(16) N-Acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminidase (GAD) activities did not change significantly duringlate fetal, neonatal or young adult stages but increased significantly with advancing age.

(18) Most of the progressive cases were alcoholic, and some showed progression to advanced pancreatitis within 4 years.
(19) Expansion of the cell sheet following attachment, and the fusion of epiblasts advancing toward each other, does not require the presence of mineralocorticoid.
(20) One hundred and sixteen patients with advanced and metastatic adenocarcinoma of the pancreas were randomized to treatment with combined Streptozotocin and 5-fluorouracil or combined Streptozotocin and cyclophosphamide.
(imp. & p. p.) of Anticipate
(1) The effects of sessions, individual characteristics, group behavior, sedative medications, and pharmacological anticipation, on simple visual and auditory reaction time were evaluated with a randomized block design.
(2) Several interpretations of the results are examined including the possibility that the effects of Valium use were short-lived rather than long-term and that Valium may have been taken in anticipation of anxiety rather than after its occurrence.
(3) However, a recrudescence in both psychotic and depressive symptoms developed as plasma desipramine levels rose 4 times higher than anticipated from the oral doses prescribed.
(4) However, the level of sequence identity between B. nodosus 351 pilin and pilin from strain 265 of serogroup H1 is lower than anticipated for strains within a serogroup and suggests that B. nodosus 265 and B. nodosus 351 should not be classified within the same serogroup.
(5) The morbidity is well known and if properly anticipated can be reduced to a minimum by judicious use of antibacterial agents and early surgical intervention when appropriate.
(6) The ceremony is the much-anticipated shop window for the Games, and Boyle was brought in to provide the creative vision.
(7) The survival time of the lambs was markedly shortened with the bubble oxygenator, although much longer than had been anticipated.
(8) Toxicity has been reported in the fetus of a woman ingesting a huge overdose of digitoxin; the same result would be anticipated with digoxin poisoning.
(9) Early diagnosis and exact resuscitation are the two most important aspects of a plan of treatment which anticipates the need for early surgery.
(10) Intraoperative anesthetic complications can be prevented or minimized if the anesthetist is able to anticipate such problems in the preanesthetic period.
(11) The concept of anticipation, the occurrence of a genetic disorder at progressively earlier ages in successive generations, has been debated from the early years of this century, with myotonic dystrophy as the most striking example.
(12) They anticipated the following scenario: a struggling club fires its manager and enjoys an immediate upsurge.
(13) Thorough knowledge of the modes of ventilatory support and criteria for weaning are essential for the critical care nurse to anticipate patient needs.
(14) We anticipate that Tyr34, whose hydroxyl group is only 5 A from the metal, is involved in the catalytic reaction.
(15) Adjustment of posterior arch width and dental alignment, using semi-rapid maxillary expansion by means of an upper removable appliance, to co-ordinate the anticipated positions for the arches.
(16) The observed degree of efficacy of amoxicillin prophylaxis and of tympanostomy tube insertion must be viewed in light of the fact that study subjects proved not to have been at as high risk for acute otitis media as had been anticipated and in view of the differential attrition rates.
(17) But the bill anticipates the outcome by seeking to widen government powers to enable more people to be given support in the form of direct payments, for services up to and including residential care.
(18) A high incidence of bacteremia and localized bacterial infection should be anticipated in patients with AIDS who receive interleukin-2.
(19) Computerized tomography before anticipated percutaneous stone extraction revealed the colon to be positioned posterior to the left portion of the horseshoe kidney.
(20) If radiation therapy is anticipated, completion of radical hysterectomy followed by radiation therapy appears to offer no advantage over radiation therapy with the uterus in place in patients with early-stage invasive cervical cancer and pelvic lymph node involvement.
