Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Glycogenosis due to muscle phosphorylase deficiency. Characterized by painful cramps following sustained exercise.

Reduction of the blood calcium below normal. Manifestations include hyperactive deep tendon reflexes, Chvostek's sign, muscle and abdominal cramps, and carpopedal spasm. (Dorland, 27th ed)

A disorder characterized by muscle twitches, cramps, and carpopedal spasm, and when severe, laryngospasm and seizures. This condition is associated with unstable depolarization of axonal membranes, primarily in the peripheral nervous system. Tetany usually results from HYPOCALCEMIA or reduced serum levels of MAGNESIUM that may be associated with HYPERVENTILATION; HYPOPARATHYROIDISM; RICKETS; UREMIA; or other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1490)

Misunderstanding among individuals, frequently research subjects, of scientific methods such as randomization and placebo controls.

A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis.
