High levels of acute-phase reactants have been measured in asymptomatic individuals with heterozygous MEFV mutations, and inflammation was observed even during the asymptomatic phase in such individuals (6,10-13).
Because healthy heterozygotes for MEFV mutations have higher than normal acute-phase reactant levels, and many FMF patients continue to have subclinical inflammation during attack-free periods.
Indoor concentration, distribution, and residence time are main aspects to describe the characteristics of both reactants and reaction products.
From the above analysis presented in Table 1, it is clear that none of the reported techniques can be considered an industrial technique due to the fact that the industry cannot accept results of experiments in which the quantity of reactants is in "mmole" range.
One of them is the changeable reaction speed, which depends on the reactants concentration and the in-reactor temperature.
In one case, they produce bubbles loaded with one of the two reactants, sodium sulphide or cadmium chloride.
It is the levels and the localized nature of the energy dissipation that create a uniform mixture of the reactants in the nanometer level.
The batch distillation was run because the boiling point of water was much lower than those of reactants and other products (AA, BD, HBA and BDA).
