  • doses
  • The administration of higher doses (e.g. 9,000 Units per kg) may be considered in the event that the patient does not respond to the initial 6,000 Units per kg dose. (drugs.com)

  • vaccine

  • method
  • To enable comparison between years, most samples were requested through game management units by using the same method as in 2010, which had been designed for prevalence studies (random sampling). (cdc.gov)
  • Blood glucose measurement in patients receiving VIGIV must be done with a glucose-specific method (monitor and test strips) to avoid interference by maltose contained in VIGIV. (drugs.com)
  • Glucose dehydrogenase pyrroloquinolinequinone (GDH-PQQ) or glucose-dye-oxidoreductase method (monitor and test strips) must not be used for blood glucose testing in patients receiving VIGIV, since maltose in IGIV products has been shown to give falsely high blood glucose levels in these testing systems.

  • methods
  • METHODS To test the accuracy of the SAFE instrument for measuring the visual input from the two eyes, colour rivalry suppression was measured in six normal subjects. (bmj.com)
  • vaccination
  • Rapid diagnosis of rabies can help initiate prompt infection control and public health measures, obviate the need for unnecessary treatment/medical tests, and assist in timely administration of pre- or postexposure prophylactic vaccination to family members and medical staff. (hindawi.com)
  • samples
  • Furthermore, given the focal nature of TBE occurrence ( 5 ), specific game management units were asked during the year to supply extra samples (purposive sampling 48 samples), which were administered separately. (cdc.gov)
  • DGA is also performed on samples drawn during factory heat runs (and sometimes during factory electrical testing) to monitor the integrity of newly manufactured units. (sdmyers.com)
  • blood
  • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends that blood collection agencies perform WNV nucleic acid testing (NAT) year-round on all blood donations, either in minipools of six or 16 donations (MP-NAT) or as individual donations (ID-NAT) ( 2 ). (cdc.gov)
  • The patient had received allogenic, leukoreduced, irradiated blood products during hospital days 13-30, including 6 units of red blood cells, 2 units of platelets, and 2 units of fresh frozen plasma. (cdc.gov)
  • He received 2 additional units each of red blood cells and platelets on day 44. (cdc.gov)
  • activity
  • Supernatant was harvested, and the pseudovirions were titrated by infection of equine dermal cells and quantification of luciferase activity, as measured in relative light units. (wsu.edu)
  • To investigate whether these NGSs are associated with re-emergence of H3N2 within the subtype, we tested the effect of amino acid substitutions on neutralizing activity by using the antisera raised against H3N2 strains with or without additional NGSs. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The results indicated that amino acid substitution at residue 144 significantly affected neutralization activity, acting as an escape mutation. (biomedcentral.com)
  • sample
  • however, the sample was not tested for WNV. (cdc.gov)
  • Greater consideration of population age structure and cohort representation, serological test suitability and standardized sample collection protocols can ensure that reliable data are obtained for downstream modeling applications to characterize, and evaluate interventions for, wildlife disease systems.

  • Therefore
  • Please be aware that SNTs are cell-based biological tests requiring several days' incubation, therefore turnaround time is longer than for our other tests. (moredun.org.uk)

  • Given the ubiquitous use of serology as a tool for surveillance and epidemiological modeling of wildlife diseases, it is imperative to consider the strengths and limitations of serological test methodologies and interpretation of results, particularly when using data that may affect management and policy for the prevention and control of infectious diseases in wildlife.

  • provide
  • As we understand our customers' situations and needs over time, we have the capability to provide the most effective testing needed to diagnose your transformer's condition. (sdmyers.com)
  • Disinfection --- A small side stream of the filtered ballast water is delivered to the electrolytic unit to generate the oxidants of high concentration (mainly sodium hypochlorite solution), then the oxidants are injected back into the main ballast stream to provide effective disinfection.
