  1. The influence of porcine prophenin on neutrophils isolated from rabbit blood during implantation of calcium sulphate graft material into bone tissue

    Wessely-Szponder, Joanna; Bobowiec, Ryszard; Szponder, Tomasz
    Immune dysfunction induced by surgical trauma may comprise either an inappropriately exaggerated inflammatory response or a profound suppression of cell- mediated immunity. Neutrophils are the leading cells in the first response to trauma. It is known that they mediate initial resistance to bacterial infection. Activated neutrophils can degranulate and release some enzymes such as elastase and myeloperoxidase (MPO). The function of elastase is, among others, to kill bacterial, whereas MPO is a specific enzyme of primary granules of neutrophils and a marker of in vivo neutrophil activation. Previous reports estimated that some cathelicidins could act to increase or diminish an...

  2. Perceptions among university students in Seville (Spain) of the rabbit as livestock and as a companion animal

    González-Redondo, Pedro; Contreras-Chacón, Gema M.
    The rabbit has various utilities and roles, mainly as a meat-producing animal, game species, companion animal, laboratory animal or pest. Among these roles, rabbit breeding for meat has traditionally prevailed in the Mediterranean countries. However, in recent decades the practice of keeping this species as a companion animal has been on the rise; a factor that could be changing public perception of the rabbit. A survey of 492 university students from Seville, Andalusia, Spain, was conducted to determine young people's perceptions of the rabbit as livestock and as a companion species. The rabbit received the lowest score when regarded as...

  4. Hair cortisol levels determined at different body sites in the New Zealand White rabbit

    Comin, Antonella; Zufferli, Valentina; Peric, Tanja; Canavese, Federico; Barbetta, Davide; Prandi, Alberto; prandi
    This study was designed to determine hair cortisol levels in the New Zealand White (NZW) rabbit and to examine possible differences in the cortisol levels of hair samples collected from different body regions in stable environmental conditions. The experiment was performed on eight 18 month-old female NZW rabbits. All animals were shaved to collect hair samples from 26 different body regions. Hair cortisol levels were determined by the RIA method. The mean hair cortisol concentration for the 26 samples in the 8 animals was 2.12±0.05 pg/mg (mean±standard error). This study reveals individual hair cortisol distributions in the 8 animals (P<0.001)...

  5. Effect of lycopene supplementation on semen quality and reproductive performance in rabbit

    Mangiagalli, M.G.; Cesari, Valentina; Cerolini, S.; Luzi, Fabio; Toschi, I.
    A total of 18 hybrid strain Martini male rabbits were randomly divided into three experimental groups. The animals in the first and second groups drank water with 0.1 and 0.5 g/l of lycopene addition (B and C groups, respectively), while water without any supplement was administered to the control group rabbits (A group) for 8 weeks. Semen was collected from 18 bucks (6 animals/group) for 5 consecutive weeks. Ejaculate volume was determined by graduated test tube and sperm concentration was calculated by Neubauer chamber. Sperm motility was evaluated subjectively by a phase contrast microscope and forward progressive motility (FPM) scored...

  6. Digestive efficiency in rabbit does according to environment and genetic type

    Friggens, Nicolas C.; Larsen, Torben; Savietto ., Davi; Blas Ferrer, Enrique; Cervera Fras, Mª Concepción; Baselga Izquierdo, Manuel; Pascual Amorós, Juan José
    Ninety lactating rabbit does of three different genetic types [2 from a line differentiating 20 generations by selection for litter size at weaning (lines V16 and V36) and 1 from a line founded under reproductive longevity criteria and then selected by litter size at weaning (line LP)] were subjected to three environmental conditions: NC, females housed under normal conditions (14 to 20oC) and fed with a control diet (333 g NDF/kg DM); HC, females housed under heat conditions (25 to 35oC) and fed with the control diet; or NF, females housed under normal conditions and fed with a fibrous diet...

  7. Abstracts of the XXXVI Symposium de cunicultura de ASESCU, 2011

    World Rabbit Science
    The annual Congress of the Spanish Association of Cuniculture (ASESCU) was held in Peñíscola (province of Castellón, autonomous community of Valence) on 12-13th May of 2011. The 36th edition was devoted to analyse the actual situation of the rabbit sector. It was presented an overview of the situation of the rabbit farming in the province of Castellón, an analysis of the factors that determine the final price of the rabbit meat in the market. Moreover, a special session devoted to the rabbit farmers studied the environmental control in the farms and the main factors influencing the profitability in the rabbit...
