(15) Richard now is presented, albeit somewhat inconsistently, as evil in response to social ostracism because of his ugly deformities.
(16) Calcium-dependent ATPase, adenylate cyclase and phosphorylation of erythrocyte membrane proteins have been found abnormal in various conditions: hereditary spherocytosis, sickle-cell anemia, progressive muscular dystrophies, all of these disorders being associated with a decreased deformability of the erythrocyte.
(17) Thus many athletes sustain dental-related injuries resulting in deformity and discomfort which may persist throughout their lives.
(18) Type II had the anastomosis too high on the gastric pouch, type III was due to an obstructing marginal ulcer, and type IV had a pouchlike deformity develop in the upper jejunum at the anastomosis that gradually compressed the outflow tract.
(19) This procedure was done in 4 patients and corrected the deformity efficiently, allowing for satisfactory sexual function.
(20) Angiography was performed on 74 hands of 70 patients in this series, and attempts were made to correlate these with the types of the deformities.
(n.) A small lake. See Mere.
(v.) To make defective; to do injury to, esp. by cutting off or defacing a part; to impair; to disfigure; to deface.
(v.) To spoil; to ruin.
(n.) A mark or blemish made by bruising, scratching, or the like; a disfigurement.
(1) With the flat-fee system, drug charges are not recorded when the drug is dispensed by the pharmacy; data for charging doses are obtained directly from the MAR forms generated by the nursing staff.

(3) A patient with rapidly fatal hypereosinophilic syndrome and a bone marrow chromosomal abnormality, 49,XYY,t(3:5),+8,+mar, is described.
(4) Along with a lengthy list of cameos, Girls actor Gaby Hoffmann and Party Down star Martin Starr appear as former Neptune High classmates new to the Veronica Mars universe.
(5) For LO versus MAR and LO versus HI, differences in DR were positively related to differences in the plasma ROH pool size.
(6) Mars is a much more hostile environment than people realise, they point out.
(7) Radioactive gas was released from the medium solution used in the Viking Labeled Release (LR) experiment when interacted with the clays, at rates and quantities similar to those measured by Viking on Mars.
(8) 59: 142-153), we described the production and use of complement-dependent virus-neutralizing monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) and MAb-resistant (mar) mutants to identify five antigenic sites (I to V) on herpes simplex virus type 1 glycoprotein B (gB).
(9) "We hope that we can help in designing the future missions to Mars," said the Frenchman, Romain Charles.
(10) In three patients with CD3- leukemia examined, one showed karyotype abnormality of 46, XY, -10, +mar and the delta gene of TCR was rearranged in one patient.
(11) A comparative study between MAR test and IBT in 142 seminal samples is presented by the authors and their concordance with TAT and SIT is also evaluated.
(12) These involved two craft being carried to Mars and landed with precision on its surface.
(13) Cadbury became the world's largest confectionery company in 2003 after buying up a number of gum brands, including Trident and Stride, but ceded the number one spot to Mars when it took over gum maker Wrigley last year.
(14) There are also the newer methods of the passive hemagglutination assay, the radio-label-antiglobulin test, the ELISA, the hemadsorption procedure, and the ATP-luminescence cytotoxicity method, plus indirect MAR (mixed antiglobulin reaction) and IBT (immunobead test) procedures.
(15) A Del Mar Avionics Pressurometer III system recorded an average of 121 readings on each subject.
(16) Those people will train for seven years; Mars One plans to run a reality TV show with an "audience vote" deciding who will ultimately get the nod .
(17) Miliband's decision to appoint Johnson as his chief spokesman on the economy sent a signal that he intends to assert his own authority on Labour's economic policy, reducing the risk of the splits that marred the Brown-Blair era.
(18) From one phasmid, several marA-containing fragments were cloned: those of greater than or equal to 7.8 kbp restored the ability to form Mar mutants in a deletion strain.
(19) Giant spiders from Mars This is particularly handy later, when we encounter the mid-level boss, a giant spider-like vehicle known as a Fallen Walker.
(20) He insists that it'll help Nasa with the Mars mission and other prospective manned missions to outer space.
