(8) However, in human lungs, lysozyme was identified in serous submucosal glands but not in alveolar type II pneumocytes.
(9) The amount of the fluid flowing off the vessels, perfusate penetration into the intestinal lumen and its transudation through the serous membrane were determined.
(10) The terminology of the pericardial sinuses and recesses has been inconsistent, and the authors propose a nomenclature for standardizing the names of the recesses of the serous pericardium.
(11) Flow cytometric analysis of DNA content and ras p21 expression were studied in paraffin-embedded normal ovary (NO, n = 10), serous cystadenoma (SA, n = 11), serous tumors of low malignant potential (LMP, n = 13), and papillary serous cystadenocarcinoma (SCa, n = 7).
(12) Two previously unnamed recesses within the serous pericardium are defined and named, one the inferior aortic recess of the transverse sinus and the other, the right pulmonic recess of the transverse sinus.
(13) In hypertension, all the components are affected in the microcirculatory bed of serous membranes: arterioles, precapillaries, capillaries, postcapillaries, venules, lymph capillaries and postcapillaries.
(14) Serous granules were stained by toluidine blue, or by hematoxylin and eosin (H and E), but showed little or no reaction with periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) or Alcian blue.
(15) Chronic serous otitis media was a frequent finding but deafness was rarely profound.
(16) We created serous retinal detachment in the cat eye by means of photodynamic injury produced by activation of intravascular rose bengal using filtered, focused light (550 nm).
(17) Uterine papillary serous carcinoma (UPSC), FIGO grade 3, nuclear grade 3, and age were the major independent prognostic factors.
(18) A patient with a strongly positive family history underwent a prophylactic oophorectomy and, 5 years later, developed a primary peritoneal papillary serous adenocarcinoma.
(19) Ophthalmoscopic examination disclosed a single, white, elevated mass lesion surrounded by serous retinal detachment located in the upper part of the macula of the right eye.
(20) These cells express serous cell phenotype as reflected by ultrastructure, histochemistry, and lysozyme activity.
(n.) The watery portion of certain animal fluids, as blood, milk, etc.
(n.) A thin watery fluid, containing more or less albumin, secreted by the serous membranes of the body, such as the pericardium and peritoneum.
(1) We studied further the serum with the highest titer.
(2) Serum levels of both dihydralazine and metabolites were very low and particularly below the detection limit.
(3) Since fingernail creatinine (Ncr) reflects serum creatinine (Scr) at the time of nail formation, it has been suggested that Ncr level might represent that of Scr around 4 months previously.
(4) The significance of minor increases in the serum creatinine level must be recognized, so that modifications of drug therapy can be made and correction of possibly life-threatening electrolyte imbalances can be undertaken.
(5) Trifluoroacetylated rabbit serum albumin was 5 times more reactive with these antibodies and thus more antigenic than the homologous acetylated moiety confirming the importance of the trifluoromethyl moiety as an epitope in the immunogen in vivo.
(6) Serum samples from 23 families, including a total of 48 affected children, were tested for a set of "classical markers."
(7) The statistical T value calculated for the LP-TAE group showed that the administration of LP, the tumor size, intrahepatic metastasis, portal vein infiltration, and serum total bilirubin and alpha-fetoprotein levels significantly (P < 0.01) affected the patients' survival.
(8) Patient or fetal cord serum is commonly used as a protein supplement to culture media used in in-vitro fertilization (IVF).
(9) The serum concentration of hyaluronan (HYA) was determined in 59 patients with various myeloproliferative disorders, including 33 patients with idiopathic myelofibrosis.
(10) These observations were confirmed by the killing curves in pooled serum obtained at peak and trough levels.
(11) Serum complement studies revealed decreased levels of C4, properdin, and C3.
(12) The agent present in the serum which causes dissolution of the fibrin clot was isolated and identified as pepsinogen.
(13) The concentrations of five normally occurring protease inhibitors in serum and synovial fluid were compared in patients with rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthrosis, and normal controls.
(14) In this review, we demonstrate that serum creatinine does not provide an adequate estimate of glomerular filtration rate (GFR), and contrary to recent teachings, that the slope of the reciprocal of serum creatinine vs time does not permit an accurate assessment of the rate of progression of renal disease.
(15) Zinc in plasma and urine and serum albumin and alpha 2-macroglobulin were measured in 48 patients with burns.
(16) In the clinical trials in which there was complete substitution of fat-modified ruminant foods for conventional ruminant products the fall in serum cholesterol was approximately 10%.
(17) The increase in red blood cell mass was associated with an elevation in erythropoietic stimulatory activity in serum, pleural fluid, and tumor-cyst fluid as determined by the exhypoxic polycythemic mouse assay.
(18) Nicardipine lowered systolic and diastolic blood pressure to normal, plasma aldosterone was reduced and serum potassium levels were increased.
(19) As a group, the three mammalian proteins resemble bovine serum conglutinin and behave as lectins with rather broad sugar specificities directed at certain non-reducing terminal N-acetylglucosamine, mannose, glucose and fucose residues, but with subtle differences in fine specificities.
(20) We have measured the antibody specificities to the two polysaccharides in sera from asymptomatic group C meningococcal carriers and vaccinated adults by a new enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) procedure using methylated human serum albumin for coating the group C polysaccharide onto microtiter plates.
