Plasma metabolic characterisation of dairy cows with inactive ovaries and oestrus during the peak of lactation

types of postpartum anoestrus in cows, is caused by follicular growth disorders and transient functional disturbances of the ovaries ( 20 ). Deficient or nonexistent follicle cyclicity as an anoestrus cause is also IO ( 20 ). Many factors can cause or aggravate IO in cows, including low nutrient intake, high milk yield (MY), inadequate body condition score (BCS), and poor management of stress and diseases ( 2 ). However, nutritional status has a far-reaching impact on the reproductive performance of cows, as there is a close relationship between postpartum ovarian

Serum biomarkers in patients with stable and acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease: A comparative study

present study. No studies were found in literature reporting these markers (especially NLR and PLR) in COPD patients with bronchiectasis, although a limited number of studies reporting on bronchiectasis alone were found involving adult and child patients. In one such study, it was reported that CRP (not NLR) was the best marker in a new scoring system measuring the severity of systemic inflammation in patients with stable bronchiectasis ( 44 ). In a study of child patients with bronchiectasis, it was concluded that leukocyte count, platelet count, absolute neutrophil

Evaluation of long-term antibody response and cross-serotype reaction in ducks immunised with recombinant Riemerella anatipestifer outer membrane protein A and CpG ODN

constructs containing three copies of GACGTT motifs enhanced both humoral and cell-mediated immunity elicited by a rOmpA vaccine in ducks up to five weeks after the primary immunisation ( 3 , 8 ). Results from the homologous challenge showed that ducks immunised with a rOmpA + CpG ODN vaccine had a 90%-reduced pathological score in comparison with the control. In the present study, long-term antibody production (up to nine months post-immunisation) and cross-serotype reaction of the antibody were investigated in ducklings immunised with the rOmpA + CpG ODN vaccine

Effects of ketosis in dairy cows on blood biochemical parameters, milk yield and composition, and digestive capacity

( 11 ), reduced reproductive performance ( 28 ), and increased risk of other illnesses, such as fatty liver, displaced abomasum, and metritis ( 23 ). These characteristics are usually indicative of an abnormal digestive capacity. The present study explored whether ketosis modifies milk yield, milk composition, and digestive capacity. Material and Methods Treatments and management . Fourteen Holstein cows with 2–3 parities were selected at 7–14 days postpartum. Cows with body weight of 606.4 ± 80.2 kg, body condition score of 2.86 ± 0.08, and previous lactation
