(12) What the film does, though, is use these incidents to build an idiosyncratic but insightful picture of Lawrence, played indelibly by Peter O'Toole in his debut role: a complicated, egomaniacal and physically masochistic man, at once god-like and all too flawed, with a tenuous grip both on reality and on sanity.
(13) Heart rate elevation observed after hand grip maneuver did not change.
(14) That's why the policies that are desperately needed for the majority to break the grip of a failed economic model would also help make regulated migration work for all: stronger trade unions, a higher minimum wage, a shift from state-subsidised low pay to a living wage, a crash housing investment programme, a halt to cuts in public services, and an end to the outsourced race to the bottom in employment conditions.
(15) Once I’d checked she was OK I said, ‘Stop crying now.’ ” So it’s about managing emotions: ‘I’m going to need you to get a grip.’” “If you’ve got interesting points to make about the devaluing of serious words like bullying and depression, why make them in a way that sounds like you’re ridiculing people who are suffering?” I ask.
(16) "Zidane, Zidane, Zidane... France was in the grip of 'zizoumania'," Marcel Desailly wrote in his autobiography, reflecting on the triumph on home soil eight years ago, when giant images of the No 10 covered the sides of floodlit office blocks.
(17) The Holland manager had decided to retain the 5-3-2 system that worked so effectively against Spain but he reverted to 4-3-3 at the interval after losing Martins Indi and accepting that something had to change to enable his players to get a grip on a game that Australia were controlling in the first half.
(18) Loss of the righting response was not associated with any gross reduction in skeletal muscle tone (inclined screen and wire grip tests) and it was proposed that the animals were not anaesthetized but instead could be placed on their backs because flurazepam had enhanced the cataleptic effect of THC.
(19) The blood flow through the forearm was measured 2 sec after single, brief isometric hand-grip contractions.
(20) Analysis of the rate of functional recovery as measured by total active motion, gross grip strength, and pinch grip strength showed no significant difference between the two groups.
(n.) An epidemic affection characterized by acute nasal catarrh, or by inflammation of the throat or the bronchi, and usually accompanied by fever.
(1) The transported pIgA was functional, as evidenced by its ability to bind to virus in an ELISA assay and to protect nonimmune mice against intranasal infection with H1N1 but not H3N2 influenza virus.
(2) Precipitin tests had considerable advantages over other methods of serological diagnosis of influenza.
(3) The plasmid pMucAMucB, constructed from the Haemophilus influenzae vector pDM2, and a similar plasmid, constructed from pBR322, increased the survival after UV irradiation of Escherichia coli AB1157 with the umu-36 mutation and also caused UV-induced mutation in the E. coli strain.
(4) Rifampin is recommended as a prophylactic treatment for intimate contacts of young children who develop invasive infections with Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib).
(5) We evaluated the safety and efficacy of a conjugate vaccine that links the H. influenzae type b capsular polysaccharide to the outer-membrane protein complex (OMPC) of Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B.
(6) The epidemiological effectiveness of dipyridamol, an interferon-inducing agent used for the prevention of influenza and viral acute respiratory diseases, was tested in 4 epidemiological trials, 3 of them carried out as double blind trials.
(7) Other organisms found together with N. miningitidis were H. influenzae (2 cases), S. dysgalactiae (1 case) and M. tuberculosis (1 case).
(8) H. influenzae also may acquire heme from hemopexin and albumin, which have not been previously investigated.
(9) In a field trial a new influenza subunit vaccine was tested in parallel with a vaccine prepared from the whole virus.
(10) It seems likely that a vaccine against H influenzae b, effective in under two year olds, will become available in the next few years.
(11) An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) was developed for detecting antibody to type A avian influenza (AI) virus.
(12) Penicillin-binding protein (PBP) alterations have been associated with non-beta-lactamase-mediated ampicillin resistance in Haemophilus influenzae.
(13) The size of KM of neuraminidase is similar in all chicken influenza virus strains their antigenic formula is suggested [A(GP6-H3N2)].
(14) The best understood fusion mechanism is that of influenza virus, for which sequences involved in pH-dependent fusion can be correlated with the crystallographic structure of the spike protein.
(15) In the last years an increase of neonatal infections due to Haemophilus influenzae had been reported.
(16) It has greater stability than cefaclor and greater activity against beta-lactamase-producing Haemophilus influenzae and Escherichia coli.
(17) A synthetic peptide comprising the C-terminal 24 amino acids of the heavy chain (HA1) of influenza virus hemagglutinin was constructed and examined for antigenic and immunogenic activity.
