(a.) Striped or ribbed with cords; as, cloth with a corded surface.
(a.) Bound about, or wound, with cords.
(1) Patient or fetal cord serum is commonly used as a protein supplement to culture media used in in-vitro fertilization (IVF).
(2) These results indicate that HBV markers in cord blood are either false-positive or due to contamination by maternal blood rather than an indication of in utero infection.
(3) A complex linkage between the cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix is illustrated both in the cord forming Sertoli and granulosa cells, and in the adjacent mesenchymal cells.
(4) Aside from these characteristic findings of HCC, it was important to reveal the following features for the diagnosis of well differentiated type of small HCC: variable thickening or distortion of trabecular structure in association with nuclear crowding, acinar formation, selective cytoplasmic accumulation of Mallory bodies, nuclear abnormalities consisting of thickening of nucleolus, hepatic cords in close contact with bile ducts or blood vessels, and hepatocytes growing in a fibrous environment.
(5) A review is presented concerning the development of new neuroimaging techniques in the last decade which have improved the diagnostic exploration of patients with spinal cord injuries, including studies of possible sequelae.
(6) Subdural tumors may be out of the cord (10 tumors), on the posterior roots (28 tumors), or within the cord.
(7) Eighty-four paraplegic patients whose injury level was T2 or below and who were at least one year from spinal cord injury were screened for upper extremity complaints.
(8) Stimulation with these electrodes were effective for inducing voiding with little residual volume after the recovery of bladder reflexes, 3 weeks after experimental spinal cord injury in the dog.
(9) 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.
(10) In addition to terminating at the brachial segments, they had one to three collaterals to the upper cervical cord (C3-C4), where the propriospinal neurons projecting to forelimb motoneurons are located.
(11) In umbilical cord blood a higher level of lipoperoxide was observed in patients with toxemia of pregnancy than in normal pregnant women.
(12) The antibody reacted with adult as well as with cord red cells, and its reactivity was strongly diminished by treatment of the cells with neuraminidase and to a lesser degree by treatment with protease.
(13) Magnetic resonance imaging of the spinal cord clearly demonstrated the entire lesion.
(14) The evolution of tissue damage in compressive spinal cord injuries in rats was studied using an immunohistochemical technique and by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) analysis.
(15) Results of the present study show that epithelial cells of ciliated columnar type covering vocal cords change remarkably to nonciliated squamous cells between prenatal and postnatal stages.
(16) We have also studied the distribution of tenascin mRNA in the developing spinal cord and spinal ganglia.
(17) Serum ferritin was measured in 51 term normal pregnant mothers and the corresponding cord blood samples.
(18) Spinal cord stimulation would suppress at least the dorsal horn neurons which were destroyed by various kinds of diseases.
(19) These findings support the hypothesis that the presence of FSC tissue will have an effect on the persistence of glial scar tissue in a chronic lesion site as well as limit the extent to which a new scar is formed in response to a second injury to the spinal cord.
(20) The first spinal nerve and the spinal accessory nerve (XI) have no sensory projections, but the second spinal nerve has typical projections along the dorsal funiculus of the spinal cord.
(imp. & p. p.) of Cork
(a.) having acquired an unpleasant taste from the cork; as, a bottle of wine is corked.
(1) So, for example, Cork City's first-leg victory over Apollon Limassol in the first qualifying round of this season's Champions League means one point will be added to the League of Ireland's coefficient next season - but not to Cork's.
(2) The tendon is threaded through a hole in the distal phalanx from the dorsal to the palmar side and impacted like a cork to create an immediate strong fixation.
(3) He went from minstrel show to blackface, from vaudeville to Broadway before he hit a fabulous prosperity as the most sentimental of all sentimental singers, a poor Russian cantor's son daubed with burnt cork and down on one knee sobbing for the "mammy" he had never known in a south that nobody ever knew.
(4) There has been some patching up to do in midfield in recent weeks and that is going to continue for some time, as Morgan Schneiderlin will miss the match against United and Jack Cork, his usual deputy, is out for up to two months.
(5) "I think I heard the putt-putt of champagne corks popping in No 11," one Tory said.
(6) Apple’s Irish offices are based near Knocknaheeny, an impoverished northern suburb of Cork.
(7) This built-in element consists of a drummed (milled) cap reinforced with cast resin, and a cork bedding.
(8) So basically, if UK votes to leave, either Northern Ireland joins with Ireland or I’ll have to leave Northern Ireland and move to Dublin, or Cork, or Edinburgh.
(9) A cross-sectional study on suberosis was conducted to determine the prevalence of respiratory symptoms and the level of pulmonary function, and their relationships within job categories of exposure to cork dust, toluene diisocyanate (TDI) resin bonding and conidia, among cork workers.
(10) Measurements were made in phantoms containing aluminum or cork inhomogeneities.
(11) Various aspects relating to the accuracy of density scaling for air and cork slab inhomogeneities are discussed.
(12) By taking art out of the gallery and sticking it up, unannounced, in the street, he fostered the idea that he was returning art to the people, a graphic Robin Hood set against the feudal grip of Mayfair's Cork Street.
(13) The cork layer of the potato peel prevents dehydration of the wound and protects against exogenous agents.
(14) Some say it's best to bang them against a stone wall or step, others that they should be brined, and others still advocate popping a wine cork into the cooking pot.
(15) Later, during the early 1930s, he won a scholarship to the Royal Academy Schools, but soon began to spend more time in the galleries in and around Cork Street, only a stone's throw away from academia, and the pre-war powerhouse of the modern spirit.
(16) We have preferably employed the so called "inverted graft", while Regnauld, in his recent monography, defines it less satisfactory than the "cork" or "hat" shaped grafts.
(17) Photograph: PR We followed her advice, walking down to the stream in search of terrapins and otters, or through clusters of cork oak trees, their branches hairy with lichen like the ancient trees of a fairytale forest.
(18) Last weekend, 82,000 people wearing the red and white of Cork or the yellow and blue of Clare watched their heroes play out what many regard as the greatest All-Ireland hurling final.
(19) Sandbech, McMorris and Winter X Games champion Max Parrot were among those who threw the much-ballyhooed triple cork, which is three head-over-heels flips considered way more dangerous and athletic and presumed to be the must-have trick to win the first Olympic gold in this sport’s history.
(20) The gifted Cork hurler confessed he had “slept better before AI final (All-Ireland)“ than he had on Thursday night.
