Ovarian Monodermal and Highly Specialized Teratoma definition: A teratoma of the ovary composed exclusively or predominantly of a single type of tissue derived from the ectoderm or endoderm. A representative example is struma ovarii which is a teratoma composed exclusively or predominantly of thyroid tissue.
INSTRUMENT, MANUAL, SPECIALIZED OBSTETRIC-GYNECOLOGIC definition: An obstetric-gynecologic specialized manual instrument is one of a group of devices used during obstetric-gynecologic procedures to perform manipulative diagnostic and surgical functions (e.g., dilating, grasping, measuring, and scraping), where structural integrity is the chief criterion of device performance. This type of device consists of the following: (1) An amniotome is an instrument used to rupture the fetal membranes. (2) A circumcision clamp is an instrument used to compress the foreskin of the penis during circumcision of a male infant. (3) An umbilical clamp is an instrument used to compress the umbilical cord. (4) A uterine curette is an instrument used to scrape and remove material from the uterus. (5) A fixed-size cervical dilator is any of a series of bougies of various sizes used to dilate the cervical os by stretching the cervix. (6) A uterine elevator is an instrument inserted into the uterus used to lift and manipulate the uterus. (7) A gynecological surgical forceps is an instrument with two blades and handles used to pull, grasp, or compress during gynecological examination. (8) A cervical cone knife is a cutting instrument used to excise and remove tissue from the cervix. (9) A gynecological cerclage needle is a looplike instrument used to suture the cervix. (10) A hook-type contraceptive intrauterine device (IUD) remover is an instrument used to remove an IUD from the uterus. (11) A gynecological fibroid screw is an instrument used to hold onto a fibroid. (12) A uterine sound is an instrument used to determine the depth of the uterus by inserting it into the uterine cavity. (13) A cytological cervical spatula is a blunt instrument used to scrape and remove cytological material from the surface of the cervix or vagina. (14) A gynecological biopsy forceps is an instrument with two blades and handles used for gynecological biopsy procedures. (15) A uterine tenaculum is a hooklike instrument used to seize and hold the cervix or fundus. (16) An internal pelvimeter is an instrument used within the vagina to measure the diameter and capacity of the pelvis. (17) A nonmetal vaginal speculum is a nonmetal instrument used to expose the interior of the vagina. (18) A fiberoptic nonmetal vaginal speculum is a nonmetal instrument, with fiberoptic light, used to expose and illuminate the interior of the vagina.
Foods, Specialized definition: Foods and beverages prepared for use to meet specific needs such as infant foods.
Supporting connective tissue definition: Specialized connective tissue is a connective tissue, which consists of osteocytes and chondrocytes, the intercellular matrix of which is chondrified or calcified.
Supporting connective tissue definition: Specialized connective tissue is a connective tissue, which consists of osteocytes and chondrocytes, the intercellular matrix of which is chondrified or calcified.
Specialized cardiac myocyte definition: Cardiac myocytes that are excitable cells in the myocardium, specifically in the conducting system of heart.
Specialized Center Grant definition: Support all aspects of R&D from basic to clinical and may involve ancillary support activities such as patient care. They differ from program project grants in that they are usually developed in response to an institute initiative and subsequently receive continuous attention from its staff. Centers also may serve as regional or national resources for special research.
Specialized Epithelial Cell definition: A cell that covers the surface of the body and lines its cavities that has a specific function to perform.
Specialized Program of Research Excellence definition: The Specialized Programs of Research Excellence (SPOREs) established by NCI to promote interdisciplinary research and to speed the bi-directional exchange between basic and clinical science to move basic research finding from the laboratory to applied settings involving patients and populations. The goal of the SPORE program is to bring to clinical care settings novel ideas that have the potential to reduce cancer incidence and mortality, improve survival, and to improve the quality of life. SPOREs are funded through specialized center grants (P50s).
Specialized definition: Developed or designed for a special activity or function.
formation of specialized structure for nutrient acquisition from host definition: The assembly by an organism of a cellular component or anatomical structure for the purpose of obtaining nutrients from its host organism. The host is defined as the larger of the organisms involved in a symbiotic interaction. [GOC:mtg_pamgo_17jul06]
formation of specialized structure for nutrient acquisition from other organism during symbiotic interaction definition: The assembly by an organism of a cellular component or anatomical structure for the purpose of obtaining nutrients from a second organism, where the two organisms are in a symbiotic interaction. [GOC:mtg_pamgo_17jul06]
formation by host of specialized structure for nutrient acquisition from symbiont definition: The assembly by an organism of a cellular component or anatomical structure for the purpose of obtaining nutrients from a symbiont organism. The symbiont is defined as the smaller of the organisms involved in a symbiotic interaction. [GOC:mtg_pamgo_17jul06]
entry into host via a specialized structure definition: Penetration via a specialized structure of symbiont into the body, tissues, or cells of the host organism. The host is defined as the larger of the organisms involved in a symbiotic interaction. [GOC:pamgo_curators]
