBP during the same week, -1 mm Hg systolic (p > .80) and 4 mm Hg diastolic (p > .10). NBBP by this method offers a practical way to estimate the average daily blood pressure.

Tb65: The Commercial Use Of Puckerbrush Pulp, Andrew J. Chase, Fay Hyland, Harold E. Young Dec 1973

Tb65: The Commercial Use Of Puckerbrush Pulp, Andrew J. Chase, Fay Hyland, Harold E. Young

Technical Bulletins

This study investigates the potential of several local puckerbrush or weed trees and shrubs as sources of fiber for papermaking. Four different pulping processes were used (sulfate, magnesium bisulfite, neutral sulfite semichemical, and cold caustic) with six puckerbrush species (alder, gray birch, red maple, pin cherry, aspen, and willow). Mixtures of puckerbrush species, and commercial chip-puckerbrush species mixtures were pulped by the sulfate process with the objective of producing a pulp that would be suitable for fine-grade papers. The results produced a good grade of bleachable pulp with adequate physical characteristics for most fine paper grades. The other three pulping ...
