`Babec`, the 24-year-old gorilla, lives in Birmingham zoo since 1993 and was diagnosed as suffering from cardiovascular disease last spring. Heart-procedure was indicated - and performed.

He had a transesophageal echocardiogram, in which a tube holding an ultrasound was placed down his esophagus to examine his heart.

Babec has had the procedure two times before. Each procedure lasts two to four hours.

According to zoo spokesman Ed Noles, the incurable disease may manifest into a cough, lethargy, poor appetite and fluid buildup.

Pharmacokinetics of quinocetone in ducks after two routes of administrationmembers
Quinocetone (QCT), an antimicrobial growth promoter, is widely used in food-producing animals. However, information about pharmacokinetics (PK) of QCT in ducks still remains unavailable up to now. In this study, QCT and its major metabolites (1-desoxyquinocetone, di-desoxyquinocetone and 3-methyl-quinoxaline-2-carboxylic) in ducks were studied using a simple and sensitive UHPLC-MS/MS assay.
