The endothelial cell markers von Willebrand Factor (vWF), CD31 and CD34 are lost in glomerulonephritis and no longer correlate with the morphological indices of glomerular sclerosis, interstitial fibrosis, activity and chronicity
. Folia Histochem Cytobiol 2010; 48: 230-6.
Interstitial fibrosis is a sign of chronicity
, only 2 patients in the initial biopsy has mild fibrosis while serial renal biopsies revealed underneath mild interstitial fibrosis in 4 patients, moderate fibrosis in 2 and severe interstitial fibrosis in biopsies in one patient.
As a criterion of uncertainty in individuals with CKD, ambiguity contributes to the individual's inability to derive meaning within the chronicity
and complexity of the illness.
The factors most significantly (p < 0.05) associated with a poorer functional outcome included increasing age, increasing years of dance experience, participation in Indian or Folk styles of dance, diagnosis, joint, and chronicity
Gender symmetry in prevalence, severity, and chronicity
of physical aggression against dating partners by university students in Mexico and USA.
On the level of individual antigens, a significant correlation could be found between CagA or VacA and the chronicity
of inflammation (p = 0.015 or p <0.01, respectively), as well as CagA and the activity of inflammation (p < 0.01) (Figure 3).
Although all IBD biopsies demonstrate chronicity
at some point of the disease course, not all chronicity
equates to IBD.
The treatment of LN is dictated by the class of the disease and degree of activity and chronicity
It is not yet clear whether the gradual chronicity
of depression is a result of the natural disease process or a result of serotonergic drug use.
Histopathology reports of all tonsils removed under the indication of chronic tonsillitis were analyzed and the findings documented and correlated with the degree of chronicity
. The tonsillectomy specimens were fixed in 10% buffered formalin, routinely processed and embedded in paraffin.
One further important consideration to be made in medical pain is its potential for chronicity
, with prevalence of leading pain disorders including lower back pain and chronic migraine indicated at 10.2%8 and 1-3%9 respectively in recent studies.
