We conducted a nitrogen balance digestion trial to determine the crude protein requirements of paca (Cuniculus paca) during the last growth phase. In a 4 × 4 Latin square design, four young captive male pacas, aged 5 months, were fed four isoenergetic diets containing four different levels of nitrogen (N) (11.3, 16.6, 21.4, and 26.6 g N/kg of dry matter). After 15 days of adaptation, we collected all feces and urine for five consecutive days. By regression analysis between N intake and N in feces and urine, the metabolic fecal nitrogen (MFN = 4...

It is hypothesized that the visual and weight cues afforded by bottle-feeding may lead mothers to overfeed in response to the amount of liquid in the bottle. The aim of the present pilot study was to test this hypothesis by comparing mothers' sensitivity and responsiveness to infant cues and infants' intakes when mothers use opaque, weighted bottles (that remove visual and weight cues) compared to conventional, clear bottles to feed their infants. We also tested the hypothesis that mothers' pressuring feeding style would moderate the effect of bottle type...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Brown adipose tissue activation has been considered a potential anti-obesity mechanism because it is able to expend energy through thermogenesis. In contrast, white adipose tissue stores energy, contributing to obesity. We investigated whether the early programming of obesity by overfeeding during lactation changes structure of interscapular brown adipose tissue in adulthood and its effects on thermogenesis. METHODS: Birth of litters was considered day 0...

Enostosis or eosinophilic panosteitis is a common disease in young growing large-breed dogs, such as the German Shepherd, and the risk of developing the disease by 3-4 months of age is increased by a high calcium intake. The aim of the study was to investigate whether German Shepherd puppies raised on milk replacers receive more calcium and/or vitamin D than their requirements in the pre-weaning period and thus are at increased risk of developing skeletal diseases. To this end, we surveyed German Shepherd breeders in the Netherlands about the use of puppy milk replacers (PMR)...

In modern surgical practice it is advisable to manage patients within an enhanced recovery protocol and thereby have them eating normal food within 1-3 days. Consequently, there is little room for routine perioperative artificial nutrition. Only a minority of patients may benefit from such therapy. These are predominantly patients who are at risk of developing complications after surgery. The main goals of perioperative nutritional support are to minimize negative protein balance by avoiding starvation, with the purpose of maintaining muscle, immune, and cognitive function and to enhance postoperative recovery...

We have used total enteral nutrition (TEN) to moderately overfeed rats high-polyunsaturated fat diets to develop a model for nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed by TEN a 187 diet containing 5% (total calories) corn oil or a 220 diet in which corn oil constituted 5, 10, 25, 35, 40, or 70% of total calories for 21 or 65 days. Rats fed the 5% corn oil, 220 had greater body weight gain (P < or = 0.05), fat mass (P < or = 0...

BACKGROUND: Shake flasks are widely used because of their low price and simple handling. Many researcher are, however, not aware of the physiological consequences of oxygen limitation and substrate overflow metabolism that occur in shake flasks. Availability of a wireless measuring system brings the possibilities for quality control and design of cultivation conditions. RESULTS: Here we present a new wireless solution for the measurement of pH and oxygen from shake flasks with standard sensors, which allows data transmission over a distance of more than 100 metres in laboratory environments...

A fluoride overfeed occurred at a well site near an elementary school in Portage, Michigan. The incident resulted in a high concentration of fluoride (92 milligrams per liter) in drinking water at the school. Seven students who drank water from the school fountain reportedly suffered nausea and vomiting. Toxicological evaluations were made by conducting a risk assessment. On the basis of the symptoms experienced by the students, it was concluded that the fluoride had irritated the stomach causing nausea and vomiting...

Clinical incinerators are important combustion appliances which need to meet emission regulations of increasing severity. In present designs the principles of overfeed and underfeed ignition, well established for coal firing, do not appear to have been appreciated in the incinerator field. It is suggested that important advantages could accrue from using overfeed rather than underfeed ignition and complete rather than partial combustion in the primary chamber.

OBJECTIVE: To determine the extent and confirm the cause of an August 1993 outbreak of acute fluoride poisoning in a small Mississippi community, thought to result from excess fluoride in the public water supply. METHODS: State health department investigators interviewed patrons of a restaurant where the outbreak first became manifest and obtained blood and urine samples for measurement of fluoride levels. State health department staff conducted a random sample telephone survey of community households...

The metabolic response to trauma, including neurotrauma in general, has been studied extensively, but the acute metabolic response to spinal cord injury (SCI) has not. Therefore, 12 patients with SCI are presented in whom intensive nutrition assessment and management were instituted immediately after injury. Nitrogen balance (NB), predicted energy expenditure (PEE), and actual energy expenditure (MEE) were calculated or measured in each patient. A persistent negative NB was observed in all but one of the 12 patients...

Industrial fermentations carried out in a 500-l bioreactor were monitored on-line by a prototype of a split-flow modified thermal biosensor. Acetaldehyde and glycerol in the extracellular broth were monitored over the first 48 h of fed-batch fermentations. The aim was to determine the usefulness of these secondary metabolites for on-line monitoring and control. When fermentation of the 13-16 g/l batch sugar was monitored, using immobilised aldehyde dehydrogenase, the acetaldehyde reached a peak value of 0.3 g/l...

Female rat pups were overfed by continuous intragastric infusion of a milk formula from day 4 through day 128 postpartum. These rats dramatically accelerated weight gain after day 109. By day 18 the overfed pups weighted significantly more than both normally reared 18-day-old pups and pups reared artificially but maintained at the same growth rate as normally reared pups. On day 18 the catheters were removed from gastrostomized pups and normally reared pups were removed from their dams. Thereafter, all groups were maintained ad libitum on a standard diet...

In some isolated parts of North Africa, there persists an ancient Berber custom of imposing an overfeeding regimen on young girls before marriage, to achieve an obesity which is regarded as aesthetically pleasing. We have studied the effect of such a regimen, lasting 12--16 weeks, on blood lipids and on the affective reactions to sweet tastes in nine subjects. It is known that the pleasantness of alimentary cues i.e., the feeding behaviour, depends on the subject's nutritional state. Only three subjects gained weight (by 3,5 and 8 kg), in spite of the strong pressure to overeat...

Simmental and Hereford bulls were individually fed varying levels of the same diet to determine the effects of energy intake after weaning, degree of fatness, and short-term weight change on reproductive characteristics of yearling beef bulls. For 200 d (ending in May), 29 Simmentals were fed an average of 14.6, 19.2 or 23.8 Mcal and 27 Herefords were fed 13.4, 17.5 or 22.2 Mcal metabolizable energy per bull daily. Bulls then were adjusted to a roughage diet for 10 d before grazing brome pasture for 38 d (ending in June)...

The following are some of the key elements to successful rearing of the orphaned puppies and kittens: Do not overfeed, especially during the first several days, to allow for adaptation to the milk replacer. Use a milk replacer with a composition similar to the natural milk. Cleanliness during feeding is essential. Weigh the animals periodically to monitor performance and establish feeding levels. Maintain a warm, draft-free environment with adequate humidity. Keep the animals clean and aid their bowel movements and urination if necessary...

Among all hospitalized patients, burned patients have been shown to have the greatest increase in metabolic demand. However, the temptation to overfeed those patients must be recognized, as that practice may lead to increased morbidity. Care must be taken to provide an appropriate nutritional regimen in order to minimize protein catabolism and to promote wound healing. Several formulas for calculating energy and protein needs for burned patients have been reviewed for this article, along with guidelines for estimating other nutrients for such patients...

The related central nervous system peptides neuropeptide Y and peptide YY have been found to be among the most potent endogenous stimulants of feeding behavior. We measured these neuropeptides in cerebrospinal fluid to determine whether they contributed to the pathophysiologic characteristics of anorexia and bulimia nervosa. Cerebrospinal fluid neuropeptide Y concentrations were significantly elevated in underweight anorectic patients and in many of the anorectic patients studied at intervals after weight restoration...
