(2) Philip Shaw, chief economist at broker Investec, expects CPI to hit 5.1%, just shy of the 5.2% reached in September 2008, as the utility hikes alone add 0.4% to inflation.
(3) Recently, it has been shown that radiation therapy, alone or combined with chemotherapy, can be successful.
(4) Basing the prediction of student performance in medical school on intellective-cognitive abilities alone has proved to be more pertinent to academic achievement than to clinical practice.
(5) Arthrotomy with continuous irrigation appears to be more effective in decreasing long-term residual effects than arthrotomy alone.
(6) In addition, control experiments with naloxone, ethanol, or cigarette smoking alone were performed.
(7) Because it has been suggested that the lathyrogen, BAPN, may stimulate the release of proteases, the protease inhibitors Trasylol and epsilon-aminocaproic acid (EACA) were given alone or in combination to BAPN-treated rats.
(8) Cells (1 x 10(5)) were seeded in 12- x -75-mm tissue culture tubes and incubated with various doses of IL-1 beta, IL-1 alpha, TNF-alpha, and IFN-gamma, alone or in specific combinations, for 15 min, two, 12, 24, and 72 h. PGE concentrations in the media were measured by radio-immunoassay.
(9) The authors conclude that H. pylori alone causes little or no effect on an intact gastric mucosa in the rat, that either intact organisms or bacteria-free filtrates cause similar prolongation and delayed healing of pre-existing ulcers with active chronic inflammation, and that the presence of predisposing factors leading to disruption of gastric mucosal integrity may be required for the H. pylori enhancement of inflammation and tissue damage in the stomach.
(10) Exogenous administration of estrogen alone or combined with progesterone have been associated with increased plasma cortisol levels.
(11) Transmission electron microscopy demonstrated that these blebs were devoid of organelles and microvilli; scanning electron microscopy revealed that the blebs were highly wrinkled and more numerous than were the projections observed in tissue from animals treated with testosterone alone, or in tissue from unoperated controls.

(13) DTIC, BCNU and CCNU produced responses in 28% of patients, alone or in combination with each other.

(15) Ketamine alone caused ataxia even in the lowest dose used.
(16) The phenylalanine model allows the rapid assessment of whole body and muscle protein turnover from plasma samples alone, obviating the need for measurement of expired air CO2 production or enrichment.
(17) Infusion of 1 unit of 25-HCC per hour for 6 hours induced an antiphosphaturia only when administered with 0.2 units of PTH per hour, while neither agent alone changed phosphate excretion.
(18) In keratinocyte lines immortalized by E7 alone, the p53 half-life was found to be similar to that in non-transformed cells; however, it decreased to approximately 1 h following supertransfection of an E6 gene.
(19) Renal arteriography is therefore alone capable of answering two primordial questions: "Must surgery be undertaken and when operating, what surgical tactics to adopt".
(20) When given chronically over 6 weeks the advantages of adding benserazide (50 mg kg-1 day-1) to levodopa (40 mg kg-1 day-1) were less marked and although more dopamine was present in the striatum than with levodopa given alone (200 mg kg-1 day-1) there was no evidence of any increase in its metabolites (HVA and DOPAC) and therefore of its turnover and utilisation.
