GC × GC-MS-Based Volatile Profiling of Male Domestic Cat Urine and the Olfactory Abilities of Cats to Discriminate Temporal Changes and Individual Differences in Urine.

Domestic cats (Felis silvestris catus) are solitary and territorial, and mark their territories by spraying urine, which emits a strong odor produced by volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Previous studies have focused on identifications of specific VOCs, such as 3-mercpto-3-methyl-1-butanol, a cat-specific VOCs. However, little is known about how whole volatile profiles of their sprayed urine change over time or how the profiles differ among individuals. This study investigated temporal changes and individu...


Short communication: Effects of drying and analytical methods on nitrogen concentrations of feeds, feces, milk, and urine of dairy cows.

Nitrogen concentrations in feeds, feces, milk, and urine samples were measured using 2 analytical methods following different drying procedures. Ten samples of corn silage, alfalfa silage, and concentrates collected from 2017 to 2018 at Krauss Dairy Research Center, The Ohio State University (Wooster), were used. A 4-d total collection digestion trial provided fecal samples from 10 cows (1 sample/cow), and another 10 cows were used to collect milk samples (1 sample/cow) and spot urine samples (1 sample/cow)...

Evaluating Ketosis in Primate Field Studies: Validation of Urine Test Strips in Wild Bornean Orangutans (Pongo pygmaeus wurmbii).

The use of urine test strips (e.g., Roche Chemstrip®) has become the standard for quickly assessing the physiological condition and/or health of wild primates. These strips have been used to detect ketosis as a marker of fat catabolism in several primate taxa in their natural environments in response to changing food availability. However, the use of urine strips to determine ketosis has only been validated in human studies, and thus it remains unclear whether these strips accurately detect and quantify ke...


Short-term variability in levels of urinary phosphate flame retardant metabolites in adults and children from an e-waste recycling site.

In the present study, urine samples (n = 258) were collected from adults (n = 42) and children (n = 22) in an electronic waste (e-waste) recycling site. The concentrations and compositions of six di-esters, or the metabolites of phosphate flame retardants (PFRs), were measured at different time points on consecutive days. Bis(2-chloroethyl) phosphate (BCEP), dibutyl phosphate (DBP), bis(1,3-dichloro-2-propyl) phosphate (BDCIPP), and diphenyl phosphate (DPHP) were detected in more than 50% of uri...

Urinary Pesticide Levels in Children and Adolescents Residing in Two Agricultural Communities in Mexico.

The use of pesticides in agricultural activities has increased significantly during the last decades. Several studies have reported the health damage that results from exposure to pesticides. In Mexico, hundreds of communities depend economically on agricultural activities. The participation of minors in this type of activity and their exposure to pesticides represents a potential public health problem. A cross-sectional study was conducted, in which urine samples (first-morning urine) were taken from child...

Epidemiology of Chronic Pain in the Latium Region, Italy: A Cross-Sectional Study on the Clinical Characteristics of Patients Attending Pain Clinics.

In Italy, chronic pain affects more than a quarter of the population, whereas the average European prevalence is 21%. This high prevalence might be due to the high percentage of Italian people who do not receive treatment, even after the passing of law 38/2010 (the right to access pain management in Italy), which created a regional network for the diagnosis and treatment of noncancer chronic pain. Italian epidemiologic studies on chronic pain are scanty, and this observational, multicenter, cross-sectional ...

Development and Validation of Equations to Estimate 24-H Urinary Sodium Excretion from Urine Samples of Patients with Chronic Kidney Disease.

The assessment of sodium intake is difficult due to low accuracy of dietary records and to the inconvenience of 24-h urine collections. Therefore, equations based on spot urine samples have been proposed to estimate sodium intake. In this study, we aimed to develop and to validate equations to estimate 24-h urinary sodium excretion (24hUNa) from several urine samples in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients.

Unmet treatment needs in patients with chronic pelvic pain in a New Zealand gynaecology service.

Chronic pelvic pain, which carries a high burden of disability and distress, is a common presentation to gynaecology clinics. While there is increasing acknowledgment of the complexity of chronic pelvic pain, and the benefits of providing management from a multidisciplinary team within a sociopsychobiomedical framework, the mainstay of management in gynaecology outpatient clinics remains within a single clinician biomedical-focused model. This model of care is only sufficient for women who present with mini...

Quantification of eight bisphenol analogues in blood and urine samples of workers in a hazardous waste incinerator.

Bisphenol A (BPA) has been widely used in the manufacture of polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins. In recent years, producers have started replacing BPA by other chemical analogues, such as bisphenol -S (BPS) and -F (BPF), all of them under the label "BPA-free". However, despite bisphenol (BP) analogues have a very similar structure, their endocrine-disrupting properties could differ from those of BPA. Unfortunately, information regarding human exposure to BP analogues is very limited, not only as single ...

Comparison of urine and blood as a convenient and practical sample for estimating the contamination level of live cattle with radioactive cesium.

Blood and urine were compared to clarify which is a better sample for estimating the concentration of radioactive cesium in muscles of live cattle. The most probable concentration of Cs in muscles was 21.0 times that in blood, and the error of this estimation was 28%. The concentration of Cs in blood was estimated accurately using urine samples. The estimation error did not increase so much (33%), even when the concentration of Cs in muscles was estimated using urine samples. On the other hand, the maxim...

Validation of an LC-MS/MS method for the quantitative analysis of 1P-LSD and its tentative metabolite LSD in fortified urine and serum samples including stability tests for 1P-LSD under different storage conditions.

A variety of hallucinogens of the lysergamide type has emerged on the drug market in recent years and one such uncontrolled derivative of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) is 1-propionyl-LSD (1P-LSD). Due to the high potency of LSD and some of its derivatives (common doses: 50-200 μg), sensitive methods are required for the analysis of biological samples such as serum and urine. The occurrence of an intoxication case required the development of a fully validated, highly sensitive method for the quantifica...

Identification of potential pheromone source in sows.

Pheromones play a pivotal role in intra-species communication for reproduction and social behavior in a variety of mammals, such as boars. For boars, saliva is a rich source of pheromones, however, the identification of additional sources and relative abundance of pheromones in various body fluids of sows is also essential to understand the reproductive behaviors of pigs. The present study was designed to identify the source(s) of pheromones in sows. We collected urine, feces, saliva and vaginal mucus/vagin...
