The aim is to describe the association of glucose tolerance measured with three different tools (continuous glucose measurement system - CGMS, oral glucose tolerance testing - OGTT and opt...
Subjects with impaired glucose tolerance will be randomized to receive pioglitazone or metformin for 10 weeks. Measurements of insulin sensitivity, body composition, glucose tolerance, and...
Preoperative anxiety level of patients affects postoperative analgesic consumption. However, there were no studies that showed a relationship between the level of stress tolerance and anal...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether treatment of children and adolescents with Impaired Glucose Tolerance (IGT) with rosiglitazone will lead to improvements in insulin sensiti...
The investigators wish to evaluate the effects of decongestants like oxymetazoline and the lessening of this effect with time called 'tolerance'. The investigators will demonstrate a rever...
The Mycobacterium tuberculosis lineage 4 strains CDC1551 and H37Rv develop tolerance to multiple antibiotics upon macrophage residence. To determine whether macrophage-induced tolerance is a general f...
Oral tolerance is a type of immune hypo-responsiveness induced by oral administration of food or harmless gastrointestinal antigens. It is evident that the induction of oral tolerance can protect our ...
This study investigated tolerance of Australian native grass species Astrebla lappacea, Themeda australis, and Austrostipa scabra and a tree species Acacia harpophylla to different concentrations of a...
Pesticides are a ubiquitous contaminant in aquatic ecosystems. Despite the relative sensitivity of aquatic species to pesticides, growing evidence suggests that populations can respond to pesticides b...
The present review discusses current developments in tolerance induction for solid organ transplantation with a particular emphasis on chimerism-based approaches. It explains the basic mechanisms of c...
The normal lack of the ability to produce an immunological response to autologous (self) antigens. A breakdown of self tolerance leads to autoimmune diseases. The ability to recognize the difference between self and non-self is the prime function of the immune system.
The ability of some cells or tissues to withstand ionizing radiation without serious injury. Tolerance depends on the species, cell type, and physical and chemical variables, including RADIATION-PROTECTIVE AGENTS and RADIATION-SENSITIZING AGENTS.
A species of gram-negative bacteria and an nitrogen inoculum that displays a high intrinsic tolerance to acidity.
A measure of a patient's ability to break down lactose.
The ability of organisms to sense and adapt to high concentrations of salt in their growth environment.
