Inclusion Phenomena and Molecular Recognition

The 5th foreign Symposium on Inclusion Phenomena and Molecular attractiveness was once held September 18-23, 1988 at Orange seashore, Alabama. This prior very profitable symposia in Warsaw (1980), Parma (1982), Tokyo (1984), and Lancaster (1986). the final tone of the development at Orange seashore used to be expressed elegantly through Fraser Stoddart on the shut of his lecture: "At a gathering like this, i believe we should always be asking ourselves extra brazenly the place we've come from and the place we'll.

Example text

Also, we found markedly increased serum MIF levels in ARDS up to 14 days, which, in accordance with previously reported high local MIF levels in the lungs (49), suggests that the balance between MIF (proinflammatory) and corti sol (antiinflammatory) plays a role in the intensity of the inflammatory reaction. This might have important implications for GCtreatment of sepsis or ARDS (8,49-51). Both increased MIF levels and the presence of ARDS were independent predictors of adverse outcome. GC are essential for survival during critical illness partly due to their potent antiinflammatory effects.

For data that were not normally distributed, the Mann-Whitney U test was used if only two groups were compared, and the Kruskal-Wallis one-way ANOVA test was used if more than two groups were compared. Serial data were analyzed using Friedman's repeated measures ANOVA on ranks, followed by Dunn's test for specific comparisons. The Spearman rank order correlation coefficient (r s ) was used to estimate the relation between MIF and the other variables. We used two-factor ANOVA to determine whether survivors and non-survivors as well as patients with ARDSand non-ARDS differed with respect to the MIF level and to calculate the interference between the presence or absence of survival and ARDS.
