(2) Achilles tendon overuse injuries exist as a spectrum of diseases ranging from inflammation of the paratendinous tissue (paratenonitis), to structural degeneration of the tendon (tendinosis), and finally tendon rupture.
(3) Electroretinographic (ERG), morphometric and biochemical studies on retinas from monkeys or rats reveal that moderate level developmental lead (Pb) exposure produces long-term selective rod deficits and degeneration.

(5) Certain underlying factors in several types of retinal degeneration are first discussed, followed by characteristics of diabetic maculopathy and of other types of macular degeneration including that due to aging.
(6) Hyperopia was more common in younger persons, but senile cataract, macular degeneration and palpebral dermatochalasis or blepharochalasis were more common in older persons.
(7) Since only a few of these medium sized terminals in any one cluster degenerate after tectal lesions, and none degenerate after cortical lesions, it is suggested that the morphological arrangement of these clusters may permit the convergence of axons from several sources, some of which are unidentified, onto the same dendritic segment.
(8) Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) is one of the leading causes of severe visual loss in the United States.
(9) Deafferentation of certain brain regions in adult animals results in (1) the disappearance of degenerating axon terminals and (2) in the temporary persistence of vacant postsynaptic sites.
(10) The eye of a patient with age-related macular degeneration was treated with krypton laser photocoagulation and later studied histopathologically.
(11) At hypothyroid patients there is an ADP excess which is degenerated to xanthine, the substrate of xanthine oxidase resulting in toxic anion superoxide and UA.
(12) After 7 days, various stages of sensory hair degeneration could be observed.
(13) I think you're probably right that the accent does degenerate along with Richard.
(14) Optical light, transmission, and scanning electron microscopy were used in investigations of epithelia in the glandular region of the milk cistern and greater lactiferous ducts and yielded the following findings, four and six hours from infection: degeneration and necrosis of epithelial cells, intraepithelial foreign cell infiltration (neutrophilic granulocytes, lymphocytes, macrophages), intra-epithelial oedema and locally delimited epithelial loss.
(15) Meanwhile, in the US, Ellen DeGeneres , who is 56 and came out in the 90s, is still flying the lesbian flag on TV.
(16) Key findings include a progressive degeneration of these cholinergic neurons characterized by the formation of immunoreactively atypical NFT, the loss of intraneuronal lipofuscin, a lack of senile plaque and beta-amyloid deposition within the basal forebrain, and end-stage gliosis without residual extracellular NFT.
(17) Differential degeneration of the lateral microvessels may account for increases in collagen nodule growth and ultimate size.
(18) Ultrastructurally, the atrial myocardial cells in all three patients were hypertrophied, and two patients had evidence of focal cell degeneration; the atrium was markedly dilated, but atrial arrhythmias were not noted.
(19) Pathological consequences of these events include inflammatory neutrophil infiltration, damage to the collagen and mucosal basement membrane, increased capillary permeability, edema, cell degeneration and necrosis.
(20) These tangential fibers are in part the preterminal arborizations of geniculocortical axons, since some of them have been shown to degenerate after geniculate lesions.
(v. t.) To roll onward or downward; to pass on.
(v. t.) To transfer from one person to another; to deliver over; to hand down; -- generally with upon, sometimes with to or into.
(v. i.) To pass by transmission or succession; to be handed over or down; -- generally with on or upon, sometimes with to or into; as, after the general fell, the command devolved upon (or on) the next officer in rank.

(6) He implied that if Salmond lost the referendum, that would then expose different questions about the organisation and survival of the UK, where power has been devolved in, he said, an incoherent way.
(7) That included "a higher minimum wage; stopping the abuse of zero-hours contracts; skills and careers for all our young people; banks working for businesses again; energy bills frozen; 200,000 homes built a year by 2020; power devolved; the bedroom tax abolished; and our National Health Service restored".
(8) Some, including the Dutch and Polish government, are more interested in devolving power back to the member states.
(9) The 32 dead souls ringing the Dr Strangelove war room of the NFL ownership meeting interrupt their Randroid tongue-bathing only to squeal like scalded truffle pigs at the thought of any power devolving to the actual people whose ability, knowledge and gameplay make the NFL worth watching in the first place.
(10) "In the meantime, we urge the Westminster government to follow the Scottish example, embrace a Plan MacB approach for the UK economy and work with the three devolved administrations through a jobs summit to agree an immediate programme of employment creation."
(11) But if UK solidarity – and the rhetoric of one nation – is to mean something for every person in every corner of a devolved UK, much is to be said for caution over cutting one of the strongest ties that bind.
(12) I am very clear that I want to ensure we get the best possible deal for the United Kingdom that works for everyone across the United Kingdom and all parts of the UK when we enter these negotiation,” said the prime minister in Wales, at the start of a whirlwind UK tour aimed at drumming up last-minute support from the devolved administrations.

(16) He has signed 28 modest "city deals" with authorities to bring local control over areas from devolved transport funding to skills budgets, while – potentially – delivering extra money from the Treasury to Greater Manchester as the local economy grows.
