(v. i.) To become covered with a scab; as, the wound scabbed over.
(1) In this patient's farm, the disease was present for the first time and affected only 2-month old lambs in the form of numerous papulo-pustules located on the lips and later covered by hard and thick scabs.
(2) The effect of an experimental polyetherurethane (PEU) wound covering with a high vapor permeability was compared with an occlusive wound covering (OpSite covering) and air exposure with respect to the rate of reepithelialization, eventual epidermal thickness, and scab thickness in 122 partial-thickness wounds in guinea pigs.
(3) We cannot rule out, however, that the recombinant human growth hormone affected the quality of the scab in full-thickness wounds and thereby only appeared to alter the wound-healing process.
(4) One protein (SCAB 3), released on demineralization of bone with 0.5 M EDTA, appears to represent the alpha 1 pN-propeptide that is normally released during proteolytic processing of type I procollagen.
(5) Treatment-related changes in the skin indicative of irritation (scaling, scabbing, hyperkeratosis, hyperplasia) were found in all 2-EHA-treated groups.
(6) Scabs which had been placed in a disinfecting apparatus (Vacudes 4000) filled with mattrasses consistently proved to be free of infectious vaccinia viruses in each of the chosen programs.
(7) The concepts of "artificial digestion" and "artificial scab" are introduced.
(8) As sheep scab is a notifiable disease in South Africa, it was not possible to include an untreated control group.
(9) The end of new lesion formation, scabbing, and the healing of lesions were all superior in patients treated with 10(5) U to those treated with 10(7) U interferon.
(10) The time to last vesicle formation, time to total scabbing, and time to total healing were measured until complete resolution of the exanthem.
(11) Scabs are suspended in buffer solution and an enriched core suspension is obtained after treatment with detergent, quelants and centrifugation.
(12) Histopathologically, necrosis, scabbing, cell infiltration and thickening of the epidermis were noted at the site of application in the 4.0% BCA group.
(13) Surveys of vertical frozen skin sections from lesions of sheep inoculated with Psoroptes ovis revealed new aspects of scab histopathology, particularly lipid layers adherent to epidermis forming beneath dermal vesicles.
(14) It is necessary to distinguish by differential diagnostics: swine pox, parakeratosis of swine, lesions of impetigo contagiosa suum, pustular dermatitis and scab of swine, from rarely occurring skin diseases of swine hypotrichosis cystica suis and demodicosis of swine.
(15) Consequently, their medial edges did not fuse but rather underwent embryonic would healing with re-epithelialisation (which often formed needle track invaginations), but no signs of inflammation or scar or scab tissue formation.
(16) It could be confirmed that the usual terminal disinfection with formaldehyde vapor was unable to completely disinfect the scabs.
(17) By day 7 collagenase concentrations approached the low concentrations of normal skin when epithelialization was complete and the scab rejected.
(18) alopecia, necrosis of the ear and scab formation, were completely inhibited by 1,25-D3 therapy.
(19) I don't know what else she'd already had done by 2007, but I can see incisions in the creases where her ears and cheeks meet that look so fresh, they still have tiny lines of scab.
(20) It became really like a scab he could pick when the economy cratered in the mid-1980s and a lot of people fell out of work,” Powell continued.
