Age-related changes in the fibre composition of equine peripheral nerve

, : Age-related changes in the fibre composition of equine peripheral nerve. Journal of the Neurological Sciences 90(1): 53-66

Transverse sections of the lateral palmar nerve from a group of horses free from neuromuscular disease were assessed quantitatively, with emphasis on differences in the fibre population related to age. Morphometric analysis of the population of myelinated and unmyelinated fibres was performed. Changes were identified, there being a loss of larger myelinated fibres in older horses. The relationship of myelin thickness to axon diameter and the umyelinated fibre population did not alter with age. The lateral palmar nerve is suitable for biopsy and electrophysiological study in the horse, but age related changes must be appreciated in the interpretation of results.

We propose using ion chromatography to determine tartrate concentration in urine. A 100-microL sample of urine is diluted and injected into the chromatograph. Tartrate is eluted within 11.5 min as a distinct and well-resolved peak. The sensitivity...
