adjoining
the advantage of this method over the adjacent-years dummy-variable method is that in the adjacent-year regressions the only parameters that is allowed to vary between the two adjacent years is the year dummy variable, whereas in the pure hedonic method all coefficient estimates (interpreted as shadow prices of the characteristics) can change between years. in the pure hedonic method, these yearly shadow prices are weighted by fixed weights—either the base-period (laspeyres) or the current-period (paasche) characteristics. bls.gov
protective environment (pe) is a specialized patient-care area, usually in a hospital, with a positive air flow relative to the corridor (i.e., air flows from the room to the outside adjacent space). the combination of hepa filtration, high numbers of air changes per hour (>12 ach), and minimal leakage of air into the room creates an environment that can safely accommodate patients who have undergone allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (hsct). cdc.gov
the general concept underlying ma definitions is that of a core area containing a large population nucleus together with adjacent communities having a high degree of economic and social integration with that core. this concept views the metropolitan area as a functional entity that is larger than the continuously built-up or urbanized area around the principal city or cities. census.gov
based on the seven-continent model, and grouping islands with adjacent continents, africa has the most countries with 54. europe contains 49 countries and asia 48, but these two continents share five countries: azerbaijan, georgia, kazakhstan, russia, and turkey. north america consists of 23 sovereign states, oceania has 14, and south america 12. cia.gov
of course, there are advantages and disadvantages to each of these options. it is very important that you see a quality dentist to go over your options based upon the amount of bone you have, the number of healthy adjacent teeth, your overall medical health, your age, and your financial capabilities. everydayhealth.com
this formula works with any parallelogram. if you are dealing with a rectangle, then the altitude corresponds to one of the sides of the rectangle and the base corresponds to one of its adjacent sides. so the area of a rectangle is the product of the lengths of two adjacent sides. if you are working with a square, then adjacent sides are congruent, so the area is the square of the length of one of its sides. factmonster.com
12 addiction is modeled empirically as adjacent complementarity – the value of consumption today is higher if consumption was greater in the past. we capture adjacent complementarity in a slightly non-standard way. if aincreases, then st+1 increases as well. because higher st+1 leads to greater withdrawal costs, utility is lower in t+1. given the concavity of the utility function, this increases the return to a t+1. an alternative way of capturing adjacent complementary would be to include a term α3a t st , where α 3>0 reflects adjacent complementarity. adding such a term would not materially affect our analysis. hhs.gov

in addition, mayo clinic is investigating strategies to treat infrapatellar saphenous nerve neuroma. one approach involves ultrasound-guided hydrodissection of the nerve from the adjacent interfascial planes, followed by a corticosteroid injection. a preliminary mayo clinic study found that this minimally invasive procedure significantly reduced medial knee pain for nine of 16 patients studied. mayoclinic.org
contiguous gene syndrome: a disorder due to deletion of multiple gene loci that are adjacent to one another. contiguous gene syndromes are characterized by multiple, apparently unrelated, clinical features caused by deletion of the multiple adjacent genes. each of the individual genes within a contiguous region, when mutated, gives rise to a distinct feature. medicinenet.com
weakness, numbness, or other loss of nerve function may indicate that an aneurysm may be causing pressure on adjacent brain tissue. symptoms such as a severe headache, nausea, vomiting, vision changes or other neurological changes can indicate the aneurysm has ruptured and is bleeding into the brain. a ruptured intracranial aneurysm causes intracranial bleeding and is considered very dangerous. medlineplus.gov
they demonstrated that both low and high doses of the cells led to motor recovery. they also determined that expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor was higher in the adjacent sites, where differentiation into neurons was greater than into astrocytes. also, the microenvironments of both inter-lesional and adjacent transplant sites successfully supported the engrafted cells. medpagetoday.com
similar findings occur with inflammatory orbital pseudotumor and orbital infection, but there is no history of trauma or adjacent focus of infection (eg, sinusitis) with inflammatory orbital pseudotumor. neuroimaging with ct or mri is required. a useful imaging feature in distinguishing an infection from noninfectious inflammation is the presence of adjacent sinus involvement in orbital infection. for chronic or recurrent disease, biopsy may be used to find evidence of an underlying medical condition. merckmanuals.com
methods: the expression of malat1 was examined in 45 pdac and 25 adjacent non-cancerous ffpe tissues, as well as in five pdac cell lines and a normal pancreatic epithelium cell line hpde6c-7, using qrt-pcr. the relationship between malat1 level and clinicopathological parameters of pdac was analyzed with the kaplan-meier method and cox proportional hazards model. nih.gov
if compiling several pieces of content is a part of a puzzle exercise, then the cah page layout is another, part mental, part visual and spacial. we adhere to master pages and styles to make the layout consistent. within these parameters, however, we constantly struggle to make all the content fit, by aligning adjacent sections, using iterative page shifts, moving text frames, and changing spacing and entire sections to accommodate the text. usa.gov
