(3) In three instances SAA levels increased during hospitalization while CRP levels did not.
(4) A 6.4 kilobase C4B-5'-specific Taq I fragment usually provided a reliable guide to the presence of a C4A deletion but unusually in one instance this fragment was found to be a marker of a functioning C4A gene.
(5) "Runners, for instance, need a high level of running economy, which comes from skill acquisition and putting in the miles," says Scrivener, "But they could effectively ease off the long runs and reduce the overall mileage by introducing Tabata training.
(6) Both hypodontia and hyperdontia are found in a number of well-defined genetic syndromes and in most instances are common characteristics of the disease.
(7) The opportunities for infection are often strong in areas of high population within a city – schools, for instance.
(8) Of these, 12 had radiation-induced neurologic complications which, in 5 instances, consisted of persisting, wholly or partially disabling paresis in the lower limbs.
(9) The decision of the editors to solicit a review for the Medical Progress series of this journal devoted to current concepts of the renal handling of salt and water is sound in that this important topic in kidney physiology has recently been the object of a number of new, exciting and, in some instances, quite unexpected insights into the mechanisms governing sodium excretion.
(10) We firmly believe that a systematic approach to the 12-lead ECG can provide information that can diagnose the difference between ventricular and supraventricular tachycardia, and in many instances diagnose the mechanism and site of origin of the supraventricular tachycardia.
(11) Other less common indications are some instances of aspiration pneumonia, septicemias due to B. fragilis, and actinomycoses.
(12) Tension in flexor tendons during wrist flexion may play a role in otherwise unexplained instances of the carpal tunnel syndrome.
(13) But most instances are more mundane: the majority of fraud cases in recent years have emerged from scientists either falsifying images – deliberately mislabelling scans and micrographs – or fabricating or altering their recorded data.
(14) The right side of the ventricular septum was affected in five instances.
(15) Women on the beat: how to get more female police officers around the world Read more Mortars were, for instance, used on 5 June when Afghan national army soldiers accidentally hit a wedding party on the outskirts of Ghazni, killing eight children.
(16) Our own experiences have shown that patients involved in studies with well designed protocols are better controlled and in most instances also better treated than patients treated outside such protocols.
(17) No instances of osteoradionecrosis occurred as a result of dental extraction with this conservative method.
(18) Therefore these suggested methods of choice may not in every instance be the most accurate of all indicators of nutritional status for a particular nutrient.
(19) The advantage of this in vivo method is the possibility to determine the thyroidal activity at various times after 131I-application (2 phase test) and by repeated 131I-applications under different conditions (diet, age, for instance).
(20) In each instance, dexamethasone was given at midnight and the plasma ACTH concentration was determined at 9:00 a.m. on the day before and after administration of the dexamethasone.
(1) On the Test Trial 2, a new object pair (e.g., BB vs. EF) was presented that instantiated either the relation shown on Trial 1 or the alternative relation.
(2) The second problem is the determination of the most probable, second most probable, third most probable, and so on sets of values of a particular set of variables (called the explanation set) given that certain variables are instantiated for particular values.
(3) While phonetics cannot inform phonology about the appropriateness of a particular underlying form, there should be some phonetic transparency between the underlying form and its ultimate phonetic instantiation.
(4) It took another 40 years for Turing's imagined game to become a reality, when in 1990 the American philanthropist Hugh Loebner founded the annual Loebner prize for artificial intelligence , "the first formal instantiation of the Turing test".
(5) It was assumed that items that maximally instantiated the rule were those farthest from the category boundary that separated small and large stimuli.
(6) We instantiated each type of error by providing detailed specific examples, and identified the consequences of each error.
(7) Every violent process that becomes concretized or becomes the norm constitutes an interference in the vital human process in its various instantiations: it threatens life, alters health, produces disease, and presents death as a reality or an immediate possibility.
(8) Ideals and frequency of instantiation predicted graded structure in both category types to sizeable and equal extents.
(9) Although they successfully matched single objects, they were unable to match object pairs instantiating the same relation (e.g., if AA then match BB; if CD then match EF).
(10) The results could not be predicted solely on the basis of the degree to which the rules were instantiated.
(11) The results suggested that there weren't the instantiated representations of categories.
(12) Perceptual taking of an ecological property is always in one or another of the latter's instantiations, and perceptual taking of an ecological entity or event is always with properties.
(13) Object choices and searching behavior revealed that the sea lion processed information about the relation of size as well as about the specific characteristics of the sizes of spheres that instantiated the relations.
(14) We develop a neural network model that instantiates color constancy and color categorization in a single unified framework.
(15) What has to be demonstrated by such explanations is how an information-processing capacity is actually instantiated in a system.
(16) It was assumed that items that maximally instantiated the rule were those with both positive values (x and y).
(17) The first problem is the determination of the conditional probabilities of the values of remaining propositional variables in the network given that certain variables are instantiated for particular values.
(18) Two studies were conducted using severely and profoundly deaf high school students to determine their ability to instantiate particular exemplars of general nouns and to use those instantiations as retrieval cues.
(19) Instantiation of general terms in discourse requires inference from general world knowledge and use of linguistic context to particularize meaning.
(20) An instantiation of the model accounts for the major features of the data.
