1. Forbes, Nadine Andrea. The effects of corticosterone on the growth and development of mouse long bone.

Degree: MS, Biology, 1995, Florida International University

Adolescent mice were exposed to short term hypergravity of varied intensities and durations. Same age mice were not exposed to these stresses but were used as the controls. Results indicated no changes in body weight. Serum glucocorticoid concentrations had graded increases due to increased exposure showing also sexual dimorphism (females exceeding males). There was no difference among the groups in the femur length, breaking moment, and diaphyseal diameter (lateral to medial). Femur diameters (anterior to posterior) decreased as the exposure increased but no sexual differences were evident in all seven groups. Male femur cortical wall diameter was thicker than the females. Both male and female cortical wall thickness (lateral to medial and anterior to posterior) decreased as exposure increased. Endogenous glucocorticoid may play a crucial role in mechanical load studies. It is an important variable challenging the limitations of previous anabolic effects of mechanical load on the growth and development of long bone. Advisors/Committee Members: Scott Quackenbush, Philip Stoddard, Ophelia Weeks.

2. Frese, Thomas Jay. Acute toxicity of copper sulfate in juvenile red drum (Sciaenops ocellatus) and the establishment of safe methods to control parasitic disease.

Degree: MS, Biology, 1994, Florida International University

A series of static 96 hour acute toxicity tests were performed on juvenile red drum of different sizes. The tests were implemented to assess the acute toxicity of copper sulfate to juvenile red drum and establish narrowly defined guidelines for its usage in the treatment of Amyloodinium ocellatum and Cryptocaryon irritans. Median lethal concentrations at which a 50 percent mortality response (LC5 o) were observed ranged from 0.28 mg/1 to 0.88 mg/l in the series of five 96h static acute toxicity tests. A significantly higher sensitivity was observed in early juveniles (2.9 g, 53.3 mm) versus the test runs using older juveniles (11.9, 24.4, 24.7, and 34.4 g). Based on the results of acute toxicity tests and actual experimental treatment regimes performed throughout this study, administration of 0.4 mg/1 CuSO4 for 3h daily over a 14d duration is believed to be a relatively safe, yet effective dose for maturing juvenile red drum. Advisors/Committee Members: L. Scott Quackenbush, Joel Trexler, Ronald D. Jones.

3. Dubitsky, Susan Strum. The effects of laboratory-induced mood on secretory immunoglobulin A in saliva.

Degree: PhD, Psychology, 1994, Florida International University

The effects of induced mood on secretory immunoglobulin A (SIgA) were tested on 104 students (51 men & 53 women) using a mixed design with between subject factors of gender, induced mood (positive vs. negative), method of induction (writing about oneself vs. viewing a video), and a within subject factor, time (baseline vs. posttest). A split-plot multivariate analysis of covariance, controlling for salivary flow rate, did not support a causal link between induced mood alone and change in SIgA concentration. The effect of induced mood on blood pressure and heart rate was also examined. There were no significant main effects, but gender interacted with mood induction such that females experienced an increase in blood pressure in the positive mood induction condition. There was no significant effect of method of mood induction on SIgA, blood pressure, or heart rate. Stable personality traits, however, moderated the effects of mood induction. Persons who scored higher on depression and neuroticism, and lower on positive affect had significantly higher SIgA concentrations in the negative mood condition. There were no significant effects of personality traits on SIgA levels in the positive mood condition, nor did they interact with induced mood to change blood pressure or heart rate. These data suggest that although SIgA concentration may not be subject to short-term laboratory mood manipulations alone, changes in SIgA concentration may be associated with an interaction of stable personality traits and mood state, especially in the case induced negative mood.
