(1) With the cultures of mycoplasmas obtained from the eyes of human patients suffering from sympathetic ophthalmia, it was possible to produce the same symptoms in chickens as were described by the author in 1950 in sympathizing and sympathized human eyes, namely: torpid uveitis and papillitis, which dragged on for months, and affected not only the inoculated right eye, but also, after 3 weeks and more, the untouched left eye.
(2) In the absence of the effect, two latter variants of ulcers should be treated in the same way as primary torpid ulcers.
(3) Torpid facial ulcerations may occur as a result of lesions involving the trigeminal fibers.
(4) However, the slope of the relationship between C' and BM is almost 4-fold greater for normothermic than for torpid animals.
(5) The installation promotes acceleration of the correct diagnosis under the torpid and chronic inflammatory processes in the urethra.
(6) Obese mice were also torpid during the dark phase, whereas lean mice were active and had a normal body temperature at this time.
(7) The torpid type was significantly more frequently observed in patients with subclinical (asymptomatic) hymenolepiasis course than in patients with its clinical manifestation.
(8) The amount of secretion, hydrochloric acid, pepsin, and gastromuco-protein were decreased, the secretory effect being more slowly developed, the torpid secretion type being observed.
(9) On the whole, MBF is a benign condition; however, torpid forms are increasingly reported.
(10) The authors examined 120 patients with schizophrenia (torpid and paroxysmal-progressive) whose disease at different stages of its course was complicated by exogenous impacts (head trauma in 66 cases, neuroinfection in 15, intoxication in 16 and vascular brain disease in 23).
(11) All hormone levels were lower in torpid toads, which were found underground 1 week before the start of the breeding migration, than in active toads in the breeding season, although the levels were higher than those in the other months.
(12) On the basis of these findings a conclusion can be drawn that most of the cases of schizophrenia manifested in old age by the syndrome of involutional paranoid belong to a group of diseases with an early onset, prolonged torpid or latent course, and with increased progression of the process in advanced age.
(13) Because all species underwent seasonal changes in their patterns of hibernation, animals were compared in mid-winter when the duration of euthermic intervals was short and relatively constant and when the duration of torpid intervals was at its longest.
(14) The clinical picture was rather torpid, with a body temperature below 38 degrees C in 42 p. 100 of the cases, which delayed the diagnosis: the mean time interval between onset and diagnosis was 20 days.
(15) The authors consider it desirable that the following forms of this condition be singled out as a nosologic entity: (1) atopic neurodermatitis, a hereditary disease with characteristic immunologic shifts; (2) chronic diffuse neurodermatitis of adults, a disease developed by subjects without atopic anamnesis, characterized by a torpid course; remissions and exacerbations are not season-associated; (3) chronic local neurodermatitis, a disease with a typical morphology in foci of involvement, with prolonged remissions following intensive local therapy.
(16) The torpid process of chronic bronchitis, the two-phase pattern of the disease, dyspnea at 3-4 month intervals, intermissions, edema and failure of complex therapy with antibiotics and cardiac glycosides provided a tentative diagnosis of Legionella pneumonia with affection of the myocardium.
(17) Winter outdoor animals experiencing normal torpidity, however, exhibited reduced ATPase activity by about 50%.
(18) The patients with the left lesion were more characterized by psychastheniclike features, motor inhibition with marked rigidity and emotive poverty, torpidity of affects, hypochondriasis, readiness for overvalued formations.
(19) Herpes type infections in AIDS patients tend to be more severe, generalized and have a torpid evolution.
(20) Body contact with euthermic nestmates warmed torpid marmots passively.
(n.) Loss of motion, or of the motion; a state of inactivity with partial or total insensibility; numbness.
(n.) Dullness; sluggishness; inactivity; as, a torpor of the mental faculties.
(1) After arousal from torpor, within 2 h dendrites completely restored their structure.
(2) Bats have maximum life spans a minimum of 3 times those of nonflying eutherians--a trend resulting from neither low basal metabolic rate, the ability to enter torpor, nor large relative brain size.
(3) Three years of frustration at the torpor he found at the centre of the party spills out.
(4) Experiments with temperature and torpor and castration did not alter the annual did not alter the rhythm...
(5) Dietary lipids strongly influence the pattern of torpor and the body lipid composition of mammalian hibernators.
(6) Testosterone and 5 alpha-dihydrotestosterone administration totally inhibited daily torpor in hamsters which were exposed to short days.
(7) At 10 wk of age, group-housed glutamate-obese mice exhibited nocturnal and early diurnal torpor, i.e., they thermoregulated at a lower than normal body temperature.
(8) Estradiol inhibited torpor to a greater extent in intact and ovariectomized female hamsters hibernating in long days than those in short days, suggesting an effect of photoperiod on responsiveness to estradiol.
(9) Selective feeding and incorporation of high amounts of unsaturated fatty acids into tissues and cell membranes may be an important preparation for hibernation of E. amoenus which lowers its body temperature during torpor to about 0 degrees C.
(10) Like many mammalian heterotherms, the big brown bat, Eptesicus fuscus, breathes intermittently during torpor.
(11) Just as Everton’s bid to snap out of their torpor was gaining momentum, however, it was curtailed by a third United goal that killed the contest.
(12) Water independence is achieved through efficient renal function while low rates of energy usage and torpor are further effective in reducing overall water requirements.
(13) The object of the present study was to investigate whether these diet-induced physiological and biochemical changes also occur in species that show shallow, daily torpor.
(14) Nevertheless, decreased testosterone secretion alone is not a sufficient condition for induction of daily torpor, since torpor was rarely observed in hamsters exposed to long days, even after castration.
(15) Hormone levels were generally lower in hibernators sampled during bouts of torpor than during bouts of spontaneous arousal from torpor.
(16) It is concluded that there is an inverse temperature effect that minimizes fuel usage during torpor.
(17) In addition, carbohydrate levels are significantly lower, whereas fatty acid and ketone levels are significantly higher during torpor.
(18) After the last (terminal) arousal from torpor, T levels were moderately elevated for 4 wk and maximal for the next 6 wk before they returned to basal values.
(19) The durations of the intervals of torpor and euthermia during mammalian hibernation were found to be dependent on body mass.
(20) Castration influenced certain aspects of the daily torpor display.
