The values for these samples were used as the "before" and "TO" measurements in statistical analyses or blood chemistry and immunocompetence
Diets supplemented with Eucalyptus improved performance and immunocompetence
of laying hens .
The trouble with the immunocompetence
handicap hypothesis is that masculinity is not universally attractive to women.
Carotenoid dependent signals: indicators of foraging efficiency, immunocompetence
or detoxification ability?
The pace of life model proposes the great importance of immune function in tropical birds has a cascading effect; it reduces basal metabolic rate and reproductive effort to save energy and reduces testosterone to maintain immunocompetence
, all of which result in a longer adult life span.
Before establishment of standardized HLA-DR quantification at the Institute of Medical hninunology/Charite Berlin, results had been given in "% HLA-DR+ monocytis" with a reference value >60% considered indicative of immunocompetence
, values of 60%-30% considered indicative of moderate to severe immunodepression, and values <30% considered strongly diminished expression or immunoparalysis [for details, see Ref.
Results of this current study are inconsistent with the immunocompetence
hypothesis despite males that maintain complex mate attraction signals.
We are a group of investigators working since 1979 on the process through which the human fetus acquires immunocompetence
1] Hosts infected with Strongyloides, like our patient, may have long periods of asymptomatic disease and may only become symptomatic with waning immunocompetence
and heavy worm burdens.
The availability of more basic knowledge about CNS-immune system interactions may lend itself to further understanding of depression as a disorder and of its relationship to immunocompetence
and physical health and illness.
Although additional large-scale studies and clinical trials are essential, currently available evidence suggests antioxidant status influences an individual's immunocompetence
, as well as their risk of cardiovascular disease, some forms of cancer, and a number of age-related degenerative disorders.
Lo and behold, only in the group performing t'ai chi was there a marked improvement in immunocompetence
