Two dogs with increased thyroxin concentrations compatible with hyperthyroidism were referred for further examinations. One dog displayed clinical signs of hyperthyroidism. Based on history, clinical examination, laboratory evaluation and scintigraphy an alimentary thyrotoxicosis was identified. It was caused by feeding a BARF diet containing thyroidal tissue in one dog and by conventional dog food in the other patient. After changing the diet the clinical signs resolved in the affected dog. A control examination revealed thyroxin concentrations within the reference range in both dogs...

Aerobic reactions of CoX2 (X = OAc, Cl) or Co(ClO4)2 with (S,S)-1,2-diphenylethylenediamine [(S,S)-dpen] in CH3OH, followed by HCl or HClO4 additions, give the diastereomeric lipophobic salts Λ-[Co((S,S)-dpen)3](3+)3Cl(-) [Λ-(S,S)-1(3+)3Cl(-)] or Δ-(S,S)-1(3+)3ClO4(-) (60-65%) with high degrees of selectivity. Anion metatheses (room temperature) and equilibrations (charcoal, CH3OH, 70 °C) show that the former is more stable than Δ-(S,S)-1(3+)3Cl(-), and the latter is more stable than Λ-(S,S)-1(3+)3ClO4(-)...

Complex [PtMe2 (PMe2 ArDipp2 )] (1), which contains a tethered terphenyl phosphine (ArDipp2 =2,6-(2,6-(i) Pr2 C6 H3 )2 C6 H3 ), reacts with [H(Et2 O)2 ]BArF (BArF(-) =B[3,5-(CF3 )2 C6 H3 ]4(-) ) to give the solvent (S) complex [PtMe(S)(PMe2 ArDipp2 )](+) (2⋅S). Although the solvent molecule is easily displaced by a Lewis base (e.g., CO or C2 H4 ) to afford the corresponding adducts, treatment of 2⋅S with C2 H2 yielded instead the allyl complex [Pt(η(3) -C3 H5 )(PMe2 ArDipp2 )](+) (6) via the alkyne intermediate [PtMe(η(2) -C2 H2 )(PMe2 ArDipp2 )](+) (5)...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is one of the most common postoperative complications of general anesthesia in pediatrics. Aromatherapy has been shown to be effective in treating PONV in adults. Given the encouraging results of the adult studies, we planned to determine feasibility of doing a large-scale study in the pediatric population. METHODS: Our group conducted a pilot randomized controlled trial examining the effect of aromatherapy on post-operative nausea and vomiting in patients 4-16 undergoing ambulatory surgery at a single center...

Targeting hyperactive MAPK signaling has proven to be an effective treatment for a variety of different cancers. Responses to the BRAF inhibitors vemurafenib and dabrafenib and the MEK inhibitors trametinib and cobimetinib are, however, transient, and complete remission is rarely observed; rather, outgrowth of resistant clones within progressed tumors appears inevitable. These resistant tumors display great heterogeneity, which poses a major challenge to any salvage therapy. Recent focus has, therefore, been on the early dynamics of inhibitor response during tumor regression...

The low-electron-count cationic platinum complex [Pt(ItBu')(ItBu)][BAr(F) ], 1, interacts with primary and secondary silanes to form the corresponding σ-SiH complexes. According to DFT calculations, the most stable coordination mode is the uncommon η(1) -SiH. The reaction of 1 with Et2 SiH2 leads to the X-ray structurally characterized 14-electron Pt(II) species [Pt(SiEt2 H)(ItBu)2 ][BAr(F) ], 2, which is stabilized by an agostic interaction. Complexes 1, 2, and the hydride [Pt(H)(ItBu)2 ][BAr(F) ], 3, catalyze the hydrosilation of CO2 , leading to the exclusive formation of the corresponding silyl formates at room temperature...

Anamnesis: A litter of Bernese Mountain Dog-puppies (6 weeks of age) was meant to be fed a "BARF" (bones and raw food) diet. The breeder asked for advice regarding the nutritional adequacy of the feeding plans that she had compiled for the different growth stages. The anamnesis showed the puppies to be underweight for their age and expected adult body mass at the time of request for a ration check. The bitch had almost stopped lactating. Ration check: The review of the feeding plans for the different growth stages revealed a deficient energy supply for all stages and at times an inadequate protein supply...

The influence of remote peripheral substitution on the physicochemical properties and reactivity of phosphorus and manganese corrolazine (Cz) complexes was examined. The substitution of p-MeO for p-t-Bu groups on the eight phenyl substituents of the β-carbon atoms of the Cz ring led to changes in UV-vis transitions and redox potentials for each of the complexes. The oxygen atom transfer (OAT) and hydrogen atom transfer (HAT) reactivity of the Mn(V)(O) complexes was also influenced by p-MeO substitution. The OAT reactivity of Mn(V)(O)(MeOP8Cz) (MeOP8Cz = octakis(p-methoxyphenyl)corrolazinato(3-)) with triarylphosphine (PAr3) substrates led to second-order rate constants from 10...

New cationic enamine-β-diimine cobalt complex [LCoBr·THF][BArF] () and its neutral analogue [LCoBr2] () where L = [(2,4,6-Me3-C6H2)NHCMe[double bond, length as m-dash]C{CMe[double bond, length as m-dash](N-2,4,6-Me3(C6H2))}2] and BArF(-) = [{3,5-(CF3)2C6H3}4B](-), were synthesised and then characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, MALDI-MS, IR and elemental analysis. These complexes, the first examples reported where putatively tridentate β-triketimines prefer a bidentate coordination mode, were examined as catalysts for the polymerization of isoprene, activated by diethylaluminium chloride (DEAC) or ethylaluminium sesquichloride (EASC)...

Reactions of trans-Fe(CO)3(P((CH2)mCH═CH2)3)2 (m = a/4; b/5, c/6, e/8) and Grubbs' catalyst (12-24 mol %, CH2Cl2, reflux) give the cage-like trienes trans- Fe(CO)3(P((CH2)mCH═CH(CH2)m)3 P) (3a-c,e, 60-81%). Hydrogenations (ClRh(PPh3)3, 60-80 °C) yield the title compounds trans- Fe(CO)3(P((CH2)n)3 P) (4a-c,e, 74-86%; n = 2m + 2), which have idealized D3h symmetry. A crystal structure of 4c suggests enough van der Waals clearance for the Fe(CO)3 moiety to rotate within the three P(CH2)14P linkages; structures of E,E,E-3a show rotation to be blocked by the shorter P(CH2)4CH═CH(CH2)4P linkages...

This Account presents the development of the iridium-catalyzed isomerization of primary allylic alcohols in our laboratory over the past 8 years. Our initial interest was driven by the long-standing challenge associated with the development of a general catalyst even for the nonasymmetric version of this seemingly simple chemical transformation. The added value of the aldehyde products and the possibility to rapidly generate molecular complexity from readily accessible allylic alcohols upon a redox-economical isomerization reaction were additional sources of motivation...

A computational study is presented of a complex of thallium with a neutral β-triketimine ligand which was found to form dimers with close Tl-Tl interactions. Single point energies, using the crystallographic structures, suggest that the system is bound only when BArF counter ions are included in the calculations. Energy decomposition analysis of the system was carried out in order to investigate the nature of the bonding. Across the methods, calculations show the electrostatic interaction to be repulsive for the dimer with no counter ions, but attractive when BArF counter ions are included...

Reactions of (NH4)2OsX6 (X = Cl, Br) with CO and the phosphines P((CH2)mCH[double bond, length as m-dash]CH2)3 (m = 6, a; 7, b; 8, c) give cis,cis,trans-Os(CO)2(X)2(P((CH2)mCH[double bond, length as m-dash]CH2)3)2 (46-73%). These are treated with Grubbs' catalyst (7 mol%, 0.0010 M, C6H5Cl). Subsequent hydrogenations (PtO2) yield the gyroscope like complexes cis,cis,trans-Os(CO)2(X)2(P((CH2)n)3P) (n = 2m + 2; X = Cl, 6a-c; Br, 7a-c ; 5-31%) and the isomers cis,cis,trans-Os(CO)2(X)2(P(CH2)n-1CH2)((CH2)n)(P(CH2)n-1CH2) (X = Cl, 6'ac; Br, 7'a-c;12-51%) derived from a combination of interligand and intraligand metatheses...

Poor sleep quality or quantity impairs glycemic control and increases risk of disease under chronic conditions. Recovery sleep may offset adverse metabolic outcomes of accumulated sleep debt, but the extent to which this occurs is unclear. We examined whether recovery sleep improves glucose metabolism in mice subjected to prolonged sleep disruption, and whether high fat intake during sleep disruption exacerbates glycemic control. Adult male C57BL/6J mice were subjected to 18-h sleep fragmentation daily for 9 days, followed by 1 day of recovery...

BARF (Bone And Raw Food) is an increasing trend for feeding dogs in Germany. This article provides an overview of the history and principles of this type of feeding. Risks of feeding raw-meat diets include infections of dogs with parasites, bacteria and viruses. Some of these pathogenic organisms also have zoonotic potential. Additionally, raw-meat diets often show nutritional imbalances. Over-supplementation and deficiencies of nutrients are frequently found, especially regarding calcium, the trace elements copper, zinc and iodine, vitamins A and D and the calcium   :   phosphorus ratio...

UNLABELLED: The concentrations of creatine and its degradation product creatinine were determined in a variety of unprocessed as well as processed feedstuffs suitable for dogs. Unprocessed feedstuffs were categorised as single feedstuffs, bone and raw food diets (BARF), and small vertebrates, for example prey animals. Processed feedstuffs were categorised as meat/meat and bone meals, complete wet diets and complete dry diets. The feedstuffs were chosen to cover a broad range of each of the three defined processed and unprocessed feed categories available on the market without further subclustering...
