Reagents--For PZA susceptibility
the reagents were supplied by Becton Dickinson Diagnostic Instrument Systems, Sparks, USA.
Changes in immune function during pregnancy alter a pregnant woman's susceptibility
to and severity of certain infectious diseases.
What can we learn about genetic susceptibility
and asthma in older adults by studying occupational settings?
Participants who were exposed to the high threat message reported a greater level of susceptibility
to skin cancer (M = 5.
In our mid-South community, invasive pneumococcal isolates commonly demonstrate reduced susceptibility
to penicillin and cefotaxime.
The argument is largely demographic, built around the notion of susceptibility
Of those who could be tested, 78% had reduced susceptibility
to at least one antiretroviral.
1] Marsh found that ten out of 11 gene candidates for susceptibility
to asthma were unique to only one racial or ethnic group.
Meanwhile, scientists suspect that SNPs in another gene, PPAR-gamma, may also hike diabetes susceptibility
(SN: 9/9/00, p.
Another phenomenon that has generated a great deal of interest is the opposite case, where some virus strains exhibit increased susceptibility
to NNRTIs compared with wild-type virus, often termed hypersusceptibility.
The gene-mapping studies done so far suggest that several autoimmune diseases share the same "candidate gene", although each particular disease almost certainly has other genes that are responsible for that susceptibility
Studies seeking to identify the genetic basis of manic-depressive disorder indicate that susceptibility
stems from multiple genes.
