(11) Canine distemper virus-immune complex-induced oligodendroglial pathology is thought to be mediated by toxic factors released from stimulated macrophages, this bystander effect demonstrated here in vitro may be relevant to the mechanisms of demyelination in vivo, in which virus persistence plays an important role.
(12) Evidence was obtained that the pathogenesis of experimental PDV-infection in harbour seals shares some features with those of canine distemper in terrestrial carnivores.

(17) However, analogy with canine distemper virus (CDV) suggests that translation of the F protein starts at the sixth AUG codon in the mRNA sequence which is located at position 461, resulting in an F0 protein of exactly the same size (537 aa) as that of CDV.
(18) The presenting signs are described and the aetiology due to canine distemper, trauma and hypothyroidism mentioned.
(19) This effect does not appear to be as severe as that observed for feline leukemia virus of kittens nor as for canine distemper virus in dogs.
(20) Furthermore, a conserved region with about 100 amino acids was observed between PIV-4s and other paramyxoviruses, Newcastle disease virus (NDV), Sendai virus, mumps virus (MuV), PIV-3, BPIV-3, measles virus (MV), and canine distemper virus (CDV), indicating a common ancestor for these nine viruses.
(n.) Any disease of the human body; a distemper, disorder, or indisposition, proceeding from impaired, defective, or morbid organic functions; especially, a lingering or deep-seated disorder.
(n.) A moral or mental defect or disorder.

(2) This treatment was given to 11 patients with Huntington's chorea (ChH), 4 with faciolingual dyskinesis (DFL), 3 with torticollis spasmodicus (TS), 3 with maladie des tics (MT) and 8 with dyskinesia following treatment with L-dopa (MP).
(3) The cries were the pain cries of 2 normal newborns, 1 infant with maladie du cri du chat, 1 with Down syndrome, 1 asphyxiated infant with brain damage, and one asphyxiated infant without brain damage.
(4) We are not claiming that this procedure is a cure for CHD; rather, it is a procedure that dramatically slows down the progress of this malady and allows the dog to lead a more normal lifestyle and avoids euthanasia.
(5) These and other maladies and temptations are a danger for every Christian and for any administrative organisation … and can strike at both the individual and the corporate level,” he said.
(6) It is a microcosm of the region’s maladies and the trauma they have wrought on civilian lives – there are people here who have been wounded in sectarian bloodletting, shelling, airstrikes, occupation and crackdowns by dictators.
(7) Acalculous cholecystitis is an unusual but serious variant of a common disorder in which treatable gallbladder disease may masquerade as a less treatable liver malady.
(8) Although high resolution CT is preferable for study of common maladies of the middle ear and optic capsule, MRI is currently the study of choice for evaluation of the internal auditory canal, cerebellopontine angle, and brainstem.
(9) 93% of the subjects suffered from diabetes mellitus as the basal malady, which was comparable to that in Western studies.
(10) In children with known associated severe medical maladies, diagnostic barium enema can serve to reaffirm the diagnosis prior to the hazardous operative intervention.
(11) No mention of how losing weight (and avoiding maladies) through such surgery could save the NHS millions and therefore be classed as relatively cost-effective.
(12) When humans encounter marine creatures a variety of maladies may occur, ranging from dermatitis to life-threatening trauma, allergy, envenomations, or intoxications.
(13) A very high percentage of farm flock poultry maladies can be diagnosed by gross lesions plus a few simple laboratory procedures, such as direct microscopy, Gram's stain, fecal flotation, and aerobic bacteriology.
(14) Nostalgia was the soldiers’ malady – a state of mind that made life in the here and now a debilitating process of yearning for that which had been lost: rose-tinted peace, happiness, loved ones.
(15) Using a double-blind crossover technique in patients suffering from maladies associated with gastrointestinal spasm, sustained-release 40 mg dicyclomine hydrochloride tablets (Merbentyl Dospan) have been compared with 20 mg plain dicyclomine hydrochloride tablets (Merbentyl).
(16) In the majority of cases the grafts were penetrating (105 out of 118 cases), and the overall analysis of the results is dependent on the following factors: -- Grafts performed as primary procedures in one eye or both eyes: if they develop maladie due greffon, it is usually the 'endothelial' form which appears between the first and third month; the prognosis is good (53-66 p. 100 cure with steroid therapy).
