(1) Consensual but rationally weak criteria devised to extract inferences of causality from such results confirm the generic inadequacy of epidemiology in this area, and are unable to provide definitive scientific support to the perceived mandate for public health action.
(2) The electrical stimulation of the tail associated to a restraint condition of the rat produces a significant increase of immunoreactive DYN in cervical, thoracic and lumbar segments of spinal cord, therefore indicating a correlative, if not causal, relationship between the spinal dynorphinergic system and aversive stimuli.
(3) The 14-fold increase in prolonged apnea frequency immediately following regurgitation supports the hypothesis for a causal relationship between apnea and regurgitation.
(4) The method is implemented with a digital non-causal (zero-phase shift) filter, based on the convolution with a finite impulse response, to make the computation time compatible with the use of low-cost microcomputers.
(5) Treatment was divided into two categories named arbitrarily "no therapy" (general supportive measures) or "therapy" (causal treatment based on active drugs or measures aimed at affecting the cause of the disease).
(6) The most important causal factor, well illustrated by pressure studies, was the presence of a dynamic or static deformity leading to local areas of peak pressure on insensitive skin.
(7) The results support Kuiper and colleagues' distinction between concomitant and vulnerability schemas, and help to clarify differences between cognitions that are symptoms or correlates of depression and those that may play a causal role under certain conditions.
(8) This inhibition was correlated with the enhanced Ado toxicity, suggesting inhibition of methylation as a possible causal factor for the great increase in Ado sensitivity.
(9) It is felt that the use of quinidine was causally related to the development of nephrotic syndrome in this patient.
(10) Epidemiological criteria for a causal association between snoring and vascular disease have not been satisfied.
(11) Although the pathophysiology of the pancreatic injury is obscure, the lack of other etiological factors and temporal association of the pancreatitis with acetaminophen-induced hepatic and renal toxicity suggest a causal relationship.
(12) Twenty-three unique causal pathways to diabetic limb amputation were identified.
(13) With tetrachlorodecaoxide (TCDO), a causal therapeutic concept for the topical treatment of infected hypoxic wounds with chronic disturbance of wound healing has been introduced for the first time.
(14) A recording which implies mtabolic disorder should prompt the immediate search for the causal disturbance.
(15) It is not possible to say whether the changes in PRA and function are causally related or whether changes in plasma sodium alone account for the observed changes in PRA.
(16) The human mutant proteins were isolated by immunoaffinity and shown to have altered enzymatic properties demonstrating the causality of these two allelic mutations for Gaucher disease.
(17) Using this approach, a potential causal linkage between early functional patterns and late structural abnormalities was examined in glomeruli of two established rat models of glomerular sclerosis.
(18) Nonexperimental and experimental studies related to handwashing were reviewed and evidence for a causal association evaluated.
(19) Mitochondria may also be causally related to the cytotoxic or antitumor activities, in that DPPE may be concentrated in cells via the presence of the inner mitochondrial membrane potential.
(20) Whether these two effects are causally related awaits future study.
