Place definition: The particular portion of space occupied by a physical object or intended for a physical object.
place definition: A physical place or site with its containing structure. May be natural or man-made. The geographic position of a place may or may not be constant.
TACSTD1 Gene definition: This gene is involved in calcium-independent cellular adhesion and in the regulation of immune responses.
Kunecatechins Ointment definition: A topical ointment containing a green tea polyphenol mixture (kunecatechins) with potential antiviral, antibacterial, antioxidant, and chemopreventive activities. Kunecatechins is a partially purified fraction of the aqueous extract of green tea leaves from Camellia sinensis and contains catechins and other green tea components. Catechins, polyphenolic antioxidant plant metabolites or flavonoids, comprise most of the drug substance in kunecatechins with epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) present as the primary catechin. Catechins may inhibit basic functions of human papillomavirus (HPV), counteract specific changes in tumor cells, affect cell signaling, and stimulate the immune system. Topical application of kunecatechins ointment has been reported to reduce HPV-induced genital and anal warts through a not yet fully understood mechanism, which may involve anti-oxidative activity.
Not Defined definition: No definition provided; unspecified.
Hospital Units; Medicare Defined Swing Bed Unit definition: A unit of a hospital that has a Medicare provider agreement and has been granted approval from HCFA to provide post-hospital extended care services and be reimbursed as a swing-bed unit.
Medicare Defined Swing Bed Unit definition: A unit of a hospital that has a Medicare provider agreement and has been granted approval from HCFA to provide post-hospital extended care services and be reimbursed as a swing-bed unit.Source: Code of Federal Regulations #42, Section 482.66.
Identifier definition: Holds the unique identifier of use cases, interactions and storyboards.
DEFINITION definition: English language definitions of what NCI means by the concept. These are limited to 1024 characters. They may also include information about the definition's source and attribution in a form that can easily be interpreted by software.
Definition definition: A concise explanation of the meaning of a word or phrase or symbol.
Defined Green Tea Catechin Extract definition: A defined, decaffeinated green tea extract, containing polyphenolic flavonol catechins, isolated from the plant Camellia sinensis with antiviral, antioxidant, and potential chemopreventive activities. The primary catechins found in green tea are epicatechin (EC), epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin-3 gallate (ECG), and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), the most potent. As potential chemopreventive agents, catechins scavenge free radicals; inhibit enzymes involved in cell replication and DNA synthesis; interfere with cell-to-cell contact adhesion; and inhibit various intracellular communication pathways required for cell division. In addition, it has been postulated that EGCG may trap growth factors such platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) on cell membranes, immobilizing growth factors on cell membranes and preventing ligand-receptor crosslinking and growth factor receptor activation.
Mutually Defined definition: Characterized or delimited reciprocally, in a mutual or shared manner.
