(14) Three patients died from non-hepatic causes and another has received liver transplantation.
(15) Malondialdehyde was undetectable in cerebrospinal fluid after subarachnoid placement of agarose alone, although it was present in similar amounts in all groups that received subarachnoid placement of OxyHb.
(16) We investigated the incidence of skin cancer among patients who received high doses of PUVA to see whether such incidence increased.
(17) From 1978 to 1983 in the Orthopedic University Clinic (Oskar-Helene-Heim, Berlin) 75 children with fractures of the distal humerus received medical treatment.
(18) A Swedish news agency said it had received an email warning before the blasts in which a threat was made against Sweden's population, linked to the country's military presence in Afghanistan and the five-year-old case of caricatures of the prophet Muhammad by Swedish artist Lars Vilks.
(19) Data were collected on a sample of 131 women receiving treatment for gynecological cancer.
(20) In 2 patients who had received cadaveric renal allograft, ureteral obstruction was detected six and one-half and five and one-half years after transplantation.
(n.) A receiver; the person or thing that receives; one to whom, or that to which, anything is given or communicated; specifically, the receiver of a still.
(a.) Receiving; receptive.
(1) In addition, this pretreatment protocol did not modify the recipient immune response against B-lymphocyte alloantigens which developed in unsuccessful transplants.
(2) Although lorazepam and haloperidol produced an equivalent mean decrease in aggression, significantly more subjects who received lorazepam had a greater decrease in aggression ratings than haloperidol recipients; this effect was independent of sedation.
(3) We studied 15 renal transplant recipients for evidence of tubular dysfunction.
(4) Grafts of intermediate thickness (M III) showed excellent clinical healing of the donor and the recipient site.
(5) Analysis of risk factors and use of criteria for categorizing severity of disease can be helpful in designing new treatments, identifying potential recipients of such agents, and evaluating outcome of therapy.
(6) We have previously shown that, with moderate hydration (2.5 L) of the recipient, together with rapid infusion of 250 ml of mannitol 20% just before clamp removal, the incidence of ARF decreased to below 10%.
(7) A case of multiple, subcutaneous, neutrophilic abscesses due to T. rubrum in an immunosuppressed renal allograft recipient is described.
(8) Britain has been the Gates foundation’s second largest recipient, receiving 25 grants worth $156m since 2003.
(9) Skin allografts survived longer on ALS-treated, complement-deficient (C5 negative) recipients than on ALS-treated, complement-competent (C5 positive) recipients.
(10) Previous studies have shown that immunosuppressive therapy permits the growth and spread of inadvertently transplanted malignant cells in man, and, in addition, is associated with a 5 to 6% incidence of de novo cancers in organ homograft recipients who were apparently free of cancer before and at the time of transplantation.
(11) Donor organs were anastomosed parallel to the recipient's heart and right lung, and the superior vena cava inflow was directed into the transplanted heart-left lung block after ligation of the recipient's superior vena cava proximal to the caval anastomosis.
(12) The immunogenicity of the polyvalent pneumococcal vaccine was studied in renal allograft recipients and dialysis patients.
(13) Because haptenated cells can induce immunity if injected subcutaneously or into cyclophosphamide-pretreated recipients (thereby avoiding the induction of suppressor cells), we suggest that the activation of contrasuppressor cells by antigen-antibody complexes overrides suppressive influences in the host, allowing immunity to become dominant.
(14) Our results indicate that in recipients of bioprosthetic valves, careful follow-up with closer surveillance of valve and cardiac function and earlier prosthetic replacement might contribute to reducing the risk of reoperation.
(15) Last year, statistics showed that 95% of recipients felt more confident after getting a hearing dog.
(16) The pattern of innervation following transplantation indicates that, in repopulating dopamine-deficient cortical areas of recipient weaver mutants, graft-derived dopamine fibres show a preference for those layers which are normally invested by dopamine afferents.
(17) Psychological risk factors predicted donor candidates' decisions to participate and their compliance but were not predictive (within the group that completed a cycle) of donor satisfaction as follow-up or recipient pregnancy.
(18) Two cases of suicide by related kidney donors following graft rejection and the death of the recipients are reported.
(19) This was true in separate experiments, involving two mammary carcinomata and a 3-methylcholanthrene induced sarcoma, wherein the period of tumour growth in the parent line donor and F(1) hybrid recipient was varied.
(20) The potentiated effects are reduced if the recipients are given nonadherent spleen cells.
