According to the World Health Organization, one-third of the world population is latently infected with M. tuberculosis and 5%-10% of the infected individuals will develop active tuberculosis. It seems that, in the future, tuberculosis infection will be more important regarding the public health as the prevalence of the HIV infection ...

Objective: Glatiramer acetate (GA) has been shown to reduce the number of relapses and improve outcomes in relapsing- remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) patients. The aim of this study is to investigate the efficacy and side effects of GA in RRMS patients treated with it.

Objective: Hyperthermia may induce pathologic alterations within body systems and organs including brain. In this study, neuronal effects of endogenous and exogenous hyperthermia (41[degrees]C) were studied in rats.

The proteome is the sum of all proteins inside a cell, and proteostasis (protein homeostasis) is the stable condition of the proteome. Proteostasis is essential for the cellular and organismal health. Stress, aging and the chronic expression of misfolded proteins challenge the proteostasis machinery and the vitality of the cell. ...

We measured ingestion by Attwater's pocket gopher (Geomys attwateri) in the coastal prairie of Texas by placing feeding chambers in their tunnels. We constructed a nutrient budget from ingestion, species of plants eaten, and nutrient content of these plants, and we compared it to that for the hispid cotton rat ...

Selection of forage by wildlife may drive habitat selection and influence rates of survival and reproduction. To understand patterns in use of forage by elk (Cervus elaphus) in a tallgrass prairie, we collected groups of fecal pellets during 2005-2007 and determined patterns of use based on stable-isotope ratios of carbon ...

We investigated the importance of size, loss of tail, and running speed of banded geckos (Coleonyx variegatus) in encounters with a predatory snake (Hypsiglena chlorophaea) in experimental arenas. We discovered, contrary to previously reported results and our own hypotheses based on observations in the field, that none of these factors ...

To assess response of Mount Graham red squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus grahamensis) to postfire conditions, we monitored size of home ranges and core areas and characteristics of vegetation at middens in an area of low-intensity burn. For a larger-scale assessment, we monitored mountain-wide occupancy of middens. Although red squirrels selected unburned ...

A collection of large mammals was recovered from Pleistocene sediments in the Prescott Valley, Yavapai County, Arizona, during an excavation in 1984. We described specimens of Mammuthus cf. columbi, Equus cf. conversidens, Camelops, and Bison from this locality. These are the first reported occurrences of E. conversidens and Camelops in ...

We studied bullsnakes (Pituophis catenifer sayi) in the Sandhills of Nebraska. Females matured at ca. 90-cm snout-vent length after two seasons (ca. 33 months old), ovulated in early June, and oviposited in mid-June-early July. Frequently, females did not reproduce each year. The proportion reproducing was a function of size of ...

Objectives were to determine number and height of sprouts and seedlings following clearcutting of a mesa dominated by pinyon pines (Pinus edulis) and alligator junipers (Juniperus deppeana) in southwestern New Mexico and to determine effects of prescribed burning for control of sprouts and seedlings. No stump of pinyon pine sprouted. ...

We assessed four potential sources of error in estimating size of the population of Devils Hole pupfish (Cyprinodon diabolis): net, time of day, diver, and order of diver. Experimental dives (3/day) were conducted during 4 days in July 2009. Effects of the four sources of error on estimates from dive ...

The Texas horned lizard, Phrynosoma cornutum, feeds primarily on harvester ants (Pogonomyrmex) across much of its range. We quantified behavior of P. cornutum foraging on Pogonomyrmex relative to habitat and time. For the duration of their morning activity, 14 lizards were observed; we determined their use of habitat and location ...

We used mist nets to survey small migrant and resident birds of scrub habitats in arroyos and adjacent uplands of the northern Chihuahuan Desert during late February-early May 1993-1997. We captured 723 individuals of 49 species. Species diversity was greater in arroyos than in adjacent uplands. Black-throated sparrows (Amphispiza bilineata), ...

Information related to home ranges of the nilgai antelope (Boselaphus tragocamelus) was needed to estimate spread of cattle-fever ticks (Riphicephalus microplus and R. annulatus) and to develop management protocols. We captured, placed telemetry collars on, and monitored 10 male and 12 female nilgai antelopes during February 2006--May 2008. We detected ...

We studied use of habitats and diets of mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) and feral asses (Equus asinus) by comparing vegetation (i.e., normalized-difference-vegetation index, normalized-difference-vegetation-index rate), elevation, slope, and distances to water-catchments, roads, rivers and canals, and washes used by each species. Distribution was similar with respect to distances to roads, ...

The wetland plant Ludwigia peploides (floating primrose-willow) often is problematic in the southern USA, as well as elsewhere in its introduced range. Surveys to identify potential herbivorous insects to use as biological controls have focused on South America, but implementing a management program with foreign insects in the USA is ...

Fragmentation of habitats and distance between drainages in the semi-arid Lower Colorado River Basin has contributed to development of disjunct populations of caddisflies in the region. Caddisflies in streams cluster into discrete regional assemblages in the basin with significantly different assemblages. Distances between drainages in Arizona will likely increase genetic ...
