We prospectively assessed the diagnostic value of pleural fluid complement levels (total, C3, C4) in 135 patients with pleural effusion of five main etiologies, using novel markers. Complement levels correlated with pleural levels of protein, amylase, and transuded fluids. On univariate analysis, CHF-related pleural effusions were associated with significantly lower ...

BACKGROUND: Ionic dialysance can provide accurate monitoring of dialysis dose during each hemodialysis session. Increasingly, hemodialysis machines incorporate devices that measure ionic dialysance, allowing the dialysis dose to be determined noninvasively in real time and in each session. Because Kt product was proposed as a measure of hemodialysis dose to ...

IL-6 and TNF-alpha are synthesized in white adipose tissue both by adipocytes and by the stroma-vascular fraction. They both are known to interfere with insulin signaling, reducing insulin sensitivity and lipid deposition. At a central level, IL-6 enhances sympathetic nervous system activity, thus enhancing lipolysis and reducing fat mass. During ...

The politics and aesthetics of nakedness was, for Victorians, both complex and slippery, the result of ambivalent nineteenth-century attitudes toward the unclothed body. This essay argues that such vexed attitudes about nudity and nakedness in Victorian Britain cannot fully be comprehended without reference to the experience of empire. Colonialism's seemingly ...

Recent discoveries on Palau are claimed to represent the remains of small-bodied humans that may display evidence insular size reduction. This claim has yet to be statistically validated Published postcranial specimens (n = 16) from Palau were assessed relative to recent small-bodied comparative samples. Resampling statistical approaches were employed to ...

We examine means for driving hydrothermal activity in extraterrestrial oceans on planets and satellites of less than one Earth mass, with implications for sustaining a low level of biological activity over geological timescales. Assuming ocean planets have olivine-dominated lithospheres, a model for cooling-induced thermal cracking shows how variation in planet ...

The mechanism controlling the body color of hatchlings was studied for the desert locust, Schistocerca gregaria. A pheromonal factor secreted by gregarious female adults into the foam plugs of egg pods has been suggested to cause darkening in their progeny. We re-examined the role of this maternal factor by washing ...

This paper reviews a series of my heat transfer studies of on the so-called "self-rewetting" fluids, in which the Marangoni effect due to concentration gradient and the thermocapillary flow cooperatively result in a strong liquid inflow at the nucleation sites in the course of boiling. First of all, the background ...

Body fluid is distributed among three major fluid spaces: plasma, interstitial fluid, and intracellular fluid. The distribution of fluid in each of these compartments is dramatically different in the fetus and newborn compared to the adult. In addition, the amniotic fluid that surrounds the fetus may also be considered an ...

Although a number of changes occur in ear, nose, throat during pregnancy, yet these changes are neglected because majority of these changes go away after the pregnancy is over. Almost every corner of ENT is effected during pregnancy e.g., ear, nose, larynx (voice), oesophagus, thyroid etc. This paper deals with ...
