This laboratory guidebook provides step-by-step procedures that will aid in the dissection and collection of major organs and tissues of the most common species of small animals used in biomedical research. Through extensive use of photographs and illustrations, the dissector is guided through a complete necropsy of each species for the purpose of collecting the organs and tissues routinely examined by pathologists. The techniques described will enable the technician to perform necropsies on almost any mammal in a precise and logical sequence, and to properly collect tissue in order to avoid diagnostic errors. Morphological differences among the various species are discussed.

After nearly 20 years, the publication of this Second Edition of The Biology of the Laboratory Rabbit attests to its popularity within the scientific community as well as to the need to update an expanding database on the rabbit as a major species in laboratory investigation. The principal aim of this text is to provide a comprehensive and authoritative source of scientifically based information on a major laboratory animal species. The text continues to emphasize the normal biology as well as diseases of the European (domestic) rabbit, Orytolagus cuniculus, especially the New Zealand White breed, with occasional reference to other rabbit species (Sylvilagus sp.) and hares (Lepus sp.). New topics have been added to this second edition in response to changing trends in biomedical research and product testing as well as to suggestions from readers. New chapters included on: Anesthesia and analgesia Models in infectious disease research Models in ophthalmology and vision research Polyclonal antibody production Toxicity and safety testing Drug doses and clinical reference data

The central nervous system functions by the use of many different neurotransmitters. The classic transmitters acetylcholine and norepinephrine are the best known. However, many actions in postganglion neurons are effected by non-adrenergic and non-cholinergic substances for which the acronym NANC has been adopted. This monograph will cover these novel transmitters.

Die 3. vollständig überarbeitete Auflage dieses Buches führt in die Biologie parasitärer Einzeller, Würmer und Arthropoden ein. Die Autoren bieten auf Grundlage der aktuellen Systematik eine Übersicht über die verschiedenen Parasitengruppen. Ausführlich wird auf wichtige Infektionserreger, wie die der Malaria, Schlafkrankheit und Toxoplasmose eingegangen, wobei die molekularen Grundlagen der Pathogene erläutert werden. Außerdem werden Parasiten als Krankheitsüberträger dargestellt und wichtige Infektionskrankheiten, die bei Tieren vorkommen, besprochen. Daher wendet sich dieses Buch sowohl an Biologen, als auch an Veterinärmediziner und Mediziner. In den einzelnen Kapiteln kommen die Anpassungen an die parasitische Lebensweise zur Sprache. Anhand häufiger Vertreter werden exemplarisch typische Lebenszyklen, die Immunreaktionen und die resultierenden Krankheitsbilder erklärt. Viele Abbildungen veranschaulichen dabei den Text. Die Prüfungsfragen am Ende eines jeden Kapitels helfen den Lerninhalt zu rekapitulieren und zu verinnerlichen.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) Office of Water (OW) initiated the Health Advisory Program in 1978 to provide information and guidance to individuals or agencies concerned with potential risk from drinking water contaminants for which no national regulations currently exist. Since that time, over 100 Health Advisories (HAs) have been published in final form for inorganic, organic, and microbial contaminants. This volume contains HAs for munitions chemicals developed as part of a Memorandum of Understanding between the U.S. EPA and the Department of the Army. To develop each HA, the authors reviewed toxicological data for each chemical and presented the relevant studies to allow an evaluation of the data without continued reference to the primary documents. Each HA has undergone critical internal review by the OW Toxicology Review Panel, EPA program offices, the EPA Reference Dose (RfD) Committee, the EPA Carcinogen Risk Assessment and Verification Enterprise (CRAVE) Committee, and the Army Medical Department (for munitions chemicals only). Finally, the HAs were reviewed by an external panel of experts in toxicology and risk assessments. Drinking Water Health Advisory: Munitions will be an important reference document for all DOD/DOE hazardous waste sites, drinking water professionals, and academic libraries.
