insemination

 [in-sem″ĭ-na´shun]
the deposit of seminal fluid within the vagina or cervix.
artificial insemination that done by artificial means. There are two primary types: Artificial insemination by husband (AIH) involves depositing the husband's or sexual partner's sperm from a specimen, obtained during masturbation, into the vagina, cervical canal, or uterine cavity of the recipient. Donor insemination or Artificial insemination by donor (AID) involves the same techniques but the sperm is from a donor other than the husband or partner.

AIH

Abbreviation for autoimmune hepatitis; artificial insemination by husband; artificial insemination, homologous.

AIH

Abbrev. for ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION with semen obtained from the husband or partner.

(15) The goal of AIH treatment is complete suppression of inflammatory activity and prevention of cirrhosis and liver failure through induction and maintenance treatment.
Uma vez identificadas as AIHs seriadas de uma mesma internacao, estas foram agrupadas consolidando-se as informacoes variaveis da seguinte forma: a) a data de internacao considerada foi a menor data da serie; b) a data de saida considerada foi a maior data da serie; c) o tempo de permanencia foi calculado pela subtracao entre a data de saida e a data da internacao apos a consolidacao; d) a idade considerada foi a do primeiro registro da serie; e) o diagnostico (segundo a CID-10) (12) considerado foi o do ultimo registro da serie.
Adding to the diagnostic challenge, approximately 20% of patients may be negative for all major autoantibodies and still present with the clinical, laboratory, and histological features of AIH. Although AIH is classified as Type 1 or Type 2, treatment approaches do not differ between them (Hirschfield & Webb, 2018).
All 28 patients had biopsy specimens available at diagnosis and presented with a typical picture of AIH features, with moderate to severe interface hepatitis and lymphocytic infiltrates, as well as PBC features.
All these pathological findings were compatible with the diagnosis of AIH, and the postbiopsy score was 17, thereby confirming the diagnosis of AIH.
ConA can activate T cells to rapidly induce AIH. To determine the functions of L-THP on ConA-induced hepatitis, serum and liver tissues were collected 2, 8, and 24 h post-ConA treatment.
A scoring system has been implemented to determine the prognosis of AIH. In 1993 a scoring system was done by the international panel and revised in 1999.
The aim of this work was to investigate the role of HSC activation and the level of TGF-[beta]s in acute autoimmune liver lesions induced by ConA in mice and to reveal the possible mechanism and association of inflammation and liver fibrosis in AIH model.
Histological performances of AIH and DILI have certain similarities, including interface hepatitis, inflammatory cells infiltration in portal area, and centrilobular 3 zone necrosis [17, 41].
Over 90% of patients with AIH will respond to immunosuppressive therapy.
Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a complex chronic autoimmune liver disease of unknown etiology that occurs as one's immune system attacks liver cells and creates a chronic inflammatory state which may not only progress to cirrhosis but also could cause acute liver failure.
Autoimmune hepatitis (AIH) is a potentially treatable chronic liver disease (CLD) of unknown cause, characterized by ongoing hepatocellular necroinflammation which may progress to cirrhosis if untreated.
