Hematological reference values of healthy adult Sangsari sheep (Iranian fat-tailed sheep) estimated by Reference Value Advisor
In this study, we used a total 63 healthy Sangsari sheep at the same physiological status for both sex with two ages (2–4 years) from June to July 2014. Hematological parameters were measured by routine methods, and finally, reference interval (RI) was determined by the robust method and Box-Cox transformation (Reference Value Advisor). The RI of hematological parameters obtained in this study includes the following: hematocrit (Hct) 14.3–35.3 %; Hb 5.4–12.52 gr/dl; mean corpuscular volume (MCV) 26.2–36.3 fl; mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) 8.6–12.3 pg; mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) 22.3–45.2 gr/dl; RBC 5.1–12.6 × 106; PLT 42.1–725.7 × 103; WBC 4.4–17.7 × 103; neutrophil 1.8–10.18 × 103; band neutrophil 0.00–0.15 × 103; lymphocyte 0.3–7.54 × 103; eosinophil 0.00–1.2 × 103; and monocyte 0.00–0.32 × 103. Compared with literature data, Hct, Hb, RBC indices, RBC, and PLT were lower in other sheep breeds whereas total and differential WBC counts were similar to other breeds. RBC and Hb were significantly higher in females (P ≤ 0.05). In the present study, significant differences in some of the hematologic parameters were found, the most probable explanation of which can be a...

However, the effect of MW radiation on human skin biology is not well understood. We study the effects of pulsed high-power microwaves (HPMs) on melanoma (G361 and SK-Mel-31) and normal human dermal fibroblast (NHDF) cells. A pulsed power generator (Chundo...
Passive measles immunity waned quickly, and most infants were no longer protected from measles by age 3 months, a study found; US experts say the age of vaccination should remain the same.Medscape Medical News

Resting state functional connectivity (RSFC) has been widely studied in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and is observed by a significant temporal correlation of spontaneous low-frequency signal fluctuations (SLFs) both within and across hemispheres during rest. Different hypotheses of RSFC include the biophysical origin hypothesis and cognitive origin hypothesis, which show that the role of SLFs and RSFC is still not completely understood. Furthermore, RSFC and age studies have shown an “age-related compensation” phenomenon. RSFC data analysis methods include time domain analysis, seed-based correl...
ConclusionLL/MLD4, MLA, MLD, the degree of luminal diameter stenosis, CCO, RI, and %APV derived from cCTA can support the detection of hemodynamically significant coronary stenosis as compared with iFR®, with LL/MLD4 showing the greatest discriminatory power.
