Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A method of analyzing the variation in utilization of health care in small geographic or demographic areas. It often studies, for example, the usage rates for a given service or procedure in several small areas, documenting the variation among the areas. By comparing high- and low-use areas, the analysis attempts to determine whether there is a pattern to such use and to identify variables that are associated with and contribute to the variation.
Method for measuring viral infectivity and multiplication in cultured cells. Clear lysed areas or plaques develop as the viral particles are released from the infected cells during incubation. With some viruses, the cells are killed by a cytopathic effect; with others, the infected cells are not killed but can be detected by their hemadsorptive ability. Sometimes the plaque cells contain viral antigens which can be measured by immunofluorescence.
Endovascular procedure in which atheromatous plaque is excised by a cutting or rotating catheter. It differs from balloon and laser angioplasty procedures which enlarge vessels by dilation but frequently do not remove much plaque. If the plaque is removed by surgical excision under general anesthesia rather than by an endovascular procedure through a catheter, it is called ENDARTERECTOMY.
Management review designed to evaluate efficiency and to identify areas in need of management improvement within the institution in order to ensure effectiveness in meeting organizational goals.
Dental Plaque Index
An index which scores the degree of dental plaque accumulation.
OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to assess the biocompatibility of orthodontic bands following exposure to the human oral environment. METHODS: Cell adherence and cell morphology of gingival fibro...
Acidogenicity and the levels of mutans streptococci (MS) in dental plaque after the use of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG (LGG) and Lactobacillus reuteri were determined. The study had a randomised, doubl...
The management of patients with asymptomatic carotid disease is currently under debate and new methods are warranted for better risk stratification. The role of the biomechanical properties of the ath...
Although percent plaque components on plaque-based measurement have been used traditionally in previous studies, the impact of vessel-based measurement for percent plaque components have yet to be stu...
It remains uncertain why some plaque ruptures trigger acute coronary syndrome (ACS), whereas others do not. We investigated the anatomic features and tissue factor (TF) expression at the sites of plaq...
This is an open label, single center, controlled study with each subject's two treatment plaque areas assigned by the investigator 1:1 to (a) PH-10 with ambient light exposure and (b) PH-1...
This study aims to develop and refine the use of an intravascular wire to image plaque in the aorta, iliac and femoral artery using MRI. This project aims to use this increased resolution...
To identify new cellular, metabolic, and genomic correlates of atherosclerotic plaque and early pathologic changes in the vascular wall and determine their consequences for coronary heart...
The purpose of the study is to determine if short term (6 months) treatment with statins to lower low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in vascular disease patients with carotid plaque will be ass...
This is an open-label, multicenter study to assess the systemic exposure to calcitriol in the adolescent population. Calcitriol 3µg/g ointment (2 mg/cm² per application) is to be applied...
