Review article: the alkali treatment of straws

, : Review article: the alkali treatment of straws. Animal Feed Science and Technology 2(2): 105-130

The Beckmann method of alkali treatment consists of soaking straw in dilute alkali sol. for 24 h and then washing it with clean water. Straw digestibility is increased from about 40 to about 70%. While this process has been known for 50 yr, it has not been much used because treatment costs are too high. Also, it cannot be industrialised.

Knowledge about how to treat severe Henoch-Schönlein nephritis (HSN) is scarce. The aim of our study is to compare cyclosporine A (CyA) and methylprednisolone pulses (MP) in the treatment of severe HSN. Out of 24 pediatric HSN patients with nephr...
