(16) This resulted in a false-positive recall incidence greater than 92% owing to various additional factors which also influence T4 levels: thyroxine-binding-globulin deficiency, prematurity, and maternal drug ingestion.
(17) It is because of those brave people that we owe our lives to them.
(18) Two years later, the Guardian could point to reforms that owed much to what Ashley called his "bloody-mindedness" in five areas: non-disclosure of victims' names in rape cases; the rights of battered wives; the ending of fuel disconnections for elderly people; a royal commission on the legal profession; and civil liability for damages such as those due to thalidomide victims.
(19) The similarities in methods of intervention found in the work of investigators of very different theoretical persuasion raise the possibility that most treatment methods owe more to empirical clinical experience than to their presumed derivation from a theoretical model.
(20) "If there is some kind of contrived scheme or vehicle, ie it's obvious that the purpose of the scheme is to avoid paying VAT and it's taking advantage of a loophole and we consider that tax is actually owed on the scheme, rather than just being a case of sensible tax planning … we can make the judgment that this is not legitimate tax planning.

(1) It is quite interesting to analyse which gene of the virus determines the characteristics of the virus.
(2) The most successful dyes were phenocyanin TC, gallein, fluorone black, alizarin cyanin BB and alizarin blue S. Celestin blue B with an iron mordant is quite successful if properly handled to prevent gelling of solutions.
(3) Mike Ashley told Lee Charnley that maybe he could talk with me last week but I said: ‘Listen, we cannot say too much so I think it’s better if we wait.’ The message Mike Ashley is sending is quite positive, but it was better to talk after we play Tottenham.” Benítez will ask Ashley for written assurances over his transfer budget, control of transfers and other spheres of club autonomy, but can also reassure the owner that the prospect of managing in the second tier holds few fears for him.

(10) The authors present a quite unused technique that helps to simplify the cavity preparation in Operative Dentistry.
(11) Interexaminer reliability studies indicate that a standard method of motion palpation is quite feasible and accurate.
(12) Our findings: (1) both forms, LC1 and LC3, migrate in the two species with rather similar electrophoretic constants (both in terms of pI and Mr); (2) the LC2 forms of rabbit and humans exhibit the same Mr but quite different pI values, the rabbit forms being more acidic; (3) the chain LC2Sb is resolved into two spots in both rabbit and humans.
(13) The tunes weren't quite as easy and lush as they had been, and hints of dissonance crept in.
(14) 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.
