CONCLUSION: Advising pregnant women about behaviours and lifestyle habits to prevent infectious diseases remains important, and information about preventive practices needs to be complete and adequate. The health care providers who participated in this study did express a clear need for information related to food safety during pregnancy and listeriosis, as supported by their lack of knowledge in some areas. If that lack is remedied, the knowledge gained could improve counselling practices. PMID: 30030057 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study was conducted using 80 multiparous Awassi ewes during the breeding season to compare the effects of controlled internal drug release (CIDR) treatment durations on ewe reproductive performance, hormone profiles, and economic production measures. Ewes were evenly allotted to one of various CIDR treatment durations (3, 6, 9, or 12 d) in four groups (CIDR3, CIDR6, CIDR9, and CIDR12 (control), respectively). The ewes in all groups were injected with 300 IU of equine Chorionic Gonadotropin (eCG) at the time of withdrawal. Blood samples were collected at the time of CIDR insertion and withdrawal, as well as at the time...

Publication date: Available online 21 July 2018Source: Small Ruminant ResearchAuthor(s): Jeanette Olejnik, Natalka Suchowerska, Muren Herrid, Michael Jackson, Geoff Hinch, Jonathan HillAbstractMany alternatives to surgical castration have been explored to induce short or long term infertility in male animals. Comparatively few have been carefully evaluated in very young production animals. A comparison of four treatments known to deplete testicular cells in rodents (heating, cooling, chemotherapy, radiation) was undertaken using ram lambs.Neither testicular cooling (0 °C) nor heating (45 °C) affected ...

ConclusionParental infertility or fertility treatment was not associated with an overall risk of childhood epilepsy. Parental infertility may be associated with an increased risk of idiopathic generalised epilepsy; a subtype of epilepsy believed to be of genetic origin.
