(17) This study in the chicken investigated whether the integrity of taste buds in the lower beak is normally dependent upon innervation by the chorda tympani.
(18) A low incidence of gross malformations such as twisted limbs, abnormal beak, short neck and everted viscera were observed; however, the increased incidence was not statistically significant when compared to controls.
(19) The value of a combined developmental and functional approach to morphology, i.e., integrated investigation of development of structure and function of the beaks and related jaw musculature, is discussed.
(20) Genetic stock by age and beak treatment by age interactions were present for hen-housed production and egg mass, and the interactions appeared to result primarily from increased mortality from cannibalistic pecking with increased age.

(4) Afternoon Delights doesn't have anything approaching a mission statement – it's just two middle-aged men arsing about, frankly – but its gleeful anarchism can be riotously funny: witness the pair as free runners, declaring "war against the urban environment", or their magnificently coiffed Rock'n'Rollers, with the aid of subtitles, showing off their moves on the streets of Ashford, Kent.
(5) The patient is allowed to do functional exercises 24 hours after reduction with the aid of the spring stepping roller, which not only helps dissipate swelling in the early stage but also remold the articular facet.
(6) The system includes a membrane oxygenator and a roller pump.
(7) Since tobacco is known to be mutagenic and carcinogenic, urinary cotinine was estimated in bidi rollers and control subjects as an index of tobacco-specific exposure while the concentration of urinary thioethers was determined to ascertain exposure to electrophilic moieties.
(8) A covalently bonded heparin-coated extracorporeal membrane oxygenation system and a roller pump were used for the bypass.
