can·de·la (cd),

The SI unit of luminous intensity, 1 lumen per m2; the luminous intensity, in a given direction, of a source that emits monochromatic radiation of frequency 540 × 1012 Hz and that has a radiant intensity in that direction of 1/683 W per steradian (solid angle).
Synonym(s): candle


Etymology: L, candela, light
(in optics) the basic unit of measurement for luminous intensity, equal to 1/60 of the luminous intensity of a square centimeter of a black body heated to 1773.5° C or the solidification temperature of platinum, adopted in 1948 as the international standard of luminous intensity. Also called candela [kandē′lə] .
Candesartan vs. Losartan Efficacy Study. A trial comparing the antihypertensive effect of candesartan cilexetil—Atacand®—with losartan— Cozaar®
Conclusion Atacand®, an angiotensin receptor blocker, provided a significantly greater reduction in diastolic blood pressure than Cozaar®


Cardiology A clinical trial–Candesartan versus Losartan Efficacy Comparison–to compare the antihypertensive effect of candesartan cilexetil–Atacand® with losartan. See Candesartan cilexetil.

CANDELS is the first census of dwarf galaxies at such an early epoch on the Universe's history.
Those studies suggest that star formation was a relatively slow process, stretching out over billions of years," explains Harry Ferguson of the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, USA, co-leader of the CANDELS survey.
But CANDELS has found that even at a very early epoch, massive galaxies already contain a lot of dust, in the form of grains of carbon and silicon (in astronomical jargon, "heavy metals").

Up to now, observations of distant galaxies have consistently reinforced the local findings-distant black holes actively accreting in big galaxies only," said coauthor Sandra Faber, University Professor of astronomy and astrophysics at UC Santa Cruz and CANDELS principal investigator.
