(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) The fluctuations in [Ca2+]i measured with fura-2 were synchronized among the population of cells observed and were sensitive to extracellular Ca2+ concentration ([Ca2+]o).
(2) Histone mRNA, labeled with 32P or 3H-methionine during the S phase of partially synchronized HeLa cells, was isolated from the polyribosomes and purified as a "9S" component by sucrose gradient sedimentation.
(3) An experimental model was established in the ewe allowing one to predict with accuracy an antral follicle that coincidentally would either undergo ovulation (6-8 mm diameter) or atresia (3-4 mm diameter) following synchronization of luteal regression and the onset of the gonadotropin surge.
(4) By means of rapid planar Hill type antimony-bismuth thermophiles the initial heat liberated by papillary muscles was measured synchronously with developed tension for control (C), pressure-overload (GOP), and hypothyrotic (PTU) rat myocardium (chronic experiments) and after application of 10(-6) M isoproterenol or 200 10(-6) M UDCG-115.
(5) As the frequency of the stimulus bursts was progressively changed, the sinoatrial (SA) nodal pacemaker cells became synchronized with the repetitive bursts of stimuli over a certain range of burst frequencies.
(6) The analysis suggests that the wave-peak discharge results from synchronous alternation of depolarization potentials and long periods of postsynaptic inhibition in most of the cortical elements.
(7) A synchronization of plasma prorenin with the other hormones was seen both before, as previously reported, and during enalapril treatment.
(8) 77 per cent of the synchronous tumors were located in the left colon.
(9) The spore germination was synchronized by selection of the spores of the definite size and maintenance at a temperature of 0 degrees.
(10) The average vlaues of the correlation coefficients were found to increase from arousal through slow synchronized sleep (S sleep), reaching the highest value in REM sleep.
(11) A review of 90 patients presenting in Leeds over the period 1976-80 with synchronous hepatic metastases from colorectal cancer has been undertaken.
(12) A system for obtaining synchronous germination of mitospores is described.
(13) Treatment with 0.3 microM or 0.7 microM BPDE-I, which are doses that interfere with DNA synthesis in operating replicons in asynchronous cells, also inhibited the growth of nascent DNA strands in synchronized cells by 22 and 64%, respectively.
(14) Electrographically, the motor phenomena corresponded with the occurrence of periodic synchronous discharges (PSD) (in one-to-one manner).
(15) A synchronic increase and decrease of IgG-1 serum levels and indirect fluorescent antibody titres were observed during the course of the infection.
(16) Rabbit morulae and blastocysts were cultured in conventional culture media [Ham's F10 or BSM II supplemented with bovine serum albumin (BSA) or serum] or in Ham's medium supplemented with synchronous or asynchronous uterine flushings, mostly for 2 days, and afterwards investigated by light and electron microscopy and by autoradiography.
(17) However, a region containing pixels that are perfectly synchronous on average would still yield a finite distribution of calculated Fourier coefficients due to the propagation of stochastic pixel noise into the calculated values.
(18) The uterine osteosarcoma is the seventh case reported in the world, while it is the second case of synchronous triple primary tumors of the upper female genital tract.
(19) A consequence of periodic clusters of cellular bursts was the widespread occurrence of periodic synchronized synaptic potentials, as have been observed in hippocampal slices and human temporal neocortical slices.
(20) This syncitium-like arrangement is interpreted as the morphological counterpart of a possibly synchronized function of these cells.
