COLLOCATIONS FROM CORPUS

■ ADJECTIVE

fasting

■ NOUN

blood

They are mineral salts which are contained in the blood plasma of the horse and they are vital for fluid balance.

Sweat is derived from blood plasma and blood salts.

She was given pain relieving drugs and placed on intravenous drips to replace vital blood plasma and fluids.

cell

In the same biopsy infiltration of the mucosal stroma by a large number of lymphocytes and plasma cells were seen.

These plasma cells produce a homogeneous immunoglobulin protein which stains as a well-defined peak in the gamma region.

Reduced numbers of intestinal mucosal plasma cells have been reported, with a return to normal values after antibiotic treatment.

Bone destruction is commonly seen in this disorder with the plasma cells forming densely packed groups in the lytic areas.

Superficial plasma cells infiltrated underlying lymphoid cells.

In Bence Jones proteinuria there is an oVerproduction of one type of light chain by a single clone of plasma cells .

Therefore, the plasma cells produce either an excessive amount of kappa light chains or an excessive amount of lambda light chains.

concentration

Its usefulness in this disease has been questioned, and a maximum efficacy was obtained in one report at lower plasma concentrations .

The results of gastric juice against plasma concentrations according to H pylori status are shown in Figure 3.

The acute phase response also involves changes in the plasma concentrations of a number of liver synthesised proteins.

gastrin

Helicobacter pylori increases plasma gastrin concentrations by 50% to 100% and values fall to normal after the organism has been eradicated.

Despite this reduction in plasma gastrin , no consistent changes in rates of acid secretion have been documented after eradication treatment.

The plasma gastrin concentrations increased from group to group as expected from the dose given.

We therefore also plotted individual dose-response curves of log plasma gastrin against the basal-subtracted acid output.

Discussion Our current results confirm that treatment which both heals duodenal ulcers and eradicates H pylori significantly decreases basal plasma gastrin concentrations.

In another study by Ryberg etal the enterochromaffin like cell labelling index was shown to increase linearly with the plasma gastrin concentration.

The plasma gastrin concentrations in the various groups increased in the same order of magnitude as expected from the gastrin dose given.

glucose

Achieved plasma glucose and insulin concentrations were determined as the mean of the 50, 55, and 60 minute samples.

Six subjects did not consent to a glucose tolerance test and tolerance was determined from fasting plasma glucose and insulin concentrations.

membrane

It ought to help you locate our protein in cellular plasma membranes .

Within the epidermal cells microtubules connect the desmosomes of the interdigitating regions with cone-like depressions of the outer epidermal plasma membrane .

The distributional asymmetries of phospholipids in the plasma membrane of erythrocytes and platelets are shown in Fig. 2.

Firstly, by studying radiolabelled ion uptake into isolated plasma membrane vesicles.

Carbachol, gastrin, and histamine all bind to specific receptors on parietal cell plasma membranes .

The plasma membrane is also thought to be far less rigid a structure than originally proposed.

potassium

HYPOKALEMlA A low plasma potassium concentration is not always accompanied by a deficit in total body potassium.

Occasionally, a substantially increased platelet or white cell count may lead to apparent increases in plasma potassium concentration.

protein

Secondly, there is an enhanced permeability of the abomasal epithelium to macromolecules such as pepsinogen and plasma proteins .

The oedematous patients had similar lung function, smoking histories, and plasma protein concentrations to the patients without oedema.

■ VERB

increase

Helicobacter pylori increases plasma gastrin concentrations by 50% to 100% and values fall to normal after the organism has been eradicated.

In another study by Ryberg etal the enterochromaffin like cell labelling index was shown to increase linearly with the plasma gastrin concentration.

EXAMPLES FROM CORPUS

In blood, the majority is found in erythrocytes with only minor quantities in plasma or serum.

It can be seen that human sweat is actually hypotonic ie it contains a lower salt concentration than the plasma .

Occasionally, a substantially increased platelet or white cell count may lead to apparent increases in plasma potassium concentration.

Once it is absorbed, calcium is added to plasma .

Six subjects did not consent to a glucose tolerance test and tolerance was determined from fasting plasma glucose and insulin concentrations.

The importance of the plasma triglyceride concentration as a risk factor for coronary heart disease in the general population is still uncertain.

This yellow coloration is also visible in serum and plasma specimens in vitro.
