15] Therefore, the aim of palliative RT is to provide complete pain relief, recalcification and stabilisation of the bone, reduction in the risk of complications (e.
The intravenous administration of the formulation (5 mg/kg) delayed the plasma recalcification time in rabbits and enhanced the release of lipoprotein lipase enzyme significantly (p < 0.
It is interesting that there were variations in the density of the underlying bone, which could have occurred as a result of a simultaneous and temporary bone decalcification and recalcification.
Degeneration and necrosis is followed by regeneration and recalcification.
15) However, early publications suggested that bilirubin infused intracardially to rabbits was associated with prolongation of clotting times in plasma mixed with heparin (heparin tolerance test) or after recalcification at plasma bilirubin level higher than 6 mg/dL and decreased activity of factors II and VII.
In blood samples there were defined the following indices: time of clotting; plasma recalcification time; activated recalcification time of the platelet rich and poor plasma; index of contact activation range (ICAR); index of thrombocytic activators release (ITAR); prothrombin time of the common plasma; fibrinogen concentration; thrombin time of plasma; heparin time; antitrombin III activity (AA III).
An optimum formulation of calcium chloride for recalcification of plasma on the CoaguChek and TAS monitors was developed for ISI calibrations and EQA.
These samples did not require recalcification before testing.
Blood recalcification time, a simple and reliable test to monitor heparin therapy.
Within 10-15 s after recalcification, test plasma was added to the CoaguChek test strip; the observed INR value was recorded.
When PT or PTT is performed, part of the recalcification during testing is to inactivate the excess citrate while simultaneously testing for the concentration of coagulation factors.
