ARTs in wild felid conservation programmes in Poland and in the world

indigenous population of the lynx and European wildcat utilising in situ methods have been implemented in Poland for many years. In the case of lynx conservation, these professional activities in particular cover restoration and improvement of the connection between large forests, improvement of the forest quality, improvement of the availability of food sources, and increasing biodiversity and expanding existing populations through reintroduction ( 43 , 44 ). The areas inhabited by the European wildcat are usually protected as natural landscape parks or national parks

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

temperature to dryness. The dry extract was then redissolved in 100 μL of acetonitrile:H 2 O (1:1, v/v), vortexed for 30 s, sonicated for 10 min in an ice bath, and centrifuged at 12,000 × g for 15 min at 4°C to remove insoluble debris. From each treated sample, 5 μL of the supernatant was mixed as a quality control (QC) sample and 70 μL was aliquoted for LC–MS detection ( 12 ). Detection analysis . Detection was performed using an Agilent 1290 Infinity II LC system (Agilent Technologies, USA) coupled to a TripleTOF 6600 System (Q-TOF; AB Sciex, USA). The following

Clinical chemistry investigations in recumbent and healthy German Holstein cows after the fifth day in milk

(Serum-Kabevette, Kabe Labortechnik GmbH, Germany) were obtained from the coccygeal vein. Additionally, serum blood samples were also taken from control dairy cows (CDC) matched by housing group, lactation number, lactation stage, and gestation stage. Before the tubes were centrifuged (4 min, 3,000 × g), samples were allowed to coagulate for 30 min at 25°C in order to extract serum of high quality ( 17 ). Serum was subsequently stored at −20°C for a maximum of 14 d until analysis, as no marked changes in analyte levels are to be expected during short-term storage ( 4

Treatment of systemic diseases and oral focal infection

disease are common in the population. Most oral lesions, especially chronic periodontitis, have no enough apparent pain to be alerted. Therefore, timely treatment is difficult. In the case of normal immune function, oral lesions exist for a long time without attack. Once the immune function changes, an acute attack may occur, even inducing infection during the treatment of certain systemic diseases. Thus, treatment plans for systemic diseases are difficult to proceed smoothly. This phenomenon affects the quality of life of patients and endangers their entire health
