To diagnose acute myocardial infarction (MI), many cardiac markers have been used in hematologic and biochemical analysis, and many studies have been published for hematologic and biochemical analysis associated with human acute MI. However, after occurrence of acute MI, the serial investigation for values in hematologic and biochemical analysis including chronic MI has rarely been performed. To observe the change of the serial values in hematologic and biochemical analysis, we induced artificial MI. The left main descending artery (LMDA) of the left coronary artery was ligated during the progression (day 1, 3, 5, 7, 14 and 30) of MI. Total 66 Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into the sham group (n=24, thoracotomy without LMDA ligation) and the experimental (MI) group (n=42, with LMDA ligation). And all individual in each group was sacrified at day 1, 3, 5, 7, 14 and 30 for the hematologic and biochemical analysis. In comparison of hematologic analysis between the sham and MI groups, the mean values of red blood cell (RBCs), hemoglobin and hematocrit (HCT) showed a steady increase. In biochemical analysis, the mean values of glucose, cholesterol, total creatine kinase (CK) and isoenzyme MB, and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) were increased in all MI groups compared with the sham groups. The results of this study suggest that early hematologic and biochemical mean values occurred after acute MI are similar to those of human acute MI. In conclusion, we could observe the alterations and serial values in hematologic and biochemical analysis to the extent of chronic status after acute MI.

Ehrlichia chaffeensis infects human and animals, and causes human monocytotropic ehrlichiosis (HME). It is emerging as a tick-borne zoonosis of concern. Although deer are important natural reservoir hosts of E chaffeensis, few surveys of deer in Korea for E chaffeensis have been conducted. Therefore, we conducted this study to confirm the occurrence of E chaffeensis in deer. To accomplish this study, we collected blood from total 27 deer and then polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and 16S rRNA sequence analyse to evaluate the samples for the presence of E chaffeensis. The results of this study indicated that 9 (33%) of the deer were infected with E chaffeensis. This is the first study to demonstrate that deer in Korea are infected with E chaffeensis, which indicates that they can act as a natural reservoir host for E chaffeensis.

Yersinia enterocolitica is a zoonotic agent, and to cause food poisoning. This study was carried out to get some basic information for the control of Yersinia infection. A total of 1,680 samples were collected from beef and pork carcasses from January 2006 to December 2007 in Seoul. The isolation rate was higher in pork carcass than in beef carcass. Five (0.59%) Yersinia enterocolitica were isolated from the 840 of beef carcasses, and eighteen(2.14%) were isolated from the 840 of pork carcasses. Among 23 strains, 22 were classified into biotype 1A, and one was biotype 6. In serotyping of Y enterocolitica isolates, 21 strains were untypable (UT), and 2 were O5 and O8 respectively. In PCR, Ail gene was not detected in all of 23 strains that determined non-pathogenic. In antimicrobial susceptibility test, twelve strains (52.2%) of 23 isolates showed the multi -resistant patterns with over 3 drugs. PFGE was performed after the genomic DNA of twenty three isolates, which was digested with Xba I. the 23 isolates showed 12 (
) PFGE type.

This study was carried out to investigate the prevalence of fascioliasis of slaughtered and farmed cattle in Gwangju area from February to November in 2007. A total of 1,000 cattle fecal samples were collected from slaughter houses (n=805) and farms (n=185). Twelve (1.2%) were found as positive cases with excretion of the egg of Fasciola spp in the fecal specimens, and 128 (12.8%) were positive in intestinal parasitism using the flotation and sedimentation procedures. The infection rate of fluke larvae from the slaughtered cattle at abattoirs in Gwangju was 0.75% (6 out of 805 heads). In histopathology, there were several liver lesions such as inflammation with infiltration of eosinophil, polymorphonuclear cells, mononuclear cells and multinucleated giant cells, proliferation of connective tissue, calcification and abscess formation.

Swine ascariasis is one of the major parasitic diseases to cause economic losses. This study was carried out to investigate the prevalence of Ascaris suum from slaughtered pigs and return the result to the farm (Feed - back). A total of 8,121 pigs (315 farms) were examined from January to November in 2007. The prevalence of farms detected with milk-spots was 42.9% (135 / 315 farms), and that of pigs with milk-spots was 7% (565 / 8,121 heads). Among 565 pigs with milk-spots, the pigs with grade 1 and grade 2 were 380 and 185, respectively. The percentage of pigs and farms detected with adult worm were 0.6% (45/8,121) and 7.3% (23/315) respectively. There was no statistical difference in affection rateamong seasons. The rate was 5.0% in spring, 8.8% in summer, 8.2% in autumn and 6.3% in winter. There was no enough difference in pig infection rate based on piggery type. The prevalence of milk-spots in stolic type and in sawdust one were 15% and 18.5%, respectively.

This study was conducted to evaluate the effect of honeybee venom, purified using bee venom collector, and feeding of probiotics on the body weight gain, growth rate and hematological characteristics of pigs. A total of 120 pigs were examined and divided into 4 groups 1) Control (basal diet), 2) BV (basal diet + bee venom), 3) PB (basal diet + probiotics), 4) BVPB (basal diet + BV + PB). Average daily weight gain improved significantly in all test groups, especially BVPB (P < 0.05) compared to the controls. There was a significant difference in the feed conversion rate (P < 0.05) and efficiency (P < 0.05) between BVPB and control pigs. Weight gain and survivability was higher in the tests than the controls, but white blood cell count was not. Serum total protein, albumin and IgG concentration of BVPB were slightly higher than those of controls. These results suggest that treated honeybee venom and probiotics should be used together to effectively increase the productivity of pigs.

This study was conducted in order to get basic data on standards and specifications of health and functional foods. A total of 101 kinds of functional healths foods were examined during the period of January to December 2005. Among them, 89 kinds were local products and 12 kinds were imported products. Test items were 6 kinds of heavy metals (lead, cadmium, mercury, copper, zinc and manganese), 5 bacteria (common bacteria, coliform group, E coli, Bacillus cereus and Clostridium perfringens), and 6 preservatives (sorbic acid, benzoic acid, DHA, ethyl paraben, propyl paraben and butyl paraben). As a result of heavy metals, cadmium, was detected from the glucosamine products by 1.52ppm in average, mercury from cereal products by 0.004ppm in average, and lead from chlorella foods by 3.48ppm in average. Bacteria were identified from 3 cereal products, and amount of common bacteria were about
in average. E Coli and Coliform group were isolated from 2 products and 4 products, respectively. All of those products were flour meal products. Any of 6 kinds of preservatives was not detected from all the products. It is thought that these test results will be available as basic data for enactment of relevant laws and regulations for production and control of safer and more hygienic foods in the future because the standards of the harmful heavy metals are not complete or available yet according to the Food Sanitation Law and the Functional Healths Foods Law.
