The ability to measure protein C levels at the bedside in critically ill patients, without any delay by the central laboratory would be a big step forward in assessing prognosis , and may the clinical decision-making in the early stages of the development of organ dysfunction. Influence .Using genetic strategy, the investigators zeroed into two chromosomal regions which affected the difference in epileptic severity in both strains of mice. One of these regions, your mouse seemed KCNV2 gene (mouse equivalent of the human KCNV2 gene strongest strongest a candidate gene in relation to their potential for a change in electrical activities of neurons.
