I want to extend my thanks to Dr. Dodds for talking with us today and for her work with the Rabies Challenge Fund. Thanks also to Dr. Ron Schultz and Kris Christine of the fund. Extending the length of time between rabies vaccinations, thereby reducing the total number of vaccines animals receive during their lifetime, will be a huge benefit to the health and well being of family pets across the globe. Gathering serial serum rabies titer data during the full course of the study also provides a new database to help veterinarians and dog licensing authorities assess exposure risk and levels of protection, especially for those dogs that cannot safely or should not receive a rabies booster.
Red blood cells (RBCs) exhibit a unique deformability, which enables them to change shape reversibly in response to an external force. The deformability of RBCs allows them to flow in microvessels while transporting oxygen and carbondioxide. Low level laser therapy can affect the physical as well as chemical properties of blood cells which is not only helpful in preservation of blood but also in revitalizing the physically and chemically stressed erytherocytatory membranes . It was determined that the laser therapy decreases the viscosity of blood thus increasing the electrophoreticmobility of erythrocytes. The improvement in microcirculation is a result of all the above factors and dynamics.
In rabbits, fetal weight reduction and cleft palate were observed at a fluticasone propionate dose approximately times the MRHDID for adults (on a mg/m² basis at a maternal subcutaneous dose of 4 mcg/kg/day). However, no teratogenic effects were reported at fluticasone propionate doses up to approximately 20 times the MRHDID for adults (on a mg/m² basis at a maternal oral dose up to 300 mcg/kg/day). No fluticasone propionate was detected in the plasma in this study, consistent with the established low bioavailability following oral administration [see CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY ].
