() Alt. of Mouldy
(1) Most intriguing of all is the potential for the mould to "expect" changes in its environment.
(2) The median exposure of total dust was well below the Swedish threshold value, and the exposure of mould and bacteria was also low.
(3) We therefore used two different tRNA genes from the cellular slime mould Dictyostelium discoideum which are efficiently transcribed and processed in vivo in yeast.
(4) A mould which was isolated from a solution of paracetamol was identified as a Penicillium species and was found to possess the ability to utilise a series of substituted acetanilides, including paracetamol (4-hydroxyacetanilide), phenacetin (4-ethoxyacetanilide) and metacetamol (3-hydroxyacetanilide) as sole carbon sources for growth.
(5) Studies of substrate and cosubstrate specificities of mould alpha-glucosidases suggest that the binding site of the active center of mould alpha-glucosidase consits of two subsites--glucone and aglucone ones.
(6) Patients are instructed to wear the mould for 6 months, removing it only to clean or for a change of size.
(7) In all patients except one, specific IgE-antibodies to the respective mould were demonstrated by immunoblotting.
(8) In addition to mesophilic species, xerophilic moulds appear to be common, often developing together with mites.
(9) These antisera were characterized by immunofluorescence and by indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for their reactivity with 44 strains of moulds.
(10) It is recommended to apply cast fillings with a replacement of the occlusive area as quickly after the wax mould as possible because of the diminished gap due to the motion of the teeth.
(11) Agreement between RAST and provocation tests was 79% for the house dust mite Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, 71.5% for cat and dog epithelium, 70% for the Penicillium mould, 63% for Alternaria, 55% for Hormodendron and Aspergillus and only 53% for house dust.
(12) An isotope dilution technique has been used to analyze the synthesis of metabolically stable nucleic acids during the mitotic cycle in surface plasmodia of the slime mould Physarum polycephalum.
(13) Reactions to moulds were observed in 9% of the patients.
(14) The analyses of more than 200 samples of various foods of plant origin showed that patulin was contained in 36% of the fresh and canned fruits infested with mould, and in 7% of the vegetables.
(15) Other kids were out there playing at whatever; I was off making something blow up and filming it, or making a mould of my sister's head using alginating plaster.
(16) This carnival of camera phones, caressing and even groping (the waxen men do have "moulds" where their private parts would be so that their trousers hang properly, but no, nothing too realistic down there) is the celebrity world were we in control.
(17) A soluble cytochrome was isolated and purified from the slime mould Physarum polycephalum and identified as cytochrome c by room-temperature and low-temperature (77 degrees K) difference spectroscopy.
(18) The use of fibrin as a resorbable biological adhesive permits moulding of HA granules into individually shaped implants.
(19) Under improvement of technology of the cobalt-base-alloy "Gisadent KCM 83", the influence of different mould temperatures to the alloy surface was inquired with help of comparism.
(20) As related to the control lot, the addition of these acid results, in the first two doses, in a decrease and slowing-down of the growth of the mould and the production of its two mycotoxins (patulin and byssochlamic acid).
(a.) Forming a mold.
(1) The results of the use of Proplast, a new alloplastic material, in experimental middle ear surgery are described.
(2) Higher rates are reported by individual clinicians, and our recent in vitro wear tests of Proplast II Teflon interpositional implants suggest an in vivo service life of only 3 years.
(3) Proplast was implanted in 15 cases of orbital reconstruction.
(4) In the worst case scenario, if condylar resorption is indicative of a worn Proplast II Teflon interpositional implant, then 364 (54%) of the 680 implants may fail.
(5) A Teflon sled, Proplast malar implant and ptosis correction acheived the desired results.
(6) Successful clinical applications since early 1970 have occurred with the use of temporomandibular condylar prosthesis and endosseous blade-vent implants coated with porous proplast.
(7) Frontal obliteration with Proplast may be clinically superior to osteoplasty with any other presently available exogenous material or with osteoneogenesis alone, and may even obviate the few complications encountered with adipose implants.
(8) Change almost never occurred in the host bone cortex, but slight swelling occurred in the periosteum in contact with the Proplast after 1 week.
(9) This retrospective study of 62 patients compared three alloplastic materials used in chin augmentation: Proplast I (PI), Proplast II (PII), and porous block hydroxyapatite (PBHA).
(10) We report our experiences with 30 Proplast implants in the region of the jaws and face.
(11) Long-term stability of these implants, due to the ingrowth of tissue into Proplast, appears to be assured.
(12) We studied the radiologic and pathologic changes in 30 patients (34 joints) in which there were locally destructive bone and soft-tissue complications associated with previously inserted permanent temporomandibular joint (TMJ) Proplast-Teflon implants.
(13) Proplast fills with bony tissue when implanted in the body and shows the same triple association.
(14) No differences in new bone volume or host bone changes were noticed between the Proplast I and Proplast II groups.
(15) We concluded that the Proplast was more stable than NPHA implants, but the NPHA produced less inflammatory cell and giant cell reaction.
(16) We are currently investigating the potential of Proplast in keratoprosthesis.
(17) Four types of synthetic materials were implanted in 54 rabbits: Supramid, Proplast, Plasti-Pore, and Silastic.
(18) Proplast reconstruction of iliac crest defects resulting from bone grafts taken for anterior lumbar and cervical fusions is described.
(19) We describe our technique of evaluation and treatment of this condition using a custom-carved piece of material made from a woven combination of Teflon and organic fibers (Proplast).
(20) (2) It follows that if magnets are properly coated and good surgical techniques are used, Proplast can be an effective sealant.
