(Enhanced Connectivity Facilities) IBM software that allows DOS PCs to query and download data from mainframes and issue mainframe commands. It also allows printer output to be directed from the PC to the mainframe. It uses the SRPI interface and resides in the PC (client) and mainframe (server). Applications issue SRPI commands to request services.

Using a scoring system, oncologists, breast cancer surgeons and other healthcare providers can determine in seconds the amount of resistance from one point to the other and identify the onset of extracellular fluid accumulation, which may assist in the identification of lymphedema at an earlier point in time.

The mechanism is similar to the way neurons communicate with other cells, and contrasts the standard understanding that non-neuronal cells "basically spit out signaling proteins into extracellular fluid and hope they find the right target," said senior investigator Thomas B.
Data from this study evidenced a disparity between higher amounts of ATP detected in the extracellular fluid released from TNBS-treated ileal preparations and deficits in the adenosine levels measured in the same samples, both under baseline conditions and after electrical stimulation.
To obtain total soluble leaf extract (TP) and soluble postextracellular fluid extract (PEF), the leaf was homogenized in 5 mM Hepes/NaOH, pH 6.3, containing 50 mM NaCl [21,28] before and after collection of extracellular fluid, respectively, and centrifuged at 10,000 xg for 20 min at 4[degrees]C to collect the soluble fraction.
