The present study was designed to determine the effect of low and high salt diet on sperm parameters, oxidative status and reproductive hormone levels of male rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 18 rats were divided into three groups: Group I: (control) received % salt diet, Group II: low salt (received % salt diet) and Group III Cited by: It was concluded that cull peas or extruded cull beans may be used in diets fed to growing pigs as a supplemental protein source without significantly diminishing efficiency or rate of growth. Bakery wastes resulted in less efficient gains (p.   We aimed to further evaluate the reproductive consequences of prenatal betamethasone exposure in male rats. Pregnant Wistar rats (n = 13/group) were separated into two groups: control (vehicle) and betamethasone- treated ( mg/kg IM) and rats Cited by: During preclinical investigations into the safety of drugs and chemicals, many are found to interfere with reproductive function in the female rat. This interference is commonly expressed as a change in normal morphology of the reproductive tract or a disturbance in the duration of .

While the testicular effects of phthalates in rats have been known for more than 30 years, recent attention has been focused on the ability of these agents to produce effects on reproductive development in male offspring after in utero exposure. These esters and in particular di‐butyl, di‐(2‐ethylhexyl) and butyl benzyl phthalates have. Rats had holes drilled into their skulls for invasive brain experiments. The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) deliberately breeds mice to be genetically predisposed to have debilitating ailments—including cancerous tumors, obesity, paralysis, a depressed immune system, and high levels of anxiety and depression. Each year, JAX sells millions of mice. The use of augmentative biological controls in greenhouse pest management has increased the demand for predators. To meet demands, suitable artificial diets must be developed to enable fast and. Disease control is one of the most challenging areas for producers and veterinarians in swine production. Biosecurity is often perceived as keeping diseases out of a swine herd. However, excluding disease from a herd is nearly impossible because of the natural presence of pathogens — the endemic pathogen load — in all swine herds. Therefore, the goal of a biosecurity program is to keep out.

Difference are noted in size and function of organs, reproductive performance, and behavior. •Adrenals are smaller, especially the cortex in laboratory rats. •Ovaries, testes, and secondary sex glands are the same size but mature earlier and function continuously (no seasonal cycle) in laboratory rats. A 2-yr grazing performance study was conducted in Eastern Colorado to evaluate the effects of feeding raw cull beans (Phaseolus vulgaris) or canola meal, compared to sunflower meal, to beef cows. Pradosia huberi is a species found in the Amazon region and used as an antiulcerogenic and gastroprotective agent; however, phytochemical analysis has revealed the presence of compounds with potential toxic effects on the reproductive system. For the evaluation of the toxicity of P. huberi on male fertility, male Wistar rats were divided into four groups: one control (distilled water p.o.) and. Knowledge of the varied and unwanted effects of natural pathogens in laboratory rodents has steadily increased over the past years of conducting animal research. The historic struggle against pathogens of laboratory rodents is often divided into three periods. The first (–) was when mice and rats became common research animals.
