(13) One of the reasons for doing this study is to give a voice to women trapped in this epidemic,” said Dr Catherine Aiken, academic clinical lecturer in the department of obstetrics and gynaecology of the University of Cambridge, “and to bring to light that with all the virology, the vaccination and containment strategy and all the great things that people are doing, there is no voice for those women on the ground.” In a supplement to the study, the researchers have published some of the emails to Women on Web which reveal their fears.

(16) And we owe [Hickox] better than that and all the people who do this work better than that.” The White House indicated that it was urgently reviewing the federal guidelines for returning healthcare workers, “recognising that these medical professionals’ selfless efforts to fight this disease on the front lines will be critical to bringing this epidemic under control, the only way to eliminate the risk of additional cases here at home”.
(17) The Authors report the results of IgM and IgA assays in blood of the umbilical cord of 1694 newborns during the period from October 1973 to July 1974 after a rubella epidemic occurred in Piedmont.
(18) The authors studied the pattern of occurrence of toxic oil syndrome, a previously undescribed disease that occurred in Spain in epidemic form in 1981, in two convents in Madrid.
(19) Analysis of the epidemic curve and intervals of onset of multiple cases within households suggested prolonged common source exposure rather than secondary person-to-person transmission.
(20) Galli said there were already about 200,000 hospitalisations of women who have undergone a clandestine termination every year, and a suspected 1 million illegal abortions before the epidemic.
(n.) A coming or happening; as, the occurence of a railway collision.
(n.) Any incident or event; esp., one which happens without being designed or expected; as, an unusual occurrence, or the ordinary occurrences of life.
(1) By presenting the case history of a man who successively developed facial and trigeminal neural dysfunction after Mohs chemosurgery of a PCSCC, this paper documents histologically the occurrence of such neural invasion, and illustrates the utility of gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance scanning in patient management.
(2) Hypothyroidism complicated by spontaneous hyperthyroidism is an interesting but rare occurrence in the spectrum of autoimmune thyroid disorders.
(3) We therefore enumerated the percentage of Leu2a+ cells as well as the occurrence of HLA-DR activation markers within this population.
(4) Several interpretations of the results are examined including the possibility that the effects of Valium use were short-lived rather than long-term and that Valium may have been taken in anticipation of anxiety rather than after its occurrence.
(5) In addition to the phase diagrams reported here for these two binary mixtures, a brief theoretical discussion is given of other possible phase diagrams that may be appropriate to other lipid mixtures with particular consideration given to the problem of crystalline phases of different structures and the possible occurrence of second-order phase transitions in these mixtures.
(6) The authors followed up the occurrence of inflammation-mediated osteopenia (IMO) in young and adult rats weighing 50 g and 150 g, respectively.
(7) The methodology, in algorithm form, should assist health planners in developing objectives and actions related to the occurrence of selected health status indicators and should be amenable to health care interventions.
(8) The occurrence of episodes of desaturation during sleep in patients suffering from chronic airflow obstruction is well known.
(9) A striking feature of BEN is the familial occurrence of the disease.
(10) On the basis of mathematical models of the obtained dose-time-effect relationship, the risk of cancer occurrence due to small carcinogen doses is predicted.
(11) In this study, bacterial flora, especially the occurrence of A. actinomycetemcomitans, in the periodontal pockets of one juvenile with gingivitis (G), one JP patients, five rapidly progressive periodontitis (RP) patients and one adult periodontitis(AP) patient, and one adult with healthy periodontium was investigated using a blood agar medium and a selective medium for A. actinomycetemcomitans.
(12) By using these methods, it was clearly indicated that these factors such as TDF of rectum, Z-coordinate of weighted geometric center (WGC-Z), the dose of whole pelvic irradiation, history of chemotherapy and Treponema pallidum hemoagglutination test (TPHA) were important for occurrence of rectal complication.
(13) This study examined the frequency of occurrence of velar deviations in spontaneous single-word utterances over a 6-month period for 40 children who ranged in age from 1:11 (years:months) to 3:1 at the first observation.
(14) So we concluded that duplications and accessories should be thought to have similar meanings with the ordinary branching patterns of MCA in the occurrence of aneurysms.
(15) In a Caucasian woman with a history of ocular and pulmonary sarcoidosis, the occurrence of sclerosing peritonitis with exudative ascites but without any of the well-known causes of this syndrome prompts us to consider that sclerosing peritonitis is a manifestation of sarcoidosis.
(16) However, this inhibition was not found in rats treated with castor oil for 3 d. Moreover, 5-HT concentration in the midbrain significantly decreased in rats that acquired the adaptability for the occurrence of diarrhea.
(17) The timing of the occurrence of the disease is closely related to the conceptional age of the infant rather than weeks post birth, birth weight, gestational age at birth.
(18) Vital staining of neuroblastoma cells with acridine orange produces a bright intracellular red-orange fluorescence most probably due to the occurrence of RNA.
(19) The presence of potential insect vectors and the occurrence of clinical signs are indications of active transmissions.
(20) They do suggest the presence of a relatively small subpopulation in whom reduction of plasma cholesterol may lead to increased occurrence of cancer.
