A method is described whereby open field behaviour of rats can be automatically registered using a TV camera, a video converter, an X-Y recorder and a papertape puncher. Use is made of the scanning properties of the TV camera to obtain the X and Y coordinates of the rat's position and to print this position on an X-Y recorder to obtain the...

Ten antisera containing antibodies directed against specificities controlled by the Ia1 locus of rhesus monkeys were tested for their ability to inhibit the MLC reaction. In cultures with responding cells from the serum producer, all sera with anti-Ia1, activity depressed the stimulatory capacity of cells carrying the Ia1 antigen in question. In...

A cross-over study was done with 19 male and 23 female volunteers living in a monastery and a convent, respectively. The effect of a fat fish (mackerel) diet on the blood serum lipid composition was studied. As the normal diet of these volunteers was of the lacto-ovo-vegetarian type, a control diet in which the fish was replaced by full-fat...

The bisquarternary mono-oxime HI-6, and to a lesser extent HS-6, caused functional recovery of neuromuscular transmission in vivo and in vitro when given 60 min after soman, i.e. when the soman-cholinesterase (AChE) complex is said to be fully 'aged'. Atropinised rats, with the tracheas intubated, received 4 x LD50 soman i.v. and were kept alive...

The bisquaternary mono-oximes HS-6 and HI-6 may both be considered as potential therapeutic agents for soman intoxication. It has been found that HI-6 was superior to an equal dose of HS-6 in the treatment of soman intoxication in mice and rats. Not only did HI-6 protect against higher levels of soman, but also fewer 'delayed deaths' were seen...

Rat fibrinogen was purified from rat plasma by using lysine-Sepharose chromatography, repeated precipitation with 25%-satd. (HN4)2SO4 and gel chromatography on Sepharose 6B. To minimize proteolytic activity, rats were injected intravenously with Trasylol before bleeding and the collected blood was treated with Trasylol and di-isopropyl...

The inhalation toxicity of peroxyacetyl nitrate (PAN) was examined in acute (single exposure), subacute (4-wk repeated exposure) and subchronic (13-wk repeated exposure) studies in rats. The 4-hr LC50 was found to be 95 ppm. In the 4-wk study rats were exposed to 0, 0.9, 4.1 or 11.8 ppm PAN vapor for 6 hr/day, 5 days/wk. Exposure to 11.8 ppm...

The effects of the myotonic agent, 9-anthroic acid (ANCA), and the acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor, soman, on the isolated phrenic nerve-diaphragm preparation of the rat were studied. ANCA induced after-contractions which followed the twitches evoked by either direct or indirect stimulation. In the intermittently stimulated muscle the...

Atropinised anaesthetised rats were injected i.v. with 4, 6 or 8 x LD50 of the organophosphorous anticholinesterase soman. Subsequent treatment with one dose of HS 6 (100 mg/kg, i.v.) delayed respiratory failure by 1 h or more; a further postponement was obtained when an additional HS 6 infusion was given. At the same infusion rate, HS 6 blood...

The effects of Piracetam, Naftidrofuryl and methamphetamine on several parameters of cerebral energy metabolism have been studied. At variance with some reports in the literature neither Piracetam nor Naftidrofuryl affected the cerebral contents of adenine nucleotides and, accordingly, both substances were without effect on the adenylate energy...

To find out whether alkali treated proteins possess nephrotoxic properties, feeding studies were conducted with drastically treated soybean protein and casein, and also with lysinoalanine (LAL), the amino acid known to be formed in proteins subjected to high pH at an elevated temperature. The feeding of synthesized LAL to rats at dietary levels...

The effect of Piracetam on rat cerebral protein metabolism in vivo and in vitro was studied. It was found that the drug stimulates the uptake of labelled leucine by cerebral cortex slices, has no effect on the incorporation of leucine into cerebral protein, neither in slices nor in vivo, but inhibits the breakdown of newly formed protein in...

The effect of diamide on the radiosensitivity of T cells was investigated under oxic and anoxic conditions. The compound was found to sensitize the cells under both conditions. Under oxic conditions, exposure for 10 min before and during irradiation to 0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 mM diamide produced dose modifying factors of 0.81, 0.60 and 0.55,...

Averaged visual evoked responses (VER) in cortical area 17 were recorded one hour after the administration of 7-l-phe ACTH(4-10) or 7-d-phe ACTH(4-10) to artificially ventilated rats, paralysed with gallamine. In addition, the effects of these peptides on spontaneous motor behavior were analyzed. The results show that the latencies of all VER...

In studies on a model of induced pulmonary metastasis in mice a tumour host system was analysed which was not affected by immunogenicity of the tumour for the host; neither intensive immunosuppression nor immunization caused a significant change in the quantity of pulmonary metastatic nodules. In contrast the application of cytostatic drugs and...

The merits of the 'vacuum form fixation' are discussed for the production of reliable body impressions of patients suffering from sitting problems. Impressions are taken with the patients seated in the desired posture. The first results are reported, obtained from 4 patients of different categories, fitted with individually moulded seats...

Alkali treated spun soy isolate was fed to rats at dietary levels of 5, 10, and 20% for a period of 90 days. The results failed to reveal any adverse effects on general appearance, growth, feeding efficiency, hematological indices, blood serum values, urine composition, kidney function, organ weights, and gross and microscopic pathology except...
