Field measurements of MS (volume susceptibility) are typically reported in dimensionless units (e.g., [10.sup.-5] (SI units)), whereas laboratory measurements of mass specific susceptibility are reported in mass-based units (e.g., [10.sup.-8] x [m.sup.3] [kg.sup.-1] (SI units)), equivalent to volume susceptibility divided by density [4].
Celiac disease is a well-recognized auto-immune enteropathy involving genetic factors, and is associated in almost all patients to specific susceptibility alleles encoding human leucocyte antigen (HLA) histocompatibility antigens, the corresponding genes being localized at the major histocompatibility region in the short arm of chromosome 6.
This property makes them important in treatment regimens, and they should be used in consultation with the specific susceptibility profile.
Thus we propose that our patient had an abnormal specific susceptibility to HPV, which led him to a diffuse and persistent skin infection by common warts.
Explanations put forth by the authors about the beneficial effect of dietary intervention in IBD were attributable to the possible contributing factors for the condition, including environmental influences that alter the microbiome and trigger specific susceptibility pro-inflammatory genes within the mucosa.
Until specific susceptibility genes are discovered, the identification of environmental risk factors that primarily affect susceptible subgroups may require us to refine ASD subgroup classifications using specific phenotypic patterns or the clustering of ASDs in families.
Specific susceptibility to mucormycosis in murine diabetes and bronchoalveolar macrophage defense against Rhizopus.
Antibiotic susceptibilities were determined by using disk diffusion and the VITEK2 system (bioMerieux, Marcy l'Etoile, France) with specific susceptibility test cards.
