comparison of a new ovine antigen binding fragment (fab) antivenin for united states crotalidae with the commercial antivenin for protection against venom-induced lethality in mice.snake venom poisoning is a medical emergency requiring immediate attention and the exercise of considerable judgment. of the estimated 8,000 bites inflicted by venomous snakes in the united states each year, approximately 6,000 are treated with commercial antivenin. the only commercially available antivenin for north american crotalidae envenomation is antivenin (crotalidae) polyvalent (equine origin) (acp; wyeth laboratories, philadelphia, pa). a common complication is the high incidence of hyp ...19957485708

129i and 137cs fission products in thyroids of animals, 1984-1991.iodine is intensely concentrated in the thyroid of animals, while 137cs is not. in this study, 129i and 137cs concentrations were determined in animal thyroids from selected areas during 1984-1991. the thyroids were from deer killed within the savannah river site (srs) in south carolina; from the environs of oak ridge (or), tennessee; west tennessee; and florida. thyroids from sheep slaughtered routinely in birmingham, england (uk), were also tested. the glands were analyzed by x-ray spectroscop ...19938416215
q fever--california, georgia, pennsylvania, and tennessee, 2000-2001.q fever is a zoonotic disease caused by the bacterium coxiella burnetii. the most common reservoirs are domesticated ruminants, primarily cattle, sheep, and goats. humans acquire q fever typically by inhaling aerosols or contaminated dusts derived from infected animals or animal products. its highly infectious nature and aerosol route of transmission make c. burnetii a possible agent of bioterrorism. although up to 60% of initial infections are asymptomatic, acute disease can manifest as a relat ...200212403408
reproductive effort reduces long-term immune function in breeding tree swallows (tachycineta bicolor).we examined whether strategies of reproductive allocation may reduce long-term immunocompetence through the effects of manipulated effort on secondary or acquired immunity. we tested whether increased reproductive effort leads to reduced immune function and survival by manipulating brood size in tree swallows (tachycineta bicolor) and exposing breeding females to a primary and secondary exposure of sheep red blood cells to elicit a humoral immune response. females raising enlarged broods produce ...200312964994

orf virus infection in humans--new york, illinois, california, and tennessee, 2004-2005.orf virus is a zoonotic parapoxvirus endemic to most countries in the world and is principally associated with small ruminants (e.g., sheep and goats). human orf infections appear as ulcerative skin lesions after contact with an infected animal or contaminated fomite. this report summarizes the epidemiologic and laboratory investigations of four sporadic cases of human orf infection, emphasizing the temporal association between human lesions and skin trauma or recent flock vaccination with live ...200616437055
