(18) Of 55 new open reading frames analysed by gene disruption, three are essential genes; of 42 non-essential genes that were tested, 14 show some discernible effect on phenotype and the remaining 28 have no overt function.
(19) Essential characteristics of the composite bone cement included a homogeneous and uniform fiber distribution, and a minimal increase in apparent viscosity of the polymerizing cement.
(20) The median blood levels were lower in hyperacidic subjects and higher in hypoacidic patients; the urinary excretion of the digitalis compound showed no essential differences.

(4) Some fundamentals of the causes of diagnostic errors depending upon anatomophysiological and topographo-anatomical peculiarities of woman's organism are given.
(5) Speaking to pro-market thinktank Reform, Milburn called for “more competition” and said the shadow health team were making a “fundamental political misjudgment” by attempting to roll back policies he had overseen.
(6) These data suggest that there are fundamental differences in the mechanisms of induction of virally and chemically induced thymic lymphomas in AKR mice.
(7) The findings support our earlier suggestion that the kinetics of spermatogenesis in the quail are fundamentally similar to the pattern which has been described for mammals.
(8) The crystallographic parameters of four different unit cells, all of which are based on hexagonal packing arrangements, indicate that the fundamental unit of the complex is composed of six gene 5 protein dimers.
(9) Which brings us to the next fundamental question: Was it a terrorist attack?
(10) The trials have yielded much fundamental and clinical data of general relevance in the radiotherapy of malignant disease.
