(3) Lung metastases leading to death were observed in one patient with small-cell osteosarcoma despite complete destruction of the primary tumor by preoperative chemotherapy.
(4) Since alkaline phosphatase, a glycoprotein, is not affected, the destruction is selective and presumably involves only the most exposed membrane components.

(7) Finally, the uptake was completely abolished by prior mechanical or osmotic destruction of the intima.
(8) The weapon is 13 metres long, weighs 60 tonnes and can carry nuclear warheads with up to eight times the destructive capacity of the bombs that hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki in the second world war.
(9) While a clearcut relationship cannot be established between heavy metal music and destructive behavior, evidence shows that such music promotes and supports patterns of drug abuse, promiscuous sexual activity, and violence.
(10) Quite the contrary, in cases of higher nervous activity disturbances, destruction of the organelles and desintegration of spine apparatuses is clearly pronounced.
(11) Granule cell destruction began early, and was widespread by 2 days in vitro, when oligodendrocyte destruction also began in treated cultures.
(12) The ferrochelatase-inhibitory activity, porphyrin-inducing activity, and cytochrome P-450- and heme-destructive effects of a variety of analogues of 3,5-diethoxycarbonyl-1,4-dihydro-2,4,6-trimethylpyridine (DDC) were studied in chick embryo liver cells.
(13) A simple technique that consists of curetting the subcutaneous tissue in the necrotic area of the lesion, to prevent the local destructive actions of the toxin, is described.
(14) The high proteolytic activity of BCC demonstrated in this study may be an important factor in the proliferative, invasive and destructive behaviour of this tumour.
(15) North Korea has produced tons of propaganda films that portray America’s destruction.
(16) The object of these studies was to investigate whether destruction of the renal medulla in normal rats would alter vascular capacitance.
(17) We simply do whatever nature needs and will work with anyone that wants to help wildlife.” His views might come as a surprise to some of the RSPB’s 1.1 million members, who would have been persuaded by its original pledge “to discourage the wanton destruction of birds”; they would equally have been a surprise to the RSPB’s detractors in the shooting world.
(18) The tissue destructive process is slower in older than in younger people, and the prognoses in correctly treated cases is good.
(19) Although these two destructive entities are completely different in many respects, they share a common denominator: the initial lesions are brought about by an aggregate of bacteria known as plaque.
(20) It is concluded that the massive destruction of the normal anatomy in the lateral semicircular canal may be the morphological basis of a functional endolymphatic fistula for drainage of the endolymphatic hydrops.
(v. t.) The act of plundering; robbery; deprivation; despoliation.
(v. t.) Robbery or plunder in war; especially, the authorized act or practice of plundering neutrals at sea.
(v. t.) The act of an incumbent in taking the fruits of his benefice without right, but under a pretended title.
(v. t.) A process for possession of a church in a spiritual court.
(v. t.) Injury done to a document.
(1) This apparatus executes permanently and automatically the taking of biological fluid, estimates its outflow, amounts its total and realizes or the reinstillation of the fluid in the digestive tract or the order of intravenous perfusion tied to fluid spoliation according to an adjustable connection.
(2) This case highlights the rare complications of cholelithiasis (hematobilia and cholecyto-colic fistula) and the severity of blood spoliation.
(3) Hydrophilic contact lens spoliation can be associated with the deposition of calcium salts.
(4) To resolve cases where ownership is disputed, the government set up a committee known as the spoliation advisory panel in 2000.
(5) This relative spoliation in pancreatic blood supply as hypovolemia proceeds supports an ischemic etiology of acute pancreatitis (AP), which could account for some of the so-called idiopathic cases of AP.
(6) The Lasthenie de Ferjol Syndrome associates an iron-deficient anemia by blood auto-spoliation with mental disorders.
(7) The aim of the Automaton Resuscitation is execution, watching and maintenance of a programme of intricate resuscitation tying for the first time the therapeutic to extemporaneous outflow of biological spoliation.
(8) Moreover it allows with fiability the reinstillation of the gastric, duodenal, bilious, pancreatic or intestinal juice, on the other hand an intravenous perfusion tied to spontaneous spoliation (digestive) or instigated spoliation (provocated diuresis) and in a fundamental way simplifies the work of the physicians and the nurses.
(9) A recent report from our laboratory showed that pancreatic inflammation induced by hypovolemic shock can be explained to some extent by spoliation in pancreatic perfusion as revealed by electromagnetic flow determinations on the gastroduodenal artery (GDA).
(10) Local calcium concentrations are unlikely therefore to be a significant primary factor in soft contact lens spoliation, but the enlargement of the tear pool associated with the use of a soft contact lens does greatly increase the amount of calcium present, and this may be a factor in secondary deposition.
