  1. 1. Effects of Elaphostrongylus spp. infection on haematology and blood chemistry – in moose (Alces alces), reindeer (Rangifer tarandus), goat (Capra aegagrus hircus) and sheep (Ovis aries)

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Anatomy, Physiology and Biochemistry

    Author : Elin Engerström; [2021]
    Keywords : E. alces; E. rangiferi; elaphostrongylosis; muscleworm; brainworm; small ruminant; eosinophilia; biochemistry; serum chemistry;

    Abstract : The aim with this study was to investigate the effects Elaphostrongylus alces and Elaphostrongylus rangiferi have on haematology and blood chemistry in experimentally infected animals. The nematodes of genus Elaphostrongylus spp. can cause neurologic disease, myositis, verminous pneumonia and increased mortality. READ MORE

  2. 2. Feasibility of Dynamic SPECT-Renography with Automated Evaluation Using a Deep Neural Network

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Sjukhusfysikerutbildningen

    Author : Viktor Rogowski; [2021]
    Keywords : Medicine and Health Sciences;

    Abstract : Introduction: Renography is a standard diagnostic examination that evaluates renal function, renal pelvic dilatation and urinary obstruction. Renography is performed by injecting a radiopharmaceutical (predominately 99mTc-MAG3) and using gamma camera to image the biodistribution in a dynamic sequence. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sex and tissue specific DNA methylation patterns in the house sparrow (Passer domesticus)

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Institutionen för biologisk grundutbildning

    Author : Yuming Shi; [2021]
    Keywords : DNA methylation; tissue-specific pattern; sex-specific pattern; house sparrow;

    Abstract : DNA methylation patterns are sex and tissue specific in many species, yet many studies useblood samples, due to its accessibility, to establish links between the DNA methylation anddifferent phenotypes. This raises the question of whether DNA methylation in blood samplesreflect the DNA methylation pattern in other tissues that are more relevant to the phenotypebeing studied. READ MORE

  4. 4. Significant increase in liver and heart mass found in post hatching red junglefowls (Gallus gallus).

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Biologi

    Author : Frederik Pedersen; [2021]
    Keywords : Red Junglefowl; Gallus Gallus; Embryonic development; Hatchlings; Heart; Liver; Increase in mass;

    Abstract : Significant heart and liver increase in hatching and neonates has been found evident in multiple different species such as the emu, Peking Duck, and pigs. The relative mechanism behind heart growth could be tied to closing of the ductus arteriosus, however there is still a debate whether it’s significant impact in avian species. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sinperiodens inverkan på nästkommande laktation : hur vanliga produktionssjukdomar kan förbyggas

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Tilde Larsson; Elisabet Nilsson; [2021]
    Keywords : dry cow; dry period; dry cow management; dry cow feeding; acetonemia; ketosis; displaced abomasum; dry cow fertility; fatty liver; hypokalcemia;

    Abstract : I takt med att avkastningen hos mjölkkor ökat på grund av förbättrade avelsstrategier och bättre management har också produktionssjukdomarna fortsatt vara närvarande, framför allt vid tiden runt kalvning. Vid denna tid är kon extra utsatt på grund av att hon ofta drabbas av negativ energibalans vilket kan leda till fysiologiska och biokemiska förändringar i kroppen. READ MORE
