The kinetics of development of protein-synthesizing capacity in the imbibing wheat embryo, were studied both in vivo and in vitro. During the first 30 minutes of imbibition protein-synthesizing capacity rises rapidly, lagging about 10 minutes behind water uptake. This rise in synthesizing capacity is accompanied by an increase in polysome content. As(More)
Unexpectedly low hemoglobin oxygen saturation as determined by pulse-oximeter analysis was observed in a patient who underwent an elective surgical procedure. Specific hemoglobin derivatives such as carboxyhemoglobin, methemoglobin, and reduced hemoglobin that have been described to lower pulse-oximetry determination of oxygenation were not detected.(More)
This article reviews the economic dimensions of the CMA's decision-making framework on core and comprehensive services. The framework was developed in a policy context characterized by three government objectives: reduction, reallocation and reassignment of health care resources. One economic-evaluation tool for the determination of core services is(More)
